I am fully satisfied
Silvano Berardi,

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
Fantastic Customer Service - (Switched from Site5)

They host multiple sites of mine. I was hesitant about switching because I had heard nothing about them. They are fantastic however.

Nickle and Diming
Brian W,
3.6
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!
