Great service and technical support
Alex R.,

Whenever we need remote hands or technical advice, they go out of their way to assist us. They are easy to get ahold of and their CEO is very much customer-focused with an emphasis on solving problems. Not sure what the other... More reviews are about on here, as it definitely does not reflect the experience we have had.
Our servers are hosted in the original EQX-SY1 facility. Would gladly recommend!

Great Support and Price
Grant Oakes,

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

Waste of time and money

I signed up to Servers Australia and they have wasted my time and money by deploying faulty server, imaging it with evaluation server copy. Mick the Salesman, told his techs not to assist us, when nothing worked and started t... More o upsell.
I will never recommend him or Servers Australia to anyone.
I wish I could give them minus 10
