While I am impressed by the price, having checked for some catches like
expensive domain registration, I must point out the following:

 - Site was first observed in March 2003
 - Site traffic appears to be low (5 millionth+ according to Netcraft, not
known to Alexa)

 - Risk rating is 1/10.

 - Many domains are registered with the host. I can see at least 1000 of

In summary, there are a few red flags, but also some encouraging figures. Be
cautious because moving from one host to another is an
effort/time-consuming process.
