AWS Customer Support Review By someone in this business for 17 years and owns 5 other accounts with Server providers
Aziz Baroody,

If anyone ever wants to know the truth and facts about AWS Customer Supports Vs GoDaddy, Hostway, Hosting Source, Google, Apple READ THIS:
7 years now dealing with AWS I cannot explain how many times they have gone beyond wha... More t their rules and Regs and policies are to HELP, SUPPORT and maintain whatever it takes for AWS to serve and keep us as a client.
They are the NUMBER 1 Company and they already WON Best Customer Support globally as far as I am concerned

AWS Free Tier Scam -
bekir cuneyt bayraktar,

AWS Free Tier Scam, No wonder how Jeff Bezos is getting richer and richer, by scamming people with AMAZON Web services. Actually not just AWS, I believe all amazon services are SCAM. First they are sending emails to "Try out ... More AWS with free tier" services. All was i did tried launching 2 instances via Terraform Cloud for my study. And next month i got charged 8.50 SGD to my account, (I didn't even use the instances after launch. But Don't worry Amazon, you can only fool people once. Less
Questionable service and support
Robert Liroff,

Service is friendly, but overall site support is definitely mixed - not sure if the long-term price is worth it.
I am concerned that I was not alert to a feature offering me SSL layer protection for my site, the absence of wh... More ich may have steered away potential clients. I only found out today, upon calling for a break in my site's functioning today, and inquiring about such protection, that it had been offered in my plan for a while but never turned on!
A real problem in communication with your customers. It was only due to the extremely helpful support person whom I contacted today that I satisfactorily resolved the two issues troubling my site.

Winner: Bluehost

Bruno Mirchevski Hosting Expert

Amazon Web Services and BlueHost both have a lot of nice features and a few drawbacks. They are both rated quite well by their users, and they each have a nice reliable hosting environment. Looking at the ratings from their actual users, BlueHost performs better on pricing and user friendliness. You can also get shared and VPS hosting from BlueHost, which aren’t available from Amazon. These added services and great reputation helped us to name BlueHost as the winner of this comparison.
