    Seems like this promotion is on forever but I was wondering what people are thinking of netfirms and their service? I may be interested at 10 dollars for a year is it worth it?

    Not really.

    I had two domains hosted there and it's okay unless you really use it. lol

    You're pretty limited on things and if I remember correctly, they wouldn't even turn on register globals for you...:greddy:

    It's horrible, avoid at all costs. I had to cancel via phone, and they even admitted their servers were slow.

    I tried it out a few months ago and the service is beyond horridly slow. I would definitely not recommend anyone even try it. Dreamhost is better than that shit.

    Thanks everyone for your input, won't go with them. Might try citrex or whatever it was called in the sticky a couple of weeks ago.

    I bought probably 10 plans with them just for the 2 domains alone. They now limit you to once per credit card, probably because of me alone.

    If you sign up with them, change your credit card expiration date to a month after you signed up. That way they do not try to auto charge.

    Upon the expiration of your hosting, you have to CALL IN and request your plan be downgraded to the "domain parking" plan, or you will not be able to renew the domain, should you choose to do so.

    I set up one domain parking plan, then did the domain import feature, which allows you to grab a domain from another plan within netfirms, and add it to your existing domain parking plan. Doing so will mean you only have to call in once.

    Hit me up if you need more info.

    And yes, their servers are balls slow.

    ftp is decent at 1mbps, good enogh for basic stuff, upload bottleneck is my cable modem
    if you need basic storage (my best friend had it and lent me half his space/useage) it's fine only cuz it's cheap. the website we had was ont he slower side, but i am going to get my own plan becuase its useful for fileback up/basic website
