I've worked with this company for ten years, and I utilize their managed WordPress products in addition to their virtual servers. Never experienced downtime or problems besides those of my own making. They provide the best cu... More stomer service around. The price point is lower in my opinion and really competitive. Outstanding value for the money. Less

I asked to move to a cheaper plan and they kindly assisted to clone my site. I asked that they will delete the old me.
After several months I discovered that they ignored my request to delete the data from the old server and ... More that they overcharged me for several months!
I told them to return my money but they offered only a 50% refund!
STAY AWAY FROM THEM
