I need experience/opinions on FrontDrive


I've narrowed it down to FrontDrive (and Webmasters).

Could anyone share their experiences or opinions? Any but not just limited to:

Customer Service
Tech Support
Uptime
Any Billing problems

thanks

Try doing a search of WHT and see if there are any comments previously posted about them on these forums.

Good luck.

I will have to ask the same question as gadgetgrl, any one besides frontdrive, have real comments on frontdrive.com.

I did a search and nothing real turned up.
Thanks

Hmmm.

I have photographic memory, and I SWEAR that's the same graphics, template etc that were used in availhosting.com - before it went out of business!

Just to let you know, they post here quite frequently under the username FDrive.

This explains the web page:
http://webhostingtalk.com/showthread...436#post446436

However, it doesn't explain the WHOIS information.

Hmmm thanks for the pointer. Indeed, the WHOIS info is confusingly similar.

Jeremy, the guy who ran availhosting.com, is my roommate. He was 17 at the time, so he couldn't get his own PO Box, etc. I did most of the front-end stuff for him, designed his webpage, etc. I've always been the designer, he's always been the computer science geek

When he went under with Avail, I decided to rework some of the things that we had worked on together and do it myself this this time. And more importantly, do it right this time.

Heh, nice detective work, though.. he's gunna get a kick out of this
