I need a web hosting for my portfolio

    Hi there,
    SEMrush
    I had search and search and search(lol) the hosting but still cant make my mind, currently host my site with a free hosting(before this I use some hosting under a reseller -which is a bargain deal I believe at that time). However after 2 or 3 months, my account have been suspended and there you go... I cant have refund, cant get compensation, cant get my file-since I need to deal it with the reseller which dont know where he go lol and a lot of cant :p)

    So after tired searching, decided to ask you guys what is a good web host to host for my portfolio site.

    What I need:

    disk space: around 100mb-1gb(as right now 100mb is okay since my site have been coded in PHP rather than CMS or etc)
    bandwidth: not quite sure but my site are not get so much attention
    MYSQL-required
    EMAIL: unlimited
    auto installer such as fantastico is required eventhought I not gonna use it at first but will toy around with it in future.
    the other thing dont know much.

    There should be plenty of hosts that offer this, so I would try to find the one with the best support and the best price.

    Sometimes,not the reseller fault totally.
    Its the upstream fault,they suspended the account due to several reason mainly abuse,spam.
    Try hostgator.

    I believe you will be able to get their information by doing the search for their domain name.

    Phew... cant updated with the hosting(hostgator) coz its already a month since the 1st day I buy it. However, I did notice their support is excellence(via online chat). I had contacting them via online chat at their website several times and didnt take too long before someone answering it...

    As for the server cant comment anything coz I didnt test it lol
