Another web hosting question. *urgent* has:

• 2400 MB Storage
• 120 GB Transfer ($1/GB extra)
• 3 Domains Hosted
• 15 Sub-Domains Hosted
• 600 Mailboxes
• 75 Shell Users
• One FREE .com/.net/.org/.info domain
• CGI/FrontPage 2002 Extensions
• PHP4, perl, python, C, C++
• Unlimited MySQL Databases
• IMAP, POP3, and Web-Based email access
• Unlimited email aliases, auto-responders, announcement lists, discussion lists, media streaming, and more.

$9.95 per month ($49.95 setup fee) in US currency. has:

25 MB of Space
1 Gigabytes of Bandwidth
2 POP3 E-mail Accounts
Phone Support
Daily Backups
cPanel (Control Panel)

$8.95 per month ($0.00 setup fee) in CAD currency.

It seems like dreamhost is a crazy deal, but I'm cautious there's some hidden fees.

I've looked at the page and I'm trying to find some hidden stuff, but I can't find it...

If its a legit page, then go for nexus. They are located on front street in a huge data center. I have my hosting through them and its amazing. Reliable and they are great guys. The biggest reason I went with them was because of the servers being in Toronto. Also, I believe sympatico/rogers gets internet through the same place.

Canadian badwidth is still more expensive than American, so there is no point of going with Nexus. They offer much less for the same money. The biggest factor of choosing hosting is technical support, and how fast they fix their problems. Servers being in Toronto, doesn't mean you get faster technical support.
UncleJ I had shared hosting, dedicated hosting, and my own servers at 151 Front.
I was never happy with shared hosters, and I had a lot of them.
I rented dedicated servers from quite a few companies, some had terrible support, some good, some very fast.
My own servers are still at 151 Front Street, even though I can fully control my servers, come to colocation and work on the on site, it still much more expensive than renting bandwidth from states and SERVER (servers at 151 street I had to buy)
