    Netfirms was a great company until they were bought by EIG (Endurance International Group). Their products and service went into the toilet so quickly that I figured that EIG was just trying to kill competition. Now, whenever I am looking for a host, I first check to make sure that they are not owned by EIG.

    I`ve been managing multiple wordpress and html sites on Netfirms since about 2005 - all low budget non-profit sites. If I have a new client on another server I`ll only take them on if I can migrate the site to Netfirms. I`ve had enough with other service providers who have untrained staff compared to Netfirms excellent support staff. Not sure about one site but very reasonable price for the quality of service on multiple sites. 10/10 every year from me.

    From last nine years, I was connected with this provider Netfirms. I found them excellent. When you get your domain registered with them, they usually offer WhoIs privacy at free of cost and an excellent file manager. Their level of customer as well as technical support was very quick and user-friendly. To manage your domains, their web interface was innate and worked properly. They offer very good coupons and sales but now I heard the news that the company was being purchased by other company and due to this, their performance deteriorates.

    •Without providing any notice in advance, file manager was taken by them for those who did not subscribed to their web hosting services. This issue occurs with me and when I asked them for the same, they told me that I am having domain only, thus I don’t required to access the file system. I told them that to manage my files based on .htaccess; I required accessing the system. And then they offer FTP access in a limited qty.

    •Renewal rates and fees for WhoIs privacy was increased by them without any notification. When bill was received by me, I called their technical support and one of their rude supporting staff informed that “We will always follow the same way as long as you’ve been with us”. Netfirms was a very good company and my exp with the provider is also good.

    •I want to renew my domains as all of my domains got expired. I called them for this and they revert back to me that may be my auto renew was cancelled by me, I said them no. But they do not trust me and said that if you want to argue then please contact to our legal department. They don’t left any option with me except that I have to renew my domains with the help of them, for this I have to pay them a fees and I also wait for them for three months for its transfer. After passing of three months, even I renewed all my domains but still half of them got expired and I have the receipts too. I was unable to access them in order to manage them.

    Since 2004, I was connected with Netfirms. Several no. of websites were hosted by me on my domain and I did not face any major issues yet and yes if there is any minor issue then all get resolved soon via different modes. In the last 1 year, their applications such as scripts, word press, mojo, weebly, new mail customer and back office services were updated by them and thus I also got the opportunity by which my services and thus the database of my customers also upgraded by me. Highly recommended Netfirms to all those who are searching for the affordable web hosting providers and who offers tools which are low in prices and met the needs of the small and medium size businesses.

    From last several years, Netfirms was used by me for hosting small website and e-mail. When I select the provider for this purpose, they were Canadian, but now netfirms and one larger company based at US got merged which disappoints me a lot. Good thing is that I never face the problem of downtime of server in the last 4-5 years and as my needs were reticent, I do not face issues which other reviewers may have. Whenever I called them for their support, they respond in a very proper manner, their staffs was so intelligent, qualified and experienced, they were able to answer all the queries very quickly. But now I am changing to other web host because I want to transfer my websites to a dedicated server. But from my exp, I would like to recommend the provider.

    Earlier Netfirms was consider as a great web hosting company but these days something got wrong with them. Recently I face an issue in which my website becomes un-accessible if it is view through 3g wireless or other services. In the first year I did not face this issue but now-a-days I am facing this issue again and again. Some people are complaining that they cannot access my website through wirelessly and wifi, even I tried to access it through 3g in the last 1 month but unfortunately I cannot. So, I reach the customer care of the company but they said that your website is working well, there was no issue. Then I asked them to plz help me so they asked for some of the info, doc. I was very patient and as per their need I submit them all the info and screenshots, give them a call several no. of times but at the end no solution, problem remain as it is.
