Blue Host And Host Monster Is Operated By The Same People

Aug 3, 2008

I was with Blue Host and their support and service was pretty bad. Servers going down all the time, and chat support was terrible. Then I moved to Host Monster and received the same kind of service/support. I later then figured out that Blue Host and Host Monster is runned by the same people. For example, I opened up a tech support ticket with Host Monster and then they replied signing their signature with Blue Host. So I got the same service: terrible tech support and servers kept going down. Now I'm looking for a new web hosting. I a few people here gave Host Gator some good reviews. I hope Host Gator is not run be the same people that runs Blue Host and Host Monster.

I have short-listed the hosting services I initially liked down to the following:

Is Blue Host Really Worth It

Dec 16, 2008

I wanted to reach out to WH Talk users and see what there experience with Blue Host has been like. I've heard some good things and some bad things about buying hosting for a blog on there website. I like that they have private domains names and give you unlimited hosting but is it really worth $6.95 per month.

I see a few other hosting companies that charge a little less but don't offer as much. Can anyone share there experience with this hosting service before I make a decision?

Yahoo! Vs. Blue Host

Dec 10, 2008

I am a hobbyist webmaster wanting to start a third website.

As a newbie, I started my website with Yahoo! Small Business. I didn’t know anything about hosting at that time and their ads captivated me. Also, there was confidence in dealing with a billion dollar company.

A couple of months later, when I started my second website I opted for Blue Host because I saw their ad on Word Press and I thought that anybody endorsed by WP would have to be good.

I am now in a position to compare and what I find is this:Yahoo!Cost$11.95 per monthEmails 250 in 24 hoursAdd-On Domains NilSupport Nil (only email)Fantastico Nil (Limited)Non-domain emailsNot permitted.htaccess Not allowedBlue HostCost $6.95 per monthEmails 500 per hour (12,000 in 24 hours)Add-On Domains UnlimitedSupport 24/7 live chatFantastico FullNon-domain emails Permitted.htaccess Allowed
Yahoo! has had its fair share of downtime (a fortnight ago there was a server 500 error which lasted several hours). Also some months ago some of my files were infected by a javascript virus (though this may have been my fault for uploading files without virus protection).

I am quite happy with BH because I am paying less, get unlimited add-on domains (I added four very easily) and get 24/7 chat support (with Yahoo! you only get an automated email response after 24 - 48 hours!)

It is said that you get what you paid for. I am paying Yahoo! more but what am I getting in return which I am not getting from BH?

Or to put it another way: Why would someone (reasonably instructed) opt for Yahoo! over BH and others?

Is Yahoo! just a rip-off or am I missing something here?

How To Keep Email On Current Host And Forward Http Traffic To New Host

Apr 11, 2008

I'm configuring a website for a client who has moved their web hosting to downtownhost, but is keeping their email hosting with their current provider. They do not want to configure an MX entry on DTH to autoforward email back to their current provider because they don't want their email to pass through DTH.

In order to do this, do I keep the nameserver entries on the current provider the same, and configure an http redirect to point to DTH? Or is there something else I should configure on the current provider?

How Important Is The Country The Host Is Based? Host Overseas?

May 21, 2009

I'm wondering if you can tell me something about your experience with a host/server in a different country or overseas.

My webpage will be mostly frequented by Australians.

What do you think is the advantage and the disadvantage of having a host in your own country and having one overseas?

I'm thinking about stability, traffic speed, peak hours in different time zones, customer service, ....

What are your experiences?

May 27, 2008

Host Gator Or Hawk Host

Jun 16, 2008

If you had to chose either Host Gator or Hawk Host which would you go with and why? Don't bring any other hosts into consideration just compare these two. This would be for a standard website, forum, and a few downloads if it makes a difference...nothing too fancy.

First Paid Host - Which Host To Chose

Dec 12, 2007

I have just made a personal website using photoshop, html, css and php. My site contains an index page, a gallery page with 8 photos, a contact page with a form and an extra page with some quotes. I am planning to use a paid host for the first time. Based on feedbacks from some of my sitepoint friends, I decided to go in for shared hosting. I thought of using as they have the option of a monthly billing cycle. I thought that I have the option of changing my host after a month if I am not happy with them. I have also read a lot about A lot of sitepoint members seem hooked to it.

1. Can anyone give an opinion as to which host I should go in for? Hostdogs also give a free domain. Is there any reason I should go in for Hostgator instead of Hostdogs?

2. One more question, I have heard that once I have a site running, I can earn money through the advertisements placed on it? How do I place advertisements on my site?

3. One last and very important question is whether it is right to go in for shared hosting at this point of time. I just read this


When you look for a suitable host, be sure to check out the amount of bandwidth that will be available to your site. Even a site that doesn't require a great deal of data transfer per month could run slowly if you're hosted on a shared server; particularly if you are on the same server as a more popular or bandwidth-intensive site.
The more sites hosted on a server, the more likely they are to compete with each other for available resources, including bandwidth. This is why you may notice a reduction in server response times during busy periods, or during a sudden peak in traffic at a busier site on a server that you share.

