831web.com / The Midweek Inc. has been using eboundhost.com services for quite a few years now. They are always helpful with support.

Mainly, I can call them and talk to someone. Their product pricing is also the best, another big reason we stick with them. Their staff is very knowledgeable of the software and hardware that they run in their machines. I give them an AAA+++
Thanks again eboundhost for keeping our customers and ourselves happy.

I love Tom at Ebound host. He is friendly knowledgeable and patient. The site is quick.

I mean super quick. I love there friendly service and speedy infrastructure. Will refer to them for sure.

You just can’t beat this kind of service. I was worried it would be slow because of the price but no worries for me anymore.

Eboundhost sucks. Nobody’s answering their support number. Nobody is replying to email.

My website has been down for more than 2 hours and nobody from their support is updating me. Whenever the website is down, and you send them an email they will reply once it is up again and tell you that it is working fine.

Pros

  • Money back guarantee
  • Live support with any account
  • Unlimited* plan
  • U.S.-based support
*When hosts describe anything as “unlimited,” it is typically boundless except in cases of abuse. A user may be charged a penalty or be required to subscribe to a more robust package if they are overburdening the servers.

Cons

  • No self-help options
  • Some limits on management options
  • No search engine optimization tools

The Verdict

Plans from eBoundHost.com come in a wide range of costs and sizes. Individuals and businesses alike may find a suitable plan. However, this hosting doesn’t come with a site builder, templates, or really any beginner tools. The live support feature will come in very handy if you have minimal technical skills, because many of these plans will require some know-how.
