    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 http://www.hosting24.com/ - 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've been using SiteGround for a number of years now.

    webduderick put me on to it when I gave up the host I had been using for the same problems you are having.

    Tried a number of free hosters - garbage

    Whole lot more than you're getting for less.

    I use nearlyfreespeech.net . You have to be a little more tech-savvy than a normal host, but you only pay for what you use. In my case, instead of $8/month at my old host, I was paying about $0.04 per month. I recently added MySQL to the account and now I pay about $0.35 per month. Yes, 35 cents.

    Granted, I am very low traffic and don't use much space. But their rates are very reasonable. Much lower than any other host I've found.
