The worst provider I have ever dealt with. Tech support is terrible.

A customer of mine recently purchased web hosting services from Hostway, and it’s been a nightmare since the moment the purchase was made. The salesman repeatedly assured us that we would have Cpanel access, and it’s not even... More available. They assured we could install a shared SSL through them…..it turns out you can, so long as you email it to them every year and get them to install it. I don’t trust their ability to install it based on what I’ve seen so far though.
From the very moment we purchased an upgraded plan, we hadn’t even logged onto the site yet, they took down our original website and hosed our email settings. In the middle of the business day.
For several days I was unable to upload my index.html file, I had to send it to them and ask them to do it. The other files upload fine, just not the index file. At first they attempted to blame FileZilla for the problem, then finally got a workaround where I upload the file into my images folder, contact them, and they move it into the root directory. Not satisfactory, at all. I still am unable to edit my own htaccess file, and it doesn’t look like they care much about fixing that either.
This started last Friday, and today is Tuesday. I have spent literally hours on the phone and in chat with them trying to get this ironed out, and as of 5pm Tuesday it still is not fixed. It takes as long to explain the issue as it does for them to look through their documentation for an answer, because they are not even minimally competent with the technical workings of a server.
Maybe they do okay with Wordpress, I don’t know, but unless that’s your thing steer way way clear of this company.

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
