im after a decent host preferably very cheap about £10-£20 a year with php and cgi compatable. and enough bandwidth to support a large site and forums. I also need a domain registration, probably co.uk.

I did find shieldhost.com, someone mentioned it on these forums, what do others think of it

Hi lifeanatomy,

Anytime you're in that price range, you're taking a bit of a risk. However, their pricing:resource model isnt completely out of line - so, my initial thoughts would be - worth the risk for the amount it will cost. However, I dont really have any personal experience with them

Well - you do get what you pay for. It all depends on what your website is worth to you.

Looks like you are looking to host a forum. A forum has all sorts of advertising revenue potential - at least to help fund your hosting bill. Problem is, you will really need some traffic before you could generate the advertising $'s. One thing you may try is to find a host that will sponsor your forum (meaning give you a discounted hosting rate in exchange for ads. etc..)

Hope this helps...

Actually - go over to hosthideout.com in the request forum and post a request for sponsored hosting in return for advertising. You will probably get some offers -

no no - please do not do that - it was just a recommendation - I visit there a little over the years - and I know they accept these sorts of requests - that is all :)

Also - someone from this forum may also make you this sort of offer. We do not really do things like this, but, Im sure if someone is interested, they will PM you.

It all really depends on how much bandwidth and space the website takes up at the end of the day.
