MobileMe Sucks

Nov 20,2011

You know how many Mac users who are publishing their websites using iWeb started panicking when they heard that the late Steve Jobs told an iWeb user to start looking for another website builder and a new host? The lack of iWeb love from Apple, further strengthens any rumor that iWeb and MobileMe would not be developed further. In June 2011, Apple confirmed that iWeb publishing, MobileMe Gallery, and iDisk will all disappear as the company sunsets its current online service in favor of iCloud.

Publishing iWeb via FTP

So if you still have your iWeb websites, it is time to move to an iWeb FTP hosting. iWeb featured built-in support for publishing to other third-party web hosts with FTP, although MobileMe is the default host. Therefore, you do have the power to publish to another hosting company.

Here are some reasons why an FTP hosting is better than MobileMe.

  • MobileMe is no longer accepting new subscribers so forget it if you are just starting out to use MobileMe.
  • If you’re a current member of MobileMe, you can access everything only until June 30, 2012. It is time to panic, or lose everything.
  • MobileMe doesn’t support any server side language such as PHP but most FTP web hosts do.
  • MobileMe does not give enough storage, and this is not good if you are serious about your website.
  • iCloud is Apple’s new cloud service to replace MobileMe, but sorry, iWeb publishing is not part of the services to be offered. Did we say you should panic?

Free website hosting is definitely not for you if you are serious about having a website, ecommerce site or a blog. Here are 10 reasons why you should avoid free hosting.

  1. Free or dirt cheap website hosting attract spammers, scammers, phishers and hackers. These low-lifes of the WWW might end up on your shared server, and can trigger many kinds of problems.
  2. Lengthy URLs, with the free web host’s name in them. This doesn’t instill much confidence in prospective buyers or potential customers. How do you like a URL like this:



    https://lorainenor9913.webs.com/apps/blog/show/7057639-5-commonly-asked-questions-about-domain-name-registration-service-in-simple-layman-terms (sorry we had to cut the URL shorter to fit this page).

  3. Support is, at best, not very friendly or quick to respond. At some free web hosts, it’s practically non-existent. Need phone support? Want a live chat to talk about a technical problem? Dream on.
  4. Space and bandwidth given to internet websites by free hosting companies are usually quite little.

You know how so many people ended up with a bad web host and jeopardized their business because of that? If you came to this page, you probably have decided not to make the same mistake of choosing a web host that sucks. Based on our research, there is no such thing as the best web hosting and there is no perfect web host. iPage Hosting is no exception.

iPage Web Hosting: The Advantages

Here are why so many people are using iPage to host their websites, making iPage one of the top 10 most popular web host today:

  • Cheapest price compared to other popular web hosts
  • Best value for all the included features
  • Easy-to-use & beginner-friendly Site-builder for quick website creation
  • Host multiple domains – you may start with one domain at first, but most people will want to get more domains later on, so no need to get a new hosting plan.
  • Free domain included – if you are new, save the hassle of configuring DNS settings at a different domain name registrar like Godaddy or Namecheap.

iPage Web Hosting: Disadvantages

This is where some people said “ipage sucks”, wrote about “ipage complaints” and spread the words that “ipage sux”.

  • Sub-par billing system
  • No option to upgrade to VPS or dedicated hosting
  • Customer support although fast and polite, is not the most knowledgable


Why Mac Web Hosting Sucks

Sep 1,2011

We have had some people asking for a review for Mac hosting services. To put it is simple words – Mac website hosting sucks, and here is the main reason why.

“Mac Hosting plans are many times more expensive than Linux or even Windows web hosting.”

Here are some common myths about Mac website hosting:

  • Mac-compatible or Apple-compatible hosting is hosted on a Mac or Apple server
  • Mac-friendly hosting is hosted on Mac or Apple server

Believe it or not, most of the mac-compatible and mac-friendly hosting are not even using Mac servers. So why are people paying much more to use them? Educate yourself about your hosting options and you can make your own wise decision.

Mac hosting is a myth. Just choose any good Linux hosting like Hostgator

The Truth about Mac Hosting

If you are a Mac user, let us help you get the facts straight about web hosting – there is no exclusive need for web hosting for Mac OS users. You do not need a special Mac web hosting!

What is Web Hosting

The hosting server acts like your house on the World Wide Web. It is where all your website files reside. When someone knows your address (i.e domain name), they will come to the house (i.e using a web browser) and you can show them around. Every once in a while you either have to clean the site (maintenance and updating of the files).

You can use any web hosting company because your website will be hosted on the server. You can build your web pages (or house as in the web hosting analogy above) using Adobe Dreamweaver for Mac and save the files with their respective extensions such as HTML, PHP etc. Use Fetch or an FTP program to transfer your files to the server.

Are you considering Fatcow ratingFatcow for your website, but have heard mixed reviews about Fatcow? We do not blame you for being more confused after reading and listening to any Fatcow review. We will be upfront and straight to the point from the beginning – if you want a website provider with absolutely zero negative feedback, and tech support that solves all your hosting problem within 5 minutes, then you should not proceed with Fatcow. Read our alternative hosting options below for recommendation. If you want a web hosting that doesn’t care if you upload 55,681 MP3 songs or images to your web hosting space; then DO NOT get the hosting plan from Fatcow because you will quickly get your account suspended.

However, if you mostly want an affordable PHP/MySQL hosting, with free domain name and beginner-friendly website Builder, you will like Fatcow just fine.

Some say Fatcow Hosting scams or Fatcow sucks? Saw some Fatcow.com issues, Fatcow complaints and bad customer experiences? Can these negative reviews be trusted? Heard some horror stories about their limitations?

Here is the truth. According to a study conducted by America’s premier customer services research firm, TARP, customers are more likely to speak about a company when things go wrong rather than when they go right. On average, customers are twice as likely to talk about a bad experience as they are to share a positive one. So we can safely say that for every negative comment about Fatcow, there are two more good Fatcow reviews we did not hear about.

Fatcow is BBB accredited Fatcow's parent company EIG is rated A+ by BBB

Attention small business owners in UK!

You know how people who tried UK web hosting companies said these web hosts suck or “bloody” unreliable compared to the hosting companies from the US? We simply believe that this is just a matter of supply. There are just too few companies based in the UK so each of them has to perform well to meet the demand. Another factor is the labour cost in the UK which is higher thus customer support cannot compete with the US and International hosting companies. On the other hand, we also believe small companies should not try to build websites by themselves and expect great result in return. Try using a web development company or find a more professional website design hosting solution.
