HostForLife Reviews

from IT Consultant

Wednesday, October 19, 2016

I have been using the hostforlife services for a number of years now. I have found their capabilities very impressive in their support as well as what they offer developers who want to maintain their own sites.

My current site has been updated several times with new interfaces and there has never been an issue since accessing any part of your site is very easy, especially with their FTP services. As I am refining the interface to my current product my hostforlife account supports, I expect to see another set of updates to the interface as well.

I plan on keeping my site with hostforlife as long as it is active. And their pricing is on par with the most competitive hosting services who don't offer nearly as much as hostforlife.

I love hostforlife's hosting plans! They can fit anyone! The one downside is that they dont offer node js and site builder.
I would recommend hostforlife to someone who has a little experience in how web hosting works. If you where to want to build a professional website, you would problobally have to hire a coder to help you. If you want to just make a very basic site, sure! Go ahead and try them!

We have been working with them for 5 years. We believe that they are the best hosting that fits us. They are simple and understanding their client. They always give 24/7 support no matter you contact them on Sunday morning. If you want to work professional, you need someone that can work professional too, the answer is They will help you no matter it's holiday or not. Thank you Steve and other team that always assist me anytime I have problems.

Choosing Hostforlife is by far and a way the best decision I have made when setting up my business. Yes, they provide an excellent hosting service with super fast unlimited support but it goes much further than that. Any time I have issues with my site, I can always turn to them and they always go way beyond the call of duty to ensure that I get all the help I need, even though it's really outside their remit.

I couldn't begin to imagine existing without this kind of assistance. They have never once let me down or left me to struggle. It's an exceptional organisation with the very highest standard of support and I couldn't recommend them highly enough. Outstanding.

We've hosted with them for over 3 years now. They never had any big issues and their support is friendly. Their pricing is cheap as well, which is great. We would highly recommend if you want to host ASP.NET site.

I have never worked with a company that offered such fantastic customer service round the clock. Their staff has always been right on-target and supremely helpful, even when I come in with a question like "I can't access my blargety-blarg, and I'm getting this squirrelly message about the ding-fraxel - what can it mean?" They are never EVER condescending, and each and every time I've engaged their support, I've come away with Problem Solved.

Plus, the value here is just ridiculous. You get so much for so little, and it's so easy. My company has helped dozens of small businesses get started on-line, and HostForLIFE Hosting is the only host service we ever recommend. I couldn't be happier with this company!

HostForLIFE have been tremendous - why?

1. Their response times have been super fast, friendly and most important they have been successful. To be honest I have been with many other companies who have had super efficient response times, but their attention to detail about my issues (not even properly reading my ticket) were so bad, and their lack of knowledge and ability to understand a question was frustrating - I was always asking for level 2 support (even then hit and miss).

2. Another response positive and reemphasizing point 1, they have quality knowledgeable people who will realistically help answer almost all of your questions, even the ones which are not really their responsibility to fix up or answer - I'm not even kidding, some of the info these guys know and can fix is a credit.

3. Performance for your $$ - I think the plans/pricing/performance is fair... just IMO - no point rambling on this one, as if you go onto a thousand review sites you will get a many different opinions as everyone's thought on $$$ is different, and different websites perform better on different server setups.

4. Up-time: well.... I have had downtime... but, not much, and never long... and when I did I went straight onto support and asked why, and they gave me good legit answers. Also, my site caused a lot of downtime because I was trying to save $$$ on my server... Don't do that, and if you do, don't blame the hosting company, take it on the chin as it is your own fault.

I have been building websites (and learning during the way) for the past 7-8 years now. I have been able to use and experience a number of hosting companies from big names to the slightly smaller ones, and so far HostForLIFE has been the best. Their support is awesome and they are always helpful and go further than most companies to solve any problems - they deserve a pay rise ;).

The services are great value for money and after purchasing a package they are always quick at getting you up and running. Even when you need something cancelled they do it. No messing about - which to me means they value you as a customer and not a greedy company who stick you with 30 days cancel periods (and there are plenty of them about). If you want a good service, 24/7 support and be up and running quickly. HostForLIFE are the guys to go to. A big thank you to HostForLIFE. :)

I would never use this company again, there technical support are a law unto themselves and dis-regard their own ToS. For example I was 2 days late on making my payment so they terminated my account, even though their ToS states I have 7 days.

When I tried to complain the response was we don't care, we are terminating your account. I have sent 2 emails of complaint and not one response.

So use this company at your peril.....

The first point of contact was on the same day of me purchasing a EUR 5 a month deal for HostForLIFE server. It asked me whether I'd like for them to migrate my blog (Eagle Inter Corp) for which I declined in that instance as I wanted to try it out for myself. A couple of days later I decided that I will give them a try and asked them to migrate my blog for me to which I was given clear instructions on what they need from me. I was then emailed to be 'welcomed' to the company, which really pleasantly surprised me. My blog was then migrated in around 24 hours even though they say it could take up to 3 working days! Very impressed indeed. Their emailing system and replies is spot on too as they reply pretty well (within the day at the latest!)

