CPHosting Review – Bad For Your Business

If you are looking for a good web host to run your online business, look somewhere besides CPHosting.com

I’m a big believer that it’s important to share horror stories about bad web hosts in the hopes that they will either go out of business or improve their services. That’s why I’m sharing this review.

CPHosting is basically a shared server environment like most of the web hosts on the Internet. What makes them particularly bad isn’t their technology but the way they treat their customers and their overall level of downtime.

From the first moment I started using CP Hosting .com I noticed that half the time I visited my sites they would be down and I’d have to try to get support. The support staff was always slow to respond and rarely listened to me before taking a demeaning attitude. Treating your customers so poorly is a terrible way to run a business and I hope that by writing this review, others will learn from my mistake and avoid this company.

I’m a forgiving person, and I understand that no web host is perfect, but when it comes to CPHosting.com I would say you should definitely stay way.
