Very good hosting experience!
Dene Evanson,

Happy using Hostwinds hosting service. They also offer other web builders for more experienced users. I've got a network of e-commerce sites that were recently developed. The most common issue I had was the ability to have se... More parate accounts, most hosts I found didn’t support this. They use Raid 10. Setting up email was quick and easy. Less

3 Essentials has worsened to a dangerous level for any Digital Marketing agency.

3 Essentials has worsened to a dangerous level for any Digital Marketing agency.
I have been a customer of 3 Essentials Hosting since July 2011.
For a while they did what they were asked to do: working websites and emails and... More available, competent support.
Lately they have failed in every way.
I have 5 websites down since 4 days due to an attack.
There had already been 2 more attacks that knocked down other sites in the last month.
Their support can't bring the sites online, nor does it give me the opportunity to migrate the sites to another hosting company.
A real terror.
I'm hostage to a bunch of incompetents without knowing why, because I've never done them harm. I always paid them on time and more expensive than the market average.
