    MDD hosting review

    On 31st July I started looking for a new host, stumbled across this forum, and stumbled across MDD hosting. After interrogating Michael about his backing up policies, which sound really solid, I tackled him about the likelihood of his small customer oriented business ballooning into a not so personal enterprise in the near future. He said all the right things.

    Unlike many businesses, he was prepared to front up to his claims too, and he offered me 3 months free hosting IF I found a bad review. Unlike others who apparently spent months looking for bad press - and failed - I read so much good about him and his service that I just rolled over and signed up fairly quickly.

    He took charge of transferring 4 sites across and installing them. It wasnt too straightforward due to problems my end, but he kept giving out instructions for me to either do certain things myself, or to relay to my last hosts to make sure the accounts were properly backed up. Over 30 emails later I now have a custom hosting package with loads more capacity and bandwidth and convenience than before, and my sites are now set up "golden" and are being served at litespeed as we speak.

    Either he is a brilliant con man on 50 cups of coffee a day, or Michael genuinely is a work hungry web host who gets a buzz out of being helpful. I think the latter, so far, so very good.

    I know, report back in a year. Will do!

    Ah, so it's <insert brand> energy drinks eh?

    Good to see another good review. These forums seem constantly dogged with negative views of certain companies, which doesn't surprise me.
