Nice Hosting

I host a blog site http://digitalbhat.com with GoDaddy and found it satisfactory. I recommend this host to all on merit basis and overall experience I had with the service provider.
Hosting Perfection
Larry Verkeyn,

I started out as an .asp developer in 1998 with sites on a hosting provider who is now out of business. I was building my own backend administration areas for clients to be able to update their sites themselves. Then Wordpres... More s grew up, and I switched to building sites with wordpress.
I have been with HostNexus for over 12 years, and currently host 13 client sites within my account. I have other client sites who came to me after purchasing other hosting at various other hosting companies. Some of these other hosts we have all heard of, some obscure. All of my headaches in my work come from the sites hosted at other companies.
In my 12 years with HostNexus my sites were down twice. Twice in 12 years... and for less than a few hours. The other hosts have issues with downtime at least once a year. When I have had issues that need support help,HN are quick to respond, and 99% of the time the problem stems from something I was doing incorrectly. The support team is unmatched in both efficiency and respect to the customer.
I'm a little worried if HostNexus gets too many of their current customers to speak out about the awesome service we receive, they will turn into one of those other large hosting companies who can't handle the amount of customers they have.... so please, don't tell everyone... just your good friends.

Worst hosting company ever

We are trying to fix a Webhosting issue that we have for more than 2 months. Nobody calls back, none is able to give technical advice. Call-center only. This has nothing to do with a great customer experience!
