Good platform for web hosting
Briana Garrett,
9.2
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.
HawkHost are amazing!!!

HawkHost are, in my opinion, genuinely amazing.
I am the type of person who reads tons of reviews for finding a product or a service which is the best fit for what I need, so I read tons of reviews on them before using them, ... More which was for the first time in 2018, when I had a website with them for a year - before I suspended for a while that start-up.
Well, I read tons of reviews on other similar services and companies, and I can say that HawkHost had the best reviews - and they still have - written by both techie guys and non-techie, like me. There were so many good reviews and still are on them, from people happy with both the technical aspects, and with the Customer Service. It is obvious that, for non-techie persons like me, a brilliant Customer Service means a lot, because how else could we be "saved" when we meet problems on the way? I mean, you other non-techie guys out there: you know very well what I mean: for us, even some simple beautiful technical jargon is like beautiful Chinese! yesterday, Wade literally saved me, with a great attitude and a great help, with things that I cannot even know how to explain to you, all I can tell you is that I will be finally able to start using my website for my new store!
BUT also, I confess I was and I will always be interested in the opinions of the other clients who understand what is about, clearly they have strong positions from where they can express what they feel and think about the services they receive, and I just read another opinion like this moments ago and again it confirmed to me that so many of these customers appreciate so much HawkHost  and see even more than what I see!
I would say, it is a winning card: what they do is genuinely exceptional. How they do it: genuinely amazing. I know that you cannot please everybody, nobody can, but they have so many Customers happy with them. And they will have many more, with such quality and attitude.
HawkHost, I am really glad you exist :).
Wade, thank you so much for your amazing support yesterday!!!!
This is a review that was not requested from me, but I wanted to write, because I am so so happy with the level of support I received yesterday from Wade and the way this support contributes to my new business!!!
Update: one day later, I want to thank you to Brian as well :) for even more support and greatest attitude, I know I must have been a bit of headache, with my lack of some skills and my need for support, but I cannot say enough how grateful I am that I received this support, I can start my business now and you've been AMAZING!!! THANK YOU!!!!

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!
Worst Customer Service... Just trying to change my account email.. 2 yrs and 5 requests.. still not changed
R Clements,
5.2
Been asking since 2018 to have my old gmail address removed and use my icloud one...
its 2020 and you cant change it yourself... you have to request it with a service ticket...
Everytime.. they keep asking for something diffe... More rent and the ticket gets closed...
Latest is to respond to email chain and put my PIN in the email???
Nice security practice....
If it comes down to HawkHost vs competitor.. ... I would say strongly consider the competitor
