Actually, finding a host to host my site, that has been the problem. The reason it has been down the past, for weeks at a time, is because the site had no host, and it's not because of bandwidth running out. Of course, finding a host supplying me with enough bandwidth is one problem, but if I had a host (which I have), bandwidth is generally not a problem. But usually when I do find one, it's something I will be staying on for a while unless the person decides to quit or something.
Now, about the current state of the website. There's plenty of space, and plenty of bandwidth. The "exceeded bandwidth" thing is an error, I'm suppose to have to more bandwidth than that, and it has been fixed by my host. My host just moved to a new server (that means I move too), so there's a few minor problems like that.
Am I rich? Not exactly. And I'm not too excited about purchases online either (paranoid about that kind of stuff). So if there's someone out there that wants to host my site (if and when I need it), contact me, it's always good to have a backup plan to turn to if my current host fails. But the current host I am on has been working fine, I have the bandwidth I need, we're just running into some minor problems with the new server, I don't expect it to be an ongoing problem.

That's not really a problem. I have stats for the website, and direct linking isn't causing a major bandwidth issue. Like I said, bandwidth is not an issue, I have enough, and the bandwidth exceeded thing has just been an error.
