Please help me in choosing web hosting

Hi everyone,
I am sorry for possible offtopic, but I need your help in find new web hosting provider as soon as possible, because my current host (bluehost.com) is kicking me off, they say 'your account is using a lot server resources', but my website gets only about 200 visitors per day and my disk usage is 1500 MB (maybe they do not like that?)

Anyway, what would be your recommendations for getting reliable web hosting? Where are you hosting your websites? Are you happy with your providers?

I am now checking Hosting24.com - First Class Web Hosting Services - offer looks very nice, but is it real that they can provide unlimited disk space?
I have contacted them about this question and they say something that "These days 500GB disk drive costs only $30 per month, so if some day we will run out of disk space we will simply add new 500GB disk drive with almost zero costs and you can continue uploading without any problems".

What do you think about it? Maybe things have changed in last 4 years? With my current provider I get only 2GB of disk space for $10 per month..
Any ideas and suggestions are much appreciated.

Go with yahoo, I've been using them for years. In fact, I think that is the only product Yahoo offers that actually works well.

Actually my web server is extremely robust. I don't have an actual website per say, but I have all kinds of stuff going on with my server that is not seen by the public. That is why I only have that one index file. I have the corporate account with Yahoo and have been using them for years with only about 3 serious problems in the past years. You should go to their small business site and read your options. Its the best bang for the buck.

I mainly use my site for file transferring music to other people in New York, Atlanta etc.... So people would assume there is nothing there, but I have about 10 subfolders holding everything from music videos, to streaming audio. I give out the link because its easier to do so then to send CD's in the mail. I also use the email client to establish better handling of my email. It is the best and safest way to make sure no matter what, I get my emails and all the larger files most people send me.
