Customer Service Support
Codero offers its customers several methods to contact the company. Customers can receive help via email support tickets, phone, or online chat. All customer support agents are based in the United States and agents are available 24 hours per day, seven days per week, and 365 days a year. There are mixed reports from customers about the quality of this service. More reports exist than not of slow, impatient, or unprofessional customer service interactions with Codero. These are anecdotal and cannot be confirmed by BestCompany.com, but it is notable that these complaints are available from a number of reliable sources.
No Shared or VPS Hosting
Codero has many options for web hosting, but do not have any options for shared or VPS hosting. Without these options, customers are greatly limited and may have to find services through another web host provider. We would like to see Codero extend their services to include shared and VPS hosting options. We would also like to see a money-back guarantee as this is standard in the industry.
