Just want to share my experience with several webhosts when I hosted my website (images/videos) with them.
Initially, I bought a shared hosting account from Godaddy - Server is slow most of the time, when I contacted their technical support it took 48 hours for them to respond. - Totally sucks!
Then, moved the data to Site5 - Better than Godaddy in terms of technical support, but their servers are slow looks like they are overselling the resources. They also wanted me to change the hosting plan from thir regular servers.
Later, I contacted Onlinecares - Their sales were not so good and appears to be not interested in getting a new customer, also their prices are higher comparing to the other two. After a few email transactions, they suggested me to purchase their VPS hosting account. Just wanted to admit, their technical support staffs are great, they transferred all my data to the server for free of cost. Also, they did some changes (Nginx installation/optimization - sorry, I'm not a technical savvy) to the server and my website became super fast after that. I'm a happy customer of Onlinecares for the last 2 years and I recommend them to others.
My one dollar advise. - Never go with cheap/free webhosting services. If you pay nuts, you will get only monkeys!
