I am fully satisfied

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

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!
they just canceled my hosting with this message !

Hello James,
Unfortunately, we will no longer be providing you with a hosting service in the new year.
Also note i started paying £2.99 a month and it went up to £10 a month. I advise staying away from this company
Plea... More se accept this as notice we will end your hosting subscription in 7 days (30th December 2019).
We will ensure that you are refunded in full any remaining time on your hosting service and our support team will provide backups of your data if you require them, to ease your transition to another hosting provider.
Please accept my most sincere apologies for any inconvenience this might cause. We wish you the very best for the future.
Kind Regards
Dave Kimberley
Company COO
