    Holy crap! What a deal? Twice the hosting for 1/8th of the price of what I'm paying now! LOL Thanks for the share! Did you decide to go with these guys? If so, how are they?

    Does anyone have any experiences with these guys to share?

    I will be going with them in the near future I think. I just haven't got the time at the moment, I have got a couple of applications being made for me that will make reselling easier but I would prefer to get them ready beforehand instead of wasting my money purchasing the hosting and then not using it for a couple of months. I will write back once I have tried them out though.

    I spoke to their staff in regards to overuse and if any of my customers start hosting warez etc and they said that it is not my problem, they will simply ban the account. Yes, this means one less paying customer but that is a lot of work being cut out.


    EDIT: Thought this was a different thread, it was Heart Reseller Hosting that told me the above.

    Do let us know! I'll be interested to hear. I think I may give them a go though. That's just too good to pass up.

    I don't think it's necessarily true that you get what you pay for. If you look around you can find the same deal with vastly different prices, on almost everything.....but you do need to do a little analasis

    You can get a dedicated quad core Xeon, which they claim to be using, with unlimited bandwidth at 10mbps for $180 (or less).

    So 45 accounts at $4, pays for it.

    With a 10Mb connection the 'unlimited' bandwidth is limited to about 2.5 TB each way, up and down, for the server.

    If you put a few thousand sites on a server with a 10M connection the response is going to be very slooooooowwww.

    So, for a link farm, where you want bots to visit and aren't interested in humans, then it might be OK, but if you have anything but static pages, visitors aren't going to wait for a response.......

    Some of them require you to pay yearly and they disappear in 2-3 months not worth it to go with such hosting

    What a crock of crap:

    and then they say:
    So its unlimited but there is diskspace and bandwidth limits - someone doesn't know their arse from their elbow.

    Like a few people have said - whoever runs that hosting 'business' will cut and run with your hard earned cash fella.

    Only fun thing you could do is takeout the hosting and then see how many accounts of 5Tb each you can create before their never-ever-filling harddrives go 100% and servers fall over :D

    if it sounds to good to be true it probably is to good to be true.

    sounds like overselling to me.

    never buy hosting of DP and places like that - only got with big companies - they will want to help you out to keep their reputation some guy on DP doesn't care if your hosting is down for a week you are paying him a couple of dollars.

    Plus it will be very slow because they oversell it.

    From my own experience over the past years, the word "unlimited" is nothing but a lure. However, this one at least has a cap on its space and traffic.
    In any case, never put your money-making virtual real estates with any of these webhosts.

    They are for those starting out with a tight budget and those hosting warez, bulk monetized content websites and the likes.

    Thread with caution.

    Good luck and best wishes!
