x10hosting was founded in 2004 and is now 14 years in business.
x10hosting.com contains very nice layout, and whole website is easy to navigate... except signup form. After clicking registration link we were asked to choose between available packages - without ads, and with forced ads (ads-sponsored package includes more space and bandwidth). Trying to register for ads-free package didn't work - we were redirected to same page again and again. But after choosing package with ads, registration form was working just perfect. As soon as required fields were filled out, we got confirmation email and cPanel account was created within next few minutes. After doing some more tests we found x10hosting.com user area is hard to understand (while main website should be easy to navigate even for newbies), but their service is good enough - no major slowdowns or timeouts. Another thing we like about x10hosting.com - if standard PHP configuration on server is not suitable for you, you may ask their team to upgrade PHP (good reason to do so will be required, of course). Basically, we have no more complaints about x10hosting.com, and it's really worth to consider. And this is a copy of their activation email: Congratulations, your x10Hosting Ad-Enhanced hosting account has been successfully created. Your account details are as follows: Username: xxx Password: xxx

Review of x10hosting.com by wap tek on 2009/08/05 at 11:35my site was waptek2 x10hosting.com
i got a suspension reason code = "5A913B4AAF43" and
the 1 word reason as "phishing"
when i tryed to solution search for eather "phishing" or "5A913B4AAF43"
i get no wheare so i asked foe a more compleat reason for the suspension
so i could fix it like what page(s) are/is the problem
message i got back from Syed x10Hosting
"Your hosting account has been suspended for Phishing.
Can you explain what does your site consist of ?"
[groan ! ] ok ok i will assume a mistake happened ,,
the ticket was blank or no reason was recorded in your system
for the suspension and you are just as confused as i am,, right?
I have no idea why this happened so I am asking YOU do you know why the site was suspended
the next response was from Federico Lerner x10Hosting Administrator - Staff Manager
You should know more about the suspension than us,
as you're the one in charge of uploading files to your hosting account.
Your hosting account has been suspended for "Phishing"
as a phishing website was found on your account.
This website was about: www.wellsfargo.com
Your account is suspended and pending termination.
so i emailed back
i mirrored my website after your last outage so
this is the content you company blanked me for
"This website was about: www.wellsfargo.com"
well thanks ,now that you have got to the point,,
you could have saved me and your company all this time
by putting this in to an earlyer response but ok!,, fine!
the "wellsfargo" page you refer to (fargo.htm) was a parody page
compairing them to the 2 bumbling robber / murderers in the movie fargo
& making fun of them overcharging me and alot of other people
if you blank a 200 page site due to a "phishing claim"
for 1 page and you do not tell me which one was the problem
then how am i supposed to fix it ,,
" Hi, You should know more about the suspension than us,
as you're the one in charge of uploading files to your hosting account."
the tone of you message was condecending, acusitory, & indicates that
(a) you cannot research 1 page to see if it is a phishing site
since your company blanked the entire site ?
(b)if it is visable to you then YOU OBVIOUSLY DID NOT DO ANY RESEARCH!
"Your account is suspended and pending termination."
due to a page that was NOT A PHISHING PAGE?
so lets review
you cannot bother to tell me exactly why you company did this in the suspension report
you and your coworkers wont or cannot determine IF the complaint was valid
and then one of you sends a snotty email to me
telling me that i should be able to figure out what was wrong
without info ?? because you realy believe that the acused is guilty?
or you are covering up lazyness
oh by the way who requested you blanke my site?,,, the bank?
We suspend sites when we receive a notice from the copyright holders and
we make sure the complaints are valid before suspending an account.
You have admitted to holding such a site which makes the case even more valid.
If you are trying to impersonate something,
you will need to read up on the copyright claims and frauds section of their terms.
As of now, your account will remain suspended and is pending termination.
Syed Administrator http://x10hosting.com
" notice from the copyright holders " please forward this notice to me i will need it
thank you for conferming that wellsfargo is sensitive to my rants and criticizums and that money talks!
"we make sure the complaints are valid before suspending an account."
realy and what ofending material was it,, and why did your company forget to tell me this IN THE FIRST PLACE
"You have admitted to holding such a site which makes the case even more valid. "
no i told you it was a parody page ,, are you person or an automated bot?
if you looked at the page it started out as a list of local bank locations and then
a rant about them messing up my account , the only stuff on the page that is theirs
is the ad's they dump to screen when you want to see your account
no one in their right mind would ever see this as a wells fargo page
"If you are trying to impersonate something,"
wait stop ,, you said i WAS doing a phishing site not IF ,
is this annother indicator that you are not actualy reading the page info
" you will need to read up on the copyright claims and frauds section of their terms.
As of now, your account will remain suspended and is pending termination."
so let me get this strait you looked at the site, ,,??????? right! ,,,no,,, no you didn't did you
admit it ,, you just blanked it, and ignored any real issue
you know what i think? i think you are lieing!
i think your system flagged this and you have no clue what happened,
you are trying to cover up that you do not have the authority to fix it
Review of x10hosting.com by Candice on 2009/08/01 at 15:34Although this host may seem good on the surface, do not be fooled. The staff are rude and unhelpful in email correspondance. They suspend your site if you do not sign in to it within every 2 weeks, and delete it 10 days after this without any kind of notice or email to say this is the situation. When this happened to me and I tried to get the html or the site back, I was told it was my own fault & the member of staff who dealt with me was incredibly rude and not bothered at all that I had spent hours and hours building the site. DO NOT USE! Try another free host, as I will be doing.
Review of x10hosting.com by Chungyen Chang on 2009/07/29 at 15:20Those two negative reviews for June and July came in at the same time I did...right in the middle of a massive server maintence/move. If these people had gone to the forums and actually read the service notices they would know that. Unfortunately, a lot of people these days refuse to find information on their own, and want it handed to them instead.
During this server maintenence, despite handling hundreds of thousands of accounts, and despite having to work overtime, my support tickets were answered extremely quickly, in under 24 hours. Now that the maintenence is over, my uptime is 99%. Definitely worth the wait to save me the 100 bucks I was giving up for paid hosting.

is stealing facebook info.
Review of x10hosting.com by Dan on 2009/07/20 at 17:26x10Hosting is an excellent free hosting. The uptime is stable now, they already upgrade their server for better uptime. I recommended it over all free hosting because they allow me to host my own files(software products), cPanel 11+, and their daily backups. They have a large forum community with over 230,000 members! You are not alone.. Kudos!
Review of x10hosting.com by Dave on 2009/07/13 at 19:58Crap site. My site is down half the time. Site is unnavigable because of their slow servers. 000webhost.com has much faster servers, but no longer has Cpanel or the features I need. What a shame :(
