"We were a customer of Midphase for 7 years. Slow speed was the only speed, and we were always calling about downtime. In fact, it seemed to be us who had to alert them to their own problems. They were always rebooting their servers or mysql. They never communicated when there was an issue. Midphase uses a server farm located in a different state, Utah we think. They promised months ago that they were moving to their own servers. Still hasn't happened. Their first line tech are mostly weak. We appeared more knowledgeable than their staff who were many times quick to argue. Several of our sites were hacked five-six months ago. We solved the problem. They were somewhat helpful as we stayed on their case. According to Supervisor Ken Fox, some hacker tried to gain access to our site again a few days ago. Their solution was to permanently banish us. We were the victim here. We've been in business 25 years. This is not how you repay loyalty! You ask why we stuck with them for so long, poor judgment and laziness on our part!"

"Midphase has many problems with their system. My passwords aren't working along with CPanel, and FTP. On top of that, they went ahead and just decided to switch my account to another server without me being aware of it. THEN, my mail was down for hours when I checked my site and they made me pay for all their mistakes with many important emails missed!"

"This review is simple: if you have a business website AVOID MIDPHASE.COM. My site goes down all the time, 1-2 per week. Customer service varies between being rude and clueless. They offer a 30 day $$ back guarantee but you won't find out they suck until after 30 days. Avoid midphase.com. I am in the process of leaving them right now, and I can't get until I can get away and then cancel my account -- sure, I'll lose all the $$ I give them (no refund after 30 days) but I don't care: that's how bad they suck."

"Ok.... I was reading the reviews on here and thought I would make a comment here as well... I have two unique accounts at MidPhase... They are on separate servers, but are both pro-phase plans. One account runs absolutely flawless! I think I only had one email outage that lasted a few hours over the past couple of years. The speed is good, and I have 6 sites hosted on that account. Whenever I have needed to make changes to the account, they were made immediately. Perfect service! My other account has alot to be desired. Email goes down at least once every couple months and lasts for 2 or 3 days. Server slows down at times. My two sites are constantly getting listed on the spamcop databases and blacklisted by major carriers (Verizon, Comcast) despite them being legitimate businesses with no spam. The spamassasin kills alot of good emails. I would say that it is pot luck I guess... If I were to just look at the reviews I would say that some people hate the service and some love it... I can honestly say for sure, pray that you get on one of the good servers... If not change hosts quickly...."

"I have been looking at other hosting company's on the market, by reading user reviews and so on. I have noticed a trend with Midphase reviews. It seems that the only people writing reviews of midphase is people that have had a bad experience with them. I have had my ups and downs with them, but overall they have been very helpful with any problem I have encountered. They answer every new ticket within an hour. I have never had to call them, so I can not comment on that. I'd rather use the ticket system anyway. I started off with shared hosting which was a great experience, until one of my sites started getting big, with lots of traffic, email and extremely large database, then I upgraded to a VPS. I love my vps and the freedom it gives me. Many problems arise on shared hosting from the high security standards which is necessary when you have lots of accounts on one server. This is for your protection. In fact it caused problems with the email on my big site and had to update that site to send mail out in a different way. Basically a poorly designed script using old school methods that midphase shared servers didn't work well with. I didn't understand at the time and was very upset, but now I understand why. Some people expect to much out of shared hosting plans and end up getting upset with the host, when its not the hosts fault. There are some things people need to know about midphase and where they stand today. Some people think midphase went down hill since 2006 which is partially right. You see the original owners of midphase started overselling their hosting in order to make their portfolio look better to potential buyers of the company to get more money in their pocket. Not the smartest thing to do, but it worked. They got bought out by UK2 Group, which is a london based hosting company that is highly trusted. This created a massive mess for UK2 Group once they aquired the company. In result you are seeing many bad reviews from people, because of the overselling. They are now starting to get things sorted out, with new upgrades and a migration to a new data center. They released a statement about the migration recently and are moving to Seattle. With this move they are moving all customer accounts to brand new dell servers and new networking hardware to improve service. This will greatly enhance the company and will put them on the top of most hosting company's once again. Over the past year you have been seeing the company go down hill, but really they are just leveling out from the overselling the previous owners were doing. The year prior and the year after the sell out is the reason for so many bad reviews and has caused many to leave Midphase in search of better hosting. But others just needed to upgrade to bigger accounts and didn't think they should have to. Since I have been there my server has went down 2 times, not counting other problems that were my fault. This is pretty good in my books. No matter where you host at you will encounter downtime at some point in time. What matters is how the host handles the situation and in my 4+ years with them they have handled every issue in a professional manner, and it has gotten even better since UK2 Group acquired the company. I was thinking of switching hosts a while back, and I'm grateful that I did not make the move like so many did."

"I'm a customer of anhosting, and so far I've been pretty satisfied with their overall service. Their uptime is great, It's 99.9%, I've only seen my site down 2 times for the past 7 months that I have been with them. Their cPanel is very slow at times, and connection through FTP doesn't work at times even though my site is up, but overall it's good. I was very disappointed by the MidPhase terms of service. One of the reasons I got this host in the first place was so that I could host my proxy, and there was no mention of no proxies, or the word proxy at all in the terms. But I had my site up for a month or so, and then they said that they don't allow proxies on Shared Hosting. I was very disappointed with that. I did not like their technical support/customer service, because every time I entered live chat with them, the rep just said that he/she "Put in a Ticket for me", which slowed me down, the response time is slow at times. But they did manage to straighten out any problem I had eventually. But the best is the price value for your money. You get a huge amount of space, bandwidth, and you can host 20 domains on one account. It's only $7 a month, and I haven't found anyone that even compares to them in this category."
