Honestly I like the prices of TCH, a virtual hosting that offer 20GB, cPanel, support, 750 MB/space, good network at only $5 is nearly a steal. I would never seek for something cheaper.
And if it's going for business, then spending for example $200 x month would not be a problem, because in that case you need quality, support, good network, etc.
But for a free server that offer just a file download, I can accept some little compromise on the quality (no fast network, no extra services, little support).
I'm not looking for 300 GB bandwidth/month at $10 but at a hosting solution (for example) at around $60/month. I will try to get some income through advertising and selling products associated with the project. If after one year the income will cover a high percent of the server expenses GOOD! else probably I have to shut it down (the teramosaic project). This is the reason for a cheap solution, just for let survive a free personal site.
Please understand my situation.
