    Recommend their ssd hosting services.

    I'm pleased to be able to report that it now seems to be working. It has been a long time fixing but, you can not know how elated I am that Hostwinds Customer support folks did. Thanks for taking the time to listen to me, understand my problem and then fixing it! I just needed the right people working on it and they all were that "person." Recommend their ssd hosting services. Thank Hostwinds very much for their support.

    Great talent and technical expertise.

    Hostwinds has a great talent and technical expertise. Support response has always been prompt, courteous, professional, engaging, informative and "Beats all I've ever seen" as my grandmother used to say. COMPLETE confidence in Hostwinds' tech staffing, network hardware, products and platforms.

    Best hosting services.

    Perfect features, quality support, the fast service is what I got with Hostwinds so how can anyone turn down that kind of offer. Best hosting services in my opinion. The prompt and technical reply is their forte. Just try them out like me and feel the happiness of getting the right host for your website. Recommended.

    The service is very reliable.

    I am convinced to have chosen the right solution for my needs. Hostwinds is a nice web host. If you are searching for an uncomplicated registration process, good technology, and friendly staff, then subscribe! The service is very reliable (unlike some other providers I have worked with in the past) which means that I don't have to worry about my websites.

    The support is really fantastic. I have tried so many hosting providers but the support of Hostwinds and also the performance is in another level comparing to other hosting , the support also go through the website issues sometimes and check inside the website configurations if there is anything may effect the server performance. They are amazing indeed.

  10. User avatar
    Happy with Hostwinds hosting service.

    I feel their prices are a little on the high side compared to what bandwidth you get. If you looking for really good service & support, signup with Hostwinds hosting service. Can recommend this host to other webmasters or newbies looking for reliable and professional host.

    They've been very easy to work with.

    I switched to Hostwinds on the advice of a web designer helping me with my book blog. They've been very easy to work with and patient with me when I have questions. I feel their rates are competitive and their service is above board.

  12. User avatar
    I definitely recommend them.

    Their migration team did an excellent job and my first support request was resolved by their first response. I definitely recommend putting in a ticket over the support chat.

  13. User avatar
    The sales and Technical are purely professional!

    I've been working with Hostwinds for a little over a year now and I have to say their customer service is second to none. Every time I have a question or need their assistance I find them to be quick to answer and quick to act. The sales and Technical are purely professional and timely. I hope they continue this way.

  14. User avatar
    Great customer service.

    The service is instant and every query I have had they have answered them super fast. Hostwinds did all the work for me - they offer a free migration service - and, apart from a quick check that everything looked as it should, there was not much for me to do.

  15. User avatar
    It is such an exemplary service.

    Your customer service is simply impeccable and as clients, we feel very much protected, and welcome to ask any question and we are dealt with patience and kindness. It is such an exemplary service.

    Speed connectivity is really fast.

    Highly recommend Hostwinds hosting - Speed connectivity is really fast, so my visitors are happy. I unhesitatingly rate them five stars for support, and four and a half for everything else.

  17. User avatar

    The support chat was very responsive, helpful, and friendly. Once again very pleased with Hostwinds' support.

    No issues with viruses or hackers.

    Sites are always up and run as fast. I host several sites with Hostwinds: e-commerce and Joomla and I have always had prompt, satisfactory answers and solutions. I'm impressed with their support team. Always willing to assist me over and over again with even the smallest request. Have not had one day of trouble from this hosting account, and only contact them to help me set up issues with my domain.

  19. User avatar
    The live chat help system has always been very helpful.

    I usually don't recommend but you should 100% go with Hostwinds web hosting. It is trustworthy. Support is great. They are highly reliable and professional, and, as other reviewers have already pointed out, they provide excellent and fast support. The live chat help system has always been very helpful. Fully Satisfied!

    You know the Agent did everything that was asked of him. Love Hostwinds.

    Actually gave me the answer I needed (this was my fifth attempt at trying to solve this problem). 10/10.

  22. User avatar
    Recommend with no doubt.

    Customer support is knowledgeable and patient to understand the problem and solve it in a quality manner. Recommend with no doubt.

    Have never had my site down.

