Bravenet is absolutely horrible-'Unlimited Bandwidth' is a lie
Bravenet advertises 'unlimited bandwidth' but this is a lie. Unknownst to the user, they put what they call 'soft limits' on your bandwidth usage, so if you go over that they will, without notice, take your sites down for being 'over bandwidth'. You have to contact them (via online support ticket--there is no 'live' help, telephone number, etc) and have them fix your sites. Even then (if you can finally get a response from anyone), all they do is make sure you're not 'abusing' (their mysterious determination) and then increase your 'soft limit' incrementally. So next month you may go over again, they shut your sites down, you have to contact them again, etc. Bravenet's 'unlimited bandwidth' is a lie and the company is a clown show. I was a customer for 15+ years but finally got tired of their excuses, lies and abuse. Good riddance.
BRAVENET HOSTING IS A SCAM, FRAUD, CON, RIP-OFF
I have 3 different Bravenet accounts, each one dedicated to it's own website.
Mysteriously, all 3 of them went offline at the SAME TIME and said I had exceeded my bandwidth and that I needed to purchase paid hosting. Coincidence?
Nope, it's a strait up scam and I caught them in the act. There's nothing coincidental about 3 websites exceeding their bandwidth at the same time, especially since 2 of them don't use any bandwidth at all.
I would gladly take my files and move to another host, but apparently, Bravenet doesn't want me to leave because they're holding my websites hostage. I can't even access FTP to download my files unless I pay them their ransom money.
So, in further token of my appreciation for all of the great things Bravenet has done to extort money out of me, I have take the liberty upon myself to use my own "mafia like" tactics to expose these criminals. It's summer, school's out and I have nothing better to do than to sit around posting this message on all the hosting forums, review sites, filing BBB reports and spreading the word of this con operation.
Bravenet, you have messed with the wrong kid and now you're gonna die.
Biggest Pro: Nothing at all.
Biggest Con: Holding websites hostage for ransom money
