    Exclamation Host Check: MYMarkdown.com

    I discovered this host through another webmaster. He is in the process of switching to it, and I am quite wary of this... Considering the costs are so outrageously inexpensive for what they give:

    14.95 a month, with 3GB of space, 30 gb of transfer.

    I am not misquoting them at all... this is what they sell.

    Is this too good to be true? Is it a "fly-by-night" operation to receive payments then vanish into nowhere?

    http://hosting.mymarkdown.com

    I think this is quite suspect... Read their TOS/AUP

    thanks guys for all your help,

    Theo

    Doesn't look too promising to me, but then again you could have guessed that at those prices. I think they're using 'fuzzy math.'

    Also, look at some of the 'comparisons' they're using. Look closely.

    I have been hosting with them for about a year. Major problem is downtime. Switching to another host.

    beware of MYMARKDOWN HOST

    THEY SUCK, IN LAST 5 WEEKS THEY HAVE BEEN DOWN MORE THAN 6 TIMES AND SOMETIMES FOR DAYS...WHEN YOU ASK FOR SUPPORT THEY TELL YOU TO GO TO WWW-GETSOMESUPPORT-COM WHERE YOU CAN LOOK AT SERVER DOWN ISSUES IN KNOWLEDGE BASE AND IN SERVER STATUS, ALTHOUGH THEY ONLY KEEP ABOUT 30 DAYS OF HISTORY AT A TIME. I HAVE USED THEM FOR 6 MONTHS AND IT'S CHEAP, BUT JUST NOT WORTH BIENG DOWN SO MUCH, I'M MOVING AND MOVING MY CLIENTS TOO (I WAS RESELLING) SO NOW I NEED TO FIND ANOTHER HOST AND FAST!

    No need to bump multiple threads for this - please open a new thread if you wish to discuss this particular host or finding a new one. Oh, and the CAPS is shouting
