😠 Earthlink sucks in response time to repairs
I am extremely frustrated getting a technician to respond to our scanner issues. It takes hours to get a response - when you finally get someone they try to help but it rests squarely with the response time - or lack thereof - of their technicians. They are probably all overworked, underpaid and understaffed!

😞 got info from hi level tech about sending out email. told to follow up with apple. i did ...they said that the question i was asking about bulk addresses in bcc was earthlink's call. earthlink said no it is apples. so apple said okay if that is so, we are good with what you have done. then earthlink froze the message before it went out, stopped my earthlink useage and caused rupture on our dateline. It was not the first time Earthlink did not step up. On the phone for 20 minutes waiting for help....

😃 New email interface is poor
I have been with Earthlink for over 15 years starting with a basic email account. They have hosted my web pages for over 4 years. Overall, customer service and technical support have fully met my expectations. However, this year they "upgraded" their email interface. It is the poorest implementation I have ever used. Further it has bugs or design flaws that should never have passed a quality review. I have provided feedback and no corrections or updates have been made. I am surprised that an otherwise strong showing over the years has been flawed by this upgrade.

📄 Editorial Review

🔧 Services: Web HostingDomain RegistrationTelecom
⇔ Redirected domains: earthlinkbusiness.com windstream.com earthlink.com earthlink.biz
⇔ Redirected from flarehosting.com rackwire.com

With an experience of 25 years in the industry, EarthLink claims to offer high speed with HyperLink Internet and hosting solutions including security, directory listing, website development and branding.

The company specializes in the following web hosting solutions:
  • Shared Hosting;
  • Email Hosting;
  • Domain Registration;
  • Web Design;

Their shared hosting packages can be personalized as customers are allowed to custom lead forms and they can use custom website builder. These are also mobile-friendly and include SEO optimization. All plans include anti-virus and spam filtering, WebMail, as well as organizing tools, such as calendars, contacts or notes.

EarthLink offers a Design Your Own package which integrates domain-based emails, free domain and enhanced website features.

💰 Price & Cost


Their prices are good, but their rates are rather high when compared to other hosting providers. There is no mention of a money-back guarantee either.

⌛ Reliability


The company does not mention any uptime guarantee for their services.

🏢 Data Center


The company is located in Atlanta, GA (USA).

✍️ Customer Support


In order to get in touch with tech support, customers can contact EarthLink technical assistance on phone or e-mail. Unfortunately, there is no live chat available here.

Customers can also access their support section where they can search for solutions to various issues they might encounter.

🔨 Control Panel


They use their own control panel software.

🎯 Conclusion

EarthLink promises well-equipped hosting services available for online projects. These are loaded with features, but come at rather high price rates. There is no uptime or money-back guarantee mentioned on their website.

Nevertheless, EarthLink stays a reliable US provider that offers their customers hosting solutions for their online business, but overall don't deliver the same value when comes to web hosting services like other US big providers: Godaddy, BlueHost, Ionos

😠 Terrible service. Had to argue with them about the number of years I pre-paid in advance (which was for 5 years paid one year ago). Couldn't get anyone on the phone. They disabled my domain name without warning; I received no warning emails. All email replies to my inquiries stated that I must pay to renew -- without referring to the problem I was raising -- and that if I waited past a certain date, then the cost of renewal would increase to $99.99. I will never use them again and will make sure to steer friends and colleagues away from them.
