PowWeb is now the cheapest hosting service around

Shoestring Venture: The Startup Bible has an brief but excellent section on purchasing hosting services (I’ve had five people email me and say it was one of the best discussions on how to choose hosting services). We feature there some of the best, ultra-low priced server solutions. Well, one of them, just got a whole lot cheaper this month. And by cheaper, I mean 1/2 the price we quote in the book.

PowWeb is now offering its basic server package at $7.77 per month (half the price we quote in the book) and, for the next couple weeks, is offering 6 free months if you purchase 6 months of service. So now PowWeb is clocking in as the cheapest full-service hosting service at a whopping, break-the-bank price of $3.88 cents per month for one year of service including:

  • Unlimited storage space
  • Unlimited bandwidth
  • Unlimited domains
  • One free domain name registration
  • Plus all the other stuff we list in the book

    Here are some of the ultra-low price comparisons for unlimited plans:

  • IX Web Hosting: $3.95 per month for unlimited storage space, bandwidth, and domain names (this, however, is not a promotion — this is their everyday low price IF you purchase 2 years of hosting)
  • HostMonster: $5.95 per month for unlimited storage space, bandwidth, and domain names
  • BlueHost: $6.95 per month for unlimited storage, etc.
  • HostGator: $7.95 for unlimited . . . well, you know the drill by now.
  • GoDaddy Unlimited (one of the author’s favorites for excellent, unrivaled customer service and tech help): $14.99 per month

    Our book spells out the critical importance of technical help, however, in choosing a hosting service. Money quote:

    While no-one ever chooses a hosting service for its technical help, they almost always fire their hosting service for its technical help.

    GoDaddy, in our opinion, is the gold standard of technical help in the ultra-low price category. In fact, it’s the gold standard in the low-price category, the medium-priced category, and the what’s-wrong-with-you-paying-so-much-for-hosting price category. In the author’s opinion, PowWeb takes a firm second in technical help. (Though it’s mighty suspicious that they changed everyone’s password a few days ago. Mighty suspicious.)