Overall a very happy customer and wish all companies were this organised and bang on their customer experience.

Thank you for your great job!

We migrated our origanization's hosting for some of our projects (Inter Property Group) over to HostForLIFE.

The team were particularly and excellently helpful, going the extra mile rapidly, migrating over 5 sites in a matter of days, with the bulk done in a matter of a few initial hours on a Saturday. Ana even assisted getting a broken site back up and running!

They anticipated my needs and were completely understanding of both my ignorance of some IT matters and also with the problems of checking things from behind the firewalls and locked down situation of working in a large corporation.

They repeatedly checked in to find out if I needed help with anything else- knowing what my deadlines were, following up rapidly - almost instantly at times.

It made the job very easy, and I simply couldn't imagine how any one could do it better.

Simply the best hosting. I love their support that assist me very fast. Good control panel that make me easy to manage my websites, emails, database. All integrate very well.

Their windows hosting platform is really reliable. It lets me do pretty much everything we need to setup and manage our custom ASP.NET WebForms and MVC applications that use MS SQL databases. The staff is really knowledgeable. That's the point what I like.

The only minor: it doesnt permit me to upload large video files, I have around 60-80 GB video files. Anyway, that's not big problem becuase I know that other shared hosting provider will prohibit me to upload that big video files.

Truly, if you're looking for hosting, moreover in Europe region, you can rely on this hosting provider. Great work Hostforlife!

Near than 5 years ago, after a long search, I have chose HostForLife as my hosting provider, and since that I never change. To be honest I have take some look to the other providers during this time to see if one can be better, but HostForLife is still for me the best hosting, with it's awesome services, and team.

Yes, I have had to have many questions answered! Their customer care, support and exquisite phone skills are in a League of their Own. They are articulate, patient, and experts in all categories! They eliminated confusion and frustration and I was able to move forward.

Their team have made it so easy to have my website up and running in no time not only providing customer support when needed but practically standing on your side in case help is needed before we even ask. Very satisfied customer Thanks HostForLIFE team!! BIG THANKS to you!!!

I have used many web hosting companies over the last few years. I'm a ASP.NET programmer that has worked for many years in the .NET Division. I've used several hosting services through the years. I find HostForLife are genuinely the best overall service provider and I currently host several sites with them. I have both small ecomerce/ data sites that use SSL, unique IP address and SQL Server. The customer service is always helpful and prompt. I would recommend them!

Ive have been using HostForLife Economy plan for almost 2 years, Ive never had any problems with them that I couldn't fix. :)
Their customer support is on of the best of any company I've ever dealt with, they respond very fast which is extremely helpful and is why I like HostForLife above other hosting companies. At times I though about switching to another hosting company that offered a cheaper plan, but HostForLife customer support and quality kept me. :). I definitely recommend them as they have helped me run my website, any problems that have occurred, they fixed immediately if it was on their end. Great Job HostForLife. :)

This service is great, I never experience any downtime. Thier support is great and helpful even when I ask dumb questions. I would recommened it to anyone if you are looking for hosting services. Cost was only about 50 EUR a year more with discount coupon and the features are much better.

I've been using Hostforlife for over 2 years, as a domain registrar and hosting provider. I have always found the business very responsive, particularly customer support who have never failed to solve an issue. I've used a number of hosting suppliers and Hostforlife are amongst the best. Highly recommended.

I wouldn't touch their 'services' again if I was paid! Perhaps I just had an unlucky experience. I don't think so though. Upon receiving constant error 500 messages, their answer to the problem was that WE should revert back to a previous version of Joomla! For a moment there, I almost forgot we're paying them for a service!

I must admit, for a long time we had absolutely no issue with them at all. Couldn't fault them. But after they updated their servers back in June, we were thrown into almost 2 entire weeks of downtime. From then on we've encountered these errors, making our site completely unuable.

Admittedly, we updated our version of Joomla back in March, to the latest (and recommended version!) and had no problems. Perhaps we simply did nothing to trigger the error messages, I honestly don't know. In response to a follow up ticket almost 24 hours after getting nowhere, they turned round and said I should not have updated my software on my own site without seeking their permission first! Priceless! Perhaps that was badly worded. I will always make allowances if possible. So we'll give that help desk person the benefit of the doubt....he did then go on to blame Joomla, along with error on our parts and claiming I cannot just point the finger at them when my site is down - my site was NOT down at all, and I did not at any time claim it was! It was unusable due to the errors though. We were unable to access our main control panel. So, to cut a long story short, we received not just lack of support, but a barrage of abuse in the process.....not a company I would give my business or recommend to others, I'm afraid. I don't like writing bad reviews, and very rarely do so, but in this case, it merits it

HostForLife rocks because I get immediate help when I have a tech support call, I've never waited more than 10 minutes to get a technician. On top of that they're pretty fast at getting things resolved. Their sales staff is also fast and helped me when I wanted to upgrade an account, they figured out my credit for money paid on an existing plan, and I was in action in about five minutes. I got this excellent level of support when I was on their least expensive, "classic"plan. I think they are the best ASP Host at these times guys! You're ROCK!!
