Worst Tech Support in the Industry
Tech support sucked! These guys have caused so many issues. response is slowwwww. Plus their servers have been getting slower and slower over the years. They forced me to move with their crappy tech support and slow servers. Nothing but problems every time I have issues. Getting them to respond don't hold your breath. Do they care? NO. Do they respond timely? NO. Does their tech support number work? Well yes it only tells you to file a ticket on line... Frustrating as heck.
Paying for their unlimited service is like getting unlimited with the AT&T. you can't really use it if you know how! This place is a crock. I recommend another services

Oh they are attacked quite often and service is or by us has been interrupted often. They also contact you if there is an issue they just shut you down! If you run a business don't use them! Bite me VODA You suck! Moved to my own server on host gator. Thanks for for getting to the point where I had to leave! No 99.9999% up time [read more...]

Avoid Vodahost
Due to their secutiry issues got a spam attack on ( malware code on all of subdomains).
I complaint about this
they came back and said changed the password ( this password was generated by them, so the stregnth is good)
then disabled my access on my server
put a ticket again, simply closed the ticket with 1 sentence.

Customer support is not helpful and total waste of time and money.

Vodahost - stay away...terrible service
Good price, good uptime but the worst support ever. Over the past three years we have had about 5 issues that we needed customer support and the information goes into a black hole and you wait hoping someone will get in touch with you. It takes days to resolve issues that our other hoster fixes in minutes. Stay away from Vodahost until they offer real support.

Data Center

Servers
We only use best Dell servers because of their great technology and proven track record.
Our servers reside in carrier-neutral sites and are built completely on computer-grade raised flooring; it is built for dedicated server hosting with redundant fiber entry points.

Location
All VodaHost servers are located in Dallas, Texas and are connected directly to the internet backbone at a lightening fast port speed of 1000 mbps.
Every VodaHost server is connected to a 100% Cisco Powered Network. Using enterprise-class Cisco networking gear, all routers, layer-2 switches, and layer-3 switches are tested in labs prior to deployment to ensure stability and interoperability.

It is a common misconception that the amounts of bandwidth (size of the pipes that carry the data) differentiate web hosting companies. In reality it is not only the size of the pipes that matters, it is the utilization levels. The utilization of our Internet connections is vital to a network's ability to transfer data without packet loss or latency. VodaHost aims to keep all connection usage below 50% to avoid any connectivity problems.

Using multiple Tier 1 Service Providers, VodaHost leads the hosting industry with our 99.99% uptime guarantee, ensuring the highest degree of security against network downtime and the fastest possible data transfers. VodaHost purchases premium bandwidth from the below providers.

Routing
VodaHost Servers run the Border Gateway Protocol (BGP4) for best case routing. The BGP4 protocol is a standard that allows for the routing of packets of information sent out from our network. Each packet of information is evaluated and sent over the best route possible. Because of our redundant network architecture, packets may be sent via alternative routes even if they are being delivered to the same end user. Should one of our providers fail, packets leaving our network are automatically redirected through another route via a different provider.

Security
The VodaHost Servers use a fully switched network. Traffic destined for a website hosted on a server is sent only through switching equipment necessary to deliver the information to that server. This minimizes the risk of someone sniffing or capturing traffic being sent across the network. Furthermore, We Will Vigorously Prosecute any person(s) who generates a malicious attacks on our internal network.

Climate Control
The data centers HVAC (Heating Ventilation Air Conditioning) systems are N+1 redundant. With full particle filtering and humidity control, the environment are maintained at a cool 68 degrees to ensure a comfortable environment for your server.

Security
Our Servers are physically isolated from everyone but level three technicians. Public access is strictly forbidden. Access to the floor the datacenter resides on is restricted and completely locked down.

Systems
The data center is not reliant upon the local power grid to guarantee maximum uptime. Our on-site, auto-switched power generator, and centralized UPS systems provide power conditioning and ensure uninterrupted data center operation. Additionally, the generators are regularly tested to ensure that it will continue to function in the event of an emergency

"I am retired and wanted to go into business that will allow me to enjoy my retirement and at the same time generate some more money. I decided to start an online business.
I had my business plan set, but I had no knowledge of setting up a website. My daughter suggested that I use this hosting provider as she stated that they are very professional with helping you to build your own website. I opened an account with them and was so excited to start my online business. The best part was I did not have to hire a web designer which would have cost me a lot of money. This hosting company indeed allowed new website owners like me to design the whole website with ease. While building my website, I was in contact with their customer service team, who were very patient and helpful to me in every step of the way. Since, I launched my new website; I have not had any problems with it at all. I must mention that the package that I got is amazingly priced. It is so affordable and at the same time, it offered me a lot of benefits that other hosting companies do not offer.
It has been a while now since I retired from work. I have to admit that I am enjoying my retirement and at the same time, earning more money as compared to my working days before. I don’t have to worry about money again, and my online business has been going great with this amazing and most reliable hosting provider."

"I would definitely say VodaHost is worth the money, and they are inexpensive too. Their tools are good for both beginners and experts and is very professional, high quality. Extremely good customer service and step by step tutorials for everything. You will love it!

shawn ( sharkobs@g... ) / www.amplezone.com
I run a small office supply company that deals in specialized paper and printing products. When my business expanded last summer, I set up a website through my local cable company in order to offer worldwide 24 hour access to my products. I was very disappointed in the local web hosting services. Clients would call at all hours to complain because the website wouldn't load, and they couldn't place their orders by the shipping deadline. After months of dealing with problems and downtime from my previous web host, a friend recommended I make the switch to VH.
I am so glad I did! The tech support helped make the transition so easy. Not only are they more affordable, but their professional customer support staff walked me through every step of the process. My clients depend on my website to keep their businesses up and running. They keep my clients happy by making my website dependable! I no longer get calls in the middle of the night with complaints about the site being down, and when I want to make a change, the customer support staff makes it easy.
I recommend them to anyone who is seeking to maximize their presence on the web. They offer competitive pricing, and unsurpassed customer support. VH simplified my life and made my business run more smoothly. I was so happy that I made the change, and you will be too!
A website business is easy with VodaHost
With a lot of pit-stops in the web hosting industry I reached the finish line with VodaHost. I was just out of college in 2002 when I began thinking of making a career in web site building.
This was when I began experimenting with website builders like Dreamweaver and Frontpage. I found that these platforms were highly technical and I needed to know a lot more before I could do anything professional. This was when one of my peers suggested taking a look at BlueVoda. I went through it like a breeze during the night and actually did not appreciate it much since it made things look too easy. I slept on it and though about the possibilities and the next morning I was reborn as a web site professional.
With VodaHost the web hosting package and the BlueVoda free software at my fingertips I realized that I can mark on the website building niche, at least at the lower rung. After two years, I am a veteran of over 25 client websites, all hosted with VodaHost. With a no-nonsense website builder and FTP client, making a sample website for a client was a matter of less than an hour. My sites have consistent uptime and the customer service handles my issues like they care.
I have a long list of waiting clients as well as older ones who can stand with me and say that VodaHost is the complete web site hosting solution.

