Happy since 2012

I like how easy WebFaction is to use as a developer. They make it easy to set up databases users and email addresses through their web interface without throwing too many options in your face at once, and it's also easy to co... More ntrol stuff through the command line if you're comfortable with that. Lots of good integrations too. Less

Terrible Support and Service
James Marks,

Absolutely terrible. I have been using Webfaction since 2009. It has slowly gotten worse over time-
I got an alert that there was an issue with my account - I looked into it and it was something well beyond anything I unders... More tood and it wasn't even related to any of my web apps, so it really seems to be an issue on their end.
When I asked for help, they told me to hire a web developer to fix it.... It wasn't an issue that was even close to touching one of my websites.
I have office 365 for one of my clients passing through the email and I'm not quite sure how to set that up myself- but as soon as I can figure out how to migrate it to a new host- I am done with webfaction. I can go somewhere else for half of what I pay for webfaction anyway-
Stay Away from webfaction or who they just sold out to.

- 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
