    Early HawkHost Review

    So, I need a reliable hosting, but not overly expensive.
    I'm still a teenager so clothes and life takes priority over web hosting

    Anyways, theres not much to tel ya about HawkHost.
    I asked some PreSales question, the guy there answered them quickly and with 100% perfect english

    Been using them about 2 weeks now, no downtime and no slow loading time.

    The server load is 2.1, but it says 4 cpu's
    I'm guessing 2.1 is okay if it 4 cpu's?

    Network speed is okay, It doesn't max out my connection like CirtexHosting does.
    I'm on thier 12GB of storage/120GB bandwidth plan.
    I think they oversell a bit, but as you can tell by my signature, I love overselling!

    Don't know what else to say, overall, it's a quality host.

    To the best of my understanding, 1.0 = 1 CPU at full load. If you have 4 x CPU's, then the server load would be maxed out 4.0, so yeah, 2.1 is fine on a quad core.

    I'm glad your experience has been a good one thus far hopefully it continues to be a good one for a long time.

    The reason you may not be maxing out your connection with us could be a geographically reason. Cirtexhosting I believe has their servers in New Jersey and Illinois while our servers are in Texas. If it is dramatically slower I would advise you make a ticket and we can take a look.

    That's nowhere near expensive, especially for the resources included with their packages.

    I guess our prices may seem high compared to a host offering 1000TB of space all for $10/month.

    Funny though, this is the first time I've heard our prices being called expensive. Usually it's along the lines of your prices are too low how can you offer reliable service.
