I accidentally deleted my entire website (my fault), and my backups weren't working properly, but they managed to provide a b...展开
ackup and support within record time. Saved me from a panic attack. Truly appreciate that! Some cons: a bit slower than my previous BlueHost, but definitely far less expensive. Also uses the latest MySQL on VPS only, not shared hosting.
I've been a client of HostPapa for almost 10 years. This is just for my personal use. It has hosted my website which includes...展开
many of the popular content management systems and photo galleries. In all those years I can only remember one time when they were "down". A few times I've had to contact them for help and their online chat is very responsive and helpful. Each time it was a human - me - error.
I also and the techie for 2 other sites on HostPapa for a musician friend. It shares some of their music.
Since I've been using this hosting I've had a lot of problems with resource allocation to my site, a lot of errors regarding ...展开
caching and connection to database even in moments when user count is at it's lowest, it seems like those errors are in the moments when their US based company has the highest user connections. After one such crash I wasn't able to get my backup because they do not make full backups and afterwards suggested me to pay for it extra or do it manually. It seems that business shared plan is as overloaded as they basic shared plans.
And now they just terminated my websites and asked for me to join cloudflare, to point my DNS there so i can reduce the load of my page because they are saying that my page has made a big impact on their servers even though they can't provide me logs with data that could prove that and I haven't received any warnings regarding high load. My website is now offline for 3 days. I have to wait for CloudFlare support because I cannot change DNS myself there. So I have no clue for how long time my sites will be offline. Support doesn't respond to my questions regarding refunds of lost time and they just force me to register at CloudFlare and say that if I don't do that my site will be removed. I think that since Arvixe is a partner of CloudFlare this is just a scam to get more customers to CloudFlare. Because I've been running my script for 8 years on multiple hostings and never had a such problem with high loads.
I was totally duped into going with these guys being that they're Canadian. I signed up paid more money that I did for my sig...展开
ht on webs only to find out there are no tools to help you Market your website you have to pay for everything listing on search engines optimization tools stats all those things only come when you pay extra. I ended up going back to webs of which by the way you certainly can get a. CA website and those things already come with it. Nice and simple pay once get everything you want. Every time I asked for help on this one the answer was the same everything I asked for cost extra what a waste of my time building a site either way make your own decisions but be prepared to pay extra again and again and again
