Since December 2005 I have been on paid hosting by 1and1.com. I
found them to be very reliable and feature filled. I highly
them and they have many plans. I chose the "Home" plan and have
more bandwidth quota and space quota than I really need. I looked
others hosts, but found the best value here. I am on one of the
hosted plans, so the uptime I have actually seen is around 99.99%.
$4.99 a month, I get 120 GB of disk space, two domains, and
of monthly bandwidth, of which I maybe use 5 GB. I also love
1,200 email accounts available for my domain, under POP3, Webmail,
the best of all: IMAP. The price is very
reasonable while the bandwidth and disk space allowances have
grown tremendously. My neighbor also has used 1and1.com for longer
I had the start of my domain in about an hour's time after
registering. They do offer private domain registration, to keep
phone number and email address private.
I use no cookies or spyware
any of my pages here and there are no pop ups. The ad below is the
one my domain.
