Hmm. The service I use for costs $7/month, or $72/year. It's, and I have a basic shared host account. It comes with lots of bandwidth and disk space and is linux based., which hosts a MS based website for me and a friend, offers sites for as low as $4.95/month, and they now claim to support linux, too. I recommend either. -Sylvia -- Sylvia Sotomayor
