I've been with Chemicloud for nearly three years and have always been pleased with their service during this time. To anybody who'll listen, I've always said that Chemicloud is the best host I've used in the last 20 years. Th... More e reason I say this is mostly because of their customer support. I've broken several sites on this host and they invariably have them repaired and working again within an hour. A far cry from many hosts I've used in the past. Superb support. Less

Not Happy: Fat Cow Did Not Leave me
Rodney Sidloski,

After paying my $3,500 or so for Fat Cow to set up the site the site is up and running but with spelling and gramatical errors throughout plus one or two big glitches that Fat Cow promises to fix within 24 hours each time I t... More alk to them over the past number of month but they never follow through ...never fix the problem. So their PR people or PR firm they outsource are very polite and cordial and make promises for immediate action but there is a complete disconnect with their technical side. Its like their PR people have no authority to actually order services to your site. So a complete waste of time talking to them....they do nothing. With a non functioning site it is now having big financial implications on my company.
The glitch problem...at the bottom of the main page no matter what theme heading/page you click on ie: Become a Licencee, or International Research Corps or Become an Investor or Host a Launch .....when you click on any of these the site goes always to 'Become an Investor' page only. So the site is non usable in its current form. In addition, the spelling and gramatical errors throughout the site make the site appear unprofessional.

I was honestly planning to sign up for Established Reseller Plan until i stumbled upon the pricing page. I must say that support was good and even waited for 15 mins since i had an urgent phone call to attend.
Anyways, long ... More story short and here is the break down of events.
- So when I moved to buy now page, i was a bit shocked looking at the pricing (screenshot attached)
-- What they advertised is $17.49 per month so according to this it should be $209.88 for 12 months but they are asking for 9.40
- When i asked the support staff, he told me that this is what it is and you can pay monthly and remain on $17.49
-- Then when i asked him that this would not be true because your terms on pricing say something different (Link to screenshot https://ibb.co/HGP9jg5)
-- Response was sorry that we are unable to meet in the middle way and the chat closed
Seriously they should be ranked the lowest when it comes to reseller hosting and what a disappointment.
