Anyway, I just got this e-mail...

Hmm... they're based in Maine. I should really go bug them.

Anyway, even though they're getting their data-transfer for around 25&cent per gig they'd have to put at least 1000 clients on a server. Something just doesn't seem realistic here...

Maybe they just want to sell, to get some money soon to pay their bills! Although they're trying this in the wrong way. Seems not to have a good business plan.

Looks like the special offer has ended. :(
I was planning to sign up for an account since it's so cheap.
It's cheap the way it is, anyway. I think I'm going to try out the $6.00 plan. :D

They probably hope to get a bunch of people to say "wow, this is cheap!" and just sign up without having the ability to use all the space or bandwidth. I suppose if only 1 out of every 5 or 10 people actually uses the full amount they're alloted, and many people are paying $5 for a site that gets 10 hits a month, they could be making a profit.

and what about the sites that use alot of resources that is only paying $5.00. I seen somewhere that they only pay $.25USD (tenty five cents per gb of bandwith which i think is bs and if they give you 10 a month for 12 months thats $30 for bandwith plus elcetric, servers, rent, other parts like racks, cat 5 other stuff they will be losing their a$$e$.

Im not sure how they can offer this

Its funny how a company that has been operating for more than a year offer something like this!

We ourselves offer some excellent LOW end Hosting solutions but this is plain impossible...

The lack of smtp server is a smart idea to lower costs by a big % believe it or not.. and what they pay for bandwidth could be different... Maybe they are hosted in Australia, were Outbound data is not measured at all!

Hmm does anyone that has bought that plan have any info like are you on a cobalt raq or something?

I knew a company before it shut down it was offering amzing prices for there service by having 400 of these sites per server! IF you do the maths right they would still be doing good in the profit area of the business...

Good luck to them anyway i have heard many good things about them and since we use to do more business hosting we never saw them as serious competition.. but now that we are aiming our new servers/department at high quality affordable hosting i must admin they are giving us a run for our money...

Just my opinion...
and cyberwings if you ready to sell the company, PM me!

1. They do provide SMTP server to clients.

2. They are hosted in the US -- their own data center in Maine.

Actually they no longer do. They tell people to use the one provided by their ISP.
