    Who's behind the hosting?

    I'm looking for hosting again, I think it would be useful to know who's behind the hosting companies in Malaysia. At least it gives you a bit of confidence when you know who're the guys mucking around with your web server.

    I'm sure some hosts already know that appearing helpful and knowledgeble in a forum like this is a good way to advertise.

    To start the ball rolling, I'll list down the few names I know. All you hosters out there, please add to it.

    Antonwong - malaysiahoster.com
    aodat2 - welltodocentury.com
    filuren hive.com.my
    fivio - fivio.com
    hstan - malaysiahosting2u.com
    michaelfoo - kkhost.net
    mizan - mercumaya.net
    sampride - web-hosting.net.my/serverfreak.com
    starsearcher - exabytes.com

    limcs: Quite a few new hosts in the list.

    I forgot to add a well-known host. We had a tiff sometime back.
    filuren hive.com.my

    I'd try to put them all in the first post for easy reference.

    Hi sauerkraut,
    I'm afraid my name is michaelfoo

    By the way, I remember there was a member here, representing articulate-x who was quite active in the past?

    Thanks.

    michaelfoo: ops! will correct it. Maybe it's because I used to be a fan of micheal yeoh

    fivio: Encik Adi? Cant find any user with that name in this forum.

    My purpose is not to list down every forumer who do hosting; doesnt serve much purpose if they hardly make any posts and "promote" themselves.

    Actually there are quite a large percentage of active members here are web host. I think this is especially great since the web hosts involved in the webmaster community, they would understand more of their clients' need.

    I think a good web host would be an experienced webmaster too.

    So, a large percentage of active members are web host. Strange that none of them are willing to come forward and introduce themselves.

    To all the web hosts out there! Have you no confidence in your hosting service? How do you expects others to have confidence in you then?

    I want hosting, I want to give you money but you dont even want to show yourself. Like that how to Malaysia Boleh? How to acheive mission 2020?

    OK how bout some positive encouragement: the next 5 hosts who come forward will be blessed with Server Uptime +2 and Wealth +3.

    Hi sauerkraut,

    This is HSTAN from www. malaysiahosting2u. com.

    I hope somebody really can bless for server uptime, but usually it is from the effort of sys admin not by bless.

    Hi sauerkraut,
    I thought you want to compile a list of the web hosting providers' representative username here. I didn't know that we are supposed to introduce ourselves here.

    Oh well, I guess I'll start first. Hmm, what to say about myself, yes, obviously my name is Michael Foo. I'm the founder and currently the CEO of KKHost.Net. I'm a full time trader and part time web hosting provider.

    I like badminton a lot and I never miss any badminton matches that the Malaysian team takes part. Unfortunately I stopped playing badminton due to peer pressure, as most of my friends opted for golf.

    I am active in a few local forums, and I use Mini's logo as my display pic. I love automobile, especially the Mini Cooper S! I can only dream about it now :P Currently there are both 528i (E39) and Accord 2.2 VTi in my porch, hopefully in the near future I can welcome the Mini Cooper S to my porch.

    Laptop wise, I think I'm the odd one. I am always an Asus laptop supporter. My first and second laptop were Asus, third was NEC and now I'm using Asus again. Handphone wise, I started with some Nokia phones (3210, 8210, 8310, 6610), upgraded to Sony Ericsson V802SE (Z800i) and I am currently using Dopod 838 Pro.

    I love listening to instrumental music and I'm still learning from my audiophile-master friends.

    Thank you.

    hstan: Congrats, you're first.

    michaelfoo: Good intro. I think you should skip the "fulltime trader, part time host" part. People will think - What? A part timer host? Who's gonna reboot the server when the market is bullish and he's busily trading? But overall it's a convincing piece. By being candid you gave the impression of being an honest host. Highlighting your interest and preference show people your have good taste, hinting that the servers will similarly be managed with high standards.

    fivio: Yes, advertise yourself, not your hosting company.


    OK. Two more slots for World Class Hosting up for grabs. Hurry!

    Hi,
    I'm not scared of that statement because I don't monitor our servers, my sysadmins will do the job. I'm the one who just chit chat with my clients

    Thanks.

    This doesnt sound very good. Hosting is just your side income, if things go sour you can just close shop. More convincing would be people who do it full time for a living. They cant take things easy, it's either do or die.

    I think the perfect host would be something like this:

    I'm xxx CEO of yyy hosting company. I'm a bespectacled nerdy guy doing hosting fulltime. I enjoy reading thick technical manuals and mucking around with servers. I dont have much social life so you can be assured that I'll spend my free time monitoring the servers closely. I've two other enthusiastic partners running this business together so you dont have to worry that I got knocked down by a car.

    Currently we are running only three servers. Which means we are big enough to have a decent income but also small enough to be managed well and offer cheap hosting because of low the overhead. Come and host with us now before we grow into a big bad hosting company who neglect customers and does shameless overselling.

    Edited:
    Any host with this profile?
    Come introduce yourself
