    Still the last weeks all get better – so I think this were only start up problems with them. Hope they will getting even better.

    This company has been extremely good for various years.

    UNFORTUNATELY their costumer service, for the latest months, in technical support, has been getting worse and worse, and practically I am about to loose a costumer because they can’t solve nor answer to a technical problem.

    Maybe it’s time to start looking for another host.
