$3/m Hosting With Free Domain SSL Life Time

Hi,
I have been using Filetruth hosting for my WordPress / whmcs Site for the past two months. Earlier I was using NameCheap hosting and now I feel glad that I switched. Currently, I’m using the Basic Shared Hosting plan with... More received free domain name , ssl certificate.
Filetruth hosting shared hosting is not only fast but reliable with good customer support. I am also using the Cloudflare CDN which Filetruth hosting and it has really improved the site’s loading speed.So far, my site has been down only for once and that was just a some days after I switched to Filetruth hosting. However, their customer support was fast in responding to my issue and they got it resolved within half an hour.
Since then, I haven’t faced any issues with my site. Another good thing about Filetruth hosting is their Control Panel. It is easy to use and user-friendly.
Filetruth hosting control panel also provides additional services like SEO based services and CloudFlare integration. I’ll definitely upgrade to better plans at Filetruth hosting once my website begins to generate more traffic. For small site owners and bloggers, I’ll definitely recommend Filetruth hosting for their excellent services.

I've used Hostwinds for nearly 2 years and they have been excellent during my stay. However, I am looking at leaving because they have IP issues, mainly, some of the major (Gmail, Outlook, MSN, etc) ISP's block email traffic,... More claiming it's SPAM. Apparently, they have some SPAMMERS on their servers and some IP blocks are blacklisted. I have been forced to get a Gmail account so I can send outbound emails, which is a major pain. I've raised this issue with tech support too many times to count but the problem persists. I'd love to stay with them but I have to move on. Less
