Web Hosting Requests – The final

I’d like to finish off saying that you pay for what you get as well. Some people expect 50GB of space, and 2TB of bandwidth for $8 a year, well, I hate to break it to you, but that is just not going to happen in this day and age. Good servers cost money, and if a company is allocating out that much space/bandwidth, you are safe to say they are overselling.

Do you need upgradable options? More Hard Drives, more bandwidth, additional IP addresses, 24/7 staff on the Data Center location, etc Those are just a few things to think about if you want to stick long term with a company.

Web Hosting Requests – #1, The Basics

I see a lot of new threads for people wanting to buy, or that are looking for new service that really lack pertant information for anyone
to actually refer them anywhere.

This is just a list of things to think about when looking for web hosting, Reseller, and Dedicated services.

Please note that unlimited hosting has been discussed many, MANY times and it’s impossible to offer such packages, so please, when giving specifics on space/bandwidth, give numbers, not just asking for unlimited, it won’t happen.