Vodahost are appauling!
Absolutely appauling people. Vasili is an abusive, insulting, unhelpful, deceiptful, egotistial liar. The admin team are shocking and patronising as well as allowing their mods to edit, delete and falsely represent what you have actually written in the forums. If you do anything other than sing their praises they ban you instead of addressing the issues.

Their support ticket people were much more helpful, but because of what they allowed Vasili to do in the forums I have complained about them to the BBB

Shockingly abismal behaviour from a company who claim to be Christians!

Voda Host Customers Beware!!!!
I noticed Aug. 30 that someone was sending Spam through my website email.

TICKET 1 OPENED: I contacted customer support who told me to change my passwords. I did and then couldn't access any of my own email but the spam kept sending. I contacted customer support again.

They asked for my email address and password to check it. I replied they reset my cpanel and email passwords and then I couldn't access either one and closed the ticket on Sept. 1.

On Sept. 1 I opened a new ticket still couldn't access cpanel or email and spammer was still sending spam. Customer support told me to change passwords which I couldn't even get to to change. Told me scan my website with some link which I don't know how to do. I left a message no reply ticket closed.

TICKET 2 OPENED: Sept. 1 Unable to access my site because of a "brute force attack". Asked customer service to CALL ME!

Sept. 2 New ticket opened will call this TICKET 4.

This hosting company is brilliant. They are just so helpful in every way. I had decided to sign up with this company after the terrible experience I had with my previous company. The company I had before was just incompetent; I ended up having to take five websites off line while I searched for a new company. I had made the mistake of signing up with the first company because their price was so cheap, you couldn’t say “no.” I should have realized that the saying is true. “Nothing in life is free” A cheap account meant cheap results and bad customer service. A year after opening the account with the first company, they had increased their fees by 300%. I saw no signs that their services or my websites get better along with the changes.

That is when I switched to these guys and instantly I benefited after coming across all their video tutorials which taught me a lot of stuff that I did not know. Their cPanel was also better laid out and easy to understand. I was immediately filled [read more...]

SCAM - WORST HOSTING EVER - DON'T USE
Fist they say you can use any domain numbers but you won't be able to separate the first domain from the rest (user accessing the first domain will have access to all other domains you host with them). The speed is not as advertised, my site would start loading after few seconds. After 3 weeks of hosting they change server and IP and DNS server IP. Creating a mess. They changed DNS records as they think it should without ask me. My registrar had the old IP of their DNS. I called them but they do advertising on the phone on my money. The support ticket page wouldn't load (at least for my account). I wrote emails but all emails keeps coming back with an error from their php automated system. They send me some emails asking me to change my A record. How to do it when I couldn't even log to my account. I'm still waiting for paypal refund.

best hosting service
I am using this hosting service for a couple of years now. I love their customer service because they will always solve all my problems. In the past with my old hosting company I would scream the whole day because my website was having problems and no one was there to help me. With this hosting company, I am able to contact them and receive all my answers right away. The best part of this hosting service is that they offer a website builder that doesn’t require any HTML coding and a person can easily make his/her own website by following easy steps. I had wasted a lot of money on learning different HTML coding but I failed to learn them as it was just so confusing. But with this website builder I was able to achieve in creating an awesome website that I love. This website builder is not only about building a website but it also contains different templates which can make your website attractive.

VodaHost is fantastic.
I had spent many hours and days looking for a hosting company that meets my expectations. I wanted a reliable but cheap hosting service that offered fantastic customer service. I have finally found what I was looking for and more and I recommend this hosting company to anyone that is looking for the same.

What really fascinated me about this company was the guaranteed uptime of 99%. Most people that have an internet business want their websites to be up and running all of the time and this company can provide this. More features which make it stand out from the rest of the hosting companies are unlimited amounts of data transfer every month as well as unlimited space at an extremely affordable price. What more could you ask for from a hosting company? To top it off, this hosting company also offers a free website builder that can be used by their customers to develop and create the best websites. This website builder is so easy to use that even beginners can take full [read more...]

their system is so easy to use!!
I am very happy with my website.
I have had a couple of teething problems mostly me being a little dumb, and I'm not even blonde. They solved them for me quickly and without making me feel even more stupid. I find their system easy to use and I am happy to find when I create a page it looks the same when I publish which it did not do with my other host, and that was one of the main reasons for me changing host.

They suspend without telling us first.
No telephone support the phone number you call is a message telling to send it by email. They don't listen to problem or understand. BE WARNED VERY HOPELESS

When their service is running it OK, anyone can say your site a spam or malware site and they just suspend.

Their sites can only handle limited traffic, any more than 30 hits a second your site will go down, until traffic clears. Great for website with hardly any hit. (If your webpage has more than 10 pics which mean 10 hits in that second, the site will pause until for the next user if more the five users hit it at the same time)

Good host for uneducated web user until something goes wrong...

Absolutely lovin' the tutorials and guidelines; as much as web hosting must be easy, because there are so many websites, I found it quite difficult to get my head round. I came here after finding the bluevoda software and the ease of use if BV is continued: Straight forward sign-up, easy bill paying and account house-keeping. There's little more to say other than after some of the confusion that I can see clearly now my website is up and running on the web. Very well-rounded services for a good price and certainly recommend if you're getting started Everything you need you can find here.

Let’s not mince words here ... web hosting is an industry where there is too much choice. Nearly every website advertises some kinda web hosting company or service let alone the pages and pages of contacts that Google gives you. There are so many that it becomes difficult to choose who to take up an account with for the website that you’ve poured your heart and soul into for so long.

I arrived here by chance on the back of a web hosting article and was impressed by logical way the services where laid out and backed up by appropriate information and tutorials. The servers supported php and mysql (you’d be surprised how many still don’t) and for me this was just essential.... It was also important that the servers ran Linux because I find it to be the most reliable option for a web server OS. I run for cover when I see windows servers or asp.net ...

I had remote access to everything I needed to manage my web site. .. It’s nice to see Fantastico offered, even though I wouldn’t use [read more...]

Well ... I feel I've discovered a host here with unparalleled website hosting services, ACTUALLY!
In nearly every way they've been better than the hosts I've used before you actually get UNLIMITED stuff for real, for example instead of people e-mailing you complaining about the size of your database or website files and server usage or something.
I really do like the cPanel ... such a nice GUI to control your website from and it DOES come with Fantastico which will help out people new to blogging and content and such and the add-on domain feature is great value, what with being able to host multiple domains you only need one account with them and you can host as many websites as you like.
I got an SSL add for my site with little hassle too and it was set-up promptly and there's more stuff (software tools and knowledgebase materials) here than I think you could actually use...

VodaHost was not a particularly easy hosting service to navigate through setup. They do provide several videos and online information but in the end the user interface is not very intuitive. If you manage to get through setup and never need to speak with customer service, then their service may prove sufficient for you (as it did for me for 2 years).

