Thank you, Lowest Hosting, for providing a service which goes above and beyond to ensure that our site is running smoothly. We are a small business and to keep costs low, we maintain our website. Lowest Hosting has made it possible for us to maintain our site without hiring out when little glitches arise that are slightly beyond the scope of our knowledge. Best of all, not only is Lowest Hosting helpful, but they are incredibly GRACIOUS!
About Lowest HostingLowesthosting.com is one of the oldest and most trusted discount hosts in the industry. We have maintained the same pricing structure since the day we started and will never raise prices.
Founded in 1999 we host tens of thousands of websites across the world and are currently the 133rd largest webhosting company out of 35, 000 (Jan 04) as rated by hostcount.com putting us in the top 1% .
Lowesthosting.com is privately held and debt free and you can feel confident that you are dealing with an established firm of hosting professionals not a financially strapped startup or part time teenager running a server from home.
We have a proven reputation for fanatically fast support that is available by qualified network engineers and administrators 24/7/365 and offer detailed plain English explanations to any question or concern you may.
Your website and email files are valuable. Be weary of inexperienced hosting companies with a new domain or company running one server, with limited experience at managing servers, no backup system, operating on a single network or lacking sufficient staff to offer support when you need it.
Other hosts say they monitor their support 24/7/365 but don't actually reply for one or two days. Lowesthosting.com average support response is 90 minutes and often much less so you won't be waiting around long for a response. Our support staff works when you work so if you have a question or problem we are always here including major holidays like New Years and Christmas Eve.
Our "churn" rate is one of the lowest in our industry not just because of our low prices, but because we care about our clients, run ultra-reliable servers and offer the kind of support that keeps our clients with us year after year.

I have been a customer of lowesthosting.com since 2004 and am very pleased with their product and prices, as well as their customer service. I am particularly happy with their new site builder templates which are very user friendly and powerful. I was very surprised and grateful for the customer care and support I received when I had to completely redo my webpage due to an obsolete software package issue. George went above and beyond to introduce me to what the site builder could do to make a much more impressive website than I previously had with the old software. I have recommended lowesthosting.com to many of my friends (and my family) who are looking for a cost-effective, easy way to create their own website. Thank you!
I have been with Lowest Hosting for many many years. They have kept their prices the same over the years, never raising them. That is great when you are a small business. Their customer support is great. They are easy to get ahold of and they work with you till your problem is solved. I am very very pleased with Lowest Hosting. I have 4 website hosted with them. I would not go anywhere else for hosting.
Do not believe the glowing 5 star reviews! They are fakes put up by shills.
When they first started out, LowestHosting offered a bare bones web hosting service at a comparatively low price. The tools they provided were clunky and crude, but you figured you got what you paid for. But their service has not kept up with advances in technology and various competitors offer better services at better prices.
But the worst part is their "customer service". If you ever do need to put in a ticket for a problem, their responses are rude and unprofessional. You waste days responding to their nasty emails claiming the problem is not their fault before they actually fix the problem they caused in the first place.
Steer clear of LowestHosting.com. There are far better and more reputable services out there.
After doing some research using the IP address captured by the review site we were able to compare it to our system logs and identify that Tim was (and still is) our client
We’ve posted his redacted support ticket online so anyone can read it and see the date / time stamps showing prompt professional replies by our staff and validates our response: http://lowesthosting.com/accusations/timh/redacted.png
Tim waited some time before ever contacting our support department due to his website appearing down. His web server was online the problem was his domain was suspended because Tim never updated his domain information which resulted in registry verification notifications being rejected and eventually his domain was suspended by the registry.
Tim emailed our support department [...]

I was first introduced to LowestHosting.com about 3 years ago by a friend who was very happy with their services. When I first signed up, i was -- and still am -- quite a novice in the website world but with much assistance and encouragement from the team at LowestHosting.com, I was able to get my pages up and running. Recently, we purchased a new business with an active website on another hosting company. Lowesthosting.com provided fast and efficient service to move the entire website to their servers -- with virtually no down time. There were a couple of links that had become inactive on the old server and they fixed those as well. I couldn't be more pleased with the outstanding , courteous and prompt service and do not hesitate to recommend Lowesthosting.com.
" Lowest hosting provides excellent support , customer service and their prices are incredible. I have been a customer of Lowest Hosting over 7 years.
