Uber Thread On Web Host Reviews

Apr 15, 2008

As you can imagine it is daunting trying to filter out the reviews of various webhosts on this forum. For someone who has not ruled out any webhost for hosting his business website, the time it takes to do appropriate research can be very time consuming.

I was wondering if there was some meta/uber thread that has a bunch of webhosts on it with a general rating for the host, maybe a "percentage approved" scale or something.

Or am I resigned to reading a bunch of threads?

Uber Bandwidth For Colocation?

Sep 2, 2009

We're based out of Columbus Ohio, and we're now interested in making the leap from leased to colocation.

After searching around, we found some relatively expensive colocation providers which made us second guess even going with colocation because we feel the whole point of colocation is cutting costs over time and giving yourself more access to the servers yourself.

We've almost decided on uberbandwidth. Mouth watering cheap bandwidth, yet it seems as if they offer a quality network.

I of course did a search on WHT on uberbandwidth and could only find anything really on them till late 2008. Our understanding is that uberbandwidth is a division of a much larger and long established company, Netriplex LLC.

I am simply trying to get peoples opinion on Uberbandwidth. I think the pricing they quoted us for was very fair for 3 1U servers to start. They provided proof that their network is rock solid with uptime displays over a period of time. They also have the backing of a larger parent company. Just looking to possibliy get peoples first hands experience with Uberbandwidth. Obviously our first adventure into colocation, we do NOT want to get burnt. We don't want to send $10,000 of equipment to a provider who forgets to pay their power bills and are simply evicted to have our servers thrown out in the middle of the road.

1 Website, 2 Host Reviews! HawkHost And IGXHost

Oct 23, 2009

Didn't think this would be possible, did you?

So, I switched off of one of my providers for my website about a month and a half ago (I won't mention their name). From my previous host I switched to HawkHost.

HawkHost was amazing throughout our entire month and a half stay. When we first went to them, they converted one of our domains into a subdomain and transferred all of the files for us and did a tremendous amount of extra work they didn't have to do. They were quick at responding and their servers were blazing fast. Unfortunately, they had to pack up our stuff for us and we had to leave due to a DDoS attack. But they didn't kick us out before trying some measures first to help prevent the DDoS attack. During the attack, my website still remained online and a lot of the traffic was being thrown out by the security measures they put in place for me for free. But the attack got through those security measures after 24 hours and took down their servers. Even after we left, the IP was still getting hit and they had to null-route the IP address. We do thank HawkHost for attempting to stop it, and we do not hold any grudges, infact we're very thankful they did what they did for us!

Overall Experience with HawkHost.com:
Support : 10/10
Network Speed : 10/10
Uptime (for the month and a half we were there : 10/10
Willingness to help : 10/10

Now! After HawkHost confirmed the attack has stopped, we set our website at a different host. I hope it doesn't get attacked again, because switching hosts isn't the top item on my Fun things to do this Friday. We switched to IGXHost.com

Our current experience (only been 24 hours):
Great support, we ordered in the middle of the night and they transferred our account within an hour! (It's not a small account either). The staff was very helpful and quick to respond which is amazing because it was 1AM. (HawkHost answered in the middle of the night too). Not really sure about anything else except their support, I will update you guys! But so far IGXHost and HawkHost are about the same quality in support (exceptional!).

Anyways! I'll keep you guys updated.

We here at Data Host Direct would like to thank the staff at IGXHost and HawkHost.

Mysql Thread Concurency Under Virtuozzo

May 8, 2007

What factors do I need to look at in determining the proper setting for thread_concurrency in my.cnf running on a virtuozzo VPS? Processor threading as per usual or barrier values under /proc/user_beancounters?

I commented it out entirely a while back because I was I was hitting the privmpages limit. I forgot about it because I'd been having acceptable performance. Now it it's occurring to me that I could maybe slowly take it back up.

Canonical Phpinfo() Link Thread

May 27, 2008

I find that lots of hosts don't put the link to a phpinfo() script on their websites, even though that would save everyone a lot of unnecessary questions.

So I figure we should have a thread where people can add links to phpinfo scripts on their own hosts, or hosts where they happen to have the URL of a phpinfo script.

For those of you who own your own web hosting services, here's a chance to show off all your installed goodness, and all it takes is placing a simple link here (and put one in your FAQ section on your web site too, for the love of God)..

