    I started hosting my websites using this hosting company hostingsquared.com.au (no longer online). It was one of my online friend's hosting site.

    But when he decided to leave the hosting business I switched to other host, dinohost.com.

    Who was your first host? and why did you leave them?

    ^ Why did you change your host, please mention that too.

    That is the main reason of this thread.

    My first host was HostMonster. I was very happy with them, but I had to move because I just had WAYY to many sites to still be using a shared server ;)

    The first web host i personally used was a company called MP Hosting. Used them for many years then suddenly they dissappeared from the planet. The site was still running however there was no replies to e-mails, phone calls. The server load got worse and worse as the automated billing system signed people up and eventually after about 3 weeks of trying to find an employee I packed up shop and left.

    My first host was avagoo.com which would win awards for its poor customer service, slow servers, overselling so much that the servers couldnt............serve!

    I soon learnt that the best server is having your own server to be honest, thats if you have the knowledge and time(plenty of it).

    My first was and still is actually, Lunarpages. My site is dead now, but only because it was hacked back in April. I admit that I don't know a lot about what files are supposed to stay and what files can be deleted. I asked them if there was any way to reset my account. They said no. I had to manually delete a whole bunch of files. I'm still not sure if I deleted all that I could or if I deleted any that I shouldn't have. So my site just sits there.

    If you need any help with your hacked site. Give me a PM and we can go thru it and get it back up and running if you wish.
