The advanced iframe pro is good to embed a frame in the template page.

Hosting quality is too good for the price, the support team is friendly and efficient.

I have failed to set up DNS for email and suspect my hosting is infected with malicious code. The host's support team guided me to solve the problem quickly and efficiently. I think host armada offers high-quality service and... More very reasonable prices. I will stick with this service for a long time. Less

Wordpress.com are irresponsible scoundrels. They forgot to tell us that if we move our site to them without first moving our email, we would be without email for the entire 5-7 days of the transfer. What are they doing about ... More it? "Oh, we really should tell people that and put it in our literature. We will give you a free month, and the supervisor will call you to see if he can speed up the transfer" No one contacted me. Unbelievably irresponsible and unprofessional. Less
They're extremely deceptive in their pricing

The whole "regular price" thing means that's how much they'll charge you once you renew. It doesn't say it explicitly, which is really shady. I wouldn't trust them at all passed that point.
