About Site5.com (positive Or Negative)

Apr 22, 2008

I did a search on this site, and read a lot of negative things about site5.com

Is it still a 'bad'company or has their service changed?

Is it better to take a hosting with hostgator.com

Because aren't they overselling their packages: 1500 gb (storage) and 15.000 gb (bandwithe)

Another Negative Review Of Ipower

Jul 3, 2008

Yet another negative review of ipower.... I want to start by saying that this site has been indispensable in helping me come to a decision about changing hosts. The top ten lists I was finding seemed strange and fake, and I'm glad my suspicions about them were confirmed. I love the atmosphere here as well. Everyone is so helpful in their posts.

I've been hosting a personal site with ipower for about 6 years and most of the time it's been fine in terms of pricing and service for what I've needed. About a year ago I started a gaming guild site that is also hosted with them which experienced many unexplained outages. (All I can think is a bandwidth problem, even though it displayed garbled statistics that it was both exceeding and hardly using any.)

They migrated the gaming guild's site to the new platform they're making everyone go to (vDeck 3) with no problems, but it is horrendously slow and tedious to work with. How this could have been considered better is beyond me.

I found my personal site to be down a few days ago and emailed customer service about the problem when it did not clear up after a few hours. I was looking for information on whether it was a problem on my end or theirs and got back this gem - "you need to check the errors with your Web site by your own. If you do not wish to do so you can signup for a new account."

Frustrated with this response, I called up to see what the problem was. Apparently my site is on a server that has now been shut down. They could not migrate it because it is "too complex." The customer service guy could not give me further information beyond that. The only solution is to backup my site, open a new account with them and set the whole thing up again. (The CS guy sounded embarrassed about this.) Also, the data on my webspace will be deleted in seven days. Here's the kicker - I was notified about NONE OF THIS.

I was debating between staying with them and taking the "devil you know" approach (and having to deal with their terrible vdeck 3 platform with mysql/phpmyadmin speeds that make me want to pull my hair out) or switching and possibly running into worse problems down the road. Thanks to these forums, I don't think I'll have to make that kind of a decision now and I learned a lot about web hosting in the process!

After a few hours of research I think I've settled on Hawk Host. I'm really liking what I see when I read about them here, comparing them to other hosts and visiting their support forums. I hope to come back and add a positive review at some point in the future. A very aggravating experience has been completely turned around for me at this point.

NEGATIVE Review Of Hostchum

Feb 17, 2009

I was a customer of hostchum for about 3 or 4 days.

They ran a special for a really nice VPS and I decided to buy it.

1 gig ram

30 gig disk

400 gig bw


When I first logged in, well... I couldn't.

Submitted a support ticket and got that problem fixed within two hours. "Good support!"

I thought... Next day, I logged in again and installed my cPanel, and noticed that I had been given a TRIAL LICENSE! Submitted a support ticket and a day later that had been fixed. And I should also mention that I was PROMISED, that I would have NO DATA LOSS!

Guess what happened! DATA LOSS! I lost everything that I had set up! And I was promised NO DATA LOSS! I submitted a support ticket and the owner was apparently "stunned" that I lost everything. Well it wasn't THAT big of a loss... So I installed all my websites again and fixed all the features that where lost. Then I had an issue installing Fantastico... Well submit a support ticket (it was an average of 2 tickets a day now...) and I was starting to see slower and slower response times...

Instead of the 30 minute response times I was used to... it was now hours before anybody got back to me. OK, thats not the worst support I have seen. They get back to me and tell me that its fixed... it had been about half a day to fix fantastico... but... they didn't. I was able to install it on my vps whm... but it didn't show up on any cPanel account. Submit another support ticket that day, 12 hours later, fixed.

"Fantastic," I thought, "everything now works!"


The next day I get on one of my new websites internetincometeacher.com to mess around with the wordpress settings, getting ready to upload some of the content I had written... and I can't... the website is completely down!

