Your web hosting provider?

Postby 0zas on Mon Aug 30, 2010 8:31 am

I apologize for the possible off-topic. Guys, could you tell me which web hosting company you are using at the moment? I have a problem because my current web hosting company hostrator.com is kicking me off. They say that our website is using too many server resources. But our website only gets 300 visitors per day..

Anyway, what would be your recommendations? Are you happy with your web hosting providers?

I am checking at the moment, but is it real that they can provide unlimited disk space?
I have contacted them and they say something like "1000GB disk drive costs only $30 per month, so if some day we will start running out of disk space we will simply add a new 1000GB drive so can continue uploading..".

What do you think about it? Any ideas and web hosting company name suggestions are much appreciated.

I use 1and1. I'm not a techy when it comes to host sites but it has served me well over the years and only goes offline maybe one day a year. Their technical support has also been useful as in I write exactly what happened and pose them loads of questions that goes on in my head and they quickly understand and reply back with whether they agree.

I use Bluehost, While they dont give you the freedom of say SliceHost.
But they have "soft caps" and wont cut ya off right away and they also have unlimited space and bandwidth.
(They will ask if you start to have high traffic.)

Yeah, most the time bots advertise. Though, I've heard some are known to post friendly generic posts at first, so people are more likely to click on the links it will post later.
