The best 'proof' of a happy customer is repeat business

Service used: Shared - Package 3
Many hosts are good at the "flirting" for your business -- intro rates, sound and look good ... but it's not the first sale that really tells you that a company is good -- it's the second and subsequent ones.

I'm happy to say I ... Read More

Worst host. Its like they all started yesterday

Service used: Shared
Pair is one of those hosts that sells unlimited bandwidth shared hosting. Then, you will have a bandwidth limit. Go over it and your site is shut down. Thats it for this month. No notice, just shut things down. They have no legal ... Read More

Looks like you have someone else confused with pair.

From Pair:
Why don’t you offer “unlimited bandwidth”?

The simple answer is “because there’s no such thing.” Any provider who claims to offer “unlimited bandwidth” either ...Read More

Really True
They clearly do NOT offer "unlimited bandwidth" shared hosting (and have been vocally opposed to that in the past), so your review is basically nonsense right from the start. Anybody can look at their shared hosting plans and see the actual facts instead of your ridiculous claims.

Really True is obviously Pair Networks. What happens when you get a fake cease and desist of no merit? Thats right, you just pull the plug in fear allowing competition to shut down any Pair customer without any validity. Thats a fact that can be proven in writing. Want to fight about it in court?

You said "Pair is one of those hosts that sells unlimited bandwidth shared hosting." They don't sell unlimited bandwidth hosting. (https://www.pair.com/support/kb/frequently-asked-questions-account-features/#18) You've clearly mis...Read More

Good hosting with options for everyone

Pair Networks is a well established company that has customers throughout the world.  They offer many different hosting packages, so there is something for all types of websites.  They start with entry level shared hosting, where you can choose from several options based on your specific needs.

You can also have VPS or dedicated hosting packages if you are running a busier website or need additional control.  Since they’ve been operating since 1996 they have really created a strong reputation over the years for being one of the best hosting companies in operation today.

Another nice benefit of this company is that they are very dedicated to ‘green hosting,’ which essentially means that they are taking steps to reduce any environmental impact their data centers have.  This is typically done by using energy efficient operations and planting trees or other plants to help offset any pollution that is created by their operations.

Uptime & Reliability

Compare
9

Excellent uptime and stability

The reliability of their hosting is very good at all levels.  They advertise the fact that their actual uptime is well above 99.9%, which is quite impressive.  They also have redundant network connections, daily data backups and redundant power supplies in their data centers.  All of this adds up to a stable environment that will help to avoid any type of unexpected downtime.

Even their shared hosting services seem to have a very stable environment, which is a good sign that they are not overselling their servers.

Features

Compare
9

A variety of features at every level

There are hosting packages available at all price points to meet the needs of virtually any site.  Their entry level shared hosting services will get the job done for most personal blogs and small business sites.  You can move up to VPS hosting options for the midsized web hosting needs.  If you are running a large business or a very busy page, their dedicated hosting will provide you with the power and flexibility you need.

In addition to just getting more powerful hosting when you move up to a higher package, you will also get improved services.  For example, the bottom level packages don’t come with 24/7 live support, but that becomes available with VPS and dedicated packages, or even higher end shared options.

In addition to just choosing the right package, you can also get access to things like SSL certificates, a PHP Hypertext preprocessor, and merchant specific accounts.

Support

Compare
9

Support services improve as you move up in package levels

The technical support provided by this company is good.  They are quick to help you with just about any type of problem.  If you opt for a higher level package, you will get a toll-free tech support number that is staffed 24/7/365.  Lower packages have to go through their online ticketing system, which seems to still give quick resolutions to most issues.

Pricing

Compare
8

Prices at higher levels are slightly above industry average

The base pricing for shared hosting and other small to mid packages is about average.  Once you get into their higher end options, however, the price is a little more than what you will likely see with other companies.  Some of their customers have complained about this high price, but overall people seem to be happy with the service they get for what they are paying.

Summary

Good hosting options for all types of customers

The overall service that is provided by Pair Networks is good at all levels. They have been in business a long time and clearly know what they are doing.  They do a good job at keeping up with all the latest technologies and innovations with web hosting, which is another good perk of going with Pair Networks

Pros:

  • Great hosting packages at all levels
  • Great tech support, especially for higher hosting packages
  • Environmentally friendly hosting

Cons:

  • Entry level packages don't have 24/7 phone support
  • Some packages are priced higher than normal
