    Talking CrystalServe Hosting Review

    Hey there peoples,

    CrystalServe, if you have ever heard of it, is simply the best web hosting service ever. Seriously, if you want a web hosting company that offers packages packed full of features, staff that are ultra friendly, useful and speedy to respond to anything you need, then this is the web hosting company for you.

    I have been with CrystalServe for little over 2 months now and to this minute, they are still top of the hosting world in my opinion.

    Take a look at their website, sign up for their service if you wish, and you'll see why I think they're so brilliant.

    Thanks CrystalServe,
    Craig Riches

    Is it safe to assume that this is a fake review?

    I'd love to know where these Web Hosting companies get their Unlimited space Hard Drives from.

    Not fake, this guy's a customer - http://crystalserve.com/forums/user-criches. The free thing was temporary, it's free with a domain purchase now.

    Thanks for the review Craig.

    All of you who thought that my review was a fake are completely and utterly wrong. My domain with them is "craigriches.co.cc", the only thing that I haven't finished yet is the "CRiches Hosting" part of the website.

    Anyways, I think you'll find the website loads relatively quickly, really good speedy host CrystalServe are.

    Domain was crwd.co.cc since signup, just switched to the new one a couple days ago. If you look on the forum you'll see posts dating back to February.

    Are those posts pysical posts about his domain, or general discussions because general discussion would mean nothing and would not back up your case

    To be quite honest with you, I'm getting tired of you lot saying this is a fake review, or anything of the sort...

    IT IS NOT A FAKE REVIEW, IT WAS PHYSICALLY POSTED BY MYSELF TO THANK CRYSTALSERVE FOR THEIR REALLY GOOD SERVICE, WHAT CAN'T YOU GET ABOUT THAT?!

    I HAD TO POINT THE NAMESERVERS TOWARD CRYSTALSERVE SO MY DOMAIN WOULD WORK AND DIRECT MY DOMAIN TOWARD THEIR SERVERS, THE SO CALLED "WHOIS" FOR .CO.CC DOMAINS ISN'T ACCURATE BECAUSE IT'S FREE, BECAUSE I CAN'T AFFORD A PAID TLD DOMAIN, OK?!

    If this hasn't answered all of your questions or made it clear enough, PLEASE DON'T HESITATE TO ASK, OR MAKE STUPID COMMENTS THAT ARE INACCURATE OR JUST PLAINLY STUPID!

    In my experience, it is.
    If you had that other domain hosted there for the time you stated, why didn't you give that one instead?

    The issues are your domain information speaks other words, you registered on their forums a day ago on the 21st of April and spent a whole hour it seems on it, there is so much debate about the legitimacy from the information you have provided.

    I can see some have blatantly stated this as a fake review, it is actually starting to look that way, I cannot speak either way on it but from what the moderators have outlined with a few of the other members it just doesn't work well in your defense, no offence at all.

    Well you got me there, nothing about his domain. I sent his order confirmation to the mods with timestamps and everything, hopefully that will clear it up.

    If I was going to post a fake review about a company I am affiliated with, I would go out of my way to make it not look suspicious, which is clearly not the case here.

    Just thought I would put my two cents in...

    co.cc "domains" are not domains at all, but subdomains of co.cc. This is why whois is sending you astray. I'm sure some of you already know this, but I am stating this for the others who don't.

    Craig: Maybe you should put more length into your reviews next time. This way your reviews might gain some credibility and will most likely not be deemed as suspicious or something of the sort.

    Thanks for being one of the only people, along with Sam Barrow, to post a comment that is actually useful to me, I appreciate it highly. I will try to do so in the future. Thanks for the advice.

    To be fair, its more work to find out what is what when it comes to free domains (e.g, .tk, .co.cc). We don't even allow them to be used for the main hosting account in a way to help prevent fraud/spammer signups. Free domains are mainly used by scammers/spammers. That's the rep they have got now. Whether you run a hobby or business site, if you want to be taken seriously, you should get a paid domain such as .com, net or .co as they're definitely worth the investment of around just $8.88 year (from namecheap.com). That's like $0.74 per month or $0.02 per day. You will more than make your money back by using a paid domain.

    Totally up to you of course.
