Hosting Companies

How happy are you with your current hosting company?
  • Are you satisfied with the tools and services they provide?
  • Are their representatives courteous and knowledgeable?
  • Do they promptly resolve your problems?
  • Are they up 99.9% of the time?

Or, is your hosting company infamous for:

  • Poor to non-existent customer support?
  • An inability to resolve problems in a timely fashion?
  • Limited communication with their customers?
  • Unreliable service?

Have you ever become so dissatisfied with your hosting company that you’ve ever thought about or actually made a switch?

Today is your chance to share your thoughts on and experiences with hosting companies! The official questions are below, but as always, feel free to discuss anything relevant to today’s topic!

Questions

1. Are you satisfied with your current hosting company? Why or why not?

2. Have you ever changed hosting companies (or are you thinking about doing so?) Please share that experience with us!

Thank you so much for participating! As always, my readers and I look forward to your responses!

    I am VERY happy with my hosting company – I switched over to them about 10 years ago and have recommended them to all my web design clients, too. The hosting company I had was terrible – they kept raising their hosting fees every year, and were unreliable. The one I have now has been phenomenal – and after doing tons of research (10 years ago and periodically since, just in case) they were and are the cheapest I've found for what you get, and have only had a server issue twice in 10 years – which only lasted a few hours because they were right on top of it immediately. Anyone I've talked to over there has been ultra courteous and helpful. In addition to that, the annual fee I pay has been exactly the same for 10 years running. 🙂

    I am happy with what I have, it's simple and doesn't require a lot of follow-up. There are limitations but it is not a priority to switch right now. Sounds like Stacy has the dream host, I will have to ask her in more details when I am ready for more responsibilities. 🙂

  3. The Paper Princess says:

    Wow, Stacy, I didn't know you did web design!

    When you have a moment, could you please share your GOOD hosting company with us? I know this would be great for those of us in need! 🙂

  4. Adelina R says:

    I love mine. I've been with them for almost three years and have never had a problem. They are reasonably priced too! Found you on the Alexa hop.

  5. Michelle says:

    Yes Stacy, please share. I'm looking for a company that still allows outside advertising on the website. It looks like a lot of them insert advertising into your web page to keep the cost of their web-hosting down. I'd still like to be able to do Google Adsense or something like it. Any suggestions?

    Oh! And thanks for stopping by the S&R weekend hop Paper Princess!!

  7. Mama Chocolate says:

    I haven't really used mine much yet. I've had my domain and the hosting set up for a few months, but I haven't got my blog switched over yet, so I haven't had to deal with them yet.

    Stopping by with my Alexa toolbar!

    I am still very new to all this. I am just on Blogger right now but as my blog grows I would like to switch over to something better. As of right now, I cannot justify the expense of hosting and all that. But I am wanting to hear what others say so I know what to do when the time comes. 🙂

    I was initially with BlueHost then Media Temple and now with DSW. I guess they're okay. I have no complaints.

  12. Running, Loving, Living says:

  19. shah says:

    I'm with Blogger who are pants!! But I can't justify paying for a better one. It's not like I earn money from it – If it was a business I'd consider it. When I've finished my book I'll build a new website for that and might use a better host. But i'd see that as a business – my blog now is a hobby. I have no idea which I'd choose though.

    I am happy overall with my hosting company however I do notice that a few weeks ago it his a snag and was down for about four hours. That was not cool at all!

    I just use Blogger for hosting, but pay for a domain name. Its not perfect, but for the price of free its hard to beat.

    Another thoughtful and thought provoking link for Alphabe-Thursday!

    I like the hosting service for my personal website and chatroom. I'm not thrilled at the moment with blogger, but, hey, you get what you pay for.

    Thanks for linking up.

    A+
