Please help me in choosing web hosting


Recommended Posts

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.

Don't ever buy hosting form a company that says unlimited anything. Its a scam. There is no way they can provide unlimited of any service, unmetered is a better term but for $4.95 a month its not happening.

Just read this from there site

Unlimited data transfer becomes normal these days too. Our internet service provider is giving us dedicated and unmetered 10 mpbs line on each server, so we can offer unlimited bandwidth for you too! Please also note that all files you make available for download must be legal too and you must have full permissions to distribute them.

They say unmetered for them, but unlimited for you, its a total scam. A server with a 10mbps connection can only push 3300GB of transfer a month, thats far from unlimited. And since its shared hosting you know they are going to load these boxes up with 100's of domains so they can make a profit. They are paying $100 a month for that 10mbps unmetered connection + there server cost I will say around $250 a month. At $4.95 a month they have to sell 71 accounts to make a profit on the server, So they are going to stick 71 people on a 10mbps minimum, if yo do the math thats only 140kbps per client at max usage, hardly unlimited, thats actually quite pathetic.
