    I ignored my own advise and used a cheap hosting provider - one cloudy.
    Well they have been nothing but trouble - websites extremely slow on their servers and in the last 3 months every other week I check my sites and they are down.

    They went down again last week and so I was forced to move all sites away from them.

    I had paid for a year up front on 3 separate hosting accounts with them so I requested partial refund due to bad service (Even though they offer 99.9% up-time guarantee) and they refused so there you go.

    My advise to everyone is avoid them.

    MODS: If this is not allowed sorry and please delete.

    Same here. It seemed like a nice deal for PBN hosting, so I went with them and I get a lot of downtime and lots of movement of servers, which means slower sites. It isn't a big loss either, sine it was only $2 for 3 years lol.

    Haha yea every other day server nodes being migrated to new locations.

    I bought two basic plans and a reseller plan. Total I think was $40 for a year or something like that. It's not a big deal either , it's a lesson I have learned that if it sounds too good to be true it probably is. And like I have said in so many threads before - how can a hosting provider afford to offer a good service when they are giving away the accounts so cheap?

    And yes - I am stupid for ignoring my own advise :-/

    ^^^^^^ this. It's impossible to have good quality hosting without reasonable price.

    Especially when I see "lifetime hosting" gives me chills down my spine...
