    I bought hostable hosting plan few moth ago when on promo $0.99 for 3 years. When my site cause them high cpu usage because my site is getting bigger an got a lot of traffic, they suddenly suspend me without notification, and I got no chance to fix it and no chance to backup my data. I bought 2 hosting plan, and now the 2nd hosting plan is suspended too, and again, no chance to fix it or back up at all.

    Well, I can't do anything. They really irresponsible. They say they give me multiple chance, but actually it was not.

    This is the conversation between me and their customer service.
    So I close the conversation. Well, it really sucks.

    1. Tell them to give access only to your IP to make a backup.
    2. Go to webhostingtalk.com and write a review so people can find out, they have an account there

    I just gave up another shity company, that oversold their servers

    You are trying to rip them just for your shady $0.99 from Virtual Credit Card.

    Get some dedicated hosting Lame!

    Hostable is better than few other good ones.

    Thanks for sharing. I also have some sites in there. How much resources did you use? Shared hosting in only good for low traffic sites. If you got some high traffic sites maybe you should transfer to vps.

    I really doubt that they are better I saw some reviews and their server load is at 90, they don't make backups. They are scammers

    Always havе your оwn backups, nevеr depend оn yоur provider (no matter which оne уou choose) tо backup your files for you.

Being ablе to start оver еlsewhere with а complete set оf recent backups makes all the difference іn case it hаppenѕ tо your host.

    Actually I don't really need the backup files, I just want to know what happen if someone else experience this problem too with hostable. Maybe I will write a review on webhostingtalk forum.

    So polite!
    I just want to share my experience, I don't even care about my backup data on hostable. I ask them about this just to make sure about their solution. I have several webhosting plan on another company too, they always give a chance to make a backup. I already ask them is it because I'm using promo plan but they answer is "no".
    I don't need dedicated, vps is already enough. I bought dedicated server few months ago when I still using wordpress for my autoblog, but now I make my own script so it take less cpu usage, but need a lot of file cache.

    I'm not sure how much, but after I move my sites to my vps, it take about 5GB disk space and about 1.5GB daily bandwith. My sites are content scraper that I make it myself.

    Well, they are still good for some aspects, but I hate when they don't give a chance for tweaking my sites or back up. My experience with another hosting company they always give a chance to edit my site to make it lower cpu usage.

    Yes, that's so true, that's why I make my custom script so I don't really need a backup, but I'm thingking about what will happen if this happen to someone else.

    Using Hostable for a while now. no problems except when i add domains

    the domains points to a default page first. But the support is quick.

    Did you get your $.99 worth? I think so. Just because you didn't make backups isn't anyone's fault but yours.

    Stop Bitching Hostable, 1.5gb bandwith per day is too much for a $.99 per yr shared hosting. Tell me other shared hosting that accept 1.5gb per day bandwith usage that wont banned you.

    I been using hostable many months now so far no problem with them.

    So true, I just spent 1 week setting up emails again & restoring over 200 sites. By far the worst thing that's ever happened to me since I started this business.

    Ask them for a backup. Then find a reasonably priced host or VPS/Dedi that can handle the load.. They aren't going to have 300+ customers sites go down on a box, because you are overusing resources!

    cmon' now.

    Yes, their support is good enough, but can't be compared to hostgator. HG is still the best customer support.

    Yes, it's worth.

    My sites's traffic is growing, when hostable suspend me it mean when reach about 1.5GB bandwith. The problem is they don'y give a chance to make me fix the problem or back up the data, eventhough it's not necessary for me, but what if this happen to another people?

    common problem when peeps using A** plugins and lot traffic will coming... affected of this, you will suspended...

    if your site has a lot traffic a day, you should use VPS or dedicated, not shared.... is your risky if your site hammer hosted with disturbing other user reason...

    The same problem here! Yesterday I see it in my email account an email from hostable with this subject "Hosting Account Terminated"! Without any warnings, whitout nothing! The reason for what my account was terminated? The boys from live chat was tell me that is "confidential"! What is that? They are deleted all the files of my websites without any warning and is "confidential" the reason for what they are deleted my 40+ websites? I was asked for a backup, but I have any chance! They really sucks! I think it's normal the make that!

    I don't use any plugin, I don't even use wordpress, I made my own script. With my script I don't even care with the data left on suspended hosting, I just move my script on another hosting company. I already have some vps, some shared hosting, and I was using dedi before. I just to share my experience with hostable.

    I'm sad to hear that. My experience with another hosting company, they always give a chance to make a backup, but hostable won't give you a chance.

    You can read my chat log with them, he said that they do the same to another user, not because I'm using promo plan.

    Yes, and I often found my sites are error because of their server. Actually they server is good enough, but I think it just oversold.
