I've been useing HostingSpecialist for about 3 months now , and everything is great. For such a price , I expected less. Yet everything is easy to use , and the support is just awesome, they always answer as soon as possible ... More and actualy fulfill requests. I had some issues where I needed to enable few stuff in php.ini , they did it instantly ! Just awesome. 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
