I am using the WordPress plan of Mochahost. It's superb in performance and I can host unlimited websites. The only problem that I faced often was related to a resource limit problem. Except for this, Mochahost is fast, reliab... More le, and comes with many exclusive features. Thanks to Mochahost never downtime options. Less

Lots of restrictions. Payment method fraudulent. Charge when automatic payment is disabled. Very slow support.
Mario Latendresse,

I asked to have an upgrade of Python so that I could installed Django and it was denied. Their shared server has Python 2.7, and Python 3 was denied to be installed, which has been the standard version for many years (you are... More give a jail shell that restricts most installation). Their basic plan is way too restrictive. You have to get a non-shared server to get any serious work done there and pay lots of money. There is also no way to stop a payment once the invoice is done six weeks in advance. Turning off automatic payment does nothing once the invoice is done and there is no way to remove a credit card once added to do payments. Less
They don't do back-up, they don't take responsability for lost data
Alex Patrut,

We have a total disk usage of 7GB and 437042 Inode. Even if the plan comes with "unlimited" storage, Mochahost considers my disk usage too much to do back-ups. Sadly I discovered that there are no back-ups only when I needed ... More to restore. BTW, the restore was needed because of a bug too with MySQL. The worst part is that I contacted them, offered them to pay them support hours because I was desperate, I asked them to access the back-end and locate the old data that was detached from MySQL. They have a strong policy not to access shared servers from the back-end so they won't help you with any backend support, not even if you pay them.
So here is the summary of why they SUCK big time
[] You don't get backend technical support, not even if you pay them
[] You don't get any guarantee that your data is saved
[] They are not responsible for any data loss, even if they delete it on purpose
[] You won't get any backups because shortly they will consider your usage too much even if in reality 7GB is not that much.
[] They don't have any disaster recovery protection at the server level.
They might say they do everything you want to hear until you need it...
