  • venturesonline.com - top people !

    I would just like to start a thread that I plan to update weekly.

    I have (after weeks of evalution) signed up with venturesonline.com I read most of the threads in this and other forums as I have a tight budget and limited knowledge when it comes to hosting,PHP, MySQL etc.

    You can see that I was nervous and desperate to make a choice, the right choice.

    So far I have signed up and have asked 2 questions, both of which have been replyed to within 2 hours. This is simply great support, and from a human, not a bot.

    I must stress that I am not running, nor plan to run vBulletin on my (Venture3 virtual hosting package), so i cant offer advice there.

    If you are a first timer looking for a host, drop by www.venturesonline.com

    I started this thread as I didnt see anyone doing a regularly updating thread to let others know the score. I hope this is ok.

    Next update, next week
    Talking loud but aint saying nothing.

          The board is closed at the moment since the server is moved and the mySQL-database is down. Please check back on Thu Jun 21.

            Nuno, check back now. The reason why this message came was because Venturesonline moved to Verio with their servers. Unfortunately, they had a hard disk failure on my server but they fixed it within a few hours. And give me a credit foor the problems. Support is also great there.

            And stupid me forgot to Turn on the board again...

            [edit]
            I also updated the style now.

                Any site whose CGI programs are using excessive amounts of system resources. Excessive amounts is defined as any amount that results in substantial degradation of server performance. Ventures Online is the sole determinant of what consititues degraded server performance.

                This alone makes me weary of going with them as a host provider. Basically, you are powerless and since this is NOT QUANTIFABLE this is bunk. Also, they say only VB or PHBB can be run on their servers for boards otherwise it is CGI abuse. BUNK.

                  Just to give you all an update !

                  I got my site set up on www.mrvisor.co.uk I asked to have assistance in directing mrvisor.com and .net to the same servers, I got a reply within 30 minutes and this was done within 24 hours - top stuff !

                  I have also been having problems setting up a MySQL database. I dropped them a support question and I got helpful advice back in 45 minutes. Perfect.

                  I can not fault them at the moment, and I dont plan on using a CGI bin so I am not bothered.

                  People if you want A class support, you want VO

                    I posted the wron plan. I have Venture 5 with 500 MB. I don't have to care about where they are used.

                      Venturesonline.com just changed their policy: UBB and YaBB are not allowed anymore because of taking too much server resources.

                        Yeah I saw that announcement too. Not a good time to have a UBB site on Venturesonline!

                        I notice they didn't make a distinction between UBB6 and UBBN 5.4x. I would think that 5.4x would not cause too many resource problems.

                            True, but AFAIK UBB 5.4x should run fine on a shared server.

                            At any rate I feel sorry for any UBB webmasters who may be affected by this. It's not their fault that UBB6 is a resource hog.
