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

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

Beware of this company dont believe any fake reviews
I purchased managed vps hosting from this hosting company and after receiving my payment they refused to activate my account they said until I send them a picture of the cr... More edit card, i did that and since then I've been laying complaints they have not even replied to one.
I think this company is a fraud I mean what will they do with my credit card details and even after submitting all of that i raised several support tickets and they refused to even reply me.
Please stay away from them.
