    Im currently using Hostwinds because i got a good deal on black friday but i feel like they arent as good as they used to be and i need a change. Is Hostwinds still a recommended host on this forum or which one is the best? I need something under $15 a month, I only have 5 sites total and i dont get much traffic, less than 1k hits/day.

    It really depends.

    How many visitors you have or how many you predict you will get.

    I work with namecheap- Business Package but you can go with a VPS.

    I bought a dedicated server from online.net, Hosting around 40+ websites on it. But return of investmen is very different ofcourse. They also have a hosting package though. But here are alot of good ones, Hostgator, Siteground, Namecheap, Bluehost.

    I think hostwinds are ok. Only their customer support I found to be a bit lacking but apart from that their setup was ok.

    What do you feel like you are not getting from them?

    If you are looking at budget hosting I think you should just stay where you are.

    Then is ok to stay where you are until you get like 4-5k hits/day

    Hostwinds do it for me. If you need more capacity, just ask them. Even if it's not a "package", they're happy to do custom stuffs.

    Of course you have a whole marketplace to choose from if you wanted to try elsewhere!

    i'm renting vps from OVH and satisfied. stay away from anything shared hosting. its cheap but not worth it if you're taking affiliate marketing seriously.
