I purchased a standard Windows based hosting program and 2 domains from w3.ccihosting.com last week.

From day one, the hosting was very slow and my sites would not come up very quickly. The 2nd day my hosting was down for several hours, and every day until today my hosting was down about every other hour for 15-30 mins each time.

Keep in mind, all these problems were BEFORE ever even distributing my domain or using it largely, so there was nearly zero traffic through my domains.

Well, today I started a support ticket telling them that my hosting kept going down constantly and was very slow. Here is the response I got:


Dear Client,

Today we have received a massive DDoS Attack that was directed to the the IP address: xxxxxxxxxxx . After a lot of tests we found that your domain name recently added xxxxxxxxxxxxx was the problem.

Looks like your site was under Attack, and was affecting all our network.

For this reason we proceeded to turn Off your account and suspended it.


So I guess I'm SOL and out of the money I paid them. Luckily I used a credit card instead of what they wanted me to use, Paypal, so I can file a chargeback.

why did you go for a windows hosting? did you want to run asp in it?

windows is made for the desktop computer, and it sucks on the server platform. Thats why only about 10% of the world uses windows for their server, and most of them do it cos they don't know linux.

Cyber cast regular hosting worked for me but there is a hosting provider called Iks hosting - stay away from them. They take your money but don't give you hosting. Absolutely unbelieveable company :D

I have just hosted my site with cyber cast as I needed anonymity but my site is remarkably slow to load and sometimes it doesn't even appear. I only paid one month so not too concerned as I wil go elsewhere as I probably need a European hosting company to improve load times.

Before using them I had heard that they were bulletproof, but I just had a domain suspended because they received a C&D letter. So they are not bulletproof, or reliable.

Cybercast International Hosting is a joke. I was a VPS customer for over a year and then they deleted my account and told me I couldn't even grab a backup of my database. What a load of shit.

Why did they do that? Well, aparently I didn't pay an invoice in January, but I paid all other invoices (for months after January) and bought an SSL from them. They are total shit. It's not that big a loss because CCI hosting was always down or really slow. Their servers were crap and their support was some of the worst on the planet. SCUBAGS!

Stay away from Cyber Cast...they have been long known for their poor business ethics. I honestly cannot believe they are still in business.

Yea, it's crazy that they can do stuff like that. I am making it a personal mission to do a little negative ORM. They are such assholes that I am actually willing to waste time in my life to make sure no one else uses them.

Cyber Cast is so fucking terrible it makes me sick.

Anyone have any suggestions for a decent offshore host? I see securehost.com doesn't look to bad....any thoughts on a solid host for a pharma site? High risk merchant account suggestions are always welcome as well. Thanks guys.

I have been using cci for a few months now. I have never had a problem. I have contacted them numerous times and they are very helpful with their explanations and have made changes for me, also. I have to say, I have no idea how to navigate their control panel, but I figure it is just because I am new and most of this doesn't make sense to me ;) I paid the year up front. If anyone has a suggestion for an easier to naviagate, add or upload content to hosting site, please let me know...this really is my biggest problem with cci.
