Where's the cheapest place to buy a non-NZ domain name with anonymous/proxy registration?  www.1and1.com is the lowest price I've come across so far - $US 5.99.

Also looking for budget webhosting... are these $1-per-month hosts worthwhile for small web sites?  I was looking at www.3ix.org but they have poor feedback on the "webhost review" sites.

Yup, I'm aware of GoDaddy but they're more expensive than 1and1.com.

I did use GoDaddy but after issues with e-mail bouncing then deciding I wanted Hosted Exchange I moved to 1and1 a month or 2 ago. I only really use the email side of it (and use the webhosting for moving large files around etc mainly) but so far I am yet to have any issues. I had a fair few questions before I signed up but their helpdesk and FAQs were both very helpful.

We use a US company called HostCentric to host our company web site:

http://www.hostcentric.com/product/onePlan.bml

US$6.95 per month buys you 300MB of Disk Space with 3GB of traffic per month.

We have been with this company since 1998 i.e. almost 10 years now and wouldn't still be there if the reliability wasn't EXCELLENT.

I know that you can get hosting for a little less than that now, but US$6.95 per month is stuff all really and it runs like clockwork 24/7.

You get a FREE Domain Registration so long as you sign up for a one or two year plan.

My 2c worth anyway...

Avoid GoDaddy like the plague.
They like to blacklist domains, so you end up missing emails.  And their support isn't very good.

Cheers,

dreamhost.com - I use them. They have proxy domain registration, so no one can get your details. I think my first year of hosting cost me about $20 USD with a promo code, and thats for 160GB and growing of disk space, and a couple of TB of bandwidth a month.

Service has been great.


[self edit: "so know one can get" - me fail english? - thats un-possible]

I second dreamhost. Relatively good uptime and rather good feature set as well.

LOL @ Grant
Mate, I would never have referred you if I thought you would have a bad experience with Go Daddy.
I've been a happy customer for over 3 years.

What support were you expecting at that cheap hosting price?
Besides, you had me to help you for FREE.
