We've been hosting in Gigenet's Chicago location continually since 2008. We've tried other hosting providers, but none are better than Gigenet. We've upgraded servers several times and each time the cost is lower. Uptime is 1... More 00% except for planned network upgrades, which they notify of way in advance. Their network speeds are always fast and the dedicated servers are very reliable. They have fast 24/7 response to support tickets and a toll free number to call them in the event of an emergency (we've had a few, not their fault). We've also used their cloud services for a couple projects. Less

Lots of restrictions. Payment method fraudulent. Charge when automatic payment is disabled. Very slow support.

I asked to have an upgrade of Python so that I could installed Django and it was denied. Their shared server has Python 2.7, and Python 3 was denied to be installed, which has been the standard version for many years (you are... More give a jail shell that restricts most installation). Their basic plan is way too restrictive. You have to get a non-shared server to get any serious work done there and pay lots of money. There is also no way to stop a payment once the invoice is done six weeks in advance. Turning off automatic payment does nothing once the invoice is done and there is no way to remove a credit card once added to do payments. Less