It was JUST WORKING! I was FURIOUS! I submitted a support ticket over 36 hours ago and the problem has not been fixed... it hasn't even been identified! It took a day to get a response, and the response was:

"and what websites are not working?"

I said: "None of them"

Response: "what websites aren't working?"

I said: "None of them"

My response was 8 hours ago... Havn't received word yet.

I should also mention that I have requested a cancellation and a refund about 8 hours ago too and have not received word from them. Which is why I am writing this horrid review.

I suggest to everybody to not use them. And I would also be VERY suspicious of the positive reviews that I have read about them as well. They could just as easily be employees being told to create an account and write positive reviews.

CirtexHosting [negative Review]

Nov 21, 2008

Frustrastion w. CirtexHosting [negative review]

G'day everybody!

I actually stumbled onto this site in the search for a new hosting option...

My current site dare2go.com is hosted with cirtexhosting for nearly 3 years. During this time I had occasional problems with downtime and slow responses from support, but nothing like now. Since the hosting is cheap and my site a small (non-profit) travelogue I never really bothered too much...

Now I am battling for almost a week a problem with them which should actually be a simple one. I want to install a forum, and after some research decided on SMF from simplemachines. So on Monday I downloaded it, unpacked it and uploaded it via FTP. Upon first tests all actions (like admin changes, registration of new user, etc.) in the new program crashed - 403 error forbidden. For that day I gave up.

Next morning I went back, checking all permissions (Chmod, etc.) with no change of the problem; finally I posted a question about my problem on the simplemachines forum - nobody could help me...

The rest of this day I couldn't do much due to power outages.

Wednesday I went back to check everything but no changes - still every action resulted in a 403 error.

So I decided to try another forum software, MyBB, downloaded this, unpacked and installed it, and already upon log-in had exactly the same 403 error.

So I finally decided to contact the support explaining the problem and pointing to my suspicion that it was some kind of php permission error. Even the header of my support request read "permission problems at 'dare2go.com'" (Years ago I used to earn some money from websites, had my own dedicated server with better access to php features. Back then I had to install other scripts - so I know a little - not much - GRIN. But I don't like to bother support for issues which turn out to be my own stupidity, hence my late cry for help...)

A reply to this enquiry arrived after nearly 90 minutes and didn't reach me until the next morning. Support had decided to alter my .htaccess file resulting in my entire website being down (only a directory listing being displayed) - great
So this day I tried first to look into this problem, and then decided to poke a little more through CPanel (where I had looked several times before in an effort to solve my problem - never really used it before) - in Fantastico I discovered an auto-install of exactly the same version of SMF which I had installed on Monday - I decided to run this (into a third directory for a forum), and upon starting this install I soon received exactly the same 403 error.

In the meantime more emails went back and forth between support and me - the time span between them getting longer and longer.

Finally today I received this answer:


Sorry for the inconvenience, mod_security found some session attack from your script. Please upgrade your script with latest and then check it, otherwise upgrade your cirtex plan to VPS or Dedicated server. For more information hostv.com

This is not a solution!

Virtual or dedicated hosting are way beyond my means and my needs! After all: the last install from Fantastico is exactly the version they are offering as a free option for my account, and cirtexhosting's front page states in bright orange "We Host Forums".

My last email from around 5 hours ago (cc to sales-at-cirtex.com) remains unanswered. 24/7 support doesn't mean I should have to wait a day for a reply...
An ANGRY Juergen

I am traveling and have only limited internet access - hence this issue is even more pressing. Next week I have to move on because my visa in Paraguay is expiring soon - and all time seems to be wasted...

MySQL Query Doing Odd Things - Removing Negative Sign For No Apparant Reason

Jan 10, 2007

I've got a problem with an SQL query that is behaving badly. Its probably really obvious, but I can't see the problem!

I have a table with 3 fields:


money bigint(20)
income int(12)
userID mediumint(7)

I have a row that has a negative money and a value of 0 for income. When I update the money value to add "0" to it, nothing happens (as expected). When I update the money field to add the income field (which is equal to 0) to it, MySQL flips the sign to make the money field positive.