    They are always very prompt in responding to support questions and never leave you wondering what to do next in case of an issue. Never thought I'd be writing this, but compared to other web-hosting providers, Hostwinds is the best. Have never had my site down. They are constantly improving.

  24. User avatar
    Overall the best experience.

    Excellent customer support and overall the best experience I had since I purchased Hostwinds hosting 2 months ago after reading the reviews here itself by googling. If there are any other problems, they will connect to the client machine through the LogMeIn account and they will fix them.

  25. User avatar
    The best customer service and support I have ever come across.

    They have a very helpful representative, straight to the point, + additional help. Came to Hostwinds for their server speed, found out they have the best customer service and support I have ever come across.

  26. User avatar
    Rock-steady skillful web host.

    In short: Hostwinds is professional, rock-steady, skillful, and also inexpensive. When I first signed up with this web host, I thought the price was reasonable for the service. Every time these folks add another unique feature - this is great. Every time I add or upgrade an account, or walk into a corner that usually gets me an email from the Tech people within an hour, I am thankful.

  27. User avatar
    Each penny I paid for is worth it!

    I love everything they do in general, the cost compared to others is a bit high, but each penny I paid for is worth it!

  28. User avatar
    Really helpful and clear.

    Really helpful and clear. Spent 25 minutes explaining everything I needed to do. Great service with rock-solid servers.

  29. User avatar
    tech customer service is outstanding.

    I've been with many other web hosting providers in the past and the services don't even compare to these guys! Hostwinds tech customer service is outstanding...every time I have ever run into any issues whatsoever, whether it's been issues with my account when I've been past due, and they have been lenient with payments and kept my services on.

  30. User avatar
    Really cool web host!

    Would recommend Hostwinds services to anyone whether you are just starting your first website or run thousands of them. At first, it took me a while to get up and running because I had no clue how to use the vps. Once I got a hang of it, the system is very easy to use and their control panel makes it easy to manage your server.

  31. User avatar
    Really pleased with them.

    Great service, great control panel and sever performance. Really pleased with them and the price is definitely fair for the value they provide. Been using them for a year now. And I plan to stay with them as long as possible.

  32. User avatar
    Your sites will be in good hands.

    One of the best providers for cost per megabyte provided, Hostwinds' reliability and services make it a good value. It will be interesting to see if the services remain acceptable as the provider grows with its success. Your sites will be in good hands.

  33. User avatar
    Fab customer care.

    Fab customer care. Staff are pleasant helpful and efficient. They really go out of their way to solve any issues.

    Amazing tech support.

    Amazing tech support, if all companies were as helpful as Hostwinds, the world would be an easier place to navigate.

  35. User avatar
    I give this web host the best ratings.

    I have used Hostwinds for several months, and they have a very responsive staff. Compounding the issues for me was a new computer and a new operating system that was unfamiliar to me. I immediately needed help in the transition, which was instantly provided by these guys. Recommended!

  36. User avatar
    Cheap hosting option.

    Hostwinds is one of my top recommendations for those who want cheap web hosts – the web host’s price tag is extremely cheap and its server is performing better than average according to my record. Note that I am not saying hostwinds is the best web host, but I do believe it is the best option for those who are looking for a cheap hosting option.

  37. User avatar
    Great Work! Thanks!

    Hostwinds team has answered my questions quickly, accurately and clearly. The website and my email are both working well and I'm glad to say my fears over losing everything were unfounded! The bottom line, Hostwinds SSD hosting is fit for my purpose and can be for yours depending on what you need. Great Work! Thanks!

  38. User avatar
    Excellent as always.

    I have had the pleasure of spending the last hour with a customer service representative, George R., who has gone above and beyond his service to help me understand a problem. Nothing was too much of a problem, nor was I made to feel silly by my questions ( none of the team do this). Hostwinds have perhaps one of the best customers service teams that I have ever dealt wtih.

    Hostwinds is the key to the success!

    I have been using this web hosting provider for more then 3 months and I haven’t had any trouble. I get what I need and pay in time. That is the key to the success! My verdict: professional host with nice prices! This web host was recommended to me as alternative to one huge hosting provider and I decided to shift to them and now I have no regret about that. Now I have my tickets answered within a few minutes, I have no downtime or other problems. I’m happy. Now I know that is better to have small and lovely host like Hostwinds then go with Huge web hosting providers.

