It's nice, though there are some problems
Nabil Alamin,

Domains and at a great price, though an issue arises when you only want a domain with no hosting; SSL certificates don't see to work with domains (with no hosting) and you aren't t told this during purchase. I tried to get a ... More refund, but it wasn't possible due to their terms, so I let it go. Not really happy about that particular experience. Less
Great Support and Price

I've used Hostwinds for nearly 2 years and they have been excellent during my stay. However, I am looking at leaving because they have IP issues, mainly, some of the major (Gmail, Outlook, MSN, etc) ISP's block email traffic,... More claiming it's SPAM. Apparently, they have some SPAMMERS on their servers and some IP blocks are blacklisted. I have been forced to get a Gmail account so I can send outbound emails, which is a major pain. I've raised this issue with tech support too many times to count but the problem persists. I'd love to stay with them but I have to move on. Less

unreliable and deceitful Company

Betahost should not be trusted with their words... They treat you friendly in beginning, then you get unimaginable attitude later. They can coldly boycott your services without even informing you. They don't just care. Forget... More it, don't be tricked. Firsthand/gained experience. Less
