I used migration service on their 7 day trial. They first migrated to a staging environment where it all appeared to migrate fine. They then transferred the staging site to the live environment. I ran a page speed test and found the page took more than twice as long to load vs my original host. I then discovered that the migration from the staging site to the live environment did not update all the image and internal page and post URLs. Every page was linking out to the staging site. This meant I had to manually go through each page and correct ever image and internal link. All this before the end of the 7 day trial.

Saurabn Helped get my new domain up and going. I was having an issue with my cloudflare settings on my account and he was able to guide me through everything that needed to be changed. Thanks again!

Using it for second year now. Great experience.. very fast reply customer service. Best VPS and very affordable🙌

Even without me being a customer, Nestify extended techical support to diagnose a problem arising on another platform. That's how to win customers, and build a solid reputation.

I would go for any cheap shared hosting but not Nestify. They have excellent servers but completely spoiled the business with the incompetent support team. They could not make my site live even after 2 days. They will reply to your chat after 15-20 minutes, and in the end, there is no solution. Completely useless support team but the best hosting infrastructure. Thanks

I bought a wordpress site hosted on Nestify, I wanted to access the DNS settings but couldn't do it within the platform. Contacted support for help - they were fast to respond but couldn't help me access the DNS settings. After that my site went down and they couldn't understand why it did, they just told me to point the DNS records to their address in my domain registrar but that didn't work either. It has been a few days of me following up with them trying to resolve the issue but just getting the same response - DNS is not pointing to us, even though I did point it manually per their instructions... Thus, I decided to host my site on another hosting provider, where I have full control of all the settings. Unfortunately I have lost some of the installed themes & plugins so I need to do a lot of work from scratch. I am currently Trying to cancel my subscription from Nestify as I won't be using their services anymore. I say "trying to cancel" since in their platform there is no option to manage or cancel your subscription and support suggested I open a ticket. I did and had to follow up in 5 days and also create another ticket, both of which are "Being Processed".

Good support

Our site fell over and Saurabh patiently and intelligently took every possible step to address the issue, and was able to provide a fix.

Completely dropped the ball when site was hacked. I asked them to restore the site to a backup before it was hacked, they just restored it to a hacked version backup. When I told them that is not the site, they argued and said it was. Last I checked, a pediatrician's website doesn't look like some random agency services webpage. They went radio silent after I pointed that out. Thankfully, I had enough experience and foresight to have a clean backup file on my local machine, and used that to restore the site on a new host. I used Nestify for years for various small clients. I since switched to Digital Ocean and never looked back. Do not use this hosting service if you hold any value for your web content.

My site was not working. On reporting to support team they were able to identify quickly that it is infected with some malware. They removed it and resolved the issue in no time.

These people create more problems than they fix. I switched from WP-Engine to Nestify but it's been nothing but constant issues. 1. The migration staff didn't migrate the site properly from the start, I had to manually fix a lot of issues because usually the staff doesn't have a clue on how to fix things. 2. There would be a constant loading issue with my website so instead of fixing it, they just suggested random things which negatively impacted my SEO and then they took zero responsibility for it. 3. Today was the final straw for this review...they rolled out a CDN update that doesn't support special TLDs. What do they think they did first? They blamed me instead of figuring it out. They always blame the customer first before getting off their butt and fixing it. The only support staff that actually knows anything is Ravi. The other two just break your site and blame you for nestify issues. UPDATE (a week since I made the original review): Something else broke on their side, AGAIN! Error during session start; please check your PHP and/or webserver log file and configure your PHP installation properly. Also ensure that cookies are enabled in your browser. session_write_close(): write failed: No space left on device (28) session_write_close(): Failed to write session data (files). Please verify that the current setting of session.save_path is correct (/var/lib/php/sessions)

I recently migrated 7 sites to a new Nestify account. The experience was seamless and whenever I had a question, it was answered promptly and correctly. I say I migrated, but really Nestify support did all of the heavy lifting. So far, I've switched 3 different clients to Nestify and in each case, I've been glad I did! Their prices are great and the support is unmatched.

I was having an issue setting up my account so I emailed support at 11:12pm last night (New years eve). I was shocked when I got a response from a human 3 minutes later @ 11:15pm. This is almost unheard of and I haven't even given them a dollar yet, I was activating the free trial. Anyone thats been around web development knows how painful it can be working through issues with hosting support. This alone is enough for me to give 5 stars.

Customer Support at Nestify is the best I have experienced in my 10 years of website development. Recently, one of our clients had his site shut down because the host (not Nestify) had installed a new anti-virus software without informing their clients. They installed the software on a Friday night, and the site was inaccessible by Saturday morning. Support over the weekend was nonexistent. By Tuesday the site was back up, but edits were still blocked. Contrast that experience with Nestify support. They are available whenever they are needed. They are quick to respond and helpful regardless of the question or need. A transcript of the conversation always arrives in my inbox, and the past chats are accessible from the chat box on my dashboard. Unfortunately, they don't offer the Windows servers my client needs or we would have migrated the site last weekend. Trust me, Nestify support is the absolute best in the business.

