How Nexcess outshines alternative hosts
Nexcess is where the experts host. Support, speed, and scalability are why 500,000+ sites and stores choose Nexcess managed hosting.
Best host out there!The support provided for Magento is the best out there. I have worked with a dozen or so hosts and none of them provide the in depth knowledge of the platform and how it interacts with the server.

From the Worst Customer Service to the BESTAfter probably the worst customer service experience EVER, with another WP hosting provider we now have had the BEST customer service experience while getting our website back up and going. Having the ability to talk to a human direct, no chat, no email was a huge plus. Also, they listened and in less than 30 minutes we have "liftoff". Highly recommend Liquid Web / Nexcess for your hosting needs. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR :)

Nexcess is awesome!Working with Nexcess has been excellent. If ever there is a problem, support is readily available and very knowledgeable. I've not run into any situation yet that they have not been of great assistance. We have switched from Magento to WordPress with no issues.
