I have the inexpensive (6.95/month) Windows Shared plan. (Not sure of the official name). I'm hosting a small site with ASP + a few Access databases.
Price. Decent package for the money.
First off, it's nice to have a host charge *each month and still get discount pricing. Paying up front for a whole year is nice for price, but sucks when you want to leave.
Very little down time. So far I have only seen a couple of burps but in general the uptime has been excellent.
Good communication from support on server outages and things that effect a plan.
Excellent availability of support personnel. There always seems to be someone on the Chat support and they respond and try to help. The ticket system is good as well. There is also a forum which they look at often.
The control panel is H-Sphere, which is ok to me. No complaints there although I know others like different ones.
Lots of supported ASP apps, 10 subdomains for the price. etc etc etc. See their website...
Sometimes the response time (especially thru FTP) seems a bit sluggish. Could be me, but it happens alot to me when I'm downloading my databases...they seem to 'hang' or stall downloading for extended periods.
10 meg email account limit on server is a bit small for my tastes but I'm also not paying much.
Other than that, so far, I give them a big thumbs up and would recommend them to others looking for discount Windows hosting.
Just as a note, you can change that 10MB to whatever you like, it is based on summary disk usage which is email/web/database all in one 10MB is just the default.
Database downloads, Access or SQL? Access may be getting accessed by another source and slowing down as it locks/unlocks, I have seen this before.
Stephen forgot to insert his signature. But he works for JodoHost so thats our response to your negatives
As he mentioned, if you are downloading an Access database, locks can be an issue (its hows Windows works). You shouldn't see this issue with regular files, or email or other types of databases.
And as he mentioned, 10MB is the default email account size. You can change it to 100MB without being charged a cent That's the way H-Sphere works.
I'm glad you liked JodoHost. Please do comply with WHT rules and post a domain here or PM ldcdc with it.
