I have been using Hostforlife for more than 5 years. Their services have always been reliable, with simple interface yet full featured functionality, and easy to deploy/install. They were recommended to me by trusted develope... More r I've known for years. I would recommend this provider if you want to host .NET website. They have several datacenters in Europe that you can choose. Less

Login page says "This site is restricted" I have tried to resolve the issue with 6 different support agents, spent more than 2 hours each time, and none of them has been able to help me out. Those guys are completely useless.... More Do yourself a favor and keep your stuff away from this host! Less
You will pay extra money for basic web server functionality
Dmytro S,

I had a very bad experience with this hosting. There was no trial period, so I had to pay 20 EUR for first 3 month. Fine, not a big deal. So I paid and wait few hours for email with hosting details. Then I started to setup my... More website on their hosting, and by the some reason PUT and DELETE HTTP methods didn't worked. I spent few hours to understand what I'm doing wrong. Then I wrote to support team, and it turns out that PUT and DELETE methods are disabled on web server! And I have to pay extra 15 EUR for setup this functionality on web server by support team! And there is no human readable text on their web site about this "extra" feature. So after such bad customer experience I found other hosting and decided to get my 20 EUR back. After my request to return my money, support team said that they can enable HTTP methods for free. So they just tried to scam 15 EUR, and when I refuse to pay and asked about withdraw my 20 EUR they agree to enable HTTP methods. Very bad customer experience. So I continued ask for withdraw my 20 EUR. On their web site I can see text like "30 Days Money Back Guarantee". And it turns out, that in their terms of use (which usually nobody read) said that there is non refundable 15 EUR for their "setup". So I managed to return only 5 EUR. If you don't want to pay extra money for basic web server functionality, I'm strongly don't recommend this hosting. Less
