    PronetHosting.net has been a great service provider. I have had 1 issue since I have had them for my host which was resolved almost instantly. The tech support has been incredibly fast with responses with my questions and when I needed them for an actual issue it was actually faster than my ISP.

    Most of my interactions with Pronet were general questions which they always took the time to make sure I had the information I needed to continue on. They always followed up with me to ensure that my needs were addressed and they did this in a very timely manner.

    Just recently I had an actual problem with the Apache webserver and I wanted to share the process.

    At 11:47AM EST: My apache process failed.
    At 11:53AM EST: I submitted a help desk ticket
    At 11:55AM EST: Got generic email auto-response stating the ticket has been logged.
    At 11:56AM EST: I got an actual response letting me know the ticket is in progress.
    At 11:59AM EST: The problem was resolved, with communication informing me
    At 12:44PM EST: I got follow up email by their tech support staff asking if everything has been resolved to my satisfaction. This was NOT a generic auto-response, this was them taking the time for a follow up.

    Not only did they fix my problem, they kept me informed of the progress with actual emails. Not auto-responses, they took the time to keep me informed. I have had plenty of webhosts in the past, but I have never been as satisfied. It seems to be harder and harder to find companies that understand how important, and how far good communication goes.

    Pronethosting.net is the great way to host your website! I use this hosting for over two months and I have to say that I don’t have any problems with them. I have choose them because I think that they provide full-featured hosting for any kind of web site you can find on the internet for relatively small price!

    According to time I have spent on Pronethosting.net, I’d recommend it to any webmaster or blogger. Professional plans and very good customer support is only one more plus for this hosting provider! My honest recommendation!

    I’m a pronet hosting costumer since 2004. But, the last two years has been a totally disaster. Some day they decide move their server, don’t said anything, don’t take a backup and when I wrote a tikcet they response me.. up I forfot, please change your Dns and restore all your information, if you don’t have a backup, sorry for you.

    In the last year I’ve been close of 30 days without service, each time a completely week without service…

    Here there is the answer after the last problem,

    On February 24, 2008 while we were working with Plesk to resolve an email setup support issue on your Windows web server, your email mailboxes were erased. Unfortunately numerous, diligent attempts to resolve the problem with the Plesk support staff proved unsuccessful, we could not recover your mailbox setup and email messages.

    We understand how critical your emails are to you and are working with Plesk to find a remedy for this matter. Unfortunately, we cannot restore your email mailboxes and email messages.

    In order to help you continue using your web hosting and email as quickly as possible, we have re-enabled your email functionality for your account. At this time, you may log into your Plesk control panel and setup the email accounts that you like.

    We understand that this is a very serious matter and doing everything in our power to make sure this never happens again. We would also like to offer you one month free web hosting for your time and effort. We have already applied this free time to your account.

    Please let us know if there is anything else we can assist you with.

    Thank you,

    Pronet Hosting

    I highly recommend pronethosing.net for anyone looking for a good web server that also allows old time programmers like me to compile and execute C programs in a linux environment. Thanks to their 100% linux and C compiler compatibility I was able to quickly convert my website to run identically on their server.

    Great service. I have two accounts one of windows and one on linux and I’m more than impressed with their linux server. I have had several websites in the past 10 years on different web hosts and by far the best is pronethosting. These guys are trying their best to make sure customers are happy and their sites are up 99% of the time (apart from the occasional scheduled downtime). I won’t be looking elsewhere any time soon.

    I’ve been in the Net since 1992. Over the years I’ve sites for all kind or reasons.
    Hobby, reviews and selling stuff.

    I’ve used Hosting companies on eBay. Not always the best thing to do.
    I registered a domain and got an email less then 6 months later saying the company was closing and not to contact them.

    When it came time to renew the domain name I was stuck … unable to get access to the renewal … it was under the name of the closed company … One of my friends told me about PronetHosting and they told me they could host my site and to wait for the domain to become available again … I did and the registered it for me.

    I appreciate the speed of communication and the no fuss info they provide, plus the price is real cheap compared to many others.

    Thanks Pronet Hosting, keep up the good work.
