While Hostwinds wasn't the cheapest plan I looked at, they were recommended by a colleague some time ago and I haven't looked back. I now host more than 2 websites with them! They're secure, reliable, and their customer service is second-to-none. You get even more than what you pay for. What re-sold me, most recently, was that when I switched from HTML to Wordpress CMS on my personal website. The features Hostwinds has (aiding with directory set-up, etc) made the transition fast and easy to understand for someone with only basic WP knowledge. Thanks, Hostwinds!
Their servers work a bit slow and I would like to them to work faster but overall I like them.
I recommend them to anyone in the It industry.
Their hosting packages are packed with many features and are VERY reasonably priced. They have always notified me about a week ahead of time when they are doing maintenance and the down time is about 10 minutes. They have been going through growing pains the last year or so which has injected a few glitches here and there, but they work hard to get them fixed ASAP. They did have a serious accident causing many of their servers to crash, but they did an excellent job of getting everything restored back to normal in a short time. Their tech assistance is excellent and they give you the time you need to ask questions and/or deal with learning their system. I highly recommend Hostwinds to anyone.
