    anyone that can recommend them? this is from their homepage

    a risk-free trial of a one-year hosting plan using the promotional code "777tax11" and you'll get an entire year of web hosting (including a domain registration) for just $9.24! That's 92% off our normal pricing!

    Depends how much you value your business for if you are using this hosting for your business.

    Six words you should remember: you. get. what. you. pay. for

    Not saying if they are good or not now. I used them a few years back on the same kind of deal and it was slow hosting. Perhaps it was down to me being in the UK and their servers in the US.

    I have also read / heard / spoken to people who get hit by their resource limits. They are no different to every other undercutting budget host out there. As soon as you hit their limits they will possibly try to upsell you to the next big shared plan, a VPS or even a dedicated box.

    Think of it another way - $9.98 is the price of a domain per year (going on what my domain reg charges), so how can they make money selling you a domain AND hosting AND support for a year?

    Yes, we all know about loss leaders but thats got to be a killer.

    You have the final say on where you host, but I (and this is a purely personal view) prefer to pay a few extra quid a month to know that my site will be up day in day out - and its not a huge money maker site like a lot of you guys run!

    Not trying to piss on your bonfire but if something is too good to be true, perhaps its because it is!

    Cannot recommend as just got account banned so fuck them, what's not to like about auto creating shedloads of sub domains and installing autoblogs on all of them :D

    ohwell, onwards and upwards, tells self to limit subdomains on the next host

    they are good till you are a simple website..even if u have 20 low traffic websites hosted with them then also no issues...but their might be issues when you start getting traffic...i have had websites that crossed traffic of 5k a day and they never got cloackd but there have been websites that would go down for 30 minutes a day jus coz their traffic was touching 3k a day...

    still i stick to them...for over 4 years...y...coz they are good..

    you get what you pay for
