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

Digital Ocean is a highly customisable cloud hosting service with reasonable rates. The only drawback for non-technical customers is you will need to configure your server VIA the command-line – the good thing is Digital Ocea... More n has easy to follow documentation that shows you how to do this among many other things. Less

Absolutely the worst mistake of my business life.

I subscribed to this DNS hosting for my business. I was unaware that they don't offer human beings for technical support. When I transferred my DNS and services to Spectrum, AWS did not do it correctly, and caused my servic... More es to be screwed up since March 2021 until now 9/23/21.
I finally got a human being at AWS who claims that I did something wrong (I wouldn't even know how to) and that they are going to fix it and contact me about it. Right.
Worst sompany ever and Spectrum, they are #2.
What a hellish nightmare.

They deleted my server, my data base, my business without telling me because there was a balance of 24 usd!!! After 5 years being with them!
By the way no need to send your reply template. Check at other bad reviews something... More is obviously not right with you guys and I am currently reviewing my case with my lawyer for the damage your company created by just destroying my 5 years business for a miss payment of 24 usd!!! Shame on you! Less
