I have had 50megs host my sites for nearly 7 years, They are now one of the cheapest places to host your site. But don't expect much. Customer service line is a call center, and the phone operators are not website savvy. They will answer your questions based on the responses they get from their computer system, or "ask their supervisor" on the more difficult ones.That being said, they have always been able to solve problems for me, but it often takes a bit of time. Yes, the interface is outdated, & the "site builder" program is buggy. If you edit your own HTML & use FTP you avoid these issues. I picked 50megs because it is cheap. It does not have all the extra features that many other hoster have, but it works for me, because I don't have to pay for things I won't use any way. If you are savvy, and do your own editing, 50megs is a great host.

one of the worst companies I've ever dealt with
I've been a paying customer with a professional hosting package for several years now. The web interface provided to access and develop website is miserably slow and antiquated. It reminds me of websites from the 1990s.

Customer service is a joke. I called to transfer one of my domains to another service provider and was told that I would be contacted with the authorization code in a few days. When I didn't hear from them, I sent an email. I finally got a call back from a call center in India telling me that my domain name had expired and that I would have to renew it through them before they could provide me with an authorization code.

Why didn't they tell me this when I first called them? Why didn't they bother to call me back or even send me an email? Why don't they post this useful information on their website?

I'm filing a grievance with the Better Business Bureau against them.

Don't waste your time or money.

Using free plan. Up 95-100% of times in my visits. Free plan has LOTS of ads. Slow server. When server adds in the ads (not in my control) the HTML becomes invalid.

I have had nothting but problems with the site builder function on 50megs...it crashes, you loose everything and then you have to restore all your pages from file manager...BUT file manager will only restore from a week previously [this function is rubbish too has never allowed me to restore from 24 hours ago either]...
OR site builder simply stops allowing you to edit / delete / ACCESS any of your web pages...reporting only a 'server error'...
So you then try their '50megs priority customer support' and get no where - just left paying for a website you cant access, use or edit...
