I'm very happy with cloudways

Cloudways is a cool new way of hosting and I wish I had started using it much earlier. I use it since a few month now and everything runs smoothly. I especially love the payment option that allows you to have a deposit - no more worries to have enough money on hand at the day of the next invoice.

I've been with this site since 2004. They are now costing me my clients and business. Sudden missing e-mails with long term clients, constant blacklisting my 3rd party database we need for our business, long wait times, off shoring upon request not to do so, can't work with same person, 3rd party database tech cannot reach them directly and the pro...

Avoid like sh**. They will take your money and they will offer you sh**** services and they will never give a refund. They will ask for a scanned ID if you're not from India too. They say their servers are based in the US but they are based in India. They are not polite and when they do things wrong - they just avoid to reply. This is not a profess...

Amazing service as always. They have never blamed me for a technical issue. They have even gone into software on my site to fix a problem the software creators could not fix.

They take your credit card details and store them and charge over and over again. I had a few domains cancelled where I switched auto-renew OFF but they claimed I did not turn the privacy renew off (the option was not on the same page anyone would think if you cancel the domain naturally you dont want the privacy on a domain you want to cancel) ...

I've had my site hosted with them on a VPS server that I paid thousands of dollars for over 2 years and at first they were great. Then in the last few months they started to fall apart one tech support issue at a time. The straw that broke the camels back came a couple of weeks ago whey they somehow accidentally unassigned my IP address to my serve...

My experience is not very long with Contabo but I can say that their support replies at the speed of light (just kidding). Replies to enquiries constantly within 10 to 15 minutes is an absolutely top service and their replies have been more than correct.

How we score hosting services

earphones with microphone

Support

No matter how superbly built your website is, something will eventually go wrong. That’s when support really comes in handy.

More

icon-large-features

Features

We will detail the features each hosting company offers, tell you if they are good or not, and if the company actually provides what they offer.

More

icon-large-pricing

Pricing

The sticker price doesn’t tell the full story. We do the homework so you don’t have to—then give you the straight story.

More

icon-large-reliability

Reliability

Your web host must be reliable. If it’s not, your business could lose thousands of dollars.

More

icon-large-speed

Speed

Practically every web host claims to have fast speeds for their customers. But are they telling you the truth?

More

icon-large-userfr

User Friendliness

We check how easy (or difficult) it is to set up your hosting account with each web host. Because going live fast & easy is the most important thing.