They host 4 sites for me 2 are domain , hosting and email , the other 2 are forwarding.
I have had a very good experience with lowest hosting and highly recommend them to anyone in need of a hosting company.
Lowest Hosting is the Best !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
john killeen "
lowest hosting is verry good, even when there servers got atacked the recovery rate was increadable!!!!
Every time I have a problem may it be on my end or their end the reselution is verry quik and profesional.
I have been with lowest hosting for over 10 years and I am very pleased, they are the greatest!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Lowest hosting were always very helpful and quick to respond to my questions or concerns, I have several sites with them for over 8 years and would not go anywhere else
I have been a LowestHosting.com customer for over 12 years. I have launched 4 of my own websites and 3 for other friends/family members.
LowestHosting.com has the most popular and up-to-date software packages ready for easy-installation, including ftp software (Filezilla, etc.), online content management systems (WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, etc.), e-commerce tools, site building tools, online stores, image editors, graphic tools, and so much more!
I have always had excellent service and response time. They quickly answer my questions/concerns and even respond with answers to questions that are beyond their scope, but not beyond their expertise. And, they don't charge me extra for their knowledge!
They have held their prices for the past 10 years! This is the reason they can continue to call themselves "LowestHosting.com"--because they are!!
Have had a problem twice in 5 years, and help was very prompt both times. Excellent customer service. Would highly recommend this company.
For a dozen years now, every single issue (days, nights, weekends, holidays) has been resolved quickly. Equally important is personal treatment. I'm not good with any of this tech world and I'm not likely to get good. When I need help, I really need it fast and clear. My dependence on routine communication with many dozens of people and institutions grows daily. For me, a technical bump in the road is a kick in the head.
Lowesthosting gets it. They treat me kindly and with relentless willingness and skill. I rated COST a nine only because honesty dictates that I acknowledge that I can find less expensive service. But the fact is I would pay a lot more than they charge me to know I can absolutely rely on their support. And they NEVER talk down to me in spite of the fact that I really should be smarter about this stuff.
In 5 years I've had 2 problems with the website. Both times it was resolved within 24 hours. It is inconvenient to have to email the tech support, but the first response is within 2 hours, and we go back-and-forth until resolved. They walked my web designer through issues and made minor changes on the website directly to resolve the problem. Tech support seems to be available 24/7 and all American. Interface is not user-friendly for us non-nerds, but improving. Price can't be beat. They now have a website builder with templates that I am using. I have looked into alternatives like wordpress and godaddy but I am staying with Lowest Hosting.
I highly recommend LowestHosting.com The price is low, the Support is AMAZING!!!! If you are not "computer-savvy" (like me) and sometimes need some assistance...just open up a support ticket. I get a response overnight! I am a long-time customer (for over 10 years). I am re-building my website, but if you'd like to see my progress using the free website builder, GP Easy: www.wow44.com
Our non-profit arts organization relies on volunteers and we often don't have enough expertise to handle IT problems that arise. The lowesthosting.com support folks have been very kind once they understand that they need to dumb down their explanation or recommended fix, and have saved us from ourselves several times! We have been very happy with their responsiveness and helpfulness.
The only thing I have to say about Lowesthosting is: SPECTACULAR. George, their Technical Support Manager, took time out of his very busy schedule to walk me through some very technical steps in order to update my web site. He took the time to show me how to do it myself so that, at any time in the future, I can do it by myself! He was VERY patient and kind in his approach with me and, therefore, I have to give Lowest Hosting the highest mark and recommendation possible. Their prices are second to none either; you will not find a better 'bang for the buck'.
I have had LH for many years. They have a fairly poor up-time record and very bad email processing. They once cancelled my serviced because they failed to bill me with their crummy email system. Now they are blocking many of my customers emails. They have no phone support, so you go round and round with them in emails and they never seem to fix anything or pay much attention to questions asked. Avoid this host.
We work very hard to provide our customers with the finest hosting and support in the industry and we take great offense when someone makes false accusations attempting to tarnish our reputation.
A review of his many tickets shows we bent over backwards to help this customer and the high quality and promptness of our staff replies.
Mike V has made outright lies such as claiming we have no phone support when our 1800 number was emailed to him when he placed his order and is on our website and we have phone records to prove it and I personally spoke with him over 1.5 hours last month. He lied that our billing system shut him down when the fact he decided to use a new email address but never [...]

