    Win2000 Host u/$10/month

    Okay, I was trying to get some free hosting in return for some design work, but i dont think anyones interested

    What i'm looking for is a win2000 host, with at least 200mb space, 10-15GB bandwidth/month (or more), ASP, Access, MSSQL, mySQL databases, and unlimited email addys would be nice... for $10 or under

    What about www.hostonce.com they seem almost exactly what i'm looking for (and around $5/month too ).

    Thanks.

    Thumbs down Re: Win2000 Host u/$10/month

    Don't trust any Unlimited hosting Company, nobody can provide real unlimited service......Their service would make u very very trouble in the future....
    , welcome!
    My another website is coming soon - welcome, hehe

    Yes, usually i wouldnt, but the finerprint does say that if your site degrades performance so that other users are greatly effected, then you may have to renegotaite plans.... there are some unlimited things i trust, some i dont but i dont intend to be pushing their servers to the limit or anything, dont get me wrong, i'm not chooseing them for thier unlimited offer at all. If they had limits I would be just as happy.

    Come on guys, i need this host soon, and i need your opinion so I dont get ripped....

    Interesting posts worth reading about on this company can be found here.

    Here's a few more from WHT.
    here
    and here

    Don't let the price blind you, if it's too good to be true there's something to go wrong. That host looks certainly seems like trouble.

    Google also turns up quite a number of pages on this host.

    thanks seer, i just read those comments at hostsearch a little while ago.... looks like this company has a bad rep.

    I'm now looking at readyhosting.com, they seem pretty good?

    Readyhosting looks good, I didn't really look around all that much but if they're shady you'll usually find plenty on a search.

    There's a nice story here involving Readyhost, just be warned there's MIDI..

    Plat, when I get back to work, I'll talk to my boss about hosting you, prolly for a few cents. Whats $10 (AUS yeah?) in UK Sterling?

    Oh, and what will be on the site and stuff?

    BTW, you can get ASP, access, MSSQL (will cost extra tho) unlimited e-mail and bandwidth and 200meg or whatever you need.

    Don't use Readyhosting they will attempt to charge you as much as they can.
