Thread: powweb?

  1. #1


    I'm wondering how is the hosting company powweb? i had bad experience with my old hosting company because of speed. does anybody experience speed problems with them?

    i was going to sign up for hostgator, but they can only have 25 connections at once.

    How many connections are you planning to have? I think any more than that should not be on a shared plan.

    Do a search and you will find many reviews on powweb

    I wouldn't go with PowWeb, but that might just be me: They've gotten quite alot of bad reviews, last I checked their prices, they're obviously overselling and they've been associated with ad-wares and the likes, making them a big no no

    Let's see.....
    They have throttles (max_questions) on the mySQL databases there. Depending on the type of script it could max out. Some forum software seems to work ok though. You can check their moderated forums ( for any info on restrictions.

    Everything happens for a reason I make up.

    I can only agree that you might look up some reviews on powweb.

    If you insist on having a site with many concurrent users, you might think about getting a VPS or dedicated server.
    Good Luck!
