Just a thought: maybe the company asked people to send them reviews, so that they could post them on their website, and then they decided they should post them @ host-dir?

But look at the time of each "positive" post from http://host-dir.com/review.asp?CurrentPage=4 . They're back to back as if the owner is typing as fast as he could to write as many good reviews as he can for his company.

My favorite: "Their support team (1000's?)..."

Well, if all they were doing is copy-paste, copy-paste..., then it wouldn't take long!

I posted the reviews from from hostsearch.com to here. If you don't beleave ANY ONE contact the email address of the review. If you think it's a Lie, then the only one you hurt it yourself. O-K, I shouldn't have done that, and their is not a thing I can do about it now. Live and Learn.. But I do have the best service for the price. But that is OK.. All or the people how made off color commits, can just keep paying $120 a year for what I give for $35. Dr.D
