"Positive experinece. "

What do you like best?

is a great webhosting company. They have everything and offer everything in order to make their Hostwinds customers happy to be their customers. I would say some of the benefits that keep me a happy customer is that they have the best-in-industry live customer support, 24 / 7 no matter what time it is they have someone there to help you at anytime time. Also, it's very positive and comfortable feeling to know that Hostwinds has fierce protection of personal information which helps to feel like your personal information is safe.

What do you dislike?

I want to have cheaper prices on their quality services but overall I am completely satisfied.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Hostwinds is amazing they have the best response time I ever seen. When I first started my website I had a problem with my server loading so I made one phone call to their support team and let me tell you I was shocked on how fast an issue like that got fixed. I highly recommend giving this hosting provider a chance they will AMAZE you. I love being their customer.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

They run fairly quick and there's hardly any downtime. To be honest I've been with them for a while now and they've shown me the out most respect. The price is good for what you're getting to build your site and the support is great as they're very helpful when I call in with questions.

"A budget vps with quality support. "

What do you like best?

Well I was looking for a budget VPS with quality support. It was the first time I was trying to host websites on VPS and support was one of the main factors. After reviewing lot on the web I have chosen Hostwinds.

My selection has proved right till date.

The server has never gone down. The control panel is simple to use and provides all statistics. They have a good knowledgebase and wiki online.

What do you dislike?

I want to say that their services a bit high but they are worth it. They know their work well and their services are beyond praise.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Thank goodness for Hostwinds that I managed to. They gave me step-by-step instructions and their support is unbelievable. I've been messing up a lot of time and Hostwinds never fails me. My site is much faster than my previous one, and I am ultimately satisfied. Keep it up!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Their live chat people are always there to assist. Since I was totally new to managing VPS, initially I raised lot of support questions. Their support team is very helpful and helped a lot.

They proved that there is no much technical expertise required to manage a VPS. I rarely faced any problems with Hostwinds and they have handled the problems which I created (not from their side). They are good option for anyone looking for quality hosting withing the budget. I would surely recommend everyone to give Hostwinds a try !

"Good web host with helpful technical support team!"

What do you like best?

Very Satisfied. Glad I have found Hostwinds website hosting. I have been a costumer for over 3 months and have been extremely satisfied with this host for various reasons: speed, reliability, and support. Prior to using their cloud web hosting, I had a website running on their shared hosting. The customer service is amazing and they are always helping me. Recommended.

What do you dislike?

Nice web hosting provider. Pricing is a bit high, but I will continue using their hosting services for many years to come.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I never make a recommendation of service, but in the case of HostWinds I will make an exception. If you are still looking and pondering, ponder no more, these guys are so helpful.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

When I had problems with their service and posted a video about it online, Hostwinds themselves reached out to me even though I didn't even ask for it. Now I am happy!

"The best hositng provider U have ever used. "

What do you like best?

So far it has been great with HostWinds, the major plus of their company is definitely their support,they help you with anything. They are cheap when you want to buy, they are a good priced hosting provider. Overall I am very happy with the service, there are only some minor issues, but I will not change host now. I felt really good that my website is always up and loads faster than most of my competitors website.

I have also contacted their support several times, it takes 5 minutes on an average for a customer representative of hostgator to come on chat to help you. Ads it is great.

What do you dislike?

Hostwinds has never given me problems... and If I've had one, it's always been super easy to get help. The support is fantastic.

Recommendations to others considering the product

One thing I love is their support. 24 X 7 chat with highly capable individuals from both billing and support.

The support is 5 stars, they're very good and quick. I don't think one needs anything better than that.

using them I fell safe and sound and all my troubles went away - I hope - forever and ever.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Hostwinds team usually reply 5 minutes after you submit your ticket"

What do you like best?

Wanna thank Hostwinds for providing me with good hosting service. I have been very pleased with the support even when it is not their fault. Never got an angry support rep.

It has a nice pricing, and a nice customer support, but still pricing should be reduced a bit.

"Perfect Host for Any Site – Recommended"

What do you like best?

I appreciate Hostwinds's quality of service, from the reliability of their servers to their live chat support, and enthusiastically recommend Hostwinds to my clients and colleagues. When i asked all the necessary questions i needed and their support answered it politely i've decided to get an account.

I'm very happy going with Hostwinds and for sure i will be using them for years..

What do you dislike?

They usually reply 30-40 minutes after you submit your ticket with a logical answer. I'd like to wait for 5-10 minutes.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I have multiple websites and my sites got little slow a while ago and when I posted a ticket they responded very fast and offered me to move to different server. Some of the things people forget is that in shared hosting websites tend to get little slow.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

They did the backups and transfers until the old host finally made a good copy that was usable. They spent about 30 minutes just to get my sites all moved and running correct. Love them.

"Hostwinds ssd vps hosting is fast - I like it very much"

What do you like best?

I wanna thank hostwins team! I've already notice an improvement in load time for my site and the bulletin board is probably twice as fast as the old one. Price is less then market price compared to other hosts that offer the same features which is nice to know you're saving money. The features are the best part because you get cPanel which is my favorite control panel compared to like plesk which was the only option at my old host.

