    DowntownHost, SharkSpace, StableHost

    Hey WHT.

    Thanks to many of you, I have erased some hosts that thought were good but your feedback proved me wrong (JustHost etc.)

    I have narrowed it down to DowntownHost SharkSpace and StableHost.

    Here's how they compare (Well they almost have all the same features so I'll jus compare space and bw

    DowntownHost SILVER:
    14 GB / 300 GB
    With 25% off coupon: 5.27777777777$/month

    StableHost PLUS:
    15 GB / 300 GB
    With 50% off coupon AND Free domain :3.64$/month

    SharkSpace HAMMERHEAD:
    20 GB / 500 GB
    With 50% off coupon: 3.975$/month

    DowntownHost has a 99% off coupon.. but I dont understand and sounds a little bit sketchy. Would be like 12 cents per month.

    So in terms of reliability, and SPEED, speed is important to me, which do you suggest.
    Downtownhost: Chicago
    Stablehost: Dallas
    Sharkspace North Carolina and Kansas.

    Im in Montreal, Canada, so eastern Canada. Which host would be best for me?

    Chicago is the closest from my area. But yeah. I'd like to know best.

    I dont know for downtownhost, but stablehost only has a server in dallas. sharkspace has north carolina and kansas.

    I've seen numerous good reviews / comments for both SharkSpace / DownTownHost - I've never really come across StableHost though (doesn't mean much).

    The DTH coupon is a common theme for companies - it's merely a promotion to help branding / attract new clients / hopes of renewal. Nothing shady w/ that particular coupon (reputable company).

    Hi!

    I would like to clarify something, the coupon code refugee is valid for the first month, on monthly billing cycles and for shared packages only.

    DowntownHost, even though they have a tiny bit less of space or bandwidth, they ARE in chicago and a lot closer + all the good rep on WHT.

    Others have good rep too. I have heard a FEW comments that sharkspace oversells their bigger packages a bit but im not sure.

    Anybody knows if there is a 50% off coupon for DowntownHost ? Because that would make the deal maker here. I'm probabby buying the longest term there is.

    I've been recommending my a few of my freelancers and coders to Downtownhost for well over a year now and they've inturn recommended a few of their clients to DTH for hosting plans.

    All I've heard back are good reports, so it's all good.

    It means when your plan needs renewed on that date (almost 3 years from now)....that will be the amount needed to be paid.

    hmmm...of course you got discount.

    the renewal cost in 3 years time is for the following period of years....i.e from 2012-2015....or whatever payment period you took.

    you pay in advance mate.

    It looks like you are paying tri-yearly for service, not monthly.

    yeah but its 25% off which is not for the monthly plan according to all the coupons codes..

    only the 99% applies to monthly only no?

    the amount is correct and the discount is applied, 5.27 x 36 = 187, otheriwise it would be 6.95 x 36 = 250

    downtownhost always has been good. I think sharkspace is pretty reliable as well.

    Judging from their past reviews, you made a wise choice. Congratulations!

    I hope you'll come back and post a 3 or 6 month review?
    What's your budget?

    Seriously, what's your budget?

    I hosted my two websites with Downtownhost. They may be overselling a bit, but when I was with them, their service was excellent. Their representative, Jedito, is active on WHT, their support may do more than they should. My advice: choose Downtownhost.

    yeah Mike, something like billing.downtownhost.com was what i was looking for, and it took me a while to find the support page where I can submit a ticket haha.

    Thanks !

    I still have a little billing issue.. I hope my credit card company will fix this..

    I've been with DTH for a couple of years. Very happy with their support. There were some quirky php upgrade issues a while back, not sure what happened, but they took care of it quickly. They have also been patient and friendly when I asked for support on issues that turned out not to be on their end.

    I'm going through hell right now with another host (that I didn't choose). Site down, 24 hour response time, an answer that is nonsense, and the ticket is closed. It makes you really appreciate good support and realize how little it is worth just to save a couple bucks a month when you get lousy support.
