    I'm looking to put up a sight for my family. I'll only need about 500 mb or so. I have the domain name already as I've had the sight up for the last 3 years... I didn't renew with the last hosting company so I'm looking for a new one. I was using Web Hosting Metro. Who's got a good, cheap hosting company?

    500 mb bandwidth or disk space?

    I have used many hosting companies and am a big fan of www.affordablehost.com.

    Maybe I am just behind the times. The link by Clevebucks looks great for you, especially since you need a lot of disk space. Maybe Clevebucks can ellaborate for you how the features are and how the service has been.

    Nate I am Nate and I approved this message.

    Check out www.bluehost.com. They only have one package but it's good. 2G of storage, 75G monthly transfer (bandwidth). They use Cpanel. Good customer service.

    Yearly cost $95. Free setup and domain. You also get up to 20 subdomains free.

    They're a good outfit.

    Okay, my last post - not trying to hijack.

    I am a big fan of Cpanel, like nate says his service uses. I would go for Cpanel if possible. Also if possible-- try to find a place that has been around for 5 years or so.

    I guess I should've added more than a link...

    I have used this company for about 5 years now. The cost has been very reasonable. I really like the fact that I have unlimited POP e-mail accounts. I use one for regular use and another for signups and spam. Also give them to family to use. As for the hosting, I haven't noticed any problems with speed or accessibility in a long time. Granted I don't get as much use out of it as I once did, but still have not had any real problems. Customer service is not bad. If you try to reach them through e-mail it's hit-or-miss it seems, but they do have free toll-free help for more pressing issues.

    The bronze plan would be good for a personal site, but if the silver plan has just about everything a small-medium site would need.
