so i have a friend, acquaintance would be a more befitting title, wh convince me to host with him, paid the guy $70 bucks, 20 for ZISPA, the domain i mean and then $50 for hosting.
So am new to these things, and i a like dude, my site has a potential to become uhm, popular, like get frequent visits and so on, will you be able to support this, he says yeah, so we strike up a deal
and in summary for $50 hosting a year, i got 500MB disk space, am not complaining since there are very few images on my site and i only have used like 40 MB, but what worries me now is the Monthly Bandwidth Transfer its 3GB and having launched the site last week, i alredy have 400 users, and the cpane stats inform me that i have already used one gig of my Monthly Bandwidth Transfer.
A bit disturbing for a site thats a week old, so i whatsapp the guy, and i a like dude, what does Monthly Bandwidth Transfer mean, coz i am like already used up one third of whatever it is, so what happens when it rouns out, and he says your site stops showing.!!! WTF!!! you said f my site gets heavy traffic you can support this, and he is like dont worry, the stats are no big deal, i will fix it, the one gig used up is probably coz its a new site, i am like ok cool but i have a bad feeling about this.
Is this guy ripping me off? is this a fair deal for $50/year? I was just over at godaddy and i saw fantastic webhosting plans of $3 bucks a month , unlimited bandwidth and 100gb disk space unlimited mails etc which means per year they charge $36 right?
so please help, what do you think i should do guys?this is a ripoff right?whats the like common charge or benchmark for webhosting for an average site?