There was one exception, when we did need a response to a billing issue and absolutely received a form reply that did not address the question what-so-ever. So we had to reply again and request that a person actually READ the email and reply with an appropriate response. This is unacceptable customer service.

However, today my website is down and will not load. I am unable to speak to anyone in customer service and have been trading emails with someone who is completely not helpful.

Here is a bit of the email exchange, as an example...

I'm so impressed by this provider, from the forum to the knowledge base to the BV website builder software and even web hosting product itself. I don't think I'd have been able to get my website going so quickly without them; in fact everything you need is here to go from web hosting zero to web hosting hero.

I got it up and running about a couple of years ago and since then I haven't regretted signing up. My website's live on the web and other than once I don't recall it being offline for any period of time.
The cost of their web hosting is a bargain too and is comparatively cheap at just under $8 a month if you break it down.

Have used the customer support ticket system a few times ( once because of some confusion on my part over how my domain name worked; ha it's actaully kinda funny to think about in hindsight ) and a couple about the add-ons in cPanel but in each there was an answer in a video tutorial and it was straight forward.

Love waiting for the new forum [read more...]

When it comes to web hosting, I support these guys!

They're one of a kind and I'm thankful to the innovators who have made life for people like us so simple.

This is the era of electronic media and someone who does not know how to use it, is considered an outcast. Now thanks to this company I feel more confident in interacting with my friends as I too feel that I am a part of the electronic network with this superb company. You absolutely have all the tools you require to design and host your website.

The features that pleased me the most were the cPanel and customer support. When you sign up you have access to very many resources and can navigate your way from the website to the forum (hours of reading). You’ll be surprised to find lot of very experienced users giving advice to the new to web hosting users. You can ask any questions you need and get a reply there at the web hosting forum.

If there is any web hosting company which truly concentrates on the thing they do best, web hosting, then this is it. I chose them a while because of a coupon promotion but don't let that fool you ... web hosting with these guys has been very satisfying; I got just what I wanted from them and it works. It's friendly and professional and provides with the really good tech support for web hosting (seriously the best i've gotten from a shared host! - had one support guy explain how to edit a .htaccess file and the instructions actually read like English!!!). I think it's best when web hosting is a fun and rewarding experience (because so much of it is embedded in technology which can be frustrating and sometimes it can be difficult to have fun) and working with these web hosts is like that; it's supported and easy and cheap and a combination of these things is always nice. It's been a lot of fun. Definitely check 'em out.

Working here is an experience to share and the satisfaction I have taken from this web hosting company is part of a benchmark I think everyone should take from web hosting, especially the beginners because the knowledge-base gives you loads to start web hosting with right from scratch. (I learned everything from scratch; a case of having to).
They've helped me understand a alien world of web hosting which I was only really aware of at the surface and I'm a total fan now.
I can upload my new designs quickly and easily through their web hosting and software and the features here are complete, are most definitely competitive and are reasonably cheap too.
I think the best way to sum it all up is to say that web hosting here is fun, simple and professional and that the customer support is quick and they do answer your questions and very often the detailed tutorial videos are a great help because they fill in very many of the as yet un-encountered blanks if you are new to web hosting.

Had no problems with them until recently.

They suspended my site without any notification, said i was using too much CPU usage, which is understandable to suspend the site. I however have no idea how this would occur and their support is doing no effort to attempt to fix it.

Have gone through over a dozen support tickets getting either no response or telling me I am duplicating a ticket even though they have closed the previous tickets without fixing the problem.

I am now in a situation where I am paying for hosting and have all of my website and emails stored on their server but I am not even able to access it.

I am losing business because of it and they don't seem to even care so for me I am leaving them as soon as I am able to get the information off my site and will be pulling off the several dozen clients I have put on there also.

I originally came across these guys when I was looking to set up a web hosting account a while back. I've built and hosted a couple of websites so I knew what I was doing but I wanted a web hosting company that had good customer service and who promised high uptime on their web hosting. They've ticked the boxes repeatedly on these two essential needs and their prices are good. I was like D-OH!! when immediately I came across problems using my FTP client but I sent off a support ticket to the customer support and waited and within about 24 hours they had got back to me with the answer I was looking for. Certainly didn't have to wait days!! I got my website built and maintaining it is fun thanks to the features of the cPanel on my account as well as reading their forum and online tutorials. Any company that gives out all that information for free is great. Anyway that was like two years ago and I am still here now - such a procrastinator didn't write a review yet (um do it tomorrow...)

With the services here I've managed to designed my very own first website with help of the website builder – Bluevoda - I found that this was what my brother had used to design his site and I followed their directions and published it and it only took me a couple of hours to get all of this done fine. I followed the tutorials which have helped immensely - the best thing for me - I’ve learned a lot about web hosting and whatever the queries I had in my mind are answered by the customer support in email and in the forum so it's all good. Web hosting here was easier than I could ever have ever imagined. I'm no pro sure but its been excellent web hosting for me. I'd recommend.

I signed up with Vodahost as it seemed very professional. The presentation was good, it had all the tools that a starter/web designer may need and the extra tools like Soholaunch used seemed very good.

Until my root account had to be reconfigured so I had to install Soholaunch again and restored the backup I did a couple of months earlier.

Not only the restore within soholaunch didn't work but the vodahost customer suport has not found out yet the reason. A month after serveral email back and forth I've been waiting for 3 days since the last emal I've sent them, and I haven't been able to work on my website for almost a month.

I checked the soholaunch forum and someone else mentioned on the forum that the restore/backup didn't work on the free version on soholaunch.

At this point on time Im glad that this has happened before the website was fully live. But it leaves me wondering if I did the right thing signing up with them.

When I started my webhosting my knowledge was nil. I don’t know if you need a shopping cart or not, but here are my suggestions, (though not solicited). I started out with the BlueVoda website builder and ended up going with Soholaunch. Either way, stick with it. These guys rock and will be there for you all the way. Friendly forums and quick answered support tickets!

The Forum is for me one of their greatest assets, which by itself is already an incredible bargain. Kudos to them for a job well done. They have a lively forum and a great support team that makes it easy to go about making a great site in very little time.

To those seeking a free webuilder and a great hosting service I recommend them as the best of the best.

i reckon they’ve brought a lot of added value to my business ever since I shifted over and they offer a range of webhosting features which are pretty cost effective and technologies which are pretty easy to adopt too. the webhosting service itself offers as many domain names as you want to host, large storage and it’s fast too. It’s all pretty easy to use. their webhosting package comes loaded with some cool tools to assist in website designing as well not least the cpanel which makes sense. i have not seen any other webhosting company offering so many useful and business-essential features like this one does especially with things like the soholaunch website builder which has all your shopping carts or other programs you might be more familiar with.

overall I’d say it is quite affordable, great for a small-business person like me and does not have anything i would consider to be a hidden cost. the support team is really good though I haven’t used them that much, can resolve issues [read more...]

