    I hear new signups also get a chocolate chip cookie, and a crunchwrap, along with a barry manilow cd.

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=7168513031 Look what else he bought. What are the odds those are Template Monster or Boxed Art templates? I also wonder if the website is Terabyte-Webhosting.com?
    If you have to operate your company behind the scenes or under a fake name, maybe it's time to leave the industry and start something fresh.

    since there such a new company does TB mean to be anounced??? sorry im new to this webhosting thing .......... oh wait i just got off the the phone with my tech ( not really).... and he told me theres 1024 gigs in a terabyte

    he said this was such a sweet deal we coudnt pass it up so i ordered 2 accounts one for him and one for me

    so if anyone needs any storage space im a reseller now

    my friend says with the 'Free 70GB Web tools' we could prolly just ask there tech to put it on there server

    i cant imagine where you get such a harddrive, they must work for westerndigital or that one out of china

    1TB bandwidth is nothing impressive, most dedicated providers give you that much. (1000 GB).

    It's the terabyte of disk space I'm interested in.

    Someone should buy it and try to use it all.

    Lol, would be interesting... I dont know if that is legit?

  12. wow.. Some one buy this and tell us if this is for real. If this is i am so in.

    I certainly aren't going to risk my money on that.
    More doesn't always mean better.

    Of course 1TB bandwidth is nothing impressive, but for 10 bucks ? C'mon!

    Bid is who wins the information to sign up. Not the monthly cost.

    Sure if it was the monthly I wouldn't mind toying around a little.

    So, I no longer need any backup devices for my PC.

    I am using two 120GB drives. Now I got very lovely host to mirror all my data on my PC...

    Better FTP my files onto the server then

    I just wanted to check it out, so I signed up for an account... first thing I did was run df -h.

    PHP Code:
    df -h
    Filesystem            Size  Used Avail 
    Use% Mounted on
    /dev/sda6            1012M  254M  707M  27% /
    /
    dev/sdb1              74G   33M   70G   1% /backup
    /dev/sda1              99M   26M   69M  27% /boot
    /dev/sda5              53G  5.5G   45G  11% /home
    none                  493M     0  493M   0
    % /dev/shm
    /dev/sda7            1012M   33M  928M   4% /tmp

    /dev/sda3             6.9G  317M  6.3G   5% /var 
    Doesn't look anywhere near to a terabyte to me

    There are a ton of hosts out there like this, and most of them have no problems. They can offer 500MB or 1,000,000,000MB the average person will still use less than 500MB.

    yeah and in thier T.O.S it probably states that the servers arent to be used for downloads, video files or a storage server. kep in mind i diddnt read thier t.o.s but thats what most unlimited hosts do.

    Same goes for hosts who offer large diskspace/transfers.

    If you look, he gives you 75 gb of free software (8 DVDs worth) all templates, scripts, software....

    Now don't get me wrong, I'm in this business with my own servers... but for $1.04, how could I go wrong

    Keep your friends close and your enemies closer...

    At any rate... I was uploading the software they give you when you sign up.

    I got an email stating that they were having hardware problems (obviously fell short of a TB by 880GBs LOL) and the accounts weren't really suspended...

    By the way, I never, ever saw CPanel's HDA5 go 99% before... it was pretty cool! Also found a bug in CPanel, it emailed me saying my account was 37984% over Quota.

    All in all, I did get a free domain name relative to my Luxury Car Club! And I get to insure my own Hosting Services outweigh "some" of the competition, when you include this one.

    I'm having fun.
