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
Their customer support service is the best Enough said

The entire support team is friendly and always willing to help. They respond quickly and they also provide detailed explanations. There is no better customer support team around. GREAT JOB GUYS

Got ambushed with Christmas Day renewal
Daniel Spratt,
4.4
Had been hosting 2 domains with them for 3 years. Auto renewed my plan for 4x original price on CHRISTMAS DAY. No phone call prior, just and email that got buried in spam 14 days before. Customer retention and service refuses... More to work with me. Would not give them another dime. All future business will be taken elsewhere. Avoid. Less
Dreadful support - site down for 3 days
Tony Featherstone,
2.8
Worst mistake of my life was signing up with these guys. One of my accounts was hacked and their abuse team sent me an email alerting me to the files that were malicious. I deleted all of them except one (which I missed by mi... More stake). Because of this, on a Friday night, they shut my site down - took it off line. Then they give me the spin that their 'abuse team' is different from their "support team" and they only work 9-5 monday to friday - no after hours support. So my site is now offline until Monday at the earliest. Dreadful service, in no way fit for a professional business to rely on. Please learn from my mistake, avoid these guys at all costs. Less
