[quote=“KenTaiwan98”]I"m having trouble signing up with 1and1.com… I discovered that they only let you if you are an American resident.
Yikes, what can I do? I’m neither American nor a resident there!
I love their package… cheaper than dreamhost (sorry to say) and more flexible, and allows 3 domains, all of which I could use. Dreamhost would be 50% more expensive for me to do the same thing!
Anybody another suggestion?
I host with 34sp.com which is located in the UK, but you certainly don’t need to be British or a resident there. The first great thing about 34sp.com - they are CHEAP. Really cheap, like US$25 per year (not per month). They give you 10 email addresses plus 30 megs of hard disk space for that price. You can buy more space than that if you need it, but for most home users this would be enough. The servers are fast, and the customer service is good (whenever I’ve submitted a tech question, I usually got an answer within the hour). I just renewed my service with them (been using them for two years now).
But it’s not a hand-holding service. If you need a lot of bells and whistles, this isn’t it. I’ve seen some web hosting services that look like an online video game, so don’t expect that. But if you want http, ftp and email, 34sp.com is very good.
