BuyShared Review 1 year, 6 months, 2 days
I've been a BuyShared customer for exactly 1 year, 6 months, 2 days as of this post, and it's been great.
I use their USA location.
I started off as a month - month customer, and on Oct 1 2014 I upgraded it to a $20/yearly package.
I mainly use it to test stuff, host some small development sites, host some friends sites, etc.
Support is awesome, I mainly get ticket responses from Aldryic, who is very helpful and always gets straight to the point.
What I really like is their blackhole policy.
Nullroutes on shared hosting last 15 ~ 30 minutes depending on if you keep getting attacked.
A lot of hosts I've used in the past just null route the IP for a minimum of 24 hours, even if the attack is no longer happening, which is very inconvenient, BuyShared's 15-30 minutes policy is excellent.
There has been a few incidents where one of the sites I host on the reseller get's DDOS attacked (which I am moving over to a DDOS protected VPS very soon), so the 15 minute policy ensures everything is back online as soon as possible.
Uptime is extremely solid, never had any downtime except one time where Fiberhub (the datacenter they use) went down and all services were offline for a few hours. This was out of BuyShared's control.
They recently added LetsEnrypt to their cPanel servers so everyone can have SSLs for free.
The only bad thing I can say is the manual order verification. If you order after hours, you wont get your credentials right away as they manually verify your payment, and other stuff.
Example: I ordered a shared cPanel account during the first week of January 2016 on a Friday night around 10PM for a friend, (didn't put them on my reseller as they wanted their own IP), the order was fulfilled around 8:30am the following Saturday.
Being able to buy a DDOS protected IP on a shared hosting package would be awesome.
BuyShared is a great place to host your websites.
Sure there might be a bit of a delay after you place you order, but once it's provisioned, it's smooth sailing.
p.s. I bought a DDOS protected VPS from them about a month ago, it's rock solid, so be sure to check those out.
I'll post a review on the VPS in a year.
