It's not entirely FMA-based, but it involves my site - so please help me ^^;;

I never thought I'd ever need more than 3GB a month o_O. I'm already up to 4GB, and that's only after buying an extra 2GB yesterday. o___O;;

So, does anyone know where I can find another host? My domain's paid for a year, but my hosting gets renewed on the 15th - when I have to pay again.
I want about 1GB of space (same as I have now), but more than 5GB bandwidth. Preferably somewhere in the 10+ range ^^;. Help!

[EDIT] Sorted, thanks ^^

Lunarpages is the best deal, in my experience. For $7.95 a month I have 40GB monthly bandwidth and 1000MB for space. My disk usage is 271.13MB and I still have 728.87MB free. I've had them for about a year, and the only problem I ever encountered was my usual dissatisfaction with the email help, but they have a help forum where you can post any problem and I've always gotten multiple friendly replies there within minutes. A+++ service. Very happy with it. ^__^

Would I have to transfer my domains to that one - or is it hosting only?

I think when you change hosts you have to update the DNS servers for your domain, but it's easy and they tell you how. Or your current host might do it for you. If you go to their website and click the "support" button in the top-middle of the page, you'll find a link to the forums in a bubble box in the left menu. Go to the "Pre-Sales Questions" section and ask anything you're unsure about - I guarantee you'll hear from them pretty quick. :)

I use http://www.westhost.com They're great and they offer a *lot* of installable server side applications. They have excellent customer service, reply to emails within 12 hours, phone calls with relatively little hold time and you get to talk to a person who knows his shit, excellent forum support.

I myself use the Ultimate plan but I got in on a New Year's special and pay the Deluxe price. I've never had a problem with them. I get emails with expected server outages, and they have a network status page which his upto the minute and if there ever is an outage that status page shows an ETA.

I really really love them.

If you want to compare packages:

I use http://www.globat.com . They give 2.5GB of server space, and 75GB bandwidth a month... for $7.95 a month. Really the best deal I've found, and I've only had my site go down once in the year I've been there so far. Just renewed my site there, actually.

You can register your domain there, or keep it registered where you've got it.
