Bought a hosting package to host my business site but it's not only unreliable, it doesn't work as it should be. The customer services try to convince me to pay 30 times as many as my payment to upgrade my package for it to work while it should be.
dun fall for their unlimited package. its fully of limitation. what good is an unlimited package that costs around RM500 per annual when you cannot even host around 10 wordpress blogs, which only 2 with daily visitors and the rest are practically dead sites. they will say your cpu is full, even if you all your sites are using 5 or 6 processes at any one time. go with godaddy deluxe hosting, its more worth it, cheaper and better value, somemore got free advertisement credits.
i have a very recent case where they just turned off my mail filters and i was looking high and low why my script was not working all of a sudden.............. till I found out the 'turning of' of the filter. Now this is what they call we did not make any such change! :P

Exabytes Network Pte Ltd is a leading web hosting company based in Malaysia that was founded on the principal of providing the best webhosting solutions to their customers. The story behind "Exabytes" as company's official name happened when CEO, Chan Kee Siak acknowledged the existence of a well-known company that goes with the name of "Gigabytes". Sounds like a BIG organization, isn't it? But being the visionary and competitive person that he is, Chan is determined to be even BIGGER and better than them, and so, the idea of naming the company "Exabytes" kicked in.
History of Success
Like a toddler learning how to walk, Exabytes has fallen a few times before it was able to stand tall in this robust cyber world today. We fell, then we rose, then we fell, but we rose again, stronger than ever before. It was this determination spirit that makes us what we are today - the number #1 webhosting provider in the region, voted by our customers.
Recalling back the past, we were just a webhosting reseller known as hostkaki.com and the present CEO was the sole founder back then. But step by step, Exabytes strived to give the best service to its clients and eventually grew into becoming a webhosting provider in 2001.
At the early stage of Exabytes establishment, we only had a group of 5 staffs, consist of the CEO, the customer service, and the technical support department to run the newly established business. Together, we had to work round the clock to achieve our mission and vision. But through a lot of perseverance, patience, mixed with perspiration, we were able to grow into becoming Malaysia's leading webhosting provider, serving our most loyal customer today, and many years to come.
Needless to say, this success was not acquired overnight without a lot of hard work from our own dedicated and loyal team. 8 years of experience in the webhosting industry has earned us the highest ranking in the webhosting industry in Malaysia, and of course, the client's trust in making Exabytes their definite choice to cater their webhosting needs.
There are many things that make a good webhost great. Here are just a handful of reasons why we should be at the top of your list!

