GearHost Reviews


Hi,

I'm starting to like GearHost's offers and I'm thinking about subscribing to their services.

Has anyone ever dealt with them? I can't find many reviews even since they are established since 2000...

Thank you very much!

There is no recent ones and I find that weird... Thanks anyways!

There are a lot more recent reviews online by going to popular review sites such as SitePoint, Microsoft, Yelp, etc.

GearHost is terrible... don't do it... I see they are trying to make it back on WHT... I won't allow it.

LOL?! What are you talking about? Over ten years I've been with quite a lot of good hosting companies, but none so far have given me better support and flexibility.

Maybe in the past they went through tough time, I don't know. But today is today and all I can say about RIGHT NOW is: THEY ARE AMAZING! /topic

Not sure whether are you checking about them or telling us how they are doing... You started this topic and now you are telling every one that they are great

Go ahead. Post away with your rants. It won't stop our growth and success. You can feel free to watch us grow if you like however.

Our offer still stands to give you free lifetime hosting to fix whatever we did wrong. I'm sure you post something to the effect that you wouldn't take it because you hate us so much but regardless we're all about making things right. If your willing.

Well we launched our cloud services about 10 months ago and we were private for about 2 months before going public. We run the latest versions of software and patch our equipment within 48 hours of release to allow for testing. Because of the redundancy there is no downtime.

We're not immune to server issues. They happen all the time. We have 3 servers crash a few days ago but the fact that everything is resilient to problems like that is what provides the 100% uptime. In that particular case there was a lag for a second before the other nodes picked it up and everything switched over. Sessions are sticky etc. No problems. Same goes for server updates, reboots, resets etc. We do these all the time but we're setup in a way customers don't see the downtime.

We're not your traditional host.

Yes based on a week usage, so what?

I'll update as I experience, but so far so good, is that wrong?

I talk for myself: I get the best service there is out there and I'm REALLY happy with it. Be jealous if you want :-)

Problem solved ... I will gladly accept your offer of a free lifetime hosting if this guy doesn't and I will share my true experience with everyone possible. If you are willing to stand behind your service like that, there's a reason for it ... now if only I had the Bugatti to go along with the Hosting service I can't believe someone is so wounded and traumatized from a business experience that they wouldn't take up an offer like that.

Yes I did sign up just to get a crack at a lifetime hosting gig. I am trying to find a decent host for a decent price and so far GearHost has been the most willing to help me with my needs and most knowledgeable in their services. ... so how about that hook up for a host Ryan?

Sorry, I wasn't referring to you but your client.
