Webhosting

I am looking for extremely cheap/free Webhosting. I can use Google Apps for the Email portion but need to find a place to host the website. Very low traffic. I did a quick search and it just seems like there is so many company's.

So far I see Abecx and Hostgator as options and expect to pay $100 a year for a "cheap" solution. Thanks for the information.

What exactly do you need a host for, I see that you have a site only. Also, what type of access do you need?

Thanks for the others also. Basically just need a place where I can stick my cheap ass friends website and point the A records over to the web server. I use Google Apps for the email since it is free so I am covered on the email side. Just need a cheap/free solution for a small footprint website.

I'm very happy with HostGator in both up time and great customer service.

yeah i've been using mobileme for that, isn't the best but works for me

the only thing I would be concerned about with HG is that they are hosted at the planet in dallas and houston, not to mention they have a few other locations as well. with the planet merging with softlayer i would be worried about HG's direct support team at the planet. who knows what will happen and how they will transition HG's request to their inside team.
but if your just doing shared hosting I doubt you'll have to worry about it.

Thanks. Still so far the best deal I have found is HostGator Baby Plan $8.00. Unlimited everything including domains. Can anyone beat that?
