My blog and PHILHOSTING.NET are down… AGAIN!

I am tired of the constant downtimes Philhosting.net is serving their clients… Just today, my blog, other customers of Philhosting.net and even their own website of Philhosting.net was down… Downtime started early morning, perhaps 11pm yesterday up to 10am today..

What kind of service is this?

Their tagline, Affordable Solutions for everyone true…

but what about reliability?!

… I need to switch webhosts asap… haha any suggestions?

Starts to backup his files for fear of philhosting.net being a sore loser… Let this be a lesson to everyone, remember that price is not the only factor to consider when choosing a webhostingMy blog and PHILHOSTING.NET are down... AGAIN! icon biggrin

Hey guys, if you have suggestions on a nice webhosting to switch too… please suggest asap.. I want to leave this piece of **** webhosting.. haha

  1. tsk tsk tsk… you’ve named it already! cheers to you! *sipping wine*

  2. You’ll see their lawyers knocking on your door on Monday morning asking you to go with them right before you leave home for your job interview! Wahehehe!.

    I already submitted my support ticket. Hmm… I want GoGaddy! *grin

  3. My recommendation still stands (http://silkenhut.com/blog/2007/09/04/another-blog-downtime/) :)

    Can’t help not naming when you’re all pissed off di ba? :)

  4. marvin’s ok. ;) nice support too.

  5. sorry to hear this mate. the only solution is to move to another hosting. the cheapest is not always the best. try yahoo web hosting

  6. Hehe

    @Eli and Winston – I’ll take it into account in my research for a new webhost.

    @Pinoyunited – Yup, that’s what I need to do for now. haha :D

    The only thing that keeps me from leaving completely is that I still have 4 months left in the 6months that I paid for. haha

  7. Down din website ko for 3 days. Tsk. Same host.

    • Wow! 3 days! I read in JP the eagleman’s post that Philhosting was adding a new server last weekend that’s why there was a downtime. But why did it take 3 days for your blog to get online? hmmm

  8. it’s not worth waiting until that period ends. I must say, viited you a few times before and it’s down. same with pinoyblogero. however pinoy am website seems online most of the time. perhaps you can ask him which hosting he’s on.

    how much did you pay anyway? not that i’ll give you the money he he he.

  9. [...] got an email from my web hosting company today. It made me think of Allen (which I read is down again tsk tsk) and Karlo’s previous hosting provider. I wonder if they [...]

  10. i just got an anonymous comment on my blog…comment was something about me as naninira ng puri……a simple research on the IP recorded was the location was from Makati…i was able to track where it came from….guess what..from the philhosting office..looks like they don’t like being reviewed…i remember giving them a “philhosting sucks” review…it saddens me that they have to retaliate that way when they should just be improving their service..if they get to read this..peace philhosting….a review is something you should not take personally….trabaho lang…if you did your job right…you won’t be getting any comment like that..:)

  11. A brave expose for this hosting company.. BAck up agad baka bigla mawala yung site mos ere.. he he he :)

  12. philhosting.net is still down.. its been 2 days shit! i need to change my host nowi mean it!

  13. @jen You should. You should not bear with that if you are not satisfied. :)

  14. yah. it sucks. it’s good for making cheap static pages. they have a promo now, so maybe get the 25 peso one, get 50% off, you have some cheap website that will at least get crawled by the major search engines.

    still, i’m going to put up my own reseller with another good host from the US, i’ll let you guys know.

    [...] so easy for us to rely on the web hosts’ uptime capability. Unfortunately for us, web hosts aren’t really 99.99% up. It’s so hard to find an excellent web host nowadays. The next thing we know, a friend or [...]

  19. Im also hosted on Philhosting, did you move your site to a new host? And if so, mind if you tell me how your new host is better than philhosting? Im also considering moving my site. Thanks!

    Dominics last blog post..Google in all its languages to say: Google Adsense website down

  20. @Dominic – Hello Dominic, I moved my site to a new host and it is HostGator. Well, so far, my uptime has been excellent compared to when I was in Philhosting. But my main reason for moving was because I ran out of bandwidth in my hosting plan in philhosting and HostGator has a better plan. :)

    Good luck guys.

  24. Decided to switch to local web host?

    http://www.vertito.com

    Visit us today! Thank you

  25. Our site also went down, I really hate it, kasi napakaimportante nung site ko… Gamit pa naman namin sa online tutorials grabe talaga

  26. I’m glad I switched host. @ Tzar, if your website goes down (2-5 hours), expect that your files and database is reverted back to the old content.

  27. i agree with you that if you’re pissed, you can’t help but naming it without hesitation. Just like what I did. http://www.ggkassandra.com/2011/01/oh-well-net-host-review/