    Time and time again, Hostwinds has blown my mind.

    Time and time again, Hostwinds has blown my mind. Their customer support is utterly incredible, my uptime is fantastic and the people don't have to talk to you like robots. They've told me about their personal experience with different products.... even discouraging me from upgrading because they don't think I actually need it.

  42. User avatar
    Hostwinds VPS is reliable.

    When I signed up with Hostwinds VPS, there was a problem with what I was billed... they called me- twice and fixed the problem not in days but in minutes. Then I had another problem soon after I purchased the account, and again customer support fixed the situation in minutes. The customer support team at Hostwinds is simply perfection.

  43. User avatar
    Fast and clear replies. Thanks.

    The support works well. Fast and clear replies come after minutes after sending a ticket. Hostwinds does have a control panel that covers most needs. My site is full asp and I have never lost any data or access problems. When I need help ASAP, I can contact via live chat which also works well. I believe it is one of the best business hosting provider ever. I feel their prices are a little on the high side compared to what bandwidth you get.

  44. User avatar
    Great speed, fast and easy to use.

    It was helpful and kind of support over chat from Hostwinds' team relating to our billing queries. Great speed, fast and easy to use. Support is great and knowledgable and always consistent.

  45. User avatar
    Many thanks and best regards.

    Miranda S, who helped me today, is an example of why I chose Hostwinds and why I recommend them to friends and colleagues. She provided quick, professional, and excellent customer support to solve my directory problem (that I created). I have had occasion to ask for assistance with other problems over the years and every interaction was the same--fast, efficient, courteous, and expert service. Can't ask for much more. Keep up the great work folks! Many thanks and best regards.

  46. User avatar
    Thanks for the great hosting service.

    I am very new at this, but I have to say that this has all been very easy to use thus far - I am very excited. This is my first time developing a web page, and I am very pleased with Hostwinds!!! Thanks again!

    Really super value for money.

    The 1-click wordpress setup was easy and their tutorial videos have been so helpful to us in setting up our site! So much better than my previous host. Really super value for money. If you’re just starting your business online, save time and money by signing up for hostwinds hosting package.

    They do offer a very good price

    I'd like to say that I am glad to have found hostwinds ssd web host. They do offer a very good price and on the half dozen or so times that I have needed to speak to them, including in the middle of the night, there has always been a technically competent support person available immediately.

  54. User avatar
    Fast and reliable.

    Contacted customer service for a delayed annual renewal option and the response was so fast. This calmed me down because I saved my data from being lost. Yes, there renewal options like you can renew monthly in case of being short on cash.

  55. User avatar
    Great uptime and service.

    Have been on them since the end of 2022, and their uptime and service have both been spectacular. Hostwinds pricing seems like a relic of earlier times. I don't know much about the features - I have support people to help me with that.

  56. User avatar
    Solid and reliable compny to sign up.

    I have never regreted my action on moving to Hostwinds as their services are top-notch and unparalleled. Uptime is high and servers are well-balanced.

  57. User avatar
    This web host has been nearly perfect.

    We recently moved two websites to Hostwinds server and could not be more satisfied with our choice. Our websites are obviously mission-critical, which made us nervous about the move. This web host has been nearly perfect.

  58. User avatar
    Patient with me.

    Angela Hansen was very patient with me, as I am a newbie to this. Also very polite and taking her time to explain things and happy to say, it got sorted.

    They are by far the best!

    These guys really know their stuff and I'm glad that I've found this decent provider to host my website. Having been with 5 other hosting services before dealing with hostwinds, I can honestly say they are by far the best!

  60. User avatar
    Skillful support service.

    I had an email issue when I changed my DNS pointer to Hostwinds that create downstream problems for my ExchangeOnline server. The customer support walked me through the resolution and different issues that need to be resolved and I was up and running in 15 min from the time I started chat!

