www.cwihosting.com appears to become a good deal, their hosting plans are nice, as well as their website is clear to see. The control pannel for site administration is excellent, therefore we registered.
In the end were mailing with questions before subscrption, we've got solutions, but when registrerd, the waiting here we are at getting a solution got longer...

First we observed we're able to login with root rights therefore we considered it normal and produced our mySQL databases, however they most likely observed that, removed everything and reinstalled the server without prior warning so only They'd root access (that ought to probably always will be so anyway). Obviously they made it happen unexpectedly or backup therefore we lost all of our databases... Later they'd an accident and that we lost everything again... later they stated to possess been compromised which explains why nothing have been online for 72 hrs, additionally they removed all of our configuration therefore we needed to redo it... later we could not login therefore we mailed for explanations and also got a note with this new passwords. They did not even think about delivering the brand new passwords immediately... no, they anxiously waited until we needed to request them why our passwords are declined. We still do not get why they needed to chhange the passwords. With that time, all of our customers have been removed, forget about POP accounts, only our administrator could login and needed to recreate all customers... no backup obviously !

Today we've forget about database, our website is not up, so when up, PHP3 shows source code (including server passwords) rather than being performed around the server !!
Everything happened throughout yesteryear 3 several weeks.
We're departing CWI at the same time !
We must find the best host and fast, so has anybody found a very honest host we're able to trust ?

Drop the idea of telling us how great the services you provide are.. I do not trust host managers any longer, I would like the recommendation of some clients that have a located website and may say "I have discovered a great host".

thanks ahead of time,
Johnson.
Mr Johnson, Why publish anon if you think so pissed at the organization?. inform them what you are.

Well anywayz suggested hosts : -
http://www.tera-byte.com - Fast Tech Support Team, Reliable stable servers, Cheap host with a lot of features, You can't fail with one of these men.

Let me jump on Tera-Byte, however they use RaQ3's, which scares me. Though if anybody has some re-guaranteeing words here, I might opt for them.

The only real large disadvantage to a RaQ3 is the fact that there's no backup copies. It arrives with a built-in archiving type program, but you need to FTP the backup from the server.

Also, should you run heavy CGI, it has a tendency to bog lower the RaQ3.

Exactly what do you want that i can tell reassure you *lol*

I've found that RAQ3's process cgi programs rather quick :-).

Eddie, RAQ3s process CGI scripts very well to some extent. After you have a script (or 2 or 3) running back to back and doing 100s of forks simultaneously then your RAQ can't cope and bogs lower badly.

For Adam, you will get lots of re-guaranteeing words about Tera-byte from we all (Chicken, me, Eddie, etc.) - they are awesome. You will not be disappointed.

(just like an aside, I'd a couple of questions that we e-mailed Steve overnight - he's clarified them at 7 a.m. American EST today (around an hour ago) and he's located in Edmonton (a couple of hrs behind) - someone's working late! )
Maybe he just begins work early i recall what its prefer to operate a hosting firm *xsigh* up early mattress late. three or four hrs sleep maximum lol. And that i was just a freewebspace provider i am wondering what im letting myself infor establishing like a compensated host lol.

I spot the RAQ's only have 128 Ram, wouldn't take much to bog that lower, i acquired 256 during my home PC.

Tera-Byte's devoted servers include 1 single IP, and sells IP amounts at 30 for $10/month!!!

I suppose whatever you hosts which have devoted servers there avoid using a lot more than 1 IP number for the clients?
Greg, perhaps you have not seen devoted hosts offering IP's at +$2, $1, $.50 per IP??? You will find a couple I'm able to think about that either don't charge, or charge that little. It is just $.33 per IP which is not that uncommon. I believe you have done the mathematics wrong

Adam, the very best factor I ever did was put my sites on the RaQ. I have offered space for you before, however i think you would be best there.
Chicken, when have you offer me space?

Though why would I be best?

They appear to become acceptable for a couple of of my sites.

They'd be I believe! I figured I'd pointed out which i could be glad to host a bunch a occasions, however, you did not appear interested?

You appear to love 1-2 hour support, that we don't offer (though neither do most hosts, heh).
I believe you offered it in my experience once. Initially when i first added you to definitely my ICQ list.

At this time my Site5 e-mail Doesn't work.

I believed of Alabanza, everybody states they're super costly, including you, but they provide you with 500 - 1000 IP's without fee whatsoever with every server. This is exactly why i figured $.33 each was alot, and that is monthly too, not a set amount.


So, at Alabanza you'd spend $ on IP's, and also at tera-byte spent $.33 x 1000 = $330 monthly = $3960 each year, remember, alabanza costs $ each year, and that is per server, so say you'd 10 servers, that's a lot of money.

I must address this publish to obvious the record. None in our servers at CWI Hosting were set up wrong or with open root access. CWI was basically under attack, and also the perpetrators have lately been determined. We informed all clients possibly effected that people had detected suspicious activity.

To be able to safeguard our clients, all passwords needed to be transformed, as well as replacing the hard disk drives to be examined and then leave no back doorways for later attacks. What went down would be a unusual situation within our over four years of economic hosting, and that we required actions to help keep it this way. Most effected clients congratulated us for that quick action not to mention a couple of found the sudden password changes annoying. Please actually that everyone?s data was restored by the newest available backup copies, databases were also saved and available. Our staff labored night and day up until the crisis past, responding to questions and concerns on the way.

If anybody has concerns, such as the writer of this subject, you can get in touch. If anybody doubts that people put service and cost first, please inform me, and that i will arrange an entire risk-free trial in our services myself. By doing this you are able to decide. Appreciate your time and effort.

Yep Greg, you're correct there. Dialtone also doesn't charge for Insolvency practitioners as Home theater system . know. You will find a number of tiny problems you need to estimate when thinking about the "cost" of the devoted server. Obviusly just searching in the setup fee and also the monthly isn't the total picture.

Additionally you pointed out about how exactly a RaQ you had been searching at just included 128MB ram while your pc in your own home has 256. In my opinion that in this way, this really is evaluating apples and oranges.

You are able to barely operate a desktop computer from 32 Megabytes of ram nowadays, while a server with 32 Megabytes of ram could offer pages and take care of many sites (which are non-cgi intensive). Not to imply this is ideal obviously, nor suggested, exactly that this server might be 300x more functional than the usual desktop computer with 32MB ram. Get me?

Obviously, I possibly could be wrong and haven't exactly attempted managing a server with 32, and so i am speaking out my bottom a little. However I don't believe I'm wrong here.

if anybody knows in a different way PLEASE correct me which publish is going to be edited/erased.

Side note: considering improving the ram just just in case for my server presently (included that much) running 64MB, and even up it before a lot of sites jump on the server. Unsure of either 256, 512 ? Anybody with a few knowledge about RaQs? Would you advise? I understand this ought to be a brand new subject... ahhhh no way- beginning new subject, just search for it should you...

Chicken, you're correct concerning the ram. Heck, I made use of a i486 with 20mb like a server, also it labored fine.
