What's the best low cost web hosting service?

You'll probably get more responses to this question over on the "Webmaster's Corner" board here at TMF. You can even search the archives over there and find plenty of prior discussions.

You will likely get a variety of responses because different people like different hosting services.

I have used 5 different hosting services and currently have somewhere between 15-20 sites published.

Without hesitation, I recommend www.crystaltech.com

Just as important as low cost is good, prompt, technical support service. If you have a problem at 8PM on Friday of a 3-day holiday weekend, you want a prompt and useful response to your concerns. www.crystaltech.com has never let me down. After using the other services, I'm amazed sometimes how fast they are to respond to email support questions.

I originally learned about www.crystaltech.com through a post someone else put up on the Webmaster's Corner board, so I'm happy to pass the information on to you.



Eventually there will be online ordering of products, but first the plan is to just establish a presence.

Save yourself a lot of time & frustration - get your online ordering plans in place before you establish a presence. It will save you from doing things twice.

Depending on what you're selling, you might even want to start off with using PayPal for payment processing. They have some great options that are simple to implement.

Come on over to the Webmaster's Corner board and provide a brief explanation of what you'll be selling and you should get plenty of assistance.