  61. User avatar
    The Help Desk has been fantastic!

    Thank you, Hostwinds! Got various levels of support personnel, so no issues get unresolved. The Help Desk has been fantastic, and I'm not an easy client. (I tend to shoot first and look at the Knowledgebase later.) The Help Desk has been very patient and responsive.

  62. User avatar
    These guys ALWAYS save me.

    These guys ALWAYS save me when I get to the point that nothing is doing what I want it to do. Their tech chat support is one of the reasons why I use Hostwinds. That and the fact that Hostwinds always works.

  63. User avatar
    Very good host, professional!

    My company has been with Hostwinds for 5 months. I needed an exceptional hosting service, because like a lot of small companies today, do their business online for a living. I am no exception and have relied upon the service and technical people here at Hostwinds to help me with options in making my decisions for a continued growth company. Recently within the past 2 days, we have undergone a domain name change, and these guys have seen to it everything worked out the way it was supposed to, and to my satisfaction, including working on minor glitches at night (close to midnight to be exact!).

  64. User avatar
    I'm very comfortable, satisfied!

    I've never run out of bandwidth or space, and my website emails are working great. I'm very comfortable, satisfied, and impressed with Hostwinds web hosting. They reply within hours, and I'm never concerned about my websites because they're almost always up and working. I will continue to be with them.

  65. User avatar
    Polite, good and fast service.

    Thanks Hostwinds!

    I still find Hostwinds to be the best value for me because when I do need support, the support is always stellar! Questions or issues are always answered or resolved... most of the times right away while your on chat. Thanks Hostwinds!

  67. User avatar
    Highly recommendable!

    The best hosting provider I have EVER worked with. The websites work great but what is the best is the customer service. These guys helped me so many times with technical issues that any other provider would just give me a link with a tutorial or charge me extra. The scope of their basic chat assistance is far beyond the standard hosting service. Highly recommendable!

  68. User avatar
    Well-priced web host!

    Having previews and reviews of console games is graphically intensive, but I can say that hostwinds is well and truly fast enough. After a week online I have not had one problem with my site and have been praised by my readers for the amount of speed that the site now downloads at. This is well and truly a magnificent web hosting service.

  69. User avatar
    Love the service!

    Finally, have my website transferred to hostwinds hosting account. Love the service! Have forums running, and a Python-powered Wiki behind the scenes for my own use.. the mail services are fantastic.. the autoresponders and mailing lists especially.

    Great choice of website hosting in the USA

    I'm very glad that I tried Hostwinds website hosting in the USA. I am thrilled with them and they are always very nice even when you lose them. They have many perks. I have used cheaper ones but this is worth it for the price they ask. If you don't use Hostwinds Joomla hosting you are making a mistake!

    Great prices and package deals!

    If you have one or two sites you may well have many years of happy service with this hosting provider, but if your site is for business look elsewhere. I love Hostwinds web host! They have been the best. Great prices and package deals, too.

    Solid and trustworthy web host!

    Guaranteed to give you uptime that is unfailing, I've placed my solid trust in Hostwinds for my web hosting needs. With the tools that they have, I find it very easy to set up my website to my own preference. The servers my site from multiple datacentres and also provide free SSL means of the need of purchasing CDN and SSL.

    Great network uptime!

    Since the time I hosted my website with this really reliable, honest, and competent provider, I have never faced any problems with the network uptime and my site is still online, although about 10 months have already passed. That is to consider the stable work of Hostwinds Sitepad hosting provider.

    Wonderful host.

    I do have a problem, though, and it's a pretty major one for anyone who has multiple sites/packages under one account. Hostwinds pricing is great, they have free templates, tutorials, everything. Wonderful host.

    Keep it up.

    The best customer service I received from any company on the web. Hostwinds support is quick to respond and is very helpful to the tiniest details. Keep it up.

  84. User avatar
    Keep up the good work, thanks!

    Somehow I have got convinced that Hostwinds is one of the best hosts in the business out there. I've been with them for two years now and thus feel that my conviction is supported by some real-time experience as well. These guys tolerate my things and sometimes I think I am asking so many things though paying very few bucks.