Lowest Hosting goes out of their way to help me. I am an up and coming web designer and occasionally have needed help. They have gone out of their way and I have been very satisfied with them and will recommend them to everyone.
LowestHosting.com solved a problem I had been struggling with for a while, namely wanting to move my site so that I could have the control and support I needed to build a WordPress site that truly serves my needs. Since neither my wife nor I is a techy, the process seemed a bit daunting but George offered to copy our existing site and set up a starter site for us, which he and his team did instantly, expertly and with virtually no down time. Affordable service and support which far exceeds expectations, a welcome change from our other experiences with the industry.
Martin definitely above and beyond delivering great customer service. He walked me through switching my domain from GoDaddy, then spent some extra time setting up our website. He said it would help me get started and save me time. This was definitely appreciated and valued. I have no reservations recommending Lowesthosting.com to anyone! Thank you Lowesthosting for having great customer service representatives and thank you Martin.
I've been a lowesthosting.com customer for many years (for three websites of my own and a couple for friends). I have to say that I stick with this company because they provide outstanding tech support and offer very reasonable hosting fees. They go beyond the expected, do so quickly, and follow-up to make sure all has gone well. I highly recommend lowesthosting.com! A remarkable company.
best prices and best customer service. absolutely the best webhost i have ever used. they answer emails very very quickly and are always willing to work with you to solve any issues that you may have.
Martin is the best He had me hooked-up in about 1/2 and hour What a great way to start. I will recommend lowest hosting from now on! And yes I have tried others but never got such amazing attentive and knowlegeable help so quickly. Thank you
I was struggling with trying to get a new website up and running. The customer service rep at Lowest Hosting help went way beyond what I expected and actually helped me set up a website using the online builder and installed a PHP form for me. Once I was able to figure out how to navigate the website builder and PHP creator it was easy to customize my site.
I've been with lowesthosting.com for a few years and have had good service at a good price. I'm not very technical and their support staff (especially George Wiliams) has always been quick to help me out with tech stuff and when I needed a new shopping cart installed. I like the new control panel and although it took me a bit of time to get used to it has better features than the old one. The only downtime I had was during some fire they had in 2008, but I hear that it affected a lot of web hosts so it's not a big deal. A+++ and a big thank you to George for all his patience and help over the years.
My website was built with Frontpage which is becoming obsolete. Tech support recommended I use SiteBuilder which is FREE with subscription. I was nervous that my site would be down for weeks because the site is published on-line & changes are made while working on each page. My experience was to work on the pages off-line & then publish all at once.
Paul Johnson, with tech support worked on my site to start it for me...it is AWESOME. "HE" is awesome!!!! I am SO very pleased. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!! You are our first & only host for over 10 years...I highly recommend LowestHosting :)
I am so very pleased with the technical support from Paul J @ LowestHosting. My website was very old and the "contact me" links weren't working anymore. Paul emailed me not to worry about it, he would fix it. It really needed a makeover but I am a real novice at building a website. When I checked my website the next day to my delight there was a whole new updated website and I am easily able to edit it. It's definitely more modern and clean, a 100% improvement! The site is wonderful! Thank you so much!
We have a small business that we've kept with lowesthosting.com for a few years. I'll admit, we don't have high demands for our hosting company and our site is not high traffic, but I've read a lot of reviews about problems that we simply have not experienced. Maybe we just haven't noticed? Lowesthosting.com has always given us quick, thorough customer support, and they've always gone above and beyond for us whenever we've encountered problems we can't solve on our own. We like the price, and we've never had a reason or seen a need to change provider.
Our only real criticism is I think the interface could be updated to have a bit cleaner, more intuitive look. Other than that, I'd be nitpicking. We've been very happy with where we are.
I've been with LowestHosting for about 10 years, and my relationship with them has been positive in all respects. Their team of technical people are experienced, knowledgeable, and extremely helpful. They reply to enquiries promptly, and go out of their way to ensure their customers' problems are resolved in a polite, professional and courteous manner. I wish to include an example. Recently I needed to do a difficult mod_rewrite redirect on one of my web pages. I wrote to the technical people at LowestHosting to find out whether this module was installed on my server. They replied right away, as they always do, and told me they would install it. They did so. I tried my redirect, but alas, it just did not work, and no matter what code changes I made, I could not get it to function. In desperation, I wrote again to technical support. They told me they would rewrite the redirect for me, which they did. Their code worked beautifully, and my site was up and running once again. [read more...]
