The Elected Hosting looks like a great resource for backing up a few sites. And the interface is much fancier than the GooHost solution.
Of course, the Elected Hosting solution costs 853% more for the first year than what I paid using the eBay(TM) auction. And, you should be able to get one of these GooHost accounts for much less than the $2.11 US that I paid for the entire year. I was in a hurry to test, and wasn't worried about saving a dollar.
This Elected Hosting solution has the following limits:
Subdomains - 10
Parked Domains - 1
Addon Domains - 5
MySQL Databases - 5
The GooHost solution has the following:
Subdomains - Unlimited
Parked Domains N/A
Addon Domains - Unlimited
MySQL Databases - Unlimited
However, each Moodle(TM) workshop that runs at the Texas Computer Education Association (TCEA) Convention, I will need at least 17 subdomains, each running its own instance of Moodle(TM), each with its own MYSQL database.
The only catch? After the first year, if you don't win another auction, the cost would jump to about $100 US.
But, the TCEA Convention is next February, so a second year doesn't matter to me. I am going to kill all the subdomains after the classes, anyway.
"Cheap" was the most important consideration, but, this solution may be better lif ong-term stability is more important.
"EasY" was also important. This unlimted domain, unlimited subdomain account saved me from having to build a server and carry it to the class.
