The Good Low-cost storage and bandwidth; automated backups and virus scanning; supports CGI, PHP, and FrontPage extensions; 90-day money-back guarantee.

The Bad Site-building software is buggy; design templates are limited; no e-commerce or marketing tools.

The Bottom Line Brinkster offers a reasonable amount of bandwidth and storage for a low price, but its above-average technical support makes it stand out.

Brinkster can get you set up on the Web pretty quickly, with a decent amount of storage and bandwidth and some easy-to-use tools at an attractive price. But you'll want to bring your own design software, e-commerce tools, and technical expertise to this party. A discount host such as iPowerWeb gives you more storage, bandwidth, and tools for your money, while Brinkster gives EarthLink's hosting service fair competition for best technical support.
