The host’s general purpose 1GB virtual cloud server running on a Linux OS seems to be the cheapest option. By adding just 10GB of bandwidth and their required managed infrastructure service to this, Rackspace will host your site for $74.56 per month.
Some domains may be available at auction because the owner who purchased it no longer wants it. Auction domain sales work similar to eBay – several people will make a bid during a specified period of time, and the highest bidder will win. These domains can range in price from less than $100 to thousands, depending on the name and competition.
We like how HostGator not only allows more sophisticated site builders to customize their dedicated or virtual server, but also to choose Linux or Windows hosting. While HostGator doesn’t support SSDs on all plans, many of its servers can be equipped with the faster drives.

Dedicated servers are exactly what they sound like: an entire server dedicated to hosting only your website. The web hosting provider has a physical server, and everything with which it has been configured is used only for your website. If you’re done sharing web server resources with other clients and websites, this is the option for you.

Both HostGator and GoDaddy had slightly different plus and minus points, but none were ultimately persuasive enough to pick out a clear winner. We were impressed with their price point, setup process, backend and performance though.
Before trying the buy service, you should try contacting the domain owner if possible. You can use the URL http://whois.domaintools.com/domain.com and replace the domain.com to see if there is public contact information for the domain. If you contact them, but don’t receive a response, then try the buy service.
I had the same opinion, but I have heard they have really turned things around with their hosting. I haven’t tried them in the last 4-5 years but I might give them a shot.
