Default What hosting company do you recommend me?

Hello. I am looking for a hosting company for my site.
Right now I have about 60000 hits/day and 25 GB
transfer/month. The company I am using tell they
offer unlimited badwidth for virtual hosting, but only
if you don't have more than 120000 hits a day.

I need about 250 MB, CGI and telnet (and stats
logs if possible), no MySQL or PHP.

I have seen some companies that offer unlimited
bandwidth and number of hits, webhosting.com
for example. Is this true?

Could anyone indicate me a good choice? In a few
time I could go over the 120000 hits/day.

Thanks.

No, this is impossible to have and companies who say this are blatantly lying. E-mail them and ask them about it, they will not say it is unlimited. I would say away from such companies because if they are lying about their plans upfront, who knows what they will lie about next?

Try visiting www.webhostingtalk.com . The people there review the various companies that they host on through a discussion board . Pretty informative .

xotrm welcome to the forum

by the way, there is no such thing as unlimited transfer or bandwidth ... once you hit the limit, your site will be terminated for "using too much resources" if you dont use too much cgi, i think you can consider tera-byte.com.

yup yup tera-byte used to have frequent down time and users from some countries can't reach the server, however i think they must have fixed it as i have no downtime (except for upgrading, which have been informed earlier) for 2 months.

I've been with 4webspace.com (owned by Tera-Byte) for 6 months. They did have a network-wide downtime of about 8 hours in the beginning due to faulty core router, but now it is all smooth and nice and my dedicated server didn't have a minute of downtime due to the network issues in the past several months. I'm very happy with them.
