    I have heard that clubsnap hosting is cheap and good. I personally need php, sql and cgi-bin functionality, so I use my own host. You might want to check them out... www.differenthost.com. Their prices are arguably the lowest in the country; <S$100 a year. Downside is performance can be intermittent sometimes (ie down for 15 minutes at a time). Still, if you don't need critical 24 hour hosting, they might be worth considering.

    For personal domain name, the standard rate should be around $58 per year.

    So you can have your own choice of www.your-name.com or .com.sg or .net or anything else.

    For hosting, www.doteasy.com provides free hosting.

    I would strongly advise against differenthost.

    Server down occurences are often, and their tech support as well as aftersales arent reliable.

    You don't need a domain that ends with .sg. Not only is it more expensive, it is longer and most users would not see any benefit from it.

    Going rates for a "normal" (.com, .net, .org, .info, .biz) domain can varies, depending on where you register them, from US$8.88 to US$35.

    That company looks very good, except for the bandwidth cap. My site generates around 7gb a month...

    I've just registered my website.

    It's 3.50 per month for the server and 17 per year for the domain name.

    Has the usual PHP and 1 mySql database, but 3gb transfer bandwidth and allows only 50 users at 1 go.

    But there's one about 8 plus per month with unlimited bandwidth and no user limit.

    However the data center is based in US, so loading may be slower than a local one.
    But local ones cost around 11 at least.

    My website is here

    I'm using www.poznet.com

    I'm on the buget plan, ($80/yr) the price has just been revised last year to $135 now. I find it pretty fast, PHP, mySql, unlimited emails, ftps. 2GB bandwidth with 100MB space.

    I'm hosting my gallery below in my sig.

    Cons: No telnet/ssh or X-windows session. (Impt to me as a Linux User).

    For my domain name, I'm registering via www.registerfly.com at USD$9.99 / year (I think).

    You can't purchase .sg domains unless u've a registered business. Which costs damn bloody expensive too! Get a .com or .org.

    I am using www.linksky.com. They are fast, they provide 24/7 support and I had no downtime in the last year. I pay US$4.95 per month and that gives me 6GB of monthly transfer without throttling (extra 1GB would cost US$2), ssh access, mysql, perl and php.

    I register domain with www.godaddy.com for US$8.95 per year.

    A friend of mine hosts in Singapore at www.usonyx.net for S$240 per year he gets free domain registration, php, perl, ready to use photo gallery and even full root access(!!!).

    I wouldn't mind SSH access or even X-windows, but ROOT access??? Then I can go around probing into every user's directory and mess and read their data etc etc!!

    That is dangerous IMHO.
