I am sorry for possible offtopic, but I need your help in find new web hosting provider as soon as possible, because my current host (bluehost.com) is kicking me off, they say 'your account is using a lot server resources', but my website gets only about 200 visitors per day and my disk usage is 1500 MB (maybe they do not like that?)
Anyway, what would be your recommendations for getting reliable web hosting? Where are you hosting your websites? Are you happy with your providers?
I am now checking http://www.hosting24.com/ - offer looks very nice, but is it real that they can provide unlimited disk space?
I have contacted them about this question and they say something that "These days 500GB disk drive costs only $30 per month, so if some day we will run out of disk space we will simply add new 500GB disk drive with almost zero costs and you can continue uploading without any problems".
What do you think about it? Maybe things have changed in last 4 years? With my current provider I get only 2GB of disk space for $10 per month..
Any ideas and suggestions are much appreciated.
Well if they are saying that your account is using a lot of server resources, then I will consider looking for dedicated hosting, because my guess is that you are in a shared hosting. here is a link that should give you at least info about the top 30 web hosting companies out there, check it out and good luck.
The things ar really changed in 4 years. In todays situation the offer seems valid.
If your asking my opionion. Get the 2nd or 3rd plan at:
No! No! No! I don't often disagree with you, Thranax, but you only have to Google "Nodaddy" to find thousands of people really, really unhappy with Godaddy. Great for buying cheap domain names but not for hosting.
I'm with Hostgator and very happy, but they've been known to kick people off, too.
Yes, of course it's true that you can get unlimited disk space and bandwidth for $4.95 a month.
(And don't you think that companies like google are really stupid spending many, many millions of dollars on buying all those computers and bandwidth, when all they really need to do is get one of these web hosting plans)
Have a look at the following hubs, where I have discussed many issues involved with hosting.
As you have discovered, web hosts who provide "unlimited" anything have a very special definition of "unlimited".
I'd STRONGLY suggest that you check out the web hosting advice forum mentioned in my unlimited hub before signing up with a web hosting company. Very often the experiences of the users is WAY different than what's promised in the marketing blurb.
Here's a tip - stay away from companies who spend a lot of money on pretty girls, affiliate commissions, and extensive marketing campaigns.
And if you are approaching this with the mindset of comparing all the advertised deals with the view of getting as much as possible for as little money as possible, you're bound to be disappointed again.
Definately Lithium Hosting - highly reccomended:
Not sure haven't used them but a good friend of mine with multiple websites rates them pretty highly.
One.com are good in the sense that you only have to pay for the domain and get an adwords voucher but I've had a few cases where they have taken a while to activate my FTP.. and then I tried to purchase one about accepting credit cards and they said I couldn't have it without proof of Identity and business and they still charged my credit card..had to chase them for a week for the refund.
I had my website too and i use justhost.com. Personally i would recommend you to look at the plans and pricing. My second recommendation would be godaddy.

I have found a couple of domains available I would really like to purchase and see that Domain.Com also has web hosting. It looks pretty good, but...I am not savvy in what all they list means.Am hoping someone here on Hubpages is using their hosting services or has and could be helpful.
