I was planning to move to hostpacket.com a few months ago when aletia choked for a bit, but then hostpacket choked too. But I haven't heard anything bad about hostpacket recently, maybe tey got their act together, ala Aletia?
For the moment, I would avoid Hostpacket (or HostRacket as I've heard
it called). As an ex-customer who is STILL waiting for a refund (HINT HINT) I check their forums regularly and they are
still having problems. Maybe they'll get their act together eventually...Kevin seemed like a decent person.
I was a customer with them and I am still waiting for my refund. Kevin "seemed" like a nice person, but in my opinion that was just to draw customers in.
I began to think that he was really a kid. One day my site was down for 3 hours (first 3 days of signup), I contact him and ask what was going on.
"Sorry, was sleeping. server is back up now :-)"
I'm like , that's the response I get. It's a time and a place for smilies, that was neither one of them. And that's the best explainaion I can get. I could've told myself the server was down, that's not too much to assume when you get "Cannot Find Server" for 3 hours. My total downtime with them was 100+ hours, I wasn't even with them a month
SuzieQ, try Dynamitehost.com. I've been sending PMs back and forth with the guy there. Their plans are great, they fit right into my budget and have almost all the feature I need. I'm going to pass on Dynamite because they don't ahve the instant "download backup/ restore backup" feature.
I've already made a post at the request forum, nothing is appealing to me. I'll probably go with Activa. But I'm still a bit weary since nobody seems to have any previous experience with them.
We are working hard at the moment, making sure everything is perfect, to put HostPackets.com online, we have also registered HostPacket.com. We aim to provide a great hosting service and would like to point out that we have NOTHING to do with HostPacket.net.
