I accidentally deleted my entire website (my fault), and my backups weren't working properly, but they managed to provide a backup and support within record time. Saved me from a panic attack. Truly appreciate that! Some cons... More : a bit slower than my previous BlueHost, but definitely far less expensive. Also uses the latest MySQL on VPS only, not shared hosting. Less

If you are like me and need a good support team for your Internet presence, then GlowHost.com is the hosting company for you.
I was looking for a hosting company that would allow me to upload my Dreamweaver files and GlowHost... More was one of the top companies recommended in my Internet search. Uploading my files to GlowHost servers was slick and easy as it could be. I was online immediately!
I ordered GlowHost’s “Search Engines and Social Media Starter Bundle,” and they quickly set about setting this up. They even took care of things I had not even thought of, like setting up a free SSL Certificate and even creating the redirect for me from http:// to https://.
Wow! I am impressed. Their communication is detailed, but concise. Their support is phenomenal! Less

To Whom It May Concern
We have been held as a hostage by Arvixe, Arvixe has blocked our access to all our company data, our emails, all the online tools we have been running on our websites for 300+ customers of ours.
As an o... More rganization we have the right to all the data stored and backed up with ARVIXE, if Arvixe team is so incompetent to solve such a grave issue first-hand, the least they can do is provide us with our data so that we don’t suffer these huge losses. More than 72 hours have passed just to receive a response and for the account to get activated. It’s simply unacceptable in today’s world for any IT company. Arvixe has ruined all our reputation that we have built in over 18 years in merely 3 days.
Our Account has been suspended due to a billing issue. Our account was created six years back when we had Mr. Soni as one of our partners and the account was created using his credit card (not on his name). Now when Mr. Soni has left our organization, Arvixe has automatically charged a six years old credit card which was not supposed to be charged for the invoice amount $229.42. Unaware of the charge Mr. Soni disputed this transaction and we weren’t informed about the same by Arvixe billing team, without reaching out to us and being completely inconsiderate about how severely it could affect our business ARVIXE TEAM suspended our account.
We have been asking for our account access for over 3 days so we can pay our invoices to take our account out of suspension but no one is there to take care of it. They just have a chat client, no phone or email address to address this issue directly. After chatting with their agents, we have always been asked for the same documentation over and over that we have submitted every time. After every submission we have been assured that someone will get back us to take the updated payment info but no one ever emailed or called to take the payment. This is happening 5 times in every 24 hours.
To take our account out of suspension, we have been requesting and cooperating with Arvixe chat support executives which are overseas, we have also provided all the required proofs, yet no action has been taken. We haven’t been able to login to our account. We have tried to reach out several times to the billing team to make the required payment but no response. We have never seen a company who doesn’t even have representatives to even accept the payment.
We have been facing this issue for over 3 days now – our sites, online customer tools, emails and all our data is inaccessible. We are suffering extensive Business Losses due to the unprofessionalism of ARVIXE TEAM. We provide services to more than 700 hotels and due to this suspension, we aren’t able to provide any tech support and are refunding all our customers due to no service. So far we have incurred $7800.00 in loss of revenue because of these documented refunds.
We've been waiting since 23rd February to present but still there is no response from Arvixe.
Attached are all the proofs that I have been continuously submitting to the ARVIXE SUPPORT TEAM.

I chose Glowhost because they offered Shoutcast and web hosting in one package. Directly after ordering, I noted that my entire control panel was in Chinese. I then had to work with support for hours before my site could be p... More ublished, and was asked to scan and send copies of government issued identification. My Shoutcast server went down on the second day, requiring me to contact support a second time. My streaming specifications were also not as advertised, which I had to contact support to resolve. When it came to building my website, I would have liked to have seen more tools to create a professional looking site. Ultimately, I decided to find a more trustworthy host that could provide better tools to actually build my website. When I tried to invoke Glowhost's Money Back Satisfaction Guarantee, I was told that I'd be charged for my domain name that was originally offered for free, and that the charge would come out of my hosting refund. I was sent links to terms and conditions that differed from what I'd already read. After mentioning my intentions of sharing my experiences, I was then told that they could offer me the full refund as an "exception." I replied that I had no intention of withholding details of my experience, and the offer was revoked. In short, Glowhost was not for me. I felt misled by the Satisfaction Guarantee and was dissatisfied in the amount of issues that arose within my first week alone. For anyone looking for web hosting services, Glowhost has timely technical support but was far from pain free for me and abides by the same fine print any cheaper, more popular, professional, and easier to use host does as well.
