    I did a search on Google recently and found MidPhase. Their plans are expensive and they charge for addons and services that the majority of hosting providers will provide for free or at a fraction of the cost.

    I have heard the name midphase before but not the other company. So i think other company is out of picture for suggestion. Try looking more up on google .

    Thumbs up to midphase. Plenty of stuff ready to install. Go with prophase plan if you want unlimited addons, as long as the price is right for you. Don't put too much stock in "Unmetered bandwidth", most don't qualify.

    Midphase is good, you get unmetered bandwitch if you don't violate the TOS. They are not cheap!!!

    I am using Midphase and lets just say its not worth it. You only get 2 mysql with the $12/month plan. If you want addition database you have to pay $30/year or $10 per year or something crazy like that. Iím kinda stuck with them because Iím over my 30 day trail. Sure they have good ratings but how many of those ratings are real. Iím not a happy customer if I were you I would look elsewhere.

    Their spam policy is : 3 or more addresses in 1 email sent out = spam.

    As a current customer I would not consider buying from them again.


    The unmetered is only if you're site doesn't have too many graphics and there's a bunch of other stuff.

    Trust me Midphase is too expensive for what it offers.

    Angry NO to midpahse, NO NO NO

    Just got screwed by them. I had a site with them for 1 yr.Great Initial low cost turns to high costs to add on, email is horrible, and customer service is non-existent. And auto renewal is a fraud. Still trying to get my money - I cancelled a few days later than their policy says. I filed Better business Bureau complaint and credit card dispute. Read the 16 pages of fine print on their terms and conditions. Their customer service is the WORST. Watch out for this guy named "MARK". Seems like one guy in billing is an ahole. STAY away from these guys, they rip you off. They make no allowance for unused time/space. I didn't use the site for 2 months before renewal and they still are fighting to charge me the full years cost. Here's some of their email reply's:

    "Understand it is not our business to take advantage of you, nor is it
    our intentions. We do, however, have a business need to collect what
    is rightfully ours and we base these decisions entirely on your
    account history and compliance with our Terms of Service policy."

    Dan Ushman
    Billing Manager
    AND....

    Since you have disputed the charge with your credit card company we
    have no choice in this matter.

    Once we receive the charge back notice we will supply all the details
    to your credit card company.
    You will also be sent to collections and will be reflected on your credit.

    Thank you,

    Mark
