One.com is one of the more popular web hosts in Europe. I’ve been curious about them since early 2013 and I’ve been checking them out quite frequently since then. Their prices are a bargain and it seemed like their plans are perfect for small sites, so I finally decided to try them out last October 2013. Unfortunately, the quality of their service that I experienced was nowhere near what they promised!
Let’s cut to the chase. JustHost sucks. That’s kinda expected because they are an EIG company, but I didn’t expect they’d be a whole lot worse than their sister companies (e.g., Bluehost, HostGator). I’ve had a client with them and for half a year, we’ve had nothing but trouble.
GoDaddy has been around for many years, but up until now I don’t understand why they can’t stick to offering just domain registrations. Recently, they’ve been exerting effort into “improving” their services and that’s nice, but it’s not enough to keep me and my clients with them.
I signed up for A Small Orange last November 2013 mainly to try and experiment with a self-hosted Ghost blog. ASO delivered well in this regard, although there are some important aspects that they need to improve on.
I’ve technically been with HostGator for at least 3 years and I manage different types of accounts with them. HG was good the past few years but the quality of their service has declined recently. They’ve deteriorated so much that I’m currently in the process of helping at least 10 of my clients transfer to another host.
I’ve heard of Site5 many times but it’s only this year that I decided to try them out. To be honest, I was reluctant in signing up because I knew they were a bigger company than most hosts I’ve used. In my experience, most big companies tend to be less inclined in providing quality service and I thought Site5 was no exception. I was wrong.
Last year, I signed up for Bluehost mainly because they had a nice Black Friday deal. At that time I needed a host for one of my new projects so I thought it was the perfect opportunity to try Bluehost! Unfortunately things didn’t go so well — I figured that they overload their servers and their support team definitely sucks.
I’ve been building websites on and off since 2006, and through the years I’ve jumped from one web host to another to find one that fits my needs the most. I stumbled upon DowntownHost in late 2007 and I’ve hosted several sites with them since then.
I signed up with CrocWeb two months ago because I have Canadian clients who want their websites hosted on a Canadian server. Overall, my experience with them has been great. I am happy with my reseller account but I can’t deny the fact that there are areas where CrocWeb could use some improvement.
MochaHost is a web host that likes to brag about their “awards” and “guarantees” on almost every page of their website. Unfortunately, all of these things are just for show. Their service is ridiculously bad and they have some of the most incompetent support staff in this industry.
