    I used MacHighway for many years, mostly because I did not want to take time to find a better provider and when there were not problems it would work for months on end. But whenever they did not work, it was always considered to be the user rather than technical issues with the service.

    I have used Macs since the early 90`s and done all my own work on them, so know the Mac better than most, including most MacHighway support, so the default to user failure always galled, especially since the problem always turned out to be on their side.

    The most recent was spam. I started getting loads of it pretty suddenly with several addresses and none with 2 others. Their SpamAssassin did not really help. Tried their fancy spam service for $6.49/month and it fixed most, but I could not interact with it to see that it was not filtering good messages and now my price was 11.50/mo. Many support emails, and some of the guys really tried, but within their culture, the user is always at fault so it got irritating. Finally I was told I had one month left of service. I was fired. I was costing them too much time for something they would/could not fix.

    I setup with Little Oak, who`s support to date is quite knowledgable. I have a handful of spams/week with the exact same email addresses and SpamAssasin set at 10 (less aggressive than default) whereas, with it set at 3-4 on Machighway I had 100 or more spams a day from 3 addresses.

    Still my fault at MacHighway, I am so glad they stimulated me to finally move.

    Worst hosting site known to man. Techs are rude, the people are most unhelpful. Our site was hacked (it was a word press site), and our domain was spamming. They took the site down, which I understand. When someone went to our site it said it was "SUSPENDED". We got our webmaster on the issue immediately. They refused to let us log into Cpanel so we could access the files to resolve the issue.

    Essentially, they took us down 3 different times with only an email as notice, not even to my business email to a back up personal email account.

    Then they kicked us off the site, we asked for access to get a copy of the data and they refused. Asshats! 34% of our business comes from the website. They were unhelpful, unprofessional, just absolute jerks! Do NOT recommend anyone using them. They`ve done the same thing to a couple of clients we referred to them. We won`t be referring our clients to them any more.

Their above tools are required by every client in order to provide optimal protection to their websites. Really these tools are great as I am feeling very confident because my data is safe and so everything.

    •Uptime guarantee- The provider offers 99% uptime on my website. The company understands the importance of their client’s website and their trust on them and accordingly they take their actions and credit our account for the hiring of complete month’s service.

The staffs is very efficient and knowledgeable, they have vast amount of all the required info and answers of all your queries whether simple or complicated ones. The company is having community forums, phone and e-mail support for their clients and by all this they definitely satisfy their customers a lot.

    •Support to the Mac users- If you are using the hosting services of this company or a customer, and then you don’t need to ask their customer care staff also, as their online support is available for their clients 24 hrs a day on their website.

    The company is very good. I like their services a lot. It offers wide website builders or developers which are very easy to use on all their web hosting packages. I Sign up for their package and avail their installer which works on just one click in order to get Joomla, Drupal, Concrete 5, Word press on my website.As I am a fresher and I do not understand so much about the websites, I don’t know how to develop websites so, their easy site builder feature help me a lot and other people who don’t know much about the websites. With this feature, their customer and technical support both are perfect. Already their feature helps me a lot in building websites and with this, if I face any kind of issue then I just called them and they revert with the appropriate and satisfactory answers. So, overall I am very happy because with their great features I am getting their great level of support also.
