Webhostingstuff- 25 hosts exposed

My blog first started with a review of Webhostingstuff’s top 25 hosts.


As of last week I completed a review of all 25 hosts that pay webhostingstuff for their positioning.  I honestly had hoped to finish before the end of June.  But in the end I found there was a lot more to most of these hosts that I would have imagined.  Some of the most damming details came directly from the staff of the hosting companies.  Some took far deeper digging and rethinking of what to look for as it was not always the same with each host.

I wanted to prove that the hosts were not worthy of being in the top.  Little did I suspect that it was far worse then I first assumed, and perhaps I should have started this blog a lot sooner then when I did.  Even though its becoming growing knowledge that this company that claims:

Unlike some dubious “top 10 hosting sites” I7net that promote web hosts based on affiliate commissions, our fair and honest ranking system helps visitors find the real top web hosting companies.”

The same person that owns webhostingstuff.com, also owns hostaz.com a site that is based on Affiliate Commissions.  The name of the owner is Michael Low a resident of Singapore. Hostaz.com, webhostingstuff.com is based off of paid per rank.  Which is far worse then any top 10 thats based off of affiliate commission.

The summary that comes to mind with webhostingstuff

Some websites were put over night Ioxhost comes to mind

Two of the hosts were owned by the same company: Ipage and Fatcow.  Meaning I need to look further into The Endurance International Group, Inc.

There were a lot of hosts offering over the top affilate payments. ipage, fatcow, hostgator, site5,….. pretty much half the sites I reviewed.  Many whose own affiliates that drowned out negative feed back only to benefit the hosts.

Some are out of date in their design netmar, LFC hosting

Two hosts were not even worth the effort, Mochahost (terrible customer service behavior) and 2GB Hosting (7 day guarantee).

Is there any truth with webhostingstuff?

The one thing that I am almost certain they do not modify is the uptime monitoring.  With cloud.bg and i7net.net (not an actually May 2010 host, but June 2010),  Uptime which should have been a factor in rather a host belonged in thetop 25 position.   But even the uptime is suspect, as the hosts that had bad uptime are were lower levels of the top 25.  Perhaps future monitoring of their top 25 will tell me more.

Why do people still trust webhostingstuff?

This is almost like arguing with my mother, often when it comes to an argument such as gender is determined by the male of our species (go Y chromosome), she will quote some one she found on the internet as evidence that I am wrong.   Some reason those sayings my grandmother, her mother did not come to mind to her.  Buyer Beware, You get what you pay for, there is a sucker born every minute.  I guess you could say the pearls of wisdom jumped a generation.  But there are those out there that think of search engines as fact finders.  That is what webhostingstuff is counting on, and they think a few claims of being fair and honest are supposed to make up for the lack of truth.  But this is from the same company whose own interguity page:


They claim:

To build a fair and honest ranking system, ranking is always performed automatically by the system – free of human interference.

However just below that is the very sentence that tears apart that very statement:

Human editors are also needed to maintain the high level of integrity of our trusted reviews. Webmasters and system administrators are needed for the smooth running of this large site.

No matter what I do there will always be someone that trusts webhostingstuff regardless of what they do.  Needless to say I am not done, every new host that signs on to webhostingstuff is subject to my review.

ThePrimeHost, is theprimehost.com a flip flop?

ThePrimeHost,  number 25 of 25 for Webhostingstuff.com’s  May 2010 list and the finale host to review from this  list.  At this time they are no longer in the top 25 list.  The design of the site is fairly modern, but it seems cluttered.  There are too many graphics grabbing my attention.  What sticks out at first glance of their site is “Now hosting over 15,000 websites since 2001”.  That in my opinion is an honest statement.  But it leaves a lot of details out.  Is that total from 2001 to today, or is it current amount hosted?  15,000 websites is not 15,000 customers.  They after all offer reseller hosting.   Meaning they could have customers that have 1  or far more websites.  Ultimately the number of sites hosted is irrelevant compared to the number of customers.

ThePrimeHost where to start?

Looking through the site I find a lot of quirks.  There are lot of parts of the site that would make my business partner (the one in charge of every bit of sales text be it email or web sites) cringe.  The order form is drawn out through several pages, I often wonder if too many pages can detour someone from signing up for service.  Then any search engine results I  find have lots of positive reviews, yet there are people out there that claim that the reviews are fake.  Then there is an affiliate program thats disabled.

