      Found the hosting I think we'll want.

      zipa.com.

      Somethingawful.com use this for their hosting, and they say the bandwidth there is extremely cheap. I checked and by jove, it is. However I'm not so sure about some parts.

      The linux silver plan is $25 USD a month, so for one year it would cost $300 to keep the website up. However the bandwidth is cheap - 1GB of bandwidth for $0.75 if you prepay, or $1.00 if you go over the limit and haven't prepaid. The silver linux plan already comes with 20GB transfer (gold has 40GB, but is $45/month), and 300MB of space. Not sure if that's enough.

      Anyway, go make your own deductions at the page here. I think that you aren't really going to find hosting much cheaper, and as far as their bandwidth prices goes, they're damned excellent.

      Interesting, thanks for the research. Cheap, but I don't think it is enough.

      Gold plan has 40gig bandwidth, we hit that boundary last month
      Gold plan has 300Mb disk space, we are currently using about 125Mb and will probably hit the 300Mb boundary by this time next year.

      Also, don't know if it was my connection, but the demo account they provided seemed a little slow.
      you must be the change you wish to see in the world...

      No but this could be a breakthrough! We could have our avatars back! (but hopefully not the chat box)

      Well, you could lop on another GB for 75 cents each month...I guess it all adds up though.

      Anyway, I'm really struggling to find anything like that cheaper...
