Great Hosting Company
Husain Haboubi,

I have no idea why this company is having bad reviews on this website but they have been extremely helpful with me. I got a VPS and they configured my server, transferred all of my domains, files, databases, email ... etc, fr... More om my previous company and even configured my DNS on my domain provider. Technical support is great they would do whatever you tell them and install any plugin you request. They even offered to fix an issue with my ticket system that they have nothing to do with. I'd definitely recommend them. Less
Excellent service

Always appreciate the speed and quality of support. You never know when you'll need it, but when you need it, you need it now. Good work, folks.

AVOID LIKE PLAGUE

I have been a client for 11 years. server.ecepts.net was my server. They started out much like liquidweb is now, reliable, excellent equipment, English speaking telephone support 24/7 that was super helpful.
A few years ago, ... More just stopped all phone support.
After that they shut my server completely down while I was on vacation (after being with them for 9 years and never missing a payment, they shut my server and all sites down over a $65 payment that didn't go through on a credit card).
In June/July 2018, my service was down/spotty for 45 days while they corrected a server node issue.
Over the last 2 months I have been migrating away from them to another company, but I needed to do it one site at a time (and updating each site as I go).
Today, again my sites were down & could not log into root. You cant all anyone, so you open a ticket, or chat support.
After I get on with chat support, bingo sites are working now (what the hell was the problem... we will never know).

Dreadful support - site down for 3 days
Tony Featherstone,

Worst mistake of my life was signing up with these guys. One of my accounts was hacked and their abuse team sent me an email alerting me to the files that were malicious. I deleted all of them except one (which I missed by mi... More stake). Because of this, on a Friday night, they shut my site down - took it off line. Then they give me the spin that their 'abuse team' is different from their "support team" and they only work 9-5 monday to friday - no after hours support. So my site is now offline until Monday at the earliest. Dreadful service, in no way fit for a professional business to rely on. Please learn from my mistake, avoid these guys at all costs. Less
