    sup guys - i just posted this up in hot deals section:

    Taken from slickdeals; i have not signed up yet - i'm not sure if i should or not but i'm passing along this to you oters who might not check out slickdeals as religiously as i do:

    Quote:
    http://www.cookiehost.com

    2GB Storage
    20GB Bandwidth per month
    2 Hosted domains
    Fantastico
    cPanel
    Discounted ($5, $8, or $11) price valid first year only

    More info on plans:
    http://www.cookiehost.com/hosting-plans.php

    Link to offer page:
    http://www.cookiehost.com/ccc.php

    Coupon codes
    "mini" for $5/yr - Mini plan only
    "midi" for $8/yr - Midi plan only
    "maxi" for $11/yr - Maxi plan only EDIT: Thanks guys, it's only $11 instead of $15.

    I'm using this host as my current provider. Signed up 3-4 days ago and I'm extremely happy with them. Took less than an hour to get my account setup and to redirect my domain name. The speed is great compared to Netfirms which would crawl. There are also a ton of tools available to you. I've never had to rely on support yet, so I can't comment about it. Anyways I would rate these guys higher than the sea of low level providers like Dreamhost, Netfirms, etc

    HostGator pisses all over them, and I don't even like HG.

    Use the code "jury" at checkout to get first month for under $5.

    I get their "unmetered" swamp plan for $12/month. It's pretty decent - but they will bitch if you host copyrighted shit or make it a file dump. (image uploader, etc)

    I don't like their back-end. CPanel FTW... which is why I switched to HG.

    they've changed then...

    it sure wasn't cPanel when I was with them. It was something they wrote IIRC. It honestly lasted all of 2 weeks before I switched (and then felt the wrath of buying a domain and space together as I didn't get to touch my domain for a good 3 months)

    Never register a domain with a host - that's just stupid :rofl:

    Get it on godaddy, use the coupon codes I posted, then DNS it to them AFTER you sign up and receive your account info.

    HostGator isn't too bad for the price. I host all my porn on them, and OT gets great speeds.

    I have my site through them. Its been pretty decent. I have the maxi plan. When I registered it was up within minutes, even the domain I registered. Came out to about $20 with the domain. Had it for almost 3 months now. Their customer support is pretty fast with replying and Ive only maybe a 4 hour downtime because of some upgrade issue on their side.

    They seem decent for a personal site.

    I've got to say... I signed up with them a few weeks ago and I've been really pleased so far. Their service is fast... they aren't rocket surgeons, but they're not half bad either.

    I give it a :bigthumb: for the money!
