Need opinion on low priced webhosting package

Hi,

I'm from awphosting (http://www.awphosting.com). I was wondering if anybody is interested in a package with really low priced hosting with the provision that support will be of lower priority than our normal hosting packages.

The pricing will be something to the effect of $1.95->$3.95 per month (pricing not set yet; cheaper for yearly payments). Support response time for 99%+ of support tickets will be under 12-36 hours. In fact, most will be under 12 hours.

Package features will be along the lines of:
50-100 mb
2-3 gig
NO Setup Fees
multiple (unlimited?) FTP
1-5 domains
unlimited subdomains
unlimited parked domains
unlimited domain aliases
10-50 POP accounts
unlimited aliases
unlimited auto responders
PHP4
personal cgi-bin
PERL 5
HSphere control panel
SiteStudio web page maker
OScommerce e-commerce package
frontpage extensions
search engine submit
personal incoming/outgoing mail servers
2 MySQL users
2 MySQL dbs
PHPbb integrated

Control Panel screenshots: http://www.awphosting.com/demos.html

30 day money back guarantee.
Paypal accepted.
No checks or money orders for this special ($1.95 check?! :D )

This package is targeted at those who:
1. do not require much support as they either know what they
are doing
2. just want a place to park domains/get emails, etc.
3. do not have a time critical web site development plan

Support level will be same. For example, if you need help setting up a forum, we'll help you - it will just take us longer to get to you vs. a "regular" client.

Pricing and features are not set at this point. We are still open to suggestions. Post here for the benefit of public viewing.

I believe that about covers it.

Thanks for your time,
Charles

I don't know if you took the time to visit our website or even read my post, but if you did, you would have figured out this is a new plan.

I'm soliciting comments on what users would think of this new package, i.e. who would be interested and how the plan can change to fit people's interests.

Well, I think that it is a good idea to have cheaper prices for more experienced users that don't require much support BUT IMHO you have to make an exception and provide instant support if there is a major problem (ie with MySQL, no FTP etc).

Well, unless we split the accounts on different servers (which I doubt) those problems that plague everyone will, of course, be fixed immediately.

as long as support doesnt take like days or weeks to get back to you.....
