Excellent website, has tons of features, good prices. Support is fast and actually gets things solved. They are really good enough to sign up with. So far I'm very pleased with this company. I have never encountered any probl... More ems and customer support has always been very helpful whenever I contact them. Services are affordable and decent. Less

Login page says "This site is restricted" I have tried to resolve the issue with 6 different support agents, spent more than 2 hours each time, and none of them has been able to help me out. Those guys are completely useless.... More Do yourself a favor and keep your stuff away from this host! Less
Broken English; False Anycast DNS; 14 Day Refund; Minimum 6 Month Billing Period
Brad Darb,

If you don't read French, you will struggle with PlanetHoster documentation; English documentation is fragmented at best. They claim an anycast DNS network, but the reality it is located only in Europe and Montreal; DNS time... More s lag in western North America and anywhere else outside of Europe. Two unicast DNS would server the purpose equally well. After having enough of the whole affair after three weeks I founld out that they only offer a two week refund period, so I am committed to their 6 month minimum billing period. Less
