    HawkHost Review [5 months]

    So, this is my 5 month review of HawkHost.
    Basically, to put it in one word, their amazing.

    I'm hosting couple of sites right now, I used to get around 30K unique a month for all my sites but now its lower.

    I paid around $65 for one year, and that was a fantastic deal.

    I am on their Advanced plan, 12GB and 120GB of bandwidth.

    Speed & Stability
    When I download stuff from the server, it usually max'es out my internet speed, so no problems there. My sites load super fast and I never had visitors complaining about slow speeds.

    Uptime:
    January - Monthly uptime:100.00% Downtime:39 sec(s)
    Feburary - Monthly uptime:100.00%
    March - Monthly uptime:100.00%
    April - Monthly uptime:100.00%
    I'm using Host-Tracker.
    They always post in the forum if there is a planned maintenance ahead.

    Support:
    Ha! I don't even remember the last time I had to sent in a ticket (Thats a good thing).

    Really good host and I suggest for other people to use 'em too.

    Thanks for the review - glad you've had a good time with us so far . I hope this upcoming seven months goes just as well (hopefully longer)!

    Negative reviews can be quite captivating (for the same reason why TV news are usually about bad stuff), but positive reviews can be thoroughly refreshing! Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks for positive reviews. What site(s) do you host with them? Just curious, will try how they load for me from Lithuania.
    P.S. Keep us informed about your future experience with this host

    Since I guess you read our forums I'm curious those uptime reports are you putting in the maintenance windows so that they don't get counted against the uptime report? Just curious since I know a lot of our machines had maintenance windows at least once over those few months for kernel updates.

    Companies that keep in communication with their customers always deserve good reviews.

    I belive host tracker checks every 30 minutes or 15 minutes. I forgot.
    So, I'm guessing maintenance gets finished under 30 minutes or Host Tracker is serioulsy messing up.

    We post the downtime as a followup in the forums - usually they're between 5-10 minute .

    Ha, then thats why hosttracker, hasn't picked it up.
    Meh, honestly, I'm not really anal about 30 minute downtime per month.

    So 'tis all good.

    Very much agreed!

    Thanks for the review, I'm glad to see there's some companies out there such as Hawkhost that seem to really care about their customers even though their a more "mature" company (as far as age and size)!
