I have just moved hosts and I thought I'd share my experience.

I was looking everywhere for a decent cheap "unlimited" cloud host however I soon found out that "unlimited" as they state has got limits in the small print HOWEVER I found Hosting Zoom

The ONLY limits with these guys are 500GB Bandwidth and 50GB Disk Space which I can't really see as a limit as this is PLENTY!! They migrated both my sites over from the old host for FREE with no downtime not too mention I got a FREE domain that will auto renew yearly for FREE as long as I stay with them and the hosting plan.

The thing I loved the most was the live support, very hard if customer service does not have a clue but these guys were Pro's! Every question I had got an accurate and fast response! :)

If you think of moving to another host then I will definitely recommend these guys! See my signature for the link :)

Yes they allow adult websites. 1 of mine is adult and the free domain name for life that they gave me is also an adult domain as I'll be starting up another site soon :)

The ONLY limits is 500GB Bandwidth and 50GB Disk Space which is not really a limit as already stated :)

This is on the Cloud Hosting!

Thank you if you are going to use my affiliate link, much appreciated :)

There won't be downtime!!! It is cloud hosting :) 100% uptime, even in the event of multiple hardware failures!!!

If you are on ordinary hosting then yes as they always claim to have 99.9% up time however Cloud Hosting is different and especially with these guys as your website is spread across 50 servers and hundreds of disks in various arrays. If it ain't 100% as they claim then obviously I would be first in the cue to get my money back :)

There you have it! :)

Clayton T. Hey Dan welcome back to the chat.

dan. Just a quick question...how 100% is 100% up time when it comes to your cloud hosting?

Clayton T. With the Cloud solutions, they do offer some of the best redundancy for websites, so the service does face 100% uptime month to month. It utilizes multiple servers in a large cloud so if there's ever a problem, the sites load from a different server within the cloud.

We do have the 100% uptime guarantee as well, so if there's ever any issues with uptime, we do provide credit for that time experienced.

Hi Guys,

As stated, I will keep this thread honest but what I really don't need to hear is "I told you so" as a few of you have already done via PM...lol :)

YES, my sites were down today for about an hour. I did question this and as always their live support was totally ready to answer my questions. Apparently the Atlanta datacenter did face a network issue that rendered many services unavailable at the location and it was not specific to a certain server or group.

They were very apologetic and immediately offered me compensation which I denied as an apology was good enough for me :) "If the network is out for 1 hour, we will credit you 10 hours of downtime. In this instance we divide your monthly payment by days of the month, divided by 24hrs a day to find an hour rate. That amount will be credited to your account towards your next invoice."

If this does ever happen again I will sure take them up on their offer however I was happy enough with the fast response and the professional manner that it was dealt with :)

I'm still happy! :)

Delta i don?t want to be a jackass and say that i told you but lets be honest... Saying that you offer 100% uptime to any website is a marketing trick...

However i am still verry impressed that they offer a compensation for only one hour of downtime... For example hostgator was down for 1-2 days :)) one time and one time for 5 hours+ and afther that they post some lame explication/excuse on fb/blog.
And like this is not enough.. Some times my sites load so slow that i can.t even connect ti them.

I still like how your sites load so i will defenetly give theme a chance.

1 hour of downtime is nothing at all, thats even better then most that offer 99.7% do in most cases, inculding Hostgator (who btw i will never use again)

I had big problem with hostgator too, so I decide to stop working with them and I'll try to find some other good hosting.

Forgive me Father for I have sinned, it has been 4000 days since my last confession… I have led my fellow forum members to follow me into the darkness and although Saint “Mystical” has forewarn me via PM the day I started this thread I still chose to follow the path of evil! I was blinded by good service and cheap prices but my eyes are now open and I can clearly see the correct path! PLEASEEEEEEEEE have mercy on my soul?

LONG STORY SHORT –

Since I reported downtime on my sites yesterday it went down another 2 times after that. To top my day off I received a PM from “kingkill” stating that he went via their live online support and asked if he’s allowed to have Adult sites on their Cloud hosting package – He was denied! “kingkill” provided me with a screenshot of the live chat he had which proved he got denied. I went via their live online support to question this and as luck would have it I spoke to the same person that kingkill” spoke to.

My question was simple, why did they deny a potential affiliate of mine to sign up to their Cloud Hosting because he has adult websites. The answer was that this would have been fine if it was on VPS and dedicated servers. I replied that mine was fine when I asked and I’m on Cloud Hosting. The reply to that was that I should not be and that maybe I got special permission. A ticket to their management was then opened via the person that I spoke to and guess what????

I received an e-mail from their management some time later asking me to remove my Adult sites from their servers. WTF??? Before I even moved to them from my old host my question was “am I allowed to have adult sites on their Cloud Hosting” – the answer was YES! In fact the free domain name I got in my package that they registered was justpornxxx DOT COM not to mention they even moved my sites from my old host over to them so they KNEW my sites were adult!!!!

They now offered me the change to sign up for VPS at a price of course HOWEVER too much in one day has happened for me to want to accept so I did the next best thing and went back to my old reliable host whom I only left because they weren’t able to offer monthly billing on their packages which they do now so all is GREAT!! I signed up for their Cloud VPS Bronze Package. My sites are on my own server now :)

Lessons learned:

1. Listen to friends when they try and warn you!
2. You truly get what you pay for!
