Semi Dedicated on Sweden Network Fine for me
Daniel Darn,

Hostplay is a good offshore web host, and I've recommended them to several people who now also use them and are impressed with their uptime and website speeds. I'm using Semi Dedicated Hosting Service with them and pretty sat... More isfied. What you can be sure of is that you will be given the right service for the money you pay.
Thanks

Your sites will be in good hands, dudes. Personally, I'm a fully satisfied Hostwinds customer. They are rock. High 99% uptime and very fast servers. I developed my Wordpress Website with optimum speed using the available soft... More aculous addon in the Cpanel. Well done! Less

Be careful with this hosting
Luis Molina,

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.
Nickle and Diming
Brian W,

I signed up for $10.99 per month because of the good reviews. My first month was discounted 25%. Then I notice that they are charging me $3 extra per month just to have backups. That is just plain nickle and diming. BACKUP SHOULD BE INCLUDED!
