Their prices are fair and they do not oversell. I have recently upgraded from Shared hoting to a VPS and they gave me very good contract for a Virtuozzo based VPS called VPS Advance. Check them and I think you will experience the same good service I get."

I have been hosting my website Vancys.com in the European infrastructure of Host Color for few years. I use to manage my web hosting account myself, so the support is very important. HC support is very helpful, knowledgeable and responds fast. I’m satisfied with HC network and with the overall service and I can recommend it to anyone. Moreover, I have moved my second website to Host Color. Thanks guys!
Host Color hosting service is very good. I have been using it for almost 4 years to develop and host some apps. The support is very helpful. The speed of their servers is very good, their network connectivity is the best I have seen, compared to other Shared hosting providers.
Host Color has been gerat for me for almost 3 years. I have been hosting few VPS with them for apps and analytics accounts. Their network is really great and they do short latency to many other networks and points. Their supprot is also great - very helpful and knowledgeable. They have been helping me a lot to secure, optimize and managed my virtual servers. It is a very good company.
This company is a joke. We just took over an account which has there site hosted by Host Color. It has been a nightmare trying to work with them, they say "world famous" 24/7 support, but the only thing they good about is picking up the phone, after that good luck trying to understand whoever you're talking to, sounds like the same guy every time, very heavy accent and sounds like he has a mouth full of mashed potatoes. You can forget the support ticket system, it gets lost in the void. If you have the smallest technical question you usually get hung up on, happened 4 times so far. We are pulling the site off of here and moving it to a respectable company. My 2 cents; stay away from this company, you can find cheaper and BETTER hosting.

I have been a client since 2004 and in all these years I have experienced excellent customer support, they reply in 10 minutes thru their ticket system, and always were very speedy to solve any kind of issue. Also I have experienced an excellent uptime. Their features are the standard for any hosting, this when compared with their cheap prices is oustanding.
We are VPS customer of Host Color in Europe and I would like to say that we are very satisfied of the reliability of the network and of the management service of the HostColor.com. Their Fully managed VPS called "FM VPS" is at very reasonable pricing. We needed to get our Drupal websites and the whole virtual server optimized and a Host Color system administrator has done a very good job in optimizing our OpenVZ based VPS.
Hostcolor.com has lived up to expectation of its tag line which is Web hosting about people, not about gigabytes. I could not say more how customer oriented there are when it comes to specific issues faced by the customer. For me, who is a non tech savvy person, I had initially faced the firewall issue with my network provider. Instead of throwing me a tutorial or URLs which I need to read and figure how to resolve it, they really took time to find solutions for me. And their help has been consistent no matter who answered my help tickets. I really have pleasant surprise from them because currently I have other web hosted by other mega companies, with either their customer service being outsourced or there are just too many of them in the crew, the solution and service quality as provided has not been consistent.
In summary, I strongly recommend Hostcolor especially for those 1st timers or those totally non internet- savvy people. "You got to find someone who is passionate to [read more...]
Another good thing about Host Color is that they do not oversell and do not limit resource usage. That's why I can recommend them to anyone.
24/7 Famous Support
Excellent Assistance on setting up 6 new Accounts
Support for Email on a Mac
Support for Drupal Modules
Our site's are running Fast, Efficiently and our Work is now a pleasure.
The Last company we used was the opposite of the Above. The Site was constantly down, the Support was ok, Constant Problems with Email, Spam, IP Address's blocked and limited Drupal Assistance.
Keep up the Good Work.
I've tried many web hosting service providers in the past and they weren't as good as Host Color -- particularly with shared hosting. The customer support at Host Color is just very proactive and very fast when you have questions about their web hosting.
I highly recommend their service.
Support is also very friendly and accurate, had only 1 minor issue in the start but that got fixed in less than 2 hours :)
Planning to be with them for a long time. A++ Service.
I don't have skills in website management and the only thing I can do
is to use WordPress without even being able to change things on my
design theme. Host Color has registered my domain name and helped me to set up my account. I didn't have any issues with them within the last 4 years. They have even saved my domain from redemption last year, when I forgot to renew it in time.
I realize that my website isn't that big or important and I'm paying
less than $50 per year for domain and hosting. However the customer
servie I receive is excellent. BAsed on my experience I recommend Host Color to anyone.
I have been hosting my websites with this hosting provider for more than a 5 years. when I have signed up with them the web hosting providers weren't than many as they are now. Most of them used to respond customers within 1 or 2 business days. Unlike others Host Color used to respond promptly to support tickets, I still get answers within no more than 15 minutes. The only thing they needed to change through the years is to fix some bugs in their own control panel. However they switched to cPanel and now I use a reliable hosting service, enjoy excellent customer support using the world's most popular web hosting control panel. If you need stable hosting solution I truly recommend Host Color.
creating websites. I used to use Shared Hosting, but ay one point I
needed to use guaranteed resources so I begun searching for a Virtual
Private Server. I went searching in Google and compared the pricing
and the features of the VPS hosting plan some web hosts offered. Then
I decided to choose Host Color. The reason for this choice was that
they have responded very fast to my enquiry and offered some help and
customization for setting up MODx on a VPS.
I have been with them for almost 6 months and I shall sat that their
service is excellent up to this point. They support responds promptly
to all support tickets I submit and is very friendly. Based on my
experience I highly recommend Host Color as web hosting provider.
Another good thing about Host Color is that they use to help me with the website maintenance, something that other web hosts I used before never did. So I recommend anyone to use their services, especially those who are not very skillful in web design, hosting and in website management in general. You'll get help if you need some from this web host.
very much. They always answer to my support tickets within 15 minutes.
I'm not a tech savvy person and I needed help to set up and maintain
by blog, updates and etc. They helped me a lot with all the tech
stuff. Their customer support system is very friendly and well
organized. I didn't have any downtime and service outage. That's why I
highly recommend this web
Initially, I was looking for some cheap hosting that provided me with the basics. Of course HostColor had all those. But the thing that tipped the scale was the superb customer support that they have. 24/7, 365 days a year! The tech guys are well trained, personable, and fast. They made me feel like I mattered as a person, not only as a potential client.
Couple with that superb servers, uptime and scalability, and you've got a winning combination.
I'm verry satisfied with the way they do business. For this company it is no problem when you call are when you sent them an message to take a look at your server. They will solved it directly. I can recomend them as the best Hosting service provider to do business with.
There for my recomendation will be an 9
