Linux Web Hosting - $5.00 / Month

This is a very overlooked provider that actually offers some of the most reliable server performance of any hosting provider for this price. also has a very responsive support department, and they will even email their customer base ahead of time whenever maintenance will occur or when a problem does exist, along with the steps they are taking to fix it. Although support is Email / Web only, their staff is top-notch and they also run a helpful community forum for all manner of technical issues. is very well-liked by its customer base and is a great host for any personal website or small business that doesn't require massive amounts of bandwidth.

5DollarHosting is a great example of an account that has all the basics you'd need on a Linux hosting account, without sacrificing reliability or customer support. Where many shared hosts are concerned with offering more space and more bandwidth and unlimited emails, how many people truly need or use more than 25 MB of disk space, 5 GB of bandwidth, or 99 email accounts?


As with almost every other host in the $5.00/mo range, their support is limited to web-based only, although it has proven to be one of the better support departments among cheap hosting providers. Going over your bandwidth limit will cost $10/GB for extra bandwidth, so it is not a wise choice for any type of website that will generate large amounts of traffic. They do have bigger accounts with up to 10 GB of data transfer per month, but then the price rises above being called "low cost".

The $19.00 setup fee makes the first year with them actually come out to around $6.60/month, and though they truly are a great host, they just don't have any features that beat out ICDSoft for the same price.