  85. User avatar
    Absolutely 100% recommend!!

    The customer service is absolutely amazing. I run a small business that buys and sells websites and requires a lot of technical support. I am pretty useless, but the staff are so amazingly helpful. I've easily had hours of support including with my hosting fees. I can't be more positive about these guys. Absolutely 100% recommend!!

  86. User avatar
    They are very reliable, responsive and efficient.

    They are very reliable, responsive and efficient. Each time I encounter any issue, they are ready to provide a valid solution to the problem, even going as far as volunteering to review and fix the issues for you by themselves, without you doing anything. Just wait for couple minutes for your issues to be resolved.

  87. User avatar
    I highly recommend Hostwinds hosting!

    My website now has 99% uptime, and there is never any problem reaching customer service if I have a problem. I tried my previous host because they offered a great promotional rate, but after the first three months, my monthly fees almost tripled. With Hostwinds hosting, I get a great rate, and I never have to worry about surprises. Recommended.

  88. User avatar
    I would definitely recommend.

    I've been having issues with many provider until I found this one. First great surprise : Everything you see on their website is true, real, not sugarcoated. Second great surprise : Their customer support is incredibly efficient. And third great surprise : The websites load fast, and are reliable. I would definitely recommend.

  89. User avatar
    Thanks for taking such good care of your clients.

    Once again Hostwinds has lived up to its reputation for being a friendly, helpful, and professional outfit. Having started to set up an account late in the day yesterday having a site setup with SQL and pages all configured within 3 hours is just brilliant. We were recommended to Hostwinds and haven't looked back. will recommend. Thanks

    I'm fully impressed with the hosting speed!

    I started with Hostwinds shared package and I am now on a business hosting account I have been on every plan that is offered by this professional web host and I upgraded when I was ready to. The databases and CMS work great. The tech support is qualified and always willing to help. Their web hosting service is much faster than the one I had been dealing with before.

    Wonderful hosting service!

    Great hosting provider. I switched to Hostwinds hosting from a previous host and they were able to handle all the transition easily, even going so far as to transfer all of our Cpanel sites for us. Highly recommended. Their system enabled us to get an eCommerce site up and running quickly and easily. The site still serves us well to this day.

    So far, I have not had any problems with them. Good service. Hostwinds is a great web host. I have a good experience with this hosting service! I really appreciated the website's help! If my business grows, I'll just switch over to dedicated hosting. Hostwinds is TOP web host.

    Good Web Host!

    I am fully satisfied using Hostwinds service. They answer your actual question and don't feed a bunch of garbage pre-canned responses to you, it feels genuine and real because it is as opposed to feeling like you are talking to a machine or someone reading from a teleprompter. Google apps and Gmail is working absolutely fine.

    This web host gets 5 stars from us!

    I like Hostwinds hosting service, they do good services and have good support. I like this decent web host, and I'm happy. My own research into the problems indicated a server issue, but they would not acknowledge it.

    5 stars absolutely deserved.

    I really recommend Hostwinds. Customer service is impeccable, always friendly and willing to help you. 5 stars absolutely deserved.

    Very good speed hosting!

    I can't put into words how brilliant the control panel and support services are which Hostwinds have, and as I have seen with many other customers, I've also been a beneficiary of EXTREMELY quick responses to my requests. Today they installed a Python module for me half an hour or something after I requested. Brilliant company, I will be recommending Hostwinds to everyone interested in web hosting to save them time in researching and money via choosing an inferior company (i.e. any other company besides Hostwinds). Thanks, Guys

    Glad to have chosen Hostwinds

    I started my website after buying one from another host and never could figure out how to make it work. Hostwinds has the best customer service ever. I have had no problem with my site and just love how easy it is to make changes and add products. They are #1 in service, value, and attitude.

    Great uptime, nothing problematic to report

    I've had a good experience with Hostwinds web host, so far. It's good to know that my website is being hosted by an environmentally-conscious web hosting provider. I couldn't have done it without the support team, their replies were quick and the instructions were easy to follow, which made it possible for even a non-techie like me to do.

    You did a very, very good job. Thanks very much.

    I was having big trouble uploading photo and wrote this to Hostwinds' support team. I got the first reply within minutes. The problem wasn't that easy to solve, but the team at Hostwinds didn't stop working on it until the problem was fixed. The second positive experience was the communication. A single point of contact, very competent and friendly. You did a very, very good job. Thanks very much.