What do you dislike?

I had some issues in the beginning with my VPS. I would have times where the VPS was responsive.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Their tech staff is helpful around the clock and prices are competitive. If you are facing troubles, their professional team will solve them fast.

Their claim that their support is the fastest in the world might well be true. Their network and server uptime are perfect as my site is always online. I have never had a problem with billing and my account gets automatically renewed monthly without problem or additional charges.

What do you dislike?

I believe the only unscheduled downtime I experienced in three months was when a massive blackout affected the majority of region I live in.

Recommendations to others considering the product

They are a lovely bunch of people, quick to serve and extremely helpful, i recommend them in a heart beat! You won't go wrong with them.

Very happy with price, service & support.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My first sales support question was answered very promptly, which was a good start. But... Sales support is often good, it is the service that usually fails miserably - not with hostwinds. I cannot speak highly enough of the tech support provided by them today. They are professionals.

All wanna say that hostwinds provide cheap and reliable ssd hosting services.

They have exceeded my expectations time and time again, super fast servers and support.

They are professionals - this is what I want to tell you about them. Thanks a lot - you are totally amazing!

Pricing is good and they offer much resources within their hosting packages.

Speed is fast. Nothing to complain about.

I am fully satisfied running my site with Hostwinds and start thinking of transferring my other web sites to them. Recommended.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I would also like to add that doing routine things such as dns changes, nameserver updates and registrar transfers is extremely simple with Hostwinds. It is a simple domain registration site, with a handful of helpful features that are popular with reviews.

"Quality hosting for OpenCart application."

What do you like best?

You know OpenCart is a progressive web application which Hostwinds provides in a quality manner for their customers and I have decided to try it. Well I want to say it is great. It is user-friendly and makes running of the e-commerce projects quality. OpenCart application gives many positive things to their users like it increases user engagement on the store and it increases the store revenue due to user engagement. It is completely responsive on all the platforms and looks and feels like a native application and many more. All works perfectly well on Hostwinds servers which are well-balanced and cost not much.

What do you dislike?

I would like to have quicker technicians, I mean they answer me within 1-2 minutes. It is my dream to get answer immediately and I think it is a dream of many other web masters to chat with a technician online.

Recommendations to others considering the product

They are the best in the whole IT world.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Hostwinds helps me much to run e-stores successfully using an OpenCart application. I get good revenue having a deal with this company and it makes them attractive for a lot of webmasters all over the IT world. It is rather hard to find a decent and respectable company which takes a good care of all their customers.

So hosting e-commerce projects with them is a sound idea and it is a profitable business. they make your hosting life easier in many ways. And I appreciate it and thankful to them.

"My VPS is quick - thanks to Hostwinds team!"

What do you like best?

I have more than 7 years of experience in developing and hosting websites and applications using different types of technologies, but this is the first time I deal with such a great web hosting provider like Hostwinds.com - great job, guys. Their VPS service is perfect in all the ways (speed, uptime, features, customer tech support, discounts). Quick response, experts on Joomla and Wordpress, very welcoming, very efficient. Great value for money and many packages to suit individual needs.

What do you dislike?

If they reduce their pricing a bit, they will be the best web hosts EVER and EVER.

Recommendations to others considering the product

So far, I am extremely impressed with these guys. There is nothing that counts more than decent support and they go beyond the call. I really hope the rest of the support team are like this.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I issued a support ticket at 1:00am in the morning. (I messed up on a Joomla and wordpress uninstallation)They responded to the ticket and had the problem solved in 20 minutes!! Amazing team work.

"Thank you Hostwinds team, your commitment towards my web hosting is great"

What do you like best?

Good experience here. I have noticed that their support team is well equipped with latest customer management tools and HostWinds is using good hardware, server grade material never fails them. cPanel they use of one of the best in the world. So, they have all end tied up. That's how is works well for them and of course for me. Another best thing about Hostwinds is uptime. Infact no down time.

What do you dislike?

Everything works good, there is nothing to complain about.

As for pricing, it is competitive, but still it would be great if hostwinds team reduce them a bit.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend them all the time and would recommend them above any other hosting company I have dealt with.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I needed to install several apps and hostwinds team were fast about that. Majority of support issues are answered within 15 minutes by the support techs.

"Highly recommend Hostwinds to anyone!"

What do you like best?

Can say that HostWinds is a good ssd based storage web host, and I've recommended them to several people who now also use them and are impressed with their uptime and website speeds.

What do you dislike?

Support is usually great, my only complain being that the original average support response time of 20 minutes is now more like 30-40 hours. This is to be expected with the kind of growth they've experienced, however.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The techs contact me checking to see if I have any issues just to be on the safe side.

Finally I've found a good home for my web sites, HostWinds is the best solution for hosting any kind of web sites. No doubt, your sites will be in good hands, friends.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Good job, I like everything about them. I had no hesitation in recommending them to my friends!

"Features are very good. Hostwinds hosting service is reliable"

What do you like best?

My experience dealing with Hostwinds web host and their ssd based VPS hosting service has been great. Easy access to my data and mail, and the fastest, most reliable customer service in the industry. My customer support questions are answered within 1 hour. The answers I receive are clear and very helpful.

