Flummoxed with the negative reviews of TSO Host.
David Willis,

I'm going to quick with my comment. All these negative reviews about TSO Host make no sense, whatsoever. Either they are bot related or the people using the (TSO Host) service are two sandwiches short of a picnic. Either way,... More something seems amiss.
I have used TSO Host for many years. Their customer service is amazingly friendly, informative and helpful. Problems/questions are answered and rectified very quickly.
I have no idea what these 'reviewers' are reviewing. I cannot agree with any of them!
Regards
David

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 should close business
Mimi Mollica,

From being a decent, honest and supportive company, TsoHost recently became all that a company shouldn't be. I have been with them for many years and I was pretty happy, but now they have repeatedly messed up, migrated, chang... More ed several of their settings and type of platforms, while drastically reducing, when not totally cancelling, their customers support. They claim it's 24/7/365 with Live Chat, but Live Chat does not exist!! They have cancelled their phone services and what is worst is that their support ticket service has become excruciatingly slow and inefficient. I have had several occasions when my website froze, emails not working, setting unexpectedly changed and now they are requiring their clients (me) to adjust some DNS record settings, of which obviously I have no clue...and they are not offering any support. AVOID TsoHost at all costs! Less
Terrible hosting

Terrible hosting. Even one Wordpress site does not work on the "Ultimate Business" tariff plan!!! The support service does not solve the problem! When I don't use the site, the RAM is not used. As soon as I work with the site... More , I do elementary things: creating a new Wordpress page, adding a product, then the RAM is working at maximum and the site gives a 503 error. This can't be on a simple Wordpress site. Your hosting works disgusting! Less
