    Sounds pretty good. But you don't find out about that $10 per FTP user charge 'till after you sign up.

    Too bad.

    You should be upfront about what you are really charging.

    We are upfront about everything.
    We list everything you get on the site.

    I will edit the post accordingly, but what you see is what you get. Nothing more, nothing less

    Yes, you do list them. You just do not say what you have to pay for them. I looked for the info on the charge for FTP accounts and could not find it.

    Thinking I must have missed the info on the FTP charges, I tried the control panel demo. (which is 6 clicks and one password into the site. if you know exactly where your going).

    This is what your demo says about FTP users.

    "Sorry, that function is unavailable to the test account."

    "All these functions and more are available to customers of Cyber World, Inc."

    No mention of the $10 per user charge.

    Don't get me wrong. I think you have a pretty nifty site. It is quick. Pretty good Control Panel. Some features I have not seen in other panels.

    But, $10 per head is a lot of money. Especially, when your competition will do it for free with a phone call.

    Why not offer 10 users free? That should do most people. Then let them upgrade for more?

    Ok, I get where you are going. We should make the changes to our site that state that you only get 1 FTP user and additional users come at an extra fee.

    In our experience, and we have been around since 1996 and host thousands of domains, we have never had a demand for stuff like extra ftp users on our windows accounts. If you notice, we do not charge for them with our Linux Accounts. Most of our customer base just run their business sites, and only need one FTP to do their updates. We have in the past thought about offering it for free, and did for a month, and people abused it and used it for FTP sites for huge downloads and so on. Vven when we limited the amount of users they could add they still did that. We just find that we keep our servers running better this way, and would consider it if we found a way to limit FTP bandwidth on IIS 5.

    But thanks for the suggestion, and for the compliments on our Control Panel. We had to disable some of the features, not to hide prices, but to stop people from abusing the account on the control panel. With our next release we plan to put a demo on a staging server that does not matter and allow people to do what they want with is and get a 100% demo. We wills creen them of course so that they do not upload obscene stuff to our server.

    Ok, now you understand and so do I.

    Like I said, you have a well designed panel that makes users feel comfortable. Your speed test was pretty good. (I got 1.15MBPS download from a satellite). Your feature set ie. CGI, ASP.NET, 3rd Party ASP components, PHP, dedicated IP.. nice positioning. I have not seen this mix of development tools. You are right. It is a good offer. Will PM you about the FTP.

    Heck, I signed up.

    He probably has Satelite Internet Access, and when downloading a file from our servers got 1.15MBPs over the satelite internet connection.
