My site got too popular for its own good a year ago and I had to pick a new hosting company. I went with web24 because of the great reviews I read on it. I know they are expensive, but they are well worth the investment if you have a high traffic site.

If HIV and cancer were combined to create a hosting service

This hosting service should be avoided at all costs. Terrible servers, terrible service you have to interrogate them every time you order something to make sure it what you wanted.

No terminal access for private servers and they have stripped out any cPanel control even on private servers

100% Unreliable

Web24 use simple cpanel hosting just like thousands of other hosting companies but they don't seem to have a clue how to configure it. Touch any of the PHP settings and the server crashes. A crashed server is allocated a "medium p...Read Moreriority" support ticket. None of the error reporting works in cpanel either. Support is via an Indian call centre where the operators have no apparent technical knowledge and the servers are slower than dial up speed. Stay away.Less

Good solid servers and reliable network but extremely poor support

I've been using Web24 for a couple of years and have several servers with them. Their day time support is great when you get hold of the correct support staff, but their after hour support might as well not exists. They couldn't c...Read Moreomplete a critical change that was requested 3 days ago and I now need to wait until Monday to get feedback ... one major issue with the company is that you are not able to get in touch with any of the actual engineers in the server room when things go wrong. I've been in this industry for 22 years, yet their support staff refuse to let me help resolve the issue!

I had a previous incident where their support staff argued with me for over 30 minutes that his change didn't impact our firewall - which it did. Their support staff is not as capable as needed.

If you are planning on using web24 - make sure that your internal IT team can support the server 100%. You need to take full personal responsibility as you can't reply in their support services.
