Matt, I have quoted you below. Does this mean you will be able to charge those customers who are using more bandwidth , cpu, etc We have learned that Linux I/O tracking, and especially disk I/O tracking is near impossible to track. This makes it VERY difficult to tell exactly which processes are eating up resources on the disk. We have solved this issue now thanks to Linux’s main man himself Andrew Morton who wrote a patch for our kernel specifically for us.

I think is great value and very reliable. Service and support are excellent too and we do appreciated this because we know this isn't typical. I want to add to the comments about CPU limitations. The database behind our website is our asset. It is absolutely critically important to us. We make regular backups (in addition to those done by It is now impossible to make a mysql database dump without exceeding the CPU allocation. This has the effect of taking our website down for 10 minutes each time we make a backup. The "This Account Has Exceeded Its CPU Quota" error is shown. Obviously we cannot continue with this situation and we are genuinely sad that we are having to investigate other providers. I wanted to add this comment because I want it to be clear that the CPU allocation is a real issue and will cause us to switch to another provider.

I have been with blue host for a good many years. I was happy until lately. I have been moved twice in the last year. The site just crawls. I can't even open the C Panel. I have up graded to a hi out put CPU server. My site has a 1000 users I have to try and keep them happy. Blue host has given good customer support however I need speed. We will see how it goes on this one last chance. I will report back after the move. I have had 3 sites hosted here.

exactly Marcus!!! that's what my entire week of meetings have been about! it's either "pay $6.95 for 'cheap hosting'" or "pay $300 for a dedicated server hosting solution" i can't even say i'll pay 60 bux for some uptime and speed, because noone (that i've seen) offers it. this hosting game is getting stupid. it's like everything else, printers, cpus, gaming consols etc. it's a nitch market for a while, turns out to be a truely great thing for a little while until everyone jumps on the band wagon trying to do the same thing and ruins it. turns it into a pricing battle that no-one can stop and leaves little run to do anything, risking going chapter 11 more over, where's the leverage? it's not like we can say "my site's been down for 4 hours, if it happens again i'm gone" cause in reality, who cares. there's 20 of "me" waiting in line to sign up for this service so for now there seems to be nothing the consumer can do about it! at such a low price point there is no leverage to do anything. BH wouldn't care if i left. what's 6.95 to them!! like Marcus said ... let us pay you more for better service!! i would LOVE to pay $50 for a less cramped server. with that said, will BH ever offer a dedicated server solution?? it's been really hard these past few months trying to defend my hosting company to my bosses until i'm blue in the face (getting it... BLUE lol) as it's going down for hours on end at our most busiest time of year. i don't have the resourced to even pull out and start somewhere else if i even wanted to. and even if i did... where would i go?? it's all the same shared hosting game with vertual servers and such!! and i do feel blue host is one of the best out there, so if they can't get the job done, what now?? there's no where to go. i've always believed in the "you get what you pay for" adidg and i'd love to pay a bit more to get a bit more!!
