    7 Month review for CirtexHosting

    So, here it goes.

    Little background info.
    -It was about june of last year and my 1 year of hosting with Dreamhost was about to expire (was not willing to pay $120 for another year ). So I was searching for a new host.
    I did not need a host with terabytes of bandwidth or hundreds of gb's of diskspace, however I needed a host that oversells bit, so I would not have to pay a lot.

    So, after searching for a bit, i found CirtexHosting.
    I was looking at their Standard plan,
    10GB of space and 250GB of bandwidth, and after asking some pre-sales question, I was pretty much set to sign up with them.

    Before I signed up, I searched for coupon codes to lower the cost. Amazingly, I found a coupon code that lowered the cost for the first year....to around $25.

    Now, time to start the review.
    So, I been using them since Early june of 2007. It's been a bumpy ride, lots of good and the occasional bad. The first month was horrible so i asked them to move me to a new server, after that, things got better.

    Support is decent.
    When I first started, the Live Chat support was bad.
    They spoke horrible english, and usually they just end up telling me to submit a ticket. However it seems like they got better, because yesterday I asked them to .tar up some files and they did it quickly (although...english was a bit bad lol).

    Price
    $25 for the first year.

    Uptime.
    It was decent.
    But for $25, I'm not expecting 99.9% uptime.
    I'm happy that its in the 99% range lol

    Server Speed.
    Server load is usally under 1, but I remember once it got up to 20.
    No biggie tho.

    Network speed.
    This is why I loved it.
    Amazing speed, Pretty much maxes out my connection when I download something from the server.
    (was downloading my 2gigabyte backup file at 1megabyte per second)

    Overall?
    If you don't care about some downtime and the okay support, then CirtexHosting is one of the best.
    Especially, with their low price.

    Their service far exceeds the price I paid them and for that I'm grateful.

    ---------------
    Why I'm leaving?
    Just needed better uptime, and better support.
    Nothing big, I'll still host some stuff on the cirtex server, but nothing big.

    Sorry to hear that you have to leave.
    You presented it well, I have seen people complaining here like anything even though they are getting more than a dedicated server for a few $. Mostly people will only bother about what they get, not about what they are paying.

    Good luck with your new host. Have a long pleasant stay.

    It was a wise step to leave them. Quite a nice review.

    I hope they recover back soon and gain their lost pride in the market.
