What our customers say

5-Star Reviews at Google and Facebook

Helpful and knowledgeable all the way through.

I met Ms Hana and her colleague at their office in Klang a while ago, and decided to change my domain to their registrar and to their email hosting. Ms Hana was very helpful and knowledgeable all the way through, as my old service provider in Europe was very difficult and unhelpful to assist in the change. Finally, we got it done. Then for several settings, I went into live chat with their support team, once even at 4.30am and it’s always a person there, not a bot!!! They were all very supportive, knowledgeable and helpful. I'm so glad I changed to ServerFreak. Thank you, Ms Hana, and thanks to the whole support team.
