    I need advice to find a new shared hosting

    Hello. I need change my hosting web and i need a piece of advice.

    Currently my website consumes 30 GB of bandwidth per month and i need 500MB of disk space.

    I need to any MySQL database becouse the website is a wordpress, and is importante that the response time of the servers be fast.

    I would like 99.9% guaranteed uptime, and cPanel.

    Most siteweb users are Spanish and South American.

    Thank you.

    Everyone has a different definition of "little".

    What is your budget? Which currency? Is that per month or per year?
    What's your budget?

    Seriously, what's your budget?

    Most offer shared with speedy connecitons, however that is also tied to factors of where they are located, in relation to you and your visitors.

    Quick tips:
    Avoid Unlimited
    Avoid long term payments (i.e. 1, 2 or 3 year.
    Stick with monthly to start, heck even in the long run.

    To keep your sites speedy, naturally you will want to find a provider with reliable and powerful hardware. Not to mention properly configured, so ask them questions about what they use and how they use it.

    Providers in the North America regions would probably be a good fit for the reliability, price and performance you are looking for. Expect a price range anywhere from USD $5-$10/mo for your space/bandwidth requirements.

    Hi Ihcan,

    Perhaps you could tell a little bit bout your budget. by saying little does not define how much.
    everyone has different definition of "little".

    There a lot of hosting provider out there that offer web hosting at an affordable price.

    without knowing your budget, it would be pretty hard for us to recommend any web hosters though

    Its irrelevant, i prefer the host have a good service for the siteweb.(bandwidth,suport, ping, response time, 99.9% guaranteed uptime, etc). Thanks.

    The offer is good but says unlimited. I prefer know when i must update the plan when the siteweb is near of the limit of bandwidth. Thanks.

    Hello Ihcan, i had very similar requirements and budget as you. I didn't want massive unlimited plans, but i wanted faster page loads for my MySql site, good support and a reputable company for around $80 a year.

    I made a shortlist of 8 hosts, and chose DTH you can see my post here: http://www.webhostingtalk.com/showthread.php?t=892791

    They seem to fit your requirements exactly also.

    I second the downtownhost recommendation. I would also suggest looking in to HawkHost.

    Good luck!

    It is indeed. From the hosts you mentioned above, I can only make a comparison with Hostgator, and applications there are running 3+ times faster. The difference will be the more noticeable the more elaborate and sophisticate the site, and the higher the amount of information per page.

    The good news is that Fatcow is the slowest among the hosts I've used, so I guess there are some chances that most hosts out there are simply better than them in that sense.

    What kind of numbers would make you happy?

    @db09 thaks for your advice.

    @idcdc Thanks, for you the best choice of the list would be Hostgator?, please if you know any better please recommend me .

    @bentink I read in webhostingtalk any lament about it.

    @collabora I would like less than 560 milliseconds maximum or similar(this concerns me), 560 was the maximum before.
    Thanks.

    Most importantly at this moment you need to know that no one here knows how fast your page will load at any host. Thus all their recommendations are moot.

    Personally I think you are going to a lot of trouble to shave off a few milliseconds of page loading time. Perhaps you can link us to the page you are testing and we can judge if 1/2 second is so terrible.

    The only company I have had good hosting experience is pinellashosting.com. It is not in your list, this is rater addon to it as you have requested. They worth the money I pay and once I switched to them I haven't had any serious problem.

    Sure, sending you a PM now. The site uses Wordpress, plus has a vBulletin forum and vBSEO with a lot of rewrite rules so it should give you a good idea if it's suitable for you.

    I have no personal hosting experience with the other hosts you mentioned (Hostingzoom, Midphase, Webhostingpad, Downtownhost), so I cannot make a comparison.

    In terms of server performance, Hostpapa and Lunarpages are two hosts that in my experience are slightly better than Hostgator. But uptime is a real letdown with them, unfortunately, so, overall, they don't get the crown IMHO.

    Be wary of billing traps w/ Webhostingpad!!

    Please know that webhostingpad attempts to renew their accounts automatically even when the package is prepaid. If the client chooses not to renew then webhostingpad adds a single line in an email stating that they will send the the client to collections for not renewing or cancelling officially in writing. This means the agreed upon contract duration is worthless.

    I have hosting accounts with both Hostgator and JaguarPC and am happy with both. You will get closer to 'unlimited' resources with Jaguar, and they are very responsive..but there is no live support..only support tickets.

    one of the reasons i like hostgator is because they have 24-7 live support via IM and phone.

    Unfortunately, when you look for providers that allow overselling, they frequently have other problems due to overcrowding.
