Worst customer service and bad downtimes
I used awardspace.net for 4 years because I never felt like actually going through the effort of switching hosts. Throughout the 4 years they had pretty bad downtime relative to other hosts. What got me was last night I noticed all of my sites were down. I tried to login to my account and kept getting a message about invalid user. If you call up you get connected to another company that provides support and they are located in India which made it very hard to understand what was going on. They deleted my account even though I had been paying for it for years now and have not gotten back to me in over a day now about my issue. My account was deleted because they said I was sending spam emails, however, the only email scripts I had were the ones that were set up for the contact forms on my sites and all emails were sent directly to me.

They are by far the worst at dealing with support. They do have some good features but overall I would avoid them.

Administratos who cant see screen shots
After 6 months with Awardspace :.. Well "Awardspace sucks"

My site has "Aperantely" used 5Gig of data in the first 2 days of the month of May, and because of that it's been suspended. But from history, data usage has been in the 100MB's nowhere near the what Awardspace tells me.

What's also interesting is their Traffic Monitoring System show's my site only has used 40MB in total.

Contacting Support, with Screen shots is a joke. They are just don't understand it, or most likely don’t’ want to admit something sus is going on.

I have noticed (and who wouldn't with the amount of adds in the Control Panel) Awardspace has a special of $1.99 for a year hosting with Unlimited Storage and Traffic. After a year it appears to be in the $30+ something! So are they trying to get me to sign up for $1.99 then at the end of the year charge me a whooping $30. This doesn't look to be a honest hosting company anymore.

Good Luck to the new comers’ you should wait 6 months before [read more...]

Overview

About Award Space

AWARDSPACE.COM is a leading hosting company that has pooled together the extensive expertise and knowledge of its two mother companies Zetta Hosting Solutions ltd. and AttractSoft GmbH.

AttractSoft GmbH is a fast-growing Germany-based company that has become a leader in the field of software development and software outsourcing.

Founded in 2002, Zetta Hosting Solutions ltd., is a premier web hosting platform development company. It has extensive know-how in providing a complete suite of professional web hosting services, VPS hosting, domain registration, design, and customer support.

Services Overview
AWARDSPACE.COM has a variety of services including: Shared Web Hosting (Free and Paid), Virtual Private Servers (VPS) Hosting, Domain Name Registrations, Domain Name Transfers, and SSL Certificates (in association with world’s most trusted SSL providers).

Since 2005 we have been offering a feature-limited free PHP web hosting service as a part of our courtesy policy and believe this makes our client base larger. We are proud that this has associated and marked us as a pioneer in the Free Web Hosting industry.

Data Center Infrastructure
Our servers are strategically collocated in LambdaNet, Kiel, Germany. The data center is well-known for being one of the connecting internet backbones between Europe and North America. That’s why LambdaNet has a large number of private peerings. The presence of key international exchange points is providing our customers fast access to all important Internet networks between Europe and North America. Additionally, our clustered hosting platform combines the extensive experience gained throughout the years by the mother companies that have established AWARDSPACE.COM. We rely on spreading the load on different machines and thus ensuring a smooth running service.

Our Strong Advantages
Our main advantage is the risk-free service – free web hosting with limited features for those of you who are newbies and are not convinced they will need hosting for a long time or for those of you who want to test the service before purchasing. Once a customer decides to make a purchase, we offer a 30-day no-questions-asked money-back guarantee in order to give the customer that extra piece of mind. Another strong advantage is our custom hosting platform that we developed in-house, maintain to run at top capacity, and continually update and improve. We are proud with our control panel that includes management options for: Web Hosting, Domain Names, SSLs and VPS’s. These online web interfaces help you manage and control everything about your web site(s).

It took me a while to find a decent website that provided FREE webhosting and when i stumbled upon this site i was unsure at first. Having tried it it turns out I found it a joy to be part of. It's simple to set up, easy to use and has one of the best control panels I've ever used!
Excellent Customer Support! Always prompt responses in Live Chat and Email... always moments after contacting Award Space Customer Service. Zero down time in 3+ years, using all Free hosting features. Definitely upgrading to Award Space paid hosting.

