Ancient control interface. Poor tech support.
Questionable service and support
Robert Liroff,

Service is friendly, but overall site support is definitely mixed - not sure if the long-term price is worth it.
I am concerned that I was not alert to a feature offering me SSL layer protection for my site, the absence of wh... More ich may have steered away potential clients. I only found out today, upon calling for a break in my site's functioning today, and inquiring about such protection, that it had been offered in my plan for a while but never turned on!
A real problem in communication with your customers. It was only due to the extremely helpful support person whom I contacted today that I satisfactorily resolved the two issues troubling my site.
