Amazing VPS service
Mathew Varghese,

The speed and reliability of my vps on SkySilk is amazing- just as advertised. The uptime is higher than 99.5%. I will be uploading many more projects on SkySilk in the near future.
I am fully satisfied

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

I got billed 1 dollar for 1 day ip4 usage... I got billed twice.. waited 11 hours no response. after a while I got a single sentence response: Ask your bank.
Nickle and Diming

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!
