Always Great Service
Mark Smith,

I have a Managed VPS account, which I am thrilled with. Great product and service, as well as extremely fast and on the ball customer support. I won't be looking elsewhere any time soon.

Grew to be awful
Magnetic Post,

We're a TV post house, all we do is send client their videos and delete. I used Verio for 10 years, until one day I uploaded a video file for a client (which we did for 10 years) and they deleted my account with no notice. Se... More ems there was a change in policy. No problem, I deleted Verio. Less
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
