    Hello,

    Never compare webhosting by its price alone. Balance it out price + service + reliability.

    If you weight your purchase decision based on 100% price, then you end up with problems. A balance host should be like exabytes, ipserverone, kkhosts.net etc.

    Thank you,

    Hi, I agree fully with fivio. Price is only one of the issue when you are looking for a web host. As you have experienced bad service and uptime with the previous host, i believe you know that reliabilty plays a part too.

    Hey fivio,
    Thanks for mentioning our name, but it is kkhost.net without the 's' :P

    Fivio has been around for some time too.

    Won't go wrong if you go for established providers

    Thanks.

    Depending on your target market I would recommend getting a web host provider based on your target market.

    For instance, if your target market are US customers, go for a web hosting company located in the US, since their servers are closer to your target market, thus affecting access speed.

    However, for if your target market is located in Malaysia, go for a local web host, since most web servers in Malaysia are located on MyLoca Datacenter at Cyberjaya, in which local access speed to these servers are faster .

    In terms of stability and reliability, from my experience, many big/major US webhost are more reliable than Malaysian Web Hosts, and I've hosted hundreds of sites on various hosting providers. Malaysian web host for some unknown reason are prone to go down once in a while, especially if your site gets a lot of traffic.

    If you're going for shared web hosting, you might also want to use a online service to check how many accounts are hosted on a single server because some web host cram too many accounts on a single server thus affecting server reilability and speed.

    Just my two cents on this issue.

    Until next time, explore the possibilities.

    Hello there,

    Pete, as for the physical location of the server is very important actually.

    1. Local server are much more faster for local ISP. Unless they are using ADSL for servers
    2. Content Regulation in the location of the server. In certain country, some content could not be published.
    3. Security of the servers. Location plays important roles.

    Hosting just not only be calculated by space + bandwidth amount. Webhosting holds crucial data of a company. Thus, balance your needs, budget, and features. Do not be greed to grab unlimited everything

    By the way, there is no such thing as UNLIMITED BANDWIDTH. Unmetered yes but not UNLIMITED.

    Dear Pete,

    Like I said, there is no UNLIMITED bandwitdh. You are using unmetered bandwitdh which allocated in shared enviroment. It should work fine if the bandwitdh usage is within their budget. But if you started to pump the bandwitdh, you will get their attention

    Dear Pete,

    I do not want to argue about the UNLIMITED concept here as it will be off-topic.By the way, to give false advertisement is not my business strategy. Unlimited bandwitdh is not a real thing. There are few website explaining on this concept.

    http://www.1stchoicewebhost.co.uk/un...width-myth.htm

    Of course, the webhost CAN put unlimited bandwitdh. It is just a gimmick
    However, it is your money, if you are happy with the provider then stay ^_^

    Dear Pete,

    That is why i said I do not want to argue. It is your money
    Since you posted some of the AUP / TOS of the company. I will show you the LIMITATION given in your unlimited package.

    CPU Usage
    Sites may not use extreme unwarranted CPU usage. This includes usage of "heavy" scripts or Flash/shockwave files. By heavy we mean oversized without cause, to the point where most users would be unable to view them in a reasonable amount of time. No single site may consume 30% of CPU usage for a sustained period of time.

    Service Resale
    Customer may not resell the Service or any portion of the Service unless under a Reseller plan.

    File repository / Dump Sites
    Customer may not use disk space as a file repository, or dump site. This includes using the space in order to store content used on other sites (remote linking) . Examples of this would be using the web space to store images for flash or any other files used on another site but stored on our server.

    Glutting of servers
    Oversized storage of any files that would be unreasonably large (ie. making a zip file filled with text files just to pad the size). Again, your webspace is not for data back up. It is only for hosting real sites.

    ------------------------------

    Well, it is not unlimited storage + unlimited bandwitdh. Bandwitdh usage USES CPU. They limit you at 30%. Which means you cannot use the ADVANTAGES of UNLIMITED badnwitdh.

    The nice statement in TOS does not change the law of physic. The is NO such thing as UNLIMITED storage + UNLIMITED bandwitdh.

    Where can I buy unlimited Harddisk ? Where can I order unlimited lease line bandwitdh ?

    Thank you,

    Dear Pete,

    ---------
    And you seem to not understand that the company is marketing to small business users who will not overwhelm their resources.
    --------

    Uhmmm ... if so, why would they wanted the UNLIMITED package ? You offer UNLIMITED package but target for users who WILL NOT overhelm their resources. Not bad.

    UNLIMITED means that the resources is a lot. Which means in your pricing and package strategy, you target low cost and price sensitive consumers. Moreover, you EMPHASIS on the UNLIMITED features. Which means you WANT to attract people WHO WANT unlimited feature.

    But you suddenly say that "marketing to small business users who WILL NOT overhelm their resources". That totally against your pricing strategy.

    Thank you,
