well, i think i'm not misplaced this thread since this is random ramblings (i don't even know what's the meaning of ramblings ) pardon my bad english. okay, go straight to the point. if anyone know or ever use web hosting service or buy a domain, can you tell me which site sell cheap domain and low cost web hosting but with good enough quality? recently i bought a domain and a web hosting packet from local company in my country, i think it's good to love your country's product, but not the quality, i'm disappointed, the server was too slow and i'm getting pain when i tried to change file permission and other setting of server. as information, this is one of the best web hosting provider in my country. well, as a power outages country i can't expect much of this country product. gladly, i've tried using a free hosting located abroad i guess US) that hosting company was great and fast with great huge bandwidth and space, i think i'm mad, free and fast, yes but that's true. well, i'm just afraid of this web hosting won't free anymore in the future and i'll have pain since i can't easily phone the customer support since the phone bill will be WOW. cause i experience once a good free hosting suddenly must paid with all my file still in that server. okay, so, anyone have information about it? better not using credit card to pay since i don't have any. paypal? nope, i have an account with no money, it's cost high to transfer money from my country to paypal. i'm doomed. thank you so much. edited to add: i've search through search engine, but i think it's better to ask the native / *indigenous* / local resident (dunno which is true) since they should know better than me that live thousand kilometer away.
