Hi guys,

Nice to find such a great forum, really needed some information regarding servers as I'm not so good with technical mambo jambo...

Full Name: Xie Minggeng, Steven
Age: 21
Race: Chinese
Full-time Job: Student
Website: http://www.dreamdestiny.com

I'm trying to launch a webcomic next year, so take a look at my website and tell me what you guys think? Key problem is my webhost, Differenthost never replies my emails, and I'm kinda piffed that the domain is not registered under my name. Also trying to find a webhosting solution for my webcomic that can offer good bandwidth, any of you webhosts may be interested in helping me out? And need to learn some PHP scripting to make a comic archive...

reliability is important even if your site is low-trafficked. it is the basic responsibility for the web host to provide as much uptime as possible, but DH has failed miserably in this department. once the machine is down, it will most likely be down overnight as well, and it only comes back in the morning(i assume they restart the server when they report to work). this has immensely annoyed me and my members. i will not hesitate to move out of them.

something i'm realli worried abt is my domain name, it was registered under their name and i was quite pissed that it is not under my name.... so i can't transfer the domain over to another host...they NEVER reply my emails.

I'm sorry for all of you that have been caught up in this ....

Just a little note to the others :
Please do look around when you are signing up with a web host. Price isn't everything ! I cannot help but not stress this ... Look for other things like support, reputation, helpfulness, honesty etc.
