I just purchased my 3rd hosting account with Dailyrazor - I felt comfortable in my decision to add more accounts due to their responsive and knowledgeable support. I did host several sites in the past with other companies and the biggest challenge was always the support or the lack of such.

In addition I did notice that most of the cheap hosting providers are seriously over selling their packages - which is not a good sign and which I am sure dailyrazor is NOT doing since my site was stable and I am sure that I am getting 99.9% which meet what was promised to me.

If you are looking for inexpensive solution with stable uptime and good support I would recommend looking into Dailyrazor web hosting deals.

I can honestly say that it was not so easy to have found reliable host. I compared over 10 web hosts.
Finally I gave Dailyrazor.com a try 5 months ago. I paid via Paypal, and after 10 minutes my site was up and running efficiently. Their support was helpful and responsive. They are patient - I like it very much.

If you need to host your web site and keep it always online, I highly recommend you to contact Dailyrazor team, tell your requirements and they will find the perfect fit for your specific needs.

Dailyrazor is a 180 degree change from my previous host. They have live people on a toll-free number who are patient, humourous and helpful. They respond to support tickets and emails within minutes. Everything is easy to navigate, professional and helpful. All of my transfers have gone smoothly and the team goes out of their way to be helpful. A reliable, helpful, professional host.

I hope to be a customer for a long time!

I've never had any issues and love Dailyrazor ability to up all the server stats on the fly during my busy seasons. Servers are fast, heaps of spare processing power, database queries happen very quickly. I am getting excellent page load times compared to the previous host which is why I switched.
Great pricing, Anybody could afford a website with them.

I haven't been aware of any outages. good work! This host gets Double Thumbs Up!

I would highly recommend dailyrazor.com to every webmaster looking for a reliable web host. Customer support replies in 5 MINUTES! Their control panel includes everything you need. Whether you're an expert user or a beginner it is very easy to use.
Uptime is great and their promise (99.9% uptime guarantee) is correct. Perhaps most importantly, the host seems to really care about your business, is always friendly and easy to communicate with. I recommend this web host.

One of my coworkers decided to give Dailyrazor.com a try. He was really impressed by the quality of their hosting services and recommended me also trying them. I was shocked by their professionalism, tech support team work 24/7. When I contacted them at 3 am, they replied immediately and solved all the troubles I was experiencing.
These guys know what they are doing, and I am planning to transfer most of my sites to them.

In my opinion, there is no better host then Dailyrazor web hosting provider!
They offer a very good price and on the half dozen or so times that I have needed to speak to them, including in the middle of the night, there has always been a technically competent support person available immediately. Luckily I've haven't had to use the support a lot, but when I have had to use it, responses have been very fast, and they will work with you to get things fixed. Lots of features, very knowledgeable fast and friendly support and the price is reasonable.
A really big Thank You to DailyRazor team.

Have had great experience with Dailyrazor guys. I've had numerous others in the past, only for them to cause hours of work with every change they made to their systems. Never had a problem with them, except a server glitch, which they took care of within 40 minutes of my notifying them.

Great prices and package deals, too. If you have a one or more sites you may well have many years of happy service with them. I highly recommend DailyRazor to anyone looking for a courteous and reliable web host provider.

First of all I have to say that I was referred to the DailyRazor, by my friend. But I had not been told that I would be called for verification. I used my sister’s credit card (with her permission) and they started suspecting that card was stolen. I paid several time in the internet using her card, but it was first time I was contacted to verify that as well as my sister. I was not happy about that and that is negative side of their service as for me.
I can say that my website is always online and I have never had downtime. That is the best option. I have one email with them and none of emails has been lost. I have not used their support assistance, since I’m fine and they have Cpanel and that is easy to manage.
But overall service is great and I’m satisfied. I think they need to change their approach to new clients and there should be more trust from them.
I recommend DailyRazor.

I like their free options: FREE Custom Web Design and FREE Social Media Setup. Moreover, I used to try their website builder which is free, and they have unique free templates. It is a great pleasure to work with them.
The speed of my sites is great, I have only positive feedbacks from my visitors about the work of my site.
A really big Thank You to all dailyrazor staff!

I had to self-manage my own site(s). Every one, Every day or other day went down and the services had to be restarted. It was so bad that I just opened up tickets as soon as they closed one, just because I knew the site would go down. My main site went down, while I was showing it off to clients. On a LIVE site. I became SO frustrated that I just left with out even caring about the up front money I spent.
Calling them to get a refund was a nightmare. Firstly, they wouldn't accept an email or support request to close the account and get a refund. I had to call them, on their US number, that was routed to India. "George" requested me to write them in person to cancel the account, but ohh wait, you've had the account for two months, you don't get a refund. When I kindly let him know that your services were down more than up, I still needed to make a written request.
After spending hours dealing with the issues, I just threw the money away. Forget it. But wait there's more!
I tried to transfer a domain away from them, which failed many times (they gave me the wrong domain key) the domain became registered to someone else. So now, *I* need pay $275 to get the back the domain.
Horrible customer Service, Even worse services. STAY AWAY!!!!

Daily Razor service is terrific. I got immediate response from their support team. They had my site up and running in one day in spite of my dumb mistake. I had to upload my database in chunks rather than one huge mega dump.
I hit my deadline.
My clients are happy.
I am happy.
Thank you Daily Razor
