I have had excellent reactions previously from similar threads, a few of which we have implemented, and also, since In my opinion this thread may benefit us around our rivals, let's begin

What you think to become good features for any hosting company to provide? Exactly what do people really search for past the apparent for example top-notch support, low costs, etc?

Sincerely,

To be sure Annette, it sure appears this way out of this view too.
Anyway Vlad, I believe great customer support is number 1. Some hosts are fortunate with very few support problems, but when they don't provide good customer support, clients will (and really should) look elsewhere.

Because this question continues to be posed before a couple of occasions, I'll present only a couple of tips. The particulars are available on other discussions of the identical subject.

1. Honesty
2. Full disclosure
3. Equitable tos
4. Upgrading arrange for clients who outgrow fundamental shared server hosting. This could include moving to servers having a more small group of accounts and devoted servers (or maybe a referral intend to trustworthy devoted server companies).
Annette,

Our bodies configuration and business guidelines are extremely carefully according to careful surveys of current and potential customers -- this is exactly what causes us to be this type of strong firm, company, I actually do pose this to nearly everybody I'm able to find. : ) By modifying to users' needs, we get to be the best there's, its that easy. You should know your market to be able to be great, and believe to locate what individuals want rather than request?

I guess my real question is: so why do you insist upon posting it everywhere? If you're that worried about what individuals are searching for, why not survey your overall clients (I understand, you already do), or publish market research at the site for site visitors? Sitepoint has changed their forum rules to ensure that this kind of what essentially comes down to passive bombarding isn't permitted from hosts I am wondering if this sounds like something which other forums should adopt too. I dislike what seems to become a certain sneakiness within the guise of "help".

I figured I appreciated simply because sitepoint had transformed the guidelines to ensure that hosts could not publish garbage such as this. I suppose that's why he turned up here. Bad. This was once this type of nice forum. Well i guess...maybe here we are at WebHostingTalk to consider an identical rule.

Here's my two cents. One host can not be everything to everybody. Asking vague open ended questions such as this is fairly pointless. If you're truly worried about pleasing your clients, current or prospective then request them. And selection spot to request them than the usual survey on Your own site?

Annette,

You are heading lower a really wrong path attacking my opportunity -- other firms have discovered hard method in which I do not take gently to undeserved attacks. Do not do it.

I'll survey when i deem necessary where I deem fit, that's my prerogative. Like a competitor, I am certain you are quite inflammed by my firm, and that i can realize that its very difficult to contend with someone like us. However, that does not mean that you ought to get out there and start flaming us simply because we are good, but instead get tough and compete.

We have seen this time around in and break, and also the only factor your attacks will result in is pointless argument. I've the knowledge and understanding to indicate 500 different issues with any particular hosting company -- from security to customer support. Don't flame me simply because we are good, since you do *not* want me making your situation.

You have to learn to utilize us instead of against us -- we've and can still set standards for other hosts to follow along with (and boy have I heard rather amusing remarks from the other web hosting companies have stated about us . If you do not like this, compete and be better, but for now, don't flame us simply because we are who we're.

Possess a wonderful day.

Sincerely,

Why is youre service better apart from you saying so? Your greater prices? Maybe your choice to complete non IP based website hosting to save cash at the fee for your clients? Or the possible lack of real-time support these other hosts both offer?
Really, devoted IP's are visiting all accounts because it is an even more asked for feature once we initially believed. If you are going to say search engines like google, yes, I know that you will find gossips that search engines like google prohibit by IP, however I have also browse the exact opposite nevertheless domain names. If your user wants an IP, they'll be available soon When they *really* need one now, we are able to add it.

Real-time support is totally unthinkable until we are able to hire staff for any phone center. Goal support is actually unnecessary as our e-mail reactions are as quick -- the majority of our clients verify that.

And so far as greater prices, I do not think so. We provide very affordable packages, especially thinking about our true take care of our clients. Not one other hosting company offers our degree of service and uptime.

Anyway, enough about this! Cheer up people! Its summer season, nice vibrant outdoors, so *smile* and prevent being so darn inflammed!

Sincerely,

Allows return to subject, shall we?

&gt&gt 2. Full disclosure

What can you mean with this? Others seem sensible, but I'm a little confused by that one.
Your arrogance is really astounding, as well as your reply makes simply no sense poor this thread.

"Get on [my] situation"? "Irritated because of your firm"? What the heck are you currently speaking about? Your attitude is irritating, to be certain. However your firm concerns me not whatsoever.

