Good Solid Webhosting
Frank Kruemmel,

We use Hostmonster for our webhosting. Our company does optimization, content writing etc. Hostmonster is a great company from a web professional's opinion. I am more technical and Hostmonster has not passed the buck on me yet.
Reliable Hosting Company

I switched to InterServer VPS web hosting the last 4 weeks ago. I got this hosting service at a very low price. I am really very happy because it doesn’t charge any cost on SSL certificates & daily backups. I also purchased W... More ordPress hosting from Domain Racer which provides me with automatic WordPress updates & many best services. Less

After ten years, they lost me as a customer forever

It is pretty uncommon that I give bad reviews online, but I'm making an exception here.
I've recommended Hostmonster / Bluehost in the past as a viable option for people looking for cheap shared hosting. I regret it. This com... More pany's policies are terrible and absolutely put the bottom line in front of customer happiness. I have a defunct account on Hostmonster. There are no domains currently pointing to it. I thought the my billing information had been removed when I sold my company but my old business credit card was still on file. Hostmonster ran my card for one year of hosting at $443. I called today to try to get at least *some* of that money refunded since I will not be using their service at all and they are charging me for an entire year. But since it is five days after the start of the new year for the account (and only two business days after my credit card statement) according to company policy I am out an entire year of hosting costs. They can't even issue a partial refund for the 12 unused months.
I asked if there was anyone else I could talk to. I asked to talk to their customer retention department. I explained that I don't use this credit card anymore and didn't even get the statement until after the 16th. But they are insisting that it is company policy and there's nothing they can do. So, I unequivocally do NOT recommend their services. I went from a happy customer of almost a decade to a furious former customer over the course of an hour.
This is absolutely not how you run a business.
