Good Clear Support and No-nonsense Hosting
Loretta Wollering,

Awesome help ticket service - it was clear, timely, easy to understand, and USEFUL. Best. I really never had a problem with them. Their knowledge base is good, and anytime I fill out a help ticket, I get useful, easy to un... More derstand advice and follow-ups. Faster speed and easier to deal with. Not the cheapest, but definitely better prices than lots of other hosting out there. And very decent service. Less

Worst Company
paban bhuyan,

I have used Hostripples for 2 years and enjoyed their pathetic service.
If you use their service you have to sit infront of your computer the entire day to solve the server issues. In a nutshell, here is what Hostripples is:
... More Pros: Cheap Hosting
Cons:
1. All emails will delivered to spam (Cpanel emails)
2. Very slow server.
3. The account will get suspended every alternate day. And you have to hire a developer on regular basis.
4. IP gets blocked too often. Which means your website will not work on certain networks and you have to contact them and get it fixed.
5. Customer support is pathetic.

The A2 FTP server is extremly slow for any user from any place in the world. Still A2 claims everything is fine and refuses to do anything about it. I never ever got such horrible support
