    I've outgrown my current hosting provider (some shoddy reseller, basic 10gb bandwidth monthly)

    I have looked at BlueHost which seem alright, i understand their unlimited bandwidth is NOT truley unlimited but will they be ok with my using 5gb MAX per day? Or will CPU usage be too high for shared hosting?

    I'm after a reliable host which i can use for WH and "BH" (facebook viral campaigns) hosting.

    Any ideas or suggestions?

    Really appreciate any help... i've just had to MASSIVELY scale back one site because its getting silly amounts of traffic!

    BH side there is some websites for you,
    wrzhost.com
    admin.2x4.ru

    You better get a dedicated, no one ever complain. Plus it's a good time to scale up your method.

    I think semi dedicated will suffice, any recommendations?

    it really depends on how much traffic that you have coming to your site. It can get really costly fast. Even is the site is not taking up a lot of hard drive space but the site is taxing the system using 70% or more of the resources you will have issues.

    Contact your current host company and see what you are using now. Then show host companies. I have a host review site that I can send you the link if you want.

    I've had peaks of 5k, surely this is hammering a shared host? I've not heard back from them so not sure if it's a big problem, just looking at different avenues.

    What figures of daily uniques would you say would be an issue for shared hosting? Thanks