What do you dislike?

It would be great if their support team answer within 20 minutes instead of 1 hour, but still it is ok. All in all, I am glad.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I'd say they are friendly people, have good service, good value for money and only minor flaws. I'm confident enough with Hostwinds to host all of my sites with them - both personal and business.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Impeccable support, yes on weekends too, fast servers and very well priced. I have domain hosted on hostwinds linux ssd vps hosting account and just renewed it for next 3 months after looking around for better deals and, as usual, finding none. I've placed my order! And everything was really set up in an hour.

I want to say thank you - Hostwinds - for your top-notch services which are helpful for me in many aspects. Their servers have no downtime, I would say even they have 100% uptime and network .... it's stable and fully-redundant. What else?! Well ... their technicians ... they know their work well, all my questions are answered fast and quality and they help me much is fixing a lot of issues which were on my side. I guess they are the best ... at least I have never had better support than from this hosting provider. I appreciate it as my success depends on this fact.

What do you dislike?

I would like to have a little bit cheaper prices on their services which are full of useful resources. Other things work well with them.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Needed quality hosting services - Hostwinds is right for that as they take a good care of all their customers providing quality services in a webmaster-friendly manner.

"I like the way they work for me. "

What do you like best?

I have used this company services for a while and I am impressed them, I mean their services, their technicians skillful and their patience in treating their customers. They have answered all questions I put them and they have never ignored me. Their technicians know much and their help means much for me and for running my IT business. Nobody ever has helped me in such a webmaster-friendly manner. That is why I am going to be with them as long as possible. And I recommend them to any web master who are interested in getting quality and reliable hosting services. It is really difficult to find such trustworthy hosting company with affordable prices.

What do you dislike?

I would like to have lower prices and it is a usual desire of any webmaster but I know what I pay for. But it is not a problem for me at all. Sometimes they offer attractive discounts which make their services more attractive for many webmasters.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use them as they are proven to be the best in delivering quality services at low rates.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This company has helped me much in running my website, due to their quality services I have succeeded in the IT industry.

"Customer care is excellent"

What do you like best?

Best of all I like all of their technical aspects. Hostwinds' technical team are real professionals as for me and they are controlling their environment to perform properly and smoothly. At the beginning of my experience with them I was ignorant of anything to do with running websites and support guys were always kind and polite to explain me how everything works. The system is always up ans working fast, I believe it is because techies are constantly maintain servers and network to avoid any possible troubles. I have not encountered any unexpected troubles and so far the only trouble I have is connected with lack of my experience in setting up all these databases, scripts, domain zones etc. Good hosting that hard to find another one similar nowadays, so I hope they will continue making me happy and free of all that headaches connected with slow loading of my websites.

What do you dislike?

As a newbie I'd like to see more tutorials and manuals on their website, it will be much more useful and give their techies more free time, because I won't need to contact them anytime I don't understand what am I doing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

As I know they are offering 50% off coupon for first month, so you can ask about that when purchasing service for first time, why not?

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

They are providing website hosting with high stability and very fast speeds, that's all I needed.

"Technical support knows what to do"

What do you like best?

I have used their support via tickets several times to ask about some software tweaks and response has been uniformly quick and competent. I have used cheaper hosts before and received rather ok stability, but lack of support knowledge and speed. Now with hostwinds I always sure they will be available for me whenever I need and I don't have to wait for hours till they will respond. The most recent experience was with tech department: my question was addressed in 16 minutes. They are always polite and deliver comprehensive replies, sometimes I even ask them to make something for me and they happily do it in a professional and what is more important quick manner. By now I have not noticed significant hardware troubles or network outage, no glitches and smooth performance for their servers. Well done tech support! I hope you won't fail in future and will continue developing your services to be more reliable company, there is always a place for improving.

What do you dislike?

I wish to get more features for administration, surely cpanel is good control panel but it lack of flexible features for some daemon tweaks which you have to do manually via shell.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are ready to pay for quality you should consider Hostwinds as your primary hosting provider

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"The best Wordpress service I have ever used!"

What do you like best?

It was a great surprise for me to find such quality and reliable Wordpress hosting services. Hostwinds knows their work well providing a wide range of Wordpress-friendly services. And their pricing policy ... it is smooth, flexible and straightforward. There are no hidden pitfalls. All is clear and they are open. Support is fast and when I contact them even at night, they are active and helpful for me and it means much for me. It's true. I want you to know they work for their customers in a quality manner and help when you need it. It is not easy to find such a company with such level of responsibility!

What do you dislike?

I would like them to work faster while solving issues if they occur .

Overall I cannot say many bad words of them as they work taking into account the demands of their customers.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want to succeed in the Wordpress hosting, use Hostwinds plans with no hesitations as they are really the best in this sphere. My blog runs well with no glitches or downtime. They also have fully-redundant network. All I ask them for, they do with no hassles.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have hosted my Wordpress blog with them in a successful and profitable manner. I have no bad experience with them as their load speed is fast and technicians are helpful in many ways even when I put stupid questions. They are rather patient with me and I appreciate it.

"I like Hostwinds LiveChat that works 24/7!"

What do you like best?

