    I had a good experience with Dotster, though they don't give you any free nameservers.

    Dotster's hosting package seems low. 9 bucks a month for 15 mb of space?

    I have my site hosted by http://sharpwebinnovations.com/ they give me 24 hour support via messenger plus have daytime phone support etc.

    Really good Co. IMHO

    If you go with SWI please use lance-tek.com as your referrer

    The best place to buy a domain is www.godaddy.com

    they offer 24/7 phone support and domain forwarding, along with other features that the other folks charge for.

    I STRONGLY recommend www.hostpc.com

    They have a $5 a month plan, but often run a special for 350megs and 8gig bandwidth for $25 a year! Tons of features too.

    I've been using them for four months now, without any problems. Simply amazing.

    dunno if you really saw it in the thread link but 1 and 1 is about the biggest online host I hear and they have 3 years free as a promo right now ... here is the link http://order.1and1.com/xml/static/Ho...b?__frame=_top

    I think it will cost a few bux still for your domain registration but aside from that it is almost impossible to beat ...
