Scala Hosting User Satisfaction

    "Just migrated my web sites to managed cloud VPS with SPanel"

    I was struggling to decide if I should move from the Scala4 shared server to the new VPS with sPanel. Had to move about 40 client’s websites. Transfer went very well and it was free. There were some difficult outside settings in the DNS and other items with some of the websites, but all was solved in 10min. I can’t thank the support here from getting us through the new stuff. They responded quickly and were able to make the dns changes that we were struggling with. Answered our questions very quickly and even when a setting was not exactly what we thought..they responded so fast to make it work for us. Moving from one server to another and also to adapt to a new control panel… could not have gone better because of the help we got from the Scala Support team.

    Yes, recommend

    "Scala Hosting is great"

    Usually within minutes, my problems with Scala Hosting are solved, no joke! If anything needs to go to a tech, it’s 15 minutes at most for a posted ticket. Their control panel called spanel is very similar to cpanel but it’s free and much better as it has Nginx for example.

    Highly recommended!

    Yes, recommend

    "Starting well but not good now"

    Been using Scalahosting for about a year. Starting well, great support always helping and great prices.

    Now recently they’ve increased their prices by quite a bit and support has IP blocked me from using their chat even though I was never rude. When I’ve bypassed the IP block and asked for simple help about pointing a domain to another IP they claim this is impossible since the other IP uses a different nameserver which to me makes no sense.

    Will be looking for a new host for my business now.

    No, don't recommend
