I would welcome a list of suggestions of what I should be looking for if I am to select either an ISP, or another company located somewhere around the world to host my web site.
I am based in the UK and my site contains information on investment strategies and opinions. Rather than paying my ISP something in the region of £30 a month (about $50), I am tempted to choose one of the hundreds of US companies that are now charging less than $10 (about £6!) for 50 megs of space and unlimited bandwith and email, and unlimited hits.
What is bandwith and what are the pitfalls of going with these small companies compared with say webcom.com? I have been told that I have full access to cgi bin and all that. So whats the catch?
