    i was searching for a hosting site and i came across this:

    http://www.2mhost.com/

    it looks really cheap but i dont really know much about site hosting, so i wanted to ask if the $2.4/month is a good deal with its features.

    Thank You

    Sin Q

    i would ask them if they place banner ads on your site, a lot of places dont mention that ... i know my hubby signed up for a webhosting site and they had full banner ads all over his site, even obstructing his logo ... he was furious!! :pissed: ... so he dropped them 24 hrs later and they gave him a full refund ... right now we're with

    I would find a host running linux. Why you ask? Because it seems most open source software/scritps are built towards Apache webserver and not for IIS. Plus I personally think PHP is much better the ASP. A host I hear great things about it http://serverfly.com . I personally and not using them but will once I am done with my plan on my current host. But i have several friends who run on their servers and get great reponse, and they have good plans.

    Hey Sin Q I just looked through the site quickly and it doesn't seem that bad a deal. I was expecting them to hit you with a big domain registration fee or setup fee, but there doesn't seem to be any.
    It sounds good, but if your at all concerned you can always look up info on the net in regards to the company.
    Here's something I just found for 2mhost.com http://www.hostsearch.com/showcomment.asp?companycode=3404