ThePrimeHost affiliate program

The affiliate system is very similar to those of hostgator, ipage, fatcow, bluehost, and others of its like where there is high payouts.  But for some reason they are stuck at 11,000 sites.  I find it odd that they are so far behind when they are older then many of those hosts that use this insane concept.  It works for these large scale “unlimited” hosts because they have ways of getting out of payments, and not everyone finds a host through their affiliates.   But it drives affiliates to promote the site for what in the end will be a big payout.  Not to mention the more pages that mention your url the better it works for a sites search engine results.   The essential problem with the hosting review industry is that people are promoting the high payouts as the best host regardless if they are not the best.   I tend to think that its no coincidence that they are no longer on Webhostingstuff’s top 25,  while ThePrimeHost’s affiliate sign ups have been disabled.

In regards to the term “Make Bank”, I think the urban dictionaries second defintion works out for this.


to extract as much money as possiable from a player at the poker table.

I slow played the nut flush cause I knew I would make bank on the river.

It appears they only tried one Google ad campaign:


I can tell you that it takes more then one month to make Google Ads payout.

ThePrimeHost reviews

Here is my problem with the reviews, first the below image is the reviews on their own site:

This is from their site: http://theprimehost.com/customertestimonials.html

The one thing I notice is there is only one website listed- mdpillstore.com, and the domain is expired.  Then there is a anonymous review.  I had one company where we asked for reviews, we required a first name and their website.  The encouragement was that they could get traffic from our site (afterwards the reviews came flying in).   The lack of websites from the reviews has me wondering if the people claiming “the postive ThePrimeHost reviews are false” may very well be right.

Finale Thoughts on ThePrimeHost

This is another host that while having some years in their belt, they haven’t quite figured out how to get their word out there.  They try one month of Google Adwords, and then stop.  They try webhostingstuff.com, despite the growing public knowledge that this review site is a scam, and quit.  They try what their bigger competitors do unethically and then suspend access to their affiliate program.   11,000 sites is not a lot, especially since they are running a reseller program.  While ThePrimeHost has been around a while they have not learned a sure fire method for bringing in and keeping customers.

LFC Hosting, is lfchosting.com and outdated host?

LFC Hosting is number 23 of 25 for Webhostingstuff.com’s  May 2010 list.   As of today, their site is no longer on the top 25 list.   The domain was created in May 31, 1998.  I have to wonder if the design is the original that it had started with.  As much as it may seem pointless to bring up the design, I feel that the design is a sign of how much a company progresses.   I know not every host has their own design team, my own sites went through at least three changes a year.  Not to mention there were changes according to sales events, seasons, and holidays.  We were probable a little too excessive in our changes.  But things like Front Page extensions disappeared from offerings at least 5 years ago.  Things such as WordPress were taking center stage as their popularity advanced.  Clearly LFC Hosting site  is not up-to-date, and you have to wonder are the staff ready for todays hosting needs?     LFC Hosting seems stuck in the past, and I am willing to bet that this site design is at best 7 years old.

So what makes me think LFC Hosting site design has not updated since 2003?

From LFC Hosting main page I click on “Products and Services”, then click on “Hosting” It brings me to this long unnecessary sales spill about their use of Window 2003.  Here is the part that stuck out to me:

Although we run Windows 2003 in the foreground, over half of our networkis actually Linux. Windows 2003/IIS 6.0 servers are employed in theforeground to ensure optimal performance and stability of Windows capabilities (which typically only work well under Windows), as well as anincreased level of security over a single platform. Then, “redirectors”, router “port forwarding” and proprietary LFC technology “forward” all requests for Linux-specific technologies (ex: MySQL 5 databases) to the appropriate Linux server clusters in the background!

I have no idea what any of that means, perhaps because I am not a server tech (I started this business as a webdesigner so I am more of a graphics person). This pretty much looks like jibberish, and I would never have allowed a page like this to preceded access to the order form. I am also no expert on Windows hosting.  Most of my operations involved cPanel, Plesk, and bare bones Linux.  My preference is Plesk, while not user friendly it is far more stable then cPanel.  So I had to ask a friend that deals with Windows, and he tells me that 2003 is outdated and not supported by Microsoft, 2008 is the current version.  Which I had a feeling 2003 was outdated  as 7 years seems along time for software to last unless its with my parents or a video game.

Is LFC Hosting a stagnant host?

