Hi

Do you have a personal experience you'll like to share? Up to now, I've gone with cheap hosts. My budget is low, but I know what I'm paying for. So far, I haven't had this occur to me. But, I do think many hosting companies come up without any idea what they're getting thierselves into. Perhaps there should be a neutral authority that authorizes all new hosting companies. Or it should be regulated. Something like the BBB for hosting.

My two cents.

i said this from what i saw .. for example .. someone took a space disk and domain from company .. and after few weeks .. the problems statrted to appear .. so this guy decide to deal with another company and he asked the first company to give him the domain (he pay for it .. it wasn't a gift) .. but the company said .. if u want ur domain .. u must take a space from us to give u .. but he did't agree .. and now .. his domain set forth sale ...
and there are many stories like this ..
of course there are companies give u the best service for good price .. am not saying all companies are cheaters .. i have my own company also ..
and am trying to give the best service for price every one can pay it

On the contrary we do want this type of company you just don't know it yet. It's like a free crash course in consumer awareness. Sure it's bad when people get screwed over but when they do they find out they have to pay more to get high quality and they typically do.

We started out with 2 of us. We had 1 guy that used to work for a local ISP and me. I have been working within the web industry for over 4 years. Support, Sales, Administration etc...

We hear stories everyday about companies that have folded in less than a month. But that's good in our view. They are just making more business for us. The customer soon realises that paying $1 for 1GB of space a month just is not practical. And most of the time they find out the hard way.

If you're a good company who treats their customers right you have nothing to be worried about.

The type of hosts who will suffer from these hosts that fold up in one month are new hosts. Hosts like that make it very hard for new hosts to start up as customers simply dont trust anone new.

Buyer beware.. is always good to know. There are thousands of good low cost providers, and there are thousands of good high cost providers. There are alot of low cost and high cost providers that are bad.

It would be nice if there was a board, or even on here, where there was a list of bad hosts.. That listed all the bad providers in one place. If there is, anyone have the link?

Exactly. Just another host that is bitter b-cuz they can't compete, prices too high services not great enough to make up for it. Yes we should make all the other hosts shut down b-cuz of this.

Well the fact is there are lots of bad businesses in general out there- thats what the BBB is for.

"what should we do with them" - don't buy services from them, simple. If no one buys services from them, they'll shut down.

RealtorHost, We did have discussion on this forum about making a host blacklist but it was decided that there would be too many legal implications.

However with the site on my sig I aim to make people more aware of bad hosts.
