I had been using hostwinds for 2 years now,and they were fine,not best,but cheat and good. But they have a lots of down time,because of their hosting getting some ddos attacks my sites were down for like 3 days (different time,not in a row),and I lost some money because of it. They are offerening me ddos protection for 100$ per month (for that money I could buy good vps). Best thing is I really don't think somebody ddos my websites,it was probably all sites in that server,or something like that, I really don't know because I am not expert,but what I know is they are bad. They are getting worse then before,and chat support is bad. I don't want to hate on them,but I just feel like i should WARN you,about them. There are few hostings that cost a little bit more,but they don't have down time like hostwinds,and have far better protection etc. I did tested them,my friend also,for example I tested siteground,my friend did inmotion hosting and siteground,same websites,with similar traffic. I have results somewhere on analytics I can send them if somebody want but I don't want to make huge thing about this. Just saying my opinion about them. Also at the moment I am talking with hostwinds chat support and they don't answer. First they said it is not bad for SEO,etc,and when I told them that I am losing money they didn't answered for 20 minutes now. Just saying my opinion.
