Time for a new host

Ever since I upgraded SVoC, the comment system has been completely shagged. The problem seems to lie not with MT 2.661 as such, but rather with my host, 1&1. I always got the occasional 500, but now I get them all the time, and it seems I'm not alone. Upgrading MT has exacerbated the problem, since it seems a little more resource-hungry now, but the ultimate issue is with 1&1's low resource thresholds.

This is just the straw which breaks the camel's back, frankly, since they've been pissing me off for a while. Their support, well, doesn't, and I can't find anything on the admin screens, even when they don't hang. So, a new host.

I hear good things about 34SP. Any other suggestions? Who do you use?

Oh, and if you comment, don't be surprised if you get a 500 - in fact, you almost certainly will. I'll be able to rebuild the HTML to show your comments manually.

And thanks to Aaron for his kind offer, but I run a few sub-sites, so I'll probably go for a paid-for host. I split the cost with other family members.

Update: With Dad being ill and all, I'll not be able to get around to this for a while. But the move will happen eventually...
