Speed, security and customer service. Working with AWS is a dream come true.

Tyler J.
Administrator in Industrial Automation

The support provided for Magento is the best out there. I have worked with a dozen or so hosts and none of them provide the in depth knowledge of the platform and how it interacts with the server.

Not sure how it really works. Pricing seems to continue to increase, not sure why.

User in Retail

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