What our customers say

"The last few years have been excellent for my website; my traffic has increased tenfold! I know right - happy days. But with more traffic comes more hosting requirements and sometimes more headaches. Dan and the team at Prodigi have been right there with me every step of the way. They tailor options to suit my needs, keep my site fast but affordable and politely answering my idiot tech questions. I could not recommend Prodigi any more highly. Excellent service, exceptional communication and no more headaches! As a blogger, I could not be happier with the service I have received. "

My Kids Lick the Bowl

"Since switching to Prodigi, my sites are faster and I have the peace of mind knowing that my sites are being monitored in case they go down. Dan and his team have saved me more times than I can count. Just yesterday, an automated update caused my site to shut down at 1 am. Dan caught it right away, before I noticed, and got the site back up and running before I woke up and before it interrupted any of my customers. Not only has Dan and Prodigi given me the peace of mind that my customers will never experience a service interruption, but they've also improved overall site performance, and are always willing to provide advice whenever I have a web-related question."
