    Can anyone recommend a webhost? Mine's going tits-up so I need another. The site is never updated and hardly ever used so I don't need anything flash.

    Current stats look like this;
    72mb used
    1 e-mail account
    5 mysql databases used
    1 domain used
    3 subdomains created
    In December I apparently had 2368 unique visits (probably a few bots there...)

    Free is what I have now and is always good. ;)
    I'm looking for something stable, cheap and has cpanel.

    you currently have a free host which gives you 5 MySQL dayabase's? that's good. I'm with 1and1 myself, think i pay £50 or so a year, they are reliable but i think i only get 2 MySQL's

    My free package offers;
    200mb space
    2gb bandwidth p/m
    15 e-mail accounts
    3 subdomains
    1 parked domain (this is on top of the domain I already have)
    1 add-on domain
    15 ftp accounts
    15 mysql databases
    cpanel
    no adverts (because I'm an old 'customer')

    Hosts who offer a very limited amount of databases etc annoy me. It's no big deal to them. They do it to encourage you to spend more on your package. I could happily run everything I do from one database anyway.

    I've been with my host for over two years and they've been pretty stable but are currently not support free accounts as they offer a paid service as well.

    sounds like a good deal you've got already.

    i've been thinking of binning mine off because i need to make some cut backs (cash wise), but i have a web directory running on it so I can't just get rid, it wouldn't be fare to the people who have paid for links. Don't suppose you would be interested in taking it off my hands would you?

    1&1 is very cheap and stable. It's all I ever used before, so I cant recommend much else.