Hey dudes,

Here is my experience with this Litespeed ssd web host. Tickets are answered in about 15 minutes !! INSANE ! (Most web hosts answer between 24 to 48 hours, even 1-2 days).

I also love the fact that they run promotions for existing customers.

They provide all the features you can think of. I found the User Control Panel and one step installation plugins (Wordpress, Dotclear, phpBB, etc.) and streaming very useful for my purposes. Plenty of bandwidth & disk space. Far more than I've used.

I have also referred many friends to them and all say they are good.

I Recommend Host!

What do you dislike?

Nothing bad to say about Hostwinds services, just I am happy I've chosen them. Now I have all I need and even more!

Recommendations to others considering the product

These guys are top of the line Pros and really refreshing to see a company getting it right & doing it right.

I beyond recommend hosting with these guys.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

They treat me personally and have called me on a few ocassions as well. I bought their ssd shared hosting for $5/mo, they contacted me immediaty and asked if I needed any help - all in all, I was impressed, they helped to upload all my files and from that time my site is running fast and efficiently.

"Successful webmaster! "

What do you like best?

Since I am renting a server, I would also like someone else to take care of all the management! Thanks to HostWinds and their excellent fully managed server options. A great help from them I have got. They are a great hosting company. You pay more than some companies, but it seems to be well worth it since support is always willing to help, even if it isn't their problem. Thanks to them, I have succeeded in the IT industry greatly.

What do you dislike?

As usual I would like to have their quality services at more inexpensive prices. And sometimes websites load not very fast but it happens not very often.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Set up with HostWinds is simple, easy, and affordable (in terms of money and time). Set up only takes a few minutes and they provide tons of support and services for you and your clients! You create your name, packages, and features—and make money off the profits! Your clients are able to create beautiful and profitable websites for their own businesses! I am thankful for this new business adventure!!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With HostWinds, set up for selling is easy and fast. They give you all the tools need to sell including multiple free websites and freedom to create packages and prices. It is up to you! Best of all the service is all on them allowing you to just concentrate on selling. They are really helpful for me in many aspects and I am using them with pleasure. I left my old hosting company because there were so many issues and problems. All those issues are gone now. I was able to keep my customers and switch them with very little hassle. I wish I would have switched to hostwinds long ago.

"Now I see they were excellent choice"

What do you like best?

I moved to Hostwinds because I needed quality company and the only way to measure the quality for me without having experience is a price, it is very hard to get something bad for high price. So far Hostwinds has been very impressive with their service be it customer care or hardware. I really enjoy their guaranteed stability of servers and network, there is virtually no not-scheduled downtime happened and it is definitely what I need and I assume any hosting provider customer needs. Friendly tech support is also rather fast, in some cases no really but I believe it is due to time difference. My hosting account comes with everything needed like control panel, emails and script installer, it is very easy to use and interface is intuitive. Being Hostwinds customer I am confident that if I have any problem or question it will be resolved with expediency and professionalism. Great work guys, thank you for your professionalism.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes you have to wait for reply of support for more than average time. And I'd suggest Hostwinds staff to think about ways to shorten this time. Furthermore pricing may be lower or I'd suggest to implement some kind of discount system for loyal customers.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use them with no doubts, I don't think you will have to regret about this choice ever.

"Good for LiteCart application. "

What do you like best?

It's a good hosting for LiteCart application. I have downloaded this application within two clicks. Their tech staff is always ready to help me out in fixing a lot of issues which occur from time to time on my side. They accept Paypal and it's convenient for me. They have consistently good performance. It's a real pleasure to have a deal with. Overall it's not easy to find a reliable host but Hostwinds is such a hosting provider Just my point of view. And I'm grateful to them for their unparalleled services which are reliable and stable.

What do you dislike?

Unfortunately they do not have a phone support .

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are looking for a decent and reliable hosting, Hostwinds is right for that. Their services are unmatched and prices are not comparing to the amount of resources included in their plans. Having no a phone support does not influence much their level of support as they are always great and online and helpful for 24 hours a day and it means much for and for my business.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

They have become my business partners because of their top-notch services. Thanks to them I have used LiteCart hosting easily and and reliably. They are helpful for me around the clock even at night hours. You know it means much for me and I appreciate it. There are no many companies which run their business in such a webmaster-friendly manner.

I have used a number of hosting companies over the years, but nothing can beat Hostwinds. Not only are they great value for money, but they also have a really helpful customer service team, fast US based servers and a great one-click Wordpress installation. Everything I need!

Yeah, their ssd litespeed hosting is very fast - I like it!

What do you dislike?

Sometimes it took over 2 hours for them to solve the issues I experience from time to time.

Time and time again the superb support staff at hostwinds have gone out of their way to help with issues I have normally created myself.

"You can rely on Hostwinds "

What do you like best?

I'd tell about Hostwinds advantages according to my experience.

First of all they have up-to-dated software that works properly with no issues by far.

Secondly, server hardware is really enterprise and maintained well, I can see that because zero downtime has been noticed till now. And for me this is huge benefit.

Time to time I have had difficulties connected with hosting account and software features, but I could quickly get all needed details from their support.

