Start Logic

Start Logic offers a nice range of services at very low prices. They are located in Phoenix Arizona, which they say gives them protection from extreme environments. Now, if you've been in Phoenix in the summer (as I have) that should give make you go "huh", because their typical summer weather is essentially extreme. There's no other way to describe 120 degrees in the shade than "extreme" (or, as they say, at least it's a dry heat).


StartLogic - Affordable Webhosting


PowWeb provides shared hosting, and has done so since 1999. Their cost is very reasonable as are the features they offer. For shared hosting they offer the typical features, and there are two things which stand out.

The first is their claim of zero downtime. In describing their technology, they use redundant servers and equipment at every part of their network infrastructure. In the past I've been with hosting providers where a single piece of equipment would go down, and take dozens of websites offline. Having the redundancy to allow them to claim zero downtime is a good thing.

ix Webhosting

IX Web Hosting been providing first-class web hosting services since 1999. Unlike a lot of web hosting providers, they run their own data center. By running their own data center, you're more likely to receive good service, and there are fewer places to assign blame when things go wrong.

They offer shared hosting plans at really low prices on either Windows or Linux servers. One would choose Windows if you needed to host ASP pages (ASP is a web templating technology from Microsoft that's similar to PHP).

iPower and iPowerWeb

iPowerWeb offers both shared hosting and dedicated hosting packages. They operate out of four data centers that are each well connected to the Internet, and they claim a very large customer base.

The packages are very low cost, and also are lean on features. That is, the packages are the basic web hosting arrangement with no extra features, no fluff.

One nice feature is an extensive set of articles and tutorials that should help you get started with building web sites.
