    I have been using bluehost for over 2 years and everytime i was decided to move somewhere else, all of a sudden the problems were fixed.

    Recently, a lot of my files have been virused, and everytime they shut down my hosting and mailed me with a malware.txt file indicating the virused files i have to delete.

    Up until 2 days ago, I have installed a BRAND NEW e107 website through their "mojo" service, and yesterday it already had virused files. The guy on technical support said my password for admin was weak, but in fact it was ultra strong. They also told me this is the last time they do the malware.txt file for me and if i dont purchase SITELOCK which scans my files, they will ban my hosting forever if i get viruses again.

    I havent heard once in my life such a bullshit thing, forcing me to pay for something, when they simply have to do their jobs.

    ----

    Now I am looking for some other hosting, I REALLY NEED recommendations as fast as possible.
    I mainly have a couple of website (movies, ppd and a couple of blogs).

    I would preffer offshore, but I have no idea if I should go for a VPS or shared hosting.

    Currently looking at wrzhost or knownSRV (shared), what are your suggestions ? Please let me know if I should look for a VPS or shared.

    If your files get infected it may be your problem, like you have some sort of malware on your windows system.
    No hoster will handle malware site (if is not off-shore) and also your website will soon get penalized by Google.
    And no, your site's security isn't their job unless you purchased such service.

    And as for your question about VPS or shared hosting - what traffic does your website have, e.g. how many hits per day?
    In fact, in most cases, good shared hosting is better then a cheap VPS configured by a noob.

    i dont think in total all my websites get more than 3000-5000 hits/day.

    What you recommend for shared hosting ?

    Sorry for all of your troubles. That is a horrible way for them to try selling you another service. Some decent hosts are:

    hostgator
    namecheap
    asmallorange
    dreamhost - they have been kind of slow on my end lately

    DotVPS do great cPanel hosting, I'd stay clear from GoDaddy, Heart, 12-3reg or JustHost.
