My account has more than doubled in size since I signed up with them. Thankfully I’ve discovered Hostwinds web hosting solutions.

ZeroLag provides the infrastructure and reliability of the hosting giants, but the personal service and support of a friend. We know many of the support engineers by name and the one thing we can always count on is a prompt and friendly response.

Dislike due to confusing, baseless, untrue and unrecognizable statement without reference to evidence of detailed refund information.

Consultant in Internet

We offered solution ideas to some inquires and received incomplete responses that ended up costing us an entire day for each back and forth. As an example: We submitted a ticket saying, "the firewall is blocking our IP. Please whitelist xxx.xxx.x.x"...
