They started out pretty well. Existing customers seem to like them, and the fact that their cheapest plan compares favorably to most other company’s upper-tier ones looked promising. Despite that, the fact that your renewal rates will rise over 200% is tough to stomach. Especially, when you consider the poor uptime and borderline lazy customer support.
