    Hey guys. A friend of mine is having problems with the server he is using to run 3 of his sites. They are hosted by some company in Texas. Charging him $450 a month. The stats of what he has now are below. Do you know of any cheaper Companies that would host his sites?

    Server specs:

    P4 2.0Ghz
    2x 80gb 7200 rpm IDE HDD
    1gb RAM
    ENSIM control panel

    Connection

    Unmetered 10mbit/sec cogent connection


    2 of the Sites:

    www.AirDisaster.com
    www.JetPhotos.net

    I use hostway.com. Dunno if it will be cheaper or not but it's worth a shot. I've never had issues with them.

    Depends on what kind of hosting your looking for... Is this a dedicated or shared server? Our company uses a Win2k host Crystaltech. http://www.crystaltech.com They are an awesome host and provide excellent support. (Even at 2am on a Sunday when I am trying to get a website published and ftp account does not work) They are also one of the fastest growing hosts in the world. (According to Netcraft)

    Horrible price if it is shared hosting.

    Anyways, for $100-150 a month you could get a T1 line, and though there would obviously be a big startup cost involved, your friend could host them himself (assuming he has the neccessary expertise).

    End up being a LOT cheaper in the end..

    There are a bunch of hosting places out there but as was said before, hosting himself will save him money in the long run, and he will have a fast network connection

    Both really good

    Sorry for not responding quicker. Been away for a while. The sites are back up & running strong now. Thanks for all your help. Cheers.
