A lot of sites have been down. My custom nameservers have stopped working. My host is pretty much crap. I’ve found a new host, and as soon as I can get my domain pushed to me, I’ll be finished with ParadeHosting forever. Don’t bother trying to visit their site as it have been blacklisted due to malware…
The whole experience has been a nightmare, darkened by a rude condescending host and asshole forum mods (not all of them but the majority).
For now I just have to suffer a bit longer. I changed all my nameservers to PH and now some sites are going back up. The directory is still down for the count.
I see when I made a forum post about getting 500 Errors everyone read but no one replied. Now so many people are getting 500 errors the mods have to close duplicate threads. I feel like some of the clients are airheads. If we all stood together on issues maybe the owner would actually fix them in a timely manner. But people are just now realizing their site has malicious script, their FTP won’t upload files, they have 500 errors, or their NS aren’t working. It’s been like that for DAYS and you’re just noticing?? Things I’ve been saying all along but my threads are just closed of no reply and pushed back until I get annoyed and delete them. What’s worse are a lot of these people are Master resellers or resellers which means they probably have paying clients. People like that with their phony hosting was what was making finding a REAL host hard. I don’t want to deal with anyone who cannot access the server physically when they need to.
The host I am looking into is CubeHosting. I was looking at HoldFire but they have way too many negative reviews for my taste. I didn’t find many reviews about Cube but the ones I did find were positive. Their Budget plan is 1.5GB space and 15GB transfers for 2/mnth. I’ll probably upgrade to the larger plan 5GB 3.95/mnth plan later, but I have so many domain renewals coming up that I want to pocket my cash for now.
I also want to give shout outs to the WebHostingTalk Forums. If you ever need a host check there. You can get special deals and reviews on the host as well from other forum members.
