When you transfer a domain you are moving it from one host to another. For hosting I love http://www.ipowerweb.com They have great rates and wonderful tech support. Also, if you sign up with them you get a free domain name or free transfer and there is no setup fee.

The majority of hosts will support that IMadmin, that is pretty much a basic standard. Some hosts will offer you telnet and ssh as well so you can login to the server and type commands in a shell and setup crontabs and stuff.

With so many hosts out there it is best to give what you will need for you website:

Space?
Monthly Transfer?
Features?

This will help others give you a good suggestion for a host.

Once you find 3 that you like go to http://www.webhostingtalk.com and post that you would like to know more about the those companies. You will get feedback from other hosts and webmasters.

That seems like a lot of bandwidth for only a 50 MB site :o

I'm just use to seeing people wanting more space.

What is your budget?

Budget= $15.00 U.S. and down preferably
