My 5 Year Review Of Powweb

Oct 19, 2007

I have had several accounts with Powweb for 5 years now and I thought I would write a brief review of them:


I originally went with Powweb 5 years ago based off of a referral from a friend. At the time, the “shared hosting environment” isn’t quite what it is today. For the first several years, I experienced trouble free hosting (for the most part) and truly felt as though I was “getting what I paid for.”

Powweb, back then, was a privately owned company based out of California ( I believe) and I usually got the impression that most of their employees truly cared about their customers and the quality of service they provided. What made them semi-unique at the time, was that they offered only a “one plan solution” (they didn’t offer multiple plan types) and the simplicity of their business model worked well for most.

Powweb was also unique in that they offered community forums which were pretty “open” and it truly allowed customers to discuss problems and issues with one another. A few years ago, they transitioned from private dedicated servers to a clustered environment and that did bring along some hard time, but they got it under control eventually. Overall, I was satisfied with the service.


A year or so ago Powweb was bought-out by Endurance. If you do not know anything about Endurance, they are a very large web-hosting company which has acquired several other large shared-hosts over the past few years.

Once Powweb was purchased by Endurance, the quality in service immediately decreased. Part of what Endurance does with most of their acquisitions is to assimilate them into their fold. This was a very shaky process and nearly everyone experience a large amount of downtime.

Additionally, Powweb is now plagued by horrible MySQL issues where the service is nearly completely useless. For the past year, Powweb has been either unable or unwilling to fix these issues. It can often take several minutes for even the most basic of queries to run. Any dynamic type of an application: forums, blogs, CMS, are usually rendered completely useless.

To make matters worse, Powweb continues to aggressively advertise these resource heavy applications and then ask for patience as they attempt to get their issues fixed. It has been about a year now, and still it is not resolved. Much of these issues come from the extreme overselling that Powweb does. Nearly every day, all websites (even static ones) come to a complete crawl.

Calling customer support is also a waste of your time. 95% of the time, you are met by a rude person who simply tells you “well, it seems to work for me” or that “we are aware of the problem” (at best). Opening support tickets is also usually not helpful. Tickets are often closed without any contact with the customer and it is very common for them to “give you the run-around.”

I have been told by support several times to keep an eye on the forums for updates on issues and whatnot. Then, if you go to the forums and attempt to get any information from there, you are told that ‘these are only user-helping user forums’ and that you can’t get any official help there, though customer support told you to go to that very place. Additionally, Powweb’s staff practices extreme censorship of the forum and it is common for negative remarks to be removed or posts completely deleted, many times without any acknowledgement of the act.

In addition to the MySQL issues, Powweb also experiences frequent “lock-ups,” CGI issues, email issues, dns issues, and so on and so forth. The list of problems that has occurred over the past year is literally too long to remember.

In conclusion, the Powweb of new is nothing like the Powweb of old. This new Powweb is controlled by an over-selling giant (Endurance) that is only concerned with the number of accounts as apposed to the quality of service. While certainly any business related site should not be in such an environment at all, I would even suggest that people looking for a host for hobby related purposes stay clear of powweb – it’s that bad.

Powweb Raises Rates

Jul 23, 2008

Even though it is not mentioned anywhere on their web site, powweb billed me $8.77/mo instead of the advertised $7.77. I asked about this in their forum and that << removed >> Ian promptly deleted my post. Has anyone else heard about this?

Powweb Charging Loyal Customers More...

Jul 11, 2008

Powweb's regular monthly charge is $7.77... Long term customers have been paying this for years, and it's still the price listed on their main page. It's even the price new customers will pay...

However, existing customer for some reason now have to pay the undocumented price of $8.77 a month.

Way to treat your existing customers! Charging them more for no reason other than they've been loyal!

FatCow, Dot5, PowWeb, IPower: One In The Same!

