VPS Providers That Provide Free OS Reloads

Nov 12, 2008

As the subject implies, does anyone know of any VPS providers that provide free OS reloads, if at all possible? The reason I'm asking is because I am planning on building my Linux system administration skills, allowing me to eventually manage my own server. I am real competent when it comes to Windows, however, I really don't want to use it as much as possible.

So if you know of a VPS provider that provides free OS reloads, I would be real grateful if you could share them to me.

Free Hosting And Free Domain

Sep 17, 2009

Do you think if a company offered free web hosting and free domains people would snap them up like there is no tommorow?

Also does anyone one how much ICANN acredited registrars pay ICANN when they register a new domain?

any feedback would be great!

Shared Hosting Providers

Jul 8, 2009

I am writing a low memory/cpu/bandwidth CMS php/mysql program to be open source.

In the process I want to make it as safe as possible but I realize that shared hosting and some vps systems can make intial security ideas not viable. So I would like to ask you about your usual system setups and how hard it is for the users to do certain things.

I assume you do not allow shell for shared, but maybe vps. Do you allow a customer to easily password protect a directory? What about mod_rewrite as a option for them?

As far as httpd.conf changes such as wildcard characters before domain names, is that something that would not be an issue for you in 'normal' environments? And of course alias folders too.

What about the ability for the client to add a non-html folder to use? In other words client's html folder is
/var/www/client1/htdocs and ability to add

Most of this is basic stuff, but I remember in the old days that shared hosts seldom allowed things like this.

It is not so much the program will need it, but there are some extras I can program in for them if these is a normal access or requestable items. And as far as securing the program I would instruct them where to put many things that protect configs and uploaded images and such.

European Hosting Providers

Mar 28, 2009

This post is the result of a frustrating 2 week search for a decent dedicated server provider in Europe.

My conclusion is: there isn't one. At least not without paying a heavy price, often double or triple of what you'd pay with a US provider. And even at that price, you often get a service that is far far bellow the quality of service you receive with many US providers.

I simply can't believe that things that are considered rather normal and expected in the US require you to pay a premium price with many EU hosting providers. I'll list just a few:

99% Network SLA
Seriously? 99%? Most providers I see in the US have at least 99.9% if not 100%. Running a good network is essential for every hosting provider. Do they distrust their networks or are they simply incapable of managing a stable reliable network for their clients?

Hardware Replacement SLA
This is a good one. Many hosts I found either have none, or they have insanely horribly... horrible ones! One example: 8 hours within office time. So what if your server goes down on Friday night? You'll be doomed until Monday, and even then it can take them all day to fix it as far as their SLA is concerned.

Others require you to pay a premium price to get a better SLA. I saw one host that wants something in the area of 150 euros for a 2 hour hardware replacement SLA. I could get another server for that.

This is really a gem. Trying to find any sort of fully managed provider is nothing short of impossible. Many advertise it, but if you contact them and ask specific questions the answer is mostly "Huh? You want what installed / configured?". I did manage to find some German ones that provided decent answers, but they were German only.

Last but not least, I simply cannot believe the price difference I see when comparing US to EU providers. I usually find the following combinations:

- Cheap server, expensive addons, expensive SLA options
- Expensive server, cheap addons, expensive SLA options
- Cheap server, expensive addons, horrible SLA with insane price to upgrade to a better SLA

I don't understand how the EU providers expect to receive double or triple of what you pay in the US for perhaps half or one third of service.

Reading LeaseWeb support horror stories and lately a lot of Ecatel ones too I really do wonder how those companies plan to operate in several years. I'm pretty sure that if it weren't for their larger clients they would seriously reconsider the way they operate.

I have been in the hosting market for roughly 6 years now. Started from shared to VPS to dedicated. All those 6 years, the service has improved with most companies I've had business with and service expectations have also risen quite high.

However, here in Euroland it seems providers live in some sort of relaxed state where after work hours, things are not really their problem anymore until next day.

So tell me, what am I missing here? Am I nuts, or is it really such a big difference? Why is there such a big difference and what do you think will happen in the future with many big European hosting providers?

And please don't take this personal if you live in Europe. I live in Europe myself and I really tried to find a service acceptable both in price and features, but so far this didn't work out at all.

Email Hosting Providers ..

Jun 9, 2008

I represent a small company ~10 users, that has a domain name registered with a company like godaddy. The domain is not hosted as yet.

