Dedicated Hosting Upgrade We are upgrading our dedicated hosting package today, amazing, we now have a 80 GIG hard-drives and the company uses 40, we have what they call 37 soft to use. We will go to 250 Gig and a lot of other jargon. WestHost.com Dedicated Servers

Our Hosting Company is WestHost.com for the last few months. I am NOT recommending this company, I am just telling you. Pleass, do not go buy, just because we are using this company.
Our former company was with Carlos of Relio.com, then he sold to something called. Weberz.com.
This company is: Genpac.com
The Weberz.com put the blog out of service and we had to make huge changes to do a work around, using other hosting companies. Therefore, we left Weberz.com fast as possible with the big sites. We are not fully saying goodbye and good riddance to the company Carlos sold Relio.com to.
Carlos said he would never sell, and sold.
Now we are with Westhost.com, the numbers are bigger, and some reason we have to again upgrade from level one to level two. Now it will be 219 U.S. per month. I only purchase monthly service from a hosting company and could not ever imagine more time periods. They sell, or otherwise change, and suddenly, what was reasonable, can become unreasonable.
Hosting companies are funny; they make money off the web sites that do not need what they buy. When you actual need everything to work, support, etc, to expand and do web stuff, they somewhat become disgruntled and say, we never had anyone do this before.
Dedicated servers are large headache, about 1 in 10,000 sites need them and the others are being told crazy stories by their techie staff. I am not sure we need it, but we have it, more or less makes everyone happy to not have large sites on sharing the server.
As of today, as best I can surmise, HoboTravaveler is 4.1 Gigs of root and 1.6 Gigs of Sql Database stuff.
HoboHideOut.com is about 14 Gigs of Root and about 4.8 Gigs of Sql.
There is a lot of decisions made for the future, the last think we want to do is be learning about the idiosyncrasies of dedicated servers and load balancing when we are up to our ears in submission to hobo hideout.com.
