Hi,just wondering what others experiences with afrihost are.
i just took out an MSHomeGold account with them.
- Signup was quick and easy
- mail didnt work correctly but their tech support sorted that out in a few hrs. not a train smash
- what i am disappointed about is the tools i have to manage my website (or lack of rather). there is a linux based cpanel to manage my mails (that already seems strange). the website is windows hosted on a different server, but nothing to manage it apart from an ftp. zero visibility on my website, cannot manage my MsSqlServer db. tech support says i must just dump my mdb in the db and they will do the rest. cant do sql queries or meta changes myself. eish
no way to do cron jobs
no way to do backups/restores or my site or my db
no way to password protect folders
cannot configure error pages
no stats or logs
no web file manager
all of this advertised on the signup page
website says they support heml.
I email tech for assistance in locating it. tech says no they dont support helm and i must send a screenshot of their website to prove they do
I do that
Tech replies to say only on the old servers. new servers run websitepanel but they dont give end users access because they haven't figured out how to stop users from seeing other ppls domains.
are these probs unique to me. getting worried because they are hosting my .coza and .com and i can see it being a mission to move now
