dotable.com I chatted with the owner!!! a totally different experience
|Posted by healthy, 02-16-2007, 09:39 AM
|I started to chatt online at http://dotable.com
and I was surprised:
I was chatting with the owner!!!
he has his pic at the chatt window, he speaks very upfront, very honest
too honest perhaps!!!!!!!
and you get to see a forum at the main page!!!!!!
their rates are higher than those from jaguarpc and hostgator etc...
so I wonder if anyone has some more information on them?
I guess I may go with them, as he told me their support is their main priority
and I certainly want to have someone real on my side, I have some other
busyness going on so paying more money for having more peace of mind, in my
case, could be important.
Not decided yet, though.
(I was trying to gather information to decide which company to sign up with)

|Personally I don't see the fascination with chatting with the owner of a hosting firm, or any firm. A large percentage of active users on this forum are hosting firm directors and you converse with them every day (depending on how regularly you use WHT... Which for me is too much).

|You will find plenty of dithyrambic reviews in this forum about Dotable and the owner's previous company (HTTPme).

|Robert a.k.a Aussie Bob on this forum is a well respected and well reputed member. He runs a top notch hosting operation at dotable and has tons of experience in this industry. As mentioned by "tonyFF" he was also the previous owner of HTTPme which was reputed company as well.

|Saved me the trouble, Ed.
Why use a big word when a diminutive one will do?

|I can tell you that totally recommend Dotable as an excellent host and value (based on Australian dollars). I've been with them since about late June/early July of 2006. At first I was a bit concerned since support answers were a little slower then I was used to but since Bob added Steve into the mix this hasn't been a problem. Lately there have been some downtime on my server (Mars) but Bob/Steve are always quick to react and notify.
They are on my shortlist of hosts that I would be happy to host with.
They are not the only host who's owners are very involved with their users but this is one of the nice features of Dotable, it just feels like better customer service.

|Perhaps you should ask them why their rates are higher? I think for a good reason
You will only find good things to read about Dotable, they are committed to their work and do a pretty good job

|As you can clearly see this word is a Greek one and I am from Greece, too.
So although the definitions you provided are correct (there are more meanings and usage of this word), it is very common to use this phrase "dithyrambic review" here in my country

|I am glad I was not the only one who had to check on the dictionary!
