Our hosting service is already packing some seriously great features, have we missed something or is there any features you would like to see added to our servers.

Safety tips by our technical admin. There are so many nasty critters out there, one can hardly keep up with them. Would be nice if there is a special sub-forum where the technical admin could put up periodic security notices. He may be able to see things happening that we can't. Or things we should be doing to optimize the safety of our websites and aren't doing.

Going through all the features offered on the packages page, I think you provide some really really great web hosting for a FREE host.

Unlimited disk space and bandwith & cPanel x4 please :) But as "lucaskent" said you offer great features a free web host could give! Thumbs up to gigalicous! :friends:

Unlimited doesn't exist.

I know! :) But seeing the word "unlimited" gives me the relief of not having concern of overflowing my disk space allowance.
Right, but I agree with Sander. It is an illusion. This is how I see it. If you have more than one user sharing the same server (all servers come with a fixed limited space), then it logically means that at some or other point, the more users there are, the "unlimited" space allocations, will have to converge. You won't know when that will be, and the person who promises you "unlimited" won't tell you either. It may happen out of the blue that all the lights go out in your Website. Whereas, if you knew exactly what your space is, i.e. X GB, you should feel more secure in that the owner is not putting one past you, because "limitless" is really a HUGE lie. With a lie like that I'd immediately wonder what else the owner is lying about or covering up.

Well. You guys have a point there! :) So do you guys plan on having x4? :)
 
Something that would be really cool here would be a run down on what software is likely to over-clock the CPU accepted usage and then some ideas on how to keep those sorts of software under control.

So long as attachments are kept under control and the theme images are optimised, bandwidth and web-space need not be a big worry for the site owner, but CPU usage, now that's the site killer and most of us have absolutely no idea the software we may be using is having an abusive drain on the host service.

Just a thought.

From what I seen so far you offer some really good things but what about free upgrades for free hosting acounts, for users how say are still active on the forms after the first 2 months after geting a hosting acount. people like that could get say extra disk space / bandwith if they need it with in serten limits say nomore then a extra 50 gb bandwith and a extra 2 gb disk space max? but only if they using 5 % of there current space and bandwith.

I'm dead curious to know what you would be doing with 5GB space. 1GB is already HUGE. 10GB is more than limitless. How would you be filling up all of that space? :shock:
