I've been through many south african web hosts, but find that Hostking is awesome. I had one major hiccup with my website where I broke it by installing a caching plugin into my wordpress and they were willing to help. I like... More that they are 24/7 as I can also count on someone to be around when needed using their live chat. I also have no issues with the speed of my website. It runs nice and fast. Keep up the good work guys Less
Very happy to using their plans

I have a well-settled online business of crockeries. For that business I have a shared hosting plan with Chemicloud. Until then I haven’t got any issue with their service. Currently, I am launching my new website home decore ... More for that I got Domainracer ‘s shared hosting.

First, I was scared but now I am very satisfied with their initial startup support and all.

Within 4 weeks HostKings service level slipped so far down to disconnect a paid account without notice, disrupting file and data transfer badly. Asking myself, is this a new revenge policy for leaving? I noticed recently a si... More gnificant drop in service quality and decided to change to another host. Your behavior is now childish and changed from bad service to disgusting. Less
Bad attitude when they know I m migrating server due to technical issues

I used it for 2 years and as a Senior Developer, I would not recommend this to anyone. They miss interpreted the word grace period once they came to know I m not going to continue first they asked to pay for the grace period ... More and then suspended the account 10 hours before ending the grace period and insisted to buy for one more month to recover the data if required.
I have used many hosting services including aws, godaddy, BlueHost, hostgator, Contabo, OVS, etc for different clients in my entire professional career but chemcloud is very opportunist.
also, their technical staff is so much incompetent that often they refuse to install some packages or install them in a way that is not useful and generates issues.
Personally, I would not recommend it to any of my clients.
