if you read my previous post, then you should know that I host my site at namecheap, while my experience in namecheap is good as they had great promise in server uptime. I also want to try some other host so as to experience what it’s like. you know the phrase “don’t put your eggs in one basket”, and this principle is also why this blog is hosted at wordpress.com and not at my hosting. as wordpress.com is much more reliable in blogging and lasts forever.
so when I visited MDDhosting, I was surprised that they initiate the chat eventhough I am not logging in, it must be they had installed some kind of chat function. so here’s how the chat went down.

based on the review that I read in forum, mddhosting seems to have many great impression but they do make it harder for people from indonesia to register. I mean in namecheap, I had to used other’s people paypal account to pay for the invoice due to my paypal is still not verified because of the credit card issue.
so in conclusion, for great hosting then yeah namecheap is still the best for me. suitable for web developers to build application.
