Both a very good and sometimes bad hosting service.
I used to run a blog with Godaddy hosting service until I received a DMCA takedown over a photo of a celebrity I took with my camera and my whole site was removed. When I explained to Godaddy staff and legal that the image originated from my camera and had metadata proof, their response was, "We do not care for merit of claims, we only obey DMCA, no matter what". Onward to 1984 Hosting, based in Iceland, where they do not blindly follow DMCA takedown "no matter what". That there is some additional vetting of claims instead of mindless obedience. While the price is higher than conventional providers, I got a pretty good value and could register as many domains, have as many email accounts and open as many sites as I liked. The user interface is pretty easy and when stuck, the staff helps out. All was great for several years and I told as many people as I could, to use, 1984 Hosting. There were even times when 1984 staff went out of their way to help me with some issues I struggle with as a beginner web dev. This was the early years as a client. Things became stressful (and left) when some of their staff informed me I was violating 1984 terms and conditions by hosting sites from other people. This is nothing new that staff was aware of. As a beginner web dev, and in school at the time, I was developing sites for non tech-savvy senior citizens who ran old-school camera shops or helping out bands with a website. These are small time sites with tiny traffic (100 visits a week). I was the main admin in all cases. I sent emails to the head of 1984 Hosting to explain what happened and there are indicators on the site that show how little traffic I have. I wish I had sites that brought crazy traffic, overloaded their servers and was developing/hosting Brian Eno's website. I am just a shitty dev working on being less shitty. Management responded and the warnings and threats of account termination continued. Another issue, complaints from people trying to send emails to me and they forwarded error maeesages. 1984 Staff told me that the other party configured their emails wrong and that their email hosting needs to be fixed. These are Gmail and Hotmail senders. So this means I need to ring up Google and Microsoft and explain they need to reconfigure their servers to accommodate 1984 Hosting. This was also recent. Here is what I think happened at 1984; after I signed on, they went through a growth phase and hired a bunch of people and new staff are clueless and management at 1984 Hosting have too many clients to worry about tiny little ones like me. When I went to other hosting providers, I noticed my service was much faster at the new place. At the time, 1984 was a bit slower and I left before they adopted SSD's. Maybe 1984 Hosting is better now and the newer staff has more comprehension...or not. I had good years with 1984 Hosting, but perhaps they are adopting a more stringent model to take on larger clients and little fish like me do not matter.
Hi Kaiser, Thank you for the thorough review. We want to address a couple of things.
1. The Shared Hosting package has no arbitrary limit on the number of sites hosted. We do not, however, allow for third party usage of hosting. In other words, you can use your hosting package for your own sites, not for other people's sites. We think that is fair.
2. All new hosting is not run on mirrored NVMe SSD storage.
3. We are totally focused on smaller customers. We cater to them almost exclusively. We have never had any emphasis on acquiring customers of the large persuasion.
"We do not, however, allow for third party usage of hosting. In other words, you can use your hosting package for your own sites, not for other people's sites." I spoke with management about this very point on more than one occasion. They said it was fine. So we clearly have a scenario where the left hand does not know what the right hand is doing. This does not bode well for the user. Further, if you have a web dev student running sites with little-to-no traffic as s/he cultivates skill, it really is a non-issue. If I am running media sites getting crazy traffic, you have a point. But this is absurd.
За простоту ребятам большой плюс. Никаких лишних кнопок. Поддерживают оплату по bitcoin, никакой информации вводить не надо (если так хочеться). Выбор разных сборок ОС. Я лично пользуюсь Parabola, с ядром linux-libre. Сайты, боты работают стабильно, бд без проблем, на DDOS надеюсь не придется проверять) Конечно же, считаю плюсом физическое расположение серверов в Исландии.
