    Hi all,

    I feel myself need to inform other BHW members about a bad hosting provider that you should never get involved with, that is the Hostable hosting. I had got an account their for few months and and just paid for another quarter and after few days, my account got terminated without any email, any notice. I had to submit ticket and they said my account was hacked and they received some complaints about that, blah blah.. I chatted with their supporters and I was told to be waited and my tickets will be escalating to their Administrator for review. But I have been waiting for nearly 2 weeks now and they haven't replied me. I did submitted 2 other tickets but they keep silent.

    Over the past 7 years marketing online, I have been hosting my sites in at least 6 web-hosting providers but no one was like this hosting company. My advice is keep away from Hostable!

    I lost my 10 make money blogs in their hosting, I had not backed up them, I now have to put all these sites parking on Sedo to get some bucks from my current traffics.

    I have asked them for a refund but they haven't replied me. I will host all my new sites in off-shore hosting providers, I I heard these companies don't care about any legal or copy right complaints.
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 2

    Yep, if your content is illegal or have copyright issue, choose offshore hosting

    I've heard of someone else having the same problem as you with them. It's very unfortunate.

    Best of luck with your new provider.

    I had a package with Hostable that I ordered to use for my private network.

    This sites were a mixture or HTML sites and 1 Wordpress site with very little traffic.

    Like the OP, I received a notice from Hostable that one of my sites was hacked.

    Of course., they took all of my sites down and could not provide any proof that any of my sites were hacked. Because I keep backups of everything, I immediately changed the DNS servers, switched hosts and that leg of my network has been fine every since.

    DO NOT use Hostable!!!! They have horrible tech support and even worse customer service.

    I don't care what kind of offer they make you. They will slam you without warning and leave you in the lurch!

    I bought Hostable for 3 years for $1 and it works fine for a simple WordPress blog. No complaints from me but at my price I can't complain either.
