    StartLogic ( STAY AWAY!!! )

    I'm sure many of you know of StartLogic and what kind of company they are... well I had to learn the hard way. I have been a costumer of there's for about 2 weeks now and lets just say those 2 weeks have been a nightmare... my site was shut down 3 times during that time and I had to stay on the phone for like 3-4 hours each time to get in touch with there damn costumer service. Talk about OVERSELL... Here is the mail header " Cosuming High Bandwidth " they so say offer you 1500GB and 15000GB bandwith? Yeah right... more like 10GB and no more then 100GB bandwith... Each time I tell them that I'm no where near the bandwith they offer and say that I have some illegal stuff on the server... what I have on the server is breakbeats which is mixes by dj's who do those mixes in like there hours and that music is no where near copyright and its shared all over the net for free... Anyways the other thing they said that I'm not allowed to post that data on my site for other " visitors " then how the hell I'm I suppose to use the so called 15000GB of bandwith they give you? Upload stuff and download them yourself?


    STAY AWAY...

    Hi
    I have heard about Hostgator and also their service. I think they are massive overseller.
    If they will give you 1500GB and 15000GB bandwith, you can't use their offer, that means you will not have the 1500GB and 15000GB bandwith for your use.

    They will not allow this fecility . Many people sign up with them , looking for high bandwidth and space,like you. Same way all of them trying to acess this fecility , finally the server going to down So they will publish a statement "Cosuming High Bandwidth " .This is same as the cases of all overseller.

    I'm currently trying to "escape" from StartLogic too. I got through to support relatively unscathed, only for the tech guy to say to me "I don't know what else to tell you", in regards to a minor password issue.

    Needless to say I'm extra cautious about choosing my new host provider.

    Help! I'm web stupid.

    I read on Joomla's forum that StartLogic charges $12.95 to autoinstall Joomla for their clients. Seriously??

    The issue is likely the CPU load, not the bandwidth. It is kind of stupid of them to talk about b/w when they offer such enormous amounts! The type of files you mention will probably cause high CPU load, which no host will accept on a cheap shared account.

    If you are seriously wanting to use that much space then you should probably consider a Dedicated server or a large VPS.

    If you really want shared hosting, check out HostGator or DreamHost. They do have CPU limits, but they should let you use the space you need as long as it is legit (legal) content.

    HostGator does have a inode limit which will limit the total of files you are allowed to publish. With loose wallpaper files this limit will be reached fairly quickly. (did some research and found that users which used 2gb of diskspace either came close to 50.000 inodes or to go beyond it quite far). note that is is very much depending on what you publish, a lot of small files will add faster as 1 large file.

    Dreamhost does have some other rules on the content, i didnt see any reference to inodes in their TOS though, but they are talking more about content which should be for hosting not for backup or archiving.

    In either case, always contact the HOST and ask them about your needs and if you can or can not use the full capacity, with detailed information about what you are going to do.

    The best way to go is a good VPS or Dedicated server if you need that much of resources. But not everyone can afford that.