    It's great! The pricing is very good

    Starting with Hostwinds VPS hosting, no problems, and they come highly recommended by my friends. I've upgraded my hosting package and began hosting the video and other multimedia content. They provide outstanding and prompt help. Thanks.

    The price is extremely competitive

    I've been with hostwinds for several years and they've never let me down: The prices are extremely competitive, and their servers are fast and reliable. When our website reached its limits, the customer support was extremely helpful by moving the entire site including databases and cron jobs to a new clustered hosting solution. Great service!

    Fast and reliable hosting provider.

    Good web hosting for Drupal

    With Hostwinds Drupal hosting I have always had customer service that is above and beyond what I had previously had with several other hosts. I am always impressed with their price. Time is money and even 99.99% may not be good enough. You will not be disappointed. I really appreciate all the work they did for me and wanna thank them.

    Very good hosting provider

    This is a short review to bring to your attention the excellent job Hostwinds team did on solving the phpBB database connection issues I had. They managed to get my database up and running again quickly. And they took over and managed to re-install and re-create a phpBB database for me for future use. They were both very helpful, quick, and efficient.

    I recommend Hostwinds website hosting

    During the time I have been dealing with hostwinds WordPress hosting provider, server and network uptime are pretty great. Customer service is quick and perfect! The technical support is very nice. I usually get responses within 15 minutes. My sites are in good hands and I am happy. Double thumbs up!

  118. User avatar
    Good service!

    It is very hard to find a good and reliable hosting provider. Some web hosts offer a cheaper service, but their results are such that they can destroy your business. To everybody I know who has a website, I suggest they give Hostwinds web hosting a try. Keep up a great job!

  119. User avatar
    Tech support care is perfect!

    I would just like to say that in all the many years I have had a business online I have never experienced such helpful and proficient support as I have experienced with Hostwinds these few months. You guys really have gone beyond the call of duty with support for my server and I want you to know that it is much appreciated. Thanks again so very much.

    I am happy with this host

    For the money, it is a great service. It is not for anyone being serious about Hostwinds SSD hosting, especially if it should be used for business or for a large number of visitors. Now I run my site and am happy. Support is available 24/7 and you can contact them any time you need.

  123. User avatar
    Steady so, guys!

    Switched to hostwinds website hosting after having enough of the downtime with my old hosts. From the time with them, I have nothing but high praise indeed. There has never been a single request that I have made and is left unanswered. The service itself works like a Swiss watch. That is a really good provider and really good service.

  124. User avatar
    Perfect company.

    Have to say it again and again. Have all my customers transfered to Hostwinds , 'cause the service and support is perfect!

    Well done!

    During the time I have been dealing with hostwinds hosting in the USA: server and network uptime is pretty great. There are loads of bolt-on extras, most of them are free and the freedom to customize whatever you want including forums. I am satisfied using their web hosting services.

  126. User avatar
    Cheap and reliable provider.

    I'm with Hostwinds for the last 4 years. Their shared hosting packages are the best and the cheapest packages in the market. Well, I can say the same for the VPS and dedicated servers.

    Fast speed, thanks

    I am happy to deal with Hostwinds web hosting provider. The website care plan and website maintenance are impressive. Plenty of bandwidth & disk space. Far more than we've used. They will offer solutions if they already have them prepared. Good job.

    Fast speed and good network uptime

    Really good job, Hostwinds team, thanks. When my friend had problems setting up the domain name servers, the support center was very helpful. It is also fast and friendly and always has a solution. Server performance is top and very little unscheduled downtime. All in all, a good place for hosting any website and keep it always up and accessible to visitors. Recommended.

    Great pricing and their customer service is second to none.

    I've worked with Hostwinds for almost 5 years, they have great pricing and their customer service is second to none. When I ask a question, they always respond quickly. They are always kind and courteous, professional and are extremely knowledgeable. Hostwinds fan for life!

    Happy customer

    Hostwinds is cool. Support is usually great, my only complaint being that the original average support response time of 10 minutes is now more like 30 minutes. This is to be expected with the kind of growth they've experienced, however.

