Which Hosting Companies Do You HATE?

by Terry Kyle 69 replies
We use a bunch of hosting companies around the world - some are appalling, some are OK, most are mediocre.

As we're about to get a lot more new hosting for various projects, which ones have you personally used and had terrible experiences with (so that we can avoid them)?

Thanks in advance.

    +1 for Namecheap indeed,

    About Hostgator, maybe it's cause it's the host where my personal seo website is hosted, and I don't browse that site every day but in the times I did it has been 5 times offline already due to temporarily bugs or maintenance. Maybe I'm just unlucky.

      Nik, I have had only bad experience with them since they got acquired so add me to this list of hostgator naysayers.

    Do namecheap still have that manual approval process for a site that can take up to 12 hours?

    HG's performance in 2013 hasn't been great.

      I really like HG but they are the most glorified resellers on the planet (now known as Softlayer).

      With HG, one is paying for great customer service and Softlayers servers are also top-notch!

    I've never had an issue with GoDaddy for domain purchasing - and yes another +1 for HostGator for their response and support.

    HG are very quick to respond to me when I have an issue with a domain.

      My Worst host of all time goes to Ninja Lion.

      servers went off line for days at a time SEVERAL TIMES and so did all ticket responses (in fact don't think they EVER answered a ticket) but the bill kept still coming. They are a sister site to Downtownhost which I would avoid like a plague also

      Best all time host ever now only offers VPS but if you need a high performance service its Knownhost.

    I've always liked bluehost but this last month they have been phenomenally terrible. I've had about enough

    I don't like bluehost. For me, HostGator is the best!
