    50 GB with 999 GB bandwidth for less than Rs. 3000 per year!! So cost per MB per year is less than 6 paise!! Looks fantastic! But don't you think its too cheap? It is too good to be true!! :)) Decent dedicated servers with 100 GB space costs around US $ 250 a month!

    In this case, I will assume that they are hiding a few things.

    Primarily, they are over-selling! They know you are not going to use so much space. So they sell the same space again and again. ;) Of course, over-selling is now an accepted industry norm and almost all providers do it.

    Personally, I will not go with them. You get what you pay for. They may be selling a scooter and you may only need a bicycle. So may just be suitable to you. Try some pre-sales questions and see what answers you get.

    This webhost is free and supports php+mysql. 5GB Space. I recd. an email from them saying No ADS! So i will recommend u. FTP also. You can have either a domain name or subdomain @ 1111mb.com like someone.1111mb.com lnk:http://1111mb.com

    I have two more free hosts but they are banner based. http://www.9999mb.com and http://www.fr33host.net Same Features as 1111mb except for space. Both of these provide 10GB!!
    Note: All the above listings are not Indian!!
    :shock: :D ;) :p

    Hehe! Just a small tip on choosing your host -
    If you are offered 2TB (just example) space for $10 then, before buying it think - will ya a buy a car for $100?? Must be some catch for unrealistic offers ain't it?

    Well if you seem scared of overselling companies like Dreamhost, Bluehost and Hostmonster...try www.asmallorange.com - very reliable and great hosting!

    BTW Hostmonster and Bluehost are one and the same thing.....Hostmonster is another company set up by Bluehost!

    I checked out asmallorange.com and I am thinking of the small plan which gives 400mb space and 10 gigs of bandwidth for 5$ per month.
    Can anyone tell me howmuch traffic can I recieve with 10 GB bandwidth?

    10 GB is more than you would ever consume! That's a LOT of bandwidth!

    Kalpik is right. Thats a lot of bandwidth for a small site and don't worry about it at all.

    I am hosting a image oriented site which has about 500 visitors a day. It consumes about half of that in a month.

    awardspace looks good, except for a few problems in free accounts.
    1. SMTP is not available. That means you can't use your domain for sending mails :(
    2. File size limit 500 kb
    3. No email forwaders
    4. No password protected directories. This may not matter much ;)
