The Worst Hosting Company We Have Ever Used
This is the worst hosting company I have ever dealt with. My sites are constantly going down and recently the idiots let my server go down for over 2 weeks while they "migrated" without any eta... Only when I blasted them on Facebook did they do anything about it, but I still cannot access my account and even though the sites are back up, the styling on all of them is off because the WordPress theme options are not registering. I think it is probably a PHP.ini security setting the idiots have pre-configured without knowing what they are doing, but until I can access my account I won't know. The dumbest thing I ever did was trying out this hosting company. Oh... And how can I forget. After using their service for a couple months they raised the cost of the hosting by 400% without notice... Just a draft from my bank for four times as much...

Terrible
I was using gearhost for a few years, and recently when I was ill and didnt get to my manual renewals, it lapsed 3 months. When i cam back to start again, gearhost told me to pay the past 3 months as they had been backing up my databse and files. I told them but my webiste was down the whole time, and backing up a shared server should not involve any extra work. So they agreed to let me just pay the current month and they would restore my website and databse. As soon as i paid, i noticed the site wasnt up, so i emailed them again. and then they told me upon review, they realized my databse was gone. My point is why they didnt say that before they asked me to pay again, and why they said i would need to pay before they could restore my site and databse. At the very least they didnt check before they asked me to pay. And if its true they deledted my database after 3 months (which just expired very recently, why have then been sending me daily emails since yesterday about credit card [read more...]

Don't Do It!!
Gearhost has promised 100% uptime for years yet I can't even get over 95% uptime because they always have something that isn't working. They are alway "working to improve" their systems to they can keep their promise of 100% uptime and in the meantime I lose money and customers because their services go down. And don't try to get refunded for the down time - Ryan doesn't like to let go of your money once you give it to him.

Overview

About Gear Host

GearHost Inc. is an industry-leading, privately held, profitable web hosting and software application services company based in Englewood, Colorado. Since 2000, our company has provided businesses worldwide with reliable, professional-class network environments to host websites, email, business applications, and other rich media content. We are a friendly, accessible group of technology engineers, support professionals, and business developers focused on the continued financial success of our company while adding value to the services we provide.

GearHost has been providing top-notch web hosting solutions since 2000. Based in Denver, Colorado, and serving the world, GearHost is known for its top of the line technology and unfailing support. At GearHost, we don’t just host websites; we live and breathe web hosting technology.

Beginnings don’t get much humbler than starting a company in your Mom’s basement, and that’s just what GearHost’s founder and owner Ryan Kekos did. A major computer nerd and techie since childhood, Ryan built his own computer and didn’t bat an eye at creating software from scratch to save a few bucks. It’s no big surprise that he started his career at Microsoft, before eventually leaving the technology giant to start his own web hosting company. Take it from Mark Zuckerberg and Sean Parker, turning down Microsoft is an indicator you are on the brink of something big!

While GearHost has since grown from being a one-man show to a leading provider of web hosting, Ryan’s commitment to his customers and to providing the best technology there is, has remained the same. We kept our basement-casual attitude and mixed it with corporate-level business practices, because that’s just who we are. And you can count on that.

When it comes to web hosting, options abound. There are hundreds of companies out there vying for your business and your website. So what makes us so special?

Our killer customer service

Even when GearHost founder Ryan Kekos was running the show on his own, he offered 24/7 support (often from his bedside phone). While the customer service team has grown, our commitment to you is still the same. Your call will be answered. Period.

This host is absolutely wonderful! I've had my website with them since late 2000 when my first domain host (a reseller who had an account with them) sold his business out to them. They didn't have a plan quite like what the reseller they bought out did but they grandfathered my account with the same cost and terms as I had been under.

They have always been quick to respond to inquiries and/or customer service "tickets" opened up. The staff personally interacts with customers and visitors on their company's message boards. They have been mindful of alternative operating systems (read: operating systems other than Micro$oft Windows) that their customers might be using when implementing server software changes; the most notable instance was when they delayed the launch of their new e-mail server software because it did not work well with e-mail applications other than Outlook and Outlook Express on Windows. They have also been very open to other software and/or options being made [read more...]
