That does not prove anything. Your reviews for each one look like you got them from the company its self. Also, for hostgator, why do you have their uptime for every single location? I do not think you tried each location.

An uptime report means consistent monitoring of server(s) over a certain period of time.

You mentioned you use these three uptime software to monitor URLs hosted at those companies: Host-Tracker, Xenos, Uptime Software, but you haven't provided the screenshots or the URLs hosted at tested companies yet. I am looking for actual uptime testing screenshots where it states what % uptime has been and over how long period of time?
Hi,
Here are the screen-shots


Thanks.

No. These are not uptime report screenshots.

Here is how an uptime report looks like.

It shows how many times a day the server is being pinged, calculates uptime in percentage value. What is the value of data that you show, apart that on Tuesday Oct 28 2008 at 23:35:25 GMT, HostGator server that housed Yimto.com website was up running? What about on October 29? 2 days later? 2 months later?

Randomly is fine. Uptime is being tested randomly as well, but in certain time intervals, for example: every 1 minute, 3 minutes, 5 minutes - to derive to a certain average. How often do you do these tests? As of now it seems like the only test you've done was in October 2008?

Also, you keep avoiding the important question. You told me you use these three uptime software to monitor URLs hosted at those companies: Host-Tracker, Xenos, Uptime Software, but you haven't provided the screenshots or the URLs hosted at tested companies yet. You do use this software, don't you?

Hi,
I'v mentioned this again,We do test's randomly using random softwares.
As Of now we are using Hosttracker and not the others.
and we do undertake tests of hosting companies every 1-2 days but the pages aren't updated unless there Is major downtime noticed.
Hope I'v answered all of your queries.

Thanks.

Why did you tell us you are using the other two applications then?

How do you notice downtime if you are not tracking it ?????? What you check is site availability, but you haven't shown one single screenshot that shows what the uptime/downtime percent is!

Actually, I am just starting.
And I am starting with the simplest question of all - uptime - that you mentioned in your advertising:

YOUR QUOTE:
"They have put across a list of top 10 hosting companies on the basis of:
-Speed
-Quality
-Up-Time
-Support
& Reliabilty"

We are yet to receive some hard data proving you do any testing at all.


When you advertise things like these, do you expect us not to ask questions about your testing process, and why you classify companies as "genuine" to validate your statement?

Quote:
The list includes companies that have been classified as genuine as per their view.
Quote:
Therefor Webhosting-10 had been looking to put across a list of hosting companies that have been tried and tested across the Internet and by Webhosting-10 themselves

Go ART! lol

Anyways, as Art said you are not providing us with the information we are asking for. In my own words you are sugar coating it to seem like you are. Those who chat almost daily on this forum know what to look for, and how to see through things. You posted a ad in which you figured no one would question you on. Now that we are, you are trying your best to make your site still look good, but with each post it is going down the crapper.

Please be honest with us and tell us what we want to know. Thank you.

It is not my intention to discredit your site in any way. For the benefit of all, I just want to clarify your statement that you are able to qualify hosting companies as genuine based on a certain testing process in categories you mentioned.

I was left intrigued that you test each hosting company yourself, and merely trying to understand how, but so far I don't see one bit of information that what you state about your review site is true.

I agree with Art, I am not trying to discredit your site either I am just curious to how you test each company. You claim you test them out by your self using various tools yet you do not provide sufficient information about the tools, and any questions we ask.

I have provided as much Information about our work practice as possible.
I'v mentioned what I use.
I'v mentioned on what basis I rate the companies.
I'v mentioned the domain names on which the tests were taken
I'v mentioned the screen-shots
I'v mentioned that the tests are taken randomly
I'v mentioned that the softwares are used randomly

I know you guys are doing your best to Improve the forum but I really think I'v mentioned pretty much every thing.


-Thank you!

You've mentioned it, but didn't provide anything to back it up.

We asked you a very simple question you didn't (and still don't) know the answer to, or perhaps you simply don't want to answer because there is nothing to say.

I Did provide the Screen-shot(Actually 2)
I did provide the Domain names on which the tests were undertaken.

Normally hosting forums just ask for the domain name for monitoring and anything else thats provided by the webmaster serves as a bonus.
I'v gone out of my way to provide screen-shots as well.

and assuming that you referring to the most Important question as 'how do you know there Is downtime' Is :
We do check the website for down-time every day on host-tracker(for which the screen-shot Is allready provided)
