Just wanted to thank Hosterbox and Matt for their service. I'm a novice in terms of building a website - just registered a couple of domains today.
Are there any good online references that you'd recommend for building a website? Looking forward to your reply.

Thanks in advance!

I have my domain on Hosterbox now. The customer service has been great, and I didn't even have to pay them anything :) There web building tool's were very easy to use. Just giving a heads up for anyone thinking about using hosterbox.

I have used webhostingpad which was horrible IMO, poor customer service and go daddy which offers free web hosting but they put adds on your site.

After signing up, my account was created really quickly. I was able to get my scripts up and running immediately. The control panel has all the standard management tools I expected, and my web pages load reasonably quick. Haven't noticed any lags or downtime since getting set up earlier this month. Great job!

As promised, here is some feedback I have for HOSTERBOX.

I bumped into this thread along with other ads on website. To give some information on me, I own a business and never had a website. All this techy stuff was/is very new to me - particularly making a website (Helll, I learned what domain name was recently). Anywho, I can go on about this but long story short, Matt, at Hosterbox is truly AMAZING. He is VERY professional, understands you, and helps you through out. Their prices are reasonable for hosting (there may be cheaper but I am happy given the service). Matt has probably spent 6 hours with me at least in total offering all support. One MAJOR "flaw" is that there is no way to call them, but he said they are working on it. BUT, that did NOT stop him from giving the service he did. Also, they give templates with website for free, which is AWESOME, because you get kick started. He knew that I did not know how to make a website but he NEVER pushed me to pay him to make one. He rather encouraged me to make one myself saying " You can do that as it is not very hard" - this attitude will do him good in long run. He only charged me small fee for editing some flash work, which I think was reasonable given all he has done for me.

I have family members that will need a website in future and I will recommend him without any hestitation. If you need any help, look him on on here and this guy will amaze you with his attitude, services and what he does for people! * * * * * */ 6 stars for him :)

Thanks for helping me making my website and for ALL the encouragement you gave me. I have a website because of you!

Hi, first, thank you for the free hosting, this is a great way to try out my personalized website!

Quick question for you. I just installed wordpress and while installing one of the themes I get the following error message: The uploaded file exceeds the upload_max_filesize directive in php.ini.

Is there a restriction on the file size upload?

Thanks!

I've been corresponding with Matt over email the past few days and he was nice enough to help me out via chat today. In many cases, he went ahead and did the technical stuff for me.

Thanks so much Matt!

This is a great option for anyone who is looking to host a small personal website with plenty of control and options at absolutely no costs. It is also true that their support is quick and very good. Though I only have used them for just over a day. I absolutely recommend it to those that are skeptical.

Just another shout out to Matt and the free service he offers.

I don't get a ton of traffic, but as a small and hopefully growing business, the service he offers is very helpful.

FAQ:

How long will it take to approve my Free account?

It can take a few minutes or hours. All of our orders go through a 2+1 optional step system. Our first is an automated service called Maxmind that can validate and confirm that the client is not fraudulent or using a proxy, if it does detect some what of an anomaly with the order it will call the client and provide them with a security code that they will have to enter in to validate their order and information entered. Finally the orders are manually checked and approved. The phone validation does not happen regularly and is only there when the fraud risk score is above 8 out of 10.

We do this in order to reduce the amount of abusers or ill intentioned users on our servers which correlates into better server performance, IP's that are listed positively, better server reliability and finally less maintenance which greatly reduces the cost of web hosting for our clients. Its just one of the steps we take in order to provide the best possible web hosting services.

How many Free accounts can I have?

We only allow 1 Free account per person.

Are Domain names free?

No, domain names have a cost and are not provided free. You can however use your own domain with the Free trial plan or register one at a small annual fee. Sub-domains are provided for free.

first of all it wasnt a negative comment, it was a question. my bad if I forgot the question mark at the end. calm down

and anyways keeping negative comments is not a way to run a business. i was just wondering if in fact it was a brand new business or like many others, a new division of an older company.

anyways, not having me on board for the deal is no harm for you since this is a free deal but whatever

Are you overselling tons?

It just looks like your just assuming and we have strict regulations about overselling. As for negative comments we don't mind constructive comments that might be negative but comments that assume something about any service or any product is not helpfull. And even tho we have had (me and you) a rocky start we would still love for you to try us out! :)


Thanks in advance

well like I said, the 2nd post, I forgot a question mark, and what i meant is really to know about your background, if you are backed by a solid company, no negative comment intended.

and first post again, not an assumption, I asked it as a question as most hosting services who do offer free hosting are overselling like crazy.

You might want to add in your OP about your strict overselling restrictions, it will keep RFDers interested!
