View Full Version : 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 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.

I have never used hosting24 so I am not sure if they are a reputable host or not... the deal sounds very good tho. Try googling them to see if there are any complaints you would want to be aware of.

When I had hosting, I used jaguarpc (http://www.jaguarpc.com). I found their service was exceptional, and reasonably priced. They also offer unlimited space, 50GB at a time. Just add more for free when you reach 80% capacity. A few friends are using the service and they say it is the best they have used in a long time. My friend Amanda used to have a daily complaint with her webhost, and since she swithced to jaguarpc a couple years ago, I haven't heard a peep from her.

I hope this helps.

We used to use Cihost. I don't know much about them, but it was a good rate and fairly reasonable to work with. I use GoDaddy for my domain, but they don't host. They do have pretty good rates for hosting though. They are really great and I've heard a lot of great things about them from friends who do use them.

I'm very happy with 1and1 internet service: www.1and1.com. They are reasonable, and you can have them transfer your existing domain name. They have several levels of web building assistance. Right now, I'm working on www.letsuesayit.com, and I have done www.cagdgolf.org. Granted, neither of these sites is a "marketplace", but 1and1 handles that, too.

When I needed help recently, the folks at their 800 number answered pretty quickly, and the service rep talked me through things.

Hope it all works for you,
