Love them
Jeanne Wilmot,

The 24/7 live chat has saved me many times and is always very helpful. I wish the domain hosting were included in the reseller so I could set up the domains for clients more easily. Would be nice to be able to invoice client... More s directly from the reseller account or at least have multiple credit cards for payments from clients. The free SSL is great considering how much others charge. But it is a nuisance to constantly have to regenerate the certifications. This is the 4th hosting provider I have used in 5 years. So far have stayed the longest with them. After the big name ones, this customer service is a dream come true. Less
Semi Dedicated on Sweden Network Fine for me
Daniel Darn,

Hostplay is a good offshore web host, and I've recommended them to several people who now also use them and are impressed with their uptime and website speeds. I'm using Semi Dedicated Hosting Service with them and pretty sat... More isfied. What you can be sure of is that you will be given the right service for the money you pay.
Thanks

Fraudulent Billing and Renewal Billing Practices
Jonathan Howard,

This company (which provides very average and normal service) engages in dishonest and deceptive billing tactics. Two years in a row I was billed incorrectly. This year - I cancelled - using their very complicated method an... More d they still charged me. I am disputing and filing complaints with the State.
Everyone should know they are a terrible company with terrible customer service. I recommend staying away.

Be careful with this hosting

Be careful with this hosting. They are scammers. I paid 3 months in advance and they stole my money. Warez-Host and HostPlay are the same group of scammers.
