VPS With GlowHost

May 11, 2008

I've been searching for a while for a solution to my hosting issues. I went from looking for a good shared host to a good reseller host to now (after talking with a wonderfully helpful person at GlowHost) looking at their VPS hosting.

My plan is to start with their smallest VPS plan, move up as I need more resources, and eventually move to a fully managed dedicated server when I feel confident I can afford it. (HOPEFULLY without much disruption to my clients.......)

With their VPS, it seems like I can have the brandable cPanel that I get with the reseller account, with the addition of more control over things like email attachment filtering (a big sticking point that I've been trying to work around with a lot of hosts) and root access, so I can have the same control as I would on a dedicated server, with them there to help if something breaks or if something needs to be patched. (My admin isn't the type to break things, but I'm trying to save him from 3a "my site isn't responding" phone calls.) And from what I can tell, my clients will get all of the features of the shared hosting (POP/IMAP, Fantastico, etc.) but with me in control of things like space and bandwidth? (They make a huge point of how a VPS account can be used easily as a reseller account. Is the same true of the dedicated server?) I know there are GlowHost people on here, so if I'm assuming anything incorrectly, feel free to let me know. :-)

Along with pricing I can afford and prompt, polite, informative replies to the questions I had, I've been searching all morning and having found a single bad thing said about GlowHost. So have I struck gold, or is there anyone on here who feels they could talk me out of it? I always like to look at bad reviews when evaluating a company/product to see if any of the problems are anything I actually consider problems. I'm not used to finding so few bad comments. I've never really considered VPS hosting until yesterday, so if there are any more questions I should be asking (either here or to them), feel free to let me know!

Anyone have some experience with them?

I am looking for a reliable host, their budget 3 star seems perfect for what I want.

I have looked at hostgator, and don't like that their cheapest plan only allows 1 domain, and requires 3 year contract to get the listed price.

So I guess all I really need is a great connectivity and uptime, ~$5/month and allows multiple domains. Don't need much else.

From JaguarPC (1+ Year) To GlowHost (just Started) - My Experience And Reviews So Far

Jun 12, 2009

I've been with JaguarPC for over a year. I hosted two sites, one on VPS, another on semi-dedicated. I had to give up VPS after a couple of months when it turned out it was impossible to upgrade my operation system despite several attempts.

Today I'm canceling the second site on semi-dedicated server even though at first it was good (and cheap compared others). Unfortunately, over time the server was getting less and less reliable, there were frequent outages and connection problems. It seemed I was usually the first one to spot the problem and I opened a ticket; one of them had a dozen or so replies as I would post almost every day that the site was down or slow. So I had to leave this semi-dedicated too.

JaguarPC positives:

despite server performance issues, they have fast and friendly support; I liked to work with these guys and they showed patience. They even offered me free upgrade on VPS to a better operational system, but I chose to move on to try other waters

they were flexible enough to install software I needed without problems

JaguarPC negatives:

server problems, probably some overselling and/or not enough attention to the bad guys with buggy or heavy websites

Now I moved to and pay over two times as much for a semi-dedicated server. Here are my first impressions:

server seems OK so far,

support - they are also fast (probably even faster than JPC), even though they seem not to be as flexible as JaguarPC regarding installation of common software. For example, I asked them to install zlib to use gzip compression, but they said they know better and gzip compression is not something that would benefit my site and I would have to move to a dedicated server to have it installed (?). I was a little surprised since even some regular shared hosts have zlib library installed and I would think a semi-dedicated server (with no more than 30 domains on the server as it's possible to host only one domain and considering the price) should be treated as something more than just a shared server and users who choose semi-dedicated server actually do it to improve performance over shared server.

Either way, I'll see how it goes later; as long as the server is stable and fast I guess I shouldn't complain.

Basic Webhosting

Mar 24, 2009

I am planning to host my personal website which will be a bunch of static pages for the time being with the possibility of moving to PHP/Pearl CMS later.

For this, I think that a basic hosting plan of about .5-1GB space and 5-10GB bandwidth would be well enough.

Can you please suggest me a host which would cost around 2-3$/month and has a moderately good service? I came across companies like Umbrahosting and HostPC which are cheap. Do you have anything to say about them?

Moreover, some hosts give combo offers of webspace+domain registration. Is it wise to register the domain through the host or to register it separately through godaddy etc?

Thawte SSL And Webhosting

Jan 4, 2009

I am currently hosted at by a webhotel that does not offer SSL security.

I have purchased a Thawte SSL123 certificate which I need to have installed on my webhost due to security while handling online payments.

What is required is the ability to setup subdomains. Some hosted exchange would be good as well, as to running a smallsized business.

which webhost I could move?

Would it be possible to use and install the Thawte SSL certificate on their hosting?

How about the requirements for setting up a secure webserver by yourself? Prices for the hardware/software etc.?

Don't Use Namecheap Webhosting

Mar 17, 2008

I've just received my second suspension from them, for having 5 visitors on my website, which was abuse of their resources.

