Thanks for the help Singularity2006. I'll definitely check those two places out. I think I'll start with the really affordable first. :)
Thanks again.

Maybe not, everyone at yourhostsucks seems to really hate them:

Also they are being investigated by the FL Attorney General:

Also someone on cgtalk had problems with them:

lol, that's a pretty funny domain. What a great place to find the down low on other web hosts. :thumbsup:

I just read those forums. That sucks. Thanks alot for the heads up Beaker. I'm glad you sent that reply. was looking rather tempting. Do you know of any good hosting companies?

hi there.

i'm planning to get a webspace for my future 3d works and was wondering if there's any webhost in canada that accept check.

most of what i come across only accept credit/visa ect...

thank you.

most places do not accept checks because they take too long to process. They want instant access to your credit line so that people can't leech their services for a month while the check processes only to find that the check is either bad or has insufficient funds or has a stop payment labeled on it. So no, you most likely will NOT find any place that accepts checks as a payment method.
