Very simple
Marek Havlik,

I wasn't sure how much effort I would have to put into making my own website. I tried a few different website builders, and while some of them are really easy to use, the results look very generic. With Webnode though I found... More something that I like to use. It's easy to edit my website, it looks good, and the help I got from the support department was great! I was also given a lot of advice on how to get my website found in Google. One downside I noticed so far is that they don't offer SSL. When I asked about it I was told that they're already working on it, but couldn't provide an exact date. All in all, I recommend it for sure. Less
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

Deceptive renewal practices
Bruce Goode,
3.2
The site did not perform to my expectations so I moved to another platform. As the end of my years subscription neared I received multiple emails letting me know that if I didn't renew I would lose my site.
Since I was no lon... More ger using the service I did not renew.
Imagine my surprise when I was charged for another year despite verifying in my account that there was no renewal pending.
When I immediately asked for a refund (within 5 minutes of the charge notice) I received an email stating that I could prevent future charges but no refunds would be given.
The only way to prevent this company from fraudulently charging your credit card is to never use them in the first place.
