Downtime surprise

Service used: Cloud - CloudSites Standard
Gearhost is reliable 99% of the time...but when they do go down for service, they have a very annoying habit of not notifying the customer.
I do a lot of programming and testing and hate it when i cant connect.

Support

Surprisingly responsive tech support

Gearhost.com can be reached by telephone, email,  and by submitting a ticket from their contact form on their website.  Most low cost hosting companies cut back on support, but from what I have been able to find, that is not the case here.  They also have a nice FAQ and web forums, which is a great way to learn how to run your site.

Summary

Nice option for low cost/free cloud hosting

I recommend Gearhost.com for their web hosting services based on the amount of satisfied customers that are currently within their network. As of  2015 Gearhost.com has over 10,000 customers using their applications and services for their websites hosting provider. Their plans are very competitive compared to other well-known hosting providers. They have an easy to understand pricing without having to break your budget. You can pay as you go and pay as you need. I like to recommend  hosting companies that offer real time support and use powerful network connections. Gearhost.com offers reliable network solutions and a easy to use control panel to easily create, deploy and scale with a single click.  Gearhost.com is a website worth using as your hosting provider.
