In this article I decided to list cheapest web hosting companies available in hosting market, offering services under five bucks a month. It's a dirt cheap money, for an option to serve your website online.

Thus I'm not a fan of shared hosting (and exactly shared hosting fells under dirt cheap), instead I prefer VPS (this blog is served with Linode VPS), if I would need to choose a cheap hosting for a new website or blog I would most probably look only on two companies from listed bellow - Hostgator and Bluehost. Most of the hosting providers are specialized in providing custom WordPress hosting. Thus as a Drupal advocate, I can say, most Drupal sites will run just fine on these shared hostings.
