Question by danyol: Whats my best option for domain and hosting?
Hi, I’m a filmmaker and am setting up a website to show some of my short films and my showreel. What are my best options to buy a domain and host it? Theres going to be about 4 videos on there, each between 5 and 10 mins, so obviously I need enough space for those. Whats the cheapest and best options please?

The company that I have used, and the one with the best prices I have found for “unlimited” access is http://www.superuser.net They will host and register your domain name for free as long as you are with them and if you choose the setup with unlimited access then you don’t have to worry about getting hit with thousands of dollars worth of bills. In short most hosting sites give you a preset limit on visitors megs of downloads and then if you go over charge you accordingly. This can get horribly expensive. These folks start at around 12 bucks a month for 2 gigs of storage space and have unlimited downloads so no matter how many folks go to your site you won’t pay a bit more. They also have anonymous FTP you can setup which will allow your viewers a much faster download than regular HTML and can be done with simple click off your webpage. I started a website for a non-profit civic organization in California awhile back and set them up to be hosted there. Works excellent. Also they have a checkout and catalog system already installed where you can sell and categorize your wares if you want to sell any of your stuff and take credit cards, etc. If anybody knows of a site with a better deal please post it and let me know as well. 🙂
