Good Solid Webhosting
Frank Kruemmel,

We use Hostmonster for our webhosting. Our company does optimization, content writing etc. Hostmonster is a great company from a web professional's opinion. I am more technical and Hostmonster has not passed the buck on me yet.
Best support ever

Chemicloud has the arguably best client support. The live chat is always working, response time is almost instant and their support stuff solved all of my issues in no time in the past several years. I wouldn't change them for anything :)!!

Stayed too long

When I started my business, Hostmonster was great. No problems whatsoever. Support, uptime, cost...everything was just fine. Price hikes began to happen every year. Support fell off tremendously and so many malware attack... More s basically shut my site down. I had to leave. I was with them, by that time, for about 12 years. They made no effort to understand why or change my mind. I think they know why people leave. A2Hosting is home now. 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.