I have used Awardspace for 3 years without problems until recently when my web site was taken down without warning. My user name and password are not recognised and I cannot log into the site. I cannot raise a trouble ticket without logging on so I cannot even find out what is wrong. I cannot even sign up for a new account because "0x046 there is a problem ! Please try again later."
No doubt there is a simple explanation for all of this but if you can't contact the company how can you find out what it is.
All companies should have at least an email address for contact.
I am now trying Freehostia.

Say godbye to your domains
After using the free service and transferring domains I was hit by the speed. Significantly slower when you pay. Of course, you are now trapped. Be _very_ careful with renewals and transfers I lost domains as AS control panel shows incorrect dates. They say that they have renewed but have not. So control panel says 9 more months to go, no emails to alert you etc and it expired last week. And that is with auto renewal turned on. Customer support is also extremely poor. They assume you are an idiot and give a textbook answer. You have reply several times before they actually read your support issue properly. Fix it? only if you are lucky. Control panel is very buggy. And of course when you can't do something such as pick and email address they don't listen. Do not use paypal as they set up a recurring payment and take money even if you turn off auto renew. Uptime is not so good either. Use a free uptime monitor and see that it is poor even on the free service. Never had so much trouble [read more...]

thank you
"Believed or not up until few months ago I did not know what is hosting. I wanted to create a website to promote my work. I sing up with Awardspace on a free account and had some rough times. I mean my site some time was up sometimes not. So I called them to ask what is going on. The person on the phone was really cool. He explained that on free servers that is almost normal since there was some thousand users on it. Imagine that. So he said to me to try the paid plans. Since I do not need much I took the basic plan. Now imagine that may site is never down, it loads fast. Now some people say that free is good but let me tell you sometimes to give a little is better.
Thanks awardspace see ya.

the perfect servers
This guys from Awardspace are awesome. I stated using them back in 08 and I went thru all of their service plans. Started with the Basic but as may sites kept growing and growing I was upgrading. The servers are perfect almost no down time unless they do maintenance witch they notify in advance. Also the support team answers all may questions and the do not take more then couple of hours to do so. I will definitely say that they are a great company and I’m really happy that I can use them.

happy even since I signed up with them
Now where do I begin from..... I started with a free package more that 4 years ago and all has been going smoothly since then. Yeah, they had their own issue, but they were not something that one should be worried about. The support people - I have never seen such an efficient team. The response time is in literally minutes. I had a couple of times when I deleted my site and they managed to restore all my data, which saved me a lot of hassle. The uptime is also excellent. I recently renewed for 3 more years until 2014. What else can I say.... They are just amazing

I am pleased using Awardspace service!
I can express the point that Awardspace remains the best hosting company I've been using them for quite a long time already.
Website content transfer, domain name transfer, DNS pointing, effortless because of the professional help that was truthful, swift and accurate, plus done in a very friendly way!
Moreover, excellent stuff for open source project like Joomla, Mambo, etc. and good prices and tutorial for all level´s knowledge people.
Really great service that I highly recommend!

I've been using several hosting services in my life, and so far I can say this is the worst I've ever seen, they frist went down for almost a week, and a cople days ago they went down again for two days.

I read in their forum that even the payed accounts suffered this kind of sutuations.

Do not waste your time as I did, I had to move my blog with all the sql tables and filles and it took me over 12 hrs.

Rated 9/10
I am a professional web hosting critic and reviewer. I've audited more than 60% of all web hosting companies in the world and I can safely say that Awardspace is one of the best out there. Why ?
+ Data Center located in the country with the best economy – Germany
+ Prices hard to match
+ Real Uptime is somewhere between 99.8% and 99.9% which is really good. Even though most companies say its 99.999% or even 100% you should not be naïve and be realistic. Nothing is 100% sure.
+ Great features even on the free hosting plan (used it before I upgrade)
- Admin Panels are not very user friendly
In conclusion awardspace is a top-notch hosting provider and consider the few cons I would definitely place it in the World Top5 of web hosting providers.

Good offers on vps packages. Not the cheapest but I think the best features out there. I am personally using the second (pro VPS) plan and the freedom in managing the service is great. yesterday I even called them and spoke to a very polite person who clarified some billing questions that i had. They even offered me to take advantage of a promotion that was only available for new customers.
They are really a great deal

I had a difficult setup for a client - his primary website is served by a "cookie cutter" real estate website vendor. His email is handled by another source, and his registrar was in Australia. We wanted to set up blog.domain-name.com to go to his AwardSpace site. -- AwardSpace immediately understood what had to be done, and volunteered to do it! They took over the registration, DNS, and set everything up without a hitch. -- The actual software on the AwardSpace site is more complete than what I was used to at GoDaddy. The server is lightening fast. -- But the real clincher is the customer service. Every call was answered by somebody smart and knowledgeable. Every answer was correct (unlike the other providers, in this case). They implemented everything they promised within hours. -- In contrast, I had to send many emails to convince GoDaddy that there was a problem with the server my site is on. -- I just don't know how they can provide this much service at the price.

