Great Support and Price
Grant Oakes,
9.2
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

Was good. But support getting worse and worse
Vince Xu,

About 4 years ago I switched from kvchosting to wirenine. The performance improvement is so huge that I was extremely happy. So I not only renewed the plan but also upgraded to high level plan at $45/month. However the suppor... More t is getting worse and worse, high priority tickets are not answered in time. Email server refused my connection now and then, which is never fixed at the root. When it happens, my tickets usually takes hours and hours to get a short response asking more info, which has been in the original ticket because of many times of previous occurrence.
Good speed, bad support trends down. Moved my website away although there are 7 months of hosting left (worth over $300).
