    Hey,

    I just found an incredible deal on hosting. However, I haven't tested it yet because I don't have a spare domain. So, I need someone to test it. If possible of course. It says that you only need to pay 4.97GBP(approx $6) for lifetime hosting. WTF no monthly, yearly or weekly, it's one off payment. Sounds incredible but also weird.

    The link:
    Code:

    It would be cool if someone tested it for us :).

    Jack

    They use http://reelplayhosting.com/ for their dns servers, so I guess that this is their host.

    These 2 websites are not by the same owner, so I dont trust this offer

    If it looks too good to be true, it probably is.

    I think it's a scam. tell me...why would anyone want to give you lifetime hosting when he could easily charge less than what the others do and make more money?

    It is based on a UK domain and with the bad grammer, I'd bet it is a scam.

    Yeah, I see the same thing, they are running through multiple hosting service servers, which isn't uncommon, however, it still screams scam to me. Try at your own risk.

    Just a guy who has no idea how to make a website, much less run web hosting, which will definitely lead to you not getting lifetime hosting, whether he has the intentions to or not.

    It will probally be as bad, if not worse, than free hosting!

    At my computer... how else would I be on a forum?
    If they didn't even put in the effort of getting a website made...

    They used a free wordpress template. That must be one quality business.

    They would definitely not be able to support the hosting for $6. They could have made the scam more realistic by making it sound like a plausible deal, like $80 and less than unlimited storage/bandwidth.

    I got intrigued and tested it yesterday.

    It seems legit.

    One month free trial and 6 dollars per year, not lifetime. I cant find the lifetime option?

    There are lots of under $3 month unlimited hosting. How can anyone not afford that?

    It is for the lifetime of the host, which is usually a couple of months :p
