We migrated our website to Absolute Hosting because of the competitive pricing. After an initial hitch the staff was very helpful and got the website up and running quickly. Thanks in particular to Kyle B for going the extra mile to assist us. Great job!

Do not waste your time, money and effort with GoDaddy, HostGator etc etc... Absolute Hosting has it all with MUCH better support and way better pricing! The support team are amazingly quick, technically efficient and extremely helpful! No regrets... Will remain with Absolute for life!

ABSOLUTE VALUE + SUPPORT + HOSTING EXPERIENCE!

5.0
We were exploring moving to a new hosting provider specifically for the purpose of optimised WordPress hosting at an affordable price as our previous hosting provider, although offering really decent support, prices and hosting, c...Read Moreould not assist us in improving our Google PageSpeed Insights results which always gave the feedback of needing to improve the server response time for our website, despite the actual powerful optimisation plugins being used on our website.

Boy oh boy are we glad we discovered Absolute Hosting! From the moment we migrated our website hosting to their WordPress optimised hosting service our website page loading speed went through the roof and Google PageSpeed Insights is loving it - especially with the recent roll out of Google's Core Web Vitals! It must be mentioned that we subscribed to their boosted WordPress optimised hosting service and we highly recommend you spend that little bit extra (which is still very affordable) if you want to give your website, or your clients' websites, amazing results with Google PageSpeed Insights - it's so worth it and you won't be disappointed.

As for the customer support we cannot speak highly enough of the incredible and prompt support team who have been assisting us from even before we decided to sign up as a hosting client and were making initial inquiries. We don't subscribe to their premium support service - which we have seen been criticised quite harshly in some reviews shouting at them that their premium support service is some kind of cheeky money making practice - our support experience with the support team has honestly left us wondering why on earth would we need to subscribe to their premium support service because their "standard" support service has been exceptional - we always receive same day replies and solutions to anything we request support for. It's also important to mention that we are not tech educated people and the Absolute Hosting support team have always been happy to jump in and assist us to sort out any technical challenges we have faced with regard to the 'backend' of hosting and website services where tech savvy pros really know what's going on - this is invaluable to us because we can just enjoy focussing on building and designing WordPress websites knowing that the Absolute Hosting support team are always ready and willing to dive in and sort out any technical challenges we may come across with an efficient and friendly spirit.

Over the last few weeks since joining Absolute Hosting we have enjoyed speedy, friendly and patient support from Rhio G, Kyle B & Jade B - they are our soopa heros! Thanks to our experience with you guys we will be moving all of our other websites and domains to your services moving forward.

Sign up to Absolute Hosting if you are looking for amazing and affordable website hosting with the added bonus of an exceptional support team - it will be one of the best decisions you ever make for your website performance and your peace of mind knowing that the support team are always just one click away from sorting out any challenges you might face. Oh yes - and your wallet will love you too - you get a heck of a lot of bang for your buck with Absolute Hosting!

PS. This is not a paid review and we are in no way associated with Absolute Hosting except as a new hosting client. We felt it was only fair that we made as much effort writing our review as they have made supporting us!
