    Reccomend a Dedicated Web Host Service?

    My host, despite offering "unlimited" storage and bandwith, is threatening to shut down my site for... using too much storage and bandwith. I run a personal webspace, mediawiki with only one user, but have almost _all_ my photographs up online. I don't get too many visitors-- it's mostly up for myself, family, friends.

    I'm looking for a dedicated web host that will handle setup and have storage for at least 500GB-- I'm on shared hosting right now, I'd like something a little faster but otherwise I'm pleased with my current "speed". [EDIT]: I also need something that will keep my domain email going.

    Can anyone reccomend any good services? Ones that have never let you down? Or otherwise comment on the virtues/difficulties of collocation or hosting from home? Google seems to offer more advertisements than anything really useful.

    Much thanks in advance from this web-n00b.

    I've used Bluehost, http://www.bluehost.com for years and very rarely have issues. They specialize in shared hosting but dedicated hosting is also available.

    They have several good packages and tech support 24/7/365 by phone. I don't think they handle setup, you'll have to do that, but they will walk you through domain transfer and anything else you need help with.

    They offer more services than I can use and they have a KB and a forum for p2p help. If you need any further info or theres anything I can help with, let me know.

    Thanks. As far as I can tell though, they just don't do dedicated. :\

    I used Hostmonster, I abuse it as it was the amazon media service that big Video web-sites use. They have lived up to thair claims for the 2.5 years I been abusing it.

    Thanks, but I really can't risk the frustration anymore. I figure it might as well be time to leap into dedicated service. Either that, or hosting from home. It is getting on my nerves so much to deal with these hosting companies... or even the way they adverstise themselves.

    They do have it. I setup a client with it. You just have to call them for it. They don't put it on the front page.

    In any case. Good luck with your search.

    My bad. I'll check them out. Layered tech looks good too!

    What is the difference between normal and dedicated web host, just wondering..?
    You came empty handed, that is how you shall leave. Whatever you claim as yours today, belonged to someone else yesterday, will be someone else's tomorrow.

    Hosting your site on a dedicated web server means you don't share that server with any other site. That leaves you with more control over the hardware and server administration.
