Looking for a shared hosting, leaving Hostgator

Big on Hosting. Unlimited Space & Unlimited Bandwidth

In the past I have used Bluehost and HostMonster. In the beggining they were OK, but they oversell their hosting and thousands of small sites are hosted on a single machines. So my sites became slow.

That why I have switched to Hostgator four years ago. They were OK and they still are. But I have bad experience with EIG and my hosting account is going to expire in 10 days. This is the right time to leave HostGator.

Plus, I have to pay 120 for next 12 months.
After reading experiences on this forum for last two days I started thinking about stablehost.

I will list websites I want to host on a single account

  • web-site-1 A single page website, almost no visitors. I use this domain for my email.
  • web-site-2 Static HTML website with up to 20 visitors per day.
  • web-site-3 A website with around 20 visits per day, uses a MySQL database. I wrote the code.
  • Five WordPress websites

First three website don’t use too much bandwith and I guess that they will work fine with any hosting. My concern is about five wordprees website. I started them recently. Right now they have arround 100 visits/day together. But, I started working on them recently and I expect they will have hunderths of visitors per day in a month or two. Right now the biggest of them has 50+ posts. Last month I have spent 1GB of bandwith. Month Before that only 800MB. All websites including databases are around 250MB.

I think Stablehost Basic should be fine at least for the beginning. I will pay 6 months, and with coupon it will cost me 18.96 (Recurring Discount). It is much cheaper than Hostgator. The question is will it be as good as hostgator was few months ago.
