Hosting Direct ADSL2 Plans

g-tech, Nov 27, 1:09pm
anyone used them? How are they as an ISP, thinking about moving over to them from orcon.

I have wondered the same thing. Been waiting for someone to give it a go first lol

If its connected to their hosting side of things they use an Orcon connection anyway

Bit Torrent and related services like Torrents over our ADSL network are fully blocked.

hosting direct is epic fail.

Hosting Direct DSL is great, I use it and bit torrent works fast as! Compared to Xnet I was with before, HD is much cheaper and faster.

Would that be for all their plans? $60+gst for 100gb would be great.

Hosting Direct is terrible. They block all bittorrent and other file sharing on their network and have had terrible PR in the past (they got themselves banned from Geekzone). Avoid.

That part isn't difficult at dorkzone. The moderators are idiots.

Their website has incorrect pricing for over usage.

I was really looking forward to informing Telecom that I no longer required their 'service'.

Why? want to qualify your statement.

I have used HD for hosting for ages, never had a problem with them, excellent uptime, fast servers, well priced.

If they offered a Naked DSL plan I would jump straight away.

Well, every other ISP there has managed to refrain from abusing people.

I agree very abusive on the forums, majorly has a attitude problem.
