I hate resellerzoom/hostzoom

I used to like them. Your experience may differ from mine, but the last couple of months i had with them were horrible. Several downtimes. My site was hacked, and they didn’t help me by checking their logs. Their abuse dept was a b**tch to talk to. You get what you pay for.:lol: Got a VPS account elsewhere and never looked back…

Let me make clear, this was just my personal experience. Like i said i hosted with them for like 2 years and never had those problems, so it could be just me. But then things started going downhill…

I guess i will never trust a shared hosting service. Get VPS or Dedicated if you can afford it. So worth it…

This disappointment with shared hosting may indeed be the explanation for the increased popularity of VPSes. It’s funny, because the vast majority of users don’t really need a VPS (and the cost it comes at), and shared hosting can be good, but there you have it when too many shared hosting providers end up aggravating their customers. :frowning:

Given that you’re happy with your VPS provider, maybe a review of them would be a good idea too. Too often people shared the bad news, but forget about the good news. :slight_smile:

I agree. And it seems they are pressed by the web hosting companies to shift to the VPS and as for me that is really dishonest

Yeah, as you said, its just your experience. Ive hosted all my sites on shared hosts, and never found reasons to switch to a dedicated one. Yes, there were technical problems, like down times (2 or 3 times a year), or slowing down (also very rare), but unless you have really massive website, or very much traffic, its not worth the extra bux.
