    Well,
    I was thinking "that's something they might be able to pull, with very cheap bandwidth (too lazy to do the math)". For instance , Stargate posted an offer like that on WHT a couple days ago.
    However, they also offer 1 GB disk space....so... LOL

    Because when you go in for those 1 cent frys, you are also going to buy a $1.50 coke and a $2.50 sandwich. There is really nothing else to buy after you have purchased your reseller account, maybe an upgrade, but I imagine those prices are about the same.

    Exactly, someone they can get to sign up for the service, then terminate your account for excessive use after you cross a certain amount of transfer which won't be much. Then they walk away with your money.

    You know I find it very hard to believe & so does everyone else I may add, that ever really good offer, is not lagit. God knows, that I could never use that much bandwidth. I may host a few "opne source" programs, but nothing like an iso, such as rat hat linux or anything.

    Let's try this another way: Everyone knows McDonalds actually has enough fries to sell them for .01, especially considering that's only valid along with another purchase. What I can't understand is how anyone who's spent more than a few minutes looking into hosting wouldn't also know that GISol cannot in any way actually provide 150gb transfer for $7.95/mo (0.05 per gb) and stay in business. It is flat out impossible, since bandwidth cannot be purchased anywhere near that cheaply.


    Sure, YOU won't use 150gb, but anyone else could host a download mirror to a game site (or linux isos) and use 150gb in a single day. You can rest assured that anyone who does this will be terminated with some outright lie about "using too many server resources".

    There are good legit offers out there Musaca, its just at .05/ per GB for Bandwidth it is impossible. If it is too good to be true, than most likely it is.

    Nothing is wrong with 1 gig of space, it is just offering 150 GB for 7.95 that is the problem.

    I sent them an email asking them about how long they've been in business and other questions just to test their support out and they emailed me back with stuff that has NOTHING to do with what I asked about. That's pretty stupid.. lol

    LOL, well, if you read through their TOS, I believe you will then understand why they could afford to give out so much bandwidth.

    It is actually catchy you see, and slim chance you will get to suck up 150GB BW.

    To avoid unfair resource distribution at no time shall Customer upload any file larger than 10 megabyte.
    You need 15k users to download your 10MB file in order to reach that given limit.

    Sounds like a pretty good deal to me. A search of WHT(gisol.com) and the BBB(Global Internet Solutions) will show you how they can offer that type of plan.

    Hmm yeah about what I'd expect for a NICKEL a gig...

    Bureau File Experience
    We rate this company as having an unsatisfactory business performance record.

    Complainants allege that the company failed to provide the promised service, that customer service was lacking or unavailable, that the company failed to respond to emails or technical support tickets. Some customers complained that the service was slow or did not operate at all.

    The company generally failed to respond to the specific complaint allegations, but in some cases did state that if the customer requested a refund they did supply one in accordance with the contract. Many complaints were closed as unresolved, meaning the customer was not satisfied with the company's response or the company failed to address the complainants allegations. Some complaints are closed as unanswered.

    The Better Business Bureau does not endorse, recommend, or disapprove of any company, product, or service.

    You can't compare fries to bandwidth. People eat all their fries, and if they dont, the unused fries cannot be given to someone else. Bandwidth on the other hand....



    (though not in this case because 150 isnt "overselling," it's "idiotic")

    If you search on WHT you`ll se that GISol is one of the worst hosts.

    The funny thing is that they wrote on their site that "Offer Expires 06/13/03" and the date is updated daily! Lol! This means that if you visit tomorrow you`ll se "Offer expires 06/14/03".

    At first many time ago they started to provide "unlimited bandwidth" then changed it to 25GB (for the cheapest plan) then 45 and now 150!

    I live in a small town and the used car guy up the street does the same thing. I can't imagine who he thinks he is fooling. Same here. Who the customers with this host? Anybody want to speak up?

    So how much bandwidth do you think they'd let you "really" use, before they tried to pull a fast one on you?

    We might as well stop talking about them, we've figured out their little game and here is the thread for reference for anyone who does their research.

    I am SO glad that I came in here... I was 3 seconds away from signing up for an annual package with GIS. I LOVED the ability to host 2 domains on one package.

    I am currently with PowWeb, happy with them, except that they limit the number of files to 15,000. I have more files than that awaiting to be uploaded, so I need a new provider. GIS never replied to my question about any cap on number of files allowed within the allocated 1gb.

    Anybody has any recommendations? Here are my needs:
    (1) About 500-700mb space
    (2) Unlimited number of files (numerous, small sized JPGs)
    (3) Good server uptime
    (4) Ability to host maybe 2 or 3 domains on one package

    I don't really need a lot of monthly bandwidth. Cannot imagine it getting any close to 100mb a day... for now.

    PS. I thought I was the only one who was shrewd enough to have read GIS's 30 days $ back guarantee... only if they fail to setup an account? What kind of guarantee is that?? (update: they failed to respond to this question too when I emailed them)

    Boy am I glad I searched this forum for "Global Internet Solutions" and found this thread. They now say expires June 17th.

    This board is the greatest tool for web designers, resellers etc that I have ever seen or heard of. Thank you one and all.

    Yeah, I just saw their banner ad on there today, too. I usually completely ignore them, but it stood out because it said gisol. I was like, hanh? Wasn't there just a thread on their crazy plans?
