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
Great Support and Price
Grant Oakes,

I've used Hostwinds for nearly 2 years and they have been excellent during my stay. However, I am looking at leaving because they have IP issues, mainly, some of the major (Gmail, Outlook, MSN, etc) ISP's block email traffic,... More claiming it's SPAM. Apparently, they have some SPAMMERS on their servers and some IP blocks are blacklisted. I have been forced to get a Gmail account so I can send outbound emails, which is a major pain. I've raised this issue with tech support too many times to count but the problem persists. I'd love to stay with them but I have to move on. Less

Our URL has been down for months
Sarah Brooks,

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
Terrible hosting
STEPHANIE GILLUM,

Terrible hosting. Even one Wordpress site does not work on the "Ultimate Business" tariff plan!!! The support service does not solve the problem! When I don't use the site, the RAM is not used. As soon as I work with the site... More , I do elementary things: creating a new Wordpress page, adding a product, then the RAM is working at maximum and the site gives a 503 error. This can't be on a simple Wordpress site. Your hosting works disgusting! Less
