hosting recommendations

Guys, and gals, any recommendations on hosting? I use fast hosts and the DB payments seem really high. im having issues with my self hosting and i think its because i have maxed my 300MB DB and they want another 25 pa to increase by 150MB who does everyone else use and what are the costs? how big is the Db that you get? Thanks Steve

Most people here use HostGator.. or Blue Host I believe.. In the UK I use https://www.vidahost.com and its pretty cheap in my opinion and I have never had a problem in general with hosting there. I don't run the self hosted there but I'm sure it shouldnt be an issue. I've used complex scripts at times without any issues or asking for permissions for certain processes.

I'm primarily on hostgator for all of my sites, including my BT self hosted. Network Solutions still has a couple, but I'm migrating, and will let that contract die... Cheers! -- Smug

From all I've tested, siteground is by far the best. And support is awesome. At anytime, It never took more the 15m to get a reply for any Issue I had. I've tested Lunarpages, Hostgator, Arvixe and Siteground. Cheers.
