Please help me in choosing web hosting

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 Hosting24.com - First Class Web Hosting Services - 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.

Are your pages mostly PHP? Keep in mind it could also be CPU...

I like Web Hosting by DreamHost Web Hosting: Web Sites, Domain Registration, WordPress, Ruby on Rails, all on Debian Linux! personally (promo code "MALIXU" for $50 off first year's hosting; yes that gives me free hosting too, but if I didn't like them it wouldn't really help would it). They're cheap & cheerful, but for a cheap & cheerful supplier they're fairly stable and fairly fast (and I've seen more expensive places that are slower and less reliable).

Hope that helps!

Re: Please help me in choosing web hosting

Hi

I use two web hosting services, one in Australia and one in USA. The Australian one is Netregistry, I have two clients hosted here, more expensive than the cheaper options, but if you are looking for bandwidth, superb technical support and local hosting this is one I'd recommend. The other one I use is Allwebco in USA, US$9.95 a month (if you pay up front for 12 months you get a month free). I have 5 clients with sites hosted on Allwebco and for last 4 years have found them excellent. Great support despite the distance.

I am not sure about others but FatCow and HostGator is the best one among all hostings.

I used to be a web developer.

GoDaddy, DreamHost, BlueHost, etc. are pretty noob friendly hosts. They aren't worth the money you pay for what they offer though. Just marketing shams like 99% of every ____trade retail broker is. Many have tight bandwidth caps they don't tell you about and don't allow you to fully edit things to way you want.


Linode offers cheap customizable virtual cloud servers on Linux operating systems and top notch support.. $10/month would get you 24GB of SSD storage, and 2TB of data transfer per month. DigitalOcean is also pretty cheap. Practically the same as Linode but you get 30GB in storage.

If you want to be masterrace, sign up for RackSpace. They are dedicated servers. Just about every Fortune 500 company you know of hosts their websites with them. But they are pretty expensive with the cheapest plan being $50/month. They also don't have many rules and don't terminate your service for no reason. Hint why just about every porn site is hosted through them.

AWS is the solution

You may try Amazon Web Services. They had a trial offer for a month or so & then charges move up as per use.

I would Recommend Siteground. I have been a premium user for over a decade. I have not faced any downtime of our Website till date. Even if you have any issue, they are always there to help you. Siteground really helped us to increase our business growth. It saved me a lot of money and time. From my experience, I’m suggesting you to go with http://www.sitegroundwebhostingreviews.com/ after reading some reviews about them. Also, this time they offer some amazing deals.
