    About 4 months ago I decided to purchase 10 IP?s with these guys, everything was great, super fast speeds, my client was happy, I was happy.

    I am now upto 50 IP?s and trying to expand my business, but I can?t do it if they bring my site down every other day.

    I have 50 directories which each get an average of 1500 visits a day. Even though the traffic can be considered high I am still well within my allocated bandwidth, so why bring my sites down? I?m so frustrated and stressed out I swear i?m going to have a heart attack.

    I am spending every other day on hostgators live chat and after 2 hours of trying to talk to those clowns the end result is basically we don?t care.

    I have even told them that I am happy to buy a dedicated server from them which would resolve the problem, but noooo they can?t do that, look at the response:

    Me:
    On hostgator's website (http://www.hostgator.com/dedicated.shtml) you are advertising a dedicated server for $174 per month, can't I have this server with my currently allocated IP's? which would be $237 + $174 = $411 pm.

    Seohosting.com:
    Thank you for your response. Our dedicated server packages cannot be configured to use the IP pools allocated for our SEO hosting offerings. Given the network configuration of our datacenters, it would be impossible to route them to a server that is not one of our SEO hosting servers.

    Me:
    So you?re just going to leave me in the shit then? I joined you because you are supposed to be the best of the best.

    Seohosting.com:
    I apologize about the inconveniences but this is not due to something we are not willing to do but due to restrictions by the datacenter. The SEO servers need a special VLAN setup which the datacenter doesn't for individual customers. Due to the special setup these require there is very limited rackspace available and the datacenter will not provision a server for an individual customer behind this VLAN.
    Please keep in mind that SEO servers are still shared servers and the limits in place are there to ensure the stability and good performace of the sites hosted on the server. There might be some sites that due to the script/traffic of extra plugins they are using will need more resources than what an SEO plan is able to provlde
    If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact us We are more than happy to assist you.


    I will never reccomend seohosting.com to anyone again. All of these seohosting companies are the same.

    I have ordered a dedicated server from here>>> http://www.crystone.com/dedicated-seo-hosting-light.aspx and hopefully i have better luck with these guys.

    Rant over, i feel better now.

    Well... what to say. The bigger company you deal with the bigger restrictions they have... It's sad tho.

    You wont find any better host - I checked them all, like I mean - all.

    Seohosting is by far the best SEO hosting (not really for high traffic sites).
    If you need more - go for aseohosting or leapswitch dedicated servers.

    They are good too.

    If I have to take a wild guess, your sites are using too much of the host resources and pretty much every virtual host will either kick you out, restrict you in some way of ask you to upgrade (clearly not the cases here lol). A good virtual host can easily handle tens of tousands of daily hits to a static site, but sites that eat resrouces are another matter.

    A friend of mine got kicked out from his host after his databases grew to be super massive (he also runs similar sites to yours, classified sites) and pulling content from them was bogging down the host.

    exactly the problem, I'm not going to synopsis with them though, they should have a plan that can deal with my requirements. I am still within my allocated bandwidth.

    I have 7 sites down now. I'm so stressed. I need to relax in the sunshine, why does it always rain in England.
