    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 http://www.hosting24.com/ 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.

    @Ozas: Couple of things to consider:

    1) You should probably avoid hosts that offer "unlimited" anything as this is red flag that they are most likely overloading users onto shared servers. That being said, 1TB @ $30/mo is certainly not unlimited so not sure the disconnect in the language there.

    2) With your existing host, was the issue drive space (how much are you using?) or bandwidth (how much are you using?) or processing? With 300 visitors a day, assuming they are spread out and not concurrent, that should be a fairly low impact. What was their exact complaint?

    I have been using MDD Hosting and have been very happy with the service and support they provide.

    HostGator.com - a lot of my clients and people on the board here are using it, and swear by it... plus the ability to host multiple sites on a single account for less than $10/month with an amazing customer support - you can't go wrong... ;)

    Hello
    Web hosting can be a significant expense for anyone. When you are looking for Web hosting online there are so many to choose from that it can be an overwhelming task to try to tone it down to a handful to consider. Did you know that there is some Web hosting provider.
    Thanks!

    I saw a few very good web hosting providers mentioned on the thread. However most well-established hosting companies can provide reliable service. So the best consumers would do is to prepare a list of requirements and to compare web hosts based on their own needs. Otherwise the software platform the quality of the data center and network are very important.

    Liquid Web

    We have been with Liquid Web for around 6 years now. May not be the cheapest, I haven't checked, but service is great.

    First shared then VPS now dedicated & VPS. Couple of times I changed server files (and broke website), phoned their support and they had me back working in record time.

    Unlimited hosting in today's market isn't a bad thing like so many claim. hard drive sizes have increased alot over the past few years, so providing the space isn't the issue. The issue is hosts that overload their servers with too many clients per machine, trying to maximize revenues per server rather than caring about speed and performance. This is why we host at USA Domains (usadomains.com) because they limit the number of clients per server.

    For cheap, your first site hosting Hostgator.
    For multi sites, or sites that need a lot more resources, you'll need a VPN or dedicated- Servint.

    WiredTree.com - I haven't had a more reliable hosting in the 12 years of me dealing with hosting companies... been with WiredTree on their VPS and now on Hybrid servers and I kid you not, their uptime for at least the last year has been 100%. And I have pingdom logs to prove it. And their customer service is one of the best in the world - fully managed hosting and any issue you have will be taken care of within minutes. I would've had quite a few sleepless nights if it wasn't for these guys... I could not recommend them highly enough.
