Had to deploy a wordpress site recently and did not want to deal with setting up all underlying webservers and php versions

I have been with Nexcess for many years. I host my sites and my client's sites with Nexcess. They are reliable and customer service is fast. I use them for Magento and WordPress.

Chuanyui T.
Administrator in Computer Software

Very limited documentation, had to look at some blogs to learn to deploy a simple Node app. The networking speed is frequently dropping too for no reasons. Supports team will only issue your ticket and not giving any help.

Nexcess
Joshua A.
User in Retail

Nexcess organizes their policies around getting more money out of you, not providing a good service.
