Great Support and Price
Grant Oakes,
9.2
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

No Support & Never Gave Refund for my 11mths I paid in Advance
Jay Wesley,

It took 3wks for them to answer my first email, then they suspended my service even though I paid 12mths in advance as my domain: phorum.ws was classified as 'malicious' by google, and was such when I started hosting with the... More m. It had no been hosted for 2yrs so was in the middle of working with Google in getting it removed from this malicious list as it was there by accident, as they only thing it was ever hosted as was a phpBB forum - no malicious whatsoever. So I told the Admin I would change the domain to a different one (newly registered similar to phorum.ws) but they did not reply to email and waited the timeframe I could not complain to google for refund and deleted my account altogether!!
THE WORST SUPPORT, NO EXISTENT! And Frankly have ZERO interest in working with their customers to fix problems....
In my 19yrs online, this is the worst host by far! Stay Away please!
