Stream hosting pricing


Recommended Posts

Hi John,

 

Please see this post as a review to your website :

 

- In your message you write "price = decent"

The first thing that I see when I enter your website is 2 times the word "cheap"

In the world of sales and management is the word "cheap" the worst word who can be used to say that a product is "also" good

- I checked the tour guide who shows Me a flash popup .. however I don't see any content unless some floating words ..

- I see that your company is also selling design to websites .. pardon Me .. but the templates who are published are far more better and nicer than that one who is being used to make your own company site .. I can be wrong .. but it don't "push Me" to click on the button "webdesign"

- Concerning the announced price of the packages .. lets say .. it ain't cheap and it ain't the highest .. however I have the idea that the servers who are offered do have a high Monthly price .. at first sight you are offering a datatraffic of 4000GB (I guess per Year) .. but I'm almost sure that no company ever gonna use such an amount of traffic ... thats equal to 333GB a Month ... even an internetstation who is streaming 24/7 from a mainstudio to a shoutcastserver isn't using that amount of datatraffic a Month ..

 

So .. please don't see this as "all negative" .. its only my impression at first sight as visitor to your website

Maybe it can be a nice idea to re-arrange some parts of the website and to update some features

we feel that our prices are decent, but want more user opinions

That's not that much traffic. We push close to 30,000 GB a month on one of our servers.

Hi, well I suppose thats your honest opinion which is fair enough, I have commented under each of your faults.

Good point, I was hitting it from the SEO side of things as cheap shoutcast hosting would get me more clicks than just shoutcast hosting

 

- I checked the tour guide who shows Me a flash popup .. however I don't see any content unless some floating words ..

 

Are you on about our shoutcast centova cast control panel tour? if so what can you not see, the popup comes up and you click on for broadcasters and the next page opens. If you are not seeing this and any images please can you tell me what os / browser you are using so I can check as cannot find anything wrong, but if there is it will be fixed.

 

- I see that your company is also selling design to websites .. pardon Me .. but the templates who are published are far more better and nicer than that one who is being used to make your own company site .. I can be wrong .. but it don't "push Me" to click on the button "webdesign"

 

Thats your opinion, if I had a hundred people on here saying the same I might change it, but get more nice comments than bad,

If you are on about our dedicated servers or any other bandwidth quotas they are all per month, our dedicated servers come with 4TB of traffic per month and believe me it can be used.

 

So .. please don't see this as "all negative" .. its only my impression at first sight as visitor to your website

I am always open to comments and ways people think we could improve/update our services and will always keep these in mind when adding to site.

Thanks and respect for your reply to my review (Y)

a) The flash is the script used for the "see control panel tour" .. Indeed I see the word "broadcasters" and clicked on the word .. but it shows Me a blank file with no specific content unless a topbanner "see our ..."

I use IE7 and I'm using the same script also to projects who are managed by myself .. and I don't have operational problems with it

b) I agree with your point of view about the websites who are made by your company that these are A-ok ...

My point is that the templates who are published on the mainpage could be made as tumbnail who can be enlarged .. This way visitors can see the content aka screenshot itself

Currenlty the examples of templates are more or less on top of eachother and are way different to your company website webdesign .. in other words : the websites you design for customers aren't visible enough to the visitor .. and for a part seeing is still buying

c) I do agree that you have dedicated servers with a 4TB datatraffic. I made the review as firsttime visitor "and" broadcaster. Knowing this .. my point is that a webstation who is streaming from a server to a shoutcastserver don't use that amount of traffic, unless the station is streaming from your dedicated and meanwhile that server is also used as connecting point to listeners .. at that time traffic is higher for sure

 

- anyway .. thanks that you already changed "cheap" in a more common word

Just for the record : you asked to visit your website and to check the content and to share opinions to improve the content .. so I did .. for that reason I made my earlier review as seen with the eyes of a firsttime visitor

 

Good luck with your project and thanks for your answer

Hi James ..

well my friend .. yes I can

I'm not asking that much ... manage for Me a limo to the airport, free airplane tickets, an all inclusive hotel suite, .. and some goodlooking compagny :laughing:

 

IF NOT : I have to make it the old fashion way :type: by writing an annoying review with no important content and no tools to improve BW

So its up to you .. its your decission :closetema: :brucelee:

LOL :)

ps : I think you did already a huge job in the making of the new BW design .. so thumbs up (Y)

Thats a good review! If it was reflecting on one of my sites id get alot of useage out of that :) Can you do a review for BW?

That's not that much traffic. We push close to 30,000 GB a month on one of our servers.

 

Same here, 4TB a month isn't much when you're streaming - it's about 100 listeners on average at 128k.

 

Regarding the InterWeb Direct website, it looks nice and your prices look resonable and sustainable.
