Absolutely 5 star
Debbie Mulder,

Wow. Yes. 5 stars. Great stuff Register Domain SA! Customer support is brilliant, backed by sound technical assistance. I absolutely enjoy communicating and working with Register Domain SA. Their online support ticketing and ... More billing system is efficient and easy to use. I am confident. My account is managed. My billing data is private and secure, My packages and services are always active and updated - allowing me to concentrate on my creative design work. The packages are affordable and upgrading my services and packages via my account dashboard is easy-on-the-go. Their website is clean, the data is easy to read, the information is accurate and I understand. I receive regular mail updates about my packages and services. I am happy to access my cpanel at anytime. All my data is displayed accurately on the dashboard. Local is lekker! 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 wrongfully suspended my hosting account on a Sunday morning, no support was available to rectify 6 hours later only I got a "non-apology" for the stuff up and service was reinstated - clearly not taking support service seriously
