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
Historically awesome, but has really gone downhill fast
Ryan Russell,

I don't know what happened over there, but they used to be awesome. I could create a ticket and get a response within an hour. Now it takes a minimum of 2 days to get a response and even then you end up getting asked basic... More probing questions and waiting 2 more days for a response. I've even called, obviously to some overseas call center, and they couldn't assist with emails stuck in the queue (ie not reaching our inbox). The escalation so far is going on 24 hours for something that historically they'd fix while on the phone with me. Really really gone downhill. 2 years ago I would have whole heartedly recommended them to anyone. Now I would only recommend them to Russian dictators. Less
