APT Host complaints

Global Webmaster since 1993. From over 4 years with APT host I can honestly say that we have lost literally thousands of dollars due to this companies negligence and corrupt billing process. When I purchased supposedly 2 separate class ip VPS accounts, I found out after two years later they added it on to my VPS account (same class ips) and charged me for two accounts an space. Now where I come from that is fraud. Their only answer after threatening them with a class action law suit was... sorry we made a mistake and will refund the money. Now 2 years later, still no refund. Apt Host are crooks! Use your head and Google search "APT HOST Complaints" on about how these crooks do nothing but rip hard working people off. What comes around. The funny thing is? The client they ripped off is a Canadian billionaire. How dumb can you get?

Cheaters and Fraud. Cheap tactics. Never Pay their Affiliates. I had accumulated 119 usd and asked them to Pay my money, they asked my phone number for verification and said they have to verify before payment. They NEVER called up and No reponses to Support Tickets. I had done so much hardwork to refer customers and made 119 usd. This was going on for 50 days and they never paid till now...


Support : No proper reponses. Un-necessary excuses and delays


Poor Reliablity, Hard Disk Crash was observed that too after 24 hours of downtime i brought to their notice, and ALL DATA GONE.. NO BACKUPS.


Cost Too High for poor service

Setup Took 72 hours to activate VPS hosting

I've been in the video sharing business for quite a while now, and obviously, my work involves alot of uploading, editing, and managing. With Apthost, I've yet to experience any downtime for over a year now. Should I have a question regarding the cpanel, their friendly staff is always there to help. For anyone who is new to the world wide web, you'll be highly satisfied with their user-friendly tutorials on how to practically do anything. Overall, I recommend them to anyone and thank them for their great service.

AptHost has actually been really good to me over the past couple months that I've been with them. I think they had some internal issues but It didn't affect my website and everytime I've contacted them I never had any issues reaching them. One time my site was down but I went on live chat and guy named James was able to get it back online for me in a few minutes. Overall I think they're great and I've already recommended them to some of my friends who also have sites.

The support is horrible, Brian French the CEO promises and never accomplishes. Cody who is the manager and billing never responses and treats you in the most low and dirty way. I would never recommend this host.

It would be nice if my website would stay up. Up for a day, down for a day, up two days,down a day. If your business depends on having a viewable website, this host is not for you. Hey apthost, you are costing me MONEY! I would highly suggest you host with someone else.

I've been contracting for web hosting since the mid-1990s and have been with large and small companies. I decided to go with AptHost because of their support for ffmpeg and a few of the other video tools they support.

Since signing up in June 2008, service and performance have been flawless. In the past month or so, I've run into a number of problems (server offline, server extremely slow, MySQL not working). In each of these cases, I've been able to create a support ticket or initiate a live chat with the support, and have the issues resolved within a few hours (if not minutes).

I think the experience one has with AptHost really depends on which server they have your data on. As mine is a shared server (perhaps shared with many running video scripts) it depends on what others have going on that affect server load. My most recent problems with slow server performance cleared up when another site's scripts were disabled by the Apthost administrators. If someone is running a [read more...]

I've had the worst experience of my life with apthost. This was worse than my divorce.

They lost data. I've been buying virtual hosting for 10 years with a lot of companies. No one has ever just lost data and then not been able to restore it.

They lied about why the data was lost. First saying it was due to an employee's incompetence, then it was because of a hack on the site, then network issues.

Then, when I asked that my account be canceled they took 5 days to respond to the ticket. Then went ahead and charged it anyway. Then they wouldn't let me cancel unless I checked off a new terms of service waiving my right to sue in small claims court.


Oh, and the Better Business Bureau has bad reports on them, as well. Here's what they say about apthost.


Based on BBB files, this business has a BBB Rating of F.
Reasons for this rating include:

* Failure to respond to complaints filed against business.
* BBB does not have sufficient information to [read more...]

I have been with Apthost for 3weeks now. WORST hosting company on earth! My first 3days with them

they had harddisk problems it took them 3days to fix that. Then i could setup my account everything

worked fine for two weeks (except for ffmpeg wich generates alot out of sync videos) and yeah totaly

NO support it takes them 3days to respond to a ticket if they reply at all. Live chat isn't worth

anything because even if you want to upgrade (wich i wanted cause i wanted to upgrade and switch to

another server) they can't even help you. Live chat is totaly NO support at all, the only thing they

say is "please hold" and then you can wait 20hours for no response.
Live chat is worth nothing, and ticket support if any reaction at-all is totally off-topic and/or a

couple of days later.
After two weeks something happened to server again and data of 4days are lost and the server was

down for 5days. My main account had been fix after those 5days but the 4addon [read more...]

I have hosting accounts with at least three different providers and Apt Host has proven to be the worst. My main problem with Apt host is their time to resolve a problem. It happened more then once that the site would crash, showing some wierd errors. It takes them several DAYS ... yes, you hear it right... days... to fix a problem. At the end, after tens of tickets and mails sent to their management you still have to fight with the techinicans because the site does not work properly... I am giving up on Apt host and changing provider because you loose too much nerves and time to deal with them. You try to establish a profitable web site, finaly starting gaining real traffic and they put you offline for days... Not worth the money you're paying...

Absolutely The Worst Hosting Support Ive encounterd. I moved from a larger hosting company reading all the "Great Things" people said on there homepage and reviews. The Billing chat was great..once my order went in, everything went downhill., They promised me 3-5 hours on my transfer, 4 days later...nothing., I called support and they said they were moving the sites now, and it would take 4 hours, 6.5 hours later the guy I spoke to went home and just left a note for the next tech to move the sites., and they still were not even in the process of being moved. The live chat is rude, can not answer simple questions like "Has my site transfers been started yet"., All I got was "Do you have a ticket number"., I replied yes and gave it.. the next answer was "We will reply to the ticket"., Its live chat guys a simple check and a yes or no will suffice. The ticket reply time was over 12 hours without a response and I had to call to just get a response. After that average ticket response time [read more...]

I have been using apthost services for a couple of months but dare say they are great, no downtime and their connectivity is 100%. Support works fine and they answered all my questions quickly. Pricing is rather low and their control panel is user-friendly and simple to use.
Recommend them to use.

I have been with APTHost for a little over a month now. They have the most fantastic support ever! The Live people can usually figure out whats wrong. They are very nice and knowledgeable. Their prices are great, their network is great. I have not had one minute of down time since I've been with them. Europe and America have great ping and service! I would recommend them to anyone!

Not sure what the other guy is on but Ive had the exact opposite experience with apthost.com

1. tech support is great and are always on chat ready for me
2. they answer all my question
3. they didn't lose my cpanel transfer
4. They were so friendly they included a smiley face in the emails
5. I've had no downtime so far
6. server certainly does not go down everyday.

I have been with hostgator and jaguarpc and none can stand up to the great service Ive received from apthost
