Awhile back someone postd about three free years website hosting (at I was wondering if anyone knows of any similar deals now (the first offer has expired).

If not, does anyone care to recommend website hosting providers? Do you have comments on the service, price, etc.?

Just remember, you get what you pay for.

Make sure your host provides over 99% uptime. I had a free host a long time ago and their server crashed all the time, I could never get through to technial support, etc. I spent way more than it was worth trying to keep my site up and running.

I switched to because their reputation is excellent. I've been with them for over 2 years now and their service is impeccable. My site never crashes either, which means I'm not losing sales!

their basic plan starts at $9.95 per month. The next plan up is $17.95 per month. Check them out.
