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

Thankful I did not start a business with CWH as my host.

As another reviewer had mentioned, I too had excellent service for many years then one day it was all over. I had been hosting small sites for friends and family and I loved the interface from CWH and the one click installs. ... More The bandwidth available to me from the Okanagan was the best of all hosting providers I had tested with the least number of hops.
Then one day a friend informed me he was not receiving emails properly. I tried to login to my CWH account and found I could not, I submitted a ticket and from that point forward I felt like I was chatting with an online scam of some sort as they were "hmmm don't see any issues on our end" then I would reply indicating I had had hosting service with them for years, "ah yes it appears we had a hardware failure and we are attempting to resolve the issue". No problem, right? I mean, stuff happens, let’s work together to rectify the issue because that is what customers expect from a reputable company. They could not recover ANY of the data (half dozen sites some with multiple SQL databases and thousands of emails).
I gave CWH 1 star on each of the options below even though a couple of the items I would list at 4-5 star but the average score was waaaaay too high for this company considering there is absolutely nothing more important when it comes to web hosting than reliability.
