No support for subdomains    
Written by Anonymous User (#1548-209) from Sydney Australia   (Tuesday, January 03, 2012)
Listing Reviewed:
Strengths:   cheap  
Weaknesses:   extra work to do simple things, almost false advertising  
Details:   I was looking for a site with multiple subdomains (specifically). Although the website clearly states they support sub-domains, it isn't actually true. What they offer is a work-around to mimic subdomains. You can either create a huge number of URL-rewrites (which makes it look like a subdomain to the user) or you can write code that checks every URL put in and redirect it to the page you want displayed (again a work-around). In my experience as a developer over the years, a subdomain is a unique URL you can point to a folder or web app. If you have 20 different web applications and are expecting to transfer the files over this hosting provider and point your subdomains to each web app, forget it. You will have to combine all your web apps into one and create code to specify which one to display. I found this out AFTER also purchasing the unique IP address. Silly me. If you are looking for something specific with a hosting company, my advice is to make sure they can do what they advertise they can. And, make sure your definition of a service is the same as theirs. I wanted a 'subdomain service' while they only provide a service that mimics subdomains. I don't believe my experience would be everyones, but I do feel misled by their advertising.
Review Based On:   6 Month(s) of usage  
Rebuttal From Listing Owner:   We do not false advertise. We do support multiple subdomains. This particular situation seems to be one of confused definitions. A subdomain, by definition, is a domain that is part of a larger top-level domain. More specifically, subdomains are third level domains that are used to organize web site content. For example,,, would all be subdomains of the top level domain name, Multiple subdomains is something we do offer as stated on our site. It appears this particular customer thinks "multiple subdomains" is hosting multiple top-level domains within one hosting account, but this is NOT the definition of subdomains.
