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

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

Nickle and Diming
Brian W,

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!