The following queries show the problem:


mysql> SELECT money, income from users where userID=327961;
| money | income |
| -9223372036854775807 | 0 |
1 row in set (0.00 sec)

mysql> UPDATE `users` SET money = money + 0 WHERE userID =327961;
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)
Rows matched: 1 Changed: 0 Warnings: 0

mysql> SELECT money, income from users where userID=327961;
| money | income |
| -9223372036854775807 | 0 |
1 row in set (0.00 sec)

mysql> UPDATE `users` SET money = money + income WHERE userID =327961;
Query OK, 1 row affected, 1 warning (0.00 sec)
Rows matched: 1 Changed: 1 Warnings: 1

mysql> SELECT money, income from users where userID=327961;
| money | income |
| 9223372036854775807 | 0 |
1 row in set (0.00 sec)

Notice that there is no negative sign after the third select!!

So, we are saying that executing an update where 0 is specified in the query results in the correct action but if you take the 0 from another field it takes the negative sign away...

This for various reasons is a rather urgent problem. This problem has only appeared after upgrading from MySQL 4.0 to MySQl 5.1. This problem does not occur in MySQL 4.1.

XenVZ Positive Review

It's been almost 3 weeks, more or less, since I signed up with XenVZ (xenvz.co.uk). Sean does a good job on support whenever I put in a ticket - fast responses, always.

As for network stability, it hasn't disconnected from Quakenet (IRC network) since I've gotten it - signon 17d 20h 40m 25s ago.

As for speed, 19:36:39 (10.80 MB/s) - `100mb.test' saved [104857600/104857600] (from cachefly).

Sologigabit.com Positive Review

May 11, 2009

Now I'm about two month with sologigabit.com and want to share some impressions with you.

Sologigabit was extremely helpful to me. I needed server with custom config and they ordered some hardware for me. They take only two month upfront.

While they didn't have hardware required, they set up server for me and made it available, so I could familiarize myself with a system. That helped me a lot when I started to install system later.

They didn't offered FreeBSD as available OS to install but downloaded image for me and put installation media into dvd drive, so I could install it myself. They also were helpful providing information about system while I was installing system, as I encountered some problem with FreeBSD default kernel.

I have dedicated remote APC and KVM, so I could resolve almost all my issues myself.
Running for two month with them I didn't encountered any problems, so I probably stay with them for a long time.

Burst Positive Review

Sep 7, 2009

I am a current customer of Burst for more than 6 months already and so far I am loving their service. There are very, very minor issues but it gets resolved in a timely manner. I have 7 servers with them and looking forward to expanding more. Their sales support Shawn and Benj are very considerate and their technical support Brian is very helpful, knowledgeable, polite and treats customers the right way.

Burst live chat support (AIM) is also the best I have seen with a host.

I recommend them to everybody who's looking for a reliable network and good support!

VERY Positive Review- VertexHost

May 30, 2008

Thought I would share my recent experience with VertexHost.

I run a vBulletin forum and I had a VPS for over 2 years through PowerVPS. However, due to irreconcilable differences with them offering my current package at a lower price than what I was paying, then refusing to give it to me at "todays price" unless I canceled my service and transfer my data, I parted with them.

I had a "contacting spree" weekend where I contacted 23 different hosts and talked about what I was looking for (I wanted to move to a dedicated server since I figured with my community growing I might as well select a place that I could grow into)

I needed a managed server with decent specs since VB is a server intense application.

Some of the managed server "top players" I talked to were LiquidWeb, AxisHost, and RackSpace. Others were smaller companies that I had saw posted on the dedicated forum offers section.

AH took far too long to get back to me, quite a few days actually. LW would meet at a price for me (my budget was $150- about $170) at $150; however, gave me a very 'downgraded server' compared to what was being offered other places. Finally RS was just way overprices and couldn't come down to my range. Most companies gave me a round-about answer, seemed flaky, or just weren't interested in really helping me.

