|Just a miserable hosting company. Go to http://hostmdssucks.com/ to read my tale of woe.|
I only wish I could choose something MUCH worse than "Negative". Like Horrific!!!!

|I was using VistaPages as a host, and hostMDS bought them out, so I was forced to use hostMDS.|
Probably the worst webhost I have ever dealt with, out of 4-5. Constant problems. They kept bringing my site offline for various reasons, never bothering to call or email me about the issues before. None of them were valid issues, either, and if I had time I would sue them because I became so sick of it that I stopped using them with another 8 months left on my contract. I just couldn't deal with the downtime.
Also since I was a Vistapages user they were supposed to continue my deal with Vistapages, which allowed me SSH access and 10 open firewall ports. But every 1-2 weeks they would re-block the firewall ports (must ahve been automatic or something because it was like clockwork). I would have to email them and after 3-5 emails EVERY TIME finally they'd bring it up. I delt with that for about 3 months before deciding to not use hostMDS anymore for the pages that were using the SSH/firewall access... Thus making my account with hostMDS useless compared to cheaper hosts.

|I was considering not renewing with Host MDS in March, I called up to have them switch my Pay Pal Payment to Credit card and the customer service lady was so rude and wouldn't listen to any of my concerns. She finally switched the account searing at me and hung up. TRY DOING A FOLLOW UP TO TALK TO THE OWNER, IMPOSSIBLE. This morning April 14 at 3PM in the morning I was testing some audio files and my site went down, CPanel wont accept my login or password and TRANSMIT for the Mac gives me the same response. This is the 4th time this has happened in a year and a half. Moral of this story is always go with your gut reaction, I should of switched !!!!!!|

|HostMDS has been very good. Been with them for over a year. They have very good uptime and pricing is excellent. I recommend them.|

|They are down as much as up-- none of the phone numbers i find for them are active, and i cannot contact anybody to even complain about the crappy service. I would not recommend hostmds.|

|Downtime with HostMDS is unacceptable, and as I write this my sites have been down for almost two days and I can't get any information from tech support.|
Complete waste of time and money. I strongly recommend finding another web host.

|My sites have been down for the last two weekends in excess of 24 hours each time. I would not recommend their shared hosting to anyone unless it's for a hobby site.|

|If you're looking for reliable services with great support - keep looking, you won't find it with HostMDS.|
Uptime is horrible, for the past week my site been down three times (about 24 hours each), during one these downtimes MySQL databases got damaged or whatever happened to it - I lost about 3 days of site and forums postings. I asked HostMDS support to restore it to the date the server went down; turns out they didn't have any backups. I guess their "once a day server backup" is a complete phony.
Tech support is horrible, even if they respond, most likely they will redirect you to someone else and it will take them a day or two to respond even to critical tickets.
Few days ago they suspended my account because I used WP-wall plugin for WordPress. The settings were set to minimum (about 30 seconds refresh rate), so the server wasn't overloaded and no harm was done by this script. So, instead of asking me to lower the refresh rate or asking me to remove this script they suspended my whole account; none of my sites worked for a day with the message that account is suspended, and I host quite a few websites for other people – my users started to panic, because they though I didn’t pay for the hosting, as it said to contact billing support, and that all their sites and information got lost. That was not a pleasant experience… To keep this story short - support is the meanest I ever seen, they probably never heard of phrase "customer is always right".
Stay away from this company. I curse the day they bought Hostingplex (the original company I used for the hosting).
