I have been using Powweb.com for a couple years now, I think. I signed up for a 12 month program last July. Since then, the ownership of Powweb has changed. Since the switchover, I have seen degrading performance. FTP is slow, sometimes painfully slow. This website is sometimes slow and once in a while won’t come up at all. And my email, which forwards to gmail, takes over 5 minutes to complete. Today someone told me that an email to me bounced.
Their chat people sometimes don’t listen to the problem. They just suggested that I buy FTP ZOOM which is a server-side utility which speeds up FTP. Its another $20 per year. Why do I have to pay for this? Their FTP is slower than other FTP services. I am testing in parallel to make sure. Ugh, I am fed up.
I am looking for a new host. Moving is going to be a total pain in the butt. I am NOT looking forward to this. Yuck. I don’t feel like I have much of a choice though.
