I am now at Hostgator after being with some really crappy hosts.

I was talking to a rep on live chat and they were telling me I cannot have arcade games on a shared hosting account and that I needed to get dedicated hosting. Is this guy full of it or is that true?? My site is little. Gets about 500 uv/day.

Nope hes just blaping a load of crap like always there live support sucks... i had alot of issues with there live support lol...

Yes it is allowed it isn't in there terms to not use your hosting as arcade/gaming site they might of been thinking it was like for a gaming clan you know they use them for counter strike ect.

If they got a issue then they'll have to handle me hands on and i don't think anyone would say otherwise.. =P

Hostgator <-- amazing uptime!
Crissic <-- i know the host plus him and his team are amazing at there jobs!
dream-hosting.co.uk <-- good for a cheap topsites

Yeah. at hostgator my sites seem to load quite fast...compared to the other hosts.

The rep kept saying something about multi user games, but I said I was just talking about regular flash games.

I also just switched to HostGator. I like them much better than DreamHost so far. Just a warning though. Do not name any of your addon domains or subdomains or any other folders in your public_html folder the same as your username for your main domain. My One of my sites was down for almost 6 days because my addon domains folder was the same as my main domains username. The site would show up but it would call all the information from the wrong database no matter what I or the Support did.

Sorry type in wrong stuff...

Make main domain name a junk domain that doesn't connect to any databases nor scripts just a simple website showcase kinda site. then you can use the other domains on the database and it woulded conflict with each other.

Thats my advice on that!

aka i had the same issue with my sites both link dumps lol...

When I started this thread, I was perfectly happy with IXWebhosting, but their performance dropped significantly causing all my sites to run slow if at all. Lost loads of users and adsense income They never recovered my previous load speed or offered recompense so I dumped them in favour of Hostgator too. All my sites run faster now but I have noticed that there is an overall account limit of 50,000 files (or inodes as they call them) Just make sure your file count is within that limit.

If you save this snippet as inodes.php and upload it in your primary domain, it'll tell you your inode count:

<?php
system("/usr/bin/quota | /bin/awk '{ if ( $5 ~ /^[0-9]/) total+=$5 } END {print \"Total Inodes :\" , total}'");
?>

Hello Peter,
Your own host or server?

Also, please check your coding. When I access the site, it asks me to grant the site access to my clipboard. Not a kewl thing.

I have a dedicated server between me and another person, and I am a reseller for a hosting company as well for hosting.

Asking you to copy something? Weird

Will have a look.
