Question I need to find decent web-host

Bell's hosting is GARBAGE. We got it like 4 years ago for the compnay site, but that was back when the whole site was only 2 meg. Now its larger, and we have an online catalogue.

I think the bandwidth theyre giving us now is only like 200 MB a month. So every time someone downloads our 6mb PDF catalogue...well, as you can see, it aint enough! We owe them around $650 for the last 6 months for going over our limits! EEK!!

Anyone know of any good hosts in Canada? I've found some in the states, but theres WAY too many of them! I cant choose!

Anyone have experience with any? Canada? US? I dunno..I just need a basic host...the site is like 30mb total.....nothing special on it, but we need more bandwidth.

the site is www.electronmetal.ca in case you need to see it.

Any reccomendations? HELP!

The Ottawa subaru club is with Magma (http://www1.magma.ca/corporate/hosting/virtual.html)

How much transfer per month are you looking at? Do you have any special requirements.... the site looks pretty straight forward (HTML and PDF files)...... is there any embedded programming?

hrm...it looks OK for the price. the $85 includes a web statistics report, which we need.....but only ONE e-mail address? Come on! Thats a little pathetic....most places offer unlimited! Unless I read wrong....

Default I can refer you

I can refer you to the guy that provides my domain.

You would have to contact him for exact pricing,
but I believe $55 cdn to register the .com then ~$40 per month after that..


www.calinuxsystems.com

or you could just pm me and I can get MY pricing referral on that.

Check out www.tcw.net. Very good quality hosting at good prices. Many features and they are not renting boxes at another ISP like 95% of all web hosts.

Did I mention the owner is a Subaru WRX lover (me)?

If you check out the site and see a combination of feature (between plans) that you like, it can be setup that way.

Talking

Hey, thanks alot, gang! these all look pretty good. Now, to choose....

its hard to make a choice! they all offer the same thing, but some seem to be WAY cheaper than the competition. why? is it because theyre more unreliable or something? Is it always safest to go with the larger companies?
