I am fully satisfied
Silvano Berardi,

Your sites will be in good hands, dudes. Personally, I'm a fully satisfied Hostwinds customer. They are rock. High 99% uptime and very fast servers. I developed my Wordpress Website with optimum speed using the available soft... More aculous addon in the Cpanel. Well done! Less

The worst e-mail and domain hosting service
Hakan Esin,
3.6
We have been using their services for a while. Our e-mails and domain are going down all of a sudden without any notice, any apology, or any information. 2 times in the same week, our whole corporate e-mails went down, and th... More e first one last for 4 days. We get no explanation and no timeline other than their saying "we are performing emergency maintenance". This is totally unacceptable. They do not know anything about professionalism. Call center is only accessible during US working hours. Live chat is NOT LIVE, you have to leave a message!!! And when you are even able to chat by chance, all you get is "We are performing maintenancae". Less
Nickle and Diming
Brian W,
3.6
I signed up for $10.99 per month because of the good reviews. My first month was discounted 25%. Then I notice that they are charging me $3 extra per month just to have backups. That is just plain nickle and diming. BACKUP SHOULD BE INCLUDED!
