    Looking for a web host, please advice

    Hi, I'm running an IPB 2.3 forum + Drupal on Godaddy, which pretyy much.. suck. I live in Israel and the access to the forum and site is very very lame, people just can't get in.
    Anyway, I decided to change my host to another one, please advice me.


    Thanks ahead!

    What are your needs in space/bandwidth? what's your budget?

    Thank you for your good will
    Up to $10/month, at least 2 gigs of space and about traffic... I have no idea. I have somthing like 100 people a day, this will hopefully get bigger very soon.

    Forgot to mention, I need a 24/7 email support with quick replies, in case I need to contact the support (I sure hope not)

    I'd recommend using either Hawk Host or HostGator. I've had multiple accounts with both companies and rarely experienced problems. Their support staff is very helpful. I'm not sure if Hawk Host offers 24/7 support, but HostGator does for sure.

    Can you please give me a link to sites shared hosted on both hosting companies so I can ping them?
    Thanks

    Did you check with the host the real cause for the slow down of your website? It could be be network related issue at your ISP end. Then the host change will not help.

    I did and they told me everything is fine on their side, but still, some people don't only get a slow loading time but the site just not working. I do think host changing will help because they can at least ENTER sites not hosted on Godaddy.

    With your budget and requirements, I am sure you can get a good deal out of it.
    Try to have a look at downtownhost as well as ihubnet.
    Don't forget to search around for reviews as well.
