    As some of you know, I currently am the webmaster of a carnival company. The site is currently hosted on my comcast account (go ahead laugh..lol :rolleyes: ) Anyways, I am trying to talk the guy into switching to another host, so that not only will we get more space, but we will have more availavble options to us. I need the cheapest and most reliable server/host out there! I'm calling all TSG members to help me..lol

    Thanx :D

    Thanx Big-K. Does 150m have advertisements anywhere? I'm also looking for somewhere "Professional." But as of right now, I think anything will do.

    actually 150m is a free host so yes, it has ads. All i've seen is the banners at...just look at my site and you'll see what ads they give.

    Cheapest and most reliable are mutually exclusive...a reliable host isn't going to be the cheapest.
    Need more details though. Do you want Windows or Linux hosting? How much space, bandwidth, etc.

    I just need something comparable to what I have, doesn't matter (linux or windows), I only have 25 MB of space I need at least 50 MB. I need a pretty decent amount of bandwith, 25GB should do. Fatcow.com seemed like it may be the best one.

    Are you sure about 25GB of bandwidth? Thats a huge amount for a 50 meg website.... I really doubt you will need that much. Then again, its hard to guess given that Comcast doesn't tell you how much bandwidth you've used. I didn't find a whole lot of info on FatCow even though they have been around for a while. Most people seem to have had a good experience with them. Personally I have had a great experience with http://dr2.net who recently became part of http://mesopia.com
