Since December 2005 I have been on paid hosting by 1and1.com. I have
found them to be very reliable and feature filled. I highly recommend
them and they have many plans. I chose the "Home" plan and have much
more bandwidth quota and space quota than I really need. I looked into
others hosts, but found the best value here. I am on one of the Linux
hosted plans, so the uptime I have actually seen is around 99.99%. For
$4.99 a month, I get 120 GB of disk space, two domains, and 1.2
of monthly bandwidth, of which I maybe use 5 GB. I also love having
1,200 email accounts available for my domain, under POP3, Webmail, and
the best of all: IMAP. The price is very
reasonable while the bandwidth and disk space allowances have
grown tremendously. My neighbor also has used 1and1.com for longer than
I had the start of my domain in about an hour's time after
registering. They do offer private domain registration, to keep your
phone number and email address private.
I use no cookies or spyware on any of my pages here and there are no pop ups. The ad below is the only one my domain.
