I would recommend Hostingfest, Best cheap and reliable web-hosting company in Europe, Their plans are starting from 1.99$ per month they have both shared and re seller plans, and they also provide custom plans according to clients request, they are very reasonable with prices and are cheap.

Best answer
basically all host providers offer the same thing: unlimited plan, support, free domain.

You need to concentrate on the users reviews if everyone is happy with the host.  

Then pay attention on the money back guarantee. alot of hosts out there when you cancel the hosting for some reason will charge you cancellation fee or prorate.

then free domain. Does the host offer free domain for life (while you host with them - like or just for the 1st year.

Also review how much will the hosting cost after your promo period expires. These low prices all over are only to pull you in, then once this 1, 2 or 3 years are up you will be charged full price renewal fee, which is around ~$8-$10/month.

First set up your criteria (how much bandwidth  and capacity do you need, how much you are willing to spend, if you need a data base, and any other specifications that your website would need). After that you should visit several hosting websites and take a look on what services they offer and for what prices and figure which one will give you what you need for the best price.
