    hi all,i am currently building a rather large equestrian infomation site. i'd like it to have a linked forum and classifieds section too. i was with vodahost but have had a shocking experience in their forum support which is just not acceptable.so i need to move my sites from them to another hoster. the problem i am having is that there are plenty advertising unlimited this that and the other, but then people complaining that their sites and been suspended or banned for too much use. i'm not quite sure how a company gets away with doing that when they advertise one thing but then add limits. anyway, i need a hosting company that can cope with what my sites may use traffic use. i am on a limited budget so can't afford silly sums of money. i know that some offer really good deals for yearly+ prepayment but i'm not going to be able to afford a large lump sum....i've been paying 9.95dollars a month on a month by month payment because it has meant i can do more with buying domains and such.as i also need to buy a paid classifieds script my budget is rather poor.so who do you think is best please? i'm in the uk and have done lots of looking but i'm just not sure. i need an excellent support and guarenteed uptime. also, if it has to be a yearly+ plan then i must be able to get my money back if they turn out to be not sticking to their side of things.if anyone also can recommend a very resonable paid classifieds script that allows easy customisation by a novice i'd be greatful for that too.thanks in advance.suneanarab

    Avoid unlimited hosts. They will give you problems in the future with tight resource constraints. Almost any host should be able to meet your needs. Does not sound like your site requires too much for a shared host.

    I suggest you to choose the host that suits your needs and provides constant and uninterrupted services and support.
    Hostforweb.com will be reasonable choice for getting cheap hosting deals.
    The code [winter] will save 20% off the price for you.

    Yearly plans have the disadvantage that you can't change once you sign the contract. Go for the monthly plan which gives you freedom to turn back. No problem if they offer moneyback guarantee, but I think you may need to answer lot of their questions to get a full refund. Why don't you check out the web host shown in my signature. It meets all your expectation. It has no contracts, only monthly plans with 30 day money back guarantee. 5$ per month is the lowest price, the highest is 10$/mo. If you look at the right corner you will see live chat option, they may be available or not.

    With the right web hosting company, your business web site can be much easier than you think. There are so many web based design tools and marketing tools included in web hosting packages, that you really don't need to know much about html, programming, or otherwise.

    If you are still in search of reliable web host, can highly recommend you to have a look at cheap hosting deals offered by GlowHost.com
    Many of my clients have been using their hosting services for a long time.
    Network uptime is great, customer support is helpful and pricing is reasonable.

    Reliable long term hosting providers are generally very affordable. 24/7 technical support is almost a necessity for good provider at this time. After you have narrowed your list you may want to read a few reviews before you make your decisions. Other's opinions of experiences with a particular host can be a very reliable source of information.

    I suggets you dedicated server. If you have problem with budget, consider cheap dedicated server.
    But never choose "unlimited offers". There no term unlimited. Your site will share resources with
    other clients of hosting company in case of VPS\Cloud.

    So, consider cheap dedicated server for start, than you may upgrade to more power server.
    But all resources of server and full access with be yours.
