I think you're always going to have trouble with a shared or VPS host when your site starts to get traffic.

I would stay away from Clook- they were ok at first but when our site got traffic heavy they just pulled the plug on it - right in the middle of December - costing us tens of thousands of $ in revenue. Then they transferred us to their VPS and it was slow as hell, so in the end we ended up getting a proper dedicated server from rackspace.

It costs about 700$ a month but just keep a watch on your server load as, with all the cscart database lookups and modrewrites, you may need a dedicated box sooner than you think.

I am currently with Siteground. You are right they stink. They respond quickly to trouble tickets with the exception... that they do not send you an email that they did responded so they close the ticket due to no response from you. Gotta love it. Yesterday they took down my email due to an issue with Tell A Friend and spambots. I had no idea because once again they did not tell me. My customers started calling asking why their emails were bouncing. I had no clue. So, like an idiot I go onto Siteground and login to send them a trouble ticket only to find a trouble ticket from them telling me what they did and that I had to fix my Tell a Friend option before they would let the email run again. Now, the weird thing is I have been able to send email this whole time, I was not receiving emails. This is why I was a little slow on the uptake. According to Siteground, they had stopped the sending part only. So six emails back and forth before they actually got both sending and receiving emails working again. I have also been suffering for website speed. The site just hangs sometimes. I put in a trouble ticket and they tell me they can find nothing wrong. This has been going on for months now. I am very frustrated.

I was with siteground, I got out and have still got nearly two years to run on my host account, I thought it was worth it to get away from them.

Cyberlnc (Scott) the best to move to, most on here will agree. I am uk based so I went with Clook, who in my humble opinion are 2nd best to Cyberlnc!

Best of luck

I just checked CyberInc and they have a NO Vacancy sign up. They say they will be adding new servers soon. I will keep on checking back with them. ;)

Yeah

Word on the street is they are making BIG upgrades to existing servers etc.

Contact S-Combs on here directly (PM) he is a great bloke and always has time to sort things out. I know he was busy the other week and maybe he still is.

Thanks for the kind words Barry and everyone else.

Sherry: I'll be happy to help you if you can wait just a few more days. My hands are very full at the moment trying to get new servers configured. If you have any questions about our services, feel free to send me a message.


cpugeek: I just finished moving a cs-cart client from Hostgator because their account was suspended for resource usage. This is becoming a big problem with this script because every new revision is more demanding than the last.

Hi. I am getting email this morning again so I can wait. I'll just have to keep logging into Siteground to make sure there not doing something without me knowing again. Someone suggested I upgrade to the new 1.3.5 version saying that will help regarding the spambots. My issue is I am out of my league with installing the software, etc. Siteground did the install for me. So I would have to have someone do the upgrades, move, etc. for me so it doesn't get messed up.:D

can tell you for experience do a monthly contract first to see if the host can carry your sites load. plus to check out their support system.


bluehost is a terrible host if anyone recommends them to you just don't!

were with hostgator and we've had no issues with site speed or support speed ever. not to mention someone is available 24/7 by phone. their servers are all located at theplanet and they have major pipes there with redundancy.

Beware of ServerPronto aka Infolink. Google the name ServerPronto and see how many horror stories you'll find. These people are crooks. They will continue to bill you for 6 months after you cancel hosting with them. They require you to fax a photo ID to them before they will cancel, and they still may not cancel the account.

I have had excellent luck at Cartika Hosting (cartikahosting.com), where I've had a reseller account for three years. I have run CS-Cart there, as well as on WiredTree.com, where I have a VPS. WiredTree seems fine so far; I haven't been there that long, though.

A couple of folks in this thread mentioned they had moved from "shared hosting" to CyberLNC. (Never used CyberLNC so I have no opinion one way or the other.) But surely those are shared hosting accounts at CyberLNC? If they're giving away dedicated servers for $9.99 a month, I'm joining right now! :D

If you have a good Web host, shared hosting normally won't be a problem until you get quite a bit of site traffic.

And I agree that Webhostingtalk.com is not a bad place to start if you're shopping for Web hosts.
