Nice Hosting
Muzaffer Bhat,

I host a blog site http://digitalbhat.com with GoDaddy and found it satisfactory. I recommend this host to all on merit basis and overall experience I had with the service provider.
Been with APlus.net and predecessors since the 1990's

I see mostly very negative reviews for APlus. They seem to be mostly from novice users who want wordpress like sites to geeks who want bleeding edge tech. We have been using APlus and the predecessors for some 20 years. We ha... More ve had maybe 5 hours downtime and no major issues. APlus may not be great, but for us it has proven to be 99.9% reliable and extremely cheap ($9.00 month legacy plan for 8 active websites). The only issue is that they offer premium Comodo SSL certificates, which makes it more expensive for https (typically $90 a year). The good part to the Comodo certs is that they include lots of extras not available with plain vanilla ssl. Less

If you value your sanity - STAY AWAY!

Probably the WORST host around. Stay away from these guys.
Their support team doesn't know. They don't learn. They don't care.
Every single time I have a support issue with them, the first thing I hear is - oh, your site isn'... More t hosted with us! Why? Because I have SiteLock for my security (their partner, by the way) and so SiteLock's IP is in the A record. It's a redirection. But no - no one in their team has figured this out in the last two years.
So then we go through the same nonsense every time - back and forth emails, back and forth phone calls, manager, senior tech person whatever. This is before they can ever GET to the actual support issue!
If you value your sanity even slightly - STAY AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY!
