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
All hands on deck when needed!

I have had a managed server package with Storm for over 2 years and had no issues. Last week our website was hacked causing thousands of emails to bounce back and flood our systems. Salim and the team at Storm, were straight ... More on it and had the issue under control before any commercial repetitional damage could be done. Job well done, much appreciated at an extremely stressful time. Less
