    Web Hosting Reviews: BlueHost, Hostnine - Uptime

    (Page 5 of 5 )

    HostNine promises 99 percent uptime on their website. Now that's pretty cool. But here are some user experiences that point to the contrary:

    "I also wanted to add that their uptime is terrible an impressive 70.8% for January. Another thing there guarantee doesn't live up to. Site says 99.9% uptime and daily backups none of which have been done. Something needs to be done to them."

    This is from the same thread as above. It actually is so bad that another (totally separate) fellow set up another thread on webhostingtalk complaining about uptime (here). The HostNine representative actually replied to this thread and stated their willingness to resolve the issue to the user's satisfaction. But nobody seems to be willing to give the representative the time of day. His/her comments were dissected to see if s/he had made any false or misleading statements; fortunately, s/he did not.

    What is the Problem?

    Could HostNine be over extended? Is this just a run of bad luck or is something really wrong with support? The majority of web hosts are honest and keep thousands of people in work. It is not in the interest of anybody in the industry for any web host to be maligned and lose business. But if there is a high level of complaints about service, it is the task of peer reviewers to bring these complaints to light and examine them.

    It kind of hurts me to write all the things that have been said about HostNine because I know that every bad review is bad for business (and I own a reseller service myself). Nonetheless, I am reviewing web hosts and this one just had very little going for it.

    In the next part, we will look at Hostgator, Go Daddy, and a few other web hosts. Thanks for reading.
