emicloud help you out with all they got. And they also respond very quickly. I have used other premium providers, some were horrible with queues of hours. Not here. Also the chat which is the first line of help are very skillful. I had this problem for days, we all tried to figure out the problem. And then there was a super woman named Micha. She teamplayed together with me. And finally had the golden solution. This is very valuable. I almost never write reviews but Micha made me very happy, so she deserves the shine.
I started using SingleHop hosting in 2014. At some point it was acquired by INAP and I recently upgraded my server through IN...展开
AP. I really like the fact that when I need support I can get a human technician on the phone very quickly. And my service tickets (especially downtime reports) are picked up and handled within minutes, despite the fact that I don't pay for any type of service upgrade.
The response time is unparalleled and I believe this level service is much better than what you would find with a multibillion dollar megacorp hosting provider. INAP seems much more personal and genuinely helpful. More than once I called in and asked for help accessing my server I accidentally locked myself out of and they had a technician plugged in with a KVM sorting me out in very little time.
The speed of their hardware is excellent and their infrastructure is quite stable. I believe there has been one short outage since 2014. I wanted to write this review to let other sysadmins out there know that even though this is not the biggest or most well-known hosting provider, they are definitely worth checking out as I have experienced none of the horrors I hear about with other companies.
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.
