Good service!
Taylor Rogers,

I requested consultation, they attempted to call me several times but I never answered(totally my fault) but they definitely did try to reach me. Time differences just always had the calls coming in in the middle of the night... More for me. I figured out what I had needed. Thank you Less

I've been with Interserver.net for 5 years and am VERY glad I found this Hosting Provider. Their prices are low, their up time is HIGH and Tech Support always answer my questions promptly. Other hosting providers charge for ... More basic SSL security. However at Interserver.net they include it for FREE with their hosting packages. That was BIG savings for my multiple websites. I'm a VERY Happy client at Interserver.net.. I recommended them to friends and family. Less

The worst hosting service ever, don't use it!

My website has been down for over a week to date, I contacted the customer support 10+ times, they always argue that the matter has been escalated to a higher support team that will respond in further 24-72 hours. Also, back-... More up data are apparently stored in the same servers as the production data, which is the most incompetent move ever. I have never seen such a poor service. Less
look for another provider

Winner: InterServer

Bruno Mirchevski Hosting Expert

InterServer and BlueHost are both good quality hosting providers that operate in North America. They both have a good reputation, great services. In a head-to-head matchup like this, however, InterServer emerges as the clear winner since they have truly unlimited hosting, and are ranked better by actual users of the service. In addition, their prices are lower for almost every hosting package around. For these reasons, and others, we declared InterServer the winner in this matchup.
