Not for me
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 I replied that I had no intention of withholding details of my experience, and the offer was revoked.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.
I've been hosting my website for 14 years there using the $5 per month plan since February 2007 ($120 every two years). No e-...展开
mail was sent announcing a price hike, just a bill that I was planning on paying one month early and luckily noticed in-time that it was 20% higher. NO WARNING and NO EXPLANATION. It looks to me like they were hoping everyone would have auto-pay on and notice too late when nothing could be done about it. I got in touch with Billing and they and claimed an e-mail got sent out. I triple-checked and there was no e-mail, only the invoice oddly two months early. They claim they need the money and I was like, I have a one-page website using less than 100 MB of space and have nearly zero visitors. It's a hobby handcoding HTML, so for what I have been paying for and barely use, they are making tons of money off of me for 14 years since all I have is a Virtual Server dynamically sized for what I use, which is barely nothing. The person in the chat talked to their manager to give me my old price for one time only. I waited 15 minutes. Then again LYING via omission: "Here's the updated invoice. We gave you two monhts free. Invoice still says $144 but with $12 discount, so is still $132." So, they offer to give me my old price of 120 and instead of being forthright and honest, they try to make like they are doing me a big deal by saying they gave me 2 months free usage. I caught him. At first I said thank you (for the two months free) but after looking closely, I was in the midst of responding and suddenly the chat ended (they hung up on me) after they asked anything else?
