    Thumbs up WebTHosting.com [6 months+], I am satisfied

    Just wanted to give a short review of WebTHosting, an offshore hosting company.I am with them more than 6 months.
    SO far the greatest hosting service I ever had. WebT Hosting is fairly affordable, with fast and reliable networks, and great support. Their uptime and server load is quite satisfactory.

    One most important and the best thing is their live support and sales service. also the response of their support ticket is really fast.

    I am happy with them...hopefully everyone is getting the good solution who are their clients.

    Thank you

    Thanks for the review, finally a positive one. Your site does seem to load kind of slowly for me though at the moment. Perhaps it's just me.

    Well... one of the reason to load slowly is the Theme i use and the external image links.It is happening from few days ago.
    I will also take a look on that..

    Holy crap that bugger loads slow. I sat there for at least 20 seconds on a FIoS connection trying to pull that thing up. Was about to call Verizon and be like "hey whats up with this"

    Posting the domain publicly instantly saw a http attack.

    94.183.221.66 and others at this moment. All IPs seem to come from IRAN.

    We do not allow warez. Also if you want to compare speeds you should do the test on any average sized page. I found one on the same server with some descent page size and not much images/javascripts etc.

    If any warez site is found it will be suspended immediately.

    I was checking that server. Some modules appear to have stopped working which is making the problem during attacks.

    That's funny, when I asked questions of your support staff pre-sales, they said you allowed warez.

    Glad you are happy with your new hosting company...

    Its seems what other are saying it loads a bit slowly I can not see the link so can not test.

    Best of luck with your new host.

    Any account containing warez files will be immediately terminated without a refund as soon as it comes to our notice.

    more reasons why WebTHosting isn't so great!
    they don't even know if warez is allowed or not.
    they confuse their customers >__>.
    in fact, i'm not even sure if warez IS indeed allowed or not on webthosting..

    and its sad that you guys didn't know about this warez website that was hosted on your server until 6 months later?
    whats up with that?

    6 months make a lot of difference. That time we had ecatel servers which changed. The company name was registered and everything was changed. I said warez IS not allowed, you can find sites hosted on Hostgator servers linking to warez like Rapidshare. Linking to rapidshare, megaupload is absolutely legal and it does not mean the warez files are hosted on our servers to make it clear. Just find any site on our servers with warez files and that account will be suspended. Linking is not hosting.

    Linking to rapidshare, megaupload, etc is not illegal. Rapidshare is responsible for such files and not we, and it is not called warez hosting. Linking to rapidshare files does not make warez hosting. Rapidshare hosts the files and so Rapidshare is a warez host to be clear. We will not allow such files/warez hosting on our servers. Hosting and linking are different terms.

    I just singed up at their site. I hope its as good as you say

    I am going to tell you why WebT Hosting is a pathetic hosting company:

    * They have horrible customer service and never give you a straight answer
    * They claim to have 99 uptime but that is only the servers for webthosting.com. They host their other sites on different servers and my site has been down constantly while webthosting.com has been fine
    * Most of my pages have a new 500 error that suddenly happened a few days ago and they refuse to do anything about it.
    * They changed my account details without giving me notice and I did nothing wrong.
    * They helped a little as possible when my site was hacked on their servers
    * I lost over $400 dollars in potential business because their server gave my members a 500 error when they wanted to register or donate.

    This host has been one of the worst I have ever experienced. At first they were fine but once I started asking questions they didn't respond as much and gave me horrible customer service.

    I thought for once I'll see a good review about webthosting here, or maybe I just haven't seen the others. I almost thought this thread would somehow help them uplift their reputation but again, as I see bentink's replies, it just makes things worst for them like here on a few threads..

    Any third party can also monitor the OP's site to see the "real" uptime. There has been several false uptime comments made by some people recently.
