    @The Forum Heroes is an excellent hosting service. We've been with him for a long time and have had good experiences. He's very friendly and helpful and almost always responds to queries swiftly.

    Yes @Amaury likes Forum Heroes. If you have his standards, you may like them. Pl visit the thread cited by @tajhay and have a look at opinions, especially the ones posted by @Amaury - you will see why he likes them so much :p

    You can't base you using or not using a host on the words of others, whether positive or negative. You need to try it yourself and see if it is the right host for you.

    @Amaury yes that is true but i have seen some negative feedback for them quite a few times and i trust bluehost more because of their professionalism, they have a site where you can look at plans, a phone number where you can call and talk to more than one person or you can just chat with them through text. i have talked to them and bluehost just feels right for me.

    @Amaury - if he is going to try every host recommended here, its going to be a long long road. I think he has to keep a watch out on the genuine reviews and pick the ones that has the least toxic ones. Especially pay attention to the ones that are detailed.

    I think if its a 'single man operation', then research becomes very important.

    The forum heroes did not even have a website for me to go to, if im looking for a hosting company, i would like a website to see so i can look at their plans call them for support if i need any.

    Just remember.. cheap hosting is cheap for a reason... You get what you pay for.

    As for going with us or not, we have stopped offering smaller packages with the exception of current clients. We are currently only accepting new clients with larger board of 500k or more posts. Best of luck with your search.

    Wait, so you don't look at reviews when you search for hosting? What about other things such as cars, pc programs and any item you may be looking to buy?

    Amaury I'm going to be straight up with you here and say that statement sounded completely off the wall. When I was looking for a new host for our sites I definitely did not go blindly trying every host to see if I "liked" them. You have to look at, you know, "user" reviews or any input you can dig up on ANY host. I went through pages, upon pages and searches on WHT to make sure there wasn't an overwhelming negative to the host we were looking at, luckily we only found one and it was handled professionally in a timely manner.

    Moral of the story, do some research on the subject of hosting. Sorry in advance if this sounds harsh, I don't intend it this way.

    Not at all, Steve. You do it constructively.

    @Nights is the one who made the decision to move to Mike. We were originally with Bluehost from the very beginning, which was the hosting @Sean B. chose when he created the site and it working just fine for us until near the end when we started having some pretty big issues, even before we moved from vBulletin to XenForo. Nights then switched us to HostGator, I think, and that was worse. So he then switched us to Mike's former company and shortly after @The Forum Heroes contacted him and offered him a better deal, I believe.

    Looks like you already found a host. I still wanted to recommend NuWebHosting which does have a site and is very professional. Have used them over a year on my xenforo board and experienced no issues. Uptime is great and plans are cheap. Good luck.
