    2 things caught my eye

    "Unlimited traffic" Sorry but no host actually gives this...PERIOD, what hosts mean when they say this is "we will tell you when you are transferring to much data" A reliable program will tell you upfront and not play games like this.

    no SSH? I could not run AHFB on this program.

    Try Tera-Byte, or Zaire, one of our members is a reseller for a very reputable host.

    I'm willing to pass a deal onto you, if you would like....

    Also,

    without SSH, i don't know how alot of advanced sites could possibly run, becuase I know, that ssh is a vital thing to myself

    SSH is just a secure telnet basiclly...

    Telnet is like shell client, basiclly, you connect to a remote computer, and use the command line to do various tasks...

    Putty, is a great free windows telnet/ssh client, that I recommend

    they offer Unlimited Bandwidth
    Unlimited Bandwidth=SCAM as bandwidth costs host $1/2 a gig

    Also wasn't that the same host that e-mailed unlimband.com saying to take unlimband.com because it says unlimited bandwidth isn't real

    Been doing some research

    Due to the fact that this forum has become popular with spammers from start up hosts (and because zaires appears to not be up yet) I have done some research to find a quality host that even our younger users with a limited budget could afford.

    I came across 100megswebhosting.com (I think a few of our members already use them). I liked what I saw on the support forums, usually the unhappy folks are the most vocal, in this case I found quite a bunch of people that seem pretty pleased with Rueben (the owner?)

    They have a $5.00 plan which gives 10 MB of disk space, 2 GB of bandwidth. This is just about exactly what I use for both space and bandwidth with 1000 folks a day, of course I would have to move to the 100 MB of disk space, 5 GB of bandwidth to have room for growth, but that is only 10 bucks

    Looks like they have a pretty good affiliate program too

    I would love to hear some feedback from some of you

    I've lurked around their forum at times and I'd have to agree with you, Dave. Also, I know personally some of the people who work with Reuben and they are top-notch people.
