Nice Hosting
Muzaffer Bhat,

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.
The best hosting for businesses in the UK

They have the best hardware in the UK. From the moment you sign up you will love how fast and reliable your hosting is. I've never had an issue with them.

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!
Dreadful, Dreadful, Dreadful support!

I've had servers with Rapidswitch for over 8 years and have watched as their service and support has slowly degraded. It used to be a good company but their response times and support quality has steadily got worse and worse.... More They show no concern if hardware has faults and nobody takes ownership of problems or attempts to fix their servers rapidly. Unfortunately I was left with very little confidence in their ability to actually run a hosting facility. We have switched to AWS which is actually working out cheaper with a much more resilient infrastructure. Less
