Top 10 Web hosting Companies

Today I visited http://www.top10hostinglist.com/, I wanted to see who is at the top. It was surprising to see that my dear friends ipower.com were at 7th. I could not believe it. How this come a bad service at 7th. Anyhow, actually I wanted to see companies like lunarpages.com there in top 10. Unluckily I was not able to find it.

Why I said this, that I was disappointed to not finding lunarpages.com in top 10, because I think they deserve it to be at top, at least I wanted to see them there in top ten. Because:

they :

  • Got superb control panel called cPanel, very easy to use, however nothing is perfect but it is better then any platform, I have worked on.
  • they got great and very friendly and more, professional Support. I never wait more than two minutes in que to be responded.
  • If you want to see the solution, please try the 24 hour Support of Lunarpages.com, Great.
  • Offline/email support, very quick and positive. If I compare to ipower.com, My God don’t ask about it!.
  • I am hosting my website lakho.com at lunarpages since last three years, and during this period I never have major or minor outage.
  • there packages are very reasonable and compatible with any top providers.

Thanks Lunarpages, I am very proud to say that I am hosting on a great, top quality, and reliable hosting company.

If you are looking for a great hosting services, I think you should try lunarpages.com. You will not be dissappointed.

An example of “bad” hosting and their Support

Few readers or competitors might have noticed that lakhosoft.com was dropped in almost all search engines. Let me provide you details about the mishap.

 I am using hosting of iPower.com, initially they were using vDeck 1.0 program, then they started changing it to vDeck 3.0. About four months ago. During this transition lakhossoft.com faced lot of small outages. However, I kept my site up-to-date and I brought my site lakhosoft.com on top 10 position of all search engines.  During last four months their support was very bad and very slow, believe me I never got response three hours before on online chat service, I used to wait hours and hors to be answered. Even if I was lucky and found some one after three four hours, but they never gave SOLUTION. At the end I corrected the faults myself.

What was reason of recent outage?

Actually, thanks to some one who visited my lakhosoft.com via an strange referrer. It surprised me., that visitor came on my site via “WordPress.lakhosoft.om”. I remember that I never created such a link or sub domain. To find out, I put this address in browser and what I found that actually it was pointing to my lakhosoft.com. As I was very careful to avoid any duplication of contents, this scenario alarmed me, and then started investigation. During this investigation, finally I found that what ever you type between http:// and lakhosoft.com it was directing me on the home page of lakhosoft.com.

I contacted ipower (hosting provider of my site, note: it was almost impossible to get them live, so I send them message via offline support). After 24 hours I received response that my domain is set to wildcard (*.lakhosoft.com). That means if your domain is set with wild card all miss-spelled or any word before your domain will direct the visitor to your site.  I found it very good but because I am a search engine optimization service provider and SEO experts, though will be negative as far as Search Engines are concerned. However I discussed with Google Experts at webmasters central discussion boards of Google. In fact they asked me to remove it ASAP to avoid distribution of PR between various pages and more to avoid the Google’s penalization.

 After above suggestions from experts I asked ipower to remove the wild card and to resolve this issue my site was remained offline maximum time during last two weeks. But they never solved my problem, every day I was losing the position in search engines and it was making me very sorry about the selection of my hosting service. Yesterday, I took lead and asked ipower to stop their efforts and let me my own. After this, I went inside the account and perform checks step by step. Finally after three hours I was able to disable the so called wild card.

So here it is, my website is up and working very fine. Thanks to my team and their expertise that makes me to resolve such a issue which ipower, a large hosting provider was failed.

No problem, as far as search engine position is concerned I would bring it back with in a week.

Please if you are thinking for new hosting service, please think 100 times before selecting one for yourself, otherwise you might face same or alike problems and you might not have team like mine.

Battelle – On The Link Between Search and Branding: customers = marketers?

“First, they are noticing that when they run brand advertising both online and off, searches for their brands increase. Second, they are noticing that when searches for their brands increase, sales (or at least valuable, measureable leads) follow. And they certainly want searches for their brands to increase. But […] they don’t control….”
