Very responsive support!
Mathieu Cohen,

I was looking for a cost effective hosting solution for a data driven website with both SQL server and MS Access database support. I took Hostforlife on a 3 months trial. They were easy to setup and I had issue with my SSL, I... More contacted their support and they respond the email within 10 minutes. They also solved the problem within few hours.
I also purchase schedule task addon for my files and database. I get a daily backup report showing that the data has been backed up, and before publishing any changes I force an additional backup. I have now taken 3 years contract with Hostforlife.

You will pay extra money for basic web server functionality
Dmytro S,

I had a very bad experience with this hosting. There was no trial period, so I had to pay 20 EUR for first 3 month. Fine, not a big deal. So I paid and wait few hours for email with hosting details. Then I started to setup my... More website on their hosting, and by the some reason PUT and DELETE HTTP methods didn't worked. I spent few hours to understand what I'm doing wrong. Then I wrote to support team, and it turns out that PUT and DELETE methods are disabled on web server! And I have to pay extra 15 EUR for setup this functionality on web server by support team! And there is no human readable text on their web site about this "extra" feature. So after such bad customer experience I found other hosting and decided to get my 20 EUR back. After my request to return my money, support team said that they can enable HTTP methods for free. So they just tried to scam 15 EUR, and when I refuse to pay and asked about withdraw my 20 EUR they agree to enable HTTP methods. Very bad customer experience. So I continued ask for withdraw my 20 EUR. On their web site I can see text like "30 Days Money Back Guarantee". And it turns out, that in their terms of use (which usually nobody read) said that there is non refundable 15 EUR for their "setup". So I managed to return only 5 EUR. If you don't want to pay extra money for basic web server functionality, I'm strongly don't recommend this hosting. Less
