The service has went down a few times, which wasn\'t actually to bad. But there support isn\'t to good. I\'ve been a customer for a little while (6/2013) spent over $500 with them in under the 2 years, and while getting better their service seems sub-par.

The latest issue is looking at several of their pages where Node.js should be included, in the packages which it is not included. I was asked to upgrade to a packages that cost over $100+ EVERY MONTH. This request alone should result in 1 or 2 rating. But since the control panel got a make over it seems to earn at least a few stars back, and since you have use SQL Management Studio with their SQL DBs seems to deserve at least 1 more.

Looking for a new host, hopefully can find one soon!
