    I want to buy a domain name and host about 100 MB of data over a period of a couple of years, what kind of price should I expect and who should I look at?

    I'm trying to work out how what their 'period' is for the sale. They don't state whether it is monthly or yearly...

    certainly not, I fork out to get one of my own machines hosted in a colocation centre. If all I wanted was a reasonabley priced webhost it would definatley be considered though

    Cheap? Or do you go for quality? Every time I look at moving from dedicated server rental in the US to colo in the UK I go pale at the price.

    I went for poundhost. They are very cheap indeed but can be worth it because they accept towers.

    The cool thing about towers.. cheap to buy, replace, fix and source parts for. And you can put a stackload of disks in a tower. win win win IMO.

    I've put a super-sized (much larger than normal full-height) tower in, and it is 300gb/transfer per month for 46 quid including VAT monthly..

    I'll bear them in mind if I ever need a faster server then, currently I pay between £15 and £20 (depending on the exchange rate) a month with 200gb transfer and the box isn't overloaded yet

    ServerPronto. They're cheap and I've had no significant downtime in a year and a half (none in the last year) so it's fine for me.

    229 is obviously a referal code.