  132. User avatar
    Thanks a lot for your help.

    Good cPanel web host

    Keep in mind that this is not a reseller host. Also, when they say that you can host multiple domains under some plans, that is more akin to multiple subdomains in the way that they are configured. I've used several hosts in the past and Hostwinds has exceeded my expectations! You will not get separate Cpanel accounts.

  135. User avatar
    We have been so happy with Hostwinds.

    We have been so happy with Hostwinds. The customer service that they provides far exceeds our past service provider (where I also paid double the price for monthly service!). As soon as anything goes wrong, or isn’t working right, we know we can easily get it fixed with their help and quick response .

    Hostwinds hosting is good

    I've been with Hostwinds for a year now after a friend of mine recommended them when I was complaining about my Web Host. While they are a bit pricier than the host I was coming from, they have more than earned the extra couple of dollars a month. Customer support always answers my questions with helpful explanations and good recommendations on what to do next if the problem exists. It is a great web host!

  137. User avatar
    Very good tech support care!

    I am a novice and I just have to say that today, putting my first Web pages up on your service, I had about the first computer pleasure I have encountered. Hostwinds service worked like a dream... The end of it worked unbelievably well. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for thinking of the non-geek user. I will be a devoted customer for life and would happily pay extra for this kind of service, even after the fact.

    Solid and stable servers!

    I have been running my server here for a year or two, and it has always run smoothly. The only time I've had problems with my server was when my payment ran twice. I don't know how this happened, but Lucas from customer service solved it perfectly. I would recommend everyone to host here, it always goes smoothly, communication is good and the servers are very stable.

  141. User avatar
    Well done!

    I just can't say enough about their products and services. Hostwinds does an excellent job of designing and hosting a website. They are always courteous and someone is readily available to answer questions or help with any changes in keeping your website current and up to date.

    Great web host!

    Very good service, matt was particularly helpful one weekend when migrating from another host to Hostwinds brand. The guys have been very helpful in answering my silly questions recently re PHP, databases and CMS! The servers are incredibly fast, uptime is near perfect, and my favorite part of Hostwinds is knowledgeable support.

  152. User avatar
    Professional web hosting!

    I've been with hostwinds SSD cloud hosting for several months, I have also dealt with many other hosting providers and I must say the hostwinds is the best I have come across as their support is extremely good and they really know what they are talking about. A massively refreshing change to hosting. Real people who bend over backward to help as much as they can.

    Reliable web hosting provider

    These guys are just plain ole awesome! Hostwinds hosting is beyond excellent. They know what they are doing. The response times are lightning fast (the longest I have had to wait for a response to a ticked question was just over 1 hour - which is more than acceptable, seeing as other bigger hosts can take 3-7 days to reply). Thanks.

    Cheap hosting for all websites

    I’m selling music from my site. When I started the search for the web hosting plan I did not have a huge budget and most people recommended me to use only VPS. But I decided to go with Hostwinds Personal Plan and I dare say I won a prize! Now I have a low-cost web hosting service, a fast server, and 99.9% uptime. For me, that is more and enough!

  156. User avatar
    I cannot ask for more.

    Hostwinds has very good hosting server capabilities, they have provided great services again and again, around the clock. They have skillful customer service, full-featured plans, high uptime. I cannot ask for more.

    The team are great.

    I'm new to web sites (I suppose I'm a network numpty) I had a few issues setting up some of the basics, the support team backup was second to none and fast! So if like me you were born in the analogue age go for Hostwinds. I'm sure they will be screening my calls soon to avoid some more of the stupid questions I'm sure I'll ask. But in summary, the team are great.

    Great work, thanks HostWinds

    Anytime I have a question, big or small, I call tech support because I know they will be able to answer the question. Everything Hostwinds does is in a very timely fashion (few hours tops) and they always let you know they finished.

    Support and assistance is always prompt

    Easy to work with the base Webmin system; no weird gotchas. Hostwinds is the host you can rely on in any situation. It provides tools to help identify the cause and to arrive at a solution. Support so far is quite good.

