Unix Web Hosting - $7.50 / Month
Globat was founded by some of the original web hosting industry pioneers with a focus purely on the essentials of hosting and customer service. Still, Globat as a web hosting company is a very new provider in a very established market, entering into operation in 2001. The company hosts customers on a fully redundant, custom-designed network infrastructure of brand-name equipment such as Foundry, Cisco, Network Appliance and Sun Microsystems.

With a generous 50 GB of transfer for $7.50 a month, Globat has a strong offering. Despite not providing some additional features, Globat's PHP scripting, unlimited MySQL databases and 1 GB of storage will basically allow you to run a robust website for very little money.
If you're a cautious consumer, then the 15-day money-back guarantee might leave you wondering . . why not 30-days like most other hosts? Lack of a shared SSL server or any shopping cart with the Budget Special makes it difficult to recommend Globat for an Ecommerce-based website.