I think the answer to that is yes, while I am not sure how reliable Web-hosting-top.com is, but comparing Hostgator to LFC Hosting I see a huge difference between them.   Host Gator shows no lose in sites but rather gains, where as as LFC Hosting shows points where it was bleeding out sites.  It appears they have no more then 7000 domains.  Which tells me they have don’t have many customers.


compare to:


A attempted chat with LFC Hosting

Unfortunately as you can see no luck, instead I got the following:

No one was available when I tried to chat

Finale thoughts on LFC Hosting

The thought that goes through my head every time I form a business is that most die off before they reach their 5th year. LFC Hosting appears to be a site that has done just that, but only just barely.  It clings to life, even though it refuses to adapt to the market.   I have to wonder how long a host such as this can keep on going, and I will definatly have my eye on it.  Hopefully this post can encourage them to do something.   LFC Hosting should have used the money they used to get in Webhostingstuff”s top 25 for a new design.

Steadfast Networks, will steadfast.net be a stable solution?

Steadfast Networks, number 22 of 25 for Webhostingstuff.com’s  May 2010 list.   I can’t say I like the design for this site as I am not sure it fits on the standard monitor.   When it comes to designing websites, I have always operated under the assumption that you want a site to fit left to right on the smallest common monitor.  I can’t minimize the browser on this site without parts of the right side of the site disappearing.

Is there dirt on Steadfast Networks?

There is not alot of dirt, for that matter I can not find much out about NoZone, Inc, let alone Steadfast Networks.  The review sites are out there.  But some have no reviews while others only have a few.

How old is Steadfast Networks?

By there own ommision:

Steadfast Networks is a fully owned subsidiary of NoZone, Inc., which was founded in August of 1998 by Karl Zimmerman and incorporated in the state of Wisconsin on October 18, 2000.


Regardless of when NoZone, Inc was founded. When was steadfast.net created?

Is Steadfast Networks a green host?

Same old, same old.  There is nothing unique about their being green.  Its just more greenwashing.    They recycle “paper and cans”, they reuse parts.  But what about when the machines are no longer useful: We either find additional uses for them internally, strip them to re-use the parts individually, or donate them to charitable use. If you are aware of any charitable causes looking to take older computer hardware please contact us, as we’re always looking for more partners. They buy their carbon offsets from carbonfund.org.

Hostingsthatsuck says Steadfast Networks does not suck

It should be no surprise that Hostingsthatsucks (whom rarely profiles a host that sucks), thinks  that Steadfast.net does not suck.  Every site that I have reviewed on their listings have affiliate links, so its really not in their interests to look for dirt.  They claim to have only found three actually complaints about Steadfast Networks

Finale thoughts on Steadfast Networks

Frankly there is not enough info out there for Steadfast Networks.  In comparison with other companies that have been open for 2 – 4 years there are not a lot of relevant search engine results.

How to write host reviews to achieve the maximum effect be it positive or negative

While in the progress of working on the 21st host of May 2010, I start with looking at host reviews.   I happen to find a review about Scalahosting.com on webhostingtalk.com, He claims it sucks and its fraud.  I decided to ask for what no one else was asking for.  That was documentation (chat sessions, email, support tickets).  Instead the moderator wanted to wait for the host to chime in, which it never did.     What I did not notice was the reviewer’s access was suspended.  No reason was given.   The post was soon locked out.    But clearly everyone but the reviewer was playing advocate for Scalahosting.com.

I have a problem with this because no reason was given for suspending the access of the poster, and some one who did not work for the host some how knew the situation.  Even though his information on the situation was limited at best.  But I think he could have gotten his point through on the first post before they locked him out.

So many Host Reviews, so little to work with

Over the last few months I have read a lot of reviews.  Most of the comments I read through I did not bother to use, even though they were leaning towards my desired goal.  Obviously I was  looking for negative feed back.  One end of the spectrum someone would say a site sucked and provide little to back it up.   Then there were people that would tell you they just signed up with a host and it was great,  frankly I think they needed to wait till the end of the guarantee before commenting.    Rarely have I found reviews on either side of the spectrum that got my attention.    But here is my idea of what would be hard to avoid and get your point across, even if they decide to suspend your access.

What I recommend not doing when writing host reviews

For Negative host reviews

  • Don’t go anonymous, you will get more mileage out of your review if you disclose what site was involved with the host you are complaing about.
  • Don’t get an user id called (host name) sucks, (host name) fraud, (host name) anything.  Doing so just makes you look like your out for revenge and may just a be a disgruntle customer.
  • Avoid using vulgar language.
  • Avoid using the words scam and/or fraud.   Most times what people label as a scam or fraud were covered under the terms of service.   Like shutting your site down.   I think this was the reason the above poster had his access shut off.

