Can I get my own hosting setup for cheaper than £2.50 per month?

Can I get my own hosting setup for cheaper than £2.50 per month?

That is what I paid for unlimited hosting with a provider. I am stopping using them cos for 2 months in a row they suspend my account due to some billing error where my account says unpaid on their system even tho my paypal subscription was paid as usual.

Initially I had thought I won't need hosting at all and I won't for 90% of things since I just do redirects straight from the registrars but sometimes I want to use cloaking (marketer) and hosting maybe small couple of page site.

What would be my best option for this kind of use case?

  • Without knowing location requirements, I think buy shared would fit the bill nicely!

    Yes you can, any provider who advertises 'Unlimited Hosting' is a complete con! I'd never trust anyone with my money who advertised 'Unlimited' everything and everyone has a limit.

  • what about small shared hosting with annual subscription ?

  • @SV_Nick

    Well, there are hosts that oversell to extents we've yet to witness, so it's pretty much the same if someone offers 999TB of disk space :p

    Judging by your question, you're asking the wrong crowd. If you're buying up domains and re-purposing auctioned/expired domains, you won't want to use the same host for all of them, you'll want to use many unrelated providers.

  • Im not doing anything to do with what you're saying. I only buy domains very occasionaly and redirect traffic through them that's all

    So why do you need any kind of hosting? Just use the registrars, or a DNS service that offers URL redirection. It's much cheaper than hosting, often free with the registrar.

  • Yes I am doing that right now but there is a couple things I wanna do like cloaking and if I want to hosting a small site or landing page then I will need it won't i or there are free options for that?

    small couple of page site.

    Does this mean static sites? if so, you might want to try out BunnyCDN - My Ref. Link. Not actually a 'Hosting' provider, but if your usage is low, you might end up paying less than $1/y ($0.02/GB/M storage + $0.01/GB Bandwidth in US/EU)

  • Go with PageClick and ImpactShared. They have some real cheap yearly deals well within your budget.

  • Sorry guys I think I didnt explain my requirements properly. I didnt mean unlimited storage I meant unlimited addon domains and as I thought about it nowadays I wouldnt need even that.

    But 3 would be too limiting since occasionally I buy new domains for new projects.

    I would say 10 addon domains would be plenty and in terms of space needed, since as I said it would only be to host a script or two or a couple page website, then maybe a couple hundred megs should do the job.

    So with that new info what kind of prices would I be looking at? cheers.

    If 2-5 Gb disk is enough I would say my $5/year package in either NL or Phoenix would be good enough.

  • Wow the deals keep getting better and better! :) Cheers guys. If I am using for redirects only main I shouldnt be using much bandwidth right so there should be any worry of that? I better look on my old hosting and see to confirm what my averages were.

  • AnthonySmithAnthonySmith Member, Provider

    just keep in mind that that better and better should not be based on price alone, that is of course unless you want to be making a new thread every 3 months for new suggestions when you get let down over and over :)

  • Sure but my requirements are very low. A reliable service is what is most important. I would imagine any bad traders would have been called out who have posted here. Certainly not a foolproof belief but I would imagine it would be more likely since this is a quite closeknit forum.
