    Payment Terms: For larger projects, I require half upfront. For smaller projects, I'd rather just wait and get paid afterwards. I'll also require, for larger projects and hosting agreements, that you sign a contract. I can also work out a payment plan with you if you can't afford something right away, just ask :3

  2. Are you servers secured? Do you have DDos protection? So basically, do you have a reseller account and you're selling packages?
     
  3. cpvr - I do have a reseller account, and yes, the servers have DDos protection.
     
  4. Where are the servers from then? What hosting company? Can I see what you guys have for "DDos protection". Is it a firewall?
     
  5. Sure thing :) It's MochaHost, and I've just transfered there after rave reviews from friends.

    From their site:

    "By using multiple (7) Tier 1 telecom providers including AT&T, NTT and AboveNet, along with numerous private peering arrangements, we provide more than 250 Gbps of transit and peering capacity.

  6. It seems like a scam. I would ask them 'where' their data center in Chicago is. If they were out here I would have heard of them. Anyone can buy a VPS and write a great review of the services they have under their belt. If they were using even half what is listed, they wouldn't be marketing to this forum.
     
  7. What's up with this then? http://forums.cnet.com/7723-6616_102-272415/do-not-use-mochahost-as-a-web-hosting-company/
    http://www.webhostingtalk.com/showthread.php?t=928470

    And where in Chicago is their data center located?

    And this: http://hosting-reviews-exposed.com/...ost-check-this-review-out-before-you-buy.html
    Lots of hate for a good hosting company? I don't think so.
     
  8. "They" aren't marketing to this forum. I am though. I have a reseller account through them and am offering packages to pet sims just getting started.
     
  9. Good luck with it, though I am not a fan of the phpbb + theme for $20. That is a bit high.
     
  10. ++ Chatrooms (IRC chat) - Are you saying you will simulate IRC for 5-15$ or actually build a completely function IRC client (requires port binding, a decently sized handshake, etc.). Either this name is wrong, or I think you are a little off the mark on the size of scripts.

  11. I'd like to point out that most of those reviews are several years old. I'm going by personal experience - a friend has been with them for about a year now and loves them. I'm on a month-by-month basis, and I do personally back everything up that goes on any hosting account I'm associated with. Should I start to notice a problem, I'll transfer and be done with them, not losing any data for anyone and I can always compensate my clients for downtime due to a server move, although I don't see it being a problem.
     
  12. I've got an IRC chat set up on my own server and will provide your site with an irc client and channel(s) for you to use for the life of your game. I know it can be done easily, but not everyone is comfortable with IRC.
     
  13. Thank you for the feedback. What would you say a good price would be? I am looking for feedback on everything here, so if you feel something is unfair, I appreciate you pointing it out.
     
  14. More recent complaints - http://www.000webhost.com/directory/reviews/mochahost.com

    Here are some reviews if you don't want to do click and see the site (I'm only doing the previous two):
    I'm not going to say anything negative or positive. I'll leave everyone to develop their own opinions and leave mine out. I just had to post this since the previous reviews were a couple years old.

  15. An IRC chat server is set up on your own server? Do you mean the one on MochaHost, or elsewhere? The IRC client you would be providing would it be an open source one, or one customly coded by you? How do you enforce safety / non-crossover chats if you are hosting from one server?

    ~judda
     
  16. Bad reviews = a bad hosting company period. How do we know that once you get games onto your reseller package that you wouldn't take their scripts and sell them?

    And plus, people don't write bad reviews for no reason, they're done for a reason and if the company hasn't learned to fixed those issues, then that's their problem.

    And since you're a new member here trying to push something, I'd recommend you learn the community before trying to come here, sell hosting and high-price programming packages that can be literally done in minutes.
     
  17. Thank you for letting me know. I'd not seen any recent reviews for them upon searching when I did. Like I said, I was going off of personal experience. Although I do think I'll remove the hosting offers from my ad and re-consider MochaHost as there seems to be so many bad reviews on them. Rather be safe than sorry anyways. It's a shame though, my buddy has had zero problems with them in the past year. Perhaps it was a fluke.
     
  18. Please do not make the assumption that I would even do that. I'm trying to build a name for myself and get productive and lifelong relations with future clients/associates. Although, you do not know that I wouldn't. I can assure you I won't. But you don't have to believe me. And yes, I know people do not write bad reviews for no reason. But also remember, people are much more likely to go write a horrible review than they are to go write an amazing one.
     
  19. Not really, if the company is good, their clients will write good and quality reviews. It's done all the time.
     
  20. A lot of people are using MyBB these days, it is going really well developmental wise to. Maybe just offer that with a professional instillation fee?