Server Uptime and Network Uptime Guarantee
Exabytes agrees to use its best endeavors to ensure a 99.9% Network Uptime and 99.5% Server Uptime to the customers. Downtime is referred to as our server or network equipment being down and not ping able. Downtime excludes scheduled maintenance window which the maintenance notice shall be posted on our Support Center or email to our clients at least 3 (three) working days before the schedule date. Here are some common guarantees in the industry today and the actual amount of downtime per month involved.
99.5% uptime = 216 minutes of downtime in a month
99.8% uptime = 86.4 minutes of downtime in a month
99.9% uptime = 43.2 minutes of downtime in a month
99.99% uptime = 4.32 minutes of downtime in a month
99.999% uptime = 0.432 minutes (26 seconds) in a month
Customer shall not receive any credits under this 99.9% Network Uptime and 99.5% Server Uptime Guarantee in connection with any failure or deficiency of Web Site Availability caused by or associated with:
- Circumstances beyond our reasonable control, including, without limitation, acts of God, acts of any governmental body, war, insurrection, terrorism, sabotage, armed conflict, embargo, fire, flood, strike or other labor disturbance, interruption of or delay in transportation, unavailability of or interruption or delay in telecommunications or third party services, virus attacks or hackers, failure of third party software (including, without limitation, ecommerce software, payment gateways, chat, statistics or free scripts) or inability to obtain raw materials, supplies, or power used in or equipment needed for provision of this SLA;
- Failure of access circuits to our network, unless such failure is caused solely by Exabytes;
- False SLA breaches reported as a result of outages or errors of any Exabytes measurement system;
- Customer's acts or omissions (or acts or omissions of others engaged or authorized by customer), including, without limitation, custom scripting or coding (e.g., CGI, Perl, HTML, ASP, etc), any negligence, willful misconduct, or use of the Services in breach of our Terms of Service Policy;
- Email or webmail delivery and transmission;
- Scheduled maintenance and emergency maintenance and upgrades;
- DNS issues outside the direct control of Exabytes;
- Issues with FTP, POP, IMAP, or SMTP customer access;
- DNS (Domain Name Server) Propagation.
- Outages elsewhere on the Internet that hinder access to your account. Exabytes is not responsible for browser or DNS caching that may make your site appear inaccessible when others can still access it. Exabytes will guarantee only those areas considered under the control of Exabytes: our server links to the Internet, our routers, and our servers.
In the event of Server Downtime or Network Downtime which is (i) due to problem within Exabytes Network and (ii) if the total Server Downtime or Network Downtime exceeds specific numbers of hours consecutively (as specified in Table 1 below) in a calendar month, customer may claim for an Outage Event Credit (OEC). Notwithstanding the foregoing, the maximum amount of OEC can be claimed shall not exceed 50% of the total Monthly Fee for the Service provided, and this is limited to once in a calendar month frequency.
Why do reliable web hosting companies offer uptime guarantees backed with real credits or refunds to customer accounts?
We have been involved in the hosting industry since year 2001 and have seen many of our competitors come and go. Many web hosting companies failed because they are not committed to taking great care of their customers. If a web host has nothing to lose when your site is down, then their commitment and speed in restoring your site may not be the best.
Outage Event Credit (OEC)
In reality, an uptime guarantee may only mean a small refund or account credit for you, but if your web host is refunding or crediting every client on their server due to not meeting the guaranteed uptime, this could mean significant losses for them. For example, we have a server with maximum of no more than 300 accounts at USD 67.80/year each. If the server went down and it took us 48 hours to restore the service, that will means we only able to achieve 93.34% of uptime, which would translate to a loss of USD 390.60 for the month on that server alone. Obviously it is also in our best interest to get the troubled server up and running as fast as possible.
Customer shall submit all claims for OEC by email to firstname.lastname@example.org within three (3) business days after the Exabytes server / network is available again following the server or network downtime in question. In the event of customer's failure to submit the claims within the said three (3) business days, Exabytes reserves the right to reject the claims without any reasons.
Customers will be given acknowledgement of receipt of all claims within one (1) business days and Exabytes will review all such claims within seven (7) business days thereof. Upon review and findings, Exabytes will inform the customers by e-mail whether the appropriate claim will be granted or rejected. If the claim is allowed, the OEC will not be reflected in the current bill, but in the following bill.
Are the Server and Network Uptime Guarantee considered to be web site or business insurance?
We are in the web hosting business, not the insurance business. Our Server and Network Uptime Guarantee are in no way to be interpreted as an insurance product. Since the maximum amount of credits that can be applied to any web hosting account is the actual amount paid by the customer per month, quarter or year then obviously it is not sufficient to "cover" any damages caused by any server or network outage. We recognize that web sites cost money to develop, maintain and ecommerce sites can experience loss of sales and income when an outage occurs. We do not however offer any compensation for these types of losses as stated in our Terms of Service. While we do perform daily backups on all servers, it is the customer's responsibility to maintain their own site backups on their local computers at all times and if deemed necessary, obtain insurance products from reputable insurance providers to cover any loss of business or sales.
Exabytes reserves the right to make any modifications, amendments, revisions or changes to this Server Uptime and Network Uptime Guarantee at any time. Customer will be notified prior to any changes or variation to Server Uptime and Network Uptime Guarantee.

The company, which is presumably not a very large hosting provider, claims to host all websites in a "non-oversold environment" to ensure the speed and uptime of its clients' websites are always in top-notch condition."The web hosting industry is flooded with lots of dishonest web hosting companies which oversells their resources to maximize their profit," says James Lee, CEO of Aspiration Hosting. "However, this will definitely slow down the websites in these servers and customers will be easily suspended for using too much of their CPU usage and RAM resources. We are aware of this disease in the industry and thus, Aspiration Hosting is here to eliminate all the problems faced by most web hosting clients."In the same press release, ...
