1&1 offer a number of hosting plans starting at only $3.99
Their plans are limited by resources such as storage space and ftp accounts. The more you want the larger of a plan you need to buy. This is one downside as many of the popular host now offer unlimited storage and bandwidth for very low prices.
My personal experience with 1&1 is their control panel. For me as a seasoned webmaster I found my way around their control panel but I think it may be a but overwhelming at first for new customers. With that said it is a great web host with a lot of customers and your site will be safe with them.
