  • A good host is hard to find...

    • I've been with servermatrix for about 10 months. I think there was one 4 hour switch failure last winter or spring but no other complaints at all. I have called the datacenter several times with questions and even at 3 am the phone was answered within a minute or two by a real, live person. One night at about 1 am I changed my httpd.conf file and screwed up so apache wouldn't load. Took them 20 minutes to figure it out (I had uploaded the file in Mac 'format' rather than unix and so apache freaked out trying to read it). I FTPed the file in unix 'format', telnetted in and restarted apache, and was online again.

      Before that I tried server beach - left them in 6 weeks. Nightmare. Big Kahuna and all that.

      Before that was on a verio virtual server for about 5 years. I left because I needed a dedicated and a dedicated on verio was outragous $ wise.

      Yeah - There are a lot of companies wanting to sell server space. The failure mode is almost always service issues. One of my main requirements is 24/7/365 live tech support. If I can't get them on the phone in under 5 minutes I'm not interested. They won't be there if I have a real problem.

        • I'm with asmollorange.com now, it's the 2nd month, they're great, server are hosted on theplanet.com, I pay 32$/m for 2.5 GB webspace, 120 GB/m traffic, dedicated ip address, unlimited mail, db, alias, subdomain etc. They give me cpanel 9. They are very fast in tricks answers and it's possible to create custom plan.
          IMHO they are great.

              • Only 1 MySQL database...

                Well although their bandwidth and storage are up to par for myself... only 1 mysql DB?

                Junk! You can do MUCH better then 1&1 in my opinion! Unless you're absolutely bent on the idea of their hosting and that you WONT need to install any other Database driven software EVER...

                I'd suggest looking for something with Cpanel 9.

                      • Anyone who claims to give unlimited bandwidth is flat out lying, and I wouldn't even consider using anyone who would make such an ignorant statement.

                        That's deceptive advertising.

                        wups. he deleted his post.

                        • I would never consider such a company either. I have found that the ones that offer tons of bandwidth for little money tend to oversell their servers, and the site runs slow. Wonder why he deleted the post.

                          • You're right on that too.

                            I own a couple of hosting companies. I can't say the name or URL due to the forum rules on advertising, but I can safely tell you that no reputable company will ever offer unlimited bandwidth.

                            They do that banking on the fact that they'll still carry a maintainable level of bandwidth. Anyone taking advantage of the offer that starts using a LOT of bandwidth, they'll simple discountinue the account. In fact, most times if you read through the ToS it will be posted that they reserve the right to terminate you for any reason whatsoever.

                            Bandwidth is like a commodity. nobody gets it free. depending on the package ordered things should fall in line with a reasonable number.

                                • I've never had a problem with them. Reasonable support response time. And no, I don't work for them. I just really love them.

                                Anyone else have any experience with this host?
