I wouldn't trust them:


Realizing that up-time is of extreme importance to mission critical sites, WebHostOnNet.com has built a number of system monitoring scripts into the operating system of each server on our network. These scripts are designed to monitor, report, and fix various system processes according to a set regiment of criteria. With the assistance of the WebHostOnNet.com NOC staff with the system administration, operating a secure, stable, and reliable web server has never been easier.
For this we are happy to stand behind our 98% Uptime guarentee, ensuring your page is always accessable.

I also find it suspicious that their credit card icon actually says "cards" in the bottom right.

Looks like someone who bought a virtual server and is now trying to make a buck by hosting a ton of people. Probably some teenager or something. I wouldn't trust them heh....at least not till I saw quite a few of the sites they host.

That looks too good to be true. I didnt see any little *, they must have been in like size -2 font, saying if you sign up, an additional service charge of $20, will be applied every month.

I tried something like that called Cyberwings. They gave about 500MB with all the cool features for $5 a year.
No kidding.
I had wonderful service for about a year, until they went under.

I'm currently paying around 175 GBP for approx 110MB* & 7.5GB* transfer per month.

* The values keep going up.

I'm beginning to wonder whether I'm paying too much. However, the level of service & performance of the site is excellent.

the only catch on this is that for the $1.95 you only get like 20 megabytes
