Great Support and Price
Grant Oakes,

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
Great Technical Support!

Kinsta has provided me with a reliable and FAST hosting platform over the past year. Very infrequently a problem does crop up (usually WordPress related!) and when it does Kinsta provides excellent technical support in a tim... More ely manner. The technicians are patient and informative, and make every effort to solve the problem at hand. I would recommend Kinsta if you are looking for a managed WordPress hosting service. Less