Technical and billing support teams are both fast, that is their main advantage. Techies additionally have rich experience in hosting maintenance and they are ready to solve any kind of issue be it software or hardware deal. Generally their support staff is friendly, responsive and have high expertise in hosting. I am quite satisfied and at first was very impressed how quick they are in their responses, I recognize I am not the only one their customer who contact them occasionally, but they are always there when needed. For me that is the main reason why I would stay with Hostwinds for more.

What do you dislike?

Pricing is a bit high, small variety of additional features, sometimes it is not enough resources. Everything is if we compare them with their competitors in industry.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Check for forum boards for promos from them.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Fantastic user-friendly service"

What do you like best?

From the very beginning they have treated me well. They have average pricing rates, not unique set of features just autoinstaller of scripts and cpanel with its normal feature list. But technically Hostwinds is ideal. My website is available for 100% and litespeed with ssd makes file accessibility which means loading instant. Also I am extremely pleased dealing with someone in their technical support department, these guys are replying in minutes (average for me is 20 minutes) and have enough knowledge and experience to address any query or issue. To summarize I am sure that Hostwinds totally worth every cent they charge even if you hesitate about high price you should consider that you get what you've paid for. I feel comfortable and headache-free with Hostwinds shared hosting because I don't need to worry about my websites stability or loading speed and it is awesome. Great job!

What do you dislike?

They haven't suggested me any promo coupon, however after I started to use them I have found offer of 50% on first month on 3rd party forum board. Their price is a bit high comparing to competitors and I hope they will implement more features for that price.

Recommendations to others considering the product

They have litespeed and ssd that makes their performance high, so they are best option for big databases for faster accessibility

"Wow, I must say they are good!"

What do you like best?

I host PhpCollab based web site.

I like Hostwinds.com ssd host because it provides really fast ssd hosting services.

Uptime and support have been excellent!

They actually answer their emails, and within a few minutes. Great support. It's the best. You can enter a service request in and most of the time it will be answered within minutes.

They use Litespeed server, their ssd hosting is fast.

I'm also satisfied with then completely useful easy-to-use cPanel.

What do you dislike?

Hostwinds ssd hosting is a little expensive in comparison with other hosting sellers, but it is very very difficult to find elsewhere such a support service. For me it is the principal aggregate value.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I have been in touch with support department constantly, because one day I needed full rebut, another day I need help with installation needed stuff etc. They have always been fast to respond. So, contact them if you need help, they are online and always happy to help.

"Hostwinds really cares about clients satisfaction"

What do you like best?

Most of all I liked their perfectly tweaked and optimized servers. That gives outstanding uptime and no hardware malfunction noticed so far. My stability is monitored by script and it never showed less than 100% in the only exception when there were planned server or network maintenance.

Each hosting account is powered by litespeed server and based on solid enterprise level hardware, solid state drive make loading speeds really fast, especially I see the difference when interacting with my databases.

Support department has been available anytime I needed them. Their support guys are polite and always trying to resolve even the smallest question you have, I see they are truly skilled technical guys, not just online secretaries or bots like those 'thanks for submitting your question, we will contact you as soon as possible'.

What do you dislike?

I would like to see more promos and discounts from them, because price seems to a bit high, especially considering how competitive hosting industry is.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are looking for hosting with decent uptime and server speed you should definitely go with Hostwinds. Also they are offering coupon codes so new users can ask them for promo available for now and get first month discount to ensure in their reliability for discounted price, I think it is great attraction for new customers.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am hosting my Wordpress based business website and my main target is to have 100% uptime, Hostwinds made it possible.

What do you like best?

No German speaking person in support. Prices in US dollars.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Hallo!

Good web hosting provider for DataBase application management tools. Has only USD currency and has only English speaking support. You won't have headache with service and service uptime. These features are perfect. You have to understand they are USA based provider. However they have good ping in Germany Wilhelmsdorf.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was searching for database management tools. Webhostingtalk.com was the forum where I seen the offer from Hostwinds. I asked if they can host WebCollab and if they could help me to install that. Hostwinds said they have Softaculos (like a scripts collection) so I will be able to use them with no problem.

Later I discovered that they have prices in US dollars. Here in Germany we used to have prices in Euro so I had to re-calculate costs on my own to discover rel price in Euro. That is not really good. After order they put my account on hold and I received ticket said I had to verify identity. So I did that for them.

Next I discovered they do not have German speaking people in support. English is not my native language .But these are details. I ordered them for good service and I have that good service and my web script just work perfect ideal.

"LiteCart® hosting experience with Hostwinds. "

What do you like best?

a) support of LiteCart® app for my business;

b) provided possibility to test hosted solution before signing up;

c) they can offer next level plan for me in case I need it when site starts growing;

d) fast support;

e) payment options.

What do you dislike?

a) no SEO tools added to the plan. Some hosted solutions include some SEO tools though;

b) time difference between me and my current service provider, so we have delays in communication;

c) no support of my app. Actually they are doing hosting part and for rest I have to find other places for my application discussions to find out the way;

d) no backup service. I have to purchase additional stuff.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Ask them for testing before start using service for any app.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm single doing person who is looking to start own online ecommerce projct. Actually I'm on the start and as I was told main part of my business - something what i will be based on is my hosting. So I spend a few days researching and testing and Hostwinds won my casting and was nominated to be used. Now I'm in process and from the hosting side of my story I do get full support and have never had serious problem.

