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.
Solid and reliable host.

Excellent website, has tons of features, good prices. Support is fast and actually gets things solved. They are really good enough to sign up with. So far I'm very pleased with this company. I have never encountered any probl... More ems and customer support has always been very helpful whenever I contact them. Services are affordable and decent. Less

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!
Broken English; False Anycast DNS; 14 Day Refund; Minimum 6 Month Billing Period
Brad Darb,

If you don't read French, you will struggle with PlanetHoster documentation; English documentation is fragmented at best. They claim an anycast DNS network, but the reality it is located only in Europe and Montreal; DNS time... More s lag in western North America and anywhere else outside of Europe. Two unicast DNS would server the purpose equally well. After having enough of the whole affair after three weeks I founld out that they only offer a two week refund period, so I am committed to their 6 month minimum billing period. Less