Quite frankly (my dear… :) ), for me, it’s been like a dream come true finding this company. I found that web hosting didn’t really involve any of the hiccups that I’d initially feared and I’ve found them to be highly reliable; I’ve not been hassled because of uptime issues which is essential for my online trading as downtime would result in loss of business and frustrated clients. Everything here is as stated regarding web hosting and price which, as it happens, is real reasonable considering all the features it provides beyond web space: the cPanel controls, the free advanced site-building tools like SohoLaunch and Drupal for all your web designing etc. etc. and as many websites as you like hosted for no extra cost. Other web hosts I’ve visited really didn’t do it in a language that a relative layman (like me, I guess) could understand and their support services just weren’t as good as they are here.

If your looking for a good host, keep looking. I hosted my site hosted with Vodahost and what a headache that was. Never again! If you require fast support don't hold your breath! Your not going to get it. My average support ticket set to high priority took 3 days just to get the initial response. After that it would take another 5-7 days to sort the problem out because they would only respond to me once a day!

As for all the positive comments here don't believe them. They're most likely employees as well as a customer of Vodahost hosting their own sites with the company they work for.

And one more thing I want to say is, Vodahost as well a many other nickle budget hosting companies all share a common deception. They con you in with the term "Unlimited". Nothing is unlimited! There is a limit to everything.

The service I've gotten from VodaHost has been super-good.

BlueVoda’s really good (it’s a simple website builder but kinda another story; check it out though).

I’ve had a few problems with web hosting before and decided to do a really thorough trawl through the web hosting providers. I just wanted something professional and straightforward.

At first, when I started my travel business, I thought just having a freebie site was good enough. Although I worked very hard on the site, it just didn’t look professional enough and I was limited on how I wanted it to look. So my search began for the right web hosting company. Seems like when the “what’s the best web hosting company” question comes up, most choose the same company or the company at the top of yahoo or whatever but to me it was so hard for me to weed through all the features and if you wanted more features you had to pay more money.

After many years of wanting to start my own small business, I finally took the plunge! I was so excited when the products began arriving and when I hired two staff members to help run the shop.

I’m a computer graduate, currently administering two of my own sites apart from my job and I’ve been using VodaHost for quite a while now. I arrived at VodaHost after changing my web hosting company twice for one-reason-or-another, the first time I changed was because I was not getting helpful responses from the support-desk of the web hosting company and the second time I changed the web hosting company was because of the low up-time of the web hosting company’s servers and frequent system faults but also ‘cause the customer support guys use to tell me that there was nothing wrong! These ups and downs of the web hosting company helped reduce the monthly users of my sites!

I need a fast n’ reliable web hosting company because I run an e-commerce gift-shop website.

As a proprietor of a budding online business venture, making the right decision about which web hosting company to choose aids in differentiating your online business as a traffic driving and an attention grabbing website that is completely cut off from the crowd of internet businesses.

When I ran into a problem accessing the database for my site, I was simply told, "you must be doing something wrong" and simply closed the support ticket.

I have since tailored my site to the most popular customer base and have been able to pump up my sales exponentially. Their invoices come monthly and I have never been charged for something that I was not sure about. They definitely outdid my previous company in regards to features, but more importantly reliability and customer support. The active forum is a huge plus. I never feel as if I am left without support. I think that they are an honest company who wants to succeed. The price is right and the service is consistently top notch. They get my vote!

I signed up with them because I decided to build my first web site with their free website builder, BlueVoda. I love BlueVoda and so far am a very happy customer. I now have a pretty successful blog site and really enjoy my new hobby. They have been there when I needed support. There haven’t been any surprises, and I definitely feel as if they are always trying to improve their products and services. I have recommended the BlueVoda program to many friends and always tell them that VH will affordably offer everything and anything that they will need. The customer support forums are really well run and have been a great source of information for me. I would hate to leave their hosting and lose the amazing support system they offer. As a newer member of the web world, I can say that they are a class A company in my book.

First off, let me say that the web service offered is very good for an entry-level user.

Vodahost offers many more services than a novice user will likely ever even want, and there's a lot of good feedback out there. You can't trust VodaHost's forums though, they are moderated, meaning that they will not allow anything but positive feedback to be published there.

I can't reccommend this service, unless you find the following acceptable:

1) Have your service cut off 4 days before the billing cycle ends
2) Receive threats to delete your content after they have denied you FTP access to recover it, once again before the service period has ended.
3) Service not being started up again until 7 days later, after payment is received and the staff are prompted, and not so much as an apology afterwards.
4) implied 2% yearly downtime due to staff denial of service.

Service started on May 9th, 2008, you can verify this by checking the domain registration for [read more...]

After creating a website for my business, I was on the lookout for a reliable web host to host my website. On the suggestion of one of my friends, I thought of trying out services they offer.

At first, I was apprehensive of using them for my hosting needs as I thought it impossible for any company to offer so much at such an affordable and great price. However once I bought their great package, I found its customer support, tech support and uptime to be reliable and professional.

Today I consider them to be a great choice as a web hosting company. This is because this is a company that not only provided me with efficient web hosting services, but it also provided me with a free website builder, which helped me create many more websites in a short span of time.

I never did repent buying and using them as I find its staff to be both friendly and responsive. I had undergone a few problems while starting out; however when I turned to the company for help, they were more than [read more...]

In my opinion I would say they work best for me. I transferred to them from another poor quality hosting provider. I was experiencing plenty of downtime with the previous hosting company. Now their uptime meet my needs and the support is there when you need it. They are prompt to answer your queries. I have been hosting my sites with them for a year now. I. There is no limit on their database usage and you can create as many databases as you need from your package. Both bandwidth quality of service and MySQL database queries seem to be fast enough. The privacy and security aspects they provide are all I could ask for. I say this is fair service for my money. I will be staying with them and am not planning to switch to any other web hosting company. I get my money's worth. I have also referred my friends to them for their web hosting needs. Keep up the good work!

I think my quest for a good web host has finally ended after I signed up with them. They have nice features that help me get a lot of things done without having to know a lot of technical stuff, or spending much of my time designing my web pages. I am a connoisseur of good web design, but lack technical skills in website creation. I can expertly appreciate or critique another’s website, but can hardly create my own. I was desperately looking for a platform through which I could also develop websites like the ones that I saw and really appreciated on the web, but could hardly find an easy solution until I came to them. The wide variety of features that they provide has really helped me get started on fulfilling my dream of creating professional looking websites of my own.

We never imagined we could have our own website until last week. That is when we came to know about them. We run an orphanage and all our administrative personnel are above fifty years of age and know very little about the Internet. But they took care of all our requirements, despite our ignorance in technical matters. The customer support staff was very cooperative, patient and courteous to our elderly staff members. They also configured an email address for each one of them. Their tri-annual billing method really suited our requirements. We do not have to remember about payments for the next three years. All of us are thrilled to have our own website thanks to their excellent support.

When you run a small business like I do you need to be able to count on your employees. And, when your business is online, one of your employees is your web hosting company. So, you have to choose wisely. After quite a bit of research, and a bit of trial and error, I discovered a web hosting company. And, with them I have discovered the reliability of a trusted employee.

