I'm looking into different web hosting account prices; in particular, I'm looking into the following web hosting provider:

The cheapest package they offer is US$12.50. Is this reasonable? What's your take?

It sounds desparately cheap to me. In fact, I would go so far as to say it sounds too cheap. At that price, I would be immediately worried about reliability.

I took a look at their site and the prices were a big higher. Its very cheap.
Finding a good host is never easy. I search for user reviews and this usually helps in evaluating the good and not so good hosts.

3ix.org is the cheaper web-hosting, too
It about 1$/mo with the smallest plan.

$12.50 p/a is too good to be true.

I wouldn't touch it, but maybe it's OK for some others... Shocked

Yes, I also think $12.50 p/a sounds too cheap to rely on it. Everyone wants things cheap but it goes beyond certain line, it creates doubt. Anything less than 4-5U$ per month sounds too cheap to me for a reliable web hosting.

Cheap plans obviously have some limitations also. These plans are good for the websites of 5 pages or so. If you need to have a large website with a heavy traffic on it, you will have to choose some good hosting plan and company as well.

I guess their hosting server is not up-time running 24/7 for a cheap price. I prefer to have a hosting with unlimited subdomains and unlimited web space just like Bluehost and hostgator. They are one of the top 10 and reputable hosting server in the world.

There should always a proper balance of hosting price and customer service.
It always happen that we signup by getting attracted by the prices and end up with dissatisfaction. So I always recommend to check the reviews of the company before getting an hosting account.

I have hosting in the UK and USA.

I use http://vidahost.com which is based in Bath. It starts at 17 per year. I suppose that works out at about $25 pa.

I have the more expensive hosting plans with them but I started one on the cheapest level.

Thay are very good, always quick to respond and you get the same couple of guys dealing with problems (pretty much always created by me) on the phone and via ticket.

And in case you are wondering I have no connection with them and that is not an affiliate link as you can see.

I like Vidahost too for small UK sites, perfect combination of quality and value. I've tried some super cheap hosts and some are OK but some are awful. Like having no way to install Wordpress in cpanel or addon domains.
