Well i'm not that great at those web hosting things but, that is kind of wierd. If one hosting service gives you better stuff for the same price as the one that gives you less stuff... I don't know. I think you should go with a web hosting service that you might know like Yahoo or something else that you might know. It may be a little more expensive but to be safe. You never know if they are scaming you or something like that. I would recommend researching those web hosting services. You should make sure that they are reliable. But there are tons of web hosting services out there! So start researching and make sure you aren't being ripped off, that the company you know is reliable, and the hosting service gives you enough storage, bandwith transfer, and all that good stuff. So good luck! :whistling:

I had a webhosting plan with godaddy.com and was very pleased with them. at the time they had the best hosting packages for the price. Not sure about today, there's probably better hosts by now but figured I'd mention them if you haven't already checked them out. also, you might want to look into the specs of the servers the hosting company uses. you may get a better price but lower performance. anyways, good luck.

Well I need to know how many web sites your planning on hosting, what content that would be on the website (Memory wise.. If you have videos that takes more memory than regular text), what you would be transfering from your website to the person using the website. GoDaddy is a good service actually I forgot to mention that and they are VERY reliable. And also you need to have a domain name too(example: www.yourdomainhere.com) But to answer your question go to www.godaddy.com and they have everything you need to know about specs. But if your content on your website has a lot of videos, flash, and lots of stuff that take up a lot of memory I suggest a lot of space. But you probably don't need to much space if your hosting just one of your websites. But if you are hosting a lot of websites i would recommend getting somewhat a lot of memory. And also watch out on those web hosting services (I don't think Go Daddy But I don't know) they might have hidden fees, they might charge you stuff without you knowing! So always check that and also some web hosting services charge you less if you use them for a certain time for like a year or two. But I think you should research a lot harder than just Go Daddy. But remember follow my intructions, (the ones I posted in the begining) look at everything and don't get scammed!

Then use Go Daddy and pick the lamest one. and make sure it goes for two years. (There are options for that the more years you use them the lower the price goes) If you want a www.whateveryouwanttoputhere.com then, Go Daddy has a domain name service too. It's about $10.00 a year for a domain name.

If it's a small website, use FreePgs, if it's for a large website, use CrucialWebHost

Setting up a web server has become simplistic these days. Personally, for all of my servers (all located in my room) I use a program called "Xampp". Extremely easy to use, and very straight forward. Comes with tons of options; not to mention the only one making restrictions, is you. If you want to get hard core, you can always use a unix based system that is light on user functionality or system resources, such as: Debian, Slackware, BSD or Xubuntu (etcetera, etcetera).
