THE WORST HOST """"EVER""" PERIOD
OK. First off, all the reviews below this one might have some good opinion. But, I have been in the hosting and web development business for several years and let me just tell you this, trusting Manas Hosting on your web hosting needs is the BIGGEST mistake you can make.
I was with them through their initial seed stages and everything seemed fine for a while. But, they just couldn't handle the servers. They claim to have a very reliable system but that is all trash talk. In its initial stages, if you had a problem (which would be almost every 3-7 days), you could call up someone and talk to them personally to get it fixed. However, that is not the case now. You have to go through their support team who are incapable of comprehending even the "smallest" of issues. They do not have any knowledge of web hosting and speak like robots that are pre-programmed to answer only specific questions. Ask them anything a little more advanced and somehow the phone gets disconnected or you receive a simple reply "I will redirect the issue and it will be solved tonight". And tonight never arrives for them. Even a week later.
I also had a reseller account with them and hosted my clients' websites there (I am a web developer). My clients frequently complained of their emails not working and the surprisingly long downtimes. Their website claims to have 99.99% up time. This is not true.
They will lure you with LOW prices and HIGH specifications such as unlimited space and bandwidth. My sincere suggestion is to leave this behind and host your site with someone like Media Temple (my current host) or Aplus or 1and1. Go for someone with an international footprint and a NAME. Even if that means that you won't get 1TB of space. Trust me, for an average business website, 50-200 MB would suffice.
Choose your poison. I will change this review to a positive one if I notice SIGNIFICANT changes at Manas. Until then, even I am disappointed. I usually hate putting up bad reviews. I just can't help it this time (imagine how much I would have gone through).
