The most impressive deal I have seen recently is a rack mounted Raq 3
server (300 MHz AMD CPU, 32 Meg RAM, 8.4G HD, SSL, Apache, Linux etc.) 4
IP addresses, $0 setup USD$99 a month - with 51 Gigabytes of bandwidth.
That is ~AUD$182 a month for 51 gigs, or 0.36 cents a Megabyte.
They have racks of these things, all well connected in a data centre
somewhere near Washing Tundy Sea. No adult content, but.
They come already set up to run about 200 web sites, with 5 email
accounts each, Majordomo, Webalizer, web-based admin etc. etc. All you
have to do is rent one of these things and then sell websites on them -
and you are a hosting company!
They cost USD$1299 to buy.