I would like to find a good service provider that can provide us with email hosting, i.e. we would like to get 5 email accounts with 5GB or more, larger the better.

The users will be accessing the email through Outlook and if possible through webmail.

Over time, we would like to host the website and build a site as well but that is not an immediate need

Finally, the hosting company should have good customer service.

Shared Hosting Providers ...

Sep 11, 2008

After my days and days of research, even here on WHT, I'm still not sure which is my best choice for a shared hosting provider for my needs. I am NOT looking for the cheapest. I want the best and will pay for it. I'm a tech consultant (obviously not in the website arena) and will be hosting at least 3 sites (personal and business). Here is what I am looking for:

(I registered my domain names with Dotster and in 3 days I still can't get anyone to answer the phone and the live chat has been a 15-20 minute wait just for an answer on their hosting plans, so round the clock support is important!)

24/7 support that is quick to respond
Reliability and high % of uptime
Great sitebuilder tools
A company that doesn't oversell with UNLIMITED and cheap plans
A company that has high ratings in customer satisfaction
Ability to purchase my hosting plan online using Paypal is a plus

I've read about lots of nightmares here and I'd really like to avoid them. Until I started doing my research, I had NO IDEA how many hosting providers there are! I expected to make some comparisons and be able to make an informed decision,

Looking For A Free Hosting

I've made my first website and I'm trying to find web hosting that is free and that it will also allows me to transfer my files through ftp directly through an ftp server. (

I've tried using the one for but it doesn't work.. I tried it using port 21, 22, and 80 in both frontpage and filezilla and they didn't work.. I guess it's the ftp server that isn't really working, or the information they provide is inaccurate.

Here's a new free web host to check out:


5GB disk space

Perfect for sites that aren't bandwidth intensive. Anyway, you can't beat the price, particularly if you need to host lots of small sites. I'm currently using the service to host articles and link pages, and it's working out nicely.

Free Web Hosting

Jul 29, 2007

Me and a few friends decided to start a web site but we don't have a very large member base at the moment so we are on free forum hosting. I thought the next logical step would be to get some free or very inexpensive website hosting that offered a domain name. So I got from and tried out their free hosting.

What is really bothering me is that their ad that they put on the top of every page apparently "interferes" with the registration images on PHPBB and SMF forums. I really don't know a lot about web hosts but this just sounds fishy to me. Should I switch web hosts?

ThePlanet / Other Hosting Providers - Unethical Practices

Nov 11, 2008

I am posting here my experience with Theplanet and also looking to gain insights into unethical practices by hosting providers who are turning into practices of utility and credicard companies. I have been a loyal customer of Serverbeach for 4 years, I have been a loyal customer of Theplanet for more than a year .. I outsource my server administration to admins who setup , configure and manage my servers. Recently Theplanet disconnected our server as our credit card on file expired which I beleive is the right thing to do .. What ticks me off is the fact that they are charging a reconnect fee - FOR WHAT - to click a button? Just Ridiculous. THese dedicated companies are following the path of utility companies and credit card companies which slap various fees on their customers and milking customers .. sure a reconnect fee is understood if the account is not in good standing and such incidents are common on the account . What surprises me is this is the first time in 1+ year and they refuse to waive the fee , it is not the question of fee but the ethics and practices is what I am concerned about. NOw a reconnect fee , what next ? a server restart fee ? which direction are these hosting companies moving towards?

Well I explained the situation and that email is not always the best communication a phone call could have helped. Who would not agree that that single email might have stuck in a junk folder? THey had my full contact information if only they are genuine , they would call and understand what is the issue , have at risk management practices in place so their sales rep could contact me right after 3 days of non payment. But NO they rather wanted me to contact them as they take it for granted that I have been their customer for more than a year and It is not easy for me to move out to a different provider I would not have any option but to pay considering the time and effort involved in migrating to other hosting provider.

ThePlanet - Sorry but on the ethics issue I would not mind spending 100 x the reconnect fee to move to other provider who understands customers.

I am reaching out to all the individuals who sign up with these companies and respond to this post any such experiences.. HIdden fees charged by these companies ? Have you noticed how credit card companies change their billing cycles and you received the bill only to know you missed the payment due date .. ..

That said please let me know which is the best dedicated server company which I can sign up with which does not enforce hidden fees such as these and is ethical and understands and listens to customers.