I come in to my office each morning and my assistant (another trusted employee) is already there with the computer up and running and a nice hot cup of coffee for me. I sit down and check out the screen and they have my website running like a top. With their guaranteed 99 percent uptime and reliable customer service I feel like the CEO of a multi-billion dollar corporation. Their hosting is top of the line professionalism.

Compatible and reliable - VodaHost web hosting

We are a professional web building company with a portfolio that also caters to SEO needs of many other clients. Our basic platforms on which we build are ASP. PHP, AjaX and RoR. With such varied expertise and needs to clients, every one of our project ends with looking for the right web hosting service provider who is reliable as well as compatible with what we have built. This process is real tedious and there is a need to get in touch with the web hosting companies to find out fit they can support what we have built. The answer, that is if we get one, is always in the affirmative but experience has taught us that most web hosting companies have customer support manned by people who hardly are technical. We have been looking for a solution to this problem in a web hosting company that can support almost all platforms and one that can respond to our calls in time.

I have had all positive experiences with them. I would say that I am getting the best deal for my money that I won't get from anywhere else. I tried with DreamHost before and they were charging me around $8.95 a month when I took out a 2-year plan. With them I get a good deal of $7.95 a month that too with annual plan. There is also no contract involved. I get unlimited disk space, unlimited MySQL databases, unlimited domains with one free included domain registration. I also get unlimited sub-domains and unlimited FTP accounts, and access to web-based FTP. This is a very good deal at least to me because other providers charge you extra for domain registration and have a cap on how many domains you can have on the same shared hosting package.

There is an old saying that basically says that it is a bad idea to go into business with your family. Well, I am here to tell you that sometimes old sayings are just not true. I did not open a shop with my wife or a contracting business with my son. I went into business online with VodaHost.

I did a lot of research before starting my company. I looked around before deciding on a web hosting company. I started with the ‘freebie’ web hosting first. But, I soon learned that this was not the path for me. There were just too many things that I did not know. And, if you do not pay for service then you do not get service with a web hosting company. But, I found a family with VodaHost. The customer service and tech reps all made me feel like part of their web hosting family. They were all so helpful and professional that it was almost too easy to get my website up and running.

Gotta like their support! They are prompt in answering my lazy questions. Got 5 sites hosted with them and never had more than 10 minutes of downtime in the one year I have been with them. Also there is unlimited MySQL and unlimited disk space. One catch is that there is no VPS hosting plan to upgrade to. But you may probably not need an expensive VPS and shared hosting should do just fine. Setting up Drupal on my site was a cake-walk and I never had any issues with that. Also the CPanel has fantastico built-in and with one click you can set up WordPress blogs too. PHP and Perl are both fully supported. I compared LunarPages $21.95 a month small business hosting plan with this company’s $7.95 a month plan that includes all the features at Lunarpages, at one-third the price. That’s clearly a No-brainer choice. I also compared them with DreamHost. With DreamHost annual plan you pay $9.95 a month. With the VH annual plan you pay only $7.95 a month for the same feature set.

Well my experience with VodaHost has been very good. I had been using Yahoo small business hosting package before, and I find VodaHost is a refreshing change for the better.

With VodaHost I get unlimited storage, unlimited transfer, unlimited emails, one free domain and more unlimited domains that too with my shared hosting package. If you are looking to switch from Yahoo then VodaHost are the best choice available. Their servers are within USA and not somewhere offshore. Support American companies and choose VodaHost.

After much deliberation, we chose VodaHost to maintain our corporate website. We use Joomla as our content management and VodaHost does a great job providing excellent support for the platform. Our site is updated by EDP personnel in our head office as well as branch offices throughout the country. Reliability and data security were our main concerns which VodaHost takes care of comprehensively. Their 99.9% uptime guarantee really gives us peace of mind. The volume of traffic to our site is enormous and the unlimited bandwidth that VodaHost offers us is a real life saver. Their customer support is really good and most of our queries were handled the same day. We have a lot of expansion plans for our site, but we already know that VodaHost has the technology in place to support all of them.

They are a great company. I don't even see the need to go on too much about them, being as I am not full of complaints and horror stories about their tech support or customer service. They have been reliable so far and that does deserve a good review. I have given my share of bad ones, believe me. I signed up a while ago and have not had any major issues with their service - to my surprise.. No web hosting company, ok, no company period, is going to provide immaculate service. If they could, there would be no competition. As a competitor, however, VH plays the game like professionals and their service has proven to be worth my money. I'll stick with them. yes..I can recommend.

I wanted to create another un-connected site that promotes and reviews my products (I sell T-shirts, cups, mugs, key chains, and jewelry) AND my friends' products too.

I hired a web designer. He was able to give me a well-designed 10-page site and a design for my blog. Now all I wanted was a good web host to host my site with. I read some reviews about them and decided to try them out.

I found that they have a great annual deal for hosting which works out to under ten bucks a month. I also registered my domain name with them (Free domain registration is included in the annual package).

I know many hosting providers soon disappear from the market, and I cannot count on their support. But they have been a reliable company.

My two sites have been on one of their servers for over a year now. Personally I couldn't ask for much more out of a host. The server has been stable, with one short couple short downtimes caused by malfunctioning scripts (nothing that they could prevent).

All such situations were dealt with properly, in a timely manner. I only needed to contact support on that special occasion to ask what was happening. Otherwise, the server was working fine so I had no reason to contact them for server related problems.

I remember that I did send an email to support once and I got an email back in straight away. I remember that I was quite impressed by the timely answer. Excellent service (and lots of space) for a bargain price.

In all, I'm very happy with the service. If things continue like this I see no reason why I would ever need to go with another host. I can comfortably recommend them.

My first testimonial EVER on the web!
Hi everyone!

For over two years I have been searching the web with a few intentions:

1. Find the best resources of information that ignite action within me and bring clarity and definition to my ideas and goals.
2. Observe trends of many leading websites, solutions providers, and software developer communities as well as their future releases and projects and how they display or distribute their information to world.
3. Sites where the answer that I was LOOKING for is RIGHT THERE!!! BAM!!
And finally,

4. Hosting Providers w/FREE website builder that offer LOW COST but MAX OPTIONS services that I CAN ACTUALLY USE without going "HUH, WHUH???" everyday causing me to repeat 1-3 on a weekly basis.

I am still impressed with their customer service. Yes, A very LARGE part of that customer service is provided by the forum members themselves! But that's what community and ecommerce is all about.

They take the best they can find to offer their customers and does the best job by far in making sure the customers have what they need. I, personally, feel that there is no obstacle that I cannot overcome with the help of the forum and customer service.

No...I have not been brainwashed, exploited, etc. I have had the hands on experience of starting from Ground Zero and working to produce what I expect to be a very profitable internet presence. I was set back by scam artists in the highest rank of scam artists. But, the key is to persevere!

I got treated like **** everywhere else because I had no clue as to what I was doing. Total newbie. I wasted money and time with other web hosting companies that were recomended by others.

