Very good hosting
John G. Rearden,
9.2
I was looking for the best hosting company in China, and I think I found it. English is my first language, so I was glad to see that their site could be easily translated into English. They even did a good job with the tran... More slation. The one problem I have with this site is that they don't list their prices right away. This is why they got only three stars in that section. The actual prices are fair, but I wanted to be able to see them more easily.
Now that I'm signed up and working with them for about 6 months, I have no complaints. They work well all the time and keep my site running smoothly without interruption.

A few issues
Francoise Bencke,
8.0
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

Looks like their website doesn't properly function. I couldn't check domain names, trying several times with different browsers. I definitely dont wont my website to be kept on their servers.
On submission of this form :which... More service did you use with hichina" you cant even choose anything else except "I dont know". I think it is not correct at all. Less
