    Hi guys

    I am really fed up with all these hosting providers. Every single ones claim everything unlimited, which of course is not true - and then they start limiting - inodes, cpu usage and the newest is "too much incoming traffic" or "massive resource abuse". Can you guys give me some advise for a good hosting?

    nothing is UNLIMITED

    but what you can do is get dedicated servers or VPS and try if you have high traffic to your website

    Depends on what your purposes are largely, but in my personal experience:

    Avoid most of the big names like godaddy, hostgator, bluehost, etc.

    Reseller hosting can be useful and cost-efficient if you don't want to manage your own VPS. Inmotion hosting has served me well, but their support is shit.

    Moneysite hosting, once your site is profitable: WPENGINE, Flywheel, Synthesis, Pressly

    I used to love Wpengine, but I felt their support started tanking when they began to start scaling. I've been using flywheel lately and have been very impressed.

    All that's assuming you're using Wordpress. My only other experiences are with Magento, which was hosted with MageMojo—which I'd recommend to anyone.

    You might want to share with us the type of site you're hosting.
    Is it a small blog or is it a resource heavy sharing / streaming site ?

    As others have said, nothing is unlimited.
    You don't walk into an all you can eat unlimited buffet Monday lunchtime and expect to still be sat there eating Sunday evening.

    If you're constantly running into resource abuse I'd suggest you move to a dedi or at least VPS.
    Physical server is ideal cause you have fixed hardware and only you control its usage, hosting company has almost no way to fool you or shave on resources. If you run out of resources you buy a better server but you always are the one in control while with hosting company you play a black box and must trust what they say.

    If you lack resources you're likely hosting a big project so be ready to spend more money, 2 bucks hosting won't stand it.

    At least try VPS it is cheap these days, you can buy smth considerable for $10.

    And I'd never go with a unlimited hosting plan, yes it can look very promising but simple logic suggests it is never about to happen under the sun cause nothing is unlimited, I have more trust when everything is told straightforward, like you have X GB of space, Y GB BW, Z GB of RAM etc. If some one states he offers unlim HDD space all I can think of is that guy tries to fool me.
