I am so happy that I chose Glowhost hosting for my wordpress site 8 months ago. Pricing is cheaper than I was paying to my pr...展开
evious host. Also discounts saved much money for me. We have seen the addition of more and more servers to keep up with demand. They are always responsive, cost-effective, and we virtually never suffer any down time. Time is money and even 99.99% may not be good enough.

your purchase?? I guarantee you this is not what 1&1 stands for. They are cheats. If you do not check every bill they charge you for, you will discover too late that they are over charging you. And when asked, they will inform you, that you only have 8 weeks to report it. EX. You have a contract that stated you pay for the router for 2 years and then its yours. At 1&1 they do not automatically stop collecting the router charge after 2 yrs, unless u call them. Even after calling, they inform you, that you have to tell them to cancel it, otherwise they don't. When you tell them to cancel it, they tell you that they will have to put you in a new binding contract for 2 more extra years. And when you refuse, they say you have to stay in that old contract and pay the 5 extra euros. A more stupid system, I have not encountered. They seem cheaper and perhaps are cheaper than other providers, for that you get rude customer service, rules that make no sense and best believe they will try to charge you and take more money every chance they get. Run away. 1&1 is horrible!!!
And if you are about to get in it... please read the fine print!! The smaller the letters, the more important the message!
I chose Glowhost because they offered Shoutcast and web hosting in one package. Directly after ordering, I noted that my enti...展开
re control panel was in Chinese. I then had to work with support for hours before my site could be published, and was asked to scan and send copies of government issued identification. My Shoutcast server went down on the second day, requiring me to contact support a second time. My streaming specifications were also not as advertised, which I had to contact support to resolve. When it came to building my website, I would have liked to have seen more tools to create a professional looking site. Ultimately, I decided to find a more trustworthy host that could provide better tools to actually build my website. When I tried to invoke Glowhost's Money Back Satisfaction Guarantee, I was told that I'd be charged for my domain name that was originally offered for free, and that the charge would come out of my hosting refund. I was sent links to terms and conditions that differed from what I'd already read. After mentioning my intentions of sharing my experiences, I was then told that they could offer me the full refund as an "exception." I replied that I had no intention of withholding details of my experience, and the offer was revoked. In short, Glowhost was not for me. I felt misled by the Satisfaction Guarantee and was dissatisfied in the amount of issues that arose within my first week alone. For anyone looking for web hosting services, Glowhost has timely technical support but was far from pain free for me and abides by the same fine print any cheaper, more popular, professional, and easier to use host does as well.
