I’m currently using HostingMatters‘ B1000 plan, which appears to be the best deal, as it is massively larger in terms of bandwidth and disk space than any of the lesser plans whereas the larger plans get substantially more expensive with only incremental gains in bandwidth. I was down to about 4 megs of disk space and, rather than risk losing important post data at the upper limit of the account, I’ve deleted most of the photos associated with posts more than a month old from the server; I have retained them on my hard drive. If, for some reason, there’s something in the archives that you particularly want a photo for, let me know and I’ll re-load it.

    FYI, Hosting Matters will create a special plan for you if you ask them. They did this for me because I needed to increase bandwidth but didn’t need all the other stuff, and then did it again when I needed extra disk space after all. Turns out MT is a seething disk space monster.

    Just thought I’d let you know.

    Thanks! I’ll inquire.
