Commercial Web Hosts

Listed on this page are cheap web hosts (commercial web hosts, of course) and brief reviews of the hosts. Note: only where I have information pertaining to the host will there be a review. What constitutes a "budget web host" for the purpose of this page? Essentially I just use common sense (my definition of it!), looking at the price of the package and its features. Although I mostly list packages that cost around $10 a month, there are exceptions. For example, a package that costs more but providing extra or perhaps specialized features might also make it here. Note though that most of these web hosts have more than one package available. To keep each description from being too long, I usually only list their cheapest package on this page (which may not necessarily be their best package). You can click the link to find out more about the other packages if that host interests you.

I recommend that you read the article How to Choose a Web Host before committing yourself to any web host.

If your site is resource intensive, that is requiring a lot of memory or CPU time, you may be interested in the Virtual Private Servers (VPS) Web Hosting and the Web Hosting: Dedicated Servers pages instead. Those plans allocate more resources to your website, allowing you to do things you would not normally be permitted in a shared web hosting environment. You can read more about this in the article The Fine Print in Web Hosting: Resource Usage Limits.

Warning: take all claims of "unlimited" disk space and bandwidth in the web host's packages with a pinch of salt. If you're not sure why, read the article The Myth of "Unlimited" in Web Hosting and investigate the host's Terms of Service carefully. In addition, the prices and features listed here were correct at the time I checked it. However, the web hosting industry is very competitive, and thus the hosts tend to change their prices and package features very frequently (with emphasis on the "very"), so much so that the current prices and package details will probably be different by the time you read this. Your best bet is to check the host's site for the authoritative information.

Unless otherwise stated, I try to list prices in US dollars (to standardize things a bit, where I can), although some hosts may show you the prices in your local currency when you go to their site.