Finding them was like finding gold! There's no problem that hasn't been answered within 1 to 2 days, there's no problem that hasn't been totally resolved as soon as I submit a ticket, and no problem solved where I didn't learn something new that I had to know!

Everyone is friendly, the price is too cheap for the service! The quality is outstanding... and I could keep going until I've written a 500 page E-BOOK full of compliments!!!! (GRIN!)

I am finding very it hard to believe, that there are some unpleasant reviews about voda host. What they offer is true. They have a wonderful, easy web building program, they have lots of extra bells & whistles to help make your website nice and professional. They do offer help, to build a site it is just cut and paste. I tried front-page, now that was confusing. With voda host, I had my first page up in a day, and that was because I was deciding on colors, writing, clipart etc. Some things were a little more involved where I had to do some reading to get things working properly, and when I needed help I received it. Those people that say the opposite probably have nothing good to say about anything or anybody or they are possibly a competitor trying to do sabotage.. I would not listen to the slander or foul language, they have nothing better to do with their time. I highly recommend them for web hosting. They have the best program fir the money, and it is very easy.

Whether building a website yourself is by necessity or a choice, BlueVoda and VodaHost will solidly assist and support you to make both a reality.

This is complicated stuff behind the scenes. It looks easy as you browse the web but it is complicated. Millions of people doing millions of things with millions of things that do millions of things.

I am a proficient writer, who was always thinking of getting web a website for my articles. However as I have no knowledge of HTML whatsoever, and don’t know much about web hosting I never did get about creating a website. Moreover I don’t have the time to learn much about HTML or web hosting.

Of course, I always had the alternative of hiring a website designer to create a website and to do my web hosting work for me. However to do all this, I have to have the money to hire a website designer. So my articles just lay stuck in my pen drives and computer, until I came across them.

When I stumbled across their service, I was really happy as it seemed to be an answer to all my futile thoughts of creating a website.

I have experienced very poor customer service from VodaHost. It is impossible to ever speak with a human, except in the rare instance that somebody at the help desk calls you when you submit a trouble ticket. The only time anyone ever called me was when I was first trying to set up my website.

They parked my domain name, which killed my website and my email, three days before my annual renewal payment was due and it took me the better part of a day to get it sorted out. The help desk was absolutely useless. When they finally put my domain back on line and told me it was up, I couldn't view the website or send/receive email. The help desk was unresponsive to my problem.

I ended up fixing the problem myself, when I discovered by a stroke of inspiration that I could access my website and and webmail if I used the IP address instead of the domain name...bingo...I had a DNS caching problem.

Once I paid for the second year of my personal business site, I suffered downtimes of OVER 40%! Support ticket was closed because the site was up at the time they looked at it, sent another ticket when I lost sales, closed that ticket since the issue was “duplicate”, phone support told me to submit more support tickets which were getting closed and THEN, when I went to the SUPPORT forums to ask where to find info to talk to a REAL person since no one was helping me, my post was deleted, as were the other posts asking about problems with my particular server (which it asks of you). I was banned from the forums for “complaining” and told to open yet another ticket which is STILL unanswered! While I just went to my site again and it was down for over another hour.

Brad Costello - the CEO of Vodahost called me today and fully explained what had happened. Errors of this sort are bound to happen from time to time with an organisation the size of Vodahost. They were quick to reverse the error and refund the $19.95 that was taken. However, because I am in the UK the initial amount refunded did not match what was taken. This was due to fluctuations in the exchange rate and nothing to do with Vodahost.

I repeat what I said in my earlier post, I have been with them for over 2 years now and although I was a complete novice at the start - I have always found the answers I have needed. After nearly a year of inactivity - I am almost ready to launch my website. I did not use BlueVoda choosing instead to use Dreamweaver which was something I had already dabbled with and liked, but I am not a designer and decided to take advantage of a ready made template site, which can [read more...]

Stay well away from this company and DO NOT repeat DO NOT entrust them with your card detail's. If you want to pay them anything use Paypal. If I were you, if they already have your card details - then request that they remove those details from their servers immediately. They CANNOT be trusted with them.

I was relatively happy with this company and was particularly impressed with their template support team, but I'm afraid thats as far as it goes.

I suddenly noticed that I had been invoiced for $19.95. I raised a ticket and asked what for? this was the reply:

This appears to be for a domain name registration for: eleni55.net Thank you, Brad

Trouble is - this had nothing to do with me - so I questioned it again. telling them I took a very dim view of companies who took unauthorised payments from my credit card.

They replied with this:

Apparently this was done by someone training a new employee, they forgot to

Two of my biggest pet-peaves with host companies is anything that is not user-friendly and also bait and switch tricks that are so prevalent, even with established companies. Therefore, I like them for these reasons, so far. Most importantly, its control panel is very easy to negotiate. I find that everything is logically laid out and user friendly. That's important and I appreciate that every time I use their c-panel. As for Point Two, I once used a host who's uploading software did not work with my Frontpage software, even though their site advertised that they supported Frontpage. (Which was why I chose them.) Their solution. Download this here program which you can then use to upload your site with. I did and the program worked great and was easy to use. The only problem was that it belonged to a third party who was only going to let me use it for 30 days and then I had to buy it. Bait and switch. If memory serves that program's two folder layout and performance was almost exactly [read more...]

Great Service

I am still working on improving the functionality and appearance of my site at printsetters.com, but Vodahost has been a godsend. The Soholaunch programme has enabled me to save several thousand pounds on having a similar site professionally produced, and i have done it without writing a single line of HTML.

The support ticket system is fantastic with every little problem I have had solved quickly.

The hosting deal is about half the price of hosting in the UK.

The software is cantly updated and improved and is probably the best on the market - yet it is free!!

I am so excited to finally have a website Before Voda Host, I could hardly turn a computer on, let alone purchase something of the internet, so I was a bit apprehensive at first. I never though I of all people would be able to own a website.

It was just so easy though. I registered the account in just a few minutes and started building my site that evening!! Voda Host were great. They sent me everything I needed to start building my site. They have excellent step by step instructions on anything I needed to know. Their online video tutorials actually show you, click by click how to create anything for your site.

I now have my very own website, on the internet. I even have a personalized email account for my site and my staff. The best part was it was as fun as it was easy. The forum people are great fun and the technical support centre staffs were keen to help me get online as quickly and smoothly as possible.
I will no doubt be adding more sites to my account.

I got vodahost back when their servers were fresh, support was a little less feisty, and the TOS did not require you to pay a yearly subscription even if you did not ask them to.

Since then alot has changed, Customer Service has gone down the drain, linking me to sites with profanities such as "a-hole" and "bitch" and "fucking," which are all aimed at the reader. These sites also contain very concerning phrases such as "break your legs" and "piece of shit." I am sorry to have to share such words with you.

Their support also takes several days to reply to questions in their independantly run (meaning that no externalities are involved) support database. It is very well to run your own database for support, providing you do not abuse it. Please reply to customers questions! And if you do so, do so APPROPRIATELY.

Their "TOS" or Terms of Service are very vague, offer the breaking of the contract with 7-days notice (or that was how short it was when I last looked,) and the [read more...]

