I switched from a plan on Invotion which was sold to half price hosting. I thought I would give them a shot since it's only about $100 per year for the space.

Everything was fine until I tried to post a windows media file in a folder for a client to see. Then the errors started.

After contacting TS, this is what I was sent as a reply:

The following file types are not allowed on the Quickserve plan:
mp*
qt
qtm
mov
avi
rm
mpeg
mov
mpe
mpg
mus
wmv
movie
au
mid*
m3u
ram
ra
wav

!!!!!!!!!

Need I say more? I've never heard of such a limitation. Why not just add HTML!!!!!

Sounded great when I signed up, but experience has taught me otherwise. Technical support has dwindled away to virtually nothing. Prices were increased without notice. Their 90-day money back guarantee was changed to 30 days without notice. Their claim of 99.9% uptime has conveniently disappeared from the website which is good, because I've been experiencing 93%-95% uptime over the past few weeks, which is totally unacceptable. They tend to not answer e-mails at all, and if they do, they avoid addressing any major issues in the e-mail. I asked if I could expect uptime to improve - the response was essentially "everything will be better now". I even read some reviews about them on a major web host review/directory site - one of the glowing reviews had been posted by a HPH employee, Heath Cohen. I know he's an employee because I corresponded with him to take advantage of the money-back guarantee. At least have the good sense to use a fake name, guys! AVOID THIS HOST.
