Your web hosting provider?

1 reply • Last post

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 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 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.

Hi 0zas, no need to apologise .. thats what the general chat forum is for! When you said hostrator I assume you actually meant hostgator as they are very well known.

We are hosted with a company called MediaLayer. They have been great to us over the years - if you ever have a question or need support you can email them and they literally answer you within minutes. They are probably small in comparison to hostgator but thats a positive in my opinion because if you are on a shared server then you are not sharing resources with millions of other sites (we have our own server though).

Some hosts offer unlimited disk space because they know the vast majority of sites will never need it. So it is true but you need to consider whether it is actually relevant for your site. Also think about what sort of sites are going to be attracted to services that offer unlimited bandwidth or disk space etc ... probably not the kind that you want to share a server with!
