What's your web hosting provider?

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.

If you plan on being here a while and doing well in this business then you need services that are reliable. Remember, for every second your hosting service is down, you could be losing potential sales. This gets more important over time.

Most people use HostGator because they are one of the most reliable ones and their customer service is great. If you want to host multiple websites then you'll need the "Baby Plan" which is only $7.95 per month.

But $30 per month is a bit high and I doubt you'll be using anywhere near 1000GB anytime soon.

Cheers,

It's not really the number of visitors you're getting each day. If you've got a really big video or something and they're all watching that, it's pretty hard on the server.

And disk space isn't your issue. It's bandwidth, more likely. And even if they say "HUUUUGE bandwidth, unlimited bandwidth!" etc, they probably don't mean it. They're just saying it because most people won't use that much, but it sounds really good. And they say "fair use policy applies" which means they'll kick off anyone who uses more than everyone else :)

Interesting article here: Not saying I recommend the host, but the read is good:
