alternatives for HostingFest


I have been using hostingfest for a few months now, I had no issues and was very happy as they offered 1000mb space and 10GB b/w, also 3 sql 2005 dbs included and its space subject to the total space, so no restriction on db space.

Since yesterday it has started to bother me, the server is down! no reply from the support staff, which is unusual as they are very fast otherwise.

So i am thinking of a replacement now... cannot afford my site to be down for long

i have the basic fest plan, if someone can suggest me a good alternative??

Main requirement:

atleast 3 domains, 3 sql 2005 dbs (not lite) 2 framework
and about 10GB bandwidth

Thanks in advance

Have they given an ETA to correct? It may be up shortly.

Best wishes.

Hosting FEST is not fast on answering their clients, and they do major oversell, their servers has 1850 websites for each server, the speeds are awful. Donīt advise.

Its very difficult to find a good windows hosting provider.

Do you by any chance have a backup of all your files? If so, find a host that fits your needs with a good reputation and stick with them.
