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

Do not host at hostmantis.com

Do not host at hostmantis.com It's a worst hosting company. They have a lot of down time.
The support is not friendly and not professional.
There are close accounts for nothing.
hostmantis.com is a bad hosting company
HostMantis
HostMantis,
We do not tolerate abusive accounts, so yes, if you abuse our services it will not be ignored. Your negative review is nothing more than false claims and retaliation for us not tolerating your abusive account.
Tom
Tom,
This is a real opinion about HostMantis.
Like you can see here and in more other places HostMantis has many BAD REVIEWS.
And if somebody wrote something else may be is false review.
HostMantis.com is a worst hosting scammers who suspend accounts with fake problems.
Henry
Henry,
No, the review is no real. I use HostMantis and it has been reliable as the rock of Gibraltar and extremely speedy. The only negative reviews are from many years ago before their major restructuring.

You had a WordPress installation on one of our Windows hosting plans and had it so loaded with plugins, you were running out of system resources, continuously causing your application pool to fail, resulting in the 503 error.

W...Read Moree disabled some plugins and ultimately manually moved your account a more appropriate premium Linux hosting plan/server and went above and beyond and fixed all the issues you had so the site is now working properly for you.

Horrible "service"

Overall nice support
