Love them
Jeanne Wilmot,
9.2
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

Fraudulent Billing and Renewal Billing Practices
Jonathan Howard,
2.0
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.
