Excellent hosting company (This is how hosting should be provided for customers)
Dan Clarke,

Fantastic company, And the prices are too cheap to be fair. I have not been with lcn long but already have 5 domain names with them and i am currently moving everything from goDaddy to LCN. I would recommend this company to a... More nyone (Though i am UK based and can only vouch for their UK support and level of expertise but i would be confident to say this is the same around the globe). Less
Great Support and Price

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

They're scammers.

They're scammers. They'll never register your domains and will never refund you. I ordered some domains with them but not reflected in my account
Terrible hosting

Terrible hosting. Even one Wordpress site does not work on the "Ultimate Business" tariff plan!!! The support service does not solve the problem! When I don't use the site, the RAM is not used. As soon as I work with the site... More , I do elementary things: creating a new Wordpress page, adding a product, then the RAM is working at maximum and the site gives a 503 error. This can't be on a simple Wordpress site. Your hosting works disgusting! Less
