Comments from other users regarding other web hosting companies.

Name of Web Hosting Company: Global Internet Solutions

Address of Company: 807 N. Gardner Street, Los Angeles, CA

Internet Address of Company: gisol.com

Pricing Plan Purchased: Start- Up $155.00 plus $60.00 shopping cart

Comment about web hosting company: Hosting with this company has been the biggest mistake of my life. They promise the world, and deliver garbage. My site has been down for as long as 27 hours at a shot, with no refund or credit of any kind. They claim to have toll free phone support, but every time I call there, it is busy. That's been 5 months. They aslo had the website lead you to belive that the shopping cart was included, but then charged $60 bucks extra for the year. (The site has changed now)In additon, they sold me a promo pack, where they are supposed to keep my site submited to search engines. I have never seen any evidence that have done this. I have manually submitted where I can.

 

 

Name of Web Hosting Company: globat

Address of Company: www.globat.com

Internet Address of Company: www.globat.com

Pricing Plan Purchased: 7.50

Comment about web hosting company: They brought down their email server today and it has been down all day. They only have 12 servers and no redundancy.

 

 

Name of Web Hosting Company: globat

Address of Company: globat.com

Internet Address of Company: www.globat.com

Pricing Plan Purchased: $99/12 months for web hosting and mail

Comment about web hosting company: Their service is completely unsatisfactory. Their server is down frequently, and mail service unstable--they go down often as well. They do not provide service with spam mail, and their technical support is available, but they do not fix the problems without several follow-up calls. I would warn anyone considering them--yes, they are cheap, but they do not provide a stable service!

 

 

Name of Web Hosting Company: Globat

Internet Address of Company: www.Globat.com

Pricing Plan Purchased: $7.50 per month prepaid for a year

Comment about web hosting company: In less than two months, the following has happened - repeated outages (unannounced), outages for maintenance (announced AFTER they were completed, status says they are up when they are not, repeated DNS problems, all email sent for 9 days never went out and they knew of issue and didn't fix it or inform me, limit on outgoing emails after they told me there wasn't, but then they increased it per my request, lost two weeks of reporting data and only fixed it when I complained... The support staff, especially Allan, is very responsive. Unfortunately, this company cannot handle the business they have. I would recommend going to ANY OTHER web hosting company.

 

 

Name of Web Hosting Company: Globat

Address of Company: 11288 Ventura Blvd ste. 443 Los Angeles, CA 91604

Internet Address of Company: www.globat.com

Pricing Plan Purchased: 6.50/month gigabyte

Comment about web hosting company: This company is horrible. They use misleading, and downright false advertising for one thing. For another thing, if you have any problems you can be sure no one will answer the phones and if they do, they won't have the info you need, will tell you when someone will call you with the info you need, and then only give you that info after YOU call THEM back, two or three days after when they said someone would call you with the answer. They have a large noticeable "seal" on their homepage inside the ad for their site stating they have a money back guarantee which is only good for 15 days from the time the order is placed. The only way you can find this out is by trying to cancel your order, which shoots you to an obscure page that in two lines explains that basically no one gets any money back and they bill you for a year at a time!!! You will be very lucky if your site is even up in 15 days. Then you still don't have the time to have all the problems you will have pop up, and all the problems with tech support, before your guarantee period has already long expired. For at least 2 weeks I could get no email service, that's how long tech support took to make mine work. They also have a claim on their site that they have been awarded as the best new web hosting company of 2002 by a company called 100 Best Inc, which DOES NOT EVEN EXIST!!! Of all the times I had to call in on Tech Support far less than half the time did any live person answer. When I left messages, no one ever, not one single time, EVER, returned my call. When the techies that I did talk to cannot answer my question, which they never could, they always had to ask someone else, they would say they would leave the proper person a message and get back to me at a specific time. After two days past when they said they would return my call, I would call, and only then would someone finally answer my question. On 3 different occasions after having waited on hold to talk to someone for over 15 minutes, I was hung up on as soon as someo!

ne did p

ick up the line, before I even said hello. I tried to research the company through the Better Business Bureau and when you try to get the report it sends you error messages so you can't research the company anyways. No other company has that problem, I researched some just to make sure that it wasn't a site wide problem. Only this company! My brother-in-law knew of the company in it's former name, Icom, and he said they were just as unreliable and dishonest and unprofessional then as they are now. I'm sooooooo displeased to find yet another misinformed company singing the praises of a company they obviously know nothing about, when if you had any dealings with them that cost your own money, you'd be trying to report them to the Better Business Bureau yourself, instead of helping them rip off more unsuspecting victims!!!

Name of Web Hosting Company: Graphite Six Web Hosting

Address of Company: http://www.graphitesix.com

Internet Address of Company: http://www.graphitesix.com

Pricing Plan Purchased: Basic Plan

Comment about web hosting company: Over the past few years I have been with different website hosting companies who claim to have the best service or fastest connections. A few months ago I have come across Graphite Six. They are a local company based out of New York. They have added a personal touch to each one of there accounts. Every account is feature packed, and has a quick and easy setup. Basically the best way to put it is that they offer the best value for the money I have seen, and the best service I have seen in a while. The plan which I chose was the basic plan. My bill breaks down to about a little less then $9.00 a month. Included is 350MB, 15GB transfer, 2 message boards, 2 shopping carts, all sorts of software. But the best part is the personal touch I was talking about. The tech support is fast and quick, and I never thought this would happen, but during the holidays they have sent me a Happy Holiday Card! No other website host has done that. I just received the card the other day, and figured I would write a review about it!

