    I have been a customer since 2007. The service is so great that kept me renewing my service year after year. I have a managed dedicated server since 2008 and I have no plans to change it.
    Even though sometimes my questions go beyond the scope of their support, they continue to help.
    I have no complaints and I recommend 100%.

    Looking for a hosting solution that simply will not let you down? STOP! BUY HOSTDIME. They are amazing. I have been using their service since 2007 and Hostdime has continued to increase the technical support and services. This company is wonderful to work with when you are trying to figure something out or when you are trying to survive something that horrible has happened. As my business partner, Hostdime has been a dream. I haven’t had to worry about my hosting and I am able to focus on my customer’s needs.

    I honestly assume they are competitive. I would offer the advise that even if Hostdime is more money, it is absolutely worth it. The technical support I have received over the years can only be described as ABOVE AND BEYOND. The support teams are always professional and it is a secure service. Never one time has the team failed to authentic me before helping me. I want to emphasize the technical support aspect of this company because when a challenge happens (and it will happen) you need a partner with a team of people that can help and there is none better than your Hostdime team.

    Lastly, this glowing review is NOT paid for or compensated for in anyway. I am grateful for their help through the years that has allowed me to focus on my customer challenges and grow my business without the worry of my hosting services. I have only experienced A+ support from this company and it means the world to me. Thank you Hostdime.

    I never even give it a thought. This is the best compliment I can give. If I had to think about my hosting I would move it immediately!

    I have been with hostdime since the beginning, and they have grown into a powerhouse of a hosting company.
    Its been a good 15+years i have had my hosting thru them, will never go anywhere else. Hands down the best customer service, bang for your buck and overall satisfaction that anyone could ask for. If you want a hosting company that is proactive on maintenance, security and customer satisfaction, choose hostime….you will not regret it, i guarantee you that.

    I lobe their hosting.

    I have 2 dedicated servers and 2 Reseller with HostDime for 4 years. Quite simply – in my opinion – are the best. His stand is wonderful.

    I am a HOSTDIME customer since 2010. In fact they have plans a little bit more expensive than others hosts, but it can be justified by a HIGH QUALITY SUPPORT. During this time I already have chance to change their services for another more cheap but decided no just because the Amazing Support.

    I’m a client since 2012 and i’m glad with Hostdime services. The relation cost/benefits is not the best you will find but it’s ok since you will have no stress with Hostdime. Their support is almost perfect. Why almost? Some supporters (a little bit) have no know-how to help in scenarios that become more complex than the usually, but the 24×7 support time and the online chat keeps the grade high.
