    Hey everybody,

    I've tried searching on this forum about which web hosting is best for bhw use, mainly adult links to cam sites. I'm currently with godaddy and i have a 503 Service Unavailable msg. I called them up and he said I hit my 100 concurrent connection limit. I'm currently on the $6.99/mo deluxe plan. He said if I'm anticipating traffic, cheapest route is a virtual server for $42.99/mo.

    After all the reading, it seems HostGator and BlueHost are the 2 most popular. Between those two, what do you guys recommend? I purchased a 10k visitor package and this is the cause of the 503 Service Unavail msg. Any and all suggestions welcomed, thanks in advance.

    i've used hostgator for just over 2 years now and never had any problems, never tried bluehost though.

    but i'd give hostgator a go.

    i am using bluehost it has been good so far it is cheaper than h0stgator and gives you a free domain but they are more strict with the content i think and dont allow adult stuff but h0stgator has more hosting options.
