horrible communication-nonresponsive
I have been trying to get in contact with hostfor2bucks.com since june with no response. I have submitted a complaint with BBB and the correspondence has come back as nondeliverable. I have no way to access my website and I desperately need to update it!

This is a bit ridiculous! I would never use this company again and am transferring all my domains away from them.

I also had to renew my domain (which I can not move since i can not access the control panel) and I still can not access!!! I have been told it is now a lost cause. I have had this domain for 8 years and it is on all my marketing!

Website hijacked
For others having problems with this company - please file a complaint with the BBB. I too am having problems, apparently the same as other people who wrote reviews here. My site wnet down, I had to reset the passwords. About 3 times. They finally replied to my email (shock!) and said someone hacked my account and used it to send out spam. So they were on purpose resetting my passwords but not telling me. How am I supposed to know?? Then, after three times, they quit responding. Numerous emails, opened 3 tickets with them, even sent them a fax, they don't answer their phone. Nothing. I googled their address, it can't find it. Puts me in the middle of an intersection I don't know where. AAAARRRRRGGGGGHHHH!

Awful customer service
There has always been quirks with hostfor2bucks, but hey they cost $2. Ive been with them for about 15 years. As of june my sites have been having all sorts of issues. My control panel passwords have been changed. I have sent in a ticket every day for over a month and received my log in info for a site I wasnt requesting info on. Now that site is down too. I just renewed it. I can not receive emails on my main domain, it is impeding my ability to do business since I use my email addresses to book appointments with clients. Luckily that site is still up. One of my other sites is missing all its graphics. When I went in to check, it looks like it has been hacked and graphics removed.

Crap customer services. Nonresponsive. waiting over a month to get my log in info is a bit crazy.

No customer service
I've been with this company since 2004. Obviously I liked something about them- the price. When it's up, it's fine. When it's down, things go back really fast. The biggest issue is that customer service is non-responsive. When I have a question, they would either not answer it, or answer it in a way that wasn't clear. When I ask for clarification, they'd repeat the same thing. So we wasted a lot of time. My site has gone down A LOT. When I go to log in to fix it, my passwords are changed and I am locked out. So, they have to reset them and send them to me, all the while acting like *I* locked myself out. The latest issue is that I just completely lost 2 sites. Just like that- poof- they are gone. I contacted them to get it back up and they have just ignored me. No response at all. I had to redo the whole thing from scratch with another host. Obviously that cost a LOT!

hostfor2bucks.com really is best. No hassle.
After six years of hosting my own as well as other sites there, I have never ever had a problem with hostfor2bucks. I have seen some the bad reviews but these people are probably just flakes. Had an excellent recent experience with the customer service department submitted by way of a trouble ticket. I had a response and my problem solved in less than 2 hours. I can not think of one reason not to use them.

Joomla works great. I installed it by going to Fantastico in cpanel. Real easy. You simply select it from the list of applications and click install, that's it. Been with them for 4 years now and the price hasn't gone up. Good provider.

Host for 2 bucks does not support joomla due to security file which you need to correct the ini file for security issues, the only problem is that there is no ini file because hostfor2cucks does not address the issue of the security files, so therefore you can not access your site, they write emails but never really help you with the problem. Then when you complain they go into your other websites on their server and mess up your image files etc. plus try to relogin to your account and you usually can not access that either. Please pay a professional web hosting company.
