Scalahosting was number 21 of 25 for Webhostingstuff.com’s May 2010 list. But now they are at 16. The owner of the companies name is Vince Robinson. But details are sketchy at best as there is not much to go on. Sure there lots of positive reviews about scalahosting. But I suspect there may be one too many positive reviews. Especially after my last post on how to write reviews.
So why am I suspicous of the postive reviews about Scalahosting on Webhostingstuff.com?
A claim of housing 18,000 domains seems honest. But it does not tell us how many customers they have. Back when I first started I would say that was a lot of domains (1999 I was still buying domains at $70 from Network Solutions). But towards 2005 it would seem far less as cheaper domain registers were popping up every where. I had one customer that had over 400 domains all of which were for an affiliate system with Rexxal (atleast I think that was the company). Scalahosting seems to have alot of postive reviews and very few negative.
A not so kind review about Scalahosting on webhostingtalk.com
It has to do with the webhostingtalk.com discussion.
Why might you ask does this review matter? Because this is not the only place he tried to post a review:
I have not looked further because one of the problems I have had while searching for negative feed back is I get stuck in pop up hell and sites that change to something that is by no means ‘G’ rated. But it stands to reason if he found these two sites and made a page dedicated to it on his site that he probable found webhostingstuff.com and other companies. Frankly there seems be more information on review sites then any other sites
My Finale thoughts on Scalahosting
Its probable nothing, but Scalahosting is on the same network as webhostingstuff.com.
Here is an inhterview with the founder of Scalahosting Vince Robinson:
I admit there is not a lot of dirt on this company, and perhaps they deserve their postive feed back. But I have to wonder about this one negative reviewer that seem to have a vendetta with this hosting company. Why would he not find webhostingstuff.com to post a review there as well?
As long as Scalahosting shows in the top 25 hosting postions with webhostinstuff, I recommend caution.
