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

Avoid PC Extreme like the plague
Michiel - unhappy Pcextreme client,

PCextreme gets blacklisted frequently, meaning your emails will not be accepted by the majority of recipients.
Service is non existent. If support reacts - not frequently the case - the response is incomplete, often wrong and on occasions rude.
2 day after They don't refund my money. All web page go home link.
