I need your help guys...REAL BAD!!

Thursday, September 26, 2002 8:11 PM

Guys I need your help to get alexsplace.com up again...here's my problem

First my site got hacked....you all know what happened their.

Second right after that my ISP dumps me

Third I signed up at www.superwebhost.com which on the site says unlimited space and bandwidth. But if you want more than 500 mb you have to e-mail them telling them you need more...So i told them I need at least 1.5 to 2gigs and this is the response I got

We will not host you, we do not want another high usage coaster site on baord using 2 GB of space.

So this is where you guys come in...I need you to help me find an ISP that will give me Unlimited or at least 2 to 2.5 GB of space and unlimited bandwidth. The most I would like to pay is 30/month

I know i'm going to get TOSed here but Jeff please I am having alot of trouble and need HELP!!!!

Hell, if you know of such a deal I think there are more than a few people who would be interested. Especially me. You can't buy "unlimited" bandwidth and you're probably talking ~200 for a real outfit to host it. A month.

Might be better off investing in SDSL and serving yourself.

I can't believe I am going to say this, but you can try hostonce.com. Some people I know who also use them as a host have had encounters with slow servers or alot of downtime. I have been lucky and haven't had much trouble with them, except I can't get my perl or cgi working. But it only cost $5 a month for unlimited space and bandwidth and I use well over 2 G.B. of space and have never had any problems so I think its worth it.

Why in the world would they say they can give you unlimited bandwidth and then be punks and say no? That's not very good for business.

There is no such thing as unlimited bandwidth/storage.

Also, ISP stands for Internet Service Provider which is different from a web host. An ISP is what you use to connect to the internet.

I would suggest www.topclasshost.com or www.ipaska.com

You get what you pay for. There is no such thing as free bandwidth.

So if you're really looking for something free, I'm guessing that you wouldn't want to use someone like Crystaltech, the world's greatest Windows host.

If you're using that much disk space, you need to seriously evaluate what it is you're trying to serve and what your goals for the site are.

Whoa whoa... Don't get someone else to get screwed over by that non-host. You have more problems than just your CGI access. They offer ASP, and that didnt work either. Should I even mention your site crash? Anyways, just looking at host once's home page looks very unprofessional. Sorry, but you're host sucks. Don't go with host once. Go with anyone but host once. Geocities is more reliable, and it's free! (I know, it's no where near your needs, but it's true.)

You're not going to find it, man There are many who claim to provide that, but it's not true. Not by a longshot!

I also strongly agree with what Jeff said in his last paragraph.

That is a lot of content. I have ten or more client sites sitting dormant (backup) in a folder on this computer and all of the combined do not even hit 2 gig.

It's tough. Eventually everyone has to deal with quantity versus quality.

That's where I admire www.Joyrides.com . There not much there, but man is every picture a killer.

That's why I eventually got the T-1 with Sprint. Sure, I have to run my own servers, buy my own software, etc., but at least it's a fixed cost now. As long as my average utilization is below 50%, I've got room to grow. There was a point where I was paying nearly a grand for a dedicated server and bandwidth, so I had to find a better way.

Remember folks... visit the sponsors or join CoasterBuzz Club. Those are the reasons that you can hit my router in less than a dozen hops from most of the US. Good service isn't cheap.

Alex:

Try this:

http://www.featureprice.com/

They are excellent, and know that they back up their guarantee. By the way, 5 gigs for $19.95.

I'm lucky my parents weren't around because I went to your site the other day only to see naked women and your site turned into a porn site.