For Positive Host Reviews

  • Don’t go anonymous, you will get more mileage out of your review if you disclose what site was involved with the host you are complaing about.  Yes its a repeat, but that does not make it any less effective.
  • Avoid writing host reviews until your guarantee period expires, depending on the host its usually 30 days.   Things could go wrong and you may have a hard time removing your endorsement from the site you put it on.

What has to be in the host reviews

Being a vegan, it might be weird for me to say but make sure there is some meat to you review.  Simple saying “x host” sucks, or” x host” is great is not much to a review.  For that matter they tell people nothing as to why or why not they should buy hosting.

For Negative host reviews

If you have a complaint provide copies of the email, chat, or ticket.   This is why I hate dealing with people by phone, unlike the other methods unless I record the call there is not much proof with phone conversations.   Its harded to be discredited if you have documentation to back your complaints.  If there is alot of documentation consider hosting it on your site and provide links to it.

For Positive host reviews

Give the reasons for why you choose this company.  Perhaps you joined them because of a control panel like Plesk.  Simple saying that the company has great support with out examples is just like saying “its a deal, just trust me”.

By no means is this a complete concept, but its what I see missing  in reviews.  Written properly your host reviews will be worth the effort be they positive or negative.

Another Moment of YouTube comments disclosure

Today I got the following comment:

SERIOUSLY!! Don’t be deceived by this youtube video. The guy that posted this is doing the same thing. He is advertising on his website blog. He wants you to visit his site so you will click on his ads and give him money. These web hosting reviews are not doing anything wrong. They are affiliates for these companies. Many of them are very legit some are not. Nice Try with this video but you are trying to do the same thing…DECEIVE!


Here is my response


Nice try but no cigar

I disclose the fact that I put adds on my blog, as well as that I will be making money to put back in to it. I do not have the resources to compete with hosting industry. Because frankly this site needs a bigger server, and I am not rich man. But your more then welcome to play devils advocate for the hosting industry. You might also want to bring a violin for the banking industry I hear they need someone to stick up for them to.

Also you do realize I get to approve comments before they even get posted?


First of all I have not endorsed anyone, unless you called my post on GoDaddy an endorsement, I recommended them for starting up a site, but not for a serious website.   At this point I have gotten zero clicks on the GoDaddy banners.   I freely admit I am not a good sale agent, and I proable could have done a better job of getting people to click if I left out my history of server outages and slow response servers.  But that would not be honest, and I am sure someone would have called me out on a post that had nothing but positive reviews.    I also  have declared several times over the  many emails that I have gotten that there  is NOT a host I am willing to put my name behind at this time.  That does not mean I am putting my name up for sale either.  I also have three more hosts that I am using to review and over 25 that I have used.   Honestly if I found a better host then any of the ones I am currently using or have used I would probable move everything I have to one host.  But at this time each host that I have been with have some serious flaws.  But the ones that I have reviewed out of webhostingstuff.com’s top 25 list,  have paid for fake positioning.    At this point I have not really gone after the affiliates, though the first one I will go after is hostaz.com, owned by Michael Low who also owns webhostingstuff.com.

Yes I have advertising up.  I have also been screening my google ads to make sure certain sites don’t show up.  I also look into the companies that show up.     I put the advertising up so I can afford better a better server for this site.  I am not about to ask for donations, because frankly along with being a bad sales agent I am also a bad accountant.   Since November 2007, this site has been paid for out of my pocket.  The only help that I have received was word of mouth.  I greatly appreciate that.

Billybrask, your welcome to comment on my blog.  But I challenge you to actually read my posts.  I am going to assume the first thing you did is come to my site and saw ads and decided to judge me.  The last site I dealt with had faked their awards.  http://hosting-reviews-exposed.com/hosts-that-use-exposed-reviews/indichost-will-indichosts-net-be-an-awarding-hosting-solution-for-you.html

Indichost – Will Indichosts.net be an awarding hosting solution for you?

At number 20 out of 25 from Webhostingstuff’s May 2010 list we come to Indichosts.

Starting at $1 a month you can get hosting from Indichosts,  order now

This graphic on their main page  is the first thing that sticks out to me when I visit their site.   I clicked on it because I wanted to see how many years it took to get $1 a month.  The problem is the order now button takes you to a plan thats closer to $10 a month under a three year term.   There is no option to pick another plan.  You have to click on the tabs below the penguin to find a plan thats  “at $1 a month” .

