Yeah, pretty much all of the packages in that range experience the same thing. With hosting, you really do get what you pay for because it's something that the hosting company can control. If you pay more, they make sure that your site doesn't go down. If you pay less, they adopt a more "Yeah, we're gonna get to that ..................someday...." approach to fixing problems.torndownunit said:That's the problem with a lot of these huge hosts with dirt cheap packages. Their prices are fantastic, but you end up comprimising on reliability.
That said, if you're not running a business from your site and it's just a recreational/personal thing, a little downtime every once in a while isn't gonna kill ya and you'll save a lot of money.
