    A few days ago i purchased the smalles hosting package by hostwinds.com.
    I saw the improvement in stability here on blackhatworld and was curious about this CloudFlare - Thing and its performance optimization, the price was well and so I thought i give it a try.

    A minute after my purchase I had every data i needed to start through in a well organized e-mail.
    Everything works as expected. I love webhosts that offer cPanel and not some self-coded crap. So went there did this and that and found the CloudFlare button. The setup was done in no time, just a few clicks - really easy. I am not that kind of techy guy, that can explain what it does, but my loading time has improved quickly.

    Today I wrote the support with a not so important question. Guess what? I had my answer in 5 minutes. That is really cool.

    I am in no way associated with Hostwinds, just want to share my nice experience with them.

    If you are in search for a host, they are recommended for a try!

    What about their Reseller Account? Is it good?
    Because i'm in the midst of looking for reseller account to setup a small webhost solution for my local market.

    Thanks for the helpful review. I'm going to try HostWind when my hosting plan with my current hosting company expires. What I like about HostWind is that they give repeating customers better discounts every year, unlike other hosts who give a huge discount on the initial purchase, but then squeeze out the customer with every renewal for years to come.

    P.S. I'm not affiliated to HostWinds in any way either.

    Sorry PapaRock, I don't have a Reseller Account there and can't answer your question. Perhaps something else?:confused:

    I work with HostWinds too.. the admin over there is a cool helpful guy.. God knows how many times I 'spammed' him with my problems xD There were days when instead a 'hi', I was receiving a 'you again?' among a smile, not to be misunderstood :) Had my sites running well, even upgraded for a better package. Not trying to brag too much about it, but I can recommend it. Now it hosts bhw.. it amazed me when I saw the logo at he bottom :/

    Moved a few domains on there as I want to start doing some web services and see how good they are.

    Very good support who are polite and setup is pretty fast (as I didn't want to setup cPanel myself, $15 for them to do it all was good!)

    I too just set up a domain with them for .3 cents on the first month lol. Just waiting for godaddy to except the servenames. Will share my experience once I have sometime with the hosting.


    EDIT: Had a small problem (though it was a problem) along with a question had it answered via email in 10 minutes as well contact made via Skype. Looks promising.
