HostNine Review

August 31st, 2007

Great review of HostNine by Liam found on Web Hosting Talk.

6 Month Review Of HostNine

I thought I’d post a review of HostNine as my 6 month’s invoice came out yesterday.

I’ve been involved with web hosting for about 6-7 years or so. Over the course of the years, I’ve worked with a handful of hosting companies. I would say HostNine is one of, if not, the best hosting providers I’ve worked with.

I was leaving my last hosting provider as I had just out grown them and was time to move on. They weren’t the cheapest solution out there and I figured I could find a better deal else where. My search begin for another company to work with. I’m not a true reseller, I own a design studio and need hosting for my clients. I set out on my search for a new reseller host with larger plans at an affordable price. I also needed php4 and php5 support, something not all resellers’ offered.

BlueHost Discount

August 31st, 2007

BlueHost is one of the most popular and fastest growing shared hosting providers with more than 300,000 domains hosted. Since we’ve had them recommended several times, we really wanted to find a nice promo for you guys.

Only one problem: BlueHost doesn’t do any coupons, promo codes, vouchers, rebates, discounts or promotions. Ever!

There is still one way to get a cheaper price though. BlueHost has a sister company HostMonster, which is owned by the same people, shares offices and servers with BlueHost, uses the same support staff, offers the same features, etc., but is $1/month cheaper.

Update: HostMonster has since the beginning of 2008 increased their prices by $1/month, so they now match the prices of BlueHost. Our visitors are still able to get the discounted price thought.

Take a look at this BlueHost / HostMonster feature comparison:

BlueHost HostMonster
Disk Storage 600 1500 GB 600 1500 GB
Gigs of Site Transfer 6000 15,000 GB/month 6000 15,000 GB/month
Host Unlimited Domains check check
Free Domain Name check check
POP3 Email Accounts 2500 Unlimited
IMAP Email Accounts 2500 Unlimited
FTP Accounts 1000 Unlimited
PHP 4 and PHP 5 check check
Perl 5


Python check check
Ruby / Ruby on Rails check check
MySQL Databases 50 100
PostgreSQL Databases 50 100
Price $6.95/month $6.95/month
with our promo


So if you’re thinking about signing up with BlueHost remember to also take a look at HostMonster.

HostNine Hosting – 5 Great Features

August 31st, 2007

HostNineI’ve just discovered HostNine on Web Hosting Unleashed’s list of most recommended hosts.

The company is a quite new self-funded startup, launched in August 2006, but founded by experienced web hosting veterans.

I haven’t tried out their service yet, but the following features convinced me that I soon will:

  • Uptime Guarantee
    Quite rare to see a Service Level Agreement (SLA) on cheap shared hosting plans. HostNine compensates their customers, if the average availability of their websites falls below 99.9%.
  • Support via Instant Messenger
    Most hosts offer 24×7 support via phone and Helpdesk, but HostNine also offers support via Instant Messenger (Yahoo IM, MSN IM, AOL IM and Live Chat). How great is that?
  • Choose your Website Location
    When you sign up, you choose where in the world you want your website located. Choose between USA (California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, New York, Texas, Virginia), Europe (Berkshire, UK) or Asia (Singapore).
  • Free Dedicated IP
    On all plans (except the HostNine Basic plan where it is charged $1/month).
  • HostNine Blog and Forum
    Great blog written by Isabel Wang of theWHIR fame and an active Community Forum.

You can find more info about HostNine on their website at www.hostnine.com.

midPhase vs AN Hosting

August 19th, 2007

I just discovered that AN Hosting is basically the same company as midPhase.

midPhase Inc. has had an amazing growth since the company was founded in 2003 and during the process they have acquired several smaller hosting companies like AN Hosting (shared linux hosting), ThrillHost & Autica (reseller hosting, VPS and dedicated servers) and SingleHop (dedicated servers).

While the other companies have each their speciality AN Hosting and midPhase’s Linux plans are quite similar and more importantly use the same hardware, same datacenters, same support staff, same everything!

The comparison has been updated January 2008 to reflect the upgraded hosting plans.

midPhase Hosting AN Hosting
Disk Storage 200 350 GB 250 500 GB
Gigs of Site Transfer 3,000 3,500 GB/month 2,500 5,000 GB/month
Number of Domain Names 1 10 20
Free Domain Name check check
PHP 4 and PHP 5 check check
MySQL Databases 1 Unlimited
Price $7.95/month $6.95/month

AN Hosting offers you a little less monthly bandwidth, but 40% more storage, 40% more bandwidth, lets you host 20 domains on the same account and lets you create as many MySQL databases as you like – killer features if you’re a web designer.

And all this for $6.95/month – $1/month less than midPhase.

We encourage you to take a look at both midPhase and AN Hosting, do your own comparison, and see which host best suits your preferences.

midPhase Reviews

August 18th, 2007

Several very popular blogs recommends midPhase:

Web hosting is one of those behind-the-scenes components of a Web site that never gets much attention… That is, until there’s a brownout, a server outage, or a huge traffic surge!

If you’ve ever run a successful Web site, then you’ve experienced at least one – and probably all – of the unexpected and crazy events I just mentioned. You also probably know, then, that a great Web hosting company is defined by how it responds to your needs during these times of crisis.

This response and subsequent attention to detail are the precise reasons why I host all of my new project sites with MidPhase. After dealing with two other hosting companies when I first started out on the Web, I’ve found that being able to work with the approachable, patient, and intelligent team at MidPhase is a huge relief.

Admittedly, just about any hosting company is adequate 98% of the time. It’s this additional 2% where MidPhase really shines (not to mention eliminates my headache), and this is why I give them my business and also recommend them to friends.
