Summary: For sites that are static HTML and have fewer than 1,000 pages, you should not pay more than $10.00 per month for world-class hosting.

Many companies overpay for website hosting. I receive calls from customers that are paying anywhere from $35 – $75 per month for website hosting for very simple websites. Unless you’re running a complex e-commerce solution or a dynamic website with a heavy duty database backend, that is way too much money to spend on hosting.

For sites that are static HTML and have fewer than 1,000 pages, you should not pay more than $10.00 per month for world-class hosting. That’s right, $10.00 per month.

One of the best web hosts on the internet is Crystaltech.com; I use them to host this website. I found Crystaltech through trial, error, and research on web hosts. Their most basic plan costs only $2.95 per month. Crystaltech’s uptime is 99.99% (as of Dec, 2007), which is excellent, and their customer service is responsive.
