    Who hosts your website and are you happy with them?

    BTW: Can anybody tell me the standard weight of a bag of sugar in the USA?

    4lbs now. It used to be 5lbs.

    As for hosting, I use theprimehost.net. They're cheap and they have great support. I rarely have to wait more than a couple of hours for a response. Darrell is a great guy and is very attentive to his customers.

    Dr. Evil - you show me a 4 lb. bag of sugar and I'll show you a parrot in a pine tree.

    Don't let the revenooers catch you with that!

    Better get out your photoeditor, Deelz (to show the parrot in the pine tree)...Kroger's got the 4 lb bags, too.

    You can get Domino in the 5 lb. sack, but you can get Kroger Cheapie Store Brand in 4 lb. sacks.

    (I'm 99% sure it was Kroger and if it wasn't it was Farmer Jack's Cheapie Brand. But I remember seeing the 4 lb. bag and thinking "Geesh, now they're even shrinking the bags of sugar.")

    Yeah I was thinking the "Farmer Jack" angle there myself. Hillbilly Hootch and all that.

    Oops we stole Austin's thread :rolleyes:

    OK Austin - I use TH Media, very happy, hoping for some progress on the 'multiple domains under one account' feature though (nudge, nudge, Tom)

    Aquasoft, very happy. Very nice people. Price is a *little bit* high though.

    DPI Systems, very unhappy with the fact that they screwed us out of commissions on their Shareasale program.

    Mine are:

    THMedia - Great! (Hi Tom <IMG src=http://www.abestweb.com/smilies/wave.gif>)
    Interland - I must be the only one here happy with them. I know another ABW member has recently left them after terrible support.
    Superb.net - I have 2 virtual accounts with them. uptime is great.
    PenHost.com - only signed up with them this morning. Main reason is multiple domains. Too early to tell yet.

    Hosts I have dropped.
    ICOM.com - terrible. <IMG src=http://www.abestweb.com/smilies/mad.gif><IMG src=http://www.abestweb.com/smilies/curse.gif>

    I just switched from Interland to RackSpace.com and love it! No more waiting 13 hours for a support ticket and no more unreturned phone calls!

    Big thumbs up to RackSpace.com.

    I use Westhost for 2 of my sites and their support and service is fantastic.

    Been using Eclipsehosting for another site but they've just had an awful time "upgrading" their service (their old server company, Alabanza, apparently threw the switch and shut down all of their servers without any advanced warning and ahead of their agreed-upon schedule, which resulted in a terrible changeover to their new servers). Haven't had a reply to emails I've sent to Eclipsehosting for about 3 weeks. I'll probably end up leaving them but this particular domain is registered through verisign which itself makes changing DNS and other details soooo long-winded and difficult..aargh!

    By the way, I've heard very bad things about Interland as well.

    For most of my US/affiliate based sites, I use infodoma.com - I kinda want them to put their prices up in case they become overrun as they are gaining a very good reputation for support/uptime/all that kind of thing.

    Also use venturesonline.com - happy generally, but I wish they would leave their bloody servers alone. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    In the UK, I've used internetters, webfusion, ghoulnet (who seem to have put my new client on a broken server and he is not a happy bunny), supanames, and more. The only one I can happily still recommed is webfusion, though they are a little expensive.

    I use Pair.com - they're not cheap, but I am incredibly happy with them. Frankly, it sounds like the people who are using TH Media are really outspoken about being happy there, so if I were looking, I think I'd try going there first!

    Am I the only person who buys sugar without looking at either the size or the price? About once or twice a year, I buy one of the smaller boxes (obviously sugar doesn't get used a lot around here), and if I'm making cookies or something for the holidays, I buy the big bag.

    THMedia -- Very happy
    Trident.net -- I've used them for over 5 years. Used to be really good, but now have had serious problems. Plus I found out they run plans off the same servers under another domain to compete with companies like POW Web at half the price for the exact same package! Did they bother to tell their loyal customers..NO! Will be switching my last domain with them soon. But like someone else said, it's registered with Verisign and that's a nightmare just to switch the DNS. Took me 3 weeks when I switched another site over to THMedia.

    Also recently read where Verisign and Interland are in hot water with suits filed against them for spam campaign and tricking folks into registering with Verisign. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img]

    Janiss, you're not the only one with the sugar. I never buy it either and had no idea they pulled the old give you less instead of upping the price. I did however notice that tatic right away when all the potato chip people pulled that.

    FutureQuest. Finally got the resellers discount and save money on all the accounts we have there now. Service is 5*, uptime is 5*, all the perks except no MySQL until you cough up for a gold package.

    Just waiting for THMedia to have mulit-domain option and will be starting new sites there. I look forward to it.

    What's the standard sugar package in the UK? Must be a kilo, yes? Just wondering.

    Hey this is my first post here.This is really a fantastic place. Keep up the good work guys.

    I have my present site with siteturn and it sucks !!. I plan to move my site soon.

    Do any of you guys have experience with OLM.net. CNET had given good review about them (not sure its true or they are affiliate selling ?? )

    Please advise...

    Do you think there would be a market for 2kilo bags?

    Do you think it could be affiliate marketed? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] :rolleyes: [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    Here in sunny (very hot) California.... its still the usual 5lb bag of sugar BUT... they are very slowly introducing us to the 4lb idea and they are even making the deal a lil more sweet by placing the 4lbs of sweet sugar in a carton..rather than the usual sack which is prone to ripping open at the very sound of an approaching grocery cart. Us Californians are used to paying a premium for just about everything but I have started to save some money by using the discount webhosting services for a percentage of my "testing" websites and I have found that many perform reasonably well. BTW, do you think I should have a new paragraph by now?

    So the best "cheap hosts" are:

    Saving Hosting
    UCV Hosting
    Hostica
    Digital Space

    These are all available at under $3 per month. .... and I really like that. :cool:
