Excellent, in my experience

While being hosted not or long, I really like the service they provide: clear straightforward registration with not problems afterwards, full featured c-Panel control over website, excellent tech support (had questions, not covered in support knowledge base, not problems), nice people to deal with.

Prices are average, discount with first order.

But: these prices are including features that some other popular providers offer each at separate fee. Such as domain privacy, domain lock, shared SSL even at cheapest plan. You could even have e-commerce cart installed on cheapest plan, which is reasonable if you do not accept credit cards payments directly.

For a small monthly fee additional website protection is available. I don't have it yet, but this is a good feature to have.

Possibly downside: each file uploading/downloading creates nodes on server that are stored, as I understand, forever for your hosting account. This number is recommended to keep within (quite big) limits, so when trying different large programs like carts or forums, with install/uninstall, watch for it on c-Panel. Other providers likely have this feature too.

Overall very satisfied with this host.
