i'been testing the smarteraasp.net services since the last month and it works great, i use it to host a webservice and it works really fast, the configuration was easy and friendly, the support solves all my questions. The only thing is that the static ip and the ssl certificates won't work on the trial.

I have hosted my site with this host for more than 1 year now and I have upgraded my hosting plan to their premium plan. So far, the access to my site from Doha is just perfect and excellent. I am so happy to find such a host that can meet my requirements. Highly recommended!

I've used Host It Smart for years and only experiencing infrequent and minor issues. Any issues I've had were quickly resolved by their support teams. The sites are always up and running fast and my customers have never reported any problems.

For real, their servers are expensive, you can't contact support as they want a fee for each ticket, the servers had almost weekly down times. And their "satisfaction guarantee" is only to make you think you have a chance to get your money back if something goes wrong - in reality they will try to sue you. Stay away!

They claim to support let'sencrypt, but they don't want to help you on problem you face. They ive me a portal (plask) with nice addon, but they don't care if it's worj-king or not. In case of problem, you have to contact third party your self (In my case plesk and let'sencrypt)

Pair is one of those hosts that sells unlimited bandwidth shared hosting. Then, you will have a bandwidth limit. Go over it and your site is shut down. Thats it for this month. No notice, just shut things down. They have no legal or technical understanding. They shut my sites off on a cease and desist. They freaked out rather than do what anyone el...

Asked about domains before I bought them and now they are trying to charge me an extra $15 per domain to transfer out when I have asked about all this well over a month ago and was put off apparently because all this is hidden in their terms.

Arvixe suspends account and then will not respond – lies and customer hostile.

We have used Arvixe for years and it served us well – than about a month ago they complained that we used to many “inodes” (files) on our “unlimited disk space” account. So, unlimited disk space is, well, limited – so they should admit to that. The number of files has not changed much is years, why this now, we don’t know. We don’t use that much sp...

I signed up for VoltWP using their free trial coupon and have had an incredible experience so far. I have 4 websites that I manage and using their portal makes it very easy to manage. They have a staging area where you can clone your website and make changes then push the changes back to your live site. It's a very simple process and they have butt...

We have used shark for over 3 years now. In the whole time we have been with them there was only been 2x of downtime of about 1-2 hours & one scheduled of 4 hours. Great support, would highly recommend we have 3 x VPS with them
