Thread: Bad Hosts

    Bad Hosts

    Dear Admins/moderators & community Members,
    I'm hereby suggesting that we create a record for Bad hosts categorize by Type oservice being offered either shared hosting; VPS, Dedicated etc...
    I think by setting up a record of this kind will force people to stop fooling with people's money. I mean when when a webhost knows that if he misbehaves with his customer he will be report on that record that will spoiled his business he will be afraid to do it.

    Thanks in Advance for your attention for this thread

    Actually, no it's not.
    It's allowed to a degree that individuals are allowed to share (limited) experiences with hosts, however, even sharing that specific opinion can get you a stern "warning", so be careful

    As for the idea:
    No way is this going to work on WHT. The competitive edge is too strong here, and people will stoop to any level at all (advertising in competitors threads, trashing hosts without any experience, egging on flaming of competitors). The audience here is just not (generally) mature enough to handle this kind of a forum.

    I think that if someone started pointing fingers at the wrong host, iNET could get in trouble.

    We have that.

    Discussions on all aspects of web hosting including past experiences (both negative and positive), choosing a host, questions and answers, and other related subjects.
    There is no best host. There is only the host that's best for you.

    I'm talking about a real record where you can come and find bad hosts and avoid them. The records will be build base on what has happened with people being serviced. A host knowing that he will be reported on that list will be prompt to give support and to refunds. The point is that things will go exactly as in forum. One clients would complain about a host. We will try to verify if it is true and what the host has done. Base on that the community may vote either to classify whether a host is bad or not.
    Once again thanks let's keep reflecting on this
