I've used Tierra.net since 2001 and I have some of my clients also hosted with Tierra.net. The reason I've stayed is their prices are fair, their admin areas are easy to understand and these people answer a customer support question (especially phone) quickly. All of my 65 domains are parked there too and I've never had an issue of pricing or tardy renewal notices

I can recommend TierraNet to other users from my experience. I am happy with the service and support, the support is always on time and very good quality service. I found tierranet as good as Blue Host, Domain racer, and crazy domains as they also provide good support and features.

The worst. Impossible. 150% price increase on domain registration and they are frustrating all efforts for me to transfer my domain to another registrar. Unethical business practices.

I have decided not to renew my domain with TierraNet.
Almost 2 months after my domain has expired, they sent me an invoice.
That's crazy and bogus.

Getting worse
We continue to get invoices from your company for the annual fees for these domain names. We cannot understand this. As you know we had huge problems with your IT people who were unable to read correctly our credit card details both manually and through you IT system. This a unique problem for us we have never had before with any company in the UK or internationally. Your latest invoices just received show amounts of 25 dollars still outstanding. Our Bank records show payments made to your company and debited to our bank account for two payments of 24.99 dollars made to you on 24 October . These were made on our visa debit card ending 8995. Also looking at our account details on your website I find that our registered address for these accounts are completely erroneous showing an address in FRANCE !!!!. Could you please confirm that you will get this mess sorted out as soon as possible

I have been with Tierranet for well over 15 YEARS.... They used to be the BEST..... now, they have dropped the ball. I pay over $150/mo for MIVA support, yet, when we have MIVA problems, tierranet simply says... "That's a MIVA problem, not ours".... and pass the ball, YET THEY REFUSE TO OPEN A DIALOG with MIVA, as the intermediary they are supposed to be. But they have no problem taking my MONEY!..... I am sickened by the lack of support. Back in the day, I could actually TALK to a tech, and solve problems on the spot.... NOW... they will not ALLOW me to speak to any techs directly..... Problems must be escalated, and if I'm LUCKY, I get a response within about 3 days!! LAME!... and the response is not from the tech directly, but through a rep, translating what the tech told him/her. LAME.... LAME.... LAME. For a customer that has brought them HUNDREDS of THOUSANDS of dollars worth of business, I expect more consideration.... Again.... 15 years+ loyal customer, yet I am [read more...]

Sadly, after 17 years with this company, I had to say goodbye to them. They had little to no understanding of what it means to someone's livelihood when their website is inaccessible. THEN, while trying to solve the problem, high-handed emails with victim blaming was their solution. No, Tierra, it isn't my job to protect you, it's your job to protect me. It was pretty devastating to leave after 17 years, but they could have cared less; that told me volumes. I lost several thousand dollars in revenue thanks to them - proceed with caution in choosing this company.

Since 2000--for over 16 years--I have hosted on Tierranet a web site for a not-for-profit social association, during which time I have paid them over $4000 total. Each month, when a newsletter is ready on our web site, I individually e-mail each of our hundred-and-some members an announcement.

The e-mail messages are sent to one member at a time, a minute apart over a few hours. Each month, some of those announcements bounce with an error message indicating that it was rejected by the addressee's server because one or more of Tierranet's e-mail servers (provided with our hosting package) are on some kind of spam blacklist or other.

Every time this happens, I write to Tierranet Support describing the problem. It has been my hope that Tierranet would realize that hosting accounts which broadcast spam is bad for business, close those customer's accounts, and clean up their reputation. Instead, Tierranet's response has been to defend them and chastise me for sending "too much" [read more...]

Tierra.net SUCKS!! Don't trust them.
I thought tierra.net was wonderful. I stayed with them for nearly 8 years. When I really needed help, they didn't return my calls, didn't reply to my emails and when I called they were waiting on my call. The guy said "I was told that if anyone from your company called that I need to take a message and have a supervisor call you back". But the supervisor never did. My company went into the toliet for days. If you run a website then you know that days without service is BAD!! I'm still waiting on that call from a supervisor. In the meantime I've switched companies and everything is fine now. Thanks for nothing tierra.net.

TierraNet came out with new hosting packages in Jan 2009. One of my clients is a retailer using MIVA Merchant Web Engine and shopping cart hosted using TierraNet's 'Premium Package' priced at $24.95 monthly and has been hosted with TierraNet for going on 7 years. As a webmaster, I have brought over my other domains and receive discounts bringing the price 30% lower and have passed those saving on to my clients in leui of 'reselling'. The MIVA bundled package, MIVA updates and MIVA support provided free with the hosting have my clients thousands of dollars. There was no need to purchase MIVA Merchant or revisions from MIVA or purchase MIVA technical support. Updates are painless. I use a real time server/web monitoring service and have not received an alert since June of 2008. I've had the occasional blacklisted SMTP server or email delays and TierraNet's Toll-free 24/7 tech support staff are always helpful and respond quickly. Hosting includes 25 GB of diskspace (more than enough to [read more...]