    Everything works fine

    The main advantage of using hostwinds web hosting service is that I have never had real problems to solve, or if there appeared some problems, well-trained support staff always assisted me to get rid of them. If you are thinking about switching, this is the host to go with.

    Great service, I am happy!

    Not only is the service Top Notch, but I was blown away by all the features in the control panel and the storage/bandwidth I get for the price. I shopped for months and could not find a better deal. Hostwinds takes monthly no-contract PayPal payments! Highly recommend their hosting solutions.

    I’ve had only positive experiences.

    For the number of years I’ve been using Hostwinds, I’ve had only positive experiences. Granted, I tend to be pretty self-proficient for managing my site, but whenever an issue has popped up, they’ve been quick at giving me an answer. Good work for me.

    Best value for a developer's site hosting!

    I must say that Hostwinds provider is a reliable place to order web hosting plans, their cPanel makes life easier for website owners offering nice tools to help me to perform tasks easily and reliably. When I need support, it is quick and takes care of the issue with no attitude. I am not an IT guy so this is important to me.

    you really feel like you're not alone when you're dealing with the team at Hostwinds.

    Without question, my experiences with Hostwinds have set a new standard of quality for Service and Support, and the speed and reliability of their hosting has been great. A particular shout-out to Ben who responded to me within minutes of my request today, and helped me sort out an issue with a domain transfer that I wanted to make as I migrate all my sites to Hostwinds. Really brilliant service all the way around - you really feel like you're not alone when you're dealing with the team at Hostwinds.

    Very good service & support

    I am extremely impressed with the technical support and uptime of Hostwinds hosting services. Been with them for 3 months, yet they haven't told us anything about moving to the latest MySQL. What I mean here is that they let you know early and let you prepare for it first.

    Big Respect to Hostwinds hosting provider

    Now everything works fine with this SSD host. Never had to wait more than thirty minutes for technical help. I've encountered a few small hick-ups in the last ten months but in fact, I haven't encountered any problems during the last four months. Will recommend Hostwinds hosting to all people on the web.

    It's GREAT.

    I have decided to have a deal with hostwinds. No ads and no stupid gimmicks and no weird price jumps for no reason. Just when things look a bit old and outdated, they update it. When I encounter problems, I get instant support. It's GREAT.

    very good customer support care

    A Big Thank, Hostwinds staff! So easy to use. No requirements to know HTML. Helpful and friendly customer service too (via tickets or MSN). They still have very cheap pricing and I like it. They pass on the savings to me. The speed connectivity of my sites is nice... I have only positive feedbacks from my visitors about the work of my site.

    Good tech support (24/7 work)

    The incredible customer support is what keeps me with Hostwinds hosting. Their team is professional. If there is any other problem, they will connect to the client machine through the LogMeIn account and they will fix it. So I am still very happy with them.

    Will use them.

    Due to coronavirus I had to close my bar so the website was useless. However they auto renewed my website+domain so I contacted them to get my money back as the bar was closed and they proceeded to send the money and were very useful. If I need quality hosting services, I will use them!

    The best part is their support team is always available to help you out.

    Most of my clients are eCommerce businesses. Installing and managing WooCommerce and WordPress couldn't be any easier. The best part is their support team is always available to help you out. Some of my clients prefer Magento or Prestoshop, both are available for install from the cPanel.

    Good service, great value

    In total I love Hostwinds service, it was really easy to pick up and start using. All the features and freebies have been really good and I looking forward to using them for years to come.

    I am fully-satisfied with Hostwinds service

    I have used a few hosts in the past but Hostwinds is by far the best. No hidden fees or surprises, very reliable service. Pricing is excellent and almost everything was ok for the last 6 months. The tech support people are courteous and prompt and informative. The online chat facility has been very good from a customer service point of view, and they are very helpful when it comes to getting your own website up and running.

    Excellent provider!

    Hostwinds is an excellent provider by many means. First of all they have the best pricing as for me for shared hosting services. They still use Cpanel and Softaculos (most providers stop using that great control panel)! 3 locations : 2 within USA and 1 in Europe. Live chat support always ready to help. No headache - they just work!

    👍 Pros:    Price|Great customer support|Server locations
