    I would pay what I need to pay.

    Surely you just need to do some competitor research. Either get customers through low cost pricing (which will make it hard to make any money) or through a great service offering (which is difficult to market).

    To answer your question I pay around $20 per month on average for my large sites, and host my smaller ones as free addon domains. My current host is fantastic and I am massively loyal, especially after so much bad experience in the past with useless hosts that promise 99.9% reliability utterly falsely, and then sting you with extra charges for DB usage, extra domains etc etc.

    @Alexishost
    I have done lot of research in the field of hosting industry
    As you are planing to get around 50-100 sign up a day , you need to have reasonable pricing less than 5$ p/m and good affiliate payout and have huge discount for first year
    Few pricing of industry leaders
    IPAGE,POWWEB,IPOWER& OTHER SISTERS COMPANY'S (They all are owned by a same company )Charge around $36 to $40 for first year including Free domain name
    Bluehost charge around 5$ p/m
    Hostgator charge around 60$ year
    DreamHost charge around 120$ year ( For First year they charge only $9.95 including domain name)
    ixwebhosting , justhost and other similar hosting they charge around 42$ Year Including domain name

    and Alexishost if you need any help regarding hosting industry i am always there

    I use an Ultimate VPS Package from Servint, which is quite expensive at $129 per month. I'm prepared to pay more for a company I trust, good uptime and excellent customer support.

    Under $5/month pricing
    Thank you, realitybites.in . the personal plan is set up under $5/mo , $3.99/mo to be exact. and business hosting plan for $6.99/month.
    Let see how it goes.

    Affiliate : high payout and discount.
    Would you tell me more about affiliate payout and discount?
    I am not sure about it. It seem it will cut our last year profit.

    Offering unlimited stuff is a bad idea.. most customers are now aware there is no such thing as unlimited. Avoid it.. clients will feel you are oversell.

    For my hosting for my site I, it costs $5 per month. I think that is a pretty reasonable rate. webhostuk, you will be surprised, a lot of people still don't know this.
