HostedFX has wonderful uptime and when I was having my site hosted, I experienced no trouble – Until I needed website support. They didn’t even have their online support on, and I couldn’t get assistance. They have no phone numbers only "ticket" systems.

I went to get my 30 days money back and it took a Long time of arguing and back and forth emailing when they clearly stated I could get a refund. Then, 11 months later, I get an invoice I’m about to be charged for another year when I’m not even being hosted by them. Don’t use this site, it’s a nightmare for support unless you just want to put a site up and host it, and never need support.

The Verdict

HostedFX is very focused on providing excellent customer service and the highest quality technology. Numerous plans are offered for various size, power, and OS needs, though if you are new to hosting it might be a challenge to determine what you need without some guidance. You may always submit a question, though you may have to wait until business hours for an answer. On the whole, HostedFX is approachable and ready to help.
