    Web Hosting suggestions?

    So, my server account has been suspended twice in the last two months. The first time was for using too much CPU usage on the shared server and then just today for too much mySQL load (RAM usage).

    Apparently, I would have to upgrade TWO levels of packages right now in order to not push those limits again, which would basically be an upgrade from what I am paying now by 450% per year.

    I checked out Hostgator and they are far more expensive than upgrading with my current company to the 2GB of RAM VPS (I am currently on a shared server where I am allotted 1GB of RAM, which I have only gone over once), so I think that for now that is my target.

    I've always had fine experiences with HostGator. User friendly.

    For dedicated servers I've used SoftLayer in the past, and they did a good job.

    Without getting into details of what your site is doing, what are you paying now and what are the target specs for what you need going forward?

    I found a place. We will see. I only signed up for 6 months to give it a go. Hostgator is about 250% of what I wound up paying for the same specs on a VPS.
