I have a small website for a condo association. I was using basic directory security where if the user doesn't have access then a dialog box pops-up asking for the user name and password. They dropped the security leaving the secure directories completely open. I have no idea how long this was going on but they dropped my security! The issue has been given a ticket number so god knows how long they'd leave my site open while their discussing the problem. I'm deleting the sensitive content and going to start scanning the internet for a different web services provider.
I have been with Aplus.net for over 10 years, principally as a domain registrar, and more recently (last 7 years) as a share business plan customer. I have always felt that the company based in Overland Park, Kansas, had a very bad attitude towards customers, and I have been forced to file at least one BBB complaint. When the tech support was taken over by a Canadian company, the quality of support noticeably improved; however, the canucks are very limited in what they are permitted to do and are restricted, essentially, to the same level of access as the customer - i.e., using the control panel.
1. Poor security. Passwords are limited to 8 characters for email accounts.
2. Aplus requires you to give your primary account password to verify identity when contacting them for support, and they have done away with challenge-reply verification.
3. Support is unable to answer basic questions like what version of phpBBB the hosting plan supports. I had to escalate [read more...]

If I am going to spend money for poor service. I may as well go someplace else where I can get service for less money.
"We do not offer prorated refunds on any of our services." This was from
Manager, Escalations and Retentions
APLUS.NET, a Deluxe Company
Do not use this service!!!!
Ahora parece que han cambiado de servidores y que incluso han subcontratado alojamiento con algún otro proveedor.
Ha cambiando el Panel de Control, han cambiado las rutas de alojamiento, ha cambiado el Webmail. TODO A PEOR
Ahora incluso ha dejado de funcionar el envío de formularios mediante PHP en 7 formularios que tengo funcionando.
No dan respuesta, simplemente me dicen que no hay cambios en su Sistema y que hable con mi web-designer.
Resulta que soy yo el web-designer.
Mis formularios han estado funcionando todos estos años y no he tenido que tocarlos. Ahora el comando PHP mail(...) no ejecuta su cometido. Y SIN EXPLICACIONES.
Ya me estoy buscando otro proveedor.
But as time went on, my view started to change for the worse:
As many people with aplus.net, people used to send me emails I never received. When asked about it, all support could say was, well, it has been received by our server so it should be with you shortly... and guess what? It never did.
Then they decided to add captcha feature to their form processing software. I have never seen such a bad integration in my life. After clicking on the submission form, customer were taken to a totally blank page with captcha on it... They couldn't care less about respecting the look and feel of your website! I complained about it but they said that I should install my own script... A nice way to say f@*! off, we don't care what you [read more...]
Not only did I never get to use my dedicated server or any services but now I lose my money too. Sorry you should change your name from Aplus.net to FPlus.net, worst service Ive ever been exposed to. Just a bunch of thieves.
Thanks again Fplus.net
When you call the their tech support, they will tell you they don't know anything about their outage, and telling you to go somewhere else if you are not happy about their service, their up time is terrible and non guaranteeable!!
I want to get out their service once the Holiday sesson is done! I am so fat up with them!
This is what is on their site
and this is how they honor it:

They keep quite about downtime hoping no customers notice... Stay clear of them!
This a testimonial to their capacity to keep your business up and running. By now my company has lost a few thousands of dollars of orders . I am looking forward to seeing what they will be offering to compensate for their failing. Reading the other posts i am not to hopeful. By the way, I also had charge issues. A couple month ago, they debited us twice.
I am taking my business elsewhere as soon as my IT team has the bandwidth to migrate our servers.
They charge your credit card for services you don't order.
The last week it has had 12 hours downtime on the network itself. 4 + 4 + 4 = 12 hours. The server has been fine, but their network sucks.
The support has no clue about when and how they will fix their serious quality problem.
They claim a 99.99% uptime. They don't live up to that. Aplus.net is a fake. Just avoid them.
