Great Support and Price
Grant Oakes,
9.2
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

Worst Service ever
Shafik Rahim,

Had raised a ticket with them for a simple change which is to change the IP Address of a DNS server. As of now 4 tickets has been raised because after a few days the ticket get closed and when called back they respond that t... More he old ticket cannot be reopen and so to raise a new ticket. As on date. it 8 Months and almost 14 hours on call with the technicians since the tickets has been raised but no resolutions has been made yet.
And the worst part is that they never respond to your mails.

Terrible hosting
STEPHANIE GILLUM,

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
