I have been with them (reseller blowout) for the past 3 months. They are very very bad. I had read alot of bad things about them, and did not heed the advice, and found out the hard way. I have been using an uptime monitoring online service and was amazed to find the average uptime for the last two weeks (when I started to use it) was 67% uptime.
Some times our site is not available for upto 1 hour at a time. Or pages simply do not load (time out). We have 15 customers on the reseller account, and keep having to respond to their enquiries as to why their sites are always down. You will need 24/7 support on your site just to answer questions as to why the site is down, control panel errors, ftp not working. I have tried contacting there support over & over again, they do not respond/care.
I know the deal seems good, but it is 100% too good to be true. I am currently looking for another reseller company.
Check the Better Business Bureau report it is unsatisfactory. Host Department does not care about you, me or anybody, they just want your money.
Beleive me this company is an absolute nightmare, I promise.
I am new to this forum. In fact, I just joined.... just to reply to this thread. I am new to the world of hosting, and I went with hostdepartment.com to host my oscommerce site.
I have had nothing but problems with respect to bandwidth, up-time, etc. In fact right now, my site is slower then a whale pooping, and im the only one accessing it. I should have done my research - lesson learned.
