It's a local wireless ISP. Its name would be of no use to you unless you live in Toronto.

I use dream host.

Click here

For $7.95/month you can get 4800MB of webspace and 120GB of bandwidth. Everyweek, your webspace increases by 40MB and your bandwidth limit increases by 1GB.

Good stuff, no?

@Darth Wong, how much do you pay for your wireless ISP ? Do you like wireless, do you notice any extra lag ? (no need to name the company, just curious on your experience.)

I do live in Toronto ;)

Just wondering, do you also use the bandwidth and space or is it just some empty wasteland?

Myself I work for the company that hosts my website :).

When you see such offer it means web host is overselling server resources. That host will put more clients on server than server can handle just to pay for server, and if they want to get any profit at all then they would put even more clients. So server will be slow for everyone and noone would really be able to use even tenth of promised resources. Stay away from such cheap hosts if you want your website to be online at least 23 hours a day.

I pay roughly $200 CDN per month. It's a corporate connection, not a home connection. And the performance is excellent; there is no technical downside to a wireless connection as long as you get a good one, and I have symmetrical bandwidth: not a small feature. But I know that's too expensive for a typical home connection; my home DSL connection is much cheaper.

Uhh... that's wrong. I use a very lage portion of the space and bandwidth I'm offered and I've never had ANY down time. Dreamhost is a VERY good webhost. Please don't badmouth something without knowing anything about it.

Your forum has only 1643 posts in it as of today. I seriously doubt that it's putting much of a load on their server, and the server load associated with heavy DB access is much different than the server load associated with simple static webpage serving.