I have used lowesthosting.com for 3 years now and have been totally satisfied. Their customer support is fast and very helpful. I have had tons of questions on how to change different things throughout my website. No matter how big or small lowesthosting.com has always answered very accurately and promptly. I am very satisfied with lowesthosting.com and look forward to using them for years to come. Great company!
My site HAD multiple security features with many file sin httpdocs and httpsdocs directories and numerous subdirectories.
Lowesthosting "upgraded" their servers and moved my files around to directories they wanted. I have numerous perl scripts to control access to secure area and now nothing works. You cannot log on because they have screwed up all the relative paths that were part of the functionality. This site was funtioning flawlessly (almost) since 2003? It included purchase and payments through paypal.
Nothing works and they are playing stupid.
They have turned into a horrible hosting company.
Leaving Them, 30th of December, 2012
A joke... but ok if you like dealing with MONKEYS.
Crooks and thieves. Liars too.
Servers drop at least once a week, despite what their site claims about down time.
Support team needs to get jobs involving a DEEP FRYER, because they don't know much about web hosting.
If you need support, you would be better off asking your local neighboorhood CRACKHEAD before that x military MORON( he makes sure to let EVERY customer know that he served his country ... maybe as a potato peeler ) that claims to be the "brains" in support.
If I lived closer, I would take a DUMP on their front door.
Don't wast your money with these chimps.
Customer support has gone downhill in the last year or so....FAST !
I wonder if they sent customer support to another country, because when i write for support, they never seem to understand my problem and respond with irrelevant info
I am FLABBERGASTED AT THE UBSURD DIFFICULTY YOU HAVE BUILT INTO YOU PAY/RENEWAL PAGE!!!!!! YOU HAVE TO HUNT, GUESS, TRIAL AND ERROR, TO FIND THE RIGHT THINGS TO CLICK TO MAKE THE PROCESS WORK. AND HERE YOU ARE THE WORLDS MOST FAMOUS WEB HOSTING COMPANY AND MY DEAD GRANDMOTHER COULD HAVE DESIGNED A BETTER PAGE. YOU SHOULD BE ABSOLUTELY ASHAMED OF YOURSELVES. THIS HAS BEEN THE SAME EVERY YEAR, YOU HAVE CRAP WEB DESIGNERS, BEYOND INCOMPETENT, IT MAKES ME WANT TO VOMIT AND YELL EVERYTIME I HAVE TO USE YOUR PAY PAGE FOR RENEWAL. AND JUST FOR THAT, NEXT YEAR I AM GOING TO SWITCH PROVIDERS. YOU SUCK, TOTALLY AMATURE, ANBELIVEABLE, POOR......
Their servers are very outdated with their backend software. This leads to all sorts of problems when needing to update for security reasons your website.
Their tech support is fast in responding and quite helpful however up until the problems in June (not their fault) Tech support and LH refused to speak with clients and would only communicate via email. This was the second reason i decided to flee from them.
Servers are often bogged down, non responsive and email has many problems.
Most of my sites are now migrated and the balance will soon be moved as well.
If they do go belly up, what happens to our domains and files? I am doubtful there would be an orderly and quick shutdown with a mechanism in place for rapid transfer of all domains to the new host of our choice.
If there is anybody from lowesthosting.com reading this, please take immediate action to reassure me and the rest of you subscribers.
This is a serious situation and lowesthosting is the worst hosting company ever!
I get this message from billing, then lowesthosting goes out again!! No transfer code, all email down - no way to contact besides the answering machine - no call backs.
We have unlocked the domain and sent the transfer code to the domain's
admin email address listed in the whois. Please save all your website
files and we will then cancel your account and issue you a pro-rated
refund. Please confirm that you would like to go ahead and cancel and
we will refund your paypal account and delete the website from our
server upon your reply.
Request Authorization Code Results
Authorization codes are sent to the owner of the domain via email.
Call 800-762-4913 and 503-579-7973 and complain!
Your website and email are back up again. We are so sorry for the
inconvenience of the outage which was completely beyond our control.
The servers are back up and our support ticketing system is available
any further technical assistance. You can access it by going to
help.lowesthosting.com. We apologize for the delay in reply."
