As subject says.

I have constant problems with my hosting companies and I would like to find out what hosting providers you all are using and why.

- What is good with them what is not. - Did you have any problems in the past? - How much you are paying and how long you are using that service?

Please Ladies and Gentleman to help me out to find good and reliable hosting company.

Many thanks in advance!

Raf.

Just a few weeks ago, I started using Slicehost; it’s not your average host, where you FTP up your files or tweak settings in an Admin panel: you’re basically given a Linux computer with a public IP address and you have to set everything up yourself. They provide tons of tutorials and documentation for setting it all us. So far, I’ve had no issues (other than a coincidental problem on their end when I set up the account), but I haven’t been using it long.

I use a service called DreamHost and am quite pleased. MUCH beter than GoDaddy. If anyone is interested in switching, I can get discounts. ;) Feel free to contact me directly with questions.

godaddy – rubish daddy with crap name ;]


i’ve used godaddy, mediatemple and currently using hostgator .. i don’t use it extensively, but so far the support has been alright, and hostgator is pretty cheap too .. so you might wanna give it a go if you haven’t already .. what hosting are u using right now?

I’m using maiahost.com & ehost.pl, where the response time is reasonable then there is still a lot of other issues with them.

Maia: It took them 48h to transfer my website where I was told 24h, sometimes when you chat to them on online chat they can just ignore you and leave session. They are keep blocking my IP when I try to use FilleZilla and they couldn’t sort it out for several days. That’s why I’m asking coz I probably will have to buy another server and domain name, no1 is anymore professional in does cheap hosting services. I can’t trust anyone coz before I bought server from Maia I talk to them in details about my problems, etc. That I’m using my ftp everyday, that I’m using about 2-3gb of bandwidth a day and all was cool – till I was actually using their service.

Ehost: Polish shit hosting company claiming they are the best in country, etc… they are not. Customer service is also reasonably quick in response but all they servers got cap on everything which is joke and instructions are dated and not precise + no freebees + they are very expensive.

Than ATM I can’t access my FTM or cPanle. I can’t use my websites and I’m full of pure anger :>

+1 to using a VPS . Once you learn Linux SysAdmin, they are very powerful machines with which you can do anything you want!
