Best Hosting Ever in Decade
Nara Indra,
10
I already at hawkhost since 2011, so a decade host has no big complaint to them. I already try from share hosting to semi-dedicated server and all of them are great. Usually I will hunt their promo at black friday/cyber monda... More y. With just $22 you got a year share host and quite good for all of my sites. I only send ticket no more than 30 in a decade because their cpanel show how much resources that I use and I try to maintain it. But if your website need DMCA ignore, please don't use them because once you got too many complaint then you must move to other host or you will be suspend. Less

We have been with Site5 for 7years. And we started to move project by project to an other hoster.
The following start happening with our projects:
- Login stopped working
- You could not even reset the password (email not re... More ceived)
I had the most frustrating time with the support.

Worst Customer Service... Just trying to change my account email.. 2 yrs and 5 requests.. still not changed
R Clements,

Been asking since 2018 to have my old gmail address removed and use my icloud one...
its 2020 and you cant change it yourself... you have to request it with a service ticket...
Everytime.. they keep asking for something diffe... More rent and the ticket gets closed...
Latest is to respond to email chain and put my PIN in the email???
Nice security practice....
If it comes down to HawkHost vs competitor.. ... I would say strongly consider the competitor