Since the forum doesn't allow editing your own posts (I still think that is nuts), please include all previous links in your post, so visitors will only need to read the LAST post to find all the updated links in one place.

Limit Apache (thread) Connections Per Request

Jan 9, 2007

I've been having trouble the past few days with someone who's been "attacking" my site so to speak by continuously downloading very large files with as many connections as (he) can open. I operate a large downloads site for computer games, this person has selected the largest files (like 400-500MB). Not sure of the real intent other than to clog up my bandwidth capacity. Also he appears to be using proxies since as soon as I ban one, another shows up seeminly from China.

Anyway, I have mod_bw and I've limited the number of connections in the downloads area to 2. While that works ok, his tool uses threads like a download manager would and he's using up 30-40 child threads for his 2 file downloads.

So 2 questions,

Is there anyway to not only limit file downloads to 2, but limit the number of connections per request? Many of my visitors do use download managers and I'd like for them to continue using them but use a reasonable number of threads like 6 or 8, but not 30.

Also, is there a way to restrict access to someone using a proxy?

Ovh.co.uk Reviews

Nov 18, 2008

i found a nice ovh server which is a quad core with 8 gb of ram on a 1 GBps port. I saw a few reviews and i heard people say that they will lower your speed or something. What i need to host is a game server which uses a lot of upload. At least 10 mbps at MOST excluding users that have to download a 5 mb file. Perhaps if i tested my upload on speedtest.net if i had a ovh server that is on a 1 gbps port. What would the upload be?

Midphase Reviews?

Jun 13, 2006

Anyone here used Midphase? Over at WHT you can find as many negatives as positives for almost anyone you chose. Anyone at Sitepoint used them? I'm very cautious about switching and have checked into several web hosts. I would stick with the one I have now, but server load spikes seem to come at the worst times and stay around for hours.

ASmallOrange.com - Reviews

Nov 6, 2009

I'm with ASmallOrange ( ASO - www.asmallorange.com ) already for more than one year. I have to say I have been very happy with the quality and service I have received.

Server is very reliable. Yes, I encountered some issue months ago, because some DNS attack and password issue on ASO's staff, but they handle the situation very good and they was honest about it.

Their support is fantastic. Actually, I seldom contact support since everything is okay, but when I did, their reply is fast and prompt.

They have good and active community forum.

Their price is reasonable. Yes, ASO do not offer "unlimited" but their prices compared to quality is okay.

Since it is required, my site with ASO : www.midave.com

Any Reviews On Vpsrush

Apr 19, 2009

any reviews on vpsrush?

I know they have started in just 2009, still there could be users who would like to share their review,

was lookin their plans for one of my friend, their plans look good

may be even impressive but after the mess around with the newly dooming/scam hosts such as hostchum, sarora, resellerways, it makes me think more than twice before selecting an host

See, I don't wish to raise up a discussion on the hosts again, its just my way of lookin at those recent dumb hosts which let lots of users in pain, including one of my dear friend.

I know its good to think twice, but it has made me lose faith really badly in the hosting industry thanks to the kiddies and scam hosts, to gain confidence back in the hosts might be a real tough buy

I know serving, wiredtree are still around but I am referring to the low-budget hosts..

Kerbosys Reviews

Aug 6, 2009

Since moved to Seattle area 2 years ago, I searched for a Supermicro-server-built vendor closed to Seattle. I found some, but their pricing seem expensive. Some others are very slow in response, even from other WHT users, they seem good. Recently, contacted Scott Lee at Kerbo System, and I believe I have found a good one.

As usual, I sent a lot of pre-sales questions. Scott is very nice, to answer all questions with details. He shows a good experience in server hardware building. Then, I decided to order a new dual Nehalem system with them. Transaction went smoothly, and I have server on time. He even took some photos of servers for me, before shipping out, so I can show to customers. He also noted down for me all series numbers of all parts in server, so I can keep track, in case something wrong.

At first, I am not very impressed with their home page, but please don't let you down. Drop Scott an email with your requirements, or what you are going to do with server, he will reply with his advice, what he's thinking the best in your case. A good service, especially for business likes ours, not in the US.

So, a short reviews about Scott Lee and Kerbo System. I would highly recommend them to anyone needs Supermicro servers in the West coast.

Scott, thanks for a good service. We are looking for a long term business relation.
