I really have a problem here. I moved my website to a new host just like last month. A couple days ago I got an email saying that my website was over using CPU resources and they threatened to suspend the account if I didn't reply within 7 days. My website host is Siteground.com. I'm really freaking out right now trying to get my entire site backed up and whatnot. I need help! They claimed when I signed up that they hosted like 130,000 Joomla sites and mines would fit in and work with the package great. And low and behold, I get a notice saying that the website is overusing resources. They say that I'm not overusing bandwith, but I'm overusing CPU resources. They tell me to upgrade to a VPS hosting package but $100/month is not something I can afford!
I'm really mad at them right now, and I need the community's help. Does anyone know of a good host that will provide me with hosting within acceptable limits? I'm looking for something, $15 a month MAX. I need at least 100GB monthly bandwith, 20GB+ storage space, MySQL, PHP, etc. etc.
I really need urgent assistance right now

Well I guess these need to be quantified.

Without knowing these you could eventually end up with the same problem elsewhere. (Might be some deficiencies in the site that need to be corrected or improved.)

Unfortunately this will cost me $200 a year but w/e if that's what it takes to get the site back up

Stay away from 1&1 hosting they really suck.

The first is NearlyFreeSpeech.net. For any website with a small traffic load, they are perfect. You deposit money into your account and you only pay based on the number of hits you get (and the amount of disk space you are using). So if you never get any traffic, you literally don't pay a thing. Everytime I make small informational websites for clients, I use NearlyFreeSpeech.net
Bluehost is pretty fantastic. I have yet to hear any real complaints against them, and I know their customer support is great. I am hosting a CakePHP application that runs slow on NearlyFreeSpeech, so I'm going to be switching it to Bluehost in the near future.
I've used GoDaddy in the past. They are pain. Ugh.

Just completed the switch to HostGator and it all went perfectly Great service, lots of features, nice tech support I can't try and recommend them to everyone now because I've only been with them for like 2 days. But next month I'll tell you guys how it goes.
Actually to be honest, 1&1 is in my experience on of the best hosts I was with (been with them for 1.5 years). Their tech support is average, and the features are basic but it kept my site alive for 1.5 years without problem.
I was considering BlueHost but HostGator offered more features in the end so I went with them

Yeah, HostGator would work for sure, and their beginner plan is really cheap

You can learn a lot by reading forum posts on www.webhostingtalk.com
I learned a lot there! Mostly that any host, with shared hosting plans, that offers unlimited bandwidth or storage is full of crap. There is no such thing as unlimited - for example, a $7/month plan with "unlimited" bandwidth on shared hosting - why wouldn't someone like Amazon.com move to their server? Because "unlimited" bandwidth and storage is BS! They just make those claims to pack in as many clients as they can, and they hope that each one has an obscure website that nobody visits, so they don't really use any real bandwidth or CPU power.
Basically, you want to find a reasonably priced host who outlines reasonable storage and bandwidth limitations, who has good records of helping customers. Two hosts that I could personally recommend would be DownTownHost and WireNine.
The reason you want your host to define bandwidth limitations on a shared hosting plan is to guarantee that the rest of the people's websites on that server don't exceed the limitations either. So you are allowed your fair share too.
