Im satisfied with offshore managed hosting services at HostPlay
Selen Wagner,
10
Well, it happened so that I signed up with Hostplay about several years ago, because I had a long nightmare period with another host and while dealing with this offshore semi-dedicated hosting, I immediately got to know that ... More I had made the right choice.
Excellent uptime, very responsive support and most importantly - great speed.

Great Support and Price

I've used Hostwinds for nearly 2 years and they have been excellent during my stay. However, I am looking at leaving because they have IP issues, mainly, some of the major (Gmail, Outlook, MSN, etc) ISP's block email traffic,... More claiming it's SPAM. Apparently, they have some SPAMMERS on their servers and some IP blocks are blacklisted. I have been forced to get a Gmail account so I can send outbound emails, which is a major pain. I've raised this issue with tech support too many times to count but the problem persists. I'd love to stay with them but I have to move on. Less

Be careful with this hosting

Be careful with this hosting. They are scammers. I paid 3 months in advance and they stole my money. Warez-Host and HostPlay are the same group of scammers.
2 day after They don't refund my money. All web page go home link.