This made me wonder whether I should go in for shared hosting. But then mine is a personal home page which may not have so much of traffic.

4. What does the paragraph below mean? How does one handle ones registration manually?

Self-Management (no cost)
Select this option if you prefer to handle your registration manually.Your web host can establish service with any Top-Level Domain (TLD), international or domestic.

Windows Host Or Specialsit ASP Host

Dec 31, 2007

I will be setting up a site which uses ASP.NET 1.1. I know versions 3.0/3.5 are available, but they are not yet V2.0 compliant. Anyway thst is not the issue - just context.

Would like your advice as to whether it would be better to host this site with a company who looks as though they are specialising in ASP; such as DiscountASP, or Softsyhosting, or go with a general Windows hoster such as Steadfast, Fluidhosting, or 3Essentials?

I know nothing about ASP, so I don't know whether it is not at all neccessary to have a host specifically knowledgable about it, as I am unlikely to ever have problems with it, OR; I will most certainly have to address ASP issues sometime, so it would be essential to have support who really knows ASP.

Ubuntu Server Edition Compared To CentOS

Aug 23, 2008

I asked this question before in the past and I still have to ask it: has anyone used both Ubuntu Server Edition and CentOS? I would like to compare both operating system, in terms of speed, performance, security, and stability.

I have decided to build my new server and use Ubuntu Server Edition 64-bit operating system after using CentOS 64-bit operating system for a bit over a year now.

The reason why I have chosen to use Ubuntu Server Edition is because of the operating system's fabulous reputation among desktop PC users, and its large and helpful support community.

Support is what I need most, and Ubuntu seems to have it. I also am not the best with Linux yet, so it will definitely be needed. Ubuntu also seems to update its software faster than other operating systems.

I hope my decision to switch from CentOS 64-bit to Ubuntu Server Edition 64-bit will not be in vain.

Can anyone compare these two 64-bit operating systems and possibly link me to some reviews, comparisons, and/or benchmark results?

I have been with Blue Virtual ( for many years, since the Communitech days. However, the service these past few weeks has gone downhill big time.

The BV forums are dead, the webhosting is up and down like a yoyo, mail is intermittent.

Not just me but fellow users are experiencing the same.

Support tickets are going unanswered (accounts & tech. support).

Is Blue Square Now Getting Too Expensive

Apr 12, 2008

is Blue Square now starting to get too expensive for some if not most webhosts that dont already have a large customer base?

I can remember about 6 months or somthing back when rack space would to be around ~580 for 42u but now its at 700 thats with 8amps and no transit.

Bluesquare is known to be a very good and still is a nice alternative than london, however I think now london has become a cheaper alternative, what do you guys and gals think?

Yes I understand the need to charge more as the data centre fills up to capacity, and to pay for BSQ3-4 which are opening soon etc but im just curious about what do people think etc, im not having a moan they do and still do a brilliant service regardless of price.

What Do You Look For In A Web Host

Feb 10, 2009

I just want to ask the community of WHT a series of questions about shared and reseller hosting and what you would like out of a shared/reseller host.

What do you look for in a web host (in terms of shared and reseller hosting).

Do you prefer cheap "unlimited" and "unmetered" plans?

Would you like support through live chat, phone, or helpdesk?

What kind of price range would you consider reasonable for a shared hosting plan? a reseller plan?

Would a community forum with support staff and other clients be a plus to you?

Does the site's design and the software it utilizes be a concern to you?

In your opinion, what would make you choose a specific web hosting company over any other?

US Host In The UK

May 4, 2008

Is there any disadvantages to hosting on a US based host? When I'm currently in the UK, I'm planning on a website with a huge amount of content, and so far only the US hosts seem to offer enough bandwidth for the price? I've checked out a lot of UK Hosts but they all seem to be considerably lower than the US bandwidths.

Is This The Best Web Host In The UK

Sep 18, 2008

I have been with a lot of web hosting providers and I even gave my experiences a few days ago with heart internet, but 'JUST HOST' rocks!! Can you imagine, I tried calling them and lines were busy, and submiitted a form online asking them to call, and I was called in under 3 minutes. The servers are fast, I uploaded my entire website in a few minutes. And what they offer for 3.95p/m is just unbelievable.They even offer a free domain, but make sure you claim it at point of buying or you cannot do this after.

New VPS Host

Apr 25, 2007

I'm currently on a VPS server at JaguarPC. In 1 week time I upgraded my account from shared hosting, to semi-dedicated hosting and then to VPS because my script was affecting other users on the server. I always thought that a VPS is like a server. With this I mean that I thought that I will be the only one affected if my scripts are using too many resources. But I was just informed by JaguarPC that users on a VPS server can affect each other.

I'm currently looking around to see if there are any reliable VPS host out there where my performance is not affected by my neighbors, and the performance of my neighbors not affected be me? Are there VPS hosts like this out there?
