Only time I have had to contact their C.S. is when they locked the account due to non-payment. They never sent us an email, or letter, or a call to tell us that the Credit card on the account (that was set to auto renew) expired…Person told me they post notices about the account to the “Inbox” thing when u log into the account area of their website. We never access that and had no idea. I just edit their website via Expression Web. VEry put off about that. Also, I do not recommend their email. It claims to have “Virus Protection Enabled” but they often get obvious spam emails with .zip attachments that are viruses. Gmail(and pretty much every other email service I have used) detects and block such things.

Supported server-side programming languages, and of course limitations. Not only the usual space and bandwidth, but also database limitations. Some hosts set a limit on, for example, the size of your mysql database – which you’ll soon hit if you have a busy site with lots of articles, comments and plugins that relies on a database.
