As Apple have now closed down the mobile me web site provider I am looking for another hoster to put my web site on. Crazy domains etc seems expensive for a small website.
Your internet provider might have such a service for a small-ish fee?

Smartyhost are very inexpensive, service is good as well, from memory basic hosting and email is about $70 per year,although you may consider that expensive.
If you're a bit savvy and have the bandwidth you can set up a dymanic dns hostname and host your own at home using something like Xerver which is an open source web/FTP server. You'll need some experience with routers to get the appropriate ports set up through your router.

If you have a smallish site try "hostingbay". I find them quite good.
Hosting on a Linux server 1 gig and unlimited emails is under $4.00/month.

Theres pro's and cons, i use to use webcity but they come at a price. There service is great, full cpanel ect and i think now they have ulim mysql db's thankgod as 1 is not enough. They don't overload there servers and there down/up stream is dam fast. These guys are what i consider 1 of the best in australia, you get what you pay for. Though if you arnt going to make the best of the features look else were, as I said there a bit pricey against others due to what they give.

Im with crazy domains just redid my domain and it was 18 bucks for 2 years and the web hosting was 54 bucks for a year What i like about them is their Fantastico Apps to install all your web apps easy as one click and its done.
You can see my small word press site here (http://lordofthesmiths.id.au/wordpress/)
and my small galley site here (http://lordofthesmiths.id.au/PGallery/index.php/) to see what you get in the price. A1 service I've had with them as well.

lol its a wonder id games didn't already have that domain ;)
A friend of mine does websites for people so I asked him:
"Depends what they want to do.
inmotion is good but doesn't allow chat
For his customers that need chat?
"I'm using the silver package of this now
but an unmanaged vps"
"Yeah you choose your linux distro and they leave you to it.
Managed vps is pricey."
So I would say inmotion would probably be the better option :)

I was using freehostia for my Motorsports photos web site, not too bad at the time but I don't know if they are still around. ( Can't chk from work ). And they were free without too much ad stuff included.

I used VentraIP for my hosting. No real problems so far.
Cost me $70/yr, with servers in Melb.

Try Webs.com (http://members.webs.com/s/webs/) it is free but does have a paid service worth a look

I've got a couple of customers using google domains which is cheap and has few options.
I've not looked into it myself at all but it might suit.
