I've been a customer for over 15 years. So terrific to be able to call up and have an expert who know what they're talking about answer the phone, and immediately solve my technical problems.

The platform is great. However, there is an issue with my cdn and my website and after 48 hours it still has not been resolved. I am aware that I have a standard support package but this should be part of the package as it is... More from their end. One other issue which I was not aware when I decided to go with them is that they are using a late version of PHP. Not great for speed. You have to be on the next suppôt level, to be upgraded at a cost of £100 support for at least 6 months. Not happy right now. Less
