I constantly hear about all these bad experiences with web hosting companies on Black hat world and other forums and I am just curious as to why some of these users would even try out a potential bad web host? Just a few examples of names that come up on these forums with rants, complaints of down time and horror stories are Godaddy, Hostwinds, berman hosting, arvix etc. those are just a few a remember reading. Now if any of you had poor experiences with your web host may I ask what lead you to pick them in the first place? I know that price is a big factor but looking at Godaddys pricing or even hostwinds pricing, they are definitely not the cheapest in their respective categories. I have a few accounts with a few different hosting companies and like a lot of people I like to spread out my content across multiple providers but I am just curious as to why someone would order from any of those hosts with so many negative reviews? I would love to hear your stories.
