Webhosts

Can anyone here recommend a good Win2K webhost that costs at or below $10.00/ month?

Thanks.

Yoav:

Check out http://www.connecticut-web.com - $20/year.  I opened my account a couple of weeks ago...seems to work just fine...ASP.NET + SQL Server included.

Try CyberTec:
http://www.highspeedhost.net/cnet/
$95/year for Windows 2000, 500MB web space, FrontPage, Active Server Pages, Access databases, SQL Server (extra cost), unlimited email, Perl, etc.

Or, check the lists at c|net, such as:
http://webservices.cnet.com/html/aisles/Most_Popular_-_Hosting_Plans.asp
or start at:
http://www.cnet.com/internet/0-3799.html

If you only want a small amount of web space or don't need ASP, etc, then there are providers available for much less than $10/month.

I can recommend an excellent FreeBSD hosting service that costs ~$20/year. They have excellent administration and support, the $20 packages includes lotsa stuff, e.g. FrontPage, FTP, webmail with SSL, IMAP, CGI access, ability to upload your own executables (if you want a C / C++), a private MySQL database, and more [ see http://34sp.com/hostingfeatures.shtml ].

This sounds like an advert, but I'm not affiliated with them in any way except being a very satisfied customer. I see you're looking for a Win2K server. If the reason is that you need ASP / ASP.NET, and your app works on Mono, you might be able to get them to load mod_mono for you (they don't officially support it, though). There are also ASP/VB to PHP converters that may help.

Check out www.alentus.com

Economy Plan - $9.95/month
Setup Fee: $15.00

It is worth it though despite the setup fee.  Never had a problem with them and fast support.  Although I haven't needed their support in a while though.

Reading this thread I opened an account with http://www.webhost4life.com yesterday evening.

The website was set-up by this morning.

I had a customer support request and 10 minutes later it was solved. So far I am a happy customer of http://www.webhost4life.com
