Happy New Year Hostmonster way…

It seems hostmonster is cleaning their servers again.

I have been hosting with them for 18 months with few issues. I also referred more then 10 clients to them. The last referral was just yesterday and today January 10th 2009… all I noticed that my web page was taken down without a single warning…

Contact them and asked for a reason. They said: you are using too much server resources. I told them I had this site up and running for the last 6 months without any change in script/visitors/database so what happened?

The referred me to the error log to check. One of the support suggested that I should delete empty databases. I told her you allow us to use 100 db in your plan why would my 33 databases be an issue even if it is empty??

The reinstated my site and I started working on the error log and scripts only 5 minutes later they just took down the whole site and killed my cpanel access. I had to beg to get back my data…

Moving on .. AVOID hostmonster if you are thinking of a website with more than 100 visitors a day. Once you go up bit with visitors they will take your site down.

  1. I am very thankful to this topic because it really gives useful information.

  2. Your RSS feed doesn’t work in my browser (google chrome) how can I fix it?

    1. You will need to email Google 🙂

  3. I am disappointed with this provider. They are indeed pretenders. They don’t even support or install –

    FFmpeg
    FFmpeg-PHP
    flv2tool
    Mencoder

    One of their smart puppets told me that Jopetto does not give them instructions on how to install them. Avoid FastNext too they are Ukrainian scumbags in ski masks… terrible issues! constant server blackouts! its like their server is working on “salo”(pig beacon).

  4. Screw hostmonster. One month later they blamed it on “using excess resources” and suspended my site without notice. I could not even reach control panel to save my content. I had to beg … very unprofessional …Finally I could save my site and move to another webhost… they suck

  5. Now they say the reson is not excess cpu usage but adult content. Excuse, not much I was working with programmers and as hostmonster limit their php.in file max upload the programmer was testing movie upload on this folder and had no movies other than adult 🙂 :

    Dear Customer,

    It looks like they found adult content in:

    /public_html/yui/dolphinfree/ray/modules/movie/files

    You would need to remove that then I will place this in to the abuse queue so you can respond to them.

    Thanks
