I must say. I have been with Siteground, Dreamhost and one other I can’t remember. I had problems all the time. I ran into Frank here and I talked to him and told him my needs. GC Solutions has went above and beyond my expectations! I really haven’t had a problem since. When you have a question, Frank is right there to help you. Thanks for everything Frank! GC Solutions has met my every need. In fact, I moved all of my sites over to GC Solutions and haven’t had any problems since.. Grade A Service, Grade A Support.
Hi all, I am another happy customer of GC Solutions. I am the administrator of Reman Forums. I was previously with Monte Carlo hosting which was also very good, but my board outgrew the package that I was on. I got what I felt was a much better value from G.C. Solutions. So far, (about 6 months) the service has been outstanding! Also, I believe my forum is running faster on the G.C. Solutions server. The reliability has been 100%. I agonized over who to go with, and I am glad I went with G.C. Frank has been great, and has been very quick to help me out when a problem has come up. He has even helped me with problems with my forum that had nothing to do with him or his service. He has gone out of his way to help me keep my forums up and running.To sum it up, G.C. Solutions has given me a great hosting package with excellent service If you are looking for an excellent host, G.C. Solutions will not let you down.
I found and switched to GC Web Hosting due to some reviews I had read. My existing host became a problem and I was desperate to move my site to a host that was reliable without a high price tag. GC Web Hosting made the switch painless and downright easy. Within a day the site was back up and running smoothly. In fact, things are working so well I don’t even think or worry about my host now -I know the site is up and running. I cannot recommend GC Web Hosting strongly enough. The value you get for your dollar is without question.
GC Solutions will have been my web host for a year in March. It has been the best web host that I have ever used, and I have been through a few in my time on the net. Frank is always there if you have a problem, he is always willing to help and never loses his patience with a customer even though some of us must drive him a little mad at times. He certainly is a one in the million web host and the servers are fast and reliable just like their owner, if you choose GC Solutions to host your web site/forum then you can’t go wrong. I look forward to another year of stress free hosting with GC Solutions in 2009!
Frank saved our website from lousy hosting, poor service, and complete crap customer service (siteground). I am completely satisfied with the service GC solutions offers. Great tech help and answering newb questions without ridicule was another added bonus. How about we talk affordability? Siteground offers unlimited bandwith/discspace Blah blah blah for $7 a month…What they don’t tell you is they have very limited CPU usage limits, Your website grows, and they shut the lights off, demand $90 a month to turn it back on. Can you say bait and switch? GC solutions gives us plenty of bandwidth, disc space, and CPU usage for $15 a month…With NO hidden surprises. Thank you Frank for making running a forum fun again.

Running 2 large scale events a year requires a massive web presence. Before we signed up with G.C. Solutions we kept running into bandwidth and hosting difficulties. G.C. Solutions has streamlined all of our web and hosting needs. Not only is running our competition registration system flawless, so is our live scoring, live streaming and media. This has helped us tremendously to focus less on the web deployment, and completely on our competitions. Thanks to G.C. Solutions for the amazing support. The Shakedown Series Team
Our move will never be termed ‘trouble free’. We have a huge database that gave Frank some trouble when he tried to get it installed on the new server. Even after he managed to get it up and working, we had some character set problems that took several tries to get resolved. On top of that, we also tend to run our forum by committee, which means that Frank was having to deal with THREE people from our end while trying to get the forum moved over for us. He was endlessly patient with us under circumstances that a lot of people would have found exasperating. I cannot think of anything that I would want improved. Rates are VERY reasonable, up time exceptional, server speed is good, and your response time on the rare occasion that there is a problem is outstanding. You are proactive about improvements, security, and doing everything possible to make sure that one site’s overload does not cascade and affect anyone else on the server.(Thank you, Frank!)
I have my site with CG Solutions as well and it has been amazing! Since changing hosts in Feb., I have had NO service interruptions and I am notified a minimum of 48hrs before any updates. Frank is amazingly professional and easy to talk to. He has never once made me feel stupid for a “Dumb question” and is always quick to reply. I HIGHLY recommend his Hosting service!
I started my gaming clan on site ground a year ago. But I was plagued with slow servers, and eventually started getting mysql database errors. Then I read about GC Solutions, and the fact that they do not over sell their servers, and I switched. My site, has been on GC servers since about January 2010. In a word, superb. My site is faster than ever, I am not plagued by errors, tech support is top notch and replies at all hours, every day. They are also very patient with people when it comes to asking “stupid” questions. They even went so far as to move my site from siteground to their server for free. Sure, I don’t have “unlimited” band width or storage space, but that is because they don’t over sell their servers. “Unlimited” services is nothing but over hyped marketing, and in fact diminishes your experience by creating the problems I mentioned above. So, each site on their server gets their fair share, which is plenty. This keeps the server from being bogged down and my site snappy. I have only run up against a band width limit once, but they offer extensions for a very modest fee. I look forward to years of service with GC Solutions, and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to run an SMF based site.
While my forums aren’t huge comparatively, we’ve been around for about 5 years using SMF and i was on netfirms (ugh!) and after numerous problems with them and getting warnings about cpu usage spikes (even on their business class account!) i decided to look around for another host.. I came to this forum and saw a number of positive reviews for GC and took a chance and emailed Frank.. I spoke to him about various portions of migrating my forums and the other 4 domains i have to GC. I’m a veteran of the Internet support world and he was awesome, he knows his stuff, he got back to me quick and covered all my questions. I opted to make the move and got my site and forums moved over.
The move went as well as a migration could and there was some DB issues, mainly Netfirms kept timing out on exports of our DB and with Frank’s help we saved as much as we could and got the forums up and working with only missing a window of PM’s that were lost, everything else has been up and running for 2 months now..
my users love the speed and the responsiveness. We have only about 300 active users and i still opted to go with the Factory Server solution as i want to be able to grow and have a solid scalable solution.
Frank has been wonderful and handled every need I’ve had with regards to webhosting and SMF forum hosting. I cannot recommend GC Web hosting enough! they just excel. I couldn’t be happier. I’ve got 5 domains with him now and i don’t see us ever needing to move unless he closes up shop