I had issues with them last month, they claimed I was using too much resources and had to upgrade to Business class. I've paid for two years there as it is.

Every time I would get these notices, I'd work with them and it was found that one comment bot was hitting my site repeatedly (one post several times in a row which really shouldn't cause any problems anyway) and would cause things to raise. In their email, their support said:


Your account is unsuspended now. Please check and prevent future overloads.
Also we can block ip addresses of your referrals, when all connections is from one ip instead of suspending your account. Should we block and similar?

When I said yes, I was sent this reply:



IP blocked in our firewall. We'll act similar way, when your account will be leeched from one IP. Now this ticket is being closed.

So tonight, I redo a post, since their hotlink protection isn't stopping hits on the photo being linked to, which involved uploading an image and deleting the old, and shortly thereafter I get this:


Dear Customer,

We have suspended your account due to resource abuse. Please find the related information below:

| 306259 | username_wrdp2 | localhost | username_wrdp2 | Sleep | 50092 | | |

All of them supposedly me. But at any rate, only 5 users at namecheap can apparently bring about a suspension. I have never in my life had such treatment by a host. Most of the site is a static site, where most people land. And this is for less than 50 people on a daily basis.

They may have a good reputation as a domain reseller (yes, they're now ICANN registrars, but they haven't switched over yet, they're still reselling for Enom) but they had better rethink their webhosting.

People I know who have WordPress pages at places like Dreamhost, Lunarpages, all the rest have way more traffic than I do and yet they don't have these problems. I'm just sick at they way I've been treated there.

Whatever you do, don't host with namecheap. I'm truly sorry I did. And if anyone wants to verify that I host with them, it's, obviously a really exploitable site. It's about haunted lighthouses.

WebHosting UK - Unbelivable

Dec 28, 2008

I have been with web hosting talk for just this month and in the past 8 days I have had down time at least 1 everyday for around 2-3 hours. I just contacted the VPS support to see why I am not even able to start the server using Virtuozzo Control Panel and this is what they said:

'We are facing a network issue at the moment. Our engineers are aware of this problem. Efforts are on to restore service at the earliest. We apologise for the inconvenience.'
And then I ask them the simple question, Why was I not informed about all this downtime and errors on the system - This is what he said to me:

'We have already posted this on our forum. You can have a look at'
So I say to him:

'So I get expected to look at your forums every time I have downtime or any problems with the network'

'I think this will be the last month of me paying for this server.'
Then he says: 'No every time but if there is any major issues, we always keep posted on our forums.'

Webhosting Provider Pointers

May 11, 2009

For the last few years I have run my own webserver from home for personal uses(I'm on an 'always on' dsl cable provider in the UK and using dyndns to get around being on dhcp). I have always resisted hosted services in the past as however, after a recent fatal hard drive crash am considering moving to hosted providors instead. As its for personal use (photo album, personal website etc) I dont want to spend too much (considering 3-5 a month), my requirements would be:

1. needs php
2. mysql
3. ssh
4. ftp
5. space - will be storing photos etc, so initially maybe 500mb

Imagine my surprise when i started seeing many 'unlimited' data transfer offers. I was impressed looking at JustHosts, but after digging around found they oversell, (don't they all) but have created their own review sites and list themselves at the top!

For personal usage would these 'unlimited' data transfers offers still be a good one? I just need something that will stay up, with reasonable access time for visitors.

I cant find any details on backups in general - is it a done thing where data backup of the web site / data is your own responsibility?

Webhosting Solely For Hotlinking

Feb 15, 2009

I am a graphic designer/photographer who creates designs for music artists, producers etc. on Myspace (I know, I know). This obviously involves lots of hotlinking, and that is why I am here.

I provide customers with hosting for their layouts so that they don't have to go out and search for one. I am currently hosting the images on a friends private server, but it's fairly slow and I want something more reliable. One layout usually has around 20 different images (background, headers, banners, etc) and I try to make sure it comes out to a little under 1MB, so I don't need to worry that much about disk space. I'd say bandwidth might be the only issue if anything.

I enjoy the work but it's mostly a side business and doesn't create much revenue, so I'm trying to go for around or under $10 a month. That said, I also want to make sure things are fast enough for the visitors and am willing to up the budget if required. I was going to go with 1and1 or Hostgator but heard alot about overselling.

Webhosting In A VMware Viable

Apr 3, 2008

I have a mid end Windows 2003 server that I use to host a game. I've been pondering on setting up VMware with a Linux VM and host my sites on it, and possibly other people's site. (start it as a mini private web host if my sites go well).

Just wondering if anyone has done this before and whether or not it sounds like it would work or not. I'm basically trying to downsize as I'm living at home and saving up for a house. I'm paying 20/mo on webhosting so figured if I move my websites and possibly resell a bit of space I could try make up for my server cost. If it worked out then I'd probably get another server to seperate it.

My biggest concern is how to backup my webhost if I sell that service, but I'd worry about it at that point. For now I'd do only my own sites. I'm estimating around 300-400k page views per month. Nothing super huge but still decent amount of traffic.
