Good prices, nice service, fast speed

As a new small business start-up it's important to me to start fast, conserve cash and yet market as efficiently as I can. Glowhost offered the most value for the services I was seeking. I am very glad I chose them as my web hosting service provider.
Reliable. Period.

I decided to leave a review for this company as I realised I've been their client for over a year, without a single incident. Currently I host only one domain with them, but I have several hosted elsewhere, including our own ... More dedicated servers and VPS, so I can tell when something is (or isn't) ideal as far as web hosting goes.
My website has never had any downtime, slowdown or miscellaneous problems with email or whatnot (bear in mind this is shared hosting). I just opened a ticket for the first time with them, for a billing issue (not their fault, just something I needed a clarification for), and found out they also have a very client-oriented service.
I really have nothing else to add, everything "just works" as it should.

Not for me

I chose Glowhost because they offered Shoutcast and web hosting in one package. Directly after ordering, I noted that my entire control panel was in Chinese. I then had to work with support for hours before my site could be p... More ublished, and was asked to scan and send copies of government issued identification. My Shoutcast server went down on the second day, requiring me to contact support a second time. My streaming specifications were also not as advertised, which I had to contact support to resolve. When it came to building my website, I would have liked to have seen more tools to create a professional looking site. Ultimately, I decided to find a more trustworthy host that could provide better tools to actually build my website. When I tried to invoke Glowhost's Money Back Satisfaction Guarantee, I was told that I'd be charged for my domain name that was originally offered for free, and that the charge would come out of my hosting refund. I was sent links to terms and conditions that differed from what I'd already read. After mentioning my intentions of sharing my experiences, I was then told that they could offer me the full refund as an "exception." I replied that I had no intention of withholding details of my experience, and the offer was revoked. In short, Glowhost was not for me. I felt misled by the Satisfaction Guarantee and was dissatisfied in the amount of issues that arose within my first week alone. For anyone looking for web hosting services, Glowhost has timely technical support but was far from pain free for me and abides by the same fine print any cheaper, more popular, professional, and easier to use host does as well.

I do not recommend dealing with them

I subscribed with them for 6 months during the first month of service and encountered many problems that I cannot count every minute. I go to the support to take an apology from them and hours to solve the problem in the serv... More ers they have. They are fraudsters. I asked for a backup copy of my sites. Absolutely
