Maybe move from Hostgator to VPS


As posted, have problems with my host, Hostgator. Too much traffic, they say. It is a cheap shared account, supposed to be unlimited data, except it isn't.

I would like to have more control, and not get taken down when traffic peaks.

Jamesbond has recommended these guys:

...very cheap. Unmetered?! Ah, ok, data bandwidth is shared, but according to this, they won't actually take down a VPS:

This is an interesting getting-started read on VPS:

These guys specify a certain amount of data allowed per month, also they cost more:

...I wonder what happens if that limit is reached? Throttled, taken down?
