I have been with myhosting for 5 years and they have been good until recently. They seem to have outsourced customer support because they don’t seem to understand my problems unlike before. They give me conflicting solutions which mix up everything whether it is on wordpress, billing or any technical matter. All this takes lots of phone calls and sending several emails. In return they send automated replies saying they will get back to me but they don’t.
They changed my domain to the wrong address and instead of acting fast to correct the situation they kept apologizing and saying they will fix things up. My website has been offline because of this reason. There was also a time they billed me for $24.95 instead of $15.95 but when I pointed this out to them, they upgraded my account to a more expensive plan without my permission. I am through part of my term and I have 5 months remaining but I have decided to leave them.posted by Jade Tuesday, 08 January 2013 01:23 Comment Link
Myhosting services have been easy to use. I have both Linux VPS hosting and Windows VPS hosting to ensure that I have all that I need. The price for Linux VPS is low and hard to beat. You will not find such fair prices elsewhere.
This company used to be a reputable hosting provider but not anymore. At the start, the support team was helpful but these days they are horrible. They keep you waiting for 3-5 hours and the answer you get is unrelated to what you asked. The call center has been moved offshore and I don’t understand what they are saying. I have been experiencing downtimes so there is nothing like 100% uptime. I have been losing customers every time my site is inaccessible which is bad. When I talk to customer support they give generalized answers and the problem is not solved.
The VPS server is very slow and loading files takes too long. The server seems to be overloaded most of the times. I had paid for a 1 year term but when I asked for a refund after using the service for one-and-a-half months, they said the 30-day money guarantee had been over.posted by Katie Thursday, 02 August 2012 11:36 Comment Link
