    I'm looking to move my site www.zencollegelife.com to a web host. Right now it is hosted on a server at my house, which is fine, since I get like 10 hits a day, but I don't really wanna host it at home anymore.

    So what are your experiences with your webhosts. Who is the best right now? What are the prices. As you can see by my site, I don't need much space, and probably don't need much bandwidth either, I just want good ole fashion reliable service.

    So what do you have OT?

    I use KalypsoWeb and they are pretty good. I would give them a 9/10. Pricing is decent (I think we pay $40/year) and packages provide more than enough features as long as you aren't doing something heavy with multimedia.

    if youre just starting out any low end hosting will work fine for you until you get decent traffic.

    I have a dedicated box that has some space on it I can probably sell you for cheap if you're not gonna use a huge amount of bandwidth... PM me if interested.

    I use the planet for all of my dedicated machines. Never had an issue.

    one of my clients uses hostgator (he has a reseller account).. their support is absolute shit.

    I use hytek hosting (Search for Josh here on OT) for a lot of my sites and have been happy for years. You can start off with a small reseller account and just add more space/bandwidth if/when you need it.
