Cheap web hosting

Does cheap web hosting really exist?

Or here’s a better question: Does cheap, QUALITY web hosting really exist?

The answer used to be No.

I had a programmer friend who used to answer any kind of a cost question with this question:

“Good, fast, cheap. Pick two.”

What does it mean?

It means you can’t have it good and fast, unless it’s not cheap.  You can’t have it good and cheap unless you don’t need it fast. And you can’t have it fast and cheap and expect it to be good.

Well, Hostgator breaks all of those rules.

Hostgator provides high quality web hosting at extremely reasonable rates. You can actually host a site there, using their “Hatchling” plan, for as little as $4.95 a month.

Their most popular hosting plan, what they call their “Baby” plan, is actually pretty darn high powered.

For as little as $9.95/month, you get unlimited bandwidth, unlimited diskspace, and an unlimited number of websites.

Of course, they’ve got higher powered plans for mission critical and special applications, too.

They even have dedicated servers and Windows server hosting.

So we’ve covered “Good” and “Cheap”. What about Fast? Well, if you sign up now, your site will be up and running within about 10 minutes.

Fast enough?

Good, Fast and Cheap. You get all three.

If you’re going to host a website, I recommend Hostgator.

  1. Mark, I couldn’t agree more. I ranked them #2 in best, cheap web hosts for the following reasons. My experience with HostGator confirms that they have good customer service and reliability, cheap hosting plans that anyone can afford, and their simplified tools make it possible for almost anyone to get a website up quickly. Cheers.
