    I used to have them a long time ago. They were the worst service. There were times that the site was down for days! They own www.cishostsucks.com so no one can talk bad about them. They used to own anoher domain that supposedly rated hosting companies. They of course were always number one - this until the BBB found out about them & shut them down.

    Anytime - sorry that I did miss this post in the beginning. Hopefully it is not too late. I usually do not speak bad about any company - but they gave me the worst service. Sure they offer phone support, but they do not tell you that you might be on hold for 2 hours before getting help.

    Yea thanks for the heads up. I'm glad I didnt do any business with them. I also uncovered some info about their CEO back when he was in college, he tried to sue the prof. because he was given a C for a final grade, turns out....the professor then uncovered that he cheated in the course.

    Sound like a honest guy, dont think so....do you think his company operates on the same wavelength, probably.

    Take it easy!

    Good ol' C I Don't Give a Damn About Anything But the Bottom Line, Therefore You Don't Matter Host. I haven't heard that name in months now, not since their many petitions/lawsuits and their incredibly stupid human billboard stunt:

    Mind you, this little gem was brought to my attention a few minutes ago and I gotta say, it really made my day. Attaboy Chris. Make yet another promise you can't possibly keep.

    (Can anyone else find the glaring and painfully obvious logic flaw in this?)

    LOL, thats the dumbest thing I ever heard of. And 100 percent uptime is not possibly. Ive read the contract, they say that exclues all natural events, like fiber being chopped, or bad weather, or tier 1 provider outages.

    It also clashes with the 30-minute hardware replacement guarantee. If they have to put in new hardware, then the server is down.

    The natural events beyond their control are things they can't be blamed for, and that's understandable (like what happened in northeastern US and Ontario with the blackouts in August.)
