Standard Hosting with Everything You Need
John R.,

I just have their entry level hosting and it has been working perfectly for me. I have worked with other hosting companies before, and none of them are as good. If you want hosting based in the Czech Republic, make sure you... More look this one over and see if they have what you need. I think they will. Less
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

Our URL has been down for months
Sarah Brooks,
2.0
Royally messed up the transfer of our domain, putting in the name of the domain provider we were moving from as the holder at the central domain registry. Several months have passed, numerous phone calls and we still have no ... More website. Every time we think we are there, there is another hurdle to pass. They are woefully ill-equipped to deal with a company buying out another company and needing them to change administrative contacts etc. The whole process has been one of pain. 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!
