You know how many business owners created their website without proper research and ended up with web hosting from hell! It is very important to review a web host and ensure that they don’t have too many negative feedbacks before you start building your website.
Thinking about choosing MyHosting.com to take care of your website hosting needs? Here is what expert designers recommend you do first – read as many reviews as you can about MyHosting on the Internet!
You can do your due diligence for MyHosting.com by searching for “myhosting sucks” or “myhosting complaints“ on Google. You can also try “myhosting bad“, “I hate myhosting“, “MyHosting sux” and other variation of misspells. In the beginning, when we did the above searches in 2009, there were no bad reviews about this host.
That does not mean you can now take you credit card and get a hosting plan, yet.
MyHosting BBB Accredition
The next thing you may want to check is if they are Better Business Bureau accredited. If they are accredited, what would their rating be?
Is MyHosting BBB accredited? Yes, they are rated A+ at BBB. This is a plus point for MyHosting.
Complaints about MyHosting.com
Initially when we did the searches using Google in 2009, the logic of no-bad-review-means-host-is-good means MyHosting.com is almost perfect! With no or little complaint whatsoever. If you asked us back then about how good is MyHosting.com, our answer were that “they are one of are the best web hosting according to our criteria”.
Unfortunately, the negative reviews started pouring in soon after our first review. As you can see in our comments section below and the searches above, they no longer have clean track record on Google search result page.
By using the same search method, we even found some forum threads accusing MyHosting to be a fraud and a scam with their hosting plans, and even affiliate program (Check out this forum thread at Digitalpoint).
To be honest, we make money from you buying a hosting plan (affiliate sales) on this site. Thus we do have some experience with the affiliate program at MyHosting. Many of the claims about the high sale reversal also happened to us. If they can treat their sales people (affiliates) poorly, they can do the same to customers too.
So would we recommend MyHosting?
We have tried many hosting plans since 2001. We can confidently say that Hostgator (HG) has been the most reliable and provides the best value-for-money. HG offers the same if not better features and functionalities as MyHosting.
