    Angry Urgent! Recommendation needed to find a new host

    Hi,

    I am running a site with 50GB/month bandwidth and 1GB space and Hostgator blocked my site today.

    They said that the site exceeded the maximum limit of simultaneous process.

    The site is not using any database but generate about 2.5 million pageviews/month.

    I have been paying $9.95/month to Hostgator and need to find a host ASAP with compatible price range.

    Any recommendation would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Hyo

    If you are looking for an unmanaged vps provider with great performance, uptime and reliability, try ramnode.

    I tried many managed solutions earlier, but not satisfied and started managing on my own all my servers. No recommendations for managed providers.

    But yea I used to work for hostgator, and on shared you only get 20 conceurrent processes, question cause I seen this ALL the time. Are you on a Mac or using Apples email program? Cause that would always kick people into suspension cause the way it idles it creates a new process every 15 mins or how ever long when it would check the mail again.

    It looks that ramnode might be a good solution.
    There are many plans. Which one do you recommend?

    If Hyo is using a shared hosting service, then I am not sure it is appropriate to recommend an unmanaged VPS unless he knows how to manage one. We all know that managing a VPS is a complex, challenging task for a beginner. VPSs are difficult to maintain and secure without considerable experience.

    My guess is that he needs another shared hosting service. (He might possibly consider a managed VPS as an alternative.) I wonder if he is posting in the correct forum. If Hyo is looking for another shared hosting service, I have had good experiences with Arvixe.com. Their support has been helpful and responsive, and they include cPanel to make it easy.

    Hyo:
    1. Do you know how to manage a VPS? (If you are not sure, then the answer is "No.")
    2. Are you looking for another shared hosting service, an unmanaged VPS, or a managed VPS?

    1. The answer is no.
    2. I got tired of shared hosting services.
    If I can be helped in initial transfer and setting, then I want
    to try out the unmanaged vps. I have some unix background.
    If it is too complex to manage, then managed vps might be an
    option too.

    If you are moving from a shared hosting to a VPS you will probably need a control panel as moving and managing an unmanaged VPS without a control panel by your self can be tricky.

    You can contact hosting company regarding this. Generally un-managed VPS comes with only OS installed. You need to install and configure everything.

    Try KnownHost - that was easy.

    A bit more than your budget, but the peace of mind is worth it.

    It is not the mail program since I am using the default mail system.

    I need to correct the bandwidth/month which is found to be 244 GB/month (November data).

    And I guess it will raise more.
    You definetely need something more than shared hosting with such a traffic, semi-dedicated or dedicated server.
    And you have to increase your budget.

    Have you checked your cPanel bandwidth usage chart. That may give you some idea where most bandwidth is used.

    cPanel >> Logs >> Bandwidth

    That is where I got 243 GB/November bandwidth.
    99.9% is from http usage and 0.1% from FTP.

    That means you are getting huge traffic. Have you checked the visitors stat of your website of past 3-4 months??

    If its growing at a good speed, you should consider a VPS.

    Yes, it is growing rapidly. I think I have never touched cPanel after the initial setup.

    Also I think I need a managed VPS instead of unmanaged one.

    Yes, its good to get managed VPS if you are newbie for server related stuff.

    If you want to learn basic things related to VPS management, get a cheap VPS and start playing with it.

    I beg to differ. 244GB isn't a lot of bandwidth. I have a site sitting idle, it alone uses more than 350GB bandwidth a month & its neither a picture or a video site to eat up bandwidth.

    Coming back to you OP, have you considered budget at first before hunting for hosts ?

    Since u don't have any knowledge on how to manage VPS, I would recommend you to get managed hosting for at least couple of months. If possible after successfully migrating sites, just try to get unmanaged VPS & try playing on it. May be you can switch to an unmanaged host down the line, if there's a need for it.

    I would also suggest you to contact hosts directly if you are unsure how much resources you would be utilizing. Best way to go would be Cloud Hosting, as you can increase specs on the fly.

    My recommendations for managed VPS - wiredtree, servint, knownhost, futurehosting, bigbrainglobal, Unixy

    Unmanaged host - Ramnode, Buyvm, HudsonValleyHost, digitalocean

    I haven't used cloud hosting first hand, so I can't recommend any directly.

    Sounds like a managed VPS or Dedicated Server would be more appropriate - you'll want a budget at least 10 times the current payment as a starting point...

    It is a lot for most shared hosting plans. And as said previously, it will raise a lot if moving to a decent service.

    I've already tried ramnode but I was at loss.

    There is no documentation to follow and tech support was saying to go to IRC channel to get a help. All I was asking there is I need a getting-started guide. And I didn't get any help from IRC either. Ramnode is not for VPS newbie.

    That is called un-managed VPS.
    With un-managed VPS, you get only OS installed and you have install / configure rest things without help of your hosting provider.

    Right, our TOS is very clear who our VPSs are intended for:

    "RamNode VPSs are unmanaged. RamNode VPSs are designed for web hosts, advanced Linux administrators, and experienced webmasters. In order to successfully manage our VPSs, the client should be familiar with Linux operating systems, tools, and services."

    As I said in your ticket, your best bet is a managed VPS at this time.

    I tried RamNode because ExpertWebHostNET strongly recommended to me.
    He even said that no recommendations for managed providers.

    He might be right if there is a step-by-step documentation for me to follow through.
    When I migrated to Hostgator from other host, I touched cPanel at the intial setup time.
    I've hardly touched cPanel afterward.
