Thread: Is NoMonthly.com reliable?

Is NoMonthlyFees.com good and reliable?
Anyone here has any experience with them? Are their tech support good and reliable?
Would you recommend it?

I just want to make a few points.
They stole the 99.9% up time button on their site from www.olm.com
Their layout looks just like: http://www.ispcheck.com
How can someone host your web site with 200 MB for only $180 and no other fees, ever?
Lines, support, servers and much more cost money. It is not just a one time fee cost, but a monthly cost. They don't even offer SSL, so how can you sell something online without a secure server?

I have never used them, but I would suggest you be cautious about any company who is giving away the kitchen sink. I am not saying it is a scam, but a company like that is more likely to go out of business than most others.

Why do you say they will go out of business? Could you elaborate on that?
02-05-2000, 07:06 AM #5Guest Guest
It's a one off fee you pay, so who pays the electric, bandwidth, storage, maintainance, admin, tech support bills for the next 100 years or whatever. However if they get a decent amount of customers each month then they should be able to support you for some time to come.

I have used them and as of today 12/12/99 I would say they are THE worst host I've ever had...Tech support is Rude and they have lied to me many times...If it looks to good to be true ..it is!!

Hi guest, could you tell me more about your experience by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org please?

I've been using nomonthlyfees.com for a few months and I could tell you quite a bit about them. The deal seemed too good to be true for me as well but I figured I'd give it a shot. First off, they offer "Unlimited bandwidth" but if you check the policy it's really only 5GB per moth. Who's going to fill up 200MB of space and NOT use 5GB per month?? At the moment they seem to have outgrown themselves and are having trouble answering questions.

Well nomonthlyfees finally turned my site back on after 8 days, 10 minutes after I signed up with another web host (ARGH!!!). They final gave me the straightforward response I needed and took some action. If it hadn't taken 8 days to get this I would amost complement them for it.

I am the one that said they are THE worst host I've ever had.
I picked Cedant Hosting solutions we had one problem that they fixed(I of course panicd) but things have been fine since.
I have filed a complaint with the BBB And would say to you get out now..they are not a good host at all and will only hurt your site in the end.
There needs to be a way to regulate these hosts. This has been the most frustruating thing I have ever been through.
02-05-2000, 07:08 AM #12Guest Guest
Well there's you're problem. How do you regulate the internet? I'm afraid people have been asking that for years and there's still no solution.
02-05-2000, 07:08 AM #13Guest Guest
But perhaps we can regulate hosting companies. Then again....
How can we be expected to rely on the recommendations of Web Host Guild and VeriHost when you see some of the hosts they accept.

I have been a reseller with NoMonthly for 6 months now. It is true there is virtually no Tech Support, i.e., it is VERY slow, but I''ve not had any major problems. In a pinch, you can call them.
I traced their registration back to Alabanza, and discovered that one can set up a server with Alabanza with the same Control Panel, etc. and set up your own web host business. That''s why Cedant, NoMonthly and a few others all look alike and have the same control panels. They are themselves leasing servers from bigger guys.
02-05-2000, 07:08 AM #15Guest Guest
Yes, nowadays alot of people are leasing server from Alabanza, their features are the same, so are the prices. Although I am going to lease a few servers from alabanza, I'll make sure I'll always offer something which most of the companies have not offer.
Take care and cya around!
02-05-2000, 07:09 AM #16Guest Guest
If you read the Alabanza literature carefully, you''ll see that the most expensive aspect of web hosting service is providing Tech Support. Alabanza itself offers a package deal to their own clients whereby they provide the end user with Tech Support, but you the client must then charge at least $15/month to make even a minimum profit.
What people don't realize is that to get the prices under $10/month, something has to give, and it is almost always Tech Support.

I now have to give NoMonthly another star on their chart. They are one of the few who can host long domain names cheaply, and where you can get your own virtual name server for no additional charge. I am moving all of my client accounts to NoMonthly.
02-05-2000, 07:09 AM #18Guest Guest
Was the last guest someone from NoMonthly? What do you mean by long domain names? The new 64 letter names? All hosts will host that. Also, do you really need a long domain name?
