I have been using many different hosting providers for years. LogicWeb has a great offering. They offer scriptaculous with tons of scripts along with Lets Encypt SSL certs which is what I was looking for. I have a shared hosting account but I am able to make and customize so many server settings. Customer service is great and all my tickets get ans...

I was recommended by a friend to Shinjiru. Initially, I was doubting of their uptime because I've read lots of negative review from few pages. But, since my brother seemed okay with them and some more he had convinced me about them too then I've decided to give a try. Eventually, they are really okay! First from customer support who always there th...

As an infrastructure only hosting provider I cannot fault OVH, having used them for 3+ years now I have never had an outage that wasn't my fault or I wasn't informed about and had fixed immediately. Maybe I've been lucky. I think a lot of people don't realise that the guys in support from OVH will treat any support queries that aren't physical s...

Hello, OVH is one of the worst providers. They cheated me by providing blacklisted IP's for my VPS. Its about 20 days and the issue not resolved. They scammed my money and didn't refund or changed the IP's. Be frank the worst provider in the world. Attached the screenshot of OVH support admin responses. Check the date at bottoms for there ...

Was a great service provider "Smartyhost" they got bought by Uber Global and in turn have been bought by Netregistry. Incompetence and more incompetence. No one can answer questions. Currently being migrated to Netregistry. Not only have they messed up the migration but the e-mail and web DNS records. Causing a failure of both website and email.

I've used three providers before finding Spiral, and they've been fantastic so far. They migrated my entire site over for free (which my previous provider said they'd charged €70 for) and they're surprisingly quick with replying. I've never felt like I've been waiting a long time for a reply from their tech support. I'd say I've never waited more ...
