I have been dealing with Sibername for almost 10 years. I use their online service helpdesk if I have problems and I have always experience fast turnaround solutions. The perform some fixes free of charge that I would have ... More to pay extra for with other hosting companies. Less

Useless Service

Not reliable with hosting anymore. Contact only works through chat, which spits out vague comments. Used to be good but have dropped the ball.
AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE!!! Worst out there.
Avoid SiberName,

No Support. Original registrant left the company and they are refusing to change the registrant to a new user account even though we gave them every bit of info they asked for indicating that we are the owners of the business... More .
Call support and you get a call center in India reading a script.
Finally escalate to someone in Ottawa "Brent" and they are useless as well. Even gave the explanation "Sorry, but we can not let you take over the control and move the domain out of our registrar account as I am sure you will do at the first opportunity"
Well duh... with this type of support and business why would anyone want to use your services?
Next Stop ICANN to see what they can do about this rogue registrar