I had known about VertexHost because I used to host/use Infopop's Eve forum software and they were also on the forums there because they had used UBBThreads before developing their own forum software. Anyway, long story short, I decided to see what they were up to.

Billy from VH was very quick to answer all of my questions and made my sales ticket critical and a top priority. He not only told me what would need to be done in terms of transferring my forum and files (I was coming from Plesk to CPanel) but offered to do it for me.

I agreed that it would be best to have him do it, and he happily did it, free of charge I might add.

Along with transferring my forums over, he also made it so I lost no time while waiting for my domain to propagate. He set it up so the old IP from PowerVPS would send people to the database on my new server with VH.

It was such a seamless transition... my forums were down for only about 2 hours total. I might also mention those 2 hours were from a little before midnight until about 2 AM; a time when the forums are slow any way.

I don't want to get any more long winded than I already have, so in a nutshell VH not only met me on price, but they also transferred everything for me, made sure I had little down time, and were very knowledgeable about any question I had.

I cannot stress enough how highly I recommend them. I'm a loyal customer who likes to stick with what works and who appreciates my business. I do not foresee my leaving VH any time in the future. I can now sleep peacefully knowing my site is in good hands!

Spam...false Positive

May 21, 2008

After few days of not getting even "one" spam out of average 70 messages a day...the company manager got angry! He thought the mail system is down.

Our provider - a VDS subscriber who rent us shared plan for a website - said: we changed nothing. I confirmed: did you install any new anti-spam software on the site...they said: NO.

In a next conversation with the company manager, they told him they installed a new anti-spam software on the whole server and cannot make it off for our site specifically.

The problem is, they already had a kind of anti-spam software which only "marks" spam-like messages with "**SPAM**" in the subject line, and doesn't mark others. I am afraid some customers' emails get marked and deleted with this new software they claim implemented, based on false positives.

Many times I get my emails in Yahoo and Hotmail go to Spam/Junk folder for some not-widely known reasons, like sending to myself, while putting recipients in CC, and other strange reasons like just using CC in an auto-reply!

something any non-tech person might do.

I am thinking in switching to a new host where we only host mails (mx record), so we don't have "any" email deleted without our check.

Very Positive Review For: Dingloo At Auroinfotech.com

Jul 17, 2008

I desperately need someone to trouble shoot and eventually fix a mySQL/PHP program we had a month ago. The problem was costing the company I do work for nearly $1,000 per day in lost money. I received 15 people contacting me off a post I made on WHT, and elected to work with Dingloo from auroinfotech.com. And what a great decision that was!

Dingloo and his associate from the get go showed great communication skills, professionalism, and most importantly... fixed the problem very fast!

I truly appreciated the work he and his associate did, and the speed in which they completed it. Our PHP script is 100% fixed (and its a very complicated PHP script) and is working great.

I love to give positive reviews, as I feel people who do an excellent job need to received praise. Thanks again Dingloo for your hard work, I truly appreciate it! You've made work around here a lot better, and we all thank you in the office!

We will continue to use your PHP/mySQL/Admin services in the very near future. I put this in the Ded. Server Forum as this included Admin work on 5 of my servers, and other Admin Duties beside programming.

My Positive Experience With Hawk Host

Jul 27, 2008

I used Web Hosting Talk to help me choose a shared web server and the choice I made was Hawk Host.

I just want to say I have had nothing but positive experiences with Hawk Host in the two months I have had it. No down times, no slow downs. Nothing.

Today (a Sunday afternoon) I had a problem with a Moodle course I am running on Hawk Host. This turns out to be a problem not with anything at Hawk Host, but with Moodle itself. I didn't know that at the time, though, so I turned in a trouble ticket at Hawk Host.

Within an hour -- remember, it's a *Sunday afternoon*, Tony had not only gotten back to me via e-mail, he had implemented a solution that is going to solve the biggest aspects of the problem until I can get things resolved with Moodle itself.

