Choose another host than Certified hosting, you cant trust them
Certified Hosting somehow did manage to mess up a shared server were I had several of my domains hosted, it was just not me that got affected, more webmasters too.
The worst part is that they didn't have backups of anything. They couldn't restore our websites.
I'm now trying to rebuild my sites at another host but it will take several weeks.
I will never host with Certifiedhosting ever again and if you're hosting with them right now. Make sure you download backups to your computer because you will need them when they mess up again.
Biggest Pro: The price
Biggest Con: Backups didn't exist! My sites are gone!
Solid, reliable hosting for grownups
I selected Certified after having a bad experience with BlueHost, who changed their AUP to prohibit any kind of "profanity." I run six blog-based sites, two of which are adult oriented (not porn) and I don't have the time nor the inclination to moderate all posts and comments for naughty words. I don't need adult-specific hosting, just one that allows occasional adult content, and Certified provides this at very competitive rates.
I had a little issue with Certified at the beginning because I neglected to redirect one of my unused domain names to another site, so their automated system assumed I was using it for file storage or some other prohibited activity. A quick call to customer service and a minor tweak on my end fixed this. Otherwise, I haven't had to contact customer service at all. Uptime has been good, and my site response time has been a bit slow on occasion but not often enough to be an issue. Certified uses a standard cPanel interface and Softaculous script installation, which is not as pretty as SimpleScripts but works well.
