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.
good cheap VPS

I got the 1Euro VPS, and it runs good with good uptime and support. Some of the support tools open in Italian, but you can select English from dropdown menu. I have had to contact support only once, and got a good response (i... More n English) and problem was cleared. Less

Their hosting and customer service used to be good but is very poor now. Over two hour on-hold time.
Frederick Berry,

I have been a customer since 2014. Their customer service standards are poor at best. Their on-hold time is poor at best with hold times of two hours. Today was worse - after holding for 1:58 mins for a rep to pick up, he ... More talked for 3 mins then went away. Fifteen mins later it shows we are still on the phone but he is no where to be found. VERY POOR!!!! Less
Horrible experience

I tried several VMs - was never able to really use them. The most annoying experience is with access to VM - the remote access is simply hell! No way to access password change and the support is catastrophic.
