Having seen PC Mag's Review, I'd made the decision to provide Interland an attempt. But today 9:30 am Off-shore time, Thursday, May 18, I possibly could not access their website. Anybody know what's going on?
Usually when Interland's primary website is lower it's because of 1 of 2 reasons... 1... the server has been restarted. 2... there's a backbone problem that won't allow traffic between your Interland server. Though I've come across lots of negative comments about Interland, I haven't observed anything wrong myself. We host our website together and contains yet to visit lower. (Knock on wood) For the support, sure I did previously remain on hold to have an hour approximately, but recently it's been only the very best. Anyhow, hope your experience is just like mine!

And also you refer to this as support?? Seems like you're the support on their behalf, not the other way round!

Whoops! There goes another $.02!
Davids, if you are planning to create Interland seem brighter than whitened, a minimum of get it done from an Ip outdoors the Interland network (see http://www.arin.net/cgi-bin/whois.pl).

In most justness to Interland, once they understand it properly, their services are the among the best I have seen, and also at an inexpensive cost. Sometimes around the adage of higher the demon you are aware of have located together for just two years. Sure, I've gremlins at the outset of a merchant account, actually I be prepared to have them (from the host company), but when the service is to establish, things are usually pretty stable.

However, be skeptical of the register procedure. Because they used the incorrect domain title on a single of my recent newbies, and essentially triggered full of stress to have it correct. I have yet to ascertain if they've double charged me up to now, when they will they will receive a stern warning from American stock exchange about this (as they have recently been informed).

The primary trouble with Interland that I've come across is you cannot send them a question. You need to exercise the answer yourself after which send them instructions regarding how to repair it, otherwise they do not actual execute a fix, they simply fudge a typical answer. This really is Suitable for people like myself, with a fundamental knowledge of the technologies involved, however i have a pity party for those who are getting their first stab in internet marketing.
I love their server package, so what can I only say. Like I stated, I have located together for just two years, and am generally happy. If this goes tits-up, I do not expect these to have the ability to repair it without me letting them know just how I would like it fixed. This is actually the same goes with all providers, maybe I am only a control freak!

Essentially, I do not trust other bands understanding or capacity to perform a task until they've demonstrated it. Therefore, should i be interacting by having an anonymous support department, after i haven't spoken to that particular person before, I do not expect these to be aware of the inner workings of my setup and that i do expect these to listen. I refer to it as controlling your supplier, rather than them controlling me.

Triumph, this helped me laugh aloud. I have spent all day long attempting to research web hosting companies for any smallish business I am setting up. It is so difficult to understand how much to trust the reviews you read out here, particularly when there's merely a couple of. Scoping the man's WHOIS was brilliant and funny.

Interland's still on my small narrow your search, although not towards the top of it, to date.
newto this---Use the search function towards the top of this forum for Interland.
You'll find several subjects.....I know.
Best of luck.

Hey, thanks folks! Specifically for the hyperlink, Duster. I have done lots of research and contacting within the last couple of days, and that i-land is no more under (my) consideration, for whatever my somewhat-educated-newbie opinion may be worth.
You are welcome. By yesterday, Interland continues to be nominated towards the RBL (Realtime Black List). If recognized, this means e-mail from the domain located on their own servers won't be recognized by about 40% of ISP's Internet servers (concerning the amount that sign up for RBL). It's due to coping with services that support spammers.
&gt&gtRealtime Black List

Ye Godz and little fishes, as Gran accustomed to say. Wrong spot to be throwing up my fresh little domain, seems like.

I am glad to listen to it, though. I detest junk e-mail.
Duster,

From what I have learned in the RBL (http://maps.vix.com/rbl), they merely block specific mailservers for his or her people. So if you're mentioning towards the junk e-mail you received by some marketing company located @ interland (can't recall the URL, sorry), the RBL will most likely only block their smtp service IP. I might be wrong, which would not be the very first time!

I suspect the RBL is only going to block an entire webhost should they have a lot of people bombarding using their system (I do not have evidence to state Interland has, so cannot comment), although not sure if this sounds like the situation in cases like this. Naturally, I'd be considered a little peeved if my mail ip was blocked due to it (actually I am monitoring it regularly).

TTFN
While neither people can presume to talk for MAPS, their mentioned guidelines allow it to be obvious that of Interland will probably be banned in order to get Interland to cooperate in preventing junk e-mail.

from RBL"
The MAPS (Mail Abuse Prevention System LLC) RBL(Realtime Blackhole List) is a listing of hosts and systems which are recognized to be friendly, or at best neutral, to abusers of individuals systems with the idea to originate or relay junk e-mail in order to provide junk e-mail support services.
Additionally, it states:
Blackholing Because of Junk e-mail Support Services

Additionally to individuals domain names which originate or relay junk e-mail, organizations supplying junk e-mail support services are qualified for listing within the RBL. "Spam support services" includes:
(i) hosting webpages that are marketed by junk e-mail
(ii) supplying e-mail drop boxes or auto responders that are marketed by junk e-mail
(iii) supplying assets for example DNS services, banner advertisements, hit counters, script processing and form handling services to sites marketed by junk e-mail
(iv) supplying software or services for disbursing junk e-mail
(v) hosting webpages or else supplying connectivity tothose who provide software or services for disbursing junk e-mail

(viii) supplying software or services to get e-mailaddresses at all apart from confirmed opt-in techniques,e.g., cropping addresses from webpages, newsgroup articles, an internet-based sites, or mining addresses using "dictionary attacks" or automated processes with regards to drawing e-mail addresses with no understanding and consent from the proprietors of individuals e-mail addresses or (ix) ongoing to supply service or use of clients supplying junk e-mail support services after such activity continues to be introduced towards the access provider's attention.

... (quite simply we've blackholed AOL's mail relays on several occasion.)

There's lots of money to make within the Web service provider
business, you don't have to take every customer to be able to succeed, and spammers can cost you much more money over time compared to what they is ever going to pay out.
We might find all Interland indexed by RBL as lengthy because they still host spamware sites in breach that belongs to them hypocritical polices against junk e-mail.
