I have used many hosting providers over the years (since 1993), Westhost by far has had the most downtime. What ever issues they have they seem to have no interest in resolving them. I wish I could sue for incompetence for the lost clients I've suffered. I at least feel the obligation to save someone else from this frustration. Keep looking!!

I'm a long time customer and am totally annoyed at this point. I'm trying to get a password reset for a client due to the recent breech at WH. I figured I'd wait till later since there were 20 people in line earlier.. WEll I started out at 11... That was 50 minutes ago.. Hey.. I like classical music but I'm going to puke my brains out if I hear another verse of Handel's Water music.. Crap, there's a whole symphony there and I've been hearing the same freaking 5 bars for the last 50 minutes.. And I'm only at number 5.. PEOPLE AT THE TOP NEED TO BE FIRED FOR THE HORRIBLE WAY THIS HAS BEEN HANDLED.. Not the folks on the phone.. THE OVERPAID VPS WHO DON"T UNDERSTAND THAT AN HOUR TO GET A PASSWORD RESET IS SIMPLY UNACCEPTABLE. Oh, and I tried the chat and kept getting disconnected. I'm just hoping that my client didn't reset the password or I just wasted over an hour

We had about six months of uptime, unfortunately people have short memories so today’s outage will seem like yesterday and I expect more lost clients.

I apologize for the outage, I understand that it is frustrating and can assure you we are doing everything we can to resolve the issues as quickly as possible.
@cgmsys, as I mentioned in another post you posted regarding your frustrations with being on hold. We are all hands on deck with this issue. Everyone from upper management to those on the front lines. We sent a reset password link to all those that needed to reset their password.
Thank you for your patience and we will continue to do everything we can to make sure our clients are taken care of.

I have been with westhost for over 10 years and there have been ups and downs with the service but generally I have been happy. One of the things that I liked was the fast support response.
What has happened? Now I put in emergency tickets and no-one replies for days.
I've just started a live chat session and am being told that due to the high demand I should raise a ticket instead!!
Very frustrated and disappointed at the lack of response.
