Customer Testimonials

i have been with glow host since June 2007. Their customer service is phenomenal. I started with a shared server and now have a dedicated. I have 4 vbulletin forums, one of them is very large and successful, and at times has 10,000 plus visitors a day. Without glowhost I do not think my forum would be doing near as well as it is... - Paul
