"I Love Brinkster"on by ibhosted
Pros Good Prices. Webmail. Good uptime, Support, Free Domains, GREAT Rererral Program
Cons The file manager is strange?. I heard they are releasing a new one soon.
Summary Good Prices. The best webmail I have ever seen (similar to business Exchange Webmail). Good uptime, Nice Support team that answers the phone. I have used, Verio, Godaddy, APlus, Bluehost. My Clients like Brinkster the best. They also have the BEST Referral Program out there. You get 50%!!! So i get 50% of the package price everytime I refer a client to Brinkster.
Pros Webmail; Web Builder; Linux; Windows; Code Bank; Forums; Knowledge Base and so much more.
Cons The free service is not as robust as the paid service.
Summary At first I tried out the free service with Brinkster, and enjoyed the free email account I got with them, as well as the ability to try out some of their services. I soon had some questions which were easily answerable with the Knowledge Base, and some that were quickly answered by their Live Help!
I love checking out the 'Code Bank' for fun pieces of code to try out on my own site, and using the forums to converse with other Brinkster customers. I would suggest Brinkster to anyone from beginner to professional!
Pros SQL Server, Data Size, PRICE, Multiple Domains
Cons Not a real registrar, uptime lately
Summary I have used Brinkster for almost 3 years now. Up until about a month ago uptime was really good. Not sure what changed recently, but it has really been dicey lately. Hopefully they get it sorted out. The one thing I would suggest is to not register your domains with Brinkster because they are not a real registrar. I would go with GoDaddy or some other real registrar who will allow you to control your domains directly. Brinkster will also not allow you to transfer your domains in. So, if for example you have a domain at networksolutions then you can not transfer it to be managed at Brinkster unless you wait (with your site down) for it to expire and then rebuy it (hopefully nobody else bought it) through Brinkster. Other than the unusual domain handeling Brinkster is pretty solid. You can point multiple domains at the same website and then use code to handle each one independantly. It is pretty easy to do and I have 10 domains showing different content on one webpage for $17 a month.
Pros Good customer service, rare downtimes, lots of features
Cons No offers on old accounts
Summary Its the best web host. I have 4-5 other hosts too but Brinkster has a very good QOS and uptime. Moreover the features, support for .Net and enough of bandwidth is also a plus.
Pros Excellent Customer support
Cons Billing Staments are little confusing
Summary The best hosting that I have used in 5 years!
