    I have an article directory based in wordpress.
    On google analytics i have 50-100 unique visitors and 200-300 pageviews.
    I am currently using shared hosting from mytruehost.com
    but they disabled my hosting saying that your hosting is disabled due to high server load.
    As my site is an article directory so some bots also register to my site( i think that causes server load)
    i have never purchased VPS or dedicated server before.I only purchased cheap shared hosting.
    Please suggest which hosting should i go for?
    i have few questions.Please help
    tell me what is the difference between dedicated server and vps?
    Managed vps and unmanaged vps?
    someone suggested me to go for VPS.
    Found one site with cheap vps vpscheap.net 256Mb ram which cost only 6$
    is 256Mb ram enough for my site?
    when i asked vpscheap.net that whether they provide cpanel for hosting my site.
    he said we provide you control panel for your VPS, not for webhosting.
    what does it mean (i cant host my site?)
    Please answer my questions .i am a complete noob to all this.
    Thanks
    Saurabh

    You can host your website on a VPS/Dedicated server. The difference between a VPS and a Dedi is that a VPS is one computer ran on some form of server software and you are on a shared server. A Dedi is a much larger version of that, you have access to all the resources of the machine you are on and in control of your own server.

    Personally, for a VPS or a Dedi, I'd got with Hostgator or Wooservers. They both have good plans and fast customer service whenever an issue arises.

    To throw in my 2 cents, I've never had a problem with hostwinds, have 4 sites I believe up with them, support always comes around within a half hour

    go with godaddy and use coupon codes, they seem really expensive but if it's your first time buying and you use coupon codes you could get 70% off the economy plan is $4 a month and offers 100gb of storage and unlimited bandwidth. That's $48 a year without any coupons.

    I also read a lot of good reviews on hawkhost and stablehost.

    Shared hosting for 100-200 is nothing on shared hosting.. Try to install cache plugin and disable the no use plugins.

    VPS is still a shared PC with other sites but you have more control over resources

    Dedicated is more expensive but its only you using the resources so your better able to keep your sites running optimally.

    I started with Shared went to VPS and Finally dedicated -- for me with not alot of server knowledge I found the dedicated box way better than the first 2 .. my Sites always load fast and alot less issues.

    WiredTree is what I would suggest - but you pay a little more of course.

    As someone suggested above some plugins may help you optimize your site first before you need to up your hosting budget.

    Think of having a deal with readymakers or rivalhost.
    Their service is able to meet the needs of any discriminating webmaster.
    Prices are competitive and uptime is high.

    I think you are mistaken, the OP said he wanted a good host, not one of the shitest about.
