    A good, reliable web host?

    Hello guys, I was hoping you could help me out with finding a good host for my portfolio. I'm looking to pay annually, gain FTP access as well as an e-mail service. And most importantly it must be fairly cheap, I don't have much money.

    Any help would be great!

    Thanks,
    Paul.

    EDIT* I've posted with my girlfriend's username, this is actually pau1winslow.

    only 4 bucks a month for 10GB of space and 300GB of bandwidth AND you get a free domain name

    Godaddy and IX webhosting are pretty reliable.

    I remember my dad saying Godaddy is no good, but he didn't explain why. I'll have to ask him.

    Anyway, I think there's a way to get one for a pretty good price without an annual fee. Looks like I'm gonna have to talk with my dad.

    I'm using go daddy right now...

    Advantages:

    Easy to use control panel
    readily accessable helpline
    only 3 dollars per month for 10 gigs (i think.. i have to check)
    Short term contract, quit anytime.

    Disadvantages:

    Mostly unaccessible from China
    Basic service includes hosting only...no traffic tracking, email etc...