I just wanted to Thank Bluevoda and Vodahost! I had tried SEVERAL other web building and hosting sites and was so disappointed. I was about to give up on opening a online store, then I stumbled onto Bluevoda and Vodahost. I was skeptical after all the other sites I had tried, so I spent a few months just playing with the Bluevoda site building software, and was really impressed with the web building software. So I decided to give Vodahost a try....I have never been disapointed! It has been a great experience! I had a computer crash and lost everything and wanted to start my site new, and they were there and within minutes they had taken care of my request. I love the customer forum where you can find support too. Support, Service....5 Stars! Thanks so much! Did I also mention affordable? You can not go wrong with Bluevoda and Vodahost!

On $95 a year plan.

Although there 'easy to use' web building tools have been highly criticised - it has to be said their BlueVoda website builder is good when you get to now how to use it. But on this note, it is not so 'easy to use'. Although no PC language or coding is required to build a website with this feature, it does rely heavily on the users ability to use desktop publishing software, which VodaHost seem to presume that everyone knows how to operate.

There prices are quite resonable and their other features and PHP packages are terrific and after practice most of their features do become easier to use. However this does not rid them of the fact that they used false advertising, for beginners their software is NOT easy to use.

Their technical team seems to consist of only of a few people. They are often inexperienced and provide little technical assistance when you have a problem - almost as if they copy and paste their replies to your problems from a book. Quite [read more...]

I found the support very useful. I still have some problems when trying to publish my pages, but I think that the problem is my connection to internet (during the day it becomes too busy thus slowing down and stoppi ng the connection).

A few weeks ago I was a complete know nothing… been struggling with using Dreamweaver; took the easy way out with templates and free websites… then I found Voda and can’t believe how easy it is to create and design something that I actually like without paying out thousands of dollars…

Owned a couple of .com.au domain names for a while and found web hosting was just so expensive here in Australia… very little offered in return for big money… then I found them along with their website builder and my world turned upside down in joy… here was the solution for me… even my boss who is webmaster of quite a few sites cannot believe what I have created and their deals on offer…

Not only did I find all this I found their Forum… what a fantastic community of people they all are… without you things would have been a lot harder… not that it was hard at all…

Each time I've contacted them for assistance regardless of the hour of the day, the representative has gone above their call of duty and provided wonderful customer service to ensure my needs are met not just as a customer but as an entrepreneur.

The level of assistance is wonderful. Their Customer Service is comparable to being the 'On-Star for the Web'. They have helped me out of many a challenge when my paid web-master has fallen short or my financial resources. Truly they have an awesome Costumer Support Group.

Voda promised "fanatical" support and customer "love" and care, affiliate "commissions", "reliable" hosting and at lest some "workable" web site managment interfaces and even a site builder.

In two years of my experience they did nothing of this kind.

What did they do in this writer's experience ?

1. NO SUPPORT. Their support is some sort of Nazi bunch of kapos who shout at you that you don't understand this and that, or pretending your English is no good for their staff. They didn't solve any issue for us in the period as reviewed.

2. NO COMMISSION. Their clocks register just-below-the-threshold affiliate traffic, and when they have to pay the 150 usd, the counter dies suddenly, and no matter how many of your affiliates pass through you, you are sure that you won't see the commission. When you demonstrate this fact to their personnel, they panic, they would call you on your mobile phone and start telling lies that even them find hard to believe. It's all on record.

I am on my 2nd year with Blue Voda/Voda Host. I really love the website builder, forum help, unlimited domain feature. HOWEVER.... with that said...
I am very disappointed with their Affiliate Program...thus far.
The Reason.....
I signed up an affiliate through my website affiliate link with no problem. I even used my credit card...no problem. Got a confirmation about the new signup...no problem.
The problem is I didn't get credit for the new affiliate signup. I have furnished all the information to the Affiliate support department over a week ago. Today I sent a 2nd request for a response.
I need to either remove all affiliate links to Voda Host or get this resolved. If it isn't resolved then there's a trust issue on if affiliates are getting paid on the up and up.

The results depend on if I move on to another web host. Problem is I used their Blue Voda website builder. I understand it's a version of NetObject's True Fusion website builder. Can anyone confirm?

A Very Happy Customer

I needed to change my web hosting service. I also have several clients that will be needing web hosting services in the near future. I made the decision to research the ideal company for my needs and my clients needs. Using the Internet I checked on many hosting services, looking closely at the ratings by current and former users.

My investigation led me to Voda. All of my research showed that they offered the options that I needed at an affordable price. Everyone, including their website, said that they offered exceptional service and support. I made my decision and began the task of setting up my new hosting service with the options that I needed. I also began transferring my current business website and two recreational websites over to the new service. Because I didn't plan it better, I made some mistakes that caused problems with my service. Frustrated, I began communicating with there support staff via their support ticket email service.

I'm new to the Webworld and never in my life would have thought I could build a website. I consider myself a technically challeged person and artistically not even close to drawing credible stick men but the Blue Voda webuilder has made me feel like a genius and the help and kindness of the member ans staff of the Voda Host Forum has raised my level of knowledge.

The Forum is one of the greatest assets of Voda Host, which by itself is already an incredible bargain. Upon searching the web I had tried a few other free webbuilders but BV was the only one that I found that really was created with the novice in mind. Kudos to them for a job well done. THey have a lively forum and a great support team that makes it easy to go about making a great site in very little time.

To those seeking a free webuilder and a great hosting service I recommend BV & VH as the best of the best. Try it yourself...it's worth the time.

Simply Put -- Read all the Negative Posts -- All that was said there has happened to me.

I Asked question about their services and they removed my post. They the "Generals" don't even know what products they offer. After questioning why they only used PHP4.4 and not 5.xx I got a response that 4.4 was the most stable -- well OK - but after you sign up you find out it's version 5.16. I paid a $30.oo Set up Fee. but after joining and getting my Welcome letter I find out I have to Configure my DNS. I don't know about you but when I have to Configure some thing it usually means setting something up!!! The last thing is that I paid for a dedicated IP address and it came up as shared. After 5 days, they finally without notice take down my site and make the changes.

My second post was a general question about using a easy and nice download program. The "General" responded with a Sarcastic response.

Ok, this is the best it gets I have to say! I'm an administrative assistant, and although I know quite a bit about computers and programs - I don't do this kind of thing all the time.

At first when I started my travel business I thought just having a freebie site was good enough. Although I worked very hard on the site, it just didn't look professional enough and I was limited on how I wanted it to look. So my search began for the right web hoster. Seems like when the question came up for "whats the best webhosting company" most choose the same company but to me it was so hard for me to weed through all the features and if you wanted more features you had to pay more money. Then came BlueVoda and Vodahost.

What a breath of fresh air. I downloaded the free builder...so impressive...easy to use....I could build my site the way I wanted it to be.

Be very wary of BlueVoda. I was drawn in by the advanced videos and Self-Boasting support team. After using their software and forums I am under the impression that they are nothing but a self-promoting dictatorship. They follow their own rules and are strictly forbode of any discussion regarding other software or help issues.