For those fellows who is seeking for the hosted services I can recommend them as good provider. But do not expect from them more then good hosting service. In case you are working with application you will have to discover that app without their help.

The ordering process was pretty simple and easy to follow the instructions they gave me. I got my answers though Hostwinds FAQ section for few things, and got the rest from the support, which they are very helpful on resolving two sticking issues I have.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I've had questions that were answered and fixed within minutes, and complex problems worked on by the hosting admins personally resolved in only a couple hours... and they seem to be available almost all the time.

I like the unique features they offer within their hosting packages.

Reliability has exceeded my expectations.

"Speed, uptime - I have all what I need. "

What do you like best?

As my title says I do appreciate high uptime. Since I need that for my marketing/advertising related apps I use. Connection speed is also important as for me as I need to have fast response from MySQL databases and have huge amount of data to operate with.

Such features are most vital here for me and till now I have got tem and appreciate this fact.

What do you dislike?

Huh... Difficulty to say at the first view. Maybe payment system variety. As far as I remember only 4 of them. I have Skrill (former Moneybookers).

What yet? Support chat assistant (right bootom corner) acts as importunate poerson asking if I have a questions or issues to solve.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Good and easy to use provider. For shared hosting - recommended. For other activities - can't say, cause never used.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

If you asjk me about the problems then I can ensure you that I do not have problems at all with them for the time I've been using Hostwinds. They are type of guys which are doing web hosting services and do not invent something extra. As I've mentored about uptime is 100% for those weeks I'm with them. Speed level is accpeted and I'm satisfied about those 2 features. I used other companies and always had issues realted to uptime when without any serious reasons server was down and I had to wait to get that solved to manage my business. So main idea of new host search was a batch of features uptime and speed. And I have go that. Never asked support for help - no comments.

"About 2 months with hostwinds "

What do you like best?

The fact they support wordpress application and the fact they support paypal payments. I checked a lot of local companies in Europe but this based in United States of America was the best for my New York audience and end users. Paypal is the safest payment gateway and I appreciate they have it as for payment option.

What do you dislike?

Time difference between me and sales and billing team. When I had some questions I had to wait up to 10 hours to get response from billingf and sales team. Support work around the clock but they do not provide phone calls as communication channel for their support. But those are minor minuses for their service.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Test, test and test again. You are not forbiden to test the service before send even 1 euro for the services from any company. Only you as prospective site admin and user can make sure and decide if they are going to satosfy you or not.

They do not forbid to test theirr services - so do not be shy and just ask about them.

Other thing - contact them for your payment method. That is not clearly posted on their web site so you have to ask them about that before you decide buy them or not.

After my 2 months with hostwinds I have nothing extremly bad to say. They are fine and I can recommend for Wordpress for sure.

Important thing as for me.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Wordpress hosting is what I needed. Good ping to New York (none of Europa based companies can have better ping to New York USA then US hosting vendors). So that was a must to have good ping.

"It works for Zen Cart application. Perfect "

What do you like best?

Uptime. First of all I have never found my web hosting account and site down. Plus when I run test at uptrends I always have only "green marks". I think that is quite important for such kind of web sites I have.

Payment options. The fact I can pay via bitcoin encourages me. Not every company can accpet Bitcoin as payment option. But they do and that is really great as for me.

What do you dislike?

Requests solving. I mean when I need their help I have to write them and then immediately I got response that they now aware of my problem and looking into it. But real problem solving takes 20 mins up to 40 mins. I do not know though how does it work in other companies.

No phone support. So far they have live chat only.

Recommendations to others considering the product

First of all I want to speak of myself. As for me Hostwinds suits me 100% but I know there is not ideal host for everyone and that's why I placed 8 in "recommend to friend" field, because I do not know exactly if that will be fine for other users.

Good payment options, easy to use control; panel and good uptime make me remain their clients and so far I do not plan to move.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

They are service provider and at some extend I can call them business partner, but really they are service provider for me and I'm satisfied with them and their services.

"Uptime is amazing, the servers are top notch!"

What do you like best?

I can't believe how much of a breath of fresh air it is working with Hostwinds. So professional and knowledgeable and always at hand any day of the week to chat. Furthermore I can't believe the service I get included such as backups which has recently helped me out after I accidentally overwritten some files. Again thanks so much for everything so far, recommend to anyone.

What do you dislike?

I like everything about this host. Nothing to complain about.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Quality and affordable hosting with an unrivaled focus on providing, in my opinion some of the best support I've seen from a web hosting company. I always recommend my clients to go with Hostwinds.

"I like the way they work. "

What do you like best?

You know I have spent much time trying to find a right host for my needs and asked my friends about the hosting companies they used and Hostwinds was advised me to try. I thought - why not?! They offer unlimited plan (unlimited bandwidth, unlimited disk space, unlimited domains) at $6.74/mo with 25% discount. plus they also offer 60 day money back guarantee, 99.999% uptime guarantee, 100% satisfaction guarantee - all these things seemed very attractive for me and I have made up my mind to try them and I have never felt sorry about this decision. It was a real success for me. Their support is fast and prompt and skillful in fixing issues if they occur.

