I am currently in a meeting trying to present an online courseware running on a clients website...pixelphish.com.  I have contacted Hostony in the past 2 weeks plenty of times to resolve timeout issues, no connections to database and websites completly failing to resolve.  There has been no effort to move users which I share space with who are bandwidth hogs.  Hostony has admitted to users on my server crashing the computer...in fact the tech support guy that told me this no longer even works for Hostony! In any case turn elsewhere for your hosting needs! matrixreseller.com...srlhosting.com...great ones!

It sure sucks. No email was sent telling me my login id and password, so once you forget them (and you will) you cant log back in. There's hardly any way to contact them. What a shame and crime for these webhosts-comparing websites who put hostony and other stinky webhosts at top just because they pay commission.

The people here are nothing but crybabies.  Hostony has hosted me for well over a year without a single problem ever.  They have been supportive and friendly every step of the way.  It's an excellent host, you should have no fears.

I just signed up with Hostony today.  So far, I've been impressed with the support offered.  I had a chat with a rep over ICQ! Nice.
