Globat, LLC. - Hostcue Editor Review
Editor: Hostcue Admin
Rating: 8

Company Review:
Globat was founded in 2001 and has already managed to prove themselves with their reliability and scalability. Globat understand that a great web host must provide a winning combination of generous web space, useful features and a signature customer service at a competitive price. Globat can manage to provide such tremendous features for such a low cost because they have the best infrastructure, network and good relationship with top end suppliers that could tremendously reduce their operating cost. Globat�s desire to direct attention to their client services and hardware, package sizes and low costs to customers are impressive.

The Good:
99.9% uptime, low prices, excellent features, easy setup, 24/7 support, 30-day money back guarantee, flexible payment methods.

The Bad:
No ASP or JSP support, no free setup
