For many years my site was hosted with a reseller. When I needed to move on, not being a geek or technician guy, finding the right webhost was quite a challenge for me. Few months ago I registered with a compagny who had a large number of positive reviews. It turned out to be a disappointment. Technical support was not able helping to resolve the poor performance of their server. Their replies were either a link to a tutorial or that the problem was on my side. My friends in India gave up trying accessing my site so slow it was. WordPress was so insanely slow that my web developer refused to work with it, leaving me no choice to look for an other host.
During my search I stumped on Layeronline. Never heard of them. Hardly no review. Though after looking up at their product and specifics I thought why not giving a deeper look in it. So I contacted customer support thru pre-sale tickets on various questions topics. Each time being promptly replied, with complete answers. I decided to take my chance with them.
This was the best decision I made!
Layeronline's customer service is the very best. Courteous, patient, and VERY helpful with the sole idea to satisfy the customer. They never replied to me with a link to a tutorial to resolve an issue. They actually resolve it. They give me clear answers. If some times I had to wait a bit to get the reply it was ok, because they had the issue resolved. One thing for sure is that technical support never let me down and more then once they went out of their way to accomodate the no-geek that I am.
As for performance and reliability my friends in India can now access my site in a zip. My web developer is now so impress with how WordPress respond. As he said he never worked with such a performing WordPress in a shared environment.
As long as Layeronline provides this quality of customer service, performance and reliability I will remain a loyal customer to them no matter if there is cheaper webhosting plan out there.
I recommend Layeronline to anyone. It is a 5 stars webhosting company!

Well i had a terrible time hunting around for the perfect hosting company and i tried some of the big names but no they failed, i even went to some who had thousands of good reviews saying how amazing they were and yes they failed too. I then started getting DDOS attacks and again companies failed an one even pushed me out due to DDOS attacks.

Then i found this company called LayerOnline who i couldn't find hardly any reviews for at the time so i asked questions first and they even told me how they could block DDOS attacks and would take my site on with no problems.

mmm ok i decided to take the chance and WOW what AMAZING hosting they have and they are always willing to help and i am sorry i just cannot fault them at al, ok maybe i could squeeze a little negative out and say they could reply quicker but hey i mean it they are fabulous and so far the uptime has been spot on 100% perfect.

So yes i would recommend friends and family to use them because in my view they are the best.

I have been with a variety of hosting companies over the past few years and I'm really glad a friend suggested Layeronline Hosting for my new project. Their prices can't be beat and the support has been phenomenal. The techs respond almost immediately and they have saved me a couple times already. Even the chat support people are fairly knowledgeable, which is hard to find.

Highly recommended!

I transferred my site to LayerOnline about a year ago. I have never seen my site be down ever since. I used to be with some other companies and my site would be down almost daily. I used to be stressed out and could not sleep at nights thinking that I would loose all my content. Thank God I found LayerOnline, I love it!!! I am always recommending LayerOnline to my friends.

The Verdict

Cloud hosting is becoming more and more popular, and so LayerOnline is working to attract
customers who demand advanced technology and a progressive approach. One of the great things
about cloud hosting is that the responsibility for performance is distributed over several points,
rather than just one server. This is ideal for clients with large commercial sites. Still, individuals
looking to have small hobby sites hosted will likely find simpler, cheaper, sufficient hosting
elsewhere. For those who want cloud hosting, LayerOnline presents easy to navigate, feature rich
plans for a competitive price, as well as around the clock, multi-channeled tech support.
