Support & Suggestions / Rule Change
September 04, 2015, 09:27:03 PM

I see we have this rule in place: http://www.host-hunters.com/threads/posting-rules.4/ but have hosts, probably including myself, violating that rule. The reason is because we're all used to the WHT way of doing things: post a new topic every 6 days... Seen as Host-Hunters has a directory, should that rule be changed?
Web Hosting Chat / Backup Server
September 04, 2015, 09:24:36 PM
A lot of people these days seem to be backing up to Amazon or other cloud providers (which claim the benefit of being infinitely expandable). What do you use to backup? We use plain vanilla VPSes with storage providers and were trying to get a dedi to store the data. It's just significantly cheaper and when you're offering LEB deals, that matters.
Web Hosting Chat / Kimsufi Validation Time
September 04, 2015, 09:22:04 PM
Does anyone know how long it takes for Kimsufi to validate an account? I cannot remember it taking this long for SoYouStart or OVH. If you have accounts with either of the other brands you should get immediately validated (you should just be able to submit your OVH username/ password into kimsufi to validate that account).
Web Hosting Chat / WordPress or Bootstrap
September 04, 2015, 09:19:35 PM
Wordpress. You can use theme builders (which are under $100) which makes the whole process of creating something relatively unique rather straight forward. Considering I'm not a designer, this is excellent. =) Wordpress also has addons like Super Cache which are very useful (e.g. Super Cache can allow you to add a CDN to make your site load faster).
SEO Talk / Keywords
August 12, 2015, 05:46:27 AM
I think tags are a good idea. We were ranking quite well for "Free Blesta" when we were offering it free with our reseller plans (before we switched to offering BillingServ).
Quote from: "Liam, post: 1934, member: 191"Hi, I've noticed this was posted last February. By any chance is this position still available?

Thanks. :D

Hi Liam,

Unfortunately not. We need to increase the number of requests we get before taking on anyone new.

Thank you anyway,
Web Hosting Chat / MariaDB 10

Quote from: "Allan, post: 1831, member: 1"Seems interesting, is it faster than mysql?

I don't think it's that significant.... https://seravo.fi/2015/10-reasons-to-migrate-to-mariadb-if-still-using-mysql. They noticed a 3-5% improvement in performance.
Web Hosting Chat / MariaDB 10
April 06, 2015, 08:32:21 PM
Is anyone else using MariaDB 10? We made the switch after cPanel allowed you to upgrade to either MariaDB 10 or the latest MySql version.

Noticing any improvements? I think the main reason why we switched is that there has always been a conflict between MySql and Oracles propitiatory database software.
Good luck to all the contestants. BillingServ is a great SaaS platform. :)

Site Name: holderhost LTD.
Link to site: https://holderhost.com
Positions Available: 3/4 x Support Operator



Part of our strategy to introduce full 24/7 support is to directly take on a few support operators and thus we are taking applications. :)

You will be given access to our live chat software, whmcs, cpanel and our SolusVM master to complete tasks.

We also expect you to be "ambassadors" for holderhost. This means displaying holderhost in signatures, be generally helpful on forums and promoting us. By doing this you will also be benefiting yourself through higher affiliate commissions and the increased use of our live chat desk.

What we are looking for:

- Good command of the English language.
- Experience administering websites.
- People who spend a good amount of time online.
- People with Skype / Google Accounts for communication.

What will this position pay?

We will pay per chat/ ticket:
(Support) Live Chat/ Ticket Resolution: $2.
(Sales) Live Chat/ Ticket Resolution: $1.5.
Non Resolution – Ticket Submitted (Live Chat Only): $0.50.

AND you will also receive affiliate commissions for referring clients. We offer 20% recurring on shared / reseller hosting and a fixed one-off commission for VPS/ Server hosting.

To Apply:
Please complete the following application form and send it to me via PM.

[INDENT]Full Name:
Location/ Timezone:
Skype ID:
How many hours are you online?
What hosting services have you used?
What webmaster experience do you have?
Please securely provide a scanned copy of an official ID. This can be deleted after we have seen it.[/INDENT]

Incorrect ethernet_dev set in the /usr/local/directadmin/conf/directadmin.conf file. <-- Should've followed the install guide more carefully.

Web Hosting Chat / Whmcs or Blesta

Quote from: "Allan, post: 1695, member: 1"I have been thinking about moving from BoxBilling to Billingserv, just waiting for [USER=108]@Jordan Smith[/USER] took hook me up :bounce:

I would absolutely make the switch!! BoxBilling's development has completely stalled whereas BillingServ's constantly releasing new versions. Jordan just let me know the other day that  BillingServ V1.1.0 is near release with a much needed payment option added (imo). ;)
Web Hosting Chat / Whmcs or Blesta
February 07, 2015, 09:12:27 PM
I briefly had experience with Blesta a while back. From what I can see it's improved tremendously. However I shall stick with WHMCS and BillingServ for now. Blesta is too close to WHMCS in terms of features/ other benefits for it to be worth switching.
