    I don't know what this Alex Coleman dude is talking about. Rad Web Hosting has the best support I've ever experienced. They are super helpful and hardworking. If these people that are posting negative reviews had a bad experience, it's most likely technology ignorance or they just flat out messed something up themselves.

    Very great hosting and servers. Have used for years and plan to continue on! Thanks Rad Web Hosting!

    We're a single server company that manages our box ourselves. We had to move to a new NOC in a pinch and we chose Rad Web Hosting. They were thorough and complete in the phase of learning their capabilities (their chat access is excellent), and they delivered 100% in what they said they offered. We had a new server shipped to them from Dell, they installed and provisioned immediately and turned the machine over to us ready to go with both IDRAC via VPN and Internet availability. Whenever we have had questions they have been thorough and prompt. In our >20 years of business, this is by far the best NOC we've been in.

    As kindly as I can say: got some really bad spam from these people and did a search and found this web hoster as a provider of them at the time. I am hoping this complaint will further facilitate ending this, spam harassment.I must update this review. I finally conquered this problem sometimes you just have to comp[lain enough about some things. Stay radical Rad Web.

    Very reliable and more helpful than big host companies I've used previously. Very glad to have discovered it about three years ago. I hope they continue to be supportive. The prices are good because they do not have increased renewal fees like almost everyone else.
