My use has changed over the years, and the 10 Mb limit now seems miserly. I have bought more, but will shortly move. because since iserve and then orcon took over, the informal friendliness and super-prompt responses have gone.
What I get now are repeated 'account suspended' notices, where the site is suspended, presumably because I haven't paid a bill. But a/ I am simply not getting the bills- possibly due to excesses of spam. I have always paid up any bills I do get. And b/ I'd expect a warning, or a friendly reminder, or at least a prompt response when I have been closed down. This no longer feels like a good service. It seems overpriced, and it's causing me grief!
Time to move on, I think.
I have had one ecommerce client on Kiwi Web host since 2006 now, and we have constantly been discussing moving the site to a more reliable and supported platform. However when things stabilize, the client tends to put the move on the back burner until the next problem.

Been with these guys for a number of years with my website going down a few times but today their whole server crashed with no back up to keep me online. Over 16 hours later and it is still not functioning.

These guys used to be helpful and offer a great service but they were bought out by iServe and things got worse then they were bought out by Orcon and now their service is abysmal.
Their prices are cheap but don't go with them if you want reliability.
