I have a reseller plan with HostUtopia, been with them since they bought Ace of Space. We host a bunch of pretty heavy webcam sites. A few years back their support went downhill when they tried outsourcing it. Their support was brought back in house, we deal with Jason and Steve over there, they have always been more than helpful. They help us more with WordPress sites than any forum we've found. I'd recommend them anyday.

During 6 years with HostUtopia I have generally found their support system customer friendly. However, during the past two weeks there seems to be a lack of effective response to my current problem. Escalated and re-escalated tickets have been with their Tier 2 support section for several days without effective action. I am looking forward to discussing this with their management as I know they can do much better.