The cons: Besides all of the great things I have mentioned, I have had a few minor problems. When I first signed on with them my account was setup instantly. The one problem I had was that the control panel wasn't working right. They have corrected the issue and actually gave me 2 months free service for the minor set back. In addition, there CEO actually called me to assure me that everything would be fine! You really can't beat that!

 

 

Name of Web Hosting Company: Halfprice Hosting

Address of Company: www.halfpricehosting.com

Internet Address of Company: www.halfpricehosting.com

Pricing Plan Purchased: WebMaster $12.46/month

Comment about web hosting company: I feel comfortable coming to Halfpricehosting.com, because they seem to welcome and even anticipate questions from those of us who don't build web sites for a living. I have dealt with their customer services and they answered all my questions, and have yet to "speak down" to me in any way, as if I should know the answers to my questions before asking them. I have dealt with a couple other hosts that have treated me this way. Furthermore, the web/e-mail management tools, and the way those tools are organized have made me feel extremely comfortable in continuing with them. I have to mention how much I like the e-mail management portion too. It's easy to navigate and make changes, and I don't depend on some tech support guy to do what I ask him to. I can fix, add / change users and passwords and control other aspects of the mail with simple online tools. I love it. Finally, I got a phone call a couple weeks after I signed up with them, from a HUMAN, asking me if there was anything I needed! What a bizarre concept in business - a company, calling a client to see if they could help with anything. I feel confident that as my web site's needs grow, that Halfpricehosting.com will be able to accomodate my growth easily, and effectively. I like getting "warm-and-fuzzies" from those I do business with, and they have provided that, at an exceptional price.

Name of Web Hosting Company: HostAMeg

Name of Web Hosting Company: HostaMeg

Address of Company: 74 haig road west,

Internet Address of Company: http://www.HostaMeg.com

Pricing Plan Purchased: Beginner Plan

Comment about web hosting company: This web hosting company gives great features with their plans but they would do better if they improved their support.

 

 

Name of Web Hosting Company: HostDime

Address of Company: HostDime.com

Internet Address of Company: http://hostdime.com/

Pricing Plan Purchased: $19.95 Windows Basic Plan

Comment about web hosting company: HostDime never answered nor replied to phone messages over the several month period I had dealings with them. Sales, billing, and technical support took 5-10 business days to respond (only by email) to even the simplest issues or problems.

HostDime's Windows Basic Plan features did not match those which they had advertised. In fact, it is hosted by another company which is partnered with HostDime.

I canceled before the 30 days but it took them over a month to acknowledge that they had received cancelation.

Because many their business practices border on the fraudulent, I would advise anyone dealing with them to use a prepaid debit card to protect themselves from unwanted charges to any of their charge or bank debit cards.

Pros: Absolutely none

Cons: Poor customer service and false advertising


 

Name of Web Hosting Company: hostgator.com

Address of Company: 2727 South Ocean Blvd Suite 803

Internet Address of Company: http://www.hostgator.com

Pricing Plan Purchased: Baby Croc $9.95

Comment about web hosting company: I have been with hostgator for a little over 6 months. They are by far the best host I've been with. I've gone from feature price who started out good, to infinology which was nothing but problems, to hostgator. Hostgator has the best support, uptime, and easiest to use control panel.

Their only con is that they don't have an 800# which is fine with me as I'm only a hour away from highland beach, fl. Ive called in three or four times to ask for support, and every time I've gotten someone on the phone instantly even at 4 in the morning!

I just recently also signed up on one of their reseller plans and am very happy with it. I've been telling all my friends about them, and thought the least I could do is share my experience with you guys.

Name of Web Hosting Company: Hostingplex

Address of Company: 150 Ferrand Dr, Toronto ON

Internet Address of Company: http://www.hostingplex.com

Pricing Plan Purchased: $7.45 a month Pro Plan

Comment about web hosting company: I signed on with Hostingplex.com and was amazed at the features and options you get for the price you pay.

There customer service was the best and had all my issues resolved within a couple of hours of purchasing my package.

They house their own data centers and use strictly IBM and Cisco products. This is good because I know my data is safe on their servers, and they promote 99.9% uptime gaurentee.

I give Hostingplex a 9.8 out of 10


 

Name of Web Hosting Company: Hostingplex.com

Address of Company: 150 ferrand drive, suite 1402, toronto, ontario M3C3E5, canada

Internet Address of Company: www.hostingplex.com

Pricing Plan Purchased: $9.95/mo 1 year contract, 6 months free

Comment about web hosting company: One of the many complications an online company experiences is the actual transfering of the site on to a new server. With hostinplex.com I found it as simple as one, two and three. I gave them the information along with my signal "go!" and they took the initiative of tranfering my website on to their servers. It required very little effort on my part. I was comfertable with the service knowing that I had a 14 day money back gaurantee as well as a "zero" set up fee. With $9.95 I got 350MB disk space, a 10,000MB monthly transfer, international domain support, unlimited pop3 accounts, a web based email and the best of all a 99.9% network uptime. Even during the blackout in all of southern ontario my site was up and running so that the international exposure that my business relies on was not effected.

Comment about web hosting company: I've had an account with Hostony for almost a year now, and I have found them to be reliable and helpful. The customer support will go above and beyond to help solve my problems, even if (as sometimes happens) they are of my own creation. The response time is excellent too. My site has experienced almost zero downtime. The prices are really unbelievable too. A lot of the other hosting companies I looked at wanted to charge me two or three times as much for the services I get from Hostony. I higtly recommend them!
