Absolutely horrible. Terrible support. Couldn't even get the VPS Hosting to work...

They claim to have 24/7/365 support. We signed up for service and nothing worked. We contacted support and they finally got back to us over a day later and solved nothing. We cancelled the service and are still waiting for a refun...Read Mored but had to dispute the charge through Paypal. They also recommended a link to download the REQUIRED software to supposedly run the VPS which place MALWARE/PUP programs on our computer and browser. Stay far away from this company.Less

Roger Jenkins from United States,

Bad bad and bad.

Started off great for a few months, then mysteriously my account kept getting hacked. Support blamed my Wordpress plugins and outdated wordpress installs. Once everything was updated the account got hacked again. I asked why and h...Read Moreow, PowerUpHosting's Support never did attempt to answer. They only suspended my account and said I was to fix the problem. Funny thing is, once the account is suspended, one cannot FTP nor even access the cPanel... How is one supposed to get in there and attempt to fix the problem?

I even deleted the entire content of the account, and yet my resources including memory and CPU were maxing at at 100%. Support said my account was still hacked, despite having zero files on the server, zero databases and zero email accounts. PowerUpHosting support said that I'll now need a new account. They went ahead and gave me a 'new' account and login. I've locally scanned the entire account and its websites on my end using the latest virus definitions from ESET and BitDefender which cleaned/deleted any kind of infected file. Uploaded the contents to my directory root on PowerUpHosting's server and support reinstated my account. Or so I thought..

Turns out after all my effort to clean, compress, and re-upload my account contents, PowerUpHosting's support reinstated my account from their own previous backup that had still been infected!! Support was useless. I get another email saying "Your account has been compromised again, and you need to clean it or you will be banned". Well no SHIT! You uploaded an old copy of my infected account! What a joke, it is like being stuck in the movie groundhogs day.

Its been nearly a month and all my websites are still down and so is my account. The CEO no longer responds to me on Skype and does not seem to care. Lesson learned, you get what you pay for, and their product is absolute garbage. They were keen on me submitting a review about their hosting, but I told them I usually wait a few months after I am with a new host before giving any review. It has only been 5 months with them, most of the time my accounts have been down due to server outages and now the latest "Hacked Account" which I am fairly certain came from their own side.

Please avoid this company.

Used to be good, now total crap

I've been with them for close to 4 years and at the beginning they were great! Hands down great customer support and pretty affordable.
But the last 3-4 months have been a total disaster - down time, slow loading times when my si...Read Morete is indeed up and the customer support went from answering tickets in 20 minutes to hours.
And I'm not the only one complaining - check on blackhatworld and see the bad recent reviews.
Stay away from powerup hosting!

Uptime & Reliability

Very Stable Hosting Provider

All the hosting options come with a 99.9% uptime guarantee for the hardware and network. This is the industry standard guarantee, and will provide some recourse should there be any type of outage. They also have a 45-day money back guarantee so if you are not happy with the stability of the hosting, or anything else, a refund can be given. Hosting with this company is extremely reliable thanks to the use of high end hardware, including solid state drives, on all their servers. They also operate in modern datacenters to help avoid any unexpected outages.


Tons of Attractive Features

When looking at the website from Power Up Hosting, you will see that there are a lot of great features. Starting with the shared hosting packages, you will get solid state drives with RAID 10 configuration, LiteSpeed servers, cPanel, and the option to choose the location of your physical server from places throughout the US and EU. One-click installation options are also available and can help you get your site up and running far faster than would otherwise be possible. VPS hosting is also available and comes with similar features as the shared options, but with greater levels of control. You can also choose between windows and Citrix for the operating system.

If you need all the power and full control over an entire server, the dedicated servers are the perfect solution. They have just two options to choose from, one with 8 cores and one with 16.  The disk space is all on solid state drives, and you can select how much RAM you need. These servers will be sufficient to run almost any type of site without any trouble.


Helpful Tech Support 24/7/365

If you run into any type of issues with the hosting, you can contact the technical support teams any time, 24/7. They are experienced and able to work through any type of issue whether it is related to hardware, software, or even user information. The technicians have a good reputation for being helpful and willing to work with you on anything you need help with.


Pricing is Not Clearly Listed

The pricing with this company is on par with what you would expect to pay from just about any other hosting provider. What is a little annoying, however, is that they don’t list the prices clearly on their pages. You have to go through the initial registration process to sign up before it will actually tell you how much you’ll have to pay. Most people would much prefer to be able to see what they will have to pay before moving forward with the purchasing process. This is especially true when looking at lower level hosting like the shared servers.

User Friendly

Some Minor Issues

Most people won’t have any trouble using the services from this company once they have made their order. They use cPanel, which is the industry standard, so people will be familiar with it in most cases. They also offer support whenever people have questions or other issues. Their website makes finding the information about their services, especially pricing, a little complicated to figure out. If they would fix that issue, that would make this company much easier to work with.


Excellent Hosting

While there are a few little things here and there that can be annoying, the overall quality of the hosting is quite good. The vast majority of their customers are happy with the service they receive, and their continued growth is a good sign of this. Whether you’re looking to run a small personal website, or a page for a large company, they can provide you with the hosting that is needed.
