If you want the best hosting for busy/large sites anywhere in the Netherlands, Webzilla is a great choice. If you are just starting a small site, there may be better/less expensive options. They clearly know their target audi... More ence well, and cater to them. They are always up and running and they are there to help you if you need it. Very happy with this company. Less

Absolute Trash Fire (Avoid At All Costs!!)

So I assume by the general consensus of the reviews hear you've got the gist already, but I thought I'd add my 2 cents to the pile anyway.
Site5 was OK a few years ago when it had (limited) phone support but still had some i... More ssues (it's native Wordpress Installer didn't work for example). Since it sold out to EIG a while back however it's been in a state of steady decline. There's been too many issues to list of late but here's a small sample:
- Not updating PHP on my server leading to one of my websites getting hacked
- the "WHM" area where all websites are accessed being housed on a domain with an outdated SSL again leaving it vulnerable
- Charging me for things I didn't order
- The Live Chat box glitches out if there's more than one tab open
- Continuous price hikes with no warning
As such the service has become something I wouldn't wish upon my enemies. There are some aspects that I like such as (limited) access to Cpanel and Max Upload Filesize of 1000mb on websites however generally speaking I'd suggest people avoid this platform like the plague. I can only imagine that inertia is what's allowing them to retain whatever is left of their customer base but it seems like it's only a matter of the time before the sink ships altogether. Anyway, glad to be done with them!!

Not a very reputable company in my mind this is where the group can bring down an individual site

Here is another example of a company making it too difficult to get copyright infringement images taken down. So this is a great place for Russian punks to do business since Webzilla wants all this personal information from t... More he person who caught the abuse. Do you really need the phone number and address of someone to know that your product image has been stolen? Google doesn't and other reputable hosting companies don't. But this one discourages folks from all this by wanting so much information. So email spammy types love this type of company but in the end such types affect the whole hosting company's websites by getting down rated. You really have to be careful about who hosts your site and if they are looking for bottom feeder accounts at the lowest rates. I was really disappointed in this company's approach and you should be too. If they steal from me then they will steal from you and this company will make it as difficult as possible. One bad apple can affect the whole bunch. So if you are a Russian punk who likes to steal content this is the hosting service for you. Less
