    Question Longest Length With a Host?

    Hi

    What is the longest length you've been with a host, which host and (if possible) a site that has been with the same account/host?

    Please post in the uniformed format:
    Length - Host - Your Site (if any).
    Short (one line) review/opinion.

    Once they were bought by Data393, things went downhill, and I left.

    You should add 5 and 7 years to the poll. I have clients that has been with my hosting company since 1999.

    Very good.

    BTW, this poll should have "I'm not sure" and "Mixture" as I've been with 3 hosts to date. One is VERY long so far.

    was w/hostrocket for 6 and a half years...left for numerous reasons, declining performance and what i was paying vs what i was getting being the two main things.

    to give you an idea of how dated the plan we were on was - the same plan throughout the stint, 750mb disk space and 10gb/mo bandwidth for 13 or 14.95/month.

    We were with Network Redux for about 2 years. The only reason we left was because we out grew their reseller accounts and decided it would be better for us to colocate our own equipment.

    Almost two years with Lunarpages and planning to continue. Although they don't have too many good reviews here I have no complaints whatsoever ... maybe my site doesn't require too much, lol!

    Mine is about 7 months. That was when I was with resellerzoom until it started going down hill and fast. I hope my current host stays around what it is at now so far almost 3 months down and still happy. If it does then I see myself staying with them for quite some time.

    Roughly 8 years with Darkscape, Inc. mainly because the owner is a personal friend of mine.

    8 years, wow! I guess the OP should reconsider the poll's options ...

    Interesting results so far. Looks like people tend stick to their hosting accounts for quite a while. Customer lifetime value must be on the high side.

    Longest time with a host was six months, but I've only been playing around for about a year now.

    Hopefully, will be with my current provider for a lot, lot longer.

    I think it's just a big pain to move from host to host every other month If my site's up with no probs, I don't see any reason to move.

    Longest i've been was with Servint, had a VPS there for over a year. Great service there

    2-3 months. I just can't seem to find a good fit.

    Maybe I should take my own advice and go with media layer, I know they're good I just don't like shared hosting.