In the past almost 2 years I've used several web hosts and AwardSpace.com is my favorite, always my first choice. I manage the websites for several businesses and sometimes have to work with other web hosts, and I am mostly frustrated with the others. AwardSpace.com is always helpful and has never let me down. They have 24/7 support that actually answered my requests in timely manner during any time of the day. This past weekend I was forced to move a website of one of the businesses because their web host decided to just change their email policies without notifying their customers, and then didn't respond to my frantic attempts to contact them all day to correct the situation. Finally, I called AwardSpace.com at 2 AM and spoke to a helpful tech who helped me figure out how to migrate everything to AwardSpace.com. I called several times over the weekend and always received a quick courteous answer. By Monday we had the website and a very involved mailing list all ready to go! I've [read more...]

I have recently renewed my hosting account with Awardspace and it is more than a year that I am here. I am happy with the services I get and recommend it to everybody I know (To my clents as well.)
I have used list of other hosting companies before I came here. All of those have failed what they have promised to give as an agreed service or sometimes terms and contitions were not very good to accept. Some of them had a poor support service, site uptime problems etc.
But since I have joined Awardspace I dont plan to go anywhere else. Because for a small monthly payment I get 60 GB storage 1000GB traffic and lot of other services I could not find elsewhere. I would say uptime is 99 percent.
I have met a great support service in here. These professionals pick up all queries timely and try to help in all solution possible and impossible cases. I remember I had one case where I asked support personnel to help me in some .htaccess problem regarding payment prosessor installation (SSL). [read more...]

I have used Awardspace Hosting for over five years, and I just wanted to compliment you on the excellent service you provide. My sites are never down and I never experience server issues. On the few occasions when I have required technical assistance, the support staff was courteous and knowledgeable, and resolved my issues very quickly. I recommend Awardspace to all my clients, and I would not consider hosting my own sites with any other host. Thanks for the great service Awardspace, and I look forward to many more years as a happy Awardspace customer.

I have been in need of another web hosting account and went back and forth between adding more resources at one host that I like and where I have 2 accounts already or to diversify and get an account at an additional host. The first won and I finally settled for a new web hosting account.
I signed up late in the evening and just took advantage of new the cutoff for new accounts to be activated by a few minutes.
This morning things worked its way and my account was approved and setup very quickly. I also got a detailed welcome email with information about their environment and my new main account. At first I could not log into their helpdesk, but a quick ticket solved that issue in 15 minutes after submitting my ticket.
My next ticket was about moving my accounts. I asked them if they would be able to assist by moving my account (which really makes a site move a breeze). This ticket, low in priority was answered within 45. The bad thing is they do not want to offer moving of all my [read more...]

AwardSpace is fine when the server is up, free web hosting is supposed to be the best on the internet, well I might agree if not for server down time. Maybe it's because of where the server is, that people think it's ok to have the server down during their night time, but my customers are like 12 hours or more difference. No matter there are other free hosting sites to try, so I'm changing to one closer to home...

Well, I joined awardspace free plan (.info ext) for a new blog of mine. It worked just fine for a few days, installing wordpress was a breeze and it seemed to be smooth sailing from there. After the first few days my blog went down, so did wordpress login and awardspace hosting login. No communication about this from the host.

So, now I have a new (free hosted) blog...which I can't see, edit or troubleshoot...thx awardspace. Guess I'll be on my way to bluehost about now.

I have been very happy with my Awardspace free hosting up until now, although the controlpanel can be a bit confusing, but at present the site is inaccessible, I cannot log in to my account, and I have not been contacted about any problems. I have searched the awardspace homepage for many hours trying to find an announcement, at least telling me what is going on, and this is the first place I have found where any problem is flagged up. I tried the live chat facility, but there was no-one there(!), and emails have not been answered. Ironically, I was just about to add a second site to the awardspace service, but I shall now be looking to host both sites elsewhere. Strangely no-one seems to have contacted the free webhosting review sites with news about this and annoyingly awardspace is coming up with nothing but great reviews on all the ones I looked on (looking for a new site). Obviously these sites don't make a big effort to keep up to date, so how can we trust them when [read more...]

