Latest Review For NameCheap Hosting

Oct 22, 2008

I'm considering switching hosting to NameCheap to save some money over my current hosting plan. I've never had a problem with their registrar service. I did a search for reviews on their hosting service. There were some negative ones a few years back when they were selling PeopleHost hosting, but they apparently have their own hosting now.

I found a few posts with issues, but there always has to be a few. However, if 3 of 10 customers have problems, it's a lot different than if 3 of 10,000 customers have problems. Anyone have an idea of how many sites they host?

Also, what's the latest word from people using their hosting services? Any good? How about response time and up time?

Anyone Using Namecheap Hosting

Nov 19, 2008

I signed up for namecheap hosting for 1 month just to check how good they are. I hosted my banners site over there {snip} and it is opening OK.

I was wondering who else is using their hosting from this forum?

I saw a thread on WebHostingTalk about namecheap hosting and the members who participated there are very satisfied with the hosting but when I asked about it on DP forum the members were just against of it. According to them Namecheap is good only for domains not for hosting.

Would you like to share your experience (if you have used namecheap hosting)?

Namecheap Hosting

Sep 2, 2008

I recently started using NameCheap.com for shared hosting. It's only $3/month.

They have fairly fast download speeds (like if I download a big picture from my own website).

But their "processing" speed seems a little slow? I'm not sure, because this is new to me and I have nothing to compare it with. But if I look at a page that uses WordPress where the server is being asked to look up stuff from the SQL databases and form the html on the run, it seems to not be very responsive sometimes - to load the posts that have a certain category associated with it, it sometimes takes 3 seconds to load after clicking, sometimes 7 seconds. Not very scientific I know, and there's other factors, but just to give an idea.

For $3/month, I guess I shouldn't complain. But if I choose to give my readers (my parents and my one friend) a better browsing experience, would I get better response times by paying a bit more?

Anyone have experience with namecheap? I've also considered GoDaddy, but don't like their advertising strategy. Makes me feel like a high schooler.

I should also ask - how's the webmail service on other shared hosting companies? Namecheap's webmail is really really slow. Ok, $3/month isn't much, but the webmail is much slower than my website. Is that "normal"?

What About Namecheap Web Hosting

Aug 13, 2008

Namecheap has a good reputation for domain registration, but I am finding it hard to find reviews about their Web Hosting. From their own description, their data center looks good and reliable and their packages seem feature filled.

An alternative for me is A Small Orange web hosting.

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:

Quote:

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 92.48.193.58 and similar?

When I said yes, I was sent this reply:

Quote:

Hello,

IP 92.48.193.58 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:

Quote:

+--------------------

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 hauntedlights.com, obviously a really exploitable site. It's about haunted lighthouses.

Is Namecheap A Good Choice For Me

Mar 31, 2009

I am a little upset because I host my forum and other sites on my friend's server who has dedicated server, but now he is closing his hosting business

My forum opens very fast with his servers but now I have to go to somewhere else, I just contacted Namecheap and asked if I can host my little-busy forum there or not on their shared hosting package.

They will reply me but I want to know your advices too about Namecheap. Is it good choice to host a VBulletin forum on shared hosting from Namecheap?

Or I should buy their Business Hosting Package?

I don't want to buy VPS or Dedicated Server because I don't have much knowledge of hosting and I have heard that VPS and Dedicated servers are very difficult to manage for person like me

Latest Version Of APF

Jun 4, 2008

I noticed when installing latest version of APF 0.9.6.3 over the previous version 0.9.6.2 it will import all the variable and ports settings from conf.apf and allow_hosts.rules files of the previous version. so there will be no need to edit or configure any thing any more when upgrading APF exept setting DEVEL_MODE to 0 and restart APF.

MonkeyWrench Hosting Review - Three Year Review

Dec 15, 2008

MonkeyWrench Hosting review - Three year review

I've been hosting my personal sites with MonkeyWrench Hosting for around three years now (coming up in January I believe), and I figured I'd share my experiences with them!

I've gone through a few hosts in my time, and some of them have been pretty rough. After using paid hosts, a niche free host started up that I stayed with for around a year before they eventually closed down.

I switched to MonkeyWrench Hosting at that point as a place to host my sites and store my files, and I have to say that I've been impressed throughout the time I've been with them.

Uptime/speed:
Fantastic! The sites have been perfectly reliable and speedy whenever I've gone to access them, and I haven't had any complaints from users. I did come across MySQL going down on one of the servers (I have two accounts for different purposes that are on seperate servers) in the past, but it was resolved quickly before I even needed to get help.

Support:
I've used the support a few times, but not for anything critical since there's not been the need. However, everything that I have asked was answered promptly in a professional manner.

Pricing:
Again, no complaints here. The pricing is pretty cheap, especially for the quality of service receieved. They aren't the cheapest on the Internet by any means, but you generally get what you pay for. I'm aware of what my realistic space/bandwidth needs are anyway, and I'd rather pick a host that clearly advertises what you'll receive over an 'unlimited' host.

All in all, MWH have been a fantastic choice and I couldn't have hoped for anything better.

So, thumbs up to Jonathan, and keep up the good work!

I'll report my domains for the moderators to check them out. =)

Hosting Review Site Or Top 3 Hosting Co. For Shared Hosting

Apr 23, 2009

I'm trying to find at least three web hosting companies to choose from to host a Joomla websites on a shared server. Would consider dedicated if the deal was right. I have a friend of mine who wants to create a church website, and is looking for the best deal. I use Netfirms which I have never had an issue with, but I didn't want to be bias, and would like give him other options to choose from.

Is there a good WebHosting Review site, I could check out, or maybe someone could recommend their top three. I reading threw the forums here and I noticed there are not that many complaints with Hostgator. Again, I just want to see if there was anything out there better.

Upgrade To Exim Latest Version

Jul 30, 2008

SecurityMetrics has determined that we are not COMPLIANT with the PCI scan validation requirement for our server.

The remote host is running a version of the Exim MTA which is vulnerable to several remote buffer overflows. Specifically, if either 'headers_check_syntax' or 'sender_verify = true' is in the exim.conf file, then a remote attacker may be able to execute a classic stack- based overflow and gain inappropriate access to the machine. *** If you are running checks with safe_checks enabled, this may be a false positive as only banners were used to assess the risk! *** It is known that Exim 3.35 and 4.32 are vulnerable. Solution: Upgrade to Exim latest version Risk Factor: High

HOW DO i Upgrade to Exim latest version? I am on WHM/Cpanel 11 (centos 5) I never did this before.

How To Solve Problems With Latest RPMs

Mar 12, 2007

I am trying to install some packages on my system and sometimes they depend on different, sometimes earlier, sometimes later versions of library packages on my system.

In that situation is it better to get the source for the package and recompile it with what you have on your system?

I am assuming that the dependent libraries the packages where compiled with were what was available on the package developer's system and do not necessarily contain new features lacking in the older versions.

Will recompling such packages from the source rpms fix the problems in most cases?

One particular group I persistently come across is the libcX.so libraries.

In Search For Host With Latest PHP/mySQL Versions.

Jul 16, 2007

I'm desperately trying to find a hosting service that offers Linux hosting with latest versions of php (5.2.x), mySQL (5.1) and maybe CVS or SVN?

Space or bandwidth are not an issue (500mb space will be more than I'll ever need)

This will mainly will be a development/testing place.
I really need a host that actually updates to latest versions of php/mysql/apache.
(not the next day the upgrade is out but some time soon at least >_<)

Things like CVS / SVN, SSH access and access to change your own php.ini settings are more than welcome but I could live without.
