Not bad, but not great
On the one hand, I seldom have problem with HostForWeb. Their uptime is good, their servers are generally reliable, and they seem to use quality hardware (at least in my case).

My only real issue with them, is with their support department. They frighten me. My experiences with them today have me looking at moving away from them.

Here are 4 issues that stand out while reading my ticket history with them over the last 4 years. (I have been with them longer, but it seems my ticket history only goes back that far)

1. It is a rare day when the actually read an entire support ticket before responding to it. I recently submitted a ticket where one of my SSD-VPS accoun...

I have been hosting with them for more than 2 years and their support is exceptional. They really offer 24 hour support. I have had a couple of outages, related with other accounts abusing the VPS or spamming issues, but everything has been solved quickly. Their support is polite and they are always willing to help.

I don't really know why someone would post a review like the one written by jalercay at hotmail.com, maybe he was spamming and got caught. These guys really have a zero tolerance policy towards spam.

I run a webhosting service using their service and I only have good things to say about them.

I've had nothing but success using Hostforweb!
I can express the point that Hostforweb is an excellent Host, they willing to help their customers, you can always rely on them. They have no setup and hidden fees. The activated my account in 10 minuted faster purchase. There have been some issues with server slowdowns however they where promptly resolved by their hence the perfect score.
What truly surprises is how honest their answers are. Where other companies will try to up-sell you more services, or a bigger package, Hostforweb will actually down-sell you a package at a lower rate than you are looking at, should they believe the extras unnecessary.
Great support, personalized service!
In conclusion...

I'm impressed using Hostforweb service!
Hey guys, I'd like to tell you about my experience using Hostforweb hosting service.
Well, my experience with them has been nothing but superb. I think they are very good and they monitor performance closely. I have open a few ticket and all of them as been solve the same day. In comparison with other hosts, i think Hostforweb is the most reliable and the cheapest host I've ever tried before.
Server uptime 99.99% and support I rarely use it since I'm a webmaster. There are full of extra features, moreover, their discount code saved a good sum of money for me. I have been generally very impressed with the quality of service and speed (both bandwidth and MySQL proce...

My experience with Hostforweb is great!
I have been with Hostforweb not so long but I would like to say that I am very satisfied running my site with them. I have no outages and downtime.
The set-up was fast - I was transferring my test sites within minutes of receiving their instant welcome emails. I can say that they are very helpful in transferring files.
They run specials and it is a great plus for them.

I've not had one minute of downtime so I am very pleased, and to top everything off their servers are not crowded and they don't oversell so their server speeds are second to none (very fast).

Overall, I would recommend Hostforweb to experienced and new users.

Have used hostforweb almost since they began 2001. Have also in that time used basic shared servers (2) and shared reseller. In the early year or two there were probs with the data centre used (then) and an unfortunate allocation of IP# blocks which was out of hostforweb's control. The many that stuck with them during that brief period were rewarded with exceptional support and possibly the best featured web hosting that only now other services are beginning to match. Obviously the sicko "Xavier L" has real attitude probs for posting such obvious crap; dare I say it, lies. Have a look at HFW before deciding on your next host.

Hostforweb is my choice!
I've been with hostforweb for 3 months and a half - I would like to say that I am fully satisfied dealing with them.
Their support impressed me. When I talked to one of their experts from support team, I had no feeling from him of wanting to fix my problem as quickly as he could so he could move on the next customer; instead, he made sure he completely understood the issue I was having and did everything he could to fix it, which he did. He also explained what the issue was in a way I could understand. It was my mistake.

As for the speed connectivity, it is quite good. My pages upload very fast. Their script installer tool is useful.
They have normal pricing and their disc...

Hostforweb offers Nice Reliability and Quality!
After browsing all the hosts available on the net, Hostforweb seemed to have the best prices for the best services. So, I decided to give them a try. I'm so satisfied with this host, my business now has grown rapidly, I have a different hosting accounts with Hostforweb, and everything continues to be smooth. For any help or issues I have, I can count on their willingness to go the extra mile just to ensure I'm happy.