I have been using the site for 8 months with no problems whatsoever. I am on the free plan with copuple restrictions but as mine is an information based webpage with minimal graphics and only basic HTML and minor scripts, that has not been a problem...

Up until January 7th, 2010. On Jan 7th, one of their service went down (server no:8), bringing down all the sites hosted on it. It has been three weeks and not a single one official announcement has been made from the company itself. Even people on paid hosting plans have not been able to access their websites, or control panels. As the server is down, it is not possible to retrieve your web site either. So, people with no backups are basically screwed.

Having technical problems is one thing. But having a 21 day downtime with no official announcemnt/communications is another. Way to go Awardspace...

Awardspace is the only web hosting provider that I have used for more than 4 years. During that time they have proved that they are a great investment and easy to use service. I have an ecommerce site that makes approximately $400 permonth and I only pay $5 per month for hosting. The ROI is the greatest I have seen so far. That is the reason I am giving it an excelent mark.

If you're thinking about signing up with these people, be aware of the 30 refund policy BEFORE signing up with the 30 or 60 days plan: "AWARDSPACE.COM offers a 30-day money back guarantee. If you are not satisfied with our hosting service within the time frame of 30 days after you purchased the account, you need to contact our sales department by writing an email to sales@awardspace.com and you will receive a full refund for your hosting plan. However, please note that hosting account upgrades and renewals are not applicable to refund as well as hosting accounts purchased for period of 3 and 6 months.". I lost my money so you might not.

I would have rated it 10 except for one thing: shitty MySQL databases.

Seriously, the MySQL is down like, half the time. Sometimes the databases are down for an entire day. If you want to host a forum or something like that, don't use awardspace. But everything else is just PERFECT. So, if you're just some dude who doesn't really want any dynamic content like a forum or a commenting system then go right ahead, awardspace is the option for you. If you do however want to use MySQL, you're better off using something else.

I picked Award Space from the few free webhosts that do not employ banners or adverts. The service is very good for newbies like myself who are learning the art of web design. I am also impressed with the consistancy of the service compared to other webhosts. In fact the service has been so good that I have never had to use the support services which means I can't actually rate the customer relations properly. Kudos.

Their free hosting service is the best I found so far. No banners, no adds, plus all you can expect for a professional web site hosting:
PHP, Perl(I didn't try yet), MySQL(1 database /w 10Mb, which is enough), FTP, 5 subdomains and you can also use 2 of your own registered domains. The account will never expire(mine is plus than 1 year old!). And the server has a good speed, even for scrips with SQL queries.
I've seen better control panels, but I rarely use it 'cause FireFTP(my favorite FTP client) almost replaces it.
The only negative point is that scripts are not allowed to send eMails in free hosting accounts. This is probably an anti-spam measure and don't expect to find this feature enabled in other free hosting services.

Tried all of these webhosts, and most of them said instant activation. Trying to install my stuff on their server was very much of a hassle because I thought the sites were instantly activated, but most of them were not. However this webhost really was. Also, I noticed that their FTP speed is 2-3 times faster than the others. That is great! I have not even started my website yet, and they are already better than the competition. Good job, guys!

This free hosting web site is by far the best free host I have ever had. I've been using awardspace for a good 7 months and have never had a problem with them, like other free host servers that drop your access to your web site every time something small happens. I have never been more pleased.

Hi there,
I have been using their services for more than 2 years now. At first I decided to give them a chance with the free plan they are offering it was ok though you do not have an SMTP server (can't send mails only receive), which is reasonable-you can not ask for every thing especially for free. This the reason why I updated to Max Pack and since then I am pretty much satisfied with them. By the way you can add a sub domain from your control panel after signing up.

Hi,
Just signed up. It was very each time to get their condition of usage only after sgning.
When I signed for their free deal (not completly free - you have to pay for the domain) i found out that I cannot upload a lot of types of files (.jpg, .zip and more). With thuis and aditional restriction this proved to be unusefull for me.
After buying their EGG plan again I got the terms of usage only after paying them. I hope they don't have any additional hidden clauses in their agrrement.
