The worst provider I have ever dealt with. Tech support is terrible.

A customer of mine recently purchased web hosting services from Hostway, and it’s been a nightmare since the moment the purchase was made. The salesman repeatedly assured us that we would have Cpanel access, and it’s not even... More available. They assured we could install a shared SSL through them…..it turns out you can, so long as you email it to them every year and get them to install it. I don’t trust their ability to install it based on what I’ve seen so far though.
From the very moment we purchased an upgraded plan, we hadn’t even logged onto the site yet, they took down our original website and hosed our email settings. In the middle of the business day.
For several days I was unable to upload my index.html file, I had to send it to them and ask them to do it. The other files upload fine, just not the index file. At first they attempted to blame FileZilla for the problem, then finally got a workaround where I upload the file into my images folder, contact them, and they move it into the root directory. Not satisfactory, at all. I still am unable to edit my own htaccess file, and it doesn’t look like they care much about fixing that either.
This started last Friday, and today is Tuesday. I have spent literally hours on the phone and in chat with them trying to get this ironed out, and as of 5pm Tuesday it still is not fixed. It takes as long to explain the issue as it does for them to look through their documentation for an answer, because they are not even minimally competent with the technical workings of a server.
Maybe they do okay with Wordpress, I don’t know, but unless that’s your thing steer way way clear of this company.

- they are evil and money eaters, they suspended all my work for a dumb reason that says you take a lot of resources and destroy our reputation All my clients.
- they forced their clients to buy SSL certificates although, th... More ey should be free and it is for all web hosting companies. Can you Imagine that !!!
- I will transfer all my work and run away from this unrespectable company then I will not hastate to sell my clothes just to let people know about How this company is bad and contain lots of evil inside its work strategy .... starting from the dead waiting time the user has to wait to get a response and ending by the evil strategy it uses to force the user to purchase things its already must give it for free to the users.
- Don't run your work with this company ever
