    Host Reviews Needed

    I need a good host and have been looking at the following hosts and was wondering if anyone had any experience good or bad with them?

    www.ionhosting.com
    www.9cy.net
    www.gisol.com/hosting/
    www.colossalhost.com/

    and if you have another host with my requirements post that!
    I need:
    • Over 100mb space
    • I need 30+ gb transfer a month and if possible a host that "turns the site off" when you go over transfer limit instead of chargeing beyond that
    • Good uptime and speed.
    • PHP and mySQL if possible

    The only one I've had experience with is 9cy. and they're horrible. Very unprofessional, too.

    A quick search of the forums, or Google, for that matter, should knock gisol right off your list.

    I knew Gisol.com a few years back when they were actually a reseller. Not sure if they have they are still reselling or not.


    You can look at www.spry.com and the root server. That would meet your requirements. If you go over, they'll contact you as you approach your limit and let you know your options (shutoff, or pay for more)

    This is what I know about 9cy.com It started as a free hosting provider offering 150MB of space and 1 terabyte of transfer. Needless to say Paul saw that there was no way he could cover the expenses with a single pop-up ad, so he sold out to 0catch. This was 9cy.com. after that he started 9cy.net offering paid hosting. If you go to the forums ar www.freewebspace.net , you will find tons of info about the compan. It is popular there, but I am not sure whether it isn't infamous...

    Carboran-yes, I visit the FW.net forums quite a bit (Im Matt8 there also) so I know alot about 9cy's old and new free host but not much about their paid.

    I have knocked off Gisol off my list after doing one search.

    I like Spry.com however I do not like their heavy prices. They may offer better services, but I can't pay that.

    Please be careful... paying $7 for 45gb transfer isnt smart.

    Try a search on Pay Per Click search engines, you'll find a bunch of hosting sites.

    http://www.snooply.com
    http://www.thesearchingstar.com

    Try a search on those for "web hosting", you should get a bunch of sites.
