New Hosting Provider for –

As you may have noticed, I had some hosting issues last week. I have used Domain.Com as my domain name registrar for about a year, but used a free hosting site called Hostzilla – until last week.

Hosting Fine Print

Last week, they suspended my account without warning for exceeding bandwidth. I had uploaded some Linux disk images and was sharing them with some friends.  I checked my account and I had “Unlimited Bandwidth”. Or so I thought, I now know the Acceptable Use Policy has a statement about exceeding bandwidth:

… Services are intended for normal use only, and any activity that results in excessive usage that is inconsistent with normal usage patterns is strictly prohibited. HostZilla reserves the right to suspend, discontinue or delete the accounts of Users whose use of disk space, bandwidth or other resources results in or presents the risk of degradation of service to other customers, regardless of the amount of disk space, bandwidth or other resources included in the User’s plan.

I confirmed with tech support and customer service, there was not a set limit and there was no warning. Just like that, my account was suspended and I was given a small opportunity to recover my data.

I’m sorry for going cheep – now I’m back on the best hosting I’ve ever used – Domain.Com

Moral of the story?

– don’t expect service you don’t pay for.

  1. Free type of hosting gives enough virtual space if
    you want to run personal sites, such as portfolios or blogs, so why
    should you pay money for some other server in case if you are not going to use half
    of its features. Majority of the third party resellers offer low
    charges while the web hosting companies might demand quite higher rates.

    If yes, then are you sure that the company is offering reliable
    services and is not drowning your brand or business.


  2. Sweet blog! I found it while searching on Yahoo News.
    Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News?
    I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Appreciate it


  3. Social Networking Sites: Social networking sites are
    great place to build your network of friends. Myth 14) “Trading link with any website will help my website to rank higher in search engine”.

    Configure Plugins to enable authentication capability on the web site.
