    Exclamation I need experience/opinions on FrontDrive

    I've narrowed it down to FrontDrive (and Webmasters).

    Could anyone share their experiences or opinions? Any but not just limited to:

    Customer Service
    Tech Support
    Uptime
    Any Billing problems

    thanks

    Try doing a search of WHT and see if there are any comments previously posted about them on these forums.

    Good luck.

    I will have to ask the same question as gadgetgrl, any one besides frontdrive, have real comments on frontdrive.com.

    I did a search and nothing real turned up.
    Thanks

    Hmmm.

    I have photographic memory, and I SWEAR that's the same graphics, template etc that were used in availhosting.com - before it went out of business!

    Just to let you know, they post here quite frequently under the username FDrive.

    This explains the web page:
    http://webhostingtalk.com/showthread...436#post446436

    However, it doesn't explain the WHOIS information.

    Hmmm thanks for the pointer. Indeed, the WHOIS info is confusingly similar.

    Jeremy, the guy who ran availhosting.com, is my roommate. He was 17 at the time, so he couldn't get his own PO Box, etc. I did most of the front-end stuff for him, designed his webpage, etc. I've always been the designer, he's always been the computer science geek

    When he went under with Avail, I decided to rework some of the things that we had worked on together and do it myself this this time. And more importantly, do it right this time.

    Heh, nice detective work, though.. he's gunna get a kick out of this

    I had some great ping times with Availhosting, although Jeremy's army of Indian engineers were a bit slow resolving the few setup issues that I had.

    Tell Jeremy hello

    LOL... I guess he used Bobcares? I know they're a timesaver and all... but I wouldn't touch outsourced tech support with a 10 foot pole .. just too impersonal.

    I know his server was with DV2, so if you're near Atlanta that's probably why you got good ping times?

    I'll tell him Hi from TC when he gets in

    Yeah, I'm in Orlando and I do prefer East Coast based servers. Not sure who he used for support.

    Didn't you use to have an info page about the Front Drive group?

    oh, LOL. Jeremy just got in, you're talking about "Christy Front Drive" -- some obscure band that he's in to. He was the one who came up with "Front Drive", I had no idea it was a reference to some indie band. I feel so unprofessional now

    The whole story? Not even close! Inside Edition has the dirt on Front Drive... starring Jay M. and Jeremy T.... directed by timechange. Coming to NBC this fall.


    Paulina who?

    By the way -- I told him Hi for you and he says "kiss my US" while laughing? Whatever that means?