What do you dislike?

Nevertheless their services are not pricey, I would like to have their plan cheaper. And I would also like to have to have more discounts on their services.

Recommendations to others considering the product

That is not easy to have a reliable and trustworthy hosting provider and Hostwinds is such a host which solves a lot of hosting problems and makes your IT life much easier. I also want to say I have never faced any downtime of my web site and network is fully-redundant. Thanks to their quality services, I have become a successful webmaster. Thanks a lot for your unmatched services.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Using their services, I have started to earn more money and I have improved my business immensely. That is important for me.

"Hostwinds support are very friendly and responsive"

What do you like best?

Thanks for the prompt service. My client cannot afford to have a glitch in his email service or to have an issue with the setup, and you were able to flip the switch without the slightest hiccup in my service. AWESOME! Thanks so much, Hostwinds!!

What do you dislike?

Pricing for shared hosting plans is a bit high, so it will be great if Hostwinds reduce their pricing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Hostwinds Tech Support staff are prompt and the best at what you do. Thank you very much as your time, assistance and efforts are very much appreciated.

It happened so that I had an issue with my custom 404 error page loading today and started a chat with one of Hostwinds IT experts. He was able to quickly resolve the problem and seemed happy to do so. He gave updates as to the amount of time it would take to resolve as well as check to ensure I was able to see the page before ending the chat. I just wanted to say thanks and let you know how much I appreciated his help.

"Hostwinds repond quickly, know how to fix problems"

What do you like best?

Really good web host. Thanks a lot hostwinds team for providing me with professional hosting services. I have spent endless hours combing through the various web hosting services online, and am pleased to say that the best one, overall, is the one I started out with! Great hosting package for the price. Site is very professional looking and easy to navigate. I was sold by the combination of the package, the look and feel of your Web site and the online manual.

What do you dislike?

There have been a couple of downtime periods but problems have been rectified quickly. And regular progress reports allow us to keep our clients reliably informed of the situation.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Recommend hostwinds hosting for ROR. The technical support is very nice. I usually get responses within 15 minutes. They also have support for a lot of extra features that many hosts don't – Ruby on Rails in particular. The last reason was cPanel, which I consider the best control panel on the market.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Hostwinds support is what convinced me to go with this decent ssd host I'm still waiting (about 30 days now) for one of their competitors to answer the email questions I posted and the telephone messages I left.

"Lots of features, very knowledgeable fast support"

What do you like best?

I was scared to death to start a website and he made me feel extremely at ease and more confident at starting the process. Hostwinds let me know I can start with a little and build up as I see fit and want to. I honestly have not had better customer service over the phone probably in my lifetime! Because of them, I did not even shop around at any other website or web hosting places. That says a lot because I typically will shop around on most of my purchases. I don't think you can put a price on the comfort and service they give. What a personable and helpful guys! Thanks again and I can't wait to start building my another site!

What do you dislike?

I'm very happy with the choice I made, no complaints. Thanks!

"Being their customer is a bless for me, overall!!! "

What do you like best?

Overall it is really a bless for me to host my site with them because of their unmatched and quality services which contain many useful resources to succeed in the IT industry. Hostwinds is a really good hosting company for anyone who is thinking about starting a website or if you have a website and want to transfer Your Site to this one. They make it (I mean your website transfer to them) for you for free and in a quality way. And unlimited domains sound really good for me.

What do you dislike?

You know their load speed is a bit slow for me but it happens from time to time, not often.

And I would like to have their services cheaper. But they know their work well!

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is the best web hosting service which is very safe, fast, unlimited and have great support. They have many helpful options for beginners in web hosting, like easy way to start and create website. I like them and they way they provide their services for me. Unlimited features in their plans are attractive as well.

And free dedicated IP addresses ... I really like it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

One con to Hostwinds , however, is that the CPanel is a little different from other hosting sites. Overall, Hostwinds is a good hosting company that has serviced which are able to satisfy the demands of many discriminating webmasters all over the IT world.

"Hostwinds are always responsive! A cost-effective hosting service"

What do you like best?

The hosting works great. It has been reliable, reasonably fast PHP and MySQL services. Reasonably easy to configure, etc. I have rarely had to contact the support team for anything and on the occasions when I have they responded immediately with an email from an actual person who resolved my issues right away.

What do you dislike?

Response times are not always quick, especially at weekends, but the overall time to solve a problem is good because they don't waste time asking stupid questions.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Good host. It is a common thing that most hosts do not have knowledge skills on what customers do with their account, but not with Hostwinds. Besides, their network and server uptime are perfect as my site is always online.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With Hostwinds, you don't have to pay a pricey amount to experience quality service, uptime guarantee, and easy to use features and tools.

"I am glad to be the ir customer. "

What do you like best?

I am really glad to be a customer of hostwinds.com company because of their quality and webmaster-friendly services. The prices are not very high especially for starters and I recommend they set the regular prices to that they give in offers. The support is available around the clock and the staff provide courteous and helpful assistance with anything from technical difficulties to help with Wordpress. The billing details make it easy to keep track of spending too. Everything was simple, straightforward, and worked flawlessly right out of the box. Uptime is great. Speed is no issue.

