Anybody know of any good webhosts?

I need something along the lines of 3,000MB disk storage and 100GB bandwidth for $6.95-$9.95 a month. I also need to be able to set up additional domain names with e-mail accounts.

If you could give me some names that'd be much appreciated.

You'll have some difficulty getting that much monthly bandwidth for that price I think. The 3GB disk space should be easily accomplished though.


3 GB of Disk Space
50 GB Monthly Bandwidth
Unlimited Email
Includes cPanel and Fantastico

Only $6/Month or $65/Year
and

7 GB of Disk Space
75 GB Monthly Bandwidth
Unlimited Email
Includes cPanel and Fantastico

Only $15/Month or $170/Year
are available from the host I use though:
www.surpasshosting.com (http://www.surpasshosting.com)

the second one allows three additional second level domains and unlimited subdomains. Unlimited email as well I believe. Not sure about the first one though.

The host I use, U2mike.com has a "King Size" plan with those exact 3GB/100GB specs and unlimited domains. Most everything else is unlimited under this plan, too. The control panel is DirectAdmin and Installatron is included.

Price on the site is $29.95/month, but I signed up for a reseller account during a half-price sale that is still going on, so you should be able to get this for $15.

Plans List (http://u2mike.com/index2.php?page=hosting)

If that interests you, contact the sales department via their contact form (http://www.u2mike.com/index2.php?page=contact) and see if you can get the King Size plan under the "half-price sale advertised on WebHostingTalk."

At those specs and price range you are most likey going to be stuck on a sever that's been oversold.

How do reseller accounts work? Are they a good way to host many different domains cheaply?

How do reseller accounts work? Are they a good way to host many different domains cheaply?With the DirectAdmin panel, a reseller account is the only way to have multiple users within the same account. (Multiple users are handy if you want to give other users limited access to the resources of the account. Domains can only be assigned to one user, but the reseller can access the resources of all of the users.) I don't know enough about cPanel and the Ensim panel to know whether reseller accounts are possible or handy.

As for the "cheaply" question, assuming your host doesn't mind, with a reseller account, you can make a few $$$ by subletting the unused disk space and bandwidth to "customers" of your own or even friends who rent space from you.

I pay $100/year for a 5GB/60GB reseller account, so I'm not paying this host much more (or less) for the resources than a big user account does. Mostly, I like the additional control that I get with a reseller account.

I am using Ipower right now. They are good but they won't give me any e-mail addresses for my additional domain names. I'd have to drop an extra 100 bucks and buy a whole other account, which I really don't want to do.
