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 ( 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 [link deleted by mod] - 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.

My vote is for dreamhost. I tried the budget route, but they sold out and the new owners sold my contact info for cash. I was spam-free until then. :( Dreamhost has generous offerings, decent pricing, and is nearly bulletproof in my experience.

We use 1and1 (Web Hosting Services and Domain Name Registration : 1&1 Internet Inc.). Have used them for the past ~6 years without any problems.

This thread SURE looks like spam to me!

First time poster asks about web hosting - and then posts a link to his favourite prospective company - on an efficiency forum?

Deleting that link. :P Banning the poster.

No biggie. Here, have a chuckle: I just googled a sentence in his post and it came up on a bunch of forums.

current host ( is kicking me off - Google Search
