    Hey Nik, I saw earlier today that you said that Hostwinds were scammers. Could you please explain?

    - - - - - -

    I've been with Hostwinds a few months now and yeah, there have been a few downtimes when they have updated stuff, and this morning there were one, but I contacted them about it and in return for their apologies I got a month free hosting.

    I think they're pretty good.

    :)

    Hostwinds is good, I had problem with SSL, with my popup. They helped me solve it. No1 else does that. It is not even their duty to help me still they did. Also I never experience that downtime all are saying. I am using it since 3 months and my friend is using them now for a year.

    Go with them, they are good.

    I have experienced with hostgator and server sea but i think we should now try the new companies as well. Hostwinds is more popluar as compare to hostvizor so use this company for hosting.

    Really appreciate the love guys :)


    Also just a note Hostvizor, is a reseller of Hetzner, so if there is a hardware problem, they are going to be at the mercy of their DC and their response times. We own and operate all of our own hardware, so there are NO middlemen. We designed it in this way so that we never have to wait on anyone for anything, we must have full control, otherwise how can we make any promises to our clients?


    You can use coupon code HWUP and get your first month at 99% off, plus we have a 60 day money back guarantee so there is literally no risk in trying us out.

    Never used Hostwinds, but have talked to them a few times -- once literally for a couple hours on a Sunday about hosting. They seem pretty legit, and like me own their hardware. I would give them a chance. The big companies are ok, but you dont get as good or personal service. Smaller companies are more likely to be proactive and helpful.

    And no one can give you 100% uptime -- even Amazon cloud has crashed before, just look for 99.9% == that means your downtime in a month would be less than 43 minutes.

    There are a lot of costs running a good hosting service, so if you want quality hosting it tends to cost a bit more than 99 cents or 1.99!
