    Hosting


    Hey Everyone,
    I'm looking for a new hosting company, the last one I hosted went out of business and I've been using them for a few years, so now I'm on the market for a new hosting company.
    I saw a few out there such as hosting24.com, HostMonster.com, BlueHost.com, HostGator.com, MediaTemple.net.
    I did some research and found out that hosting24 ranks #1, and is the best hosting company to go with. is this true? has anyone used them? your thoughts on them.
    Which do you think is best or is there any others that you would suggest?
    I'm looking for something with CPanel,
    something cheap or under $20,
    around 2GB of space,
    good or excellent tech support etc...

    any help would be much appreciated! Thanks in advance!

    99% of the "Ranks" you find online are either based off of one persons opinion or the rank is paid for by the company, unless the ranking comes from an unbiased 3rd party company, and even then they only compare the biggest and largest. Alot of the time the reviews are from very simple people that use their hosting to host a 15mb blog with 3 visitors a day or something, so it trully doesn't give you a good review on true technical support and reliability.

    Even on this forum there are the same old companies that will try to scramble any customer without even looking at the customers request, I can gurantee you after this post there will be 3-4 people that just post a link to a webhosting company and will say "they are great" without reading anything or trying to meet your requirements (even if your requirements are minimal)

    Reason why I say this is not to discourage you in picking any of these companies, but before you pick one and give them their money, see if they will give you the time of day you want. Talk with them, see if they truly care about you as a customer or if you are just another sale on their books. I gurantee your hosting experience will be alot better and you will get taken care of.

    So with that said, We at StealthyHosting would love to have you as a customer, our Basic Silver package should fit you nicely for $11.95.

    Basic Silver $11.95
    • 2000Mb Diskspace
    • 80GB Bandwidth
    • 99.9% Uptime Guarantee
    • cPanel / Fantastico
    • Unlimited MySQL Databases

    Our support is Ticket/Email based 24/7 and Phone 9-7 m-s. We would be glad to help you with any technical problems you have, including 3rd party software if we can help.

    Feel free to PM me or email Sales at StealthyHosting.com if you have any questions for us.

    Biggest difference is our servers are not oversold. Many of these companies offer "Unlimited" packages. Truth is a hard drive can only hold so much data... and when they put 1000 customers on a server with only a 1TB NAS, the math comes out to less than 1GB per customer truthfully...

    When you pay for 2GB diskspace you can use all 2GB and comfortably know we will not suspend your account for "using too much resources"(Look in all the terms of service for "Unlimited" accounts, you will see a line saying they can suspend you for using too much resources at their discretion).

    Our uptime is great, our support is fast and helpful, and we value our customers as a small business should.

    Another thing you wont see in alot of hosting companies is that we are a real corporation in the USA. You can see our Corporation information here: http://www.sos.wa.gov/corps/search_detail.aspx?ubi=602920490

    Also all of our packages come with a FREE .com, .net, .biz, .org, .info Domain name. However since you probably already have domain names, if you don't need another we will gladly give you 10% off instead of the domain name.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Hi Mike,

    I would suggest you pick up a few web hosts and to send them requests. This will allow you to test their response time and to find out how friendly is their customer support. When it comes to Shared Hosting I shall admit that it is not that hard to provide stable service... even if many companies fail to do this.

    I don't think there is a such a ranking for the web hosts. I think you have referred some Top Ten review sites to get this information. That may not be reliable information as said already. From your list one which is having good reviews over all is hostgator. You can research more by finding reliable reviews. Best of luck.

    this is oversold, the person is looking for none oversold,

    to be ableto get 100gb hdd you have to pay for it,
    look for hosts that offer like 500mbs, or 1-2gbs
    normaly these wont be oversold,

    many thanx

    I agree totally with fcolor. Try contacting a company you are interested in doing business with and see what kind of response you get. Are they courteous? Are they knowledgable?

    This will help you better judge a better hosting company than any ranking site out there.

    Hope to hear from you.

    Justify the following carefully when you are going to choice a web hosting company for your website’s host. Some of the major aspects include:
    1. Pricing
    2. Proximity
    3. Facility features
    4. Business reputation
    5. Network expandability
