Looking for a way to put a web site on the internet?  You need a web hosting company.  Depending upon your needs, there are many choices.  My top pick is:
 

Criteria Choice of web hosting company Sample web sites
#1 Overall, more installed features than Dreamhost, but also much lower bandwidth BlueHost 

If paid annually: $7.95/mo, Free Setup, Total $95.40

2000 MB storage, 75 GB bandwidth monthly.

Bluehost offers substantially more bandwidth and storage space than Lunarpages. They appear to have all the same features.  I'm just now trying them on www.jbslemmer.com  (this website) and www.resourcesforwebsites.com.  So far, I have found them to be utterly reliable!

They use cpanel and Fantasico, with many scripts installed

 This web site!

Number 2, Overall

LunarPages

$7.95/month
Pretty good:  40 GB monthly bandwidth, 1000 MB storage, support forum, web stats.

This one is definitely the in the top 3

Best for prototyping multiple websites, but more limited features than Lunarpages

Hostony

$11.85/month if you prepay a year - and that allows you to host up to 10 different domains!!!! Effectively only $1.18 per web site per month!

See the review at: http://www.10-cheapwebhosting.com/hosts/Hostony.php

Their web site is: http://hostony.com/

3000 MB of storage, 80 GB of monthly bandwidth, 20 mailing listss, unlimited MySQL dbs etc.  GREAT for web developers.

Web control panel (cpanel) http://67.15.48.21:2082/  - fast insecure interface

https://67.15.48.21:2083/  - slow secure interface

 

www.securityresources.org

www.Benivia.com

High bandwidth, lots of storage space and good features, but max is 5 gig/day, good if you never exceed 5gig in any one day.

Powweb

$7.77/month, 150 GB monthly bandwidth (up to % GB every day), 1000 MB storage, support forum, web stats

www.pickyourown.org 
Another good one - at least on paper, but I haven't tried them yet

Globat  

$7.50/month, free domain name or transfer

2000 MB storage, 60 GB/month bandwidth, unlimited MySQL databases. See Review at http://www.10-cheapwebhosting.com/hosts/Globat.php 

Another highly rated webhost that I haven't tried yet

iPowerweb

$7.95/month, free domain name or transfer

800 MB storage, 40 GB/month bandwidth, 3 MySQL databases. Autoresponder, email forwarding, 400 email accts. See Review at http://www.10-cheapwebhosting.com/hosts/iPowerWeb.php 

High reliability, but very pricey

Hostway

www.hostway.com 

sitecontrol login.  Also expensive.

DreamHost - Bandwidth is excellent, but support is slow and poor.  May be good in the future, but they appear to be struggling with growth right now.

If paid annually: $7.95/mo, Free Setup, Total $95.40

800 MB storage, 120 GB bandwidth monthly

Huge amount of storage space and monthly bandwidth, but they don't use cpanel (they made their own control panel, which may be good, but it does not include Fantastico.  They had few installed scripts, so you would have to install your own.   I also found that they have not lived up to their marketing claims; they are slow to respond to support emails (more than 36 hours) and there are many complaints of lost and slow emails and downtime on their customer forum.

Dirt Cheap - If that is your main criteria, for a small, simple web site  http://buywebhost.net/hosting.htm
Only choose this one if cheap is your only criteria.  I don't use them any more, myself. They were too unreliable, too much down time.

Web site tools

selfpromotion.com Excellent and inexpensive search engine promotion and other tools
GoDaddy Great for domain name registrations - cheap and they do a good job!
cheap-domainregistration.com Domain registrar - pyo
http://cheap-domain-name-registrar.com/   Domain registrar PYOuk
itsyourdomain.com/   Domain registrar - more expensive than GoDaddy, but also good.