I want to give a negative star to nestify. Server performance is never stable and super slow taking 75sec to load the site. The actual site load time is 3 Sec. Support response time is 1 hour. and they will never find the issue. they will restart the server, clear the cache, and tell you now it's working fine. Suppose you are professional and using a fully optimized woocommerce store. If you run ad campaigns you will lose your money time and effort. I will suggest you never go with nestify.

Awesome support! Saurabh was there all through the account setup process and there was not a single moment when I felt like abandoned during the onboarding and getting started. Keep up the good work buddy. I recommend to everyone looking for the Managed WordPress Hosting. No other service provider matches

Update review Sites were down daily, SSL problems, and worse of all I found out via chat they are using digital Ocean to store data when their was a DO outage that took down websites they host. They also are doing something to make speed tests perform better as any website they host cannot be testing on Pingdon. Avoid this scam hosting. I was on their medium plan too

EDIT(12 Nov'22): Reply to the response from Nestify at the end. They can "fire a customer" 😀 if you expose their fraud. Good to know! Existing and new customers, beware before handing your website to them to be held as a hostage later! (Remove spaces from links below, TP doesn't allow links!) I started with Nestify in Jun'22 and their CEO Vishal Deshpande was the one who sold me the plan. The entire infrastructure is crude compared to other providers but I thought since I have contact of the CEO, it would be handy in case of any escalation. Was promised a dedicated server with so-called Hetzner 16core, 128 GB Ram. I paid for the plan and I was shocked to see that my website was on Digital ocean with half the config promised! I escalated that to the CEO and it was renamed as whatever config was promised! As simple as that! I still maintained faith. There were frequent server downtimes. On every downtime we had to put money down the drain on the marketing campaigns. Many times it was server error, most of the other times the website was damn slow! And I have to justify every time that website is slow! The CEO could not even solve the wp-cron not running issue for more than a month, everytime my website had 100k plus jobs in queue! due to this many internal stuff was not working frequently like analytics and external integrations. I had to research on my own to solve the problem on their end. Customer support is another piece of joke. I asked the CEO to copy one of my websites and they had no clue which one they copied and which one they deleted. You open one site from browser and it opens the other one! Nobody has any idea about anything. It's like high-schoolers were appointed to run the show during their spring break! Frustrated with this, I put the server on monitoring using market-standard services like statuscake, pingdom and freshping. The services clearly showed increasing server response times and when I spoke to vishal on this, to my shock he says that we do not "support" services like statuscake and freshping! The guy doesn't even understand server response time, APDEX and is running a sham and scam of a server business! Says, he doesn't "support" discussions related to server response times! Even Google pagespeed score had fallen over 60% but no, the guy lives in his own wonderland! And then the standard no-brainer response: "Your website is getting too bulky, that's why!" I moved to, overnight. No point banging head with a nincompoop (who is the damn CEO of the army!) The server response times on Rocket went down by over 30 TIMES for ALL pages, OVERNIGHT! (Graph link below!) Current server response time with Rocket is between 40-60ms. With Nestify the avg was north of 2800ms! The day I moved, it went up as high as 6000ms! Don't waste your time/money/effort/energy here. I regret having wasted so much time on them. They are simply not worth it. The lies, pretensions, falsehoods and rudeness to top it all, is just too much of a show to watch while the business suffers. Just stay away! EDIT (Reply to response from Nestify): It's good that you've responded in your true character for the world to see. I'll ensure that this reaches even beyond here 🙂 1) Ok, shoving facts first. Before scoring the website from a far-off location where we don't even sell! you should've applied some brains that such fraud does get exposed. Below are GTMetrix scores of the home page and the bulkiest of our product page. Both are Grade A! Don't look at the LCP, it'll give you nightmares! It is the SAME website I moved to! Now, take a printout of these scores, roll the paper thick, and shove it in a safe place where the sun doesn't shine! Home: https:// /QKazYrH31RAL (Remove spaces) Product: https:// /_3fpe5k4Tl3t (Remove spaces) 2) Here's more to shove. The graph ( https:// /CA13lOp7HPvU (Remove spaces)) of the Server response times (educate your CEO on what this is!) measured on freshping for the Admin page (which does not even get cached) when it was on Nestify and after movement to Your junk server had response times touching 7000ms! On rocket, this is an avg of 50ms! Now take a printout of this graph as well, and.. well you know! 3) Educate your CEO on how cron works before making a joke of yourself! If you send email to 100k people, 100k actions are NOT created! Laughable, cringeworthy and yet so proud to be incompetent 🙂 4) Show me where I asked to change CDN and caching. Shameless lies and fraud claims, as expected! 5) Now coming to the CEO: Well, the CEO was the very salesman who contacted me to sell the plan. And now you say he was troubled to support the pathetic server he sold! Wow, so cute. Ask the CEO to stop selling junk first! (4k character limit. Thank trustpilot that I can't bash you more!)

I have used several hosting providers in my past like Arvixe, Bluehost and Godaddy. is far too easy to host a website. The customer service very excellent compared to other providers. I really appreciate their quick response to my questions any time whether its day or night. The management of hosting using the user interface is very simple and easy to navigate. I'm really excited to host my sites with I'm 100% satisfied.
