Re: Need a server

depends what you're looking for. What kind of serverside support you require, how much you are willing to pay, wether you want your own domain (such as www.1bad3.com), etc. My friend uses hostpapa.com, which gives him webspace, a domain name, and a maximum on bandwidth. He pays about $30 a month. Theres obviously freewebsite providers out there that may suit your purpose. If you require forums, you could possible get a free service host, and use something like freewebs.com for your main site. Up to you really.

www.1and1.com I've never had any issues with them, and for the prices, they are hard to beat.

+1000... i have about 20 domains running on my 1and1 account, and have countless clients using them... everyone loves it. Best $10 shared linux hosting plans around.

Re: Need a server

I agree with the others, 1and1 is pretty good. I have a dedicated Linux server hosted by them and their service has been great. I'm not too sure how good their shared hosting support is though since I've never had a shared plan or even called them before.

Re: Need a server

I actually just talked with them today regarding some tricky mod_rewrite rules i'm setting up. Their support is excellent even for shared hosting.

Re: Need a server

I think they are the ones who deleted our previous site and kept the money, but I will check on it. Thanks for the suggestion though.

Re: Need a server

Wow seriously? That's pretty messed up...was it an accident or is the site controversial in some way?

Re: Need a server

My suggestion: anybody EXCEPT whoever is hosting Mazda3Forums!
