NOT UNLIMITED. I just received the mail from #Bluehost >>> It has come to our attention that your site is using an excessive number of files stored on your #bluehost account. This is causing performance problems on your website as well as for other customers that are on this server. It can cause our servers to crash and cause additional downtime. Our reseach shows that server performance degrades when accounts have over 50,000 files. In order to ensure optimal performance for your account and the others in your shared hosting environment, we request that you reduce the number of files on your account to under 50,000 by 06/10/2009. you can set up Only 50000 files!!@@

    Curious as to why there have been a couple of dislikes…if there's something else someone would like to know or for me to cover, let me know and I'll try and fill in the blanks.

    What hosting company are you with? It sounds like they have some problems with their server. Chances are they need to update something on the server…

    Do you recommend getting SiteLock Domain security and Site Backup Pro on Bluehost? Those options come pre-selected, but I don't know if I have a need for them at an extra $14.99 and $12.99/mo, respectively

    I did everything according to your instructions, but when I press on the URL or the URL for admin access, it shows that site has not been found, I am 100% sure that I did everything correctly…
