    1) The owner
    Ankit Gupta is the owner of Cernax.com, a unique web hosting company. He's been doing IT work since the late 90's. When he started Cernax, he decided it would be a business run around customer service, reliability, uptime, and affordable prices.

    2) More Information
    a) Server Specs
    Dual Xeon 2.8GHz CPU’s, 1-2GB ECC RAM, Raid 1 Hard Drives and a Backup drive, 99.5% Uptime Guarantee

    b) Network Information
    I could explain all this myself, but you can just go to his website, www.cernax.com, and take a look yourself

    3) Plans
    Here are two plans he has right now, one is a special for this month taken directly from http://www.cernax.com:

    There are other plans on the site too if you need more space. All the plans come with a 10 Day Money Back Guarantee and a 99.5% Uptime Guarantee.

    4) Why Cernax?
    Cernax uses Raid 1 setups so everything you upload is automatically mirrored onto another hard drive. This way, if a hard drive ever fails, the server will keep running off of the other drive. Besides the mirror hard drive, they keep nightly/weekly/monthly backups.

    5) Specials
    If you go here: http://cernax.net/topic.php?id=8, you'll see a $50 Google Adwords link. If you go to google.com and search for something, on the right side you'll see sponsored listings, that's what this is for. There is also a 20% TemplateMonster discount on the forum. Keep in mind the forum was very recently started and so activity is slow, however he has been in business quite some time.

    6) How To Get Started
    To get started, you'll first need a domain name. I reccomend namecheap, .info domains are only $2.88. Once you have that, you can order a hosting account and follow the instructions here: http://www.helpdesk.cernax.com/index.php?x=&mod_id=2&id=2

    Contact: You can contact Ankit directly at ankit@cernax.com. If you're going on the Expanded plan, e-mail him and he can probably get you a nice deal! If you're going on a monthly plan, you can probably get a free domain name ;)

    Hmm well. I am actually looking for a new host....

    Do you have PHP that will support photo galleries? and not give me annoying array problems?


    Also - can I purchase extra subdomains?
