pk,

I think it would help all of us if you could please tell us your requirements. Their are thousands of hosts and one size rarely fits all http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif

Tell us:

Your budget
Bandwidth requirements
Storage requirements
Do you need CGI, Perl, MySQL, PHP, Telnet
Future plans

The answers to these questions will get us started.

Notibrian, I would not recommend Forsite if you plan to run a website which may use a large amount of bandwidth. I tried to host a site with them but they claimed my site used so much bandwidth that it crashed their server.

They told me I had to upgrade to an expensive dedicated server. I had a very poor experience with them.

This is another company which supposedly offers unlimited data transfer/ bandwidth but when it comes down to it they will find a way get rid of your site. Burlee Networks did something similar to me.

PK - I don't have any suggestions for you. I would be surprised if you could find a reliable host which can provide everything you want for that price.

forsite.com is another one which is almost the same as tera-byte.com. however, you may find that the price is a little more expensive and the storage is a little less compare to tera-byte.

anyway, even though i never use tera-byte before(going to with my new site http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif), but i think it has the best offer around!!!

Tim - GX Hosting (http://www.gxhosting.com) is out of business. Not gonna say anymore about that one...a simple search at http://www.hostsearch.com will let you know what I mean.

PK - You made a good choice. http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif

For anyone else looking:

1) HostRocket http://www.hostrocket.com - They will give you 200MB, 10GB transfer for $9.95. They are Alabanza hosted, although I believe they have some VDI servers as well. Not sure on that one. At times, their support can be slow, but they do have AIM, trouble tickets, email and forum support.

2) Tera-Byte http://www.tera-byte.com - they own their own NOC center, have excellent support. They have RAQ servers, with excellent uptime. For $19.95 you would get 150 MB, 30 GB.

3) FutureQuest http://www.futurequest.net is a excellent company, which I would recommend, but it is not cheap.

Hope that helps. Good luck!

Gallery, I nearly missed your question. I guess I was using about 10 gig/month when I was with Forsite.

What really annoyed me about my experience with Forsite was that I don't believe they were very honest. They claimed my site was using so much cpu time that it crashed their server - my site was plain, static html. My site was down for a couple of days - I had to call and email them to try and find out what was going on. That was when they told me to upgrade to a dedicated server. All this from a company that claimed to offer unlimited bandwidth.

I feel better now that I have got that off my chest....

Sdarken,

This is strange as I have myself several accounts (silver) with forsite.

One of my forsite accounts (6 months old) used 16 gigs last month and around 5.000 visitors daily + cgi scripts.

I never had the slightest problem with my accounts.

Gallery, you must have some kind of golden touch.

You host successfully with DigiWeb...but my site (which uses less bandwidth than yours) was always down when I hosted with them. (Though maybe that's because I never displayed any of their buttons.)

Now you seem to be doing fine with Forsite, while Sdarken has had nothing but trouble.

I'm at a loss.

I'm still looking for cheap mega-bandwidth, which seems impossible unless I go dedicated.

Care to share which other hosts you are now using? (Though they'll probably not work for me, either!)

Regards,

I do not know if I'm lucky or not but so far so good :-)

I have to say that digiweb is better and better. The reliability is increasing.

As I rule I try to limit my traffic to max 10.000 visitors daily to pics4fun and to max 5.000 for my other sites.

If I have a site that goes above 5.000 visitors daily then it is time to build a new one.

This way the risk and bandwidth are splitted amongst several web sites.
