Hi everyone,

Is $65 enough for a domain and a hosting for using over months or years?

Any advice

Thanks

That's pretty good when you consider its around $5 per month... I assume its shared hosting account... That's about the average cost for medium level shared hosting... In addition I would check out how many domains you can add to your hosting account (incl. use of mysql database)....

You could get pretty close to that. Domain registration is usually around $10/year. Sometimes you will see specials with a discounted or even free if you signup for hosting.

Web hosting for around $5/month is not too hard to find. You can find $1/mo hosting, but I would not suggest this. Everyone likes getting stuff for cheap, but remember, hosting companies have to make money too. If they are only charging you $1 mo, that will hardly pay for the server space you are using. Now ask yourself, if they are not making any real profit, can they afford to provide quality services and support? :blink:

paying $65 for a month? move on dude, because you are paying probably the most as far as shared hosting is concerned.

And domain name comes free with the plan you will choose, just correct your information and do some research.

thanks

Key words "lowest" and "iPage". $65 per year is decent price. I would definitely take Prokas advice.

It is very well enough. You can get a domain [Around $10-15/Year] & hosting [Around $25-$45/Year] for the year with the budget you're targeting.

I can some what agree, we have a two dollar service and have had 100% customer satisfaction from all of our services including the 2$ one.
We simply offer reseller/VPS to make up for the 2$ service, plus i would say 90% of people who use the 2$ service barely need any support and if they do it is nothing difficult which can be replied to in minutes.

our respond time is 2 - 15min for tickets and 2min for online chat on average.
so yes some companies whom only offer cheap services make very little profit and are not able to provide support however if they have other services, they can easily provide good high quality support.

I advice you pay via paypal. if them do scam you can request refund :2guns:
It is difficult to get your money back to your Paypal account if you sell digital products like web services, web hosting, codes.., Also you need any proofs to send to papal staff when you open a dispute for reporting a scammer.

Scamming for that amount is only done by kinds who cant even setup a website so I wouldnt worry about that too much. however if you do want to be 110% safe, get a receipt and talk to support before purchase.

Are you mentioning to requesting an Paypal invoice from sellers before purchasing stuffs from them? so that is safe?

$65 is enough for a domain that hosts at Godaddy, Name or Namecheap with $10/ month

The rest $55, you can buy a shared hosting for 5 months with pricing ~$10 /mo.

If you go for a VPS, then is not just enough for 2 months or 1 month for a decent dedicated server.

A domain will cost you between 5.00 and around 30.00 depending on which TLD you want.
The Hosting plan should cost between 3.00 - 10.00 a month.
