bounceweb fucking sucks I need a new host

anyone know a host that is as cheap but not as shitty as bounceweb?

Been using hostgator, everything is easy & simple. Cheap too.

/thread

No shit, , why would anyone ever host there in the first place.

Anyways go with HostGator or MediaTemple.

Hate to say it because it’s owned by an OTer but it does seem Bounceweb just has some very overloaded, oversold servers.

You’re always going to have issues with an ‘unlimited’ hosting provider, but some companies are able to manage those issues better than others.

I was about to switch to MediaTemple the other day when I found out that it apparently sucks for MySQL-heavy frameworks like Drupal

So I’ll stick with Hostgator

It’s actually not too bad, running 14 wordpress sites and no issues. Also you can get your own private MYSLQ container add on for $20/month, it solves all the issues so if other sites get slowed down or have problems, yours will never be affected.

I found several reviews, comparisons, and even a Youtube video saying/showing that even with a mysql container it’s not as fast for drupal as a cheap shared host. They all said it was fine for WordPress, but Drupal is so database-intensive, I guess, that mt gs just can’t keep up.

Also, you have to go to the $75/mo Pro container to get more than 4GB mysql storage. It’s not uncommon for a drupal site to go over 4GB (because of caching, obviously)

I had a site last year that took the server out and fucked up all kinds of shit

Oh, well thanks for sharing that information.
I haven’t done too much research on it yet, only a tiny amount.
Good luck with your new host search.

Oi. I’ve PM’d about 10 people or so when asking about hosting through bounceweb warning them. But they all seem to sign up and hope for the best.

Just because they are a site supporter, or whatever they are. Does not in any way mean they deserve to be. And definitely does not mean they are a great business to deal with.

If anyone would read the reviews by the top hosting review sites out there you will see that they are not very good at all. Although the billing problems everyone talks about are their own faults. You allowed them to set up auto payments through paypal, so you are at fault.

The service is extremely subpar. The real technical support is non-existant.

Get out while you can and move to a service that you know will keep you up!

they bought my Domain to use? is it possible to use that same domain with another host after it expires?

You bought your domain. If they have a registrar lock on the domain, ask them to remove it. Ask for a registrar transfer authorization code and go to another registrar and renew it. Then it is 100% under your control, and not some sleezy ass company like bounceweb.

You will just have to change the nameservers to whatever your new host will be.

Bounceweb a few years ago was good, and I used to support him, but I ran into a lot of problems in my first month when I went back to them

words of advice for future websites, never ever buy your domain name from the place that is hosting it, always buy it from a reputable company like godaddy or namecheap

Completely agree! You are absolutely spot on. And that’s the real problem you face with people not companies reselling hosting and making a few bucks off it. They don’t have a real team to manage everything, it’s usually just one or a few people who try to handle everything and anything, which almost always ends up not working out.. I know a lot of people host basic sites, and most are just to collect a few bucks here and there, but you’ve got to treat your small home business as a real business. Always opt for a real hosting company and do your research.

My main company domains are still with GoDaddy (Even though I hate them), my mini-site domains are all with MediaTemple (I trust them a ton though, they aren’t going anywhere either). Would never buy a domain through any other host though.

people never learn

I think it’s just one guy with outsourced support handling very basic L1 support and billing issues.

I’m currently using BlueHost — anyone else use/used them? How does it compare to HostGator?

bluehost has a more restrictive cpanel (no wildcard subdomains, wtf), and if you need ssl, I think hostgator will end up being cheaper, but they’re a good shared host.

Why does everyone always gimp on hosting? I don’t understand.

their support is pretty shitty compared to hostgator but other than that I’ve never had problems with them

for some reason whenever I come across a client that already has their own hosting 70% of the time its bluehost

just sent Bounceweb a ticket requesting a EPP code. hopefully theyll give it to me

I <3 branzone.com Support has always been top notch.

Just switched and my site is 100% faster.

asmallorange was great until August/September-ish of last year. They moved from Atlanta to Durham and were completely horrible after.

Brent from Hostgator bought ASmallOrange with his own cash (i.e. not a corporate buy out).

yeah, don’t go with ASO.

A small company that used to be great, now they’re terribly fucking fail.

Do not listen to the advice of this user, he obviously has no clue about web hosting on the market.

He didn’t have a site at all before ASO, so it’s 100% faster!

I had ASO years before they were even "known", and they were awesome. But 4-5 years after they started getting popular they went to pure shit. I gave them another shot a year ago? And they were still horrible.. Really disappointing, they have awesome value plans but the service and performance isn’t that great..

Always had speed issues and loading issues. Sometimes the site would BLAZE around 500-700/kbs down, other times I couldn’t even get a simple html website to load, took 2+ min for a simple simple site. Support was pretty bullshit about it, but every hosting company will bullshit with you on the performance and loading times to avoid blame.. Even when they know what’s really going on..

Went with NameCheap on the transfer, and going to use HostGator for my Host. Thanks guys

we should start getting some referral credits or some shit

I have been pushing mediatemple for awhile. , still haven’t signed up for affiliate programs.

good way of getting banned

yeah, that’s not even what broke the camels back, bro.

and usually hosting support is shit because people are always asking them to install wordpress or some stupid shit. i’d be pretty annoyed if i was tech support and had to deal with idiots all day too.

from OT?

Funny. You seem to be bouncing for joy there.

I’ve turned to Amazon EC2 and don’t think I’ll turn back. It’s so fast. Just very hard to set up, most people find vanilla hosting to be easier.
