    2 days ago, IMH 183 server have a power outage ( per their support )

    1st-ly, theres no email notification until i checked my website myself.

    then, i called their support via long distance, 25+ mins wait.

    then, i get the answer is that they are also in the dark and dunno when it can be fixed.

    i just wanna go and migrate my website to other hosting, figured my phpmyadmin is not complete anymore, files are all gone.

    ridiculous and very unhappy, i went to beg for a damn restore to 5 jan 17 and i m asked to wait for 15-30 mins, its fine.

    now 2 hours are gone, i try to access my cpanel and it says they auto suspended my account due to unusal acitvities level of usage of resoruces.

    i used to be imh big fan, got 3 different accounts with them, recommend all my friends and client to use it.

    Now, i am happy to say, i can tick this hosting company off my list now and forever.

    yes, this post is to express anger and if u are lucky, make sure u dont use them.

    oh btw, one thing, they do not have daily auto backup which allow u to download them.

    u need to go and call them and beg and do some lucky draw on a helpful tech which willing to walk extra miles to help u to restore it manually.


    Good-Bye IMH.

    I highly recommend you to switch old and not a very popular hosting because mostly popular hosting services are living with hype only.

    This is what i experience.

    Try namecheap. I have been using namecheap for 3 years now. Great customer support.

    Maybe your content is too much, too many plugins so burdensome shared hosting.

    Or perhaps their service is bad

    Their shared hosting is just ok. Not for high traffic sites but if you have a starter site, then its good.

    Hostwinds shared hosting is much better and faster. I am using them for years now and rarely get any problem.

    As far as I have experienced their shared hosting is very good, but i mostly like namecheap because of their live customer support.

    i seldom whine in the internet and like my user name says, stay positive, however, this is beyond acceptable.

    heres the update, IMH refused to refund ( after confirmation in previous email they are happy to refund , after they have spoiled all my websites and database for 4 days. )

    heres the print screen. I am going to escalate this to another level and will post it various forum for their sake of reputation "building"

    buy a stable linux vps somewhere, install virtualmin & webmin. Host whatever you want on it.. no more dealing with hosting companies.

    ehh no. Your home connection could have a dynamic IP which would fuckup everything as your IP might suddenly change, then all domains might point to a dead IP. a VPS is a 'virtual private server' you can rent those starting from 4$ a month up to a lot more. Also if your power goes off all your sh#t is offline!

    Just as a comparison to a webhosting. I used to run a 1gb ram, 1 core linux server and hosted about 35 mid-low-traffic wordpress sites on it without any problems.If you get a +2gb and mutlicore linux server you can host many many websites and sitespeed is (usually) better then that of a shared hosting. :)

    Using iPage hosting for my US based websites. And i got a server for my Netherlands websites which is located also in the NL.

    Which i suggest depends on what sites you run.. if all of your sites target a specific country, take a server for that country and host them there.
