Best service

Host-ed.net has got to have the best service I've seen. 24/7. If you email them for support, within 15 minutes the respond. EVERY TIME! my site has been up with no down time. They even have scripts to add email forms and guest books and counters that are part of the package.

Not so fast rating

This host is not so fast in speed. There is another host which provides cpanel hosting with all features, instant activation of account, check it out. http://adf.ly/1NHZ

down time rating

though provides good free web-hosting services, down time is way too frequent. can't even login, it's frustrating

Honest rating

Half a year ago I was in need for the web hosting account but I wanted free one. And I have signed up with host-ed.net and had no idea if they were free or paid. And I was asked to pay for the service and I did (I though that was needed as one time payment). In few days I understand that I have missed web hosts and ask them for the refund. They sent it immediately and that impressed me. How honest they were! So when I was in need for the shared and paid account I decided to give that honest host a try. Now I have been using them for 2 month and I haven't had any single problem with them.

Not really "on the ball" rating

Downtime is just too much. You want to forgive them because they offer really good free hosting, but I am paying and now I am paying for too much downtime.

Good Good

Well there were a few times that I had problems with sending email. For example when I send an email to gmail this email was directly delivered to the spam folder. Otherwise uptime is good and the server I am hosted at is fast. My over all conclusion is that they are good and it is worth trying them.

Good bargain rating

When I first started hosting with host-ed.net, I had problems with my html coding, they help me figure out the problem and I was I up and running in no time. Since then, I never encountered any downtime and their servers been running smooth so never needed additional support. We have been very satisfied with them in terms of reliability and technical performance. Our company has been with them for 2 years and for $53 a year I think it's a bargain. They are always prompt to support tickets.

Unique host

Allowing FTP connections made uploading a million times easier, and host-ed.net is one of the only free hosting sites that I have found that allows CGI and other scripting, as well as mysql databases. The servers are fast, both in uploading (either with their browser uploader, or FTP) and in downloading (while viewing websites). The decently short subdomain names and ad-free features make having a website that is clean and professional-looking significantly easier. Overall, it is a very good hosting service, especially for those that want a more professional site but can not afford the costs of the premium services that others offer for the same features. The control center is not very intuitive, and it took a little while to figure out how to do things and where, but that is pretty much the only drawback.

Very happy with them rating

Well, I've been with Awardspace for almost 6 months now, and first of I have to say how helpful the customer support is, you barely have to wait 5 seconds before you have someone who is ready to solve your problem. I have been helped soo much with them and they have been able to sort out all my problems within 10 minutes. Now to the actually hosting, I have to say that first, it is great, the speeds are great even on the cheapest package and the reliability is awesome. Back to the customer support :), just like to add that they were even happy to help me when I wasn't paying for anything, to be honest it's the best web hosting company I've ever seen!

Real customer service rating

Fairly new user to host-ed.net, Have 5 sites hosted with them which is the maximum for this plan and found them to be great value for money. I am really surprised by their customer service. I had a 3 months plan subscription and it was to expire a staff member called me to remind me and I answered that I would not be able to renew in time an they said that will give my a few days bonus so I do not have downtime. That's what I call customer service.

Excellent Hosting rating

Excellent hosting and the best thing that I found was Zacky Tools installer - you can make professional site based on JOOMLA, WordPress(because my site has also blog) for about ten minutes. I am also nicely surprised by support service. So my overall rating is - 10 -The Best.

It is good

What can I tell you about them have stable uptime and good support. What else one might need from a web hosting company

Satisfied customer rating

Here is a word from a very satisfied customer of host-ed.net. I am using a paid account with them and I must admit that the performance is very good and it just not match any other hosting plan I have used before. The customer service is good and they treat you with respect no matter you ask a silly question or something more complex. The uptime is good I've been with them for 10 months and I haven't noticed any down time yet. The prices are reasonable. At the end all I can say is that I am 100% satisfied with the service.

Good support rating

Never more than a minute or two wait for a live chat, and problems usually end up being my own fault.

Good host at no cost rating

They offer good support, fast servers, and great uptime, which is actually something you do not even have to think about when you are with Host-ed, and best of all, it is costless web hosting! Users get FTP access for quick uploading of files, and placing ads on your free web site is allowed!

It is good rating

Nice and various number of features, good and adequate support, the only disadvantage that the free plan has are no SMTP and the 500KB file size limit. But the premium plans do not have these limitations so I might upgrade in the future since I know that they provide a good service :)

Fantastic host rating

The site is really great! Honestly, some services offered by this website for no cost I have not ever seen it for FREE. I was surprised that they provide this variety of services totally free of charge. What I like best is that it is also totally free of ads and you can register more than one sub-domain. It is really fantastic. I have not seen any bugs or defects so far. I highly recommend this site for you if you are looking for a web hosting service!

This service provides some interesting features, but to get the most of it you must get the paid plan, too many limitations. Not really that great.