Aug 5, 2008

I found out today that FatCow, Dot5 Hosting, PowWeb, and iPower Hosting are all part of the smae hosting conglomerate. The parent company is called Endurance International Group. It seems that the companies have gone out of their way to make their connections unpublished, which is very misleading to their customers. However, I recognized some similarities of their websites, and spoke with a representative over the phone who admitted that they were all connected. There are probably other companies too, but they wouldn't give out any more info.

Problem With Files Owned By 'nobody' When Uploaded

Aug 4, 2007

I used to have my apache 1.3.37 with PHP compiled as a CGI. Whenever i have a php script (say vbulletin forum software) that allow file uploads, files will be uploaded with the correct userid and groupid on the server. However, once i compiled PHP as ISAPI module, the files will be uploaded but will be owned by 'nobody'. Of course i can log in as root and chown it back to the right user, but it's a hassle if there are multiple user accounts on the server and they're using php software on their end. If someone is using an ftp program and tries to overwrite that uploaded file that's owned by nobody, it will not let them do so. Is there a way to fix this, or change the config files that would fix it?

Hosting For Music And Video That Is Owned But Copyright Protected

Feb 5, 2009

have built quite a library of music now. It would be great if I could upload music to my hosting account, and then just access it from my phone. Would that be allowed so long as I did not share this music with others? Where might I be able to set this up? I checked with hostgator and they said it was not okay.

PHP Permissions (file Owner)

Nov 24, 2008

I have setup an ftp user which can upload files to /home/ftp/upload and obviously it assigns the ftp user as the owner when it uploads. Now, I want PHP to be able to rename those files, but getting a permission denied, presumably because apache aint the owner or doesnt have permission to do that, so how do I grant it the right permission(s)?

Owner: What Is Your TOS Regarding Unlimited Features

Dec 16, 2008

After my bad experience regarding unlimited features on this link: [url]

I tried to search some of webhosting provider tos regarding their unlimited bandwidth and space. Here one of the tos: (sorry, I hide the name).Unmetered Bandwidth Policy
The purpose of the ********* unmetered bandwidth policy is to assure owners of standard operating web sites and small businesses that they will not be surprise billed for bandwidth usage. It is one less thing someone will need to worry about while hosting their web site at *********. The ********* unmetered bandwidth policy does not cover certain web sites.

These include the following:

* Web Portals/Communities/Forums - Any sites that have members and/or forums.
* Online Gaming - Includes online casinos and single/multiplayer online games.
* Image Galleries - Includes eBay or other online auction image dumps.
* Downloads - Any site that prompts for a download or has large applets.
* Audio/Video - Any streaming content, web-cams or audio/video downloads.
* Chat - Includes PHP and Java chat rooms. CGI-based chat is not allowed on our servers.

If you are planning on using our servers to host one of these sites, ********* will allow for 50 GBs of transfer per month. You will be billed $10.00/10 GBs/mo thereafter.

All other accounts for personal and small business are allowed unmetered bandwidth. If you adhere to our Terms and Conditions of Use Policy and run a standard web site, you will be covered under the unmetered bandwidth policy. (99.9% of all ********* hosted web sites currently qualify for their unmetered bandwidth usage.) Accounts that do not follow our Terms and Conditions of Use policy are classified as metered bandwidth accounts and will be billed accordingly.

Unmetered Web Space Policy
********* customers are privileged to be offered unmetered web space for their sites on certain plans. ********* will start you out with 1000 MBs of space. Once you approach 90% of its use, simply request additional space from Support. ********* will then add another 1000 MBs of space, free of charge. You can continue this process until you no longer require additional space. The intent of ********* is to provide a large amount of web space to serve web documents, not an off site storage area for electronic files or a backup of your PC. Ninety Percent (90%) of your web pages (html, etc.) must be linked with files (.GIF, .JPEG, etc.) stored within your space, hosted on a ********* server.

Web sites that are found to contain either/or no html documents, a large number of unlinked files, will not be offered any additional web space under our Unmetered Web Space Policy.

Read the tos carefully, it can be tricky right? So if your the owner of webhosting provider that give unlimited bandwidth and space.. what is your TOS?
