Solid and reliable host.

Excellent website, has tons of features, good prices. Support is fast and actually gets things solved. They are really good enough to sign up with. So far I'm very pleased with this company. I have never encountered any probl... More ems and customer support has always been very helpful whenever I contact them. Services are affordable and decent. Less
Great Hosting for a Beginner like me!

As a newbie who knows nothing about hosting, I recently discovered this web hosting on YouTube with a great review, and the reason I'm willing to take a chance is that they share their experience that the customer service is ... More excellent! I know I need help constructing and to troubleshoot a website, so I jump at the chance! Host Armada has a loyal customer base and is well worth your money, in just a second they will reply to you! Less

Broken English; False Anycast DNS; 14 Day Refund; Minimum 6 Month Billing Period
Brad Darb,

If you don't read French, you will struggle with PlanetHoster documentation; English documentation is fragmented at best. They claim an anycast DNS network, but the reality it is located only in Europe and Montreal; DNS time... More s lag in western North America and anywhere else outside of Europe. Two unicast DNS would server the purpose equally well. After having enough of the whole affair after three weeks I founld out that they only offer a two week refund period, so I am committed to their 6 month minimum billing period. Less
