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.
Good Experience

iKoula are a very good hosting company for smaller projects, if you are looking to use their servers a CDN server then i'd almost straight away recommend it, they are solid fast and have good support, We've only ever expirenc... More e a small bit of downtime and that was due to maintaince work, the servers have never crashed on us since we started using them.
Well done for your work iKoula

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!
Worst experience
Den B,

So, I am using dedicated server for 6 months. I would love to use it more, but I have to move to another hosting. Support is awful. You can wait for reply for 2 days. They never excuse for "no reply" or delays. It looks total... More ly disrespectful. The biggest problem for me - internet connection. During these 6 months I've got, at least, 3 huge issues with the internet. One time I couldn't connect to my server for 4 days. Last (current) problem - very low speed. While offered 1 Gbps, I have 5 Mbit/s download, and 3 Mbit/s upload. I know that 1 Gbps is common bandwidth, but not 5 Mbit/s ....
Today I received reply from support that issue is not on their side and fixing this issue may take up to 2-3 weeks. That's it. No excuses or offering any discount for inconvenience, maybe any other server in different DC. Absolutely nothing. How ridiculous is that? Every time I have issue, support tells me that issue is not on their side. So disappointed.
