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

HFW is tanking!
Absolutely unprofessional the way they are handling the crisis they are under. I have been with them for over 10 yrs they had issues b4 but I stuck.
My site is down since Dec 30 and they won't answer tickets, can't call and they ignore emails. Stay

Hostforweb has left the building
$1000s of dollars in lost business from "infustructure upgrades" that failed. No communication, no updates, hidden facebook complaints, no answer to phone calls, live chat or tickets. Probably 100s of other customers in same boat. Disgraceful.

Hostforweb seems to be tanking!
Generally performed well until last week. After 'scheduled' maintenance needed IP updates! Can't find a shared server. Keep putting tickets in - VPS back after many days. Will start looking to move off of this service, as it is now proven unreliable.

Avoid at all costs incompetent service
Been with HostForWeb since 2004, a few issues, downtime, incompetent support but stuck with them. Had short notice of maintenance 22nd Dec now 26th Dec no service for 65 clients, 12-24 hrs response. AVOID! I'm moving as lost clients, costing me big time!

Good in Normal time , Horrible in Big problems
level 1 support is little weak , level 2 support is good
In normal time , servers is running good , and their support is ok.
In big problems like what happened in the past weeks , support disappears , and whole sites are down for many days !
Horrible !

We took a huge financial loss because of Hostforweb
We've had continual problems with hostforweb. This weekend was a total nightmare. We were down for almost 3-days, no communication, no apology, no customer service. We lost a $5000 client and another client is suing us. We've had enough with HFW!
