Which type of hosting for site

Big on Hosting. Unlimited Space & Unlimited Bandwidth

I have a web site for my business that get a fair amount of traffic (2.4 million annual hits, ranging from 5-8 gigs of monthly bandwidth). I have been hosting it on a reseller plan (along with a few other sites at Hostgator). Their recent issues have just been too much for me, so I need to move this site ASAP and will move the others after that.

My concern is that I really can’t afford much if any downtime as this site hosts online registration for events held generally every weekend. Every time HG has been down for even a few minutes, someone will call to complain.

So, instead of putting it on a reseller account, should I get a shared account somewhere for just this site? Or, some other type of account?

My primary concern is uptime and I’d be willing to pay more in order to ensure it is running because every time it’s down, I’m losing money.

Thanks for any input or suggestions.
