    Please suggest such a service/offer yours. Let's start with:
    - 5+ years in business (3 years minimum if you have raving (good) reviews)
    - 1 Gb+ of storage
    - 10 Gb+ traffic
    - Unlimited Add-on Domains
    - Unlimited Parked domains
    - Backups
    - Cron Jobs
    - Ability to freely modify MX and CName
    - Links to reviews of your service on a third party website which you do not pay to advertise on (links to reviews by other users on FWS work too, even if you are a forum sponsor) <- This is the most important step.
    - cPanel would be nice... but it is not required
    - I don't allow my webhost to manage my domain name so I don't care if you provide one or not.
    - I am looking to pay annually... $100 / year MAX. This is for a non-profit... so every penny counts.

    side note: when does the god forsaken reCAPTCHA go away... I have orthographic dyslexia and it is damn near impossible to read. I cannot distinguish the sound either. If you post an offer and I don't reply.. .sorry the CAPTCHA caused it... i'll edit my post instead.

    What kind of non-profit is it, out of curiosity? Depending on what it is, a lot of people will give you a pretty large discount, or even provide you with hosting for free, if it's a good cause.

    As I mentioned above, we can certainly work on the price more after we find out what kind of non-profit organization this is, however in the meantime, we can give you the 20% FWS member discount.

    As well, we don't offer unlimited add-on or parked domains. In fact, you generally don't want to go with a company that offers that. Somebody could potentially host thousands of add-on domains, and completely grind the [DNS] servers to a halt, serving the requests for thousands of domains. If you come up with a realistic number, we can certainly work with you to get those set up for you.

    10 GB RAID-10 Disk Space
    25 GB Bandwidth
    Daily on-site, nightly off-site backups
    cPanel w/ Softaculous and RVSitebuilder
    Cron Jobs are fine
    MX and CNAME records modifiable via cPanel

    $4.79/mo. using discount code: fws20feb2012

    We are a legally-registered corporation, conducting business for 16 years. We don't have a whole lot of reviews on the web (good or bad), quite honestly because we have always dealt mainly with real brick and mortar businesses in our local hometown, who have no clue what Webhostingtalk, Freewebspace, etc. even are. They need their websites running quickly, 24/7, and that's exactly what we provide. We let our uptime and performance speak for itself.

    I would love to edit my post... but since the moderators are sleeping.. .I cannot as it hasn't been approved. I am very interested in finding more information out from WSWD. I will get as much needed info off your website and PM you if I have other questions.
    I am looking for approximately 5 add-on domains... I just don't 'like' to be capped in case I decide I want to add another domain... so not likely to ever be above 10 domains.


    Technut, sorry, I don't find your company to be reliable enough for me.
    Lets Fix this so you can potentially get the next one you put an offer out on FWS...
    Sorry :-\.

    I come up a touch short on the longevity requirement- 2012 is my third year in the business, I started out in August of 2009. But I have been a participant in the FWS host durability study conducted by the member TaoPhoenix, so if you have any doubts about my stability, my history is documented in the pages of this thread.

    Everything else I can easily meet.

    SeraphimLabs Starter Custom
    24 Subdomain/Domain Parking
    24 MySQL Databases
    10 e-mail addresses
    15GB/month bandwidth
    1500MB storage
    Virtualmin or CPanel, your choice.
    PHP, CGI, Perl

    Starting at: $2/month ($24 yearly)

    My billing system is designed to operate in a pre-pay manner, you can pay any amount at whatever interval suits your fancy and it automatically counts down, sending you an email when your account needs to be refilled. Yearly payment interval is no problem.

    You might note that the plan listed on my site has lower limits for the domain settings and databases. Your site would have that customized entirely on me, and if you need it increased further in the future all you need to do is ask.

    Although I prefer Virtualmin myself and have had very good results with it, I do offer CPanel as well.

    All of my services are based on real resource offerings, something that many hosts cheat on. When I assign your account space and bandwidth, those resources are dedicated to your account and will never be shared with anyone else's account for any reason.

    Please lock this thread. I have received the requested information. The majority of persons responding failed to read the requirements from my first post. JWS and WSWS are the only two who seem to be able to read :-\. FWS isn't what it used to be.