Where the heck is Indichosts terms of service?

One of the things I have done with almost every host is read the terms of service.  You simply can not find it from the main page.  I tend to wonder if their credit card processor bothered to look at the site.  Because every merchant I have gone through looks for that.  Its never been my experience that PayPal looks, you think they would in order to add that sense of being a more authentic website your doing business with.     In order to find the terms of service, you have to go through the order form and at the point you enter your credit card you get do you agree with the terms of service check.


I am not sure who looks under the about page to find terms of service.   But obscure terms of service and not so clear order now to get hosting at $1 a month is not the most interesting thing about this site.

Indichosts Testimonials, Feedback, and “awards”


On this page I find no feed back, for that matter I find nothing but praise.   I imagine any negative feed back is deleted as opposed to a page that would lead people to believe there is nothing wrong with this host.   There are people that are complaining about this company.

Indichosts Webhost Directory award

Indichosts does not actually have an award with Webhostdir.com.  Granted some day I want to see what it takes to get an award with this company.  Though Webhostdir, does not allow for negative feed back that I can see.  Webhostdir.com is defiantly on my back burner for a later date.

Indichosts websitegrader.com award

Would it surprise you to know I too have an award with Websitegrader.com?

My Website grade is:
The Website Grade for hosting-reviews-exposed.com!

I don’t think Indichosts is using the actual code like I have done.   Right now they actually have a 97 instead of a 96.   But here is the thing about Web Site Grader, it has nothing to do with how good sites service is.  Unlike fake review sites websitegrader.com is a site that tells you how you are doing in regards to search engine ranking.  They get their money by telling you how to do better.   I actually plugged a few of my own sites in and I have found several sites that need improvement.  I may very well try websitegrader out later


Finale Thoughts on Indichosts

There is alot of faking going on with Indichosts.   For one they claim to be around for 7 years.  But the whois information says that the domain indichosts.net was created back in 2005:

Domain Whois record

Queried whois.internic.net with “dom indichosts.net”…

   Domain Name: INDICHOSTS.NET
   Whois Server: whois.PublicDomainRegistry.com
   Referral URL: http://www.PublicDomainRegistry.com
   Updated Date: 24-mar-2010
   Creation Date: 27-feb-2005
   Expiration Date: 27-feb-2013

On top of that they are using webhostingstuff.com, but for some reason Indichosts does not bother to use the award they paid for amongst the award they did not win and the award that anyone can get.   Hosting with Indichosts would be a gamble in my opinion.

iWeb Technologies Inc – If you host with iWeb.com will your email get through?

number 19 for May 2010 webhostingstuff is iWeb Technologies Inc.  Despite the massive amount of complaints I can find in regards to iWeb Technologies Inc they have moved from 19 to 15.  The first thing that comes to mind is iPad, iPod, and iMac.  But this site has nothing to do with with Apple.

Webhostingstuff.com’s ratings for iWeb Technologies

Despite averaging all 9 reviews I get the following rating from webhostingstuff.com:

Uptime and Reliability 4.22 out of 5
Technical Support 2.44 out of 5
Customer Service 2.56 out of 5

For some reason a 3 out of 5 star rating is enough to move from the 19th to 15th position.

How old is iWeb Technologies Inc?

This graphic sticks out:

Here is what iWeb Technologies Inc / iweb.com’s domain whois tells me:

   Updated Date: 23-oct-2009
   Creation Date: 29-mar-1999

The creation date does not match the “since” year

iWeb Technologies Inc Awards

iWeb Technologies is another company that has an awards page with the review.  Like some of the hosts I have reviewed there is not link to the companies where they got the awards.


iWeb Technologies Inc, ca.tophost.com award

So far the only thing I can find on ca.tophost.com that leads to an award is something about 8th place


iWeb.com’s Web Hosting Magazine award

A pharagraph does not really sum up why they deserve an award in 2005


iWeb.com’s Webhosting Directories award

In a previous post I had explained that webhostdir.com had given an a review with out This review site never explains why someone gets an award.  For that matter I don’t see feed back from the people whose opinion matters, the customers.