The mere fact of their self-imposed 'Military' ranking should give you some idea of how highly they think of themselves. Don't get me wrong, there are some VERY intelligent people on this site. And if your support question helps them in any way, they MIGHT help you.

Females beware!

I have looked heavily at the threads on the forums, and it is pretty apparent who gets priorities in responses. Also note that the membership catagory has been blocked out. Hmmm. Too many unpopular Generals????

I found the sales speel did not match reality - "easy to use" and "no programming knowledge needed" is simply not true. When I pointed this out to them, they took pains to point out to me that their Terms of Service contradicted their sales speel.

The support documentation is contradictory. Once can only try the software once signed up - which is when one finds the flaws. Many support docs are incorrect, and I spent days trying to configure the basics. Easy to use it is not. Customer support was slow. You only find this out once you've paid.

In my opinion, avoid.

Previous Host Provider: Yahoo! Business

Let's do some comparing. On Yahoo! I was paying $19.95 for cgi scripting, what a rip. Half of the scripts I tried to run wouldn't work because only a few Perl modules were available. Geezz... Yahoo! gives you Sitebuilder with their package. Another rip. Try working on more than 2 or 3 pages at a time with this utility, and your computer will give you a big thud as it crashes and freezes. There are so many bugs with this program that it's just sickening. I ended up having to buy a 3rd party website builder. Let's see what else.... Oh yes, TECH SUPPORT! or lack there of! Put in a ticket, and you're guranteed to wait more than 48 hrs for a reply. They do have a customer support number, however I've never had the patience to talk to anyone.

To answer the below response, this is a bunch of lies and if anyone wants to trust this guy, go ahead but it's at your own risk. My phone number is not fake at all, although I have since moved house. It is vodahost who has a pretend phone number with an answering machine at the other end. I recommend anyone who thinks of using vodahost, try to contact them before, and see if you can manage to speak to a person. My mistake is that I did not do any research before.

Where do I start, I guess at the begging. It all started in February when I was enticed with a free coupon from .net magazine in the UK, I visited the site and spent several hours going through it. I was a bit sceptical because I was raised to believe if it is too good to be true it usually is. So I downloaded there website builder and began my odyssey. Just to give you a bit of background I am travel agent of 20 years and pretty internet savy, but HTML, PHP etc… might as well be Chinese. I was attracted to there offer by there claim of no HTML to learn. So here is my review

a) You can not build your website in 30 minutes as advertised unless you are some type of web design guru. It took me 30 minutes just to read the tutorials. The design part is a consistent work in progress for me with constant updates and changes as and when the inspiration hits me. Saying that there blue site builder is very impressive and loaded with features.

Of sending out fake emails pretending to be PayPal, Ebay or a bank for
The sole purpose of capturing usernames and passwords for unauthorized
account access, this is highly illegal and Will, not should can get you
10 years in a very nice victorian prison cell.

This particular person who signed up with the name Miriam Grech from the
Stradivari Season, used the domain name jamesgrech.com, they signed up with
a P.O. box address and gave a fake telephone number, if you do a whois search
on the above mentioned domain name you will see what I mean.

We have traced the FTP logs to the same IP address that the purchase was
made from. The below review is their attempt to go on the offensive and
through up a barage of smoke.

We still have have kept copies of the fake "CHASE" bank HTML pages and have
notified CHASE about Miriam Grech.

Stay away - that is my advice. It is just a scam. I was tempted to join because I wanted to use a simple website builder, (for I had no idea how to design a website) and they offered one - but you can only use it if you have an account with them, so I got one. It seems that this vodahost is run by one guy who calls himself many different names so that he appears like a big company. After a while he started suspending my site for no apparent reason, and came up with all sorts of crap explanations. He said I was spamming and sent me emails that were supposedly attached to my site, then he sent me a file that he said was attached to my site - a file to chase credit card details of others. He accused me and threatened me. I asked him for a phone number to be able to talk to someone to sort this out becuase I hadn't done it, but instead asked me to fax a copy of my passport, and started abusing me. So most likely this guy is using people's websites for internet fraud, and then putting the [read more...]

Ive been using VH now for quite some time. I use the monthly program due to fiancial convenience.
I read all the posts here and thought - hmm - I could say all of that and more about Yahoo!.
As for service and care - I have been treated with the utmost respect and helped with design and scripts in the most timely maner.
I can see that reviews here are from those who were overlooked as was I at Yahoo! When I hosted with them I was treated like I didnt exist, and recieved virtually no help and or assistance...I may as well been deleted.
Vodahost is a wonderful small company that is just in its infant stage, and I belive they will grow much larger and offer many more benefits.
Its a good comfortable family type atmosphere where we all support one another and work to make out sites better and more productive!
Since Ive switched to VH my hits have more than doubled from other than VH views..lol..
Its a wonderful hosting company that here has been slashed by a disgruntled customer - [read more...]

DON'T go with vodahost.com

They just rip of your money and don't give what promise and if you try to complain they ban you from the forum, DON'T answer your tickets or e mails and put your site as suspended WITH A LINK POITING TO THEIR SITE!!!

No explanation, no nothing.

I report them to paypal and they told me they get a lot of complains to vodahost.

Stay away from vodahost.

Stay far away from this company

" I just lost 120$ to them on Sunday. They did not turn on my account and they surreptiously charged me 20 dollars on my credit card for what they said was a free domain name.

In the meantime, I had a chance to research them (duh, after I paid). Threads like this READ THIS THREAD BEFORE PURCHASE
http://www.webhostingtalk.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=405796

I asked them since they hadnt turned on my account and overcharged for what was to be free I am not satisfied (Remember Big Bold Letters 100% guaranteed satisfaction). Figured it was only a few hours they would reverse the transaction.
They break out the terms of service with a lecture about morality.
Crazy to do business like that. Read that thread and the way they talk to people. The owner asked if one poster had been breastfed as a child?? That attitude was seen in some of my exchanges. I am just going to chalk it up to a loss. Dont make the same mistake as me.

Well I signed up for a year of hosting with them, their page was too too flashy for me to refuse. They do offer alot more than most at a very cheap price 94.50 for a whole year of hosting. I had problems with my shopping cart and after tracking the problem down to vodahost after about 3 days of working for a fix. I issued a support ticket, no reply for 2 days now, nothing, then I went to their so-called support forum, and said "someone here please help me if you can...I explained the problem AGAIN, and added that their support tickets get answered way too slow and I get a cheesy answering machine when I try to call, which by the way I have not been able to do for the last month and a half, anyway I did not curse or say anything that was not true, inside the forum. I went back about an hour later to see if I had any replies to my problem, well guess what? They banned my ip address from the forum. So even tho they offer alot of features and space, the support is for crap, there I [read more...]

These guys are unhelpful and rude on the phone, George sounds like Napoleon Dynamite, he even makes the sounds, and as entertaining as that is it is not helpful when trying to resolve issues.
