I've done a survey of about a dozen random webhosts and I'm staggered about the huge variation in prices: the cheapest so far that meets my needs is $15 per month and the most expensive is over $200 - a difference of more than ten times!
Can anyone explain the difference? There are probably a few obvious differences - presumably you get what you pay for in terms of reliability and service, many of the cheapies are hosted overseas, and it appears many hosts simply haven't reduced their prices in line with the market. But is there anything else I've missed?
In particular, Webfarm - part of the ICONZ group - offers E1 (500MB) for $30/month. Go to ICONZ and their nearest corresponding plan is Web Host 6 (240MB) for $150/month. What could possibly explain this difference?
