I started using Typical Hosting about 3 years ago their services are great and I have never had any downtime. Their customer support is great considering they only have an email & ticket system in place and usually I woul... More d get a reply within 10mins-4hours depending, but. They have very friendly staff who have helped me with my website a lot! and if they can't do anything on their side they send me in the right direction so I can get my problems resolved.
I would also like to add that their pricing can seem a bit much but after using their services I can comfortably say am much happier here than my previous hosting provider.

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

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
