My web hosting company - Featureprice.com (aka Hosting Network in Ft. Myers FL.) is self destructing at a fairly rapid rate. At this point, I'm ready to say "screw the $150 I've pre-paid for the next 12 months" and just get out with my skin and domain rights intact. Please let me know what web-hosting co you are using. and if they are good or bad. I need to transfer my domain and website asap!

No, it's not an emergency, but I need to take some action in the next few days. The biggest problem is going to be getting Featureprice to release my domain. Seems others are having the same type of problems. There's now 2500 complaints logged wit he FLA, Attny Gen. office. I'm ready to bail, but I gotta find a decent, fair and affordable (up-time and customer service oriented) hosting Co.

Featureprice.com hahahah! We (uh cough iHost.biz cough) seem to be getting a slew of customers from them. Wierd, their site makes it look like they're still OK. One person said they (featureprice) basically "disappeared". Is your site still up at all? What's the deal?

Thanks for the Haha's - it's a real help. My site is still up and my e-mail is still being processed - customer service just disappeared and I'm feeling real uneasy about their longitivity.

I never met a web-hosting company that i [b]DID[/b] trust... So I use the other option: Server in the basement, copy of UNIX (it's been Linux and FreeBSD over the years. Currently Linux), and an internet connection. And no one to blame for downtime but myself...

Try this: [url]www.olm.net/cnet[/url] Very fast and always up. They have a pretty big pipe close to the backbone.

I was referred to [url]www.one2host.com[/url] Its in Great Britain, but its about $60/year. Hardest part is the setup the first time, but it has been working pretty much flawlessly for 5 months now. Its also one of the few that support Front Page stuff without extra fees or problems. HTH, Doug Giraud [url]www.giraudtool.com[/url]

I have websites hosted with several different companies. So far, my favorite is [url]bluedomino.com[/url]. $34.95 a month for unlimited bandwidth. Good service.
