Happy to leave

Used this company from 2006-2010 and was so happy to leave. I had about 25 websites and didn’t want to go though the move is why i didn’t leave sooner. This is by far one of the worst company i have ever dealt with, not just in hosting but anything.

Servers could be faster

I have used these guys for a while and they worked out okay.

I wish their servers were a little faster and they used a different control panel.
