Can anyone help me locate an inexpensive yet reliable web hosting co.? I was trying to get with VirtuaDesignz, however they have taken weeks to get back to me. I really need to get the site I made posted. Thanks in advance.

BTW What's up GSecur. DGJ helped me sign up. He said it looks like VirtuaDesignz is going under. You didn't confirm this last time we talked.

Actually I think Virtua Designz has disapeared. I personally knew the guy who owned it, and I now I can't find him. No phone number or e-mail responses.

What type of site are you trying to host and what type of server extensions do you need. ie: asp, jsp, cgi?

For now just a regular old html site. You can view it here

DGJ gave me VirtuaDesignz because you had given it to him. He just told me that he has pulled out and gotten a refund from them. I have been waiting and e-mailing for months trying to get this done. My site is done, now I can't post it. Also, will I be able to keep the 2 domain names I registered with VirtuaDesignz?

You should be able to keep the two domain names, but you may have to have them transfered. If you tell me the two domain names I'll do a who is search and tell you the tech contact. When you transfer the names the tech contact will have to be notified to aprove it.

As far as hosting goes a good host but a touch expensive is Interland.

My two domain names are elnoel.com and brushnquill.com I was also going to get theartofdill.com
The interland is a bit too pricey for the people are wanting. Do you have any other recommendations.
Thanks for your help GSecur.

No problemo, thats what I am here for. By the way I just realized who you were ;) .

As fo your domain names you have nothing to worry about, they are actually registered in your name, which is a good thing since you can actually transfer them anytime you want. A good domain registry site which is fast and will transfer your domains for only 8.00 a pop is www.dotster.net

As for hosting how much are you looking to spend?

I appreciate the posts. Rigpa, I can 't read that foreign language, I specialize in Korean. GSecur, I am looking to spend less than $20 bucks a month if I can. Especially now that I have to pay for three sites.

This is the service that I used to use for this site befor I moved it to a dedicated box.

You may be able to host all three of the same account for only a few bucks a month more. But you will have to ask them.

They were reliable, and I never had any problems.
