Your web hosting provider?

8 years 5 months ago #1529 by 0zas
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 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.

Can you show us your website? Host Gator is respected hosting provider, but if you are on shared host, you can't expect that anyone will allow you to use too much server resources. No matter how many visitors you have, maybe software on your site is not configured well or too heavy.

You may consider hosts from: www.bestofjoomla.com/component/option,co...lahosting/Itemid,97/

If your site is really too heavy, you must buy VPS or dedicated server.

Unlimited disk space or bandwidth is only for marketing purposes. If your website uses too much server's processor resources, or too much RAM memory, every hosting provider will block it.

At the same time, if you have VPS or dedicated server with less resources (CPU and RAM) that you need, nobody will block your account, but your website will work slower for your visitors, or maybe restart itself often, as if you run too heavy software on an old home computer.

Hosting talk was always interesting to me... ;)

I have been using Blue Host for quite some time. I have unlimited storage and bandwidth that allows me to place hundreds of videos on. Their tech support is great and is free 24/7/365. I switched from 1and1 years ago because I was speaking to a foreigner that read from a written script, not talking to me. If you want a support department that is based in the USA, choose Blue Host.

So far I have about fourteen domains that I work on periodically with hundreds of email addresses assigned to my customers and their employees.

Judge for yourself, you won't be dissapointed.

Just my opinion.

Take Care,
