Been with APlus.net and predecessors since the 1990's
Paul Snyder,

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

I've worked with this company for ten years, and I utilize their managed WordPress products in addition to their virtual servers. Never experienced downtime or problems besides those of my own making. They provide the best cu... More stomer service around. The price point is lower in my opinion and really competitive. Outstanding value for the money. 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!

Ayant subi un prélèvement non autorisé sur mon compte provenant de leur entreprise j'ai voulu savoir de quoi il retournait. Il s'avère que l'entreprise était incapable de me fournir de tels documents justifiant de ma transact... More ion. une entreprise normale aurait donc annulé la transaction puisque aucun service ne m'a été rendu. Mais cette entreprise a préféré se cacher derrière ses procédures pour éviter d'avoir à me rembourser une somme absolument ridicule Less
