  1. On the fence about HawkHost? Don't be!  Feel free to ask questions before purchase!

  2. These no longer appear to work?
  3. Whenever I try to edit my profile on the forums here, I get a forbidden error saying I don't have permission to access the URL on this server. I would look into fixing this as I'd like to update my profile with more relevant information.
  4. I'm on the lightning server and my site's been loading rather slow lately as well. Wonder what the issue is and if they're working on fixing it?
  5. Definitely a unique feature I haven't seen on any other host. One of the reasons why Hawk is great. :-)
  6. So far so good Tony. Only thing I request which I put in a ticket for is for Hawk to install the imagemagick library. It's how Xenforo handles animated avatars and attachments and my members kinda want animated avatars
  7. Ahh okay that's what I figured happened. No big deal though it was only about 10 posts and a minor change to a template I can re-do easily.
  8. Was there a rollback of the lightning server or something? I lost quite a bit of content just now, a handful of forum posts and some other changes I made earlier today are all gone now out of nowhere?
  9. Good to hear Tony! Looking forward to it. Also, will you be upgrading the version of PHP and Mysql? I'm asking because I know newer versions of Xenforo (forum software i'm running) will requrie PHP 5.3+ that being said, I'm fairly certain IPB will be upping their requirements for IPB 4.0, which is why I'm curious if you guys will be upgrading PHP from 5.2.x and Mysql to a newer version?
  10. Has the transfer of lightning occurred yet?
  11. I've noticed that Hawkhost's shared servers (specifically lightning?) Have been rather sluggish lately. Why is this? Sometimes it'll load up right away while other times it'll take a good 15-25 seconds to load up? I've noticed this on my site as well as and I believe Fowler is already in contact with you guys about this issue? Can anything be done to improve load speeds? I've had quite a few issues the past month with Hawkhost and i'm quite surprised but my co-admin is insisting we move off of Hawkhost if service does not improve. I'd hate to leave Hawk because it's been the best host I've used in years and I've been with you guys since 2010 but if it's time to go then I guess I have no other option......I would like to give Hawk the benefit of the doubt though and I'm just curious if anything has changed in terms of server maintainence or if there's been any other underlying issues that can be sorted out to improve site speeds?
  12. Hi, you guys disabeld my account due to 'spam' from one of my domains? I was absolutely unaware of this and I feel my account may have ben compromised. Please help me in addresing this issue. My domain is
