    www.webhostingpad.com

    I'm considering switching to them for hosting.

    Only $1.99/a month for unlimited disk space, unlimited bandwidth, unlimited email, unlimited ftp, host unlimited domains.

    Is it too good to be true?

    Anyone had experience with them?

    Read their TOS, I would not go with them.

    Not really unlimited, and unable to use it for file storage
    so, the next 10k files is 5x the org account price. So it is not truly unlimited. 10,000 10kb files is only 10 MB.
    Why would they limit this?
    Cannot be logged into FTP for 10 min? I have left FTP open all day on one of my free accounts with no issues. Assuming I got my full upload speed I could not upload more than 400 MB on my home internet connection at once.

    Search through the "Helpful Links" sticky. It's listed on there, so obviously someone has used them before.

    Thank you. You are right. I don't want to use them. :)

    Sorry, Miles. I always just blow-off the stickies.
