  • As of our observations, this provider was fairly ok to try in 2018. They didn’t have the best HRank rating (4.2 and the 143d position on our list for 2018).
  • However, their uptime charts for the past 6 months look mostly fine. There were just several cases of downtime (88% was the worst of them), the rest of the period was not bad.
  • HawkHost’s response time from their Shared IPs was not the fastest – around 1,000ms.
  • However, we’ve seen worse results. And this didn’t seem to be a problem with the gradually increasing number of customers (=domains).
