Hi everyone,
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 ( 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 - 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.

I use I have a very basic website but I've never had any issues and customer service is prompt. Best of all its dirt cheap. When choosing this host I found them as a top rated host on a few different listings. Also I found a fatcow link that offered a significant discount.

Good luck!

I have used Lunarpages for about 8 years now. They are very reliable. I have also heard good things about godaddy. Check their redundancy so if they go down, they can put you on another server without much downtime.

Hm.... for simple web site you could do it with cheap web hosting, and still if there some exceptions you could ask a reliable web hosting provider will gladly respond to your needs and offer some solution in this case is good choice.

Cheap web hosting is never a good idea. You'll share server time and you will have increased downtime. It's the only way to offer cheap web hosting. If you have a business you simply don't want it.

I use three different hosts: GoDaddy for my B & B (happy enough and very inexpensive) Wordpress for m,y candy buffet business (may be rethinking this one) and is the most expensive, but space is unlimited and I use a lot of bandwidth for my cake site.
