Comparing Rates: Web Hosting Company

I host a portfolio site and a few other important business sites and I'm looking for a new host.

I'm currently using HostGator, and to renew for 3 years its $8 a month and I gotta pay it all upfront. I used Made2Own in the past, but after the servers getting hacked and such I've migrated away.

Any recommendations for a cheap solution, I'm probably only pulling like 400 hits a day across all the sites I host.

I've been using ASmallOrange.com for going on a year now and I've been happy. For $5 a month I get 400mb and 10gb of transfer, which is more than enough for my sites that also get no traffic. If I paid up front for a year it'd drop to $4.17 a month.

If I weren't on my current host, I would probably go with ASO as a reliable hoster.

ASO was also recently hacked by a disgruntled employee or someone leaving their home pc logged into the main web hosting servers or whatever.

So cross that off your list if you've crossed m2o off.

cheap + important business sites = not going to happen.
If you want reliability, security, and customer service, you have to pay a bit for it.

dreamhost seems reliable enough for most users but their storing passwords in plaintext irks me to no end.

at the price point you want, everyone you look at is going to have had issues. The thing you need to identify is how those issues are handled when they come up.

The other thing to keep in mind, is this is not going to provide 99.999% uptime, or anywhere close, so bitching when it's down for a few hours is not a proper response.

I'm now paying $3.50 a month for unlimited hosting. If it goes down, I don't give a shit. I'm using it to host files I put on forums. It doesn't rile my cheeks at all if its shitty service. I just need a ton of space somewhere for me to host my files.