Your "surveys" can't be done everywhere the thing is fit, and also you learned this at Sitepoint. Your high opinion of on your own is not shared. The romance-fest that individuals participate in at other forums won't be copied here. Thank you for permitting everybody to determine the real character that you simply provide. It's fortunate that you will find forums such as this.

In case your actions here and elsewhere are what you believe people should follow, together with your arrogant pronouncements on everything on the planet and undeserved attacks on others (cf. the hostrocket thread), i quickly will happily take another path. Following someone like yourself lower any road would result in the same contemptible arrogance that you simply display as though it were a prize. The way you engage others is crude and boorish, as well as your attempts at showing yourself as well as your firm as something that to aspire fall very short.

You don't convince people of the greatness by frequently saying it. You convince people of greatness whenever you convince people who you talk to them being an equal. You convince people of greatness whenever you convince them that you're more worried about them than looking yourself. To date, you've shown neither.

Thinkhost - I must state that your arrogance and constant surveys and attacking of other hosts at sitepoint makes me stop reading through the hosting forums there. I had been tickled once the moderator transformed the rule to ensure that you were not permitted to begin your stupid threads any longer. And you come right here and begin your garbage again!!

I've always loved webhostingtalk since the hosts that publish here regularly (hostcaters, hostmatters, webauthorities, cfoxhost, netfronts, intrafronts, ultraspeed) sorry basically left anybody out, publish useful reactions to individuals questions. They have existed for some time and appear truly thinking about helping others. I have not known these to just start stupid survey threads for example, "How would you like us? We believe we are good, but you want to hear that you simply think we are good? Enough about me exactly what do you consider me?"

Ought to be fact, I do not recall seeing any posts on your part helping anybody besides yourself. That's NOT the type of host I'd want or recommend to my buddies.

And Hopefully due to your stupid survey thread the moderator of webhostingtalk can change their policy too, like sitepoint needed to, due to YOU. It's unfortunate you need to ruin things for everybody.

Baby wolves are awesome, run using the pack
This really is getting absolutely absurd.

1. Vlad, this subject was covered in here age range ago - perform a search and you will find the subject from Felix of Can-Host. Examine that.

2. I truly don't wish to play Moderator here, but this thread is beginning to veer off around the wrong tangent.

To be honest Vlad, your meaning of flaming does not match exactly what the relaxation from the Net thinks. Please relax and re-think your situation before you decide to weigh along with what you consider. You are (quite regrettably) giving out the sense of the host who appears to consider he's the hosting market cornered and even dictate the marketplace based on his whim. Puh lease. I ought to include that such posts are about as annoying (in my experience) as telemarketers asking if you want to purchase a product from their store.

Btw, Annette wasn't attacking your organization - she was more querying the potency of this kind of open-ended publish, published across multiple forums. Please a minimum of possess the humbleness to silently and kindly explain the defects in her own arguments rather of riding around the proverbial high equine. Here is a hint : *cough* *hack* BURST *hack* *cough*

That leads me to include a place as to the I require of web hosting companies : going for a friendly attitude when you are performing anything, rather than trying to accept high ground and alluring others to right into a flame war along with you.

P.S. To save you time Vlad, perhaps you should pop to http://www.winternet.com/~mikelr/flame02.html and find out which category you squeeze into.

P.P.S. I additionally hope which i really do not grounds to show on my small HellFlamer and do something such as this : http://www.hostspot.com/ubb/Forum1/HTML/000384.html

Believe me, when I am feeling really sick like me presently, then your urge to behave to alleviate all of the sickness and tension in the human body increases tenfold.

Ok last one, it's less than summer time where I'm. It's flowing with rain, it's freezing and it is winter. Nuff stated.

Haha! That may 't be anymore perfect of the impression!

And FYI, Vlad, full disclosure is applicable to full disclosure associated with a ambigious terms inside your AUP or TOS, in addition to covering definitions of bandwidth, CPU usage, etc.
BC: I almost stated, is another BURST outbreak, however, you beat me into it

It's my job to keep my awesome but:

"You're heading lower a really wrong path attacking my opportunity -- other firms have discovered hard method in which I do not take gently to undeserved attacks. Do not do it."

and

"because you need to do *not* want me making your situation."

isn't a great way to obtain the ball moving. To be sure I do not believe that Annette was flamming you, although I believe a couple of flames now may be appropriate.

BC, relax. Along with peach air by helping cover their bile eco-friendly thinkhost.
