Sunday, December 12, 2010 hosting - not really 24h/d, 7d/w

UPDATE: They fixed their domain system so I changed this post text a bit to be less critical. Nevertheless it took them almost 70h to fix it (because nobody was on weekend)!

Why? Why I'm not satisfied with their hosting?

Everything started at 12:01pm friday. I was at work, there was a big problem with our entrance system so I was testing various things to get it again working like it should. Meantime I was talking with person sitting at information desk. I asked her to go to and check out my redirecting system I worked hard on. She opened it, first time it worked but when site got refreshed IT WENT DOWN! "What the hell" I said. There is something wrong with it. I really got mad at that time, I asked like 20 people there to check it out but it suddenly stopped working!!! So what I did? Because of not enough time at work I couldn't send them notice about this problem till 4:30pm. Something happened after that? Nope! They claim to monitor sites 24h/7day but that's not really true. They work from 8am-4pm on weekdays only!!! Nobody to help you past those hours or during weekends.

This hosting is NOT FREE! I paid for it and what did I get? After a week broken access to my website (FTP, mysql, mails work), broken admin panel to change domain/server settings (there is a workaround for it if you remember your domain ID)! All systems are automated that what it looks like, NOBODY really monitors anything!

I even put an AD on 1 Cent Mail and because of it I'm losing my valuable visitors!

I moved my site to free webhosting,, for Sunday. Everything worked fine then. Now It's back at exone and I hope this problem never appears again or I'm really be mad then.

NO STATISTICS OR STORED URLS WERE LOST OR ALTERED! Everything is working as it was before 12:01pm Friday.

Target FOUR urls by country and pass it as ONE url

At least I finished my last script. I don't mean that I won't be writing scripts anymore. I think I need a little break for now. I was working on them four days stright, at work, at home. Nevermind.

What this one does? It let's You pick one or more of 200+ countries to target up to 4 URLs as one MASKed URL, for example, named . That's just 10 characters excluding http tag and You can hide there any urls You like! Well I think You need to check it out urself anyway. It's FREE!

Convert LOOOOONG urls into short ones

Shorter URL free of charge? Easy to remember? Special functions: Random redirect and Tier targetting? Is it even possible? YES! READ ON!

Yesterday I started working on my own PHP script that let's people "cut" long URLs into short one. For example any URL can be reduced to First version took only 30 min to write and I did it at work on Sunday lol. Anyway till today I was writing 2 additional functionalities. The first one was random URL redirecting that lets visitor pick 3 URLs that short URL will randomly redirect to. Each of them has 33,(3)% chance to be picked and the URL looks like this where r stands for random. Second is Tier targetting. I think it's the hottest one because it lets you redirect people from specified countries to your website and the referring URL remains the same it was ( DOES NOT count)! Tiers are based on 1centmail and world-wide cash PTP tiers. The URL always looks like this: where t stands for tiers or targetting (as You like ;).

Service is totally free of charge. Of course I accept donations and as a reward I can enable number at the beginning of URL or even a full name like or Of course You need to mail me after you donate - more info You will find after submitting URL to generate short one. There are NO ads involved in redirecting system and I hope there never will be one. Only ads I would want to show are banners shown on main URL submitting page. You can of course donate and get a banner on main site as well for a specified time (needs to be talked over by mail).

In the future i plan to ADD Statistics, Registerring, Logging in, editing URLs, targetting by countries someday. Don't know if that means SOON or not ;P

I urge You to try it. I will not use any information You submit against You or to profit from. I really don't care about what You submit but I DO ACCEPT ABUSE REPORTS incase someone does very bad thing ;) (This link was accessed: times)
