I misread the location of placing my WordPress files, so had them in a subdirectory of my domain on HostPapa. Support quickly resolved the issue and further assisted me when it was found that I had NOT copied all my files to the correct location (they had offered to do the copying but I like to learn to do things). Support did finish the copying, p...

I was in a real rut with my former tech support guru and Nikola helped me see the light at the end of the tunnel. Your tech support chat team is absolutely fantastic. Thank you for such a professional chat group. - Edith Williams, new hoster.

I have had my websites with Easyhost since they were Hostway, and IARNA before that. I am aware that they are not the cheapest, however, I have found ease of access to Technical Support to be far more important than price. Yes, we have had one or two technical difficulties over time, but none took more than 24 hours to fix, and most much less. I ha...

I bought an .AI domain from this company. My Paypal transfer went through. Then the company refused to release the domain, and stole my domain name instead. Likely a scam of a company. Best to stay away, and not give them any of your information.

After 5 years at another host, I found the need to search for another. I heard of SiteGround from a colleague and couldn't be happier with the switch. They were very specific with instructions, super-helpful and quite efficient making the transfer of files quite effortless. That was the part I was dreading, recalling bad experiences with my previou...

I want to thank Hetzner for having so good admin panel. Actually a lot of things is possible to do from it. I had 5 dedicated servers in one company, and a little bit later High Availability solution with 3 dedicated servers. I have one dedicated server for my personal use. Never had any issues with hardware, availability or network. Servers just ...