What do you dislike?

I would like to have cheaper prices on their quality services but I do believe they are worth every cent I pay for their services. It goes without saying this company is the best I have ever used.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I do recommend you to use them as they are proven to be the best in this realm. And their services are great!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Hostwinds is a tremendous value for the money. I signed up hesitantly, thinking no reasonably priced site could offer the services and support I needed, but I was wrong. Within a day of sign-up, I received an email from a person who volunteered to help me through the process of getting my site up and running -- though I had already been to the full-featured control panel and worked out all the logistics of moving my site on my own.

"Easy to use. "

What do you like best?

The hosting service and features make my hosting life simple. The chat support had been brilliant. Sometimes I have messed up but the support team had me going again in no more than 15 minutes. I can honestly say I never remember my website being down for a minute. So from my point of view image rocks.

What do you dislike?

I would like to have cheaper services from them but I cannot say they provide expensive plans, at least their plans are affordable for my budget.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I like this web host because it is so easy to use. It saves me a lot of time and that is the reason it is my favorite. I rarely have any problems and if for some reason I do tech support always helps me out quickly.

This host is just so much more user friendly for me. The only thing I think would be better is if you could have a choice of paying monthly or once a year for the hosting. I also am unable to compare them to anyone else because I actually like this host so much that I haven't tried any others.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Great hosting and service

Hostwinds rocks because their support is always helpful and attentive. They resolve an issue and don't quit on you. I use their live chat service for my setup issues and they fixed the problem without a hitch. These guys are great!

"They have been rock solid for me! "

What do you like best?

I have never experienced any downtime with Hostwinds. They have been rock solid for me! No seriously.

I have only had to reach out for assistance 1 time and they were great. They email me in advance several times to let me know when they are doing updates and are very accommodating.

So far, I am very pleased with everything. Support has been responsive and on point. Their technicians would be good for any level of customer, and yes I would recommend them to anyone.

What do you dislike?

To say bad words, one must experience it but I did not! They work well and they know how to make my IT life easier and smoother.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I definitely recommend Hostwinds for professionals who want to start a site on a reliable foundation, and for people ready to improve their small, but established project. They have some pretty great stuff going on. They are running on great technology that allows them to provide super fast, secure, and inexpensive WordPress hosting.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My experience with Hostwinds has been very positive. Now that my site is hosted with them, I have a higher level of confidence and pride when sharing links to my site. I value peoples' time, therefore I only want to present important content. Likewise, I don't want to waste anyone's time waiting for a page to load. Hostwinds hosting is fast and dependable. In addition to performance, they excel with their top-notch admin interface, documentation, and support.

"Hostwinds ssd web hosting is a top of my recommendation"

What do you like best?

Hostwinds uptime is great. Not many features or add-ons for web site (no SQL, at least on my plan, for example). Mail system is superb, with spam controls, webmail and mailing list management about as good as one could want. Their prices are great but not the cheapest. I am also like the speed connection. Believe it is due to their Litespeed server and it is super fast.

What do you dislike?

Their pricing is a bit high comparing with the other hosts, but reliability is great.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just contact them for further details and choose a server which is closer to your website visitors. My sites are online and my visitors are happy. So I am. Recommend them.

"Hostwinds shared hosting service is good"

What do you like best?

Reliability is one of the best things that I'm looking for in a web host. I've tried a number of web hosts who promises to provide this, but I've experienced many of them failed. Finally, I've landed a true to its word reliable web host.

HostWinds is good one. I like their uptime, speed, features and helpful customer support - they work 24/7. There are no hidden charges as well with them. I really like their business web hosting approach and the fact that I can host more than one site on same hosting account.

Recommend these guys.

What do you dislike?

Pricing is a bit high, but the quality is high as well. That's why nothing bad at all.

Recommendations to others considering the product

"Quality and reliable services ... what else should I desire more?! "

What do you like best?

Hostwinds services are reliable and great for me. I have been using epesi application and it works well on my side. This application is compatible with many browsers and Hostwinds makes its work easy and fast.

Their servers have no outages and their pricing policy is simple and everything is understandable for me. When I have a question, I put it and get the answer very fast, I may say even in no time. And it doesn't matter what time it is! And I have never faced the same level of services elsewhere. They have quality tech staff which is skillful and polite and fast and I like all these things much.

What do you dislike?

I can't say many words in terms of disliking as they work perfectly well for me. Maybe prices... I'd like to have hosting services cheaper and it's quite natural for any webmaster as it's a desire of any personal to have quality services cheaply and reliably.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is clear for me that hostwinds is good enough to run websites smoothly and reliably. They know they provide quality services in a webmaster-friendly manner and their support is always helpful around the clock and even at nights and they are a right company for those who are interested in succeeding in the sphere of IT services.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I do believe having a deal with such a reliable and decent hosting provider like Hostwinds, one can be sure his/her IT business is in the firm hands. There are no unexpected things with them. You know your websites have no downtime and network is stable and all works well.
