Spacenets.com is my Third host review of 4 hosts for February 2011 webhostingstuff.com’s top 25. Zero reviews with webhostinstuff.com had me asking one question, which was how long had this host been active. Some hosts that I have reviewed with zero reviews had been online for more then 10 years. But since November 2010 I have found hosts that just started up. This is one of those hosts. Webhostinstuff.com indicates that this host has been monitored since January 19, 2011. I found this host on webhostingstuff’s top 25 at the beginning of the month. So less then 30 days they some how managed to be a top host.
This host is so new that complete.com has no data for them.
About the only place I can find any information about this new host is websitefigures.com.
Spacenets.com was formerly Hostm2.com
When I look at the “Why us?”, I find what amounts to a filler of an answer as to why. Yet priority number one seems to be privacy. I have found only a few hosts that may actually give out their customers information. What Endurance Group International does, is not technically selling customer information. Even though those customers are part of an appeal to another form of customers. They use their hosting customers as a source to advertise to, hence why they like buying out other companies to increase their audience.
The support spill they give is nothing special, it pretty much what most hosts offer. For that matter thats about the same as what godaddy offers. Though with Godaddy you can actually call them to speed things up.
The “About Us…” part leads to hostm2, but their not clear on the domain. I guessed right when I guessed it was a .com because the whois tells me that domain is pointing to this host.
Domain Name: HOSTM2.COM Registrar: GODADDY.COM, INC. Whois Server: whois.godaddy.com Referral URL: http://registrar.godaddy.com Name Server: NS1.SPACENETS.COM Name Server: NS2.SPACENETS.COM Status: clientDeleteProhibited Status: clientRenewProhibited Status: clientTransferProhibited Status: clientUpdateProhibited Updated Date: 07-feb-2011 Creation Date: 23-sep-2008 Expiration Date: 30-sep-2011
I have to wonder if this host will make the mistake in letting their domain go, or will they keep it active so that any customers familar with them under this name will find them.
I find no mention of this host with webhostingstuff.com. But there is this handy little uptime report
The Spacenets.com affiliate program
At this time the Affiliate program appears to be in the works. There is no agreement to read. But from what I can see This almost seems like a copy of many of the hosts out there that are in the so called “top” ten lists. Payouts of $75 per payout, and V.I.P section thats not upfront about what you get if you get more then 10 sales a month. I would suggest avoiding being a direct affiliate and go with Commission Junction or cj.com, where you have someone that will ensure you get paid.

There is more in the terms of service, which I recommend reading before signing up for service with this company.
