    I have had a business shared hosting account with HostWinds for about an year now. Never had any problem, until now.

    I setup a woocommerce website to receive payments via paypal. Paypal IPN (Instant Payment Notification) simply does not work with their servers due to some outdated SSL software.

    I let them know by raising a support ticket. They told me to upgrade to VPS.

    Seriously? Isn't woocommerce and PayPal a very basic requirement for a lot of the websites that operate on shared hosting.

    I just needed to vent, because I would end up wasting a lot of time shifting my websites.

    Thanks a lot HostWinds! /sarcasm
