Great Support and Price

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

Ich hatte ein Problem bei dem der Kundenservice mir gut helfen konnte. Sie haben mir schnellst möglich geantwortet und von sich aus das Problem kostenfrei behoben. Da ich selber keine Ahnung von WordPress hatte, habe ich mich... More um diesen Service sehr gefreut. 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
Alfahosting Servers are not secured

I had hosting on Alfahosting Servers for more than 8 years. Business L Plan. Recently my site got malware and it was flagged by google. When I asked Alfahosting company to run the malware scan, they did run 2 times but found ... More no malwares. I told them repeatedly that my Website is Flagged by Google, so it must have malwares. The customer support behaved very badly and said they can't do anything for it. Finally I had to pay malware removing company extra amount to find and remove those malwares. There were couple of malwares. Alfahosting doesn't seem to have secured servers. Moreover their custome care is bad. Less
