Im satisfied with offshore managed hosting services at HostPlay
Selen Wagner,

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.

Lots of restrictions. Payment method fraudulent. Charge when automatic payment is disabled. Very slow support.

I asked to have an upgrade of Python so that I could installed Django and it was denied. Their shared server has Python 2.7, and Python 3 was denied to be installed, which has been the standard version for many years (you are... More give a jail shell that restricts most installation). Their basic plan is way too restrictive. You have to get a non-shared server to get any serious work done there and pay lots of money. There is also no way to stop a payment once the invoice is done six weeks in advance. Turning off automatic payment does nothing once the invoice is done and there is no way to remove a credit card once added to do payments. 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.
