    h**p://www.santrex.net/

    3$ 20gig Space
    6$ 40gig Space
    11$ Unlimited Space

    They are a offshore based hosting, and they are exetremly stable hosts and have a nice uptime. I know alot of people who use them and they do say they are very good. I am planning on starting a AutoBlog on them soon so will tell you how it goes

    I got the same question as serra does. Its too good to be true especially the 11$ Unlimited Space. Is this your hosting?

    No, it is not. Many people use it, I can give out an email but Ill have to ask my friends permission before I do that.


    No, this is not my own hosting. And yes it is very cheap and good uptime.

    They probbly are BH Friendly as they are offshore so they don't really care what you do (They allow Adult Sites, Warez Linking, so they might accept BH Traffic etc.

    I am not sure how they treat spam complaints, ill ask about.

    Not sure of there outgoing email limit, send them a email they always answer


    Any more questions please post. I am not the owner but just know people who host on there

    I am warning all of you to avoid Santrex hosting like the plague! I made the mistake of signing up with them because their price was right. Out of one month of service my site was down about 2 weeks! I put in 9 support tickets and originally they tried to argue with me and say that it was ME who was doing something incorrectly and that's why my site was down all the time. Finally they acknowledged that it was something with their servers but it took them another week to get it straightened out. To add insult to injury I asked for a refund and they of course, cited their no refund policy. If they did give refunds they'd have to go out of business. If you give them any of your money or business YOU WILL BE SORRY!

    @ QTrex. QTrex and santrex are too close for coincidence. Please disclose your association with the hosting company.


    @ Vivica. thanks for the heads up. DO you know what country they are based out of?

    If they are located in London, they are definitely not as "offshore" as they would have or want you to believe.

    Code:
    https://www.santrex.net/about.php
    After conducting a TraceRoute on their Name Servers, it seems some of their UpStream/Network Backbone providers include (but are probably not limited to):

    Code:
    staminus.net
    above.net
    level3.net
    fibercloud.net
    pccwbtn.net
    gigeservers.com
    gtcomm.net
    sprintlink.net
    as6453.net (njiix.net)
    as19318.net (njiix.net)
    justedge.net
    ovh.net
    chtix.eu
    
    Some of these are not even backbones/upstreams, they are simply dedicated hosting companies, LOL! For instance...

    Code:
    http://www.gigeservers.com/
    Code:
    http://www.justedge.net/
    Others may be as well, but I do not feel like checking them out.

    My advice is to STAY AWAY from this hosting company and learn how to do your research before purchasing ANY type of hosting!

    I also believe "QTrex" is affiliated with this "hosting company" - if he doesn't actually own it. However, I have no evidence to support this claim, so take it for what it's worth.

    You should always research any possible future hosting company. I did some quite extensive research, but everyone should at least do SOME TYPE of research before buying any type of hosting.

    Also remember (as I stated in another thread), going with a hosting company that everyone else uses isn't always the best option, depending on what you're using the hosting company for. Use Google to find something unique and that best fits your needs.

    It is not always necessary to go with the most expensive, but it also always isn't such a good idea to go with the cheapest either.

    I was always consulted about webhosts and usually 20% of people I hooked up with a host would have made a horrible decision if they did not reconsider their original plans to get hosting from a particular company. The thing is that hosting is kind of like moving into a new neighborhood. If the neighborhood's houses are beautiful, that does not mean it is the neighborhood for you. Perhaps the neighborhood is full of dope dealers. Or the owner's association is crap. These are things you also have to consider when choosing a web host:

    1. Read reviews other people write about them on other websites (but even this can be a problem because some hosts get some of their own people to post reviews in order to boost popularity). Be negative and look at the bad reviews to see what people did not like about it. Don't just see what people say to glorify the web host (it is obvious a lot of people will say it is a good host without any knowledge of what a truly good host has to offer).

    2. Do a traceroute analysis of the backbone like Money Man did (whom I thanked for saving me the trouble).

    3. Verify more about the authenticity of the company. Never take a company's word for the quality of service it provides.

    4. If you can, talk to people who have used that kind of web hosting.


    These, among other things, are things you should really do before choosing a web host. Otherwise, you are gambling with your investment. Put your money into something worth it. I hate to see people get scammed. Money Man seems to know what he is doing, so if you need some assistance about a host, you can talk to him or me about it. I will help when I have the time.
