Support is very bad. They took too long to fix a simple issue like enabling any feature in cpanel.

HostMantis,
This "review" is nothing more than retaliation for us not accepting your order.

When we would not accept your order, you then tried submitting another order using different name and we blocked that order as well.

For someone...Read More that claims our hosting support is "very bad" and our server speed "is also very bad", you sure seem to be trying very hard to use our service, so it's a bit difficult to take your "review" seriously.Less

HostMantis,
Notifications were sent in July of 2019 detailing the promotional code changes. Due to our overall costs increasing by a large margin, it was simply no longer possible to continue supporting promotional codes that were unsustainab...Read Morele.

If you disagreed with the decision and updated pricing, you could simply cancel your service prior to renewal and move to a cheaper, lower quality host willing to offer the unsustainable pricing you desire.

Renato Gordz,
OK, I moved myself, i m just alerting news customers to not trust in any "life time" coupon published by HOSTMANTIS. Every year this company will create any excuses to avoid this coupon.

Rafael,
HostMantis made the business decision to advertise the service pricing and coupon. This is not the first nor second time HostMantis did this, you know very well what you are doing, Bait&Switch R Us.

Above and beyond

I have been with HostMantis for about 10 years (I think) during this time they have been amazing. I am a "nerd" I guess but when I need help they are always there. I remember one time I was at my computer and they were at their de...Read Moresk (I am on the other side of the world. Australia) and the Q & A were flying back every minute or so for over an hour until my problem was fixed.

Very recently (July 2019) they went "above and beyond" expectations. If it was not for their help I would NOT have my 3 websites up and running. I find "Outside" help impossible to find, and at a Word Press meetup recently when I told others about the service from HostMantis all the others could say was "You are so lucky.. my provider would not do that and if they did it would cost hundreds of dollars)

HostMantis,
And what this client fails to mention in this "review" is that their account was suspended for spam/bulk email and this is nothing more than retaliation.

Overall nice support