My finale thoughts on iWeb Technologies Inc

When I do search for iWeb, I see a a lot of complaints.  But some of those complaints seem to be written by the same person.  Perhaps there are a lot of people with bad grammar / bad typing.  But one of the biggest complaints I see are in regards to spam, phishing, and spyware.  One example is:


At this time they have a 2 complaints with Spamhaus, the place they mention having an award with:

Found 2 SBL listings for IPs under the responsibility of iweb.com

SBL94865 iweb.com

13-Aug-2010 13:33 GMT
Snowshoe Spam Hosting (smtpd.brwmkt.com)
SBL94864 iweb.com

13-Aug-2010 13:25 GMT
Suspected Snowshoe Spam Range (EWMKT)

Chances are if you host with iWeb Technologies Inc, your email probable will not reach other networks.

Cloud.bg – is Cloud bg an International host of mystery?

8 more hosts to go with my May 2010 webhostingstuff list, which brings me to Cloud bg.  Cloud bg is a bit of an oddity out of all the webhostingstuff.com sites.  I say that because unlike the other 17 hosting companies, this company does not list the U.S. dollar (well it has a limited list).  The only site close to them is Ioxhost.uk.co, but they are an English company.  However unlike Cloud bg,  Ioxhost.uk.com has a web site for for the U.S.  I tend to think that Canada gets over looked in this market after all while they may be an English country, their currency does not have the same value as  the U.S. Dollar or the U.K. Pound.  Clearly their link with webhostinstuff.com was meant to target an English audiance as their link is http://www.cloud.bg/en/ .  When you go directly to http://www.cloud.bg, it  takes you to site in Bulgarian.  You have to click on the British Flag in order to get the site translated for you in English.

How long has Cloud bg been around?

Its a bit unclear, and frankly I don’t know how bg domains are handled.    After all you don’t see an approval date on. dot com’s.

Webhostingstuff.com has no idea how long Cloud bg has been around either:

Site Established: Unknown
Traffic Popularity: #909 of 10,291 companies

Despite dropping from 18 to 20, they have a traffic popularity of 909.

DOMAIN NAME: cloud.bg

processed from: 13/04/2009

If I am reading this correctly it appears the domain was created on April 21, 2010.    Not exactly a veteran company. This post might shed more light as to how long they have been around:


Cloud bg’s reviews on Webhostingstuff

What I find unique about Cloud Bg’s two reviews is the dates.

Cloud.Bg is the best solution! (Excellent)
– by Yulian (every.bg) on 19 May 2010

Cloud.bg – the best web hosting provider (Excellent)
– by Miroslav (mvvitanov.com) on 18 May 2010

What are the chances of only having two reviews just a day apart?

Does Cloud bg host every.bg?

No, despite having issues of trying to look at the who is info for this domain  I am able to look at the network info and I get the following:

netname:        SUPERHOSTINGBG
descr:          SuperHosting.BG Ltd
I can't confirm that they were ever with them, of if they recently changed their dns.

I wonder what the chances are of one review coming in one day after another.

Does Cloud bg host mvvitanov.com?

Yes, Cloud bg does host mvvitanov.com.  However the domain was registered this year.

There are two things I gather from this.  Its possible that Cloud bg has only been active as of February of this year, or they were not added to webhostingstuff.com until they started bidding for positioning in the top 25 spot.    That and perhaps every.bg is no longer hosting with Cloud bg because of this large amount of down time in May (26 hours)  and July (121 hours or 5 days of down time).    But last I checked every.bg is a single page website with what appears to be a under construction page / place holder (sorry I can not read Bulgarian).    The only post I can find in relation to any down time is:


From the sound of it, you would think they were down only three hours.

With in this post I find a link to the announcements, and I find three posts in July in regards to downtime.




But nothing in these announcements explains away the 7,249 minutes of downtime for July 2010 that webhostingstuff.com lists.  There is nothing at least in English that explains away what happen in May.

The Cloud bg affiliate program

When I look at their twitter and Facebook feeds:



I get the impression that they are paying out $152.50 per sale.

But you have to read in full http://www.cloud.bg/en/blog/cloud-affiliate-program-now-you-earn-more, to realize that its not every sale, and this depends on if the person actually signs up for the year.  I have no problem with them going from 18% to 20% on affiliate commissions.   But the tweet and Facebook update give an impression of fees of the other companies on the top 25 of webhostingstuff.com.

Finale thoughts on Cloud bg

Reading through their website I can tell that English is not their first language.  I know I am not one to talk as I don’t exactly go through my blog with a fine tooth comb, often I find myself coming in to correct what I put up.  But I am not trying to sell a service.  I have never been the person to put up sales material online.    There are a lot of details that bother me about Cloud bg, granted not as much as some of the others.
