    I wonder which services you want to use from them.

    I've been with hostmonster for awhile and I'm a pretty huge fan. They've always gotten back to me pretty quick when I've had questions (friendly too). Never tried hostgator, so like a lot of others, it's a one-sided response.

    But I'm happy with Hostmonster and don't plan on moving any time soon :)

    i use hostmonster and i am absolutely enamored. unmetered bandwidth/storage, a ridiculous amount of ftp/email/mysql/addon domains/subdomains, php/mysql/cgi/plethora of scripts such as phpbb/etc, cpanel access, even ssh. there isn't much more you can ask for from a host. all that, plus they have one of the best customer services i've ever come across. whenever i used their live help, i was connected with an assistant within 5 minutes and they always gave me extremely helpful answers and were always very courteous. emails were replied to within 2 hours and any account changes i needed (such as ssl installation, upgrade to dedicated ip, etc) were done on the spot via live support. especialyl at the price for all this ($4.95 if you google a little and find the promo link), i'm just rendered speechless.

    of course, once again, i haven't tried hostgator so can't say anything about them.

    Anyone know how to enter coupons at hostgator once your first month is over? or to purchase longterm hosting, I ordered the $9.95 account, and paid 1 cent for the first month, now I pay 9.95 per month, is there any other way to enter coupons so i an get 20% off or something, or pay for a lump sum long term payment.


    Thank You

    I think that you can google for that. But I think that you will find nothing. maybe other specials.

    Have never tried hostmonster. Hostgator is good and they are popular just like Godaddy ( Maybe better )

    This question sounded like: 'what is better Apple or Pear?'

    One will say an Apple for sure, it is very useful and and tasty!

    But the another will say, why apple? Pear is better, it is easier to bite it! It also reminds a bulb!

    The OP should have started a poll, if he'd like to know statistics of use and preferrings, but even this is not the way to know what is really better...

    The coupons works only when you register the first time with them. You should cancel the account with them and sign up again and this time use the 20% off coupon. (I could get you a $40 rebate also)

    You can request with their customer service mentioning you are just testing for first month and wish to continue with them with promotion.

    Mellowhost.com suspend my account and takes all my clients domain names

    Hello Policeman,

    I have something to share about my other small web hosting services.

    I was subscribed with Mellowhost.com as a master reseller, i was always sending a support tickets because they always got an outages everyday. and one of my client a local governmet website was hacked, they never help me to fix this, i got mad with this company so i was posted all my complaints to the forums.

    So what they did to me, they suspend my account without any valid notice.

    My concerned is, they also suspend my domain reseller account and mark my name as fraud, thats embarrasing to me and to my domain name, they takes all my client domain names and never give me anymore, even i always sent a request to transfer my domains services to my new domain reseller account.

    They suspend all my accounts even i always updated my bills.

    I was tried to contact DirectI, the support gives me the phone and address, its came from UK, but i see there domains ethii.com and hagioteam.com its came from BANGLADESH.

    So who is fraud?

    After a horrific 6 months with another host I attempted to try out hostmonster - then they tried to make me jump through hoops to confirm my identity (I did not wish to pay for an O/s phone call or send them a copy of the front AND back of my credit card.)
    I canceled my account and within a couple of days they refunded my money.

    I signed up with HostGator a couple of months back.
    Fantastic helpful support ( including live help)
    Low prices
    No problems at all with the site and two addon sites I tested them out with.
    Im about to sign up for their reseller account now I know they deliver what they promised - As a webmaster based out of the USA my vote would go with HostGator

    If you have a good budget then HostGator would be a great choice.
