Hostwinds response times are lightning fast

Service used: VPS
Well, hostwinds.com lived up to the task so far in reliability and probably the best customer service I've had - no headaches whatsoever in helping me get set up. I have already switched to their VPS hosting accounts and everything works perfect. I highly recommend them.

Unbeatable service

What I liked most is their solid servers which I have never noticed down or performing in a slow manner. Customer support is also nice, reply in 20-30 minutes and keep tracking your ticket until everything is solved. Thanks for your job, Hostwinds.

Good hosting at a discount price

Hostwinds is a good hosting company that is focused on providing affordable services to their customers no matter which level of services they need.  They have been in business since 2010, working out of their Dallas Texas data center.

They offer shared hosting, cloud hosting, VPS and one dedicated server option.  While their main focus is on providing a good price, they still have a good list of services that you can choose from.  You won't, however, find the high end servers and other resources that many other hosts are offering.  That being said, the equipment that is used will still be more than enough for most customers looking for good hosting.

Their data center is very nice with backup power supplies, network connections and armed guards on site.  They also offer good technical support and friendly customer services, which makes working with this company much easier.

Uptime & Reliability

Compare
9

99.9% uptime guarantee

This company has a surprisingly reliable service and includes a 99.9% uptime guarantee.  Many people would expect that a discount hosting company would oversell their shared hosting services, but that doesn't actually seem to happen with this company.

Another nice perk here is that they have a 100% satisfaction guarantee with the 60 day money back guarantee available.  This makes them a great option for anyone who is looking for good services at a low price.

Features

Compare
9

Many different features to choose from

Most of what you see in their hosting packages is fairly standard.  Some of the hardware is not quite as powerful as you may expect at other companies, but the price they charge makes up for that fact. In addition to their normal services, they do offer some nice upgrade options, including the ability to have your hardware upgraded quickly and easily.

They offer a 60 day money back guarantee, which is twice what most other companies are providing.  They also have instant setup options for their hosting packages and free migration from virtually any other hosting company.

All their hosting packages come with unlimited bandwidth and disk space, though of course if this is abused your account can get suspended.  They also don't limit FTP accounts, email accounts, subdomains or MySQL accounts.

Support

Compare
9

Qualified US based tech support

If you run into any type of problem you will be able to contact their US based technical support team 24 hours per day.  There have been some complaints from current and former customers that their support teams can take a little longer than desired to get an issue resolved, but overall the support teams seem to do a good job.

 

Pricing

Compare
10

Excellent pricing for all their hosting options

The pricing is clearly where Hostwinds is looking to compete with the other options out there.  They have great prices for all their packages, which is nice to see.  The most impressive option that I saw was at their VPS level, which starts at under $10 per month.  Of course, whenever you work with a discount company, the quality has to give in some areas.  In this case, it is some of the server specs that you'll get.  Fortunately, however, most people who are looking for web hosting don't actually need the high end servers that many other hosting companies use.

Summary

Very nice hosting at a great price

The overall user experience with this company will be good.  There have been very few complaints about the company on their social media accounts or other online locations.  The fact that they are a low priced option would normally have raised some flags, but it seems that they do a good job balancing price and quality of services.

Pros:

  • Excellent prices
  • Many great features
  • Hosting options at all levels
  • 60 day money back guarantee

Cons:

  • Server specs slightly lower than competition
  • Limited number of dedicated server plans