Unfortunately, they are mistaken as my sites are not yet available. I also suggested they pay for a domain to be hosted in another DC, possibly lowesthostinginfo.com, or something like that, since had they had that tool available, they could have posted information throughout this ordeal and, if they were savvy enough to copy the email database to the other site, they could have emailed all of us. But, what do I know.
Anyway, it is nor 10:23 PM in Michigan and mt sites are unavailable and they have not responded to numerous requests for genuine information about [read more...]
I understand that the fire is not their fault,
but lack of customer service and updates regarding the situation @ LH is unacceptable.
What the heck... Do they want to go out of business?? After this.. I am moving my biz!!
The email they sent about people calling!! What a joke!! If it were not for various message boards like this. I would not know what # to call.
Then the whois information for lowesting hosting give you a fax #.. You would think they would have the right contact information there for their customers..
Hmmm.. I think they did not want to get phone calls and put up a fax #..
Ok Rant over.. Going to look for a new hosting company so I can switch it over when ever LH gets us back up...
This evening at 4:55pm CDT in our H1 data center, electrical gear shorted, creating an explosion and fire that knocked down three walls surrounding our electrical equipment room. Thankfully, no one was injured. In addition, no customer servers were damaged or lost.
We have just been allowed into the building to physically inspect the damage. Early indications are that the short was in a high-volume wire conduit. We were not allowed to activate our backup generator plan based on instructions from the fire department.
This is a significant outage, impacting approximately 9,000 servers and 7,500 customers. All members of our support team are in, and all vendors who supply us with data center equipment are on site. Our initial assessment, although early, points to being able to have some service restored by mid-afternoon on Sunday. Rest assured we are working around the clock.
We are in the process of communicating with all affected customers. we are [read more...]
ETA for servers is between 5-9PM.
We apologize for the delay in reply. Most clients have been calling and this email is normally only used as an off network emergency access to our domain for updating dns.
There was a major power outage in one of the data centers where we maintain many of our servers in this case the H1 data center in houston. Although we own our servers and have our own datacenter staff we lease access in the datacenter to supply our access poin to the internet backbones (level 3, savis etc) and to provide us with power for our server racks.
The Datacenter has N+1 redundancy and does have UPS battery backup and Backup generator capability but a completely unusual occurance happened where the main Stepdown power transformer shorted resulting in an explostion and small fire in the electrical interface room. Normally when Power goes out the network swiching swiches over to the UPS [read more...]
I have been with them for over 3 years and have several sites with them and have had no downtime issues. Their support has always exceeded my expectations ... Until now!
I have tried email, the telephone number answered by the FAX, and left a message in ther general voice mailbox.
As a longtime customer, I would sure like to know what has happened, why it happened, and what they will do to prevent future and similar problems. Although i have not given up on them at this point, I am concerned that an incident like this will cause enought customers to flee to other hosting companies, causing a significant reduction in cash flow, and making the problem even worse, up to and including bankruptcy.
if they are going to bounce back, the time to do it is now.
Thinking it's time to change hosting companies - can anyone recommend another hosting company?
The main line is 800-762-4913 and the office line is 503-579-7973
Note: The 'assistant manager' claims most clients have been CALLING? How can you call when there's only a fax number?? Who's got the number for lowesthosting.com ?
We appologize for the delay in reply. Most cleints have been calling and this email is normally only used as an off network emergency access to our domain for updating dns.

If this company goes belly up, how do we change our registar to point at a new DNS server if we can't get to the control panel?
I just paid for a domain transfer at godaddy.com but I can't change DNS because lowesthosting.com control panel is down!!
What a terrible and pathetic company!
This the first time I am seeing problems with them and unfortunately there is
no other way than email to contact them and today 6/1 there site is down so can't
Only hope is that they find it out and fix it.
Since 5/31 afternoon their website is down my website www.astroquery.com which I
host on their servers is down as well.
Impossible to contact any person, if somebody knows about it send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
The 3 sites that I had hosted with them are now totally down -- DEAD. No HTTP, no FTP, no E-MAIL. No Customer Support. Zilch. Nada. Zero.
The only phone number listed for them in Oregon is being answered by a fax machine. I have sent two faxes and have yet to hear back from anyone regarding the outage.
In the 4 years that I've had Lowesthosting as web host service provider, I have NEVER encountered this level of trouble. Their CSRs were always able to help me with problems and resolution was very fast. But, something like this will quickly turn all that sour.
Run far, far away!
