A good (low) budget Webhoster without nasty surprises?

Big on Hosting. Unlimited Space & Unlimited Bandwidth

I am very unsure.
Many customers make very good reviews with star rating, but there are also bad reviews.
For example webhostingpad. Many good ratings, and only dozens bad reviews, but these are frightening.

All is “unlimited”, but if your site has to much visitors you can get suspended 0_o.
Also with refund problems.
And they have asterisks without explanation after Space, Bandwith and the free domain.
Answer in the support chat was only “Great” (are they nutty?) from “Pat”.

I need a good recommendation for one (or two or three …) web host.
It should be cheap, but have no nasty surprises.
For example, what ist, if the website has abruptly a lot of visitors?

E.G. a site for rating employment office clearks (her often antisocial to criminal behavior is a big problem in Germany), etc..
Consequence: The German media report negatively over the website.
This results in tens of thousands of visitors. The website breaks down.
By the way, the U.S. website RottenNeighbor collapsed exactly after the reporting in the German TV ;-).
“GoDaddy” has kicked Rottenneighbor.com on flimsy reasons.

I do not need plenty of space.
A few gigabytes or more? But enough addon domains but would be nice. 5 or more?
99,5% instead of 99,9 is no problem. Also 98% or possibly 95%.
What is the cheapest Webhoster without these nasty surprises?

Is there a list or test from a reputable magazine?
