Godaddy and Windows Hosting Rates

I read this article today "Windows Hosting Rates are killing developers and students... Is Microsoft aware?" while searching through DZone for things to read.  I read over the article and I am going to definitely have to agree with this man.  I am just a mild professional developer not making the big bucks, but working on small projects for low pay like Indialantic Fire department.  This site is dressed up just like a blog and only the template is static, everything else is what a user can enter in an editor window. I thought it was a nifty idea I thought of before the blog idea came to my head. Getting back on track, I am also hurt by Microsoft's ability to look at Windows Hosting Rates. On Go Daddy alone, it cost more than $50.00 a year for a small time web site and when you own a few domains and don't care for Domain forwarding, well it can add up.  It is definitely killing my pocket income.  I want to develop and put content out there, but these prices are difficult.  I know its $50.00 a year, not much right?  well when you have other things to pay for, I wish it was just cheaper.  I do know that Go Daddy is one of the cheapest domain hosting companies out there, but my pocket is still being hurt.  I love developing, I take pride in my work, I just hope it would be cheaper.

The costs of serving these sites is the only reason why I put ads up on my sites.  I would have no need for them, but its how I pay for the service.  I just started blogging too, so I am not making any money at all.  I'm not complaining, but this is a luxury and luxuries always go first when you get strapped for cash.  I just hope I don't give up this luxury.

On a side note: Go Daddy does offer free hosting with banners on top of the page.  I have a couple of domains like that, but I have never seen a banner up on the top as of yet.  (maybe I shouldn't have said that)

As for Microsoft, I might have to pose this question to them.  I don't see why I can't ask this question at the Devconnections conference I am going to this April. On the article itself, they were discussing switching over to a new open source provider just despite the costs.  Is anyone else interested in switching to a new framework because of the prices?  I love ASP.NET.  It would be hard to give up.

Fifty bucks a year is too much?

...

Fifty bucks?

That's like two hours of my time.  Two hours of my time is worth about fifty bucks to me.  I'd charge somebody a MINIMUM of fifty bucks for two hours to pick my mind about my chosen profession.  

So, in terms of work hours, would I be willing to work two hours in exchange for hosting space and a domain name for a website for a whole year?

The answer is, of course, fuck yeah.  If I only have to work two hours to get a whole year's worth of hosting, sign me up.  That's an incredible ROI, considering a website is a way for me to communicate to, potentially, millions and millions of people around the whole world.

If you can't afford to spend fifty bucks a year on a website, its time to change professions.  You're obviously not earning enough in this one.

When I called for an appointment I was told by a bored sounding receptionist that I would have to register with a few that can potentially be helpful to you. That being said, there are a few reasons why you may want to register with an executive search firm if you are considering. A private fee-charging buffalo agency, in addition to understanding the needs of society and customers.

I believe what you said was actually very logical. However, consider this, what if you typed a catchier title? I ain't suggesting your content is not good, but what if you added a post title to maybe grab a person's attention? I mean Spoiled Techie | Godaddy and Windows Hosting Rates is kinda plain. You ought to look at Yahoo's home page and see how they write news titles to grab viewers to click. You might add a video or a related pic or two to get people excited about what you've got to say. In my opinion, it might bring your posts a little bit more interesting.
