I7NET.NET, webhostingstuff number 25 host of June 2010

I am in the middle of doing a sheet with a comparison of the new 25 for June 2010. The problem is I7net.net.

First of all lets look at the whois:

Queried whois.internic.net with “dom i7net.net”…

Domain Name: I7NET.NET


Whois Server: whois.melbourneit.com

Referral URL: http://www.melbourneit.com

Name Server: NS1.DNSEXIT.COM

Name Server: NS2.DNSEXIT.COM

Name Server: NS3.DNSEXIT.COM

Name Server: NS4.DNSEXIT.COM

Status: ok

Updated Date: 30-mar-2009

Creation Date: 30-mar-2009

Expiration Date: 30-mar-2014

So it’s a little over a year old. But that’s not the most damming thing.

72.62 % uptime / zero reviews.

Due to being blocked once again by webhostingstuff.com, I have had to engage friends in getting me screen shots to show this unbelievable mess.  I believe the blocks are caused by how much snooping I do on their site now, as I did not go to their advertising page.  However to keep me out they would have to block the world at large as I know a lot of people.

If you don’t believe this company is selling its spots here is some clear proof in the screen shots below.

i7net.net fishy 25 ranking

The page for i7net.net shows no uptime, or for that matter a start date.

From below you can see Hosting-Reviews-Exposed has a Alexa ranking of 3,321,283.  Not bad considering this was a one page website for two years until last month.

Now you see that I7net.net has a Alexa rating of 10,583,515.   This is terrible for a website that is supposed to be the 25 most popular webhost out of 10,293 webhosts.  There is no proof to back their claims that this is a popular webhost.

Now you see Hostgator.com has a rating of 385 (webhost # 5 with a popularity rating of 5 out of 10,293 webhosts with webhosting stuff.com)

Seriously Michael Low of webhostingstuff.com, how do you explain this?
