    Host doesn't responds.

    Hello all,

    Currently my personal webhost doesn't responds to my support requests at all.
    I have sent him 2 emails allready with no reaction.

    What should I do?

    If you have contacted your web host via email, there may not be many options available. I'm sure you would have called them already if they had a phone number. As well as a support desk, etc.

    How long has it been with no response?

    Sometimes smaller hosts work other jobs to support themselves and take a few hours to answer. Though if you go more than a day or two without a response it can't mean good news.

    How long has it been? If anything more than a few hours, that's not good.

    as no host takes 3 days for any php extension installation.

    36 hours is only a day and a half- although longer than it should take it's not impossible if it's a part timer who has other projects in the works too.

    Still embarrassing for a host to have someone post on a forum that their support tickets are taking too long to answer. I hope everything is alright over there and that if their responses aren't getting through for whatever reason they notice quickly. Going too long without a reply makes people assume the worst.

    I think the issue is you submitted a email when you should have submitted a ticket or called him. While it's true the host should have answered the email sooner, depending on how many of his clients actually use email as the support method it's entirely possible he only checks it once every two to five days.

    It is, but it should be fixed now.

    They don't have a ticket center or billing center or something like that.
    The only way to get in touch with them is through email, it also helped that he noticed my call out here

    brave of you to buy hosting from a host that doesn't have billing system.

    or is it free hosting ?

    Honestly, I would never trust a "company" who can't afford the $10/mo. for billing software. Reminds me of VolumeDrive who has god awful service, and won't bother running billing software. With just email support, I'm guessing this host does not have a Support Department of any kind, or any staff members, and is rather just a one man show. Nothing wrong with that, except when it takes the owner days to respond to emails.

    What's wrong with the price? At least we can assume the disk space isn't oversold. The price doesn't mean anything, if it's quality service. I've had important business users pay me 10 or 20 times (or more) that price for 5GB of disk space. They also needed darn close to 100% uptime, needed to be able to reach me by phone 24/7, etc.

    At that price it had better be real resources. Otherwise I should raise my prices- because mine area all real resource.

    I have noticed lately that some hosts aren't using the normal billing packages because of the plethora of known security problems they have, and in a few cases hosts have even undertaken to write their own systems from scratch to have exactly the capabilities they are looking for. Perhaps the host in question is one of these, and just plain hasn't finished writing it yet or hasn't uploaded the latest developments to the live server.

    It may not be a horrible thing, perhaps they just are so small that they haven't run into problems like this before and realized why so many hosts use a support ticket system instead of just going by email.
