What's the most you should pay for web site hosting?
Can anybody tell me what's the most you should have to pay for web site hosting. We have company who wants to charge us $ 1,800.00 / yr to host our site. I still have to ask what's included in that price, but I think there are crazy. Any input would be appreciated.
Have you looked at S-Drive?
S-Drive is a set of integrated services provided by CoffeeCup that work together toward a single purpose: Simplifying the process of creating and maintaining your website!
I would recommend you take a look at it as plans start for around $4.95 per month!
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.
Here's my S-Drive site with
examples of what can be accomplished in VSD.

This is a site I built for my work.(RSD)
This is a site I built for use in my job.(HTML Editor)
This is my personnel site used for testing and as an easy way to share photos.(RLM imported to RSD)
Don't get sucked into one of those deals!
A $3.99 to $5.99 a month hosting plan covers most anything you want/need. Even adding SSL wouldn't bump it up much more. I have accounts with a few different hosts and an S-Drive account, too. S-Drive is extremely reliable and very easy to use.
It could also be that the hosting company is providing additional services that are related to your web site. If you are in a particular vertical market, it might be that they are offering a package that not only provides hosting, but also ties into your billing and gives you other services. For example, I have an orthodontist client, and we used to tie his site into a 3rd party system that interfaced with his billing and imaging systems. Patients could go online, see their accounts, pay their bill, and even view the teeth images.
On the other hand, if you have a standard web site that is like the majority of the web sites out there, $150/mth is extreme overkill. Hosting with S-drive meets the needs of most sites.
I think the key is to determine the needs of your site and then find a server that provides it, but if you have a pretty standard web site, S-Drive could be a great choice for you.

server hosting, brute force security, search engine registrations, maintenance, service inclusive. I still think it's way to much, but it's not my call.
