i use www.montecarlohosting.net
as well! its great!
i know this is a late reply to the thread... but i think my word is important
support is great! if i have just about any issue.. christian "owner of mch" can help me with it
prices. sure... a little higher than an "average" host. but mch isnt a average host
as he has said "the hand holding is included in the prices"
his servers seem to be setup specially to run smf forums they run flawlessly
and the best thing i can tell you is...
Short Downtime 2006-05-02
This morning, from 6:51 AM, to 6:55 AM we experienced a short outage, due to a MySQL upgrade. However, everything is now back to normal. Thankyou for your Patience.
Short Outage 2006-03-24
We regret to inform you, that the server went down for approximately 13 minutes earlier this evening, due to an un-scheduled server update. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. Regards, MonteCarloHosting Staff
those are the only 2 downtimes the sever i am on has had besides the reboot the server does every once in a while.. "usually 1-3 months apart"
and i have been with mch since 2006-02-19!!! thats like.. maybe 40 minutes of downtime in a year? "including reboots"
i havent really experinced any slowdowns either! only thing keeping the page from loading faster is well.. my download speeds
so bottom line...
mch has had perfect customer service for me.
near perfect uptime over a span of almost a year.
pages always load fast for me
even has msn support... (i prefer)
compare to another host..
2-3$ a month cheaper?
sloppy support "usually playing email/ticket tag"
low quality servers that are unreliable
usually no chat client support...
so when it comes down to it. mch is way ahead of other hosts. i believe you and anyone else needing hosting would be better off using mch!
i hope you enjoyed my post
