    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 (ixwebhosting.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.

    I'm sorry to hear about your problems, but this is not new with shared hosting. I went through it with PDAPhoneHome in the early days.. 7 or 8 years ago. Any of the low cost shared hosting companies are probably going to do this. If they are charging a really low price for a lot of resources, then they are doing it by jamming 500-1000 sites on each server. The vast, vast majority of sites use very little server resource and never have a problem. The way they keep the server performing well for the many, is to kick out the few that actually do have an active site. CPU/Memory utilization and bandwidth are what is going to get you booted, not number of users and disk space. With static sites these are generally never a problem. If you are doing something like a forum that uses MySQL, then a minimal amount of success will have you looking for a new hosting provider. If you have a site like this, then you will probably keep fighting this problem until you move to a dedicated server... which has its own share of issues to contend with. What are you running on the site?

    With my hosting company, :: Pure Web Hosting :: Hosting With Integrity :: Small Business Hosting :: I charge $20/month for 1G... but I don't oversell my servers. You run on a server that has a few dozen accounts, not hundreds or even 1000.
