I was wondering if anyone had heard anything about hosting-pp.com I was wondering if anyone has had good or bad problems with them.

I haven't heard anything good or bad about them, but looking at their site something smells fishy. 7 GB Space and 50 GB Bandwidth for $3.99??? Something doesn't seem right. It seems like they really upped their disk space and bandwidth. Just looking at them, I would not purchase from them.

I believe there would be some -> if you did.

I'll have to agree. It's odd (to me at least) that they would raise their space from 300mb to 7GB and 2GB bandwidth to 50GB without touching their price. Actually, making the setup-fee lower. I don't get it. Am I missing something?

How would that keep prices the same and raise bandwidth and disk space? Wouldn't a company just want to maximize their profit and maybe raise bandwidth a little bit? Not from 2 - 50 GB? It just seems pretty odd to me.

The buying company could have another target market.

That said, I was only trying to find a situation in which such a drastic change could occur.

Another reason could be that they aren't getting any clients, so they just raise the amount of bandwidth and disk space they offer. When that happens, people post it in forums and talk about it Sort of like free advertising.

I have no clue if akrug23 is associated with hosting-pp.com. However, I don't know if it is their intention to spam the forums. It is probably not. I think it is their intention to create somewhat of a "buzz" so people can talk about them. Just like we are doing now.

As I said... sort of like spamming. We'll see if he comes back to this thread. That should help us decide what his post really was.

Well you know they had to increase their specs, and make it appealing before posting all over the world if anyone has heard of them.

It's probably one of the oldest tricks in the book. Draw people's attention to your site by way of asking for reviews of the company. Given enough time, I'm sure someone will pop in here and say "Oh my oh my, gee golly my hosting-pp.com is the greates host in the gee golly world!"

I doubt that he will come back to this thread because now he knows that we're just too smart to fall for a silly little trick.

I don't work for the company or am I associated with them. i am just looking for a cheap hosting company that offers alot of space. I was just curious because they were offering so much space for such a little price. I just wanted some feed back from others and maybe someone who has had some experience with them.

I don't think you'll find anybody with experience here. They only have one website on their IP - their own. They could have other IP's though. http://whois.webhosting.info/66.98.251.133 (I also don't know how accurate this site is)
Also, I would highly recommend that you NOT go with this provider because getting that much space and bandwidth for such a little price is asking for trouble. I would aviod.
