findU is a different beast. At those prices, your web site is one of  
many hosted on a single machine. findU runs on a server that costs  
about $7k, and the database load fully monopolizes that machine at  
peak times. $15 a month would not even cover the electricity the  
server uses, then there are the capital and bandwidth costs.
