Budget Web Hosting for 1st timers USD$4.99 one time fee

I was browsing around for an affordable web host for a personal website and stumbled upon KVC Hosting and thought it might be useful for those considering their initial web presence ( non-commercial typically ).

One Time fee is USD$4.99 and yours free for life. Optional .com domain purchasing for one year at USD$8.99

URL: http://www.kvcwebsitehosting.com/free-hosting.html

7 features offered for free under the K Hosting Plan are:

PHP
300 MB storage
2GB Data transfer
2 email accounts
cPanel 11
1 FTP account
No Banner Ads
24x7 support
FrontPage extensions

Fine print:

** Our Free Web Hosting is different from other free hosting sites. We do not place banner ads or other distractingly big advertisements that might annoy your users. However, we place footer texts that mention our company name and the text size will not be big either. It will only be visible to users who scroll all the way down. Our free website hosting requires a one-time payment to set up your free web hosting. The package includes add-on features such as 3000+free website templates, 70+SEO tools, and rvsite builder. We have more than 10,000 satisfied clients who use our free web hosting services. They have often remarked with amazement about our server speed. We never oversell our free web hosting plan and pride ourselves in maintaining fast and efficient services.

FWIW, I got a Virtual Private Server through balticservers.com
Enough to run a web site and database , with 20GB of storage and a (tested) 100Mb link. Unlimited traffic volume... You get full root access etc....


Processor: 0,5 CORE X3470 @ 2.93GHz (More...)
RAM memory: 512MB
Disk space: 20GB
Disks: SAS 15000RPM, RAID
Bandwidth: 100Mbps
Price: 6.00 Eur/month (12 months minimum)

You can run your own email/web/ftp/torrent server easily.

Now if only I had some test data to write vBulletin reports and stats

One thing to check with such ISP/VSPs before you order a domain through them is that you will own and control the domain, not them.

Some places (I'm not saying this is one, gäl) will buy it "on your behalf" and sting you badly for huge fees for renewals or transferring domain to elsewhere, the details being hidden somewhere in the small print.

A micro instance at amazon web services is free for the first year (then pay by usage). Micro instance is Linux vm.

MS are doing 750 hours free for a micro windows vm.

He is probably bitter, perhaps justifiably so, and is bad mouthing KVC all over the Net, wherever he found them mentioned in Google.

TBH, have felt like that myself. I doubt he will ever repost here, and to some extent, I believe him and will avoid this company...

WWW used to stand for Wild Wild West.

Cowboys and Indians...

Opening up this old thread.


Anyone got experience with wix.com? I made a free website with them but to get my own domain I need to pay.It's expensive but very easy to build and manage the page.


Any other opinions are also welcome.


Thanks

No experience, but I can't help wondering how many locals from the Swiss-German regions would go near it.

Re: Budget Web Hosting for 1st timers USD$4.99 one time fee

I must admit I do have a bit of a vested interest here as I'm a web designer by trade, but if the website you are setting up is e.g. likely to form an important part of a business plan (which I guess it might be having seen some of your other posts) then I wouldn't touch any of the free offerings with a bargepole. They are very inflexible which will become a problem as your business grows and it's difficult to put together a site that looks professional and attractive to your customers.

Because (in German) Wixer / Wichser has a less-than-positive connotation.

Re: Budget Web Hosting for 1st timers USD$4.99 one time fee

Good afternoon all. I can see you guys know your stuff and decided to ask this here.

I use 1and1 since 2006 here in the UK.
I use their templates for my 2 websites. Easy SEO setup (after reading about it for few days) Google ranking is good and I no longer use addwords. Getting enough free enquiries now days.

I cannot find 1and1 in Switzerland, I'm I wrong?

Do you recommend that I just pay for my package with 1and1 here in the UK and have the website in Switzerland? Or do you think is better if I get a contract with a Swiss company?

Can you please recommend me similar company like 1and1 based in Switzerland where I can use their own web templates and create the website on my own.

Thank you all in advance.
