By the time I finished building my website, I had a headache from being hit over the head with so many upsells. What starts out as an annoyance quickly degrades into a very poor user experience. Homestead has no problem nickel and diming its users for standard features like adding a blog or donation form to you website. At the very least, Homestead should make it clear during the signup process that you’ll need a business account to build much of anything.
I have been using Homestead since 2001, their technology is behind the times and I am migrating all of my clients and their websites off to Bluehost with Wordpress. The technology is not HTML5 which if you do your research is important - your website needs to be responsive - so it automagically fits on whatever device the person is browsing on and Homestead does not use this technology and they do not plan on it - or let you use wordpress. They are too expensive when you consider you can have a hosting site for 100 a year plus use the latest technology from wordpress - which is what over 50% of the global websites are built on. No brainer - Homestead is a dinosaur who has not kept up with the times. Sad to say...
Pros : easy to use
Cons : Their email service is a joke - in the past 2 weeks - I have had my email bounced back and not received. ALSO this happened earlier this year and it was ongoing for a month - this time it will be an estimated 3 weeks before it is fixed... ridiculous!
