Probably I would only keep them for management of emails as they seem to offer unlimited disk space with the mention that over a certain limit of files server speed will slow down. Bad support and very expensive after the first year, you will have to choose to copy paste your file in a new account or pay somewhere like double. Unhappy ;)

In the beginning host monster was amazing, affordable, friendly customer service, fast site, and cutting edge tech. Within the last few years the prices went higher and higher while the service, support, experience fell apart. Massive price increases with no new features. When I cancelled today the customer support rep didn't even ask why? There are better alternatives on the market. You can search here or elsewhere, but think well before choosing your hosting provider.

They wouldn't be bad if it wasnt' for the fact that at least once a week the server "goes away", and not even when the activity is at it's peak on the respective websites - on the contrary, that happens usually when the activity is very low.

Price is great for the features it offers, and the customer service is pretty god (not very good though)

High level of web performance. It takes a hosting committed to performance to match that passion! Very powerful cache for data, assets, and pages load really quickly. Even on the shared plans!
