Previously Technotip.org was hosted at Yahoo! and due to very bad downtime, I thought to shift it to some other reliable hosting company. I just Googled around and saw that Dreamhost was the most popular and almost all its customers were praising it in an unbelievable manner. I just jumped to buy hosting with them, and sent an email, asking for some clarifications. And I got a very fast response and with all my basic doubts cleared. I was still more impressed. But I was smelling a Rat, due to its offering of Terabytes of bandwidth and 500GB or more..of disk space.
I just bookmarked most of the websites that promoted Dreamhost and was watching for its reliability. To my wonder, all these sites had downtime of almost 2 to 4 times a day (yes, you heard it right, the downtime was on every day).
Frequent downtime means trouble to your visitors and to your SERP ranking. Search Engines will surly not be able to access your website/blog and this will surly have a very bad effect on PR and over all SERP ranking.
About the bandwidth offering from many hosting companies, are simply useless.Because, a very famous website/blog will not use even 20GB of Bandwidth.
When a visitor views your site, all the text, pictures, and other files that make up your web pages are transferred to your visitor’s computer. Data transfer is a measure of the total amount of information your visitors view each month.
An average 5-page site with text and pictures will use 0.0003GB of data transfer per visit. A site with music and videos will use 0.02GB of data transfer per visit.
Doreo offers almost 60GB Bandwidth for its beginner hosting plan. It is cost effective, reliable, Digg proof, Spam free, very fast servers and the best hosting company with best uptime records.

For more details on the Doreo network, please visit their network page.
Bad things with other hosting companies are, they oversell their service(i.e., by offering unlimited bandwidth/disk space or tera bytes of bandwidth/disk space etc). And they will accumulate many sites on one server and get things to jam easily. Because of this, they will have many downtime’s each day.
Technotip.org is now hosted at Doreo, and I am a happy, satisfied customer.
If you have used Doreo host , please share your thoughts and experience with us.
And also share your experience with current hosting company..
