Thread: Gridlocked?

  1. #1

    Gridlocked?

    OK, have a question on another host to see if anyone has any experience with them - gridlocked.

    Is there anyone out there hosting with them?

    I know they have a few posts on here and they have been replying to my emails pretty quick but I want to hear from you hosting gurus. I have been bit once and outgrew another in the last few months so I am being especially careful this time.

    Thanks in advance.

    The three most important words here are:
    "Data Transfer: Unlimited"

    The rep that has emailed me says they have:
    "10TB is for each server" and "We keep each server with a load balance, so the server does not run slower when too many sites. Usually, depending on sites, 20-50 a server"(number of sites/server).

    I have learned to stay away from unlimited but it sounds legit.

    10TB of storage space per server and 20-50 accounts per server? With the price of hard disk drives and enclosures, I'd have to say that it would take awhile to pay for the hardware.

    A 10TB array of IDE drives would cost about $20,000. I'm guesstimating.

    50 accounts x $65 = $3250.

    If they had no other costs, they could pay each server off by having 50 customers on each for a little over 6 months.

    Of course, maybe an AUD is a lot more than an american dollar.

    Why would you name a web hosting company gridlock? Honesty? lol. Anyways us WHTers dont like the word unlimited.

    Only thing I ask, there are thousands of we hosts out there, hundreds on this board. Go find one that doesn't promise to offer something they cant possibly acheive.

    Ah. So it's only "unlimited" bandwidth, not unlimited disk space?

    I could be wrong, but it looks like they're hosted on rackshack. Does rackshack have a 10TB plan? Is that their "unmetered" plan? For only $349/month, 50 x $65 accounts would be feasible.

    I watched the flash intro and one of the voices sounds a lot like majel barrett roddenberry.
