It may be time to change to a new host.

It may be time to renew with my existing host.

If I change, I can save significantly. (75%)

If I stay, I will...

-- remain with a host with which I am familiar
-- pay about twice what I paid for the signup deal
-- pay about four times what the EL-Cheap-O places are offering

I changed to this host due to various reasons, and I'm glad I did.

I learned about lower costs, and I like them

Now their costs are going up as high as the previous host, which makes the advantage approximately gone.

So far, my website(s) have been super low traffic and almost zero upkeep.

Question One: What do the experts here think ?

Question Two: There are one zillion hosting companies; where do I read the opinions of those who use them ?

(preferably, those who are currently using multiple hosts for multiple sites)

Question Three: is there a better place than the lounge to have this discussion ?


----EDIT----UPDATE----

Responses have indicated that my original post lacked needed info.

I have...

About 50 domain names; maybe 75; haven't counted.

About 100 or 200 E-mail addresses; again, haven't counted. The vast majority (90% easily) of those are just E-mail forwarding addresses; I use them for spam paranoia.

As time progresses, I want to host two or three small focused forums.

These forums will grow to millions of users and make me rich without any work (oh yeah)
