EasyCGI is no rookie when it comes to web hosting. In fact, the host has been in the business for more than a decade, starting as a prominent Internet Service Provider in route to a successful web hosting provider. Though Easy CGI specializes in Windows-based hosting, the company also caters to those who prefer Linux with flexible VPS solutions. Such variety has made Easy CGI one of the top hosts in the industry and a first choice for many business professionals.

    As much as I love this company, I was rather disappointed that they didn’t support Joomla, but I was able to get WordPress working on it well enough, and I used that to work my site. I may not look it, but I am very resourceful when it comes to webpages.

    My server kept track of how often it could ping my own computer, which is how I managed to check my uptime. Indeed, it was well above 99.9% for an entire year. You’ve got my personal assurance that they stay up for good.

    They simply don’t support enough things for my liking. In these modern times, there’s really no excuse to not have compatibility with everything the web has to offer, or at least the ones that everyone uses.

    I had no problems setting up my blog, and I’ve had no problems with my site since I started using it. Everything is simple, and my programmer always finds a way to make things work. Kudos to both of them.

    Let me tell you this: they are not the cheapest company around to host your site, but if you change to them you will not regret it. They are working fine with my site and I think they are worth their price.