Site is extremely fast to load and has had almost perfect uptime.
The features they offer are nearly endless, and their customer support is simply outstanding.
9 out of 10 is my final rating of this web host.

I am extremely happy with Hostforweb services!
Can express the point that Hostforweb is awesome, the support is professional when they aren't being asked any newbie's questions. The price can't be beat, the Control Panel is really easy to use. The site has always powered my web site with ease, no matter how much burst in traffic i get, it still runs very fast.
Uptime since I moved has been 100% and the server is always fast and stable.
It may be $12.95/month for business pro plan, but for this kind of service, i will gladly pay it.
My site it ultra-fast these days and I'm a very happy customer.
Back to my experience with Hostforweb for last couple months - I would say you can rely on it.

Hostforweb have a lightening quick connection!
I found Hostforweb to be very helpful and competent in answering any questions or making changed to my site. Admittedly I am only hosting html based site, but have a steady flow of visitors, who extremely rarely report downtime.
I use them for my web and email hosting and they have been very reliable with nearly no downtime since we've been using them.
This service allows for easy setup of websites and emails, modifications, and monitoring through their control panel user page. Online explanations of features and instructions are clearly written.

Very Good Uptime, Great Support, Good Features. No major problems. Very professional staff.

Hostforweb service is fantastic
I began using Hostforweb in 2011, I have been going on and off with various domains throughout the years with them and have experienced good service. Sign-up was a snap and I immediately began transferring my Websites.
The customer service is fantastic. You can contact them about anything. It doesn't have to be a problem. Even general inquiries are happily and quickly addressed. I mean quick, too; often within minutes.
I was pleasantly surprised by the backup tools you provide which I did not expect at all.
They get an A+ for running their business with a good product and unmatched customer support.

No long history with these folks yet however I must make these observations because fair is fair: I and some others were forced to change hosts due to our host went out of business. I went with Hostforweb based on the number of positive reviews from users. Hostforweb reliability and support have been flawless. I have not had a single issue. Immediate account setup and I had a number of questions that I sent via email and they were answered precisely, accurately, logically and in easy to understand terms in less than 15 minutes every time. So far everything is good...if it changes I will post again but for now I and my 8 customers in the USA are happy.

Amazing. Would recommend these guys to anyone. As a small web design company our last hosts caused us no end of grief, but they've been brilliant - easy to set up. They have great customer support. I had a couple of questions during the initial setup, I received very quick and informative responses from the staff at Hostforweb, inc. I love the prices. The server was down for about 15 minutes one month. That's pretty good up time! As far as the up-time. It is very good. I have monitoring software for keeping up-time statistics and so far the up-time is unparralled. I am very happy with their support and i do recommend them for anyone who looks for the best web hosting provider.

I have been running my wordpress blogs (3 blogs) with Hostforweb for about 4 months. They offered 30% off the price coupon code in the beginning of Autumn, 2014 - I decided to catch that opportunity and saved good sum of money for my future project. BTW, their customer support was very helpful in transferring my files (blogs) to their web servers. I also got Private SSL and 1-year Domain Registration for free. They have manage to keep my site running smoothly even when it has grown 5 times bigger than it was with the previous hosts and, I must say, always with excellent service and response times. Their plans' capacity might not be amazingly huge, but it's reasonable and fair. I recommend this web host, at least I know that my website hosting is secured for years to come!

Hostforweb rocks, because they helped me with my issue I had with my emails. To be honest I did not expected to get answer from them so fast. I waited for about 15 minutes. In a few words I have to say they are great provider. My site as well as my emails is very fast. Support works very fast as well. So, taking into the account their price I have to say that I’m working with one of the best providers. Keep such a good service!

I switched to Hostforweb after a bad experience with another host. I paid via paypal, everything went ok. They have several affordable packages and have generally been very good to me. No downtime, speedy connection. Everytime I got some questions, I ask them online, no waiting times, there is always some one waiting there online to help us, it's just amazing. Good support information including knowledgebase and regularly updated system status. Their plans are quite cheap when you figure what you're getting for them. I really recommend this company. I am planning to use their reseller package for a long long time.
