List Of Good Hosters With Good TELEPHONE Tech Support

May 6, 2008

I'd like to start an ongoing thread here listing the 'Good Hosters with Good TELEPHONE tech support'. In other words, out of the 1,000s of host companies, this may cut it down to less than a dozen.

( And for all you Hosters out there who really want your company to grow, and want to know how, - it's easy: just read here.)

Good telephone support is the #1 ultimate requirement, because:

-It's a lot faster and easier for both the user and the host company, because you can state and answer all questions and clarifications on the spot, you don't need to continually pass new emails with new questions and clarifications, back and forth for days on end, until the issue is solved. It saves tech time and user's time. And saves a lot of nerves.

- It's the best way to sort the good guys from the bad. A bad company isn't going to bother to answer the phone, - or will make you wait way too long, - because they are likely getting endless complaints. The good guys are always ready to answer the phones, with a friendly voice, - because they really WANT to please the customer.

- If a company can't be bothered to pick up the phone, we can't be bothered to even consider them. They're a joke, and so won't be listed here on this thread. (So, before adding or listing any Hosters here, please verfify that they do have Good, quick, friendly, telephone support,; ideally 24/7, but 9am to 10pm might be acceptable, if it was supplemented by some emergency contact.
AND:

- Hoster ALSO needs good EMAIL support (and preferably, Chat online, extended hour availability). (I spend a lot of time overseas). It sems all emails should get a non-automated response within about an hour, - and then support should jump on fixing any problem.

I only need support a few times a year. To answer some questions, or fix a problem, or do an install. That's lesss than 1 hour total, so any company paying maybe $18/hour tech support should be able to handle this. It IS reasonable to charge a custm for extended calls, beyond say, 90minutes a year, IF you don't count the 80%? Of times an issue is the Hoster;s fault of stmg gone wrong, and don't count the 'hold' times.

ALSO IMPORTANT:
- Uptime
- site Speeds
- Monthly plans, no contract (Only a dishonest host will try to force you into a contract, where they can then ignore you.)
- Reasonable price. (? Maybe $12 to $18/month for a basic business site. We don't need massive bandwitdths, - we all know that's an overselling scam, and can't ever be delivered.)
- a good upgrade plan of bigger options. Maybe even VPS.
- Dedicated IP, and availbility of SSL
-PHP 5, mysql, phpMyAdmin, etc
- cPanel ( Some Hosts are using problematic panels, like Hsphere, which are slow to load, slow in operation, require many more clicks, have too many options, spread apart on many separate pages. Time is money, and this really slows down the ability of a small business to manage his own site in effective time. For example, one WHT user wrote somewhere: "I don't feel that HSphere's interface is nice at all, although I have worked with cPanel and DA all my life... I just found it to include un-necessary features or split features up in to different hard to find pages, such as backups - mysql backups you had to find on a completely different page than file backups, and then there were options to have it in the home directory or server-end backup, in which then you had to wait a good 10 minutes before it was ready. cPanel, just hit backup and hit download and instantly it does everything you need...".

I have used several hosters. Currently on Aplus.net and Godad, which have phone support, and mediocre service.

My LIST So Far:
- Liquidweb: a very impressive company with good, 24 hour support. But to get dedicated IP, you need to go with their $25/month plan. Yikes!
- NewIdeaHosting.com. A very small company. My call was returned, and the owner chatted with me for an hour on the phone! Plans have small bandwidth, but promises No overselling, and personalized attention. Extra $5 for dedi IP. He specializes in Small business sites, and small eCommerce sites. He has only 250 accounts, on 3 servers. He rents servers from the Equinox data center of Chicago. Seems exceptionaly honest.
- MegaHosters. Excellent phone support and WHT reviews. But company was taken over by another company, and so may well go downhill in future. Another problem: uses Hsphere.
- Steadfast. Has a good rep on WHT, and seems impressive. Tech answered the phone immediately, but they say they prefer emails. Sales phone has limited hours. Good price on $20 SSL. But, uses Hshhere.
- JodoHost 24 hour phone. But, uses Hsphere. An Indian company with office in Florida, and good rep. I like the idea of outsourcing phone support, if it makes it more available and affordable. But, the accent on the phone was very hard for me to understand, so maybe this might not work.....
- Hostgator. Yes, it's a big overseller, but seems to get good reviews/results anyway, and good phone support.
- ? ThePrimeHost ?? Mostly good WHT reviews; some dissenters. Site says 24hour phone, but when I called on several nights, no one ever answered...
- Can anyone add to this list? Please list only hosts that meet the above minimum requirements of phone support, etc. Especially useful is hosters you've tried.
TO AVOID:
- Avoid Arvixe. I had a horrid experience with them, here: [WHT forum]:/showthread.php?p=5097822#post5097822
- Avoid WebHostingBuzz. This company never returned my phone msessage inquiries.

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 Godaddy.com 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:

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.

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 http://www.webhosting.uk.com/forums/network-status/4724-network-issue.html'
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 + Email Server

May 24, 2009

I am setting up a web server (2-3 websites, colo) but am wondering if setting up a mail server (IMAP/SMTP/Webmail for 4-5 mailboxes) alongside is a good practice?

Furthermore to my question, I only need SSL cert for email server and not for websites. Can this be done? Yes or no would be enough for now.

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.
