    Google has an 8-step program for unhacking your site, which include basics like identifying the vulnerability that was used to compromise your site, as well as how to request a review so Google will remove the dreaded "this site has been compromised" message from its search results.

    Chances are its not your hosting. The more likely problem is that you've installed a plugin that has been coded to allow someone to put articles on your website. Its a pretty common SEO technique, it happens more than you think.

    To add to what vithobaaseo said:

    If you have SSH enabled on your hosting account - use a key dont use a password.

    If you are running Wordpress - use Wordfence and on top of that limit access to your wp-login.php via htaccess. Normally the easiest method I've found is to limit based on IP - when my IP updates (mine is set to renew every 90 days approximately) I'll FTP in mod the htaccess and I can once again get access to the login. Also for Wordpress - do not have any users with simple naming strucutres ie admin since these are usually the first onces attempted. Finally, update to a secure password.
