Outstanding and Budget friendly.

Great for small homebased business and for those just starting out. It is user friendly and easy to maneuver. I would highly recommend this site builder. It is also budget friendly and provides a few billing options.
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

The worst!

Used this website to start my e-commerce business. Absolutely terrible. I worked on my website for 3 weeks and all of a sudden, POOF, it was gone, everything I worked on, GONE. You know what they said? They have no idea what ... More happened and acted like I did something wrong. And they show no record of it, only that I called for support. I paid for this service a year in advanced and when I changed to Spotify they made everything extremely difficult to change. Then they kept my money for services they did not provide. Continue with them if you want but don't say you were not warned. Oh this is a foreign company and they could care less that they put me back weeks from opening my store. NEVER AGAIN. 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
