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

Ultimete 1 "unlimited" plan
Gintcho Kostov,

I bought unlimited hosting from this company. When I started to upload my backup I understood that I have a number of limitation /198GB instead of unlimited as it is in the offer!/ the chosen by me plan. More, after opening... More tickets I realized that the parameters on the order screen are not the actual I use! This was the most terrible fact I met with the order with this company! They make my month charge higher without any notice. After creation of a ticket they reverted the price to the "original". What a business?! ALso, they have hidden charges for setup fees.
Finally I decided to cancel my order. Screenshots are attached for more info.
