I have had the best experience with Host Gator, particularly with their customer service... 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and I have never waited more than two minutes for a live operator. I currently have a Reseller Account and a VPS Account, and both are fabulous. Host Gator's live chat is brilliant;  Kudos to you Host Gator!!!!  I plan on hosting with you exclusively.  GREAT STUFF!!!

I previously had my site with a very large hosting firm (whose name I will not reveal) and had very negative experiences with them.  System outages, slow response to technical problems, slow server speed etc.  I finally had it and began searching for a new company to transfer to.  I was extremely nervous and could not afford to lose any more business but I finally found Host Gator and was very impressed with what I saw.  The move went super smooth for me and the team at Gost Gators went above and beyond in helping me transfer my site over to their servers.  On top of that, the speed is much better than with my old host.  I needed a special request- hosting a logo securely for my PayPal checkout... this was no problem for Host Gator.  I want to say a big thank you to Jesse and everyone at the Host Gator team.  They have been incredibly helpful and have gone above and beyone the call of duty in helping me transfer my domain over to Host Gator. Needless to say, I think the entire team at Host Gator is phenomenal when it comes to customer service.  I would highly recommend anyone considering hosting to go with them.

It has only been two weeks but so far things are excellent. I like that when I receive a voicemail, it is transcribed and sent to my email address. Also, I am an attorney and do not like for everyone to have my cell phone number and be called at all hours of the day and night for free legal advice. RingCentral solves this by having my office telephone number show up when I call from the app. My only complaint was I purchased the least expensive phone they offered because I really don't need all the bells and whistles, and it was too light to stay in the stand when I touched it. Upgraded and am waiting for new one to arrive. I have called support several times and each time I could understand the person who helped me, and they insisted on staying on the phone with me until they had completely walked me through the issue I needed to know how to set up.

I've used RC for four years to serve a medical practice. Everything has gone just fine and according to expectations. I recently needed to replace an on-site PBX at a church (12 stations) and decided RC would be a good option. Six of the 12 stations had to be analog over existing TWP phone wiring - including an elevator phone. There was some problems getting the sales person to understand the application (the five analog stations were really just emergency phones in school classrooms, a kitchen, etc.) and that I didn't need full VoIP features for those stations. Anyway, looking online at the Cisco ATA devices for this application was important - as was asking to speak to an engineer who could answer detailed questions. For example, the RC firmware for the ATAs disables the second phone port - so one ATA per phone is needed. Ordering the equipment through RC simplified things (I did ask them if they could meet Internet pricing for the VVX 150 phones and the ATAs - they came very close). Cutover to the new system was smooth and everything is working as planned. Now, you can probably guess that I worked in this field and knew the right questions to ask, etc. All I'm going to say is that RC delivers a good product but you have to be sure you know your application and can work with (and perhaps through/around) the sales person to get your configurations defined. This is not your parents' telephone system. Price is fair - especially given its reliability and avoidance of on-premise equipment maintenance fees.
