I Need Cheap Hosting....

I missed out on the DreamHost 777 deal awhile back.....so now I need a cheap hosting package for a new website/webboard i'm launching. It will be in PHP, so I'll need that as a minimum. I don't need much outside of PHP support, a decent transfer amount, and some e-mail hosting. (5 or less addresses)

I've checked out some of the hosting companies I used professionally, but as expected....they are expensive for my needs.

Suggestions?

http://doorhost.net/entry.html $25/yr
http://hostpc.com/content/view/131/2/ $29.99/yr
http://www.totalchoicehosting.com/we...ing-plans.html $44/yr

Try Dixiesys (http://www.dixiesys.com) or the no-frills sister company 8-95.com (http://www.8-95.com)

Looking at them now.

I know www.dixiesys.com. Heard good things about it. I'm cheap though (i know...<$10 mon is CHEAP), but the $25-$30/yr is SO tempting.

I feel like a part of me has been amputated.

Hmm...I just realized I might be able to use my current hosting plan with 1and1 (3 year biz hosting). I can manage multiple domains and have them point to seperate places (just need to keep seperate folder hiearchies)

Anyone have 1and1? I have some questions. Ideally I'd like to use my current space and have 2 websites run from it. I believe I can split the file setup to do this, and I know I can have multiple domains. I can point 1 domain to a subsection of the IP, and have my other domain point at the original IP. Has anyone done this?

I wish I had my hosting guys...they were much better at this than I am.

Ok...got everything setup....but now I can't get the freaking database location! Stupid 1and1 has "Made For Stupid People" shortcuts. I'm not the smartest, but I don't want their stupid wizard for making a database, I just need to know the location, and what my PW is....(I assume my default FTP login)

WTF happened?

I'm guessing bandwidth over-run?

I see some old rules have been forgotten.
