Hosting question for a growing business

Big on Hosting. Unlimited Space & Unlimited Bandwidth

Hey all,

Need some help with finding a new hosting company, as Host Gator’s downtime is making a serious impact on my business.

The site is at 750,000-850,000 Visits a month (per Google Analytics). Peaks go up to 1.5 million Vists/month.

Reliable uptime is crucial. We had HostGator go down for 12 hours in the middle of our most important event of the year for 2013.

The site has a fairly heavy image load, but nothing outrageous. It’s a news-based site, with one main image, and then some background images, images on links to other stories, etc.

I get the impression that my site’s code is not well optimized, but it is a project that our Tech lead claims to be working on (if I believed him, then I probably wouldn’t be asking this question right now).

SO, who can help? Any advice is welcome. We’re open to everything – dedicated, cloud servers, etc. Cost is an issue as with any prudent business, but a cheap, unreliable answer is worse than a costlier, reliable answer.

Thanks in Advance!
