I've had such a bad experience with this hosting company that I can not but share it with everybody so it doesn't happen to other people.
You can see the whole account of what happened here:
On how CWIHosting screwed my sites for a week

In brief: CWIHosting just kicked me out one nice day without any previous warning, and then they held my data from me so I could not move to another hosting company (I made the mistake to keep my database backups in the server). Instead, they proposed that I pay 8 times more to get a dedicated server with them, as the only way for me to get access to my data (and even to my e-mail messages!).

This is definitely not a professional behaviour and can render your site anavailable for well over 4 days! and cause you a lot of trouble and desperation. So my advice is: do not hire any services from

Ive had similar experiences with some hosts.

Sometimes you can contact them with a rough draft of a review you will post everywhere if they dont give you your data back, works for me every time.

Does he need to have a number of posts to post in a certain forum? If so, he's doing that. His posts are pointless.
