It's my oft-stated opinion that no non-trivial site will ever live happily
for long on shared hosting. Trivial sites do fine. I have my D7 blog on
Dreamhost, which has unlimited everything. But you see, it's not really
unlimited, because they kill long-running processes, etc., etc.  So it's
fine for a site that does not have many visitors or lots of modules.
Dreamhost and some other hosts are even fine where you have lots and lots of
databases or files. But it's the actual use where they get you.
