      Host unlimited sites on every plan!![/b]
      its a reseller server, and at those prices, the servers are more than likely going to be way oversold and overcrowded from the resellers just packing as many people into their account as they can (and more than likely more than they can fit due to the assumption most people won't need as much as they buy).
      Insanity is the new avant-garde.

      Yeah, one must be careful looking for hosts. ipowerweb is a pretty good damned deal; but this site has just grown exponetially.

      If ya have a look on that site, you'll find the price DV is looking for is....

      $49 - 99

      That's about 100gb bandwidth. You'll say "WTF" but when you think, eventually the site will need it.

      Yeah there's a lot of deals for hosting out there. I know a lot that look even better then the one you see. You have to make sure they don't rip you or something.

      why have avatars?

      ...
      i'm new round here but i can't understand why people would want avatars anyway. they just mess up the page for me.

      i'd rather read clean text to see what people have got to say without seeing the same old pic over & over again.

      The pictures help identify people because it is easier to remeber... let's say a picture of a cow for someone than having to read their name over and over again (unless they change avatars all the time than that defeats the purpoes).

      Exactly! I recognize people with the avatars because its easier. simple as that. Now im going to have to rely on signatures now or just read their name. anyway avatars are cool. especially mine .

      mmm. i'm not convinced. i have no prob reading a name. but the avatars are better than the pics in sigs that really use up space.

      signatures are not hosted on this site.
      (except for the text)

      And I happen to like my signature and avatar.

      I suggest ix webhosting. This is what pubbles uses, and it offers PLENTY of space. It's also has a good price. It supports php and mysql (or whatever its called), and I know its a good hoster, because pubbles uses it.

      Go to http://www.ixwebhosting.com/?mqf=202 to check it out, I think that it is a very reliable hosting pervider.
      "The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed."
      - Albert Einstein
      "We're so engaged in doing things to achieve purposes of outer value that we forget the inner value, the rapture that is associated with being alive, is what it is all about."
      -Joseph Campbell
      "He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt. He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice. This disgrace to civilisation should be done away with at once. Heroism at command, senseless brutality, deplorable love-of-country stance, how violently I hate all this, how despicable and ignoble war is; I would rather be torn to shreds than be part of so base an action! It is my conviction that killing under the cloak of war is nothing but an act of murder."
      -Albert Einstein
