Like I said, I don't even need 300MB or 100MB, just a fraction of that, my gripe is the cost of that measly add on. Ten dollars extra for a measly 300MB SQL Server 2005 space, come on that is hard to justify; I'd be happier with a 20MB add-on for an extra
dollar a month. The other issue is with finding shared hosts with the combination (key word) of installed components required to run sites. For example how many hosts out there offer
- Windows Server 2008 (or IIS 6.0 with isapi rewrite)
- SQL Server 2005
- Scheduled tasks
- Database management system to restore and backup databases
- stats programs
I think the only one I could find was discountasp. If someone out there knows of a service offering those five things for less than $20 dollars a month please post a link to that hosting company. A dedicated IP address wold be nice, I have seen some hosts
offer that for an extra $15 a year. For PHP I would use a Linux server just because it is so much cheaper and you get so much more.
PS. I'm not targeting any specific hosting companies, they all fall under the sad state category.
