I do have to say though that we have had an account at OpenHosting for many years... and thus far we have had no serious problems at all. This is actually remarkable, as in the meantime, we have changed most of our other hosts.
If you have a problem do feel free to let me know, and I will chase it. OH do seem to be a good bunch though.
I've got several domains at fourwebspace.com (formerly 4web-space.com) and am having problems as well.
It all started a month or so ago when all of my users stopped receiving email on their webmail client (domain/mewebmail). It wasn't until a trouble ticket was entered that I found out that the entire webmail interface had been changed. OK... several calls later and I got my users straightened out - thank goodness that I don't have thousands of users.
Then this past week I tried to add a new email user. The new user was not able to log into webmail - first test. Then I find that any emails addressed to that user go directly to the catchall - bypassing the user that is set up and verified in the admin panel.
Now... I can't even FTP into my own site.
The website (fourwebspace.com) is unsuable at best. I have sent off emails using the form on the site. I have also finally sent an email directly to one of the past people that helped on one of my earlier trouble tickets - back when their response time was much better.
I paid the full year in advance back in February - after having a completely trouble-free year with them.
The problem is I had similar problems a year ago. I was hosting with Endore and had just prepaid the full year when they closed up shop and that is when I found 4web-space.
They have sorted out 97% of my challanges . A lot of hair pulling but we got there . I think they may be in the process of moving your sites to a new server . They seem pretty good at it once they get going .
Thanks for that reassurance. Will give it a little time to settle down. I might be a little gunshy due to the problems I had with Endore just going offline with no notice - after I had just paid for my 4th year with them in advance.
I wanted to follow up on this thread. It seems I never saw the big "you must do this" announcement that would have solved half of my problems. It still would have been a lot of work to get the sites happy again on the new server but it could have possibly been done without my sites going wacko - we're still working through all of the details (ie my DB works for the main domain but not for the sub-domains like it used to).
To be honest I have accounts with 5 hosts and 4webspace is with out a doubt the most unreliable and the slowest to respond to tickets.
There are services that just stop working on a consistent basis . It seems just when the working day starts in New Zealand . It is just finishing in the UK, so problems like FTP failing (Which is down at present and prompted this post) or the mail server stopping or ASP pages failign . They are down for a Whole day . With the 9am - 5pm service that you offer . It maybe ok for UK clients, But certainly not people in another time zone.
So I am not a the happiest customer of Open Hosting or fourwebspace.com
