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

When the service works everything is ok ! If a problem occurs, forget about support, service can be down for 5-6 hours, support will not be answered. They pretend to be dead :) They will only contact you quickly when it come... More s to payments, they are very up to date ! I do not recommend service to anyone for serious work! They are playing hosting but they are not serious hosting! Less
