Your sites will be in good hands, dudes. Personally, I'm a fully satisfied Hostwinds customer. They are rock. High 99% uptime and very fast servers. I developed my Wordpress Website with optimum speed using the available soft... More aculous addon in the Cpanel. Well done! Less

GVO went over the Cliff
Tony Denson,
4.4
The site I had on GVO finally came back up this Wednesday morning after being down since last Friday. I thought I was using a decent company until this chaos came up. I had only 12 local business clients and my personal servi... More ce to them has been exemplary enough that they are staying with me. But he down time made me go and look at the overall GVO picture. And I agree:
>> webinar service has steadily gone downhilll never stable enough for me to use.
>> too many upsells and too much spam
>> overuse of templates made for poor ranking
Goodbye GVO I learned a lot some good some bad

Nickle and Diming
Brian W,

I signed up for $10.99 per month because of the good reviews. My first month was discounted 25%. Then I notice that they are charging me $3 extra per month just to have backups. That is just plain nickle and diming. BACKUP SHOULD BE INCLUDED!
