Host For Web Review by The Beer Connoisseur
We have hosted our website on a dedicated server with HFW since 2010. The technical support is very responsive and helps us resolve, or makes useful recommendations on a range of issues. Tech support is the primary reason we have stayed since 2010.

Useless
My server files are hacked two times in the same week and they have no explanation. The chat option never works and they are not reliable at all.

Resulted in 500 plus unhappy customers
Was with HFW for 16 years and spend a lot of money with them and had no issues until late 2017/early 2018 when they did a update which resulted in sites going offline and over 5oo unhappy customers and all support requests we submitted were ignored. AVOID

Used to be great then we were without email for over a week
Host for Web used to be amazing! Now enter the end of 2017 and beginning of 2018 and our emails were down without any ticket or phone response for over a week. We bought a server at a different host and migrated all sites over before they responded ONCE!

from excellant to horrilble overnight
From hero to nightmare overnight. From Dec 22 until now it takes a week to get even outage issues resolved. Moved all 3 servers to new host last week and canceled everything I had with them. I was with them for 11 years but something major has changed.

No Longer Acceptable
Reseller acct generally OK until 12/17. Now down for days. Support tickets take a week if answered. Chat support says Not Available. Phone calls ring; no ans, no message. Reliability & tech support severely compromised. Moving to new co.

Worst Ever
Been with HFW for years with a reseller account. Today HFW is the worst. No whm cpanel access, no phone dial tone, no chat. With the service as bad as it is I migrated all sites to a different hosting company.

Catastrophic server failure
Over 10yrs with virtually no problem until ownership change (from what I understand) and accompanying server migration just before 12/24/17.

Support overwhelmed. Websites offline. WHM and cPanel passwords reset but not sent to webmasters, IP issues
