Another one looking for a host!

  harristweed 14:13 10 Mar 2007

I normally use a couple of web hosts from whom I’ve had good service and support. I now have an estate agent customer that takes videos the properties for sale. The resulting video file is about 50 meg on average. The host they are currently with gives 200meg as standard. After 3 videos were added to the site the space was full, so a further 200meg was purchased (not cheaply) another 4 videos and its full again. I have 4 more to add and can’t.

The choices are to by another 200meg (at $235) or move hosts to one that gives much more space. Bandwidth is also a consideration as people view the videos the bandwidth gets eaten!

If anyone has any suggestions of a host that gives loads of space and bandwidth and doesn’t cost the earth I’d appreciate it.

I use 1&1 buisness package click here with no problems so far. 4 GB web space
40 GB monthly traffic for Appox £100 a year. 23:27 10 Mar 2007

as AndySD, but have recently opened another account for my forum with Sitepoint. It's even cheaper than 1 & 1 for 40gig webspace and 900gig monthly traffic! Amazing deal really.

Sitepoint the publisher? I didn't think that they offered hosting but they do list hosting offers in their Marketplace. 23:19 11 Mar 2007

Thanks to everyone for taking the time to respond. I decided to go to HeartInternet ( after looking at quite a few). They have an option with unlimited bandwidth and disc space £129.00.

So far everything has gone very smoothly. I just uploaded the site. Imported the database backup. Changed the passwords in the relevant places and it all worked!
