I've worked with this company for ten years, and I utilize their managed WordPress products in addition to their virtual servers. Never experienced downtime or problems besides those of my own making. They provide the best cu... More stomer service around. The price point is lower in my opinion and really competitive. Outstanding value for the money. Less

Now they have people cold calling me that are extremely pushy. When I told them I was frustrated with the service I was told "I wasn't fun and that I have a negative attitude" because I didn't want to try their website builder for free. Do not use this service! It's Yahoo before Google came along. Less
