    Need a Server badly.

    Well,I'm currently with ******. My site is soooo slow, and something I get Internal server errors. This has gotten to the point that my site goes into an internal server error atleast every 5 minutes. I talked with them and they said its becuase some PHP scripts not terminating properly, or something. Which I thought of as lies.

    I was told that they sell their accounts so low priced because they oversell the accounts.

    Well I've had enough of this, and want to move on. I have been losing members, and they all complain about this error.

    So if you guys can recommend a few hosts to me that be great. I've been looking at Hostgator and Bluehost, but I've heard bad things about them.

    I need atleast 20 gigs of space, and atleast 300gig bandwith.

    Thanks

    Why do you think your php script is not the problem? Just curious, not accusing.

    Celoso........taking a look at your php script isn't a bad idea. I am not a php programmer but I do know that if there is a code problem it can potentialy can problems with your pages response time.

    Also I am assuming your site is a forum?

    A VPS is like a dedicated server, only a very minimal one.

    You still get root and all that, but it's on a shared machine (lots of smaller servers on a bigger server.)

    Hello, use the host quote feature on this site.

    If your using 20 GB of space and 300 GB of bandwidth you should be on a dedicated server without question. Shared servers are not ment to handle that sort of things.

    Also what is your website, perhaps someone here can try to reproduce the error and offer a solution, but most likely you will have to get a coder to look at it.

    Are you actually using that 300gb worth of bandwidth you want? Or are you really only using 20 - 30 gb?

    Then I would definately recommend a high end VPS or low end dedicated server!

    Yes I agree either a VPS or dedicated server would work for you. Just look around. There are some hosts out there with good deals.

    What do you mean by "wasted" ?

    If you are really using that much of bandwidth (close to 300GB), you might want to consider dedicated or VPS like what the others suggest.

    Hostgator is one of the 2 that you are looking at... so you might have noticed that they have "Semi Dedicated" - it's between shared hosting and dedicated... If you don't wish to go with their dedicated. I am having sites with them now, and personally, I find that their support and uptime is above average. I have never experienced slow server response, error, downtime etc with them.

    If you have high traffic for your site, you could earn advert money to partially or fully cover your hosting fees !

    That's absolutely right - I high trafficked site should earn money, not lose it.

    VPS would be a great solution, But 250GB is rather high. Just make sure you get really good support from whoever you choose!

    Have you considered http://www.servage.net

    Besides the guy who cried about having his illegal MP3's deleted, most of their customers seems to be satisfied, and even with your diskspace/bandwidth use you should not be afraid to break their limits.

    Give 'em a try
