    Greetings, been a long time since I visited here but i have a question :)

    Faithfully I have been paying for hostgators dedicated service. The basic 174 a month server. Uptime and reliability is great but their customer support is just disgusting. I recently contacted them for a backup service. Something other than on the server or local. Even if it was a paid service I was willing to opt in.

    They have no such service and instead referred me to a 3rd party which is expensive as all hell but provides an awesome and quality backup service. It was an awesome referral.

    Stating that I went back to hostgator and requested a free month and discount on the following month to offset the cost of the 3rd party service which they....well i want to say promptly denied but it took 45 mins of chat headache to get an answer. I was transferred and answered within 30 seconds. A big fat no. I am a 3 year dedicated customer without billing issues!

    They did offer me 50% off this billing cycle instead. I denied that and paid my 174$, signed up to the backup service they referred me too and i am currently looking for reliable hosting elsewhere.

    The service I pay for has the following specs:


    Intel Xeon Dual Core 2.3GHz (4 threads)
    100 Mbps Uplink
    4 GB RAM
    500 GB RAID-1 Drives
    10 TB Bandwidth
    2 Dedicated IPs

    I would probably want better processors but is there a cheaper and reliable provider someone can recommend?

    Ouch, that's a rip off for such an old plan, checkout our BST in the hosting section of the forum. We have been providing servers on BlackHatWorld for a long run and pretty well known in the community.

    Basically anything is better than hostgator. Have a look at lowendbox for some deals on vps/dedis

    +1 for Poweruphosting. They're really good and quite cheaper compared to other hosting providers. You should check out their BST.

    Servers from hostsailor.com and ewallhost.com are worth your attention.
    All their servers are well-balanced and uptime is high and network is fully-redundant.
    Support is active for 24 hours.
