Web hosts slow down

Posted August 24, 2010

What is the deal with web hosting services? I’ve tried several over the last 2 years and they all seem to do the same thing. They are great to start with. Nice fast response, both HTTP and FTP are great. The cPanel works great.
Then – Everything goes to muck!!!

After about 3 months of service they slow down. They drop out in the middle of the night. The access is slow and intermittent. The cPanel page is slow to access. The FTP is slow and intermittent.
This happens everywhere I go to.
When I submit a problem ticket, the response is always similar. Here are several usual responses:
1. I checked the servers and they appear ok. Please let us know if you have more problems.
2. I did a repair/maint on your databases, and the response is good now.
3. Here is a report from host-tracker that shows your speed is good.
It’s funny because usually after one of these responses, my speed returns to normal/usable. Then after a few days it goes back to being bad.
I’m writing this on a server that is reeeaaallly slow right now. It is frustrating.
I’m ready to try another one. Maybe imageleet this time.
I’m currently on pacifichost. About ready to chuck them. At least I only bought 6 months this time.
