Beyond The Extra Mile - A Service Orientated Company Of Note!
CECILE BEKKER,

The Gridhost guys are always helpful beyond the scope of their duties - always friendly - always give more assistance than expected! Call Backs - Follow Ups and even the "not really part of their job" advice! - Just the BEST - forget the REST!
Great Support and Price

I've used Hostwinds for nearly 2 years and they have been excellent during my stay. However, I am looking at leaving because they have IP issues, mainly, some of the major (Gmail, Outlook, MSN, etc) ISP's block email traffic,... More claiming it's SPAM. Apparently, they have some SPAMMERS on their servers and some IP blocks are blacklisted. I have been forced to get a Gmail account so I can send outbound emails, which is a major pain. I've raised this issue with tech support too many times to count but the problem persists. I'd love to stay with them but I have to move on. Less

Horrendous service and slow servers
Colin Durrant,

TSO Host used to be really good. Then they got bought out by Godaddy and that was it. They went down the toilet. Support is horrendous, servers are very slow and over loaded. No doubt Godaddy bought them out and then stripped... More back their support and increased the number of sites per server to order to increase profit at the cost of providing a decent service. Had to migrate all our sites away to a better provider. Less
