Despite all the fancy promises, “not bad” is a good description for Hostwinds. Its hosting services are decent, and that’s about it. There’s nothing special about the service; no amazing feature or ability. While it works fine, many other hosting companies I tested provided better performance and more interesting features. I’d recommend you check out Hostinger’s shared hosting plans, which can give you superior performance for a better price.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is Hostwinds a good web host?
Hostwinds’ shared hosting plans are squarely in the middle of the road compared to other hosts. It’s not bad, but it doesn’t really stand out either. Unfortunately, Hostwinds’ prices are higher than those of its strongest competition. If you’re looking for dirt-cheap, but still pretty awesome hosting, you should take a look at Hostinger’s latest deals.
Does Hostwinds offer shared hosting?
Yes. Hostwinds offers shared hosting, among many other services. This whole review is about the shared hosting, so if you want details, I strongly recommend that you jump back up. To reiterate my last point: It’s decent, but it could be better.
You can find quite a few better shared hosting services on our list of the top web hosts in 2020.
Is Hostwinds’ VPS hosting any good?
Well, it’s almost guaranteed to be better than the shared hosting, as VPS hosting usually is. One thing’s for sure: Hostwinds’ VPS plans are fairly inexpensive compared to those of many other companies. If you’re just starting out with your very first VPS, you might consider Hostwinds just for the price.

How do you reach Hostwinds’ support?
You can reach the Hostwinds support team 24/7 via phone, live chat, email, and the ticket system. You may want to jump back up to the support section
, because my experience with the support team was iffy at best. That said, there are certainly enough ways to reach them.
