    no idea if this is in the right forums, move if needed.

    I useually get my webhosting from nice people who kindly give it to me :)
    but there accounts have either ran out or just dont work. So I've no webspace. im gonna ahve to use BT (ISP) or wannadoo (work) they should be alright for now.
    But if I do want to buy my own (with a domain) what should I be looking for and how much should I really pay?

    cheers

    It depends on how much bandwidth and space your going to need.

    Theres also uploadit.org and similar free services, but im going to purchase my own webspace for pictures etc and for a mate to run his forums soon from www.offbeathosting.com very good rates and you can pay in good old uk stearling :) Then just go to ukreg or 123reg and register a domain name or if its .com your after godaddy are doing some good deals atm

    See link in sig.
    Domain wise, 123-reg.co.uk are what i use, 5 quid gets you a .co.uk for 2 years, dont pay more than that tbh. .com's etc are more though....

    They're the main questions, first one especially. For somewhere to upload images you're using on forums plus a personal site that's not going to get a great deal of traffic, one of the Starter packages at around £15/year should give you about 50Mb storage and at least 1Gb/month bandwidth. Should be ample, you can always upgrade in the future if you get popular or need more features.

    RTT's k1z looks OK at £14/year for the 2Gb/month Starter, but they cut you off for the rest of the month if traffic goes over. I'm paying 34sp £15/year for 1Gb/month and with any over-traffic they let it accumulate till I owe them £1.50 for an extra Gb. Suits me, works out cheaper than the next package up, but I'll probably use k1z for another site with not much traffic.
