Peter Han
San Diego, California
Hosted with Lunarpages for 2.5 years

Not knowing much about web hosting, I decided to use Lunarpages to host my business website because my father used it for his projects. I am very happy I did. I remember one instance when I didn’t understand what was going on with my site. I emailed Lunarpages support one time during the night and within 15 minutes, I had a helpful response. It was unbelievable customer service–service I’ve never seen with any company–and I have never had a regret since.

I‘ve been using Lunarpages for half a decade now, ever since I taught myself HTML. Since 2005, I’ve built dozens of websites for myself, my friends, and most recently for my company, and EVERY TIME I have encouraged them to use Lunarpages to host their websites. I’m a novice coder, and a don’t make a ton of money which is why I love Lunarpages. Their interfaces are easy to use and the service is dollar for dollar more affordable and reliable than most others. I’ve never had a problem with my websites that were hosted with Lunarpages. So I’m just showing some love! Here is a photo of my home office (or as my girlfriend calls it “The Command Center”). Check out the wallpaper on my screens! Thanks Lunarpages! You guys ROCK!
