This should be a fun way to look into the mindset of a hosting customer (or a potential hosting customer).

Complete this phrase. You can only pick one thing/reason/characteristic.

"I would never trust a web hosting company that __________ "

Has a TOS/AUP that's six screens or longer and uses 6-point font or smaller. (I'd wonder what they were trying to bury in there...)

Never answers support tickets in a timely manner.......

(To me it means they care only about the profit and not the clients who then make that profit, also the hide whois is a good one too!).

I would never trust a host that...

1. Has been around for more than a year
2. Answers support tickets quickly
3. Charges more than $0.50/mo for 200GB of space.

I would think that since they were around for a while, that they would try to use their experience and pull me in with fast support, only to make me pay a high premium like $6/mo or something. Yikes!

Ok yeah, I'm bein a smartass. lol Just reverse everything I said.

lol yeah, if they were reall environmentally aware, they'd know that gas prices are so high that we wouldn't be able to afford their hosting.

*weighs options*
"Should I drive, or get hosting? Hmmm tough decision"

Some hosting needs to be that price. From personal experience, I've never seen a package at so high price.
