    update.
    DO NOT USE SITEGROUND.
    I TAKE BACK EVERYTHING GOOD I SAID ABOUT SITEGROUND . EVER SINCE I GOT MY DEDICATED SERVER THEY ARE SLOWLY SUSPENDING ALL MY SHARD HOSTINGS ACCOUNTS SAYING THEY ARE USING TOO MUCH PROCESSES. BS!! MOST OF THE SITES ARE DEAD JUST SITTING THERE WITH NOTHING RUNNING. I'VE LARGELY IGNORED IT SINCE THE SITES ARE DEAD. ALSO THE SYSTEM AND PROCESS TO DISABLE AUTO RENEW SEEMS TO ALWAYS "TIME-OUT" AT THE LAST FEW STEPS OF THE PROCESS. scam.
    SO I CHANGED MY CARD ON FILE TO A PREPAID CARD SO THEY WOULDNT AUTO CHARGE ME. SINCE IT DIDNT GO THROUGH THEY AUTOMATICALLY REVERTED BACK TO THE LAST CARD I USED, WITHOUT MY PERMISSION!!!:eek: MAKING ME NEGATIVE AND BROKE FOR THE NEXT 3 DAYS!!!!! I HAD TO ASK MY NEIGHBORS FOR THEIR CAR CAUSE I DIDNT HAVE ENOUGH GAS TO DRIVE MY AUTISTIC CHILDREN TO SCHOOL. (I only mention my childrens autism because its a bitch to get them ready in the morning, then to find out all the wonderful problems Siteground created was unwanted and unneeded.)

    ITS LIKE WHEN I WAS IN CONSTRUCTION. ALWAYS HAVING TO CHASE CHECKS. BUT ITS WORSE, ASSHOLES LIKE SITEGROUND JUST CHARGE YOU SETTING UP AUTO REBILLS, THEY SENT ME LIKE 30 EMAILS FOR THE RENEWAL. MAYBE THE REASON I DIDNT CLICK THE LINKS IN THE EMAIL IS BECAUSE I DIDNT WANT TO RENEW!!!!! BESIDEDS I HAVE A DEDICATED SERVER WHY WOULD I PAY $100 FOR THE YEAR OF HOSTING WHEN I CAN JUST INCLUDE IN MY SERVER!!!!!

    ITS FUCKING HARD ENOUGH TO BUILD WHITE HAT SITES AND CONTENT AND PLAY GOOGLES STUPID DANCE BUT THEN YOU HAVE TO BEWARE OF COMPANIES LIKE SITEGROUND STEALING MONEY WHEN THEY PLEASE. WTF- DO THEY THINK IM STUPID???? I'VE BEEN A CUSTOMER FOR 3 YEARS AND THEY SHIT ON IT FOR $107. ARRRGGHHH IM SO FUCKING MAD.

    TO TOP IT ALL OFF, MORE THAN HALF THE REDIRECTS DONT WORK IN THE CPANEL---> ON THE DEDICATED SERVER!!! WHAT IS UP WITH THAT? WHY AM I PAYING $179 FOR A PIECE OF SHIT ASS FUCKING SERVER FROM THEM. THEN WHEN I ASK HIM TO CHECK ON REDIRECTS THE DOUCHE TELLS ME THAT ONE OF THEM IS WORKING. WHAT ABOUT THE REST? THESE ARE PAGES I SPENT COUNTLESS HOURS BUILDING LINKS TO AND NOW POINT TO MY MONEY PAGE AND THEY DONT WORK. THEY LITERALLY GET OVER 1000 CLICKS A DAY. WOW GREAT SERVICE. I WOULD RATHER HAVE SOMEONE STOMP ON MY BALLS FOR 6 HOURS THAN DEAL WITH SITEGROUND.

    NOW READING THIS THREAD I KNOW FOR A FACT THEY ARE SCAMMERS-

    BTW- I AM USING ALL CAPS TO SHOW HOW FRUSTRATED AND PISS OFF I AM.

    BOTTOM LINE THEY SUCK.

    DOES ANY ONE KNOW OF ANY OTHER DEIDICATD SERIVE THAT WILL HELP ME WITH SMALL TASKS LIKE UPLOADING AN SQL FILE. I ALWAYS HAVE TO ASK SITEGROUND FOR THIS, THERE PHPMYADMIN SEEMS TO NEVER WANT TO UPLOAD MY SQL FILES.

    I just wanted to say that I read the first two paragraphs, so cap lock did not bother me, it usually does, but I could tell you were pissed. I figured after the first two paragraphs, I got the point.

    Good luck.

    Siteground definitely sucks. Their auto rebills are dumb. Even if you turn off auto bill they will keep trying to charge your card no matter what until the card expires. The last I checked you couldn't even remove your card from your account. I was lucky my credit card expires so they could no longer rebill me. Their service is so bad and they are crooks. I suggest that no one ever use them.

    Re-formatted OP's post to make it more readable.

    Do not use siteground.

    I take back everything good i said about siteground . Ever since i got my dedicated server they are slowly suspending all my shard hostings accounts saying they are using too much processes. Bs!! Most of the sites are dead just sitting there with nothing running. I've largely ignored it since the sites are dead. Also the system and process to disable auto renew seems to always "time-out" at the last few steps of the process. Scam.
    So i changed my card on file to a prepaid card so they wouldnt auto charge me. Since it didnt go through they automatically reverted back to the last card i used, without my permission!!! making me negative and broke for the next 3 days!!!!! I had to ask my neighbors for their car cause i didnt have enough gas to drive my autistic children to school. (i only mention my childrens autism because its a bitch to get them ready in the morning, then to find out all the wonderful problems siteground created was unwanted and unneeded.)

    Its like when i was in construction. Always having to chase checks. But its worse, assholes like siteground just charge you setting up auto rebills, they sent me like 30 emails for the renewal. Maybe the reason i didnt click the links in the email is because i didnt want to renew!!!!! Besideds i have a dedicated server why would i pay $100 for the year of hosting when i can just include in my server!!!!!

    Its fucking hard enough to build white hat sites and content and play googles stupid dance but then you have to beware of companies like siteground stealing money when they please. Wtf- do they think im stupid???? I've been a customer for 3 years and they shit on it for $107. Arrrgghhh im so fucking mad.

    To top it all off, more than half the redirects dont work in the cpanel---> on the dedicated server!!! What is up with that? Why am i paying $179 for a piece of shit ass fucking server from them. Then when i ask him to check on redirects the douche tells me that one of them is working. What about the rest? These are pages i spent countless hours building links to and now point to my money page and they dont work. They literally get over 1000 clicks a day. Wow great service. I would rather have someone stomp on my balls for 6 hours than deal with siteground.

    Now reading this thread i know for a fact they are scammers-

    btw- i am using all caps to show how frustrated and piss off i am.

    Bottom line they suck.

    Does any one know of any other deidicatd serive that will help me with small tasks like uploading an sql file. I always have to ask siteground for this, there phpmyadmin seems to never want to upload my sql files.

    Hi to all, my first post.

    Thanks for the warning. I'm just curious to find out if anybody knows why they use CC instead of paypal. I'm new to all this stuff.

    You can upload sql files also as text, through just cpying it from an editor like notepad and pasting into the sql statement.
    If you are talking about importing bigger mysql db's now.
