The best company I’ve used for hosting, which I use for my personal blog, and Delicious Design Studio is Tiger Technologies.
Their accounts come with a bunch of things like:
your own free domain name, such as www.example.com
5 GB disk space
250 GB bandwidth
50 POP e-mail accounts and 200 e-mail forwarding aliases
No setup fees
Webmail access to your e-mail
E-mail screening to block viruses and minimize spam
Free WHOIS privacy protection (other companies charge $8.99/year)
Web site statistics
PHP 4, PHP 5, Ruby on Rails, Perl, and cgi-bin support, with FormMail and Counter CGI programs pre-installed
5 MySQL databases
SSH and telnet shell access
Mailman server software makes it easy to run mailing lists
Basically, tons of stuff you will probably never touch but it’s sure nice to know you have. Haha. They are $6.95 a month if you pay yearly, or $7.95 a month if you pay monthly. Out of all the hosting providers that I’ve worked with, and worked on.. I’ve realized that Tiger Technologies is probably the best out there, especially in regards to customer service which is really important in my book.
