On Sunday Hostingsthatsuck.com determined to retract their approval of Zyma.com.
The unique submit is gone, although I nonetheless have a display shot. I think like a number of different those that select to advertise this host, hostingsthatsuck.com had their free internet hosting account closed down final month. Now that the gravy practice is over, the completely happy ideas go away. As a result of regardless of the destructive critiques that got here in October 2011, Hostingsthatsuck.com didn’t disclose this e mail then.
“On October 4th one of many servers (panda) in our community skilled a critical software program fault, which consequently result in an outage lasting a complete of 10 days. Our engineers have been working arduous to resolve the issue, and we at the moment are happy to say that situation has now been completely resolved and that no knowledge loss has occurred.

Briefly Khuram lied to me about deleting hostingsthatsuck.com internet hosting account and associates program. He said the next on my first submit:
Fairly frankly, we have been utterly unaware that hostingsthatsuck.com have been being dishonest of their evaluate. We consider that folks ought to write correct and trustworthy critiques about internet hosting corporations, whether or not it’s good or dangerous, which is why we’ve got revoked hostingsthatsuck.com affiliate license with us, in addition to eliminated their web site from our servers.
- 1 If that’s true, why did hostingsthatsuck.com get the above e-mail?
- 2 What did hostingsthatsuck.com miss?
If that’s true, why did hostingsthatsuck.com get the above e-mail?
It actually didn’t hassle me a lot that Khuram lied to me, I just about figured he did since till this Sunday there was an endorsement web page for zyma.com on hostingsthatsuck.com. What bothered me was the shortage of disclosure on Hostingsthatsuck.com’s half till February 2012. They did it for what quantities to peanuts in affiliate charges. In any case how a lot are you able to squeeze out of lower than $10 a yr cost? In contrast to your so referred to as prime 10 websites, hostingsthatsuck.com can promote anybody that contacts them. In any case that’s what Zyma.com did, they despatched me the identical actual invite that they despatched hostingsthatsuck.com.
As an alternative of proudly owning as much as their errors they determined to throw an insult my approach, with out referring who “a grumpy blogger named Benjamin” was, that might be me.
“As talked about by a grumpy blogger named Benjamin on one other web site, Zyma internet hosting is a comparatively new and only a small firm as in comparison with different gamers like Godaddy or 1and1. Benjamin believes that this web site shouldn’t give suggestion to a brand new host and we should always let the large corporations have all of it. We disagree with this reasoning for not recommending an organization, and we nonetheless consider that being a smaller firm additionally means a internet hosting firm could possibly take higher care of their clients. So to any indignant blogger who believes our technique is completely flawed, we advise you stick together with your massive corporations like 1and1 and we want you good luck.”
I really like how they name me out by identify, however they did not reference this website or the 2 posts about Zyma.com. But I’m a grumpy individual? I’m fairly positive I used to be absolutely caffeinated once I wrote each submit coping with them. With no lack of espresso I’ve no purpose to be grumpy. Truthfully I wish to assume I strategy subjects like this with some degree of satire. However the two posts I wrote about zyma.com appear dry with regard to any type of emotion. However what else can Hostingsthatsuck.com do when I’m writing counter posts, certainly using precise details just isn’t the easiest way to counter my posts. Like clarify to me the place it’s I stated I don’t assume new hosts ought to get a suggestion.
Maybe Hostingsthatsuck.com are Grumpy Bloggers? In any case that they had a 10 day outage and possible misplaced their free internet hosting account final month.
What did hostingsthatsuck.com miss?
As said they omitted that this was a brand new firm again in 2011. However there have been plenty of different issues they didn’t do. Like inform you what area they’ve hosted with them. How a lot assets they have been utilizing. As an alternative of giving actual knowledge, they gave cropped display photographs that gave little element and common info that would just about cowl any internet hosting firm.
Publish from final yr when Zyma was trolling for publicity:
Publish from this yr to see the place they have been now:
If I’m presupposed to keep away from the brand new hosts, than hostingsthatsuck.com are purported to keep away from the previous hosts? Frankly they don’t get the say on who I do a evaluate on, simply as a lot as I don’t get a say on who they attempt to peddle on anybody that involves their website. This was not a matter of if this host was new or previous, small or huge. It’s a matter of ethics. The writer for Hostingsthatsuck.com that wrote the Zyma.com publish select to utterly ignores the truth that wouldn’t assist end in a sale, and that was the truth that this host was new. They select to not disclose til now that they acquired an e-mail concerning the down time in October 2011. So significantly why did it take this lengthy to share an e-mail from October 2011?
So is Hostingsthatsuck.com proper about me considering new corporations shouldn’t be endorsed?
New corporations have an enormous problem of bringing in clients than say an organization that may afford to run commercials in the course of the Tremendous Bowl (i.e. Hostgator) or run full web page advertisements in In style Mechanics (i.e. 1 & 1). Hostingsthatsuck.com used the trick of telling you to seek for “Zyma sucks”, and yeah there have been none on the market on the time. Aside from different individuals making an attempt to tug the identical tips as hostingsthatsuck.com. Hostingsthatsuck.com makes it some extent to be within the prime of search outcomes for “(host identify right here) sucks”. Not a lot to offer particulars about an organization sucking, however to get consumers to enroll with the corporate for what could also be peanuts like Zyma.com or massive pay like Hostgator.com.
I make it an effort with any assessment of a brand new host to level out that if they’re new, that shouldn’t be standards to make use of towards the corporate. New corporations stand to lose greater than older and larger rivals with the lack of a single buyer. Which means they’ve extra cause to work on holding a buyer. To not point out there are giant previous corporations like Burst.internet that I counsel avoiding just like the plague. This needed to cope with disclosing particulars like that they had been contacted by zyma.com to do a evaluation, and that they have been new.
Again once I made my prime 10 listing for locating a number, I made my feeling clear on new hosts July 10, 2011:
On a aspect word a brand new firm is just not a nasty factor; all of us have to start out someplace. For this reason I like to recommend that on the preliminary enroll that you simply do not more than 30 days the primary time round, and join extra time afterward. Additionally a brand new firm could also be extra desperate to work to maintain what you are promoting, the place as a big institution might think about you extra of a quantity.
The entire looking for dangerous issues about Zyma.com was flawed as a result of there was nothing adverse out because of the reality it was a brand new host. Lack of (Zyma.com sucks) doesn’t imply that the host was good, nor does it imply they’re dangerous.
However even when this “(host identify) sucks” is used on previous / massive hosts hostingsthatsuck.com gross sales pitch ignores precise details. There has not been a number but that they’ve beneficial the place I used to be capable of finding extra unfavourable feedback utilizing the identical standards “(host identify) sucks)” simply going over the primary few pages I can discover extra unfavourable posts than what they are saying there are. By no means thoughts their declare consists of all search outcomes. They need you to look no additional, I would like you to look past what they are saying.
I need to make it clear once more:
I wouldn’t have an issue with Hostingsthatsuck.com being profitable off affiliate packages.
I should not have an issue with Hostingsthatsuck.com referring individuals to new hosts.
I do nevertheless have an issue with hostingsthatsuck utilizing junk logic to make a buck, particularly once they ignore the details.
