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 (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.

You could check out one of the web hosts that I have relied on. They charge $24.95 for the first website and only $5 for each one after that. That is big with me since I have several small businesses that need low hosting costs but all the benefits of a big site. And it helps to be familiar with the cpanel and admins(saves time learning each hosting company's procedures).

Check the "Tips and Tricks" section of this forum. There are two articles on choosing hosting and getting your site started.
The short answer to your queries: No, they cannot offer unlimited hosting bandwidth or disk space. They simply make this claim knowing that most people are lucky to use a fraction of what they purchase in a shared hosting plan. If you read their terms of service, they may disclose this so that you cannot hold it against them if they cancel your service if you actually do exceed an "acceptable" amount of bandwidth and disk space. Try to find a hosting plan that will actually give you what they say they will give you.
Many people are confused about how much bandwidth and disk space they actually need. What type of website will you be running and how much traffic do you expect to have for the first year? Most small businesses are lucky to use 1GB of bandwidth and 3GB of disk space/month. Don't pay for what you will not be using (or evening in some cases what you won't be getting). If you know you will be needing a very large amount of bandwidth and disk space, I recommend that you look into Virtual Private Servers (VPS) or Dedicated Servers.
let me know if I can help answer any other questions,

I have no idea about that site which you specified.Because yet I didn't use it.There are plenty of Web Hosting companies available in online.You need to choose the best one.It is hard to find it.I would suggest some points to select best web hosting provider 1.Search in Google or Yahoo for web hosting search. 2.Select five providers among them. 3.Compare those providers with each other. 4.Read reviews about them and customer rating of the companies. 5.Find out the company existence. 6.Consider their SEO services,plans,features and price. Using these points you can select the best one. I would recommend the site http://www.thewebpole.com/hosting/web-hosting.aspx?ci=1783&prog_id=456994 here you can get web hosting service at low price.I have been using their services for the past one year yet I didn't get any issue related to my hosting.I am happy and also satisfied with my service provider.

Hi friend! My name is Tommy, and I'm a web developer. I would never recommend godaddy or any of the absurdly cheap sites. They are cheap for a reason. I personally use HostGator which has three different options for business websites. My plan runs around $30, but I have never run out of space (truly unlimited), their customer service is outstanding, and they include a multitude of safe guards to keep your site free of malicious nonsense, and make it easy to track stats. If you have any questions, please feel free to email at my email, firstname.lastname@example.org
It all boils down to what type of site you are building that determines your host. I've used HostGator for over 3 years now and honestly cannot think of a single bad thing to say about them. I won't lie, there's a bit of a learning curve with the cpanel, but I would be happy to help you through that if needed.
Everyone I have turned to HostGator loves them. I think it would be your best bet! They also feature monthly payment instead of having to pay for a year or more in advance.
