I should note that my words come well-seasoned, just in case I have to eat them.

In this case, since I noticed it, I figured I should really eat my words. I had a particularly bad experience with them earlier this year, enough to rescind my endorsement of SpliceHost. I'll be looking elsewhere come renewal time.

If you're looking for something with some more storage, bandwidth, (and unfortunately slightly more cost) try Powweb. For $7.77 a month, you get 20,000 Mb storage, 400 Gb/month bandwidth, PHP, MySQL, webmail, and the whole nine yards. They've hosted the team228.org website for the past two years, and we've never really had any problems with them.

Re: Where do you get your web hosting?

I've used Globat, Hostrocket (who sponsors team 20) and Dreamhost for various projects of mine. I actually checked Hostrocket out because I heard of them on Team 20's banner in 2005, so I guess their sponsorship is working as advertising

I wouldn't recommend Globat, because I haven't had the best customer support experiences with them. Hostrocket has been really good so far, and from what I can tell, Dreamhost is good too.

The problem with web hosting is usually individuals are looking for the best value they can get, and are willing to sacrifice quality for cost. Don't forget: you get what you pay for.

Re: Where do you get your web hosting?

Once we decide on a new team name (the current one was a compromise between wildly different opinions on what sort of name we should have, but very few, if any people really like it), colors, etc., we'll make our site (Hopefully using CSS) However theoretical the site is, we've already got hosting lined up, the hosting and domain name will be provided by the University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill. I trust that they'll be pretty reliable. So, for team purposes, try your local universities, they probably have space and bandwidth to spare. (Especially big ones) It also probably won't be too hard to convince them to provide it, many provide hosting for their students, and for most teams, the amount they give students is likely enough.

I've got to disagree with you on this one. If teams can afford the cost of FRC, they should be able to afford $50 per year for web hosting. I doubt most universities will be able to provide you with invaluable interfaces such as CPanel and phpMyAdmin and innumerable other features that come with a good paid host.

Re: Where do you get your web hosting?

I second 1and1.com. It's only 2.24 per month right now. Our team uses it, and it's great. The control panel is very user friendly, and we've never had problems with it.