I had to come back here to share my experience. I don't post a lot of forum messages at any of the forums I visit, but I read a lot. This time, however, I simply had to write about this. I do not think it is possible to provide better customer service than I have received at Hawk Host.

60 Day Review - 3DGWEBHOSTING - Extremely Positive

Apr 10, 2008

--An extremely positive review of 3DGWebHosting

We now have passed 60 days with 3dgwebhosting (3dgwebhosting.com) and what had started as a VPS only endeavor continues to expand based upon the incredible level of support and technical performance we are receiving.

If you would have asked me three months ago about 3dgwebhosting I would have been unable to respond...I did quite a bit of research when we decided to switch from a shared hosting offering with some large shared hosting providers to a VPS. I contacted close to a dozen providers and inquired regarding performance, packages, support, etc. and at the end of the day there was a level of comfort with 3DG that I did not have with the majority of other VPS Providers. Don't get me wrong...there were some shining stars in the bunch but something about 3dg (beyond the great pricing and flexibility) sold me on giving them a try.

Being a serial entrepreneur I have always been partial to working with smaller (at least those that felt smaller!) customer-centric firms for all of my support services from back office to technical. This was no exception. Performance is obviously critical in the technical space but I also view customer service and attentive vendors as critical factors in vendor selection.

Well the short of it is we have been on board with 3DG for over 60 days. Performance has been top notch and the level of customer support has been unmatched by any technical services provider I have used in the past. In addition, 3DG has become a strategic partner and has provided some great insight into how to globalize our technology and incorporate our clients’ needs into our technology platform (i.e. SharePoint). I truly did not expect to see this level of involvement on a consulting front and level of customization on a technology front from a hosting provider – a pleasant surprise! Kudos to David and the 3dg team. We have many sites on the VPS but our primary is glotegy.com.

If my business provides a level of service that is worthy of praise I always hope that my clients will speak their mind and help me spread the word about what I am trying to do. With that said I cannot recommend 3DG highly enough!

Since the inception of the VPS we have also put in place a dedicated server at 3DG that is running Office SharePoint Server and will be live with a hosted solution of Microsoft Dynamics 4.0 CRM with 3DG sometime next week.

Sorry for the long post but as you can probably tell I get pretty passionate about my business and those firms who help me with my global endeavors! To sum it up...finally...3DG is attentive, customer-centric, and a valued business partner.

Bird Hosting Windows VPS Positive, Thumbs Up Review

Dec 23, 2008


We've been having trouble with uptime and a SQL box through Lunar Pages in the past couple months and we couldn't take anymore trouble. As such, we went looking for a new Windows VPS provider. Given I'm not a Windows person by default, my daily computer is a
Mac, I needed some hand-holding for the transition.

Through the research for a Windows VPS supplier here at WHT, I selected several firms to investigate and communicate with. Principally Host My Site, Liquid Web, and Bird Hosting. After conversations with each via email and phone calls, Michael of Bird Hosting [url] quickly rose to the top.

Michael, once we informed him of our intention to move to him, had our single-domain Windows VPS migrated from LunarPages to Bird Hosting overnight. Even when a SQL access issue rose up, Michael has been quick to respond and get our support system up and running again.

Spam Test For Outbound False Positive Mail

Jul 9, 2007

I tried a little searching both in Google and on here but this is probably going to be a private or member-based thing anyway.

I've gotten a couple comments that some of my outbound personal mail is ending up in spam folders. I think it's almost completely limited to having Outlook (or Express?) as a client... which I assume doesn't even do network-based lookups. Nonetheless I don't seem to be on any blacklists, and running it through my own spamassassin filter comes up basically zero score. But the fact that more than one person has had the problem concerns me greatly. Also, I haven't seen any significant reason why the content itself would trigger anything.

I realize a public spam test service would basically be a "testing ground" for spammers to evade detection, but there's obviously legitimate uses as well... is there such a tool somewhere? Thanks for any advice. Public information sharing is key to a forum, but PMs are welcome in this case.
