The September 2005 Cheap Web Hosting Report
By Randall Stukey
Below are the top five general purpose cheap web hosts selected
for September 2005. All of the following hosting plans include a
web control panel, a cgi-bin directory, php, perl, and at least 1
mysql database. Many offer a number of additional features. Our
ratings are re-evaluated monthly, with a major re-evaluation of
customer ratings every three months.

About the CWHR Rating: This number (from a low of 1 to a high of
10) is a weighted average of customer ratings of the web host
(80%) and the staff evaluation of the web host (20%). Customer
ratings are themselves weighted by the length of time the person
has been using their web host. Customers who have hosted with a
company for years count more than a customer who has hasted there
for a couple of months. As our rating is mainly determined by
customers of web hosts, our rating is less likely to be gamed by
staff evaluators playing favorites or web hosts giving our staff
special treatment. The CWHR Ranking determines the sites we list
each month and the order in which we list them. A CHWR Rating of
"NA" means not enough customers rated this host for a meaningful
result. This rating is only found in the special needs hosting

Comments: Dreamhost has long been -- and still is -- listed as
the best affordable web host for unusual content (as they will
host just about anything legal) in the Special Needs Hosting
section of this report. Improvements in their plans in the last
year have made them very competitive in terms of bandwidth, web
space, and features offered for the price, and they are extremely
well-rated by their customers.

New and improved features are announced in the Dreamhost
newsletter almost every month, for example, the June 2005
newsletter announced the availability of PHP5 and MySQL 4.1 and
the July 2005 announced the availability of Ruby on Rails,
FastCGI, Miva 5, the Zend Optimizer and bandwidth/disk space
amounts that grow slightly every week you are with Dreamhost (by
1 GB and 20 MB disk space for the account listed here).

quality web hosting with few content restrictions, truly
excellent tech support, and very friendly people, check out

Setip: 3m: $30.00 1y: Free

php4/cgi/1 mysql database, Frontpage available, host 1 domain
and 15 sub-domains, Fantastico script library. JSP and ASP
available for additional charge. Public customer forum.

Comments: Lunarpages has been in the low cost web hosting
business since 2000 when Add2Net expanded into shared hosting.
While their customer rating fluctuates more than most hosting
companies we list, it is alway high and long time customers
seem very loyal. Their support for controversial content is
second only to Dreamhost among low-priced web hosts.
Lunarpages offers a 30-day money back guarantee, see their
terms of service for details.

#3 --

Price: 6m: $9.95 1y: $9.95
Setup: 6m: $30 1y: free
Bandwidth: 100 GB
Disk Space: 8000 MB
Mailboxes: 400
CWHR Rating: 9.0

Special Features: php/cgi/5 mysql databases, Frontpage
available, host 1 domain and 5 sub-domains.

Comments: InMotion Hosting is an employee owned and operated
company founded in 2001. Their employees average over 4 years of
hosting experience while their senior staff average over 10
years of hosting experience. This shows it their higher than
normal customer rating. The Power plan listed here is actually
InMotion's intermediate plan. (InMotion offer an ever lower
priced plan, Launch, but it lacks some features most people
consider critical, such as access to your web sites log files
for traffic analysis.) The Power plan offers evey features most
web sites need and comes with InMotion's reputation for
reliability and toll-free telephone support. InMotion offers a
money back guarantee, although its terms are somewhat unclear
-- if these terms were not so vague, InMotion's CWHR Ranking
would be slightly higher.

Honorable Mention

The following web hosts also rated quite well in customer
ratings and might also be worthy of consideration:
* BlueHost (CWHR Rating: 7.4)
* PowWeb (CWHR Rating: 7.1)
* APlus (offers both Unix and Windows hosting; CWHR Rating: 6.5)
* iPowerWeb (CWHR Rating: 5.8)
* StartLogic (CWHR Rating: 5.6)

Special Needs Cheap Web Hosting

Fewer Content Restrictions

Price: 1m: $9.95 1y: $9.95 2y: $7.95
Setup: 1m: $49.95 1y: Free 2y: Free
Bandwidth: 120 GB
Disk Space: 2400 MB
Mailboxes: 600
CWHR Rating: 9.6

Comments: In an effort to avoid arguments and complaints, most
web hosting companies are fairly restrictive on questionable
content -- to the point that some will terminate a site for
displaying a picture of a classical (but bare breasted) statue
from ancient Greece. Dreamhost not only has an excellent,
cheap web hosting package but is far more liberal than most web
hosts on acceptable site content. Basically, if your content is
legal in the US, Dreamhost will probably have no problems
hosting it.

Windows Hosting

Easy CGI
Price: 1m: $9.95 1y: $7.96
Setup: 1m: Free 1y: Free
Bandwidth: 50 GB
Disk Space: 3000 MB
Mailboxes: 50
CWHR Rating: NR

Comments: Easy CGI provides Windows 2000 servers instead of the
standard Unix servers. Their accounts come with ASP and one
Access Database. They are one of the most affordable and most
popular Windows hosting providers. Customer service reports are
spotty, however. Most people report excellent service but
minority report major problems

Virtual Dedicated Server Hosting (Root Access)

Price: 1y: $9.95
Setup: Free
Bandwidth: 5 GB
Disk Space: 500 MB
Mailboxes: 75
CWHR Rating: NR

Comments: Jumpline uses special technology to provide each
account with its own virtual server. You have your own Apache
web server, your own email servers, your own database server,
etc. and you have root access to the virtual machine running
them. These types of accounts can be more stable and provide
better control, but are best used by Unix experts who
understand the ins and outs of running servers.

Dedicated Server Hosting

Price: 1m: $29.95
Setup: $149.00
Bandwidth: 200 GB
Disk Space: 40 GB
Mailboxes: unlimited
CWHR Rating: NR

Comments: A dedicated server gives your site its own physical
computer as a server. The upside is that you have full root
access so you can install whatever software you want on it and
have very few restrictions on scripts (even if they hog CPU
time). The downside is that you have to maintain the system
yourself. ServerPronto has some of the most affordable dedicated
server prices we have seen (and they often have sales that cut
the price of the setup fee), although there are many options that
can increase the monthly price or the setup fee. Windows and
Windows 2003 dedicated servers are also available at higher
