    Question Choose Between ReadyHosting, GearHost, and HalfPriceHosting?

    Dear All,

    After days of researching and reading comments in this forum, I came out with the following Windows hosting, can people who had experiences with these hostings share your thoughts about them?


    1) ReadyHosting.com
    2) GearHost.com
    3) HalfPriceHosting.com


    I really need to make decision soon!!! I am looking for reliable service and good tech support.

    thanks in advance.

    I would tend to widen your search

    However, out of the ones listed, I would recommend HostingMatters.com.

    Hi.

    My vote for tokios for excellent support
    Oh gosh.. Thanks! We appreciate that.

    However, out of the ones listed, I would recommend HostingMatters.com.
    I know that HostingMatter.com has quite a good reputation, but I didn't know they offered Windows hosting??

    I didn't say they did, I was simply naming the best host from the list provided.

    My vote would go for HostingMatters. Unfortunately, they do not offer "Windows" hosting----only Linux based.

    edit---Nevermind, I somehow skipped one of the posts here. Sorry for the re-run.

    Down to Gearhost VS HalfpriceHosting

    I am now comparing between Gearhost and HalfpriceHosting, and comments???

    I am looking a hosting with real good tech support like forum and extensive knowledgebase- GearHost says they are developing a new support area, any better than HalfpriceHosting's knowledgebase and support features?? Anyone any experience? I am hoping to go with GearHost, but i really not impressed by the support features/services in the site!

    Your comments are greatly appreciated!

    So if Hosting Matters dont provide Windows Host
    and still getting votes
    then the vote goes to LINUX

    BTW Sky777 why dont you ommit Hosting Matters from the list?

    P.S.
    i am waiting for Lindows HOST

    A simple test would be to test out the support responsiveness of both the hosts in question. That should be a rough indication of how well they respond to future support tickets. Shoot them an e-mail with your questions and see how they respond.

    P.S. i am waiting for Lindows HOST
    What's a Lindows host? Wait, let me guess.... Its a server Running Linux Redhat 7.x with Windows 2000 installed under a VMware Virtual Machine :-)

    I also think so
    my current host (linux) stays online on MSN
    thats what i call 24/7 Support

    i even get mail replies in 7 minutes

    this is the way you can judge these two hosts.

    Question Between GearHost and HalfPriceHosting

    I guess GearHost doesn't offer 24/7 phone support, but HalfPriceHosting does!!! And half.. has great support features that can be real helpful to me if I signup with them..!!!

    Any last comments dear friends?

    No its a host based on new OS Lindows(Still in beta).
    i think its an attempt to provide Linux to Window Users in a new name
    but who knows what will happen next..........

    I really didn't see the " 24 Hour Support Center" in GearHost's website??? That's only a toll-free phone support? or other means?

    Called toll-free, but had to leave a message! But that's the sales dept though, does the tech support does the same thing too, leave a msg, and wait for them to return calls?

    Any other "instant" ways to contact the tech support of Gearhost? Like MSN Messenger? ICQ?......???

    When is the knowledgebase and support site be fully developed?

    Thanks...

    Never, never go with readyhosting.

    I had about 20 websites with them. They were once down for 2 weeks and also all of the MSSQL server datas went to hell.

    Exclamation No response from GEARHOST! :(

    Tried to contact the Sales and tech support by 1800, forced to leave message but no response until now! Sigh......!!! What if I host my site with them and have urgent technical problem??? Have to wait and wait....!

    Any opinions? Any experience? Any more Windows2000 hostings you can recommend! Looking for good tech support, researched for quite sometime, didn't find many though!

    Thanks,

    Sky ... I'm sorry you haven't reached our departments. I checked with the Sales entries and none have been made by you via by phone, voice mail or email but you might of been using a different email address. Sales requests are usually handled on the weekend but it's not demanded (those guys gotta get some rest ) but Support is always available. If you have a question please post, I'm sure other GearHost customers on this board can show very positive experiences with our support during the week and weekends. Please let me know if you have a specific question though, I can help.

    Well i think Sky just wanted to check your Support Response (Which as he says was not so good).

    and he doesnt actualy have any questions about your service.

    Best of luck with your services.

    Ryank,

    I am pretty sure I had to leave messages in the voicemail either for your sales dept (press 2) or tech support (press 1) when I called 1888-535-5443 the past 2 days! Yes, just wanted to see your response time, didn't want to get myself into WAITING AND WAITING for support help after I signup with GearHost!


    In fact, I just called again before finishing this posting, and always get the standard female message "currently assiting someone, .....sales rep occupied with other customers with someone else, please leave your sales request......", same thing goes to the tech support! In fact, I emailed the sales team, no response either. I didn't make these up to make GearHost looks bad, but I just wanted to see what kind of quality of support I will get from you if I sign up! And I guess no one likes WAITING...!

    Thanks,
    SKY
