Great hosting server
Paula Carvalho,

I have a website on Downtown Host since 2009. Since that time my site was down only 6 times for a small time each. Even when they migrated to a better server it was ultra fast and they sent me a message before so I could info... More rm my visitors when and why my site would be offline. I have a large traffic and on my previous server my site was offline like 3 / 4 times per year.
They have lots of plans, good price and always were very helpful when I needed them. Support is effective and extremely fast in answer.
If I had another website, I would for sure sign up with them again.

Not what it used to be

Tickets remain open, there is no longer a chat. My SSL certificate expired recently and there is no way on the site to correct it. If you go to certificates the "buy" is dead, and no prices are listed. Basically the site is a... More bit of a ghost site. A lot of dead error pages. Was on Downtown host since 2013. Support WAS 5 stars when I stared, with Jorge always at the helm. I just moved my forum to another host. Downtown host is a ghost of what it was. Less
Avoid Fast Comet please.

They are constantly deceitful. Claim you can send 50mb attachments but forget to tell you they encrypt all mail and a 30mb attachments fails. Say they give you 1000mb mail space but dont tell you encrytion uses that space so ... More you only get like 650mb of space per email account. Cloudflare is constantly looping preventing you from logving in. Live chat support tries to put blame on your end and rarely solves problems, just blames then on your software or machine ( "works on my end"). Use anybody else. Less
