I looked around at hosts today and did a search to check up on them.
I find the easiest way to find out if a host is good or not is type the host’s name, and then “sucks” right after it.
Well I found one with the least amount of what I would call “valid complaints” such as major downtime and such.
Look at me rambling without giving my sites a plug.
I forwarded iworkwithtech.com to the same location, so they are both going to be the same for a little while until I get done splitting them into two . I do have plans. Other wise I wouldn’t have pitched out money like that.
as I was looking at hosting sites. I noticed a lot of the sites like blue host, you you know , the ones that claim unlimited storage space and bandwidth for like 7 dollars a month. They all had tons of complaints. I stopped on the one I got when I saw realistic numbers.. Well to me they are unbelievable, considering I’m a bit old school.
|Disk Space (Raid Storage)||1,500 GB|
Can you tell I copied and pasted that from the site?
well 49 bucks a year for that , not so bad.
PHP capable. That alone stomps all over my old out dated host 50megs.com.
I can’t believe the crap I was accepting. 75 a year for 1 gig storage no scripting no ht access, nothing. Each thing I would want turned on like “security and registration privacy” add 3 dollars a month for each upgrade. on top of that, their name server is “freewebs.com” WTF!!!!!!? you can’t register that crap with anyone, no one takes that junk serious. freewebs, come on man.
Well I went on with powweb . I am happier with this move over where I was. So if you have any input such as “oh man you should have gone to…” blah blah blah. Don’t bother responding. The bill has been paid, I’m gonna camp a little while.

I am the owner of iworkwithpeople.comI have not been able to connect to my website now for nearly a week, I have seen that I can connect while at work on a t3 line, and I can connect on my female friend’s computer that has a dsl line, and a few friends from live.Pirillo.com have helped me and checked the connection from where they are and they all connect.. except the people on comcast . My site’s address is iworkwithpeople.com and the service I have is through 50megs.com. i assume they took it upon themselves to block 50megs.com for what ever reason they saw fit. in the process of blocking 50megs, they blocked me.. This reduces the number of page visits considerably. Considering they monopolized the cable industry, it looks more like a 20′s gangster bull crap “ehh mugsy don’t let no one connect to them until they pay me 50% seeeeeeee” .I am not happy with this .
The letter I wrote is to follow…
Comcast Houston blocking my domain.
I own a website, through 50megs.com
I can connect to my file manager on sbc dsl, I can connect through sprint dsl and I have connected at work with a t3 line, but when I get home or to any of my friend’s houses with Comcast I can not connect to 50megs.com . I am near time to re up on my domain name and hosting bills and getting really frustrated that I can not connect from home where i feel safe. I want to connect to my service and it appears you are blocking me. Please look into this and solve this issue.

Kinda looks like they sent me a bunch of nothing from comcast.. feels like I am trying to teach my cat how to pee in the toilet.
Someone sent me a link to a proxy thingy for myspace
and it actually worked, just typed in my web site address and bamI whent directly to my site. I did not type in my password or anything though, I really do not know if I trust a third party site like that… ya know? so if you are on comunismcast or any service that can not see my site right now, gie that a try. see for your self that you are actually blocked.
They host my stuff and for two days now I can not log into my account or even see http://iworkwithpeople.com
which is hosted at 50megs.com .. heck i can’t even go to 50 megs. . this is killing my visit count.
You know, I am starting to think comcast is blocking my host’s i.p. address.
No one can go there that I know of, who are on comcast.
I mean my buddy in another city on dsl can go there
I can go there from my job just 4 miles up the road, and my job uses a whole nother service.
if you can go to 50megs.com or iworkwithpeople.com please leave a notice as to what service you use and which of the two sites you can access.
