Website Hosting

Thu Oct 19, 2006 1:00 am

Over the last few months me and a few friends have been working on a website for bus enthusiasts. I would like to host it on the Internet and wondered which is the best and cheapest way of hosting a website which has 2 MYSQL databases. Being able to pay with pay pal would help, as well as a relatively large storage space and download allowance (there is a photo gallery on the website). Thanks for your help and advice in advance,
Matt

I use Dreamhost for all my lower end webhosting requirements - very cheap, reliable and they have a lot of fun as well (the monthly news letter always has me chuckling).

Unlimited mysql databases is a feature of theirs, with a lot of storage (over 2GB last time I looked) and it increases all the time, and something like 1TB transfer allowance.

Someone queried how they could afford to offer the above, and they have a blog somewhere where they explain it - essentially 99% of their users dont actually use anything near what they offer.

If you want a discount code, let me know (yes, I get something out of it but not at your expense).

LOL from the front page, they seem a fun company. I need to wait until the weekend to get the required files but would like to sign up with the company after that. Is it OK to PM you next week when I have got the files? Thanks for your help,
Matt
