If like me, the constant Wordpress updates and login attempts are driving you insane then I strongly recommend switching to 3...展开
4SP. I have found both their support and hosting to be first class! It's great to know I have a team of Wordpress experts behind me to support me as I continue to launch more and more sites. Over time I am recommending all my customers move their sites over, it really is a no brainer! Thanks 34SP, awesome!
Really appreciate your help in setting up my new account and for answering all of my complex questions thoroughly. Happy I chose you in the end.
We had the same bad experience described below. The support staff seem to be on autopilot and nobody takes responsibility. Ev...展开
en when we brought the problem to the attention of the Director, it was completely dismissed and passed right back down to the same support staff for more slow, obtuse questions. The technical faults were disappointing - being left waiting for 3 weeks without email is not acceptable - but the way it was handled, with constant attempts to blame us and wriggle out of dealing with it, was truly appalling. We ended up having to move all our sites to another host in the middle of a very inconvenient time - we were just getting nowhere with 34SP. They used to be very good, and we often recommended them to others over the years, but prices went up and service quality went down. Now they have completely lost their way. Best avoided.
Can't be summarised any better than this:
"Constant technical issues and the engineers take days to get back to you. They never concede that anything is their fault when it always is. No-one takes responsibility for anything and complaints just get moved about and nothing is resolved. I would not recommend them to anyone."
One of their support agents changed by mistake the setup of a website that was not on my account. Their support agents do not...展开
even understand how a robots.txt work (basic sysadmin knowledge) because they set an allow rule to an user agent that had not been disallowed in any previous rule on the robots file. Also, the other day, from another chemicloud account from one of my clients, a support agent on the chat was asking me on the chat how can she check the server response of a page. Another case of an agent lacking basic sysadmin knowledge.
This is not a problem specific to the agent that breaks basic hosting management protocols or the other support agent that didn't know how to use the chrome inspector, both cases are just a signal of how unsustainably is chemicloud escalating its growth. They are not investing enough in support service and this is what will end up breaking up everything. Not the inflated prices compared to competitors, its the terrible support service, because that was the only added value from this company in comparison to the competitors and it used to be brilliant 2 years ago when I came, and I recommended every client to do so. Not anymore, I'm leaving and my clients are leaving.
