Which Host For Database Space?

Big on Hosting. Unlimited Space & Unlimited Bandwidth
I have been using Awardspace for a long time and only now realise that the ‘unlimited’ space it offers me is a lie.

They say it applies only to HDD space. Not Database space.

Where they keep the databases I don’t know.
They’re not kept on Hard Drives?

Where are they kept? Scribbled in notebooks? Joke. Maybe on tape drives?

I don’t know. But anyway…

And it seems I get only 70MB for each database. Yep. 70 Mega Bytes. Not gigabytes. Megabytes.

My databases are phpBB forum databases and none of my forums have ever done anything but attract spam. So I’ve never run into space limitations and never gave it a thought because I’ve always been thinking that ‘unlimited space’ covered it.

But now I find 70MB is the limit and I find even an empty forum can use 35MB of space. So if I got popular for a day or two I’d crash for lack of space.

And they tell me I can get 1G if I upgrade to another plan and that’s the limit unless I go VPS, virtual private server I suppose that means, they didn’t say how much that costs.

This forum, I think, specialises in just this area. So can I ask your advice, please, what should I do, where should I be looking?
