Good platform for web hosting
Briana Garrett,

I find them very good platform to purchase web hosting services. I will surely recommend them with some other good options like Hostinger, Godaddy and Domainracer to make a best choice.
Great hosting server

I have a website on Downtown Host since 2009. Since that time my site was down only 6 times for a small time each. Even when they migrated to a better server it was ultra fast and they sent me a message before so I could info... More rm my visitors when and why my site would be offline. I have a large traffic and on my previous server my site was offline like 3 / 4 times per year.
They have lots of plans, good price and always were very helpful when I needed them. Support is effective and extremely fast in answer.
If I had another website, I would for sure sign up with them again.

Very bad service

Staff trained wrongly, they say lies, cheating on you constantly. I cannot get rid of this company now, they keep on attacking you with offers and don’t let go easy, putting additional charges, very annoying people, my nightmare!
Not what it used to be

Tickets remain open, there is no longer a chat. My SSL certificate expired recently and there is no way on the site to correct it. If you go to certificates the "buy" is dead, and no prices are listed. Basically the site is a... More bit of a ghost site. A lot of dead error pages. Was on Downtown host since 2013. Support WAS 5 stars when I stared, with Jorge always at the helm. I just moved my forum to another host. Downtown host is a ghost of what it was. Less
