I had a website with Homestead for over 7 years. I have tried to cancel several times and told it was taken care of. To no avail, debit card has continued to be charged at almost $40.00 a month. My business has been closed for 3 years at this point. Supposedly, it has been handled and closed..... Horrible!

We attempted to cancel. They gave us a run around and would not cancel. They told us that we had to put a stop payment through the bank. We just learned that they are now attempting to bill us by changing the name they use. This is not only bad service. This is unethical. Highly recommend not to use them.

Review by Tyse2 years ago
I have used Homesteads basic service for 3 years where I built my own website and they hosted and it was OK, although they did nothing to promote my placement. IncJanuary 2018, I signed up for their deluxe service to make my website mobile friendly and promote placement to the first page at a cost of $380 a month. They redesigned the whole site. It is now May and the site just went live and it has been a disaster from start to finish. Their web designers do not know what they are doing and do not listen to your requests. Something as simple as being able to call my office by clicking on the phone number doesnt work and the link for new customer inquiries is also dead. The formatting does not fit on the page, they lost vital information from my original site, including my customer reviews. it is a mess. I am ready to put in a BBB complaint to get my money back.

Homestead's business practices are despicable. NEVER reserve a domain name through them. I am a developer and wanted to move a domain name to another hosting company. They are making it impossible and wasting hours of my time. Their compliance team refuses to send any real information about the status of my request. Instead, every email from them is exactly the same... an extremely complicated and misleading explanation of their process. I send in the information that it seems like they are requesting and just get the same response back. So I call customer service who regurgitate the same message and then say that they can't control what the compliance department does because they are a different department! I can't talk to anyone in the compliance department and they will not respond to emails with actual information like, I received your documentation... it is satisfactory... or I need this as well. Nothing! They are scam artists.

Legitimate site owned by Intuit, Inc. My experience with this web site builder was frustrating, and it is difficult to cut ties with it.
Legitimacy of sites created here is not guaranteed.
Review by Jordice4 years ago
I have been a customer of Homestead website builder for 12 years. Their product served me well for many years. However, in recent years, I have noticed a dramatic decrease in product quality and the service rendered at Homestead. I am also a user of WordPress.org. through 1&1 for another website. As an example of the frustration I routinely experience with Homestead, it sometimes takes 15 minutes to simple edit a sentence on Homestead due to their poor quality of product, extremely slow speeds and frequent disconnects. I do not experience these problems with WordPress.org through 1&1. The website I administrate on Homestead is related to football. As soon as the football season concludes, I will be switching my Homestead account to WordPress.org through 1&1.

Website builder - there is a free trial, but you must submit your credit card to get it.
Review by Splurty7 years ago
Official website owned and operated by Intuit Inc.
I have used this site and found the contents useful and informative.
Review by TeresaO Sultanova8 years ago
This domain or a related subdomain was detected as a confirmed phishing site in July 2011.
It was listed at www.phishtank.com where you can search for it for more details.
Beware of links that look like a bank, but actually send you to a different site, for example
is actually the site a0puwqtog2.com - nothing to do with Paypal
is actually bahost.eu and nothing to do with Paypal
is actually IDSTKOI.COM and nothing to do with Bank of America
is actually gtiitii.net and nothing to do with Bank of America
Phish sites may later be cleaned up and made safe again, but owners need to improve their security to prevent reinfection.

Review by Melnewnham10 years ago
I read the other reviews. I strongly dislike this company. (a division of intuit) They make you pay the entire fee upfront...almost $1200.00. They start the countdown of your year of hosting the day you sign-not the day you are up and running. They take FOREVER -if at all to get back to you with answers to questions. Sometimes they get back to you-totally ignoring the questions. Customer service is non-existant. For the fee collected some service is expected. They set-up your store front the way they want it, when they have provided 3 set-ups; ignoring what you say you want it to look like they tell you there is an additional charge for more services. Plus, even though your account has been paid in full they refuse to destroy your credit card information, They want to hold on to it to bill your account when the hosting fee is due for renewal-without asking you if you want to continue your service with them..I think its fraudulent and illegal. If they bill my card I will report to my card issuer the charge was not authorized by me.
I was looking to get my site up...they guy I spoke with told me if I signed right then it would be up & running for Christmas...that was in October, here we are in February and its still not up. I thought I was going to save money by going to them. Now its going to cost me double to go to a real web-site creator...a professional!
I hear their ads on the radio and cringe. I feel they pray on people who don't have the know how like myself with promises that are quickly forgotten once they have gotten your money.
For those of you that love them, I can't see it. if you were helped you are an exception, a family member, friend of an employee or someone who paid more for service. I am with the reviewer that gave them the lowest possible ranking ...no I rank them lower it's called ZERO! They don't make the scale.
Review by Roschany10 years ago
On a scale of 1 to 10...1 being the lowest ranking...www.homestead.com is a 1. The web site is down most of the time. I paid good money to establist a web site with this company and I can't even access my account a day later because Homestead is having some difficulties. I plan to request a refund.

I was disappointed with this site. I was fraudulently billed and then nobody
contacted me when I complained about it. It seemed like nobody even
Review by Nageena11 years ago
BEST website builder! If I can do it... anyone can! - Homestead.com is an awesome website builder. It was so much fun that I didn't want to quit working on it... plus their tech support is amazing. I'd been ripped off by different web site providers for years, and finally got fed up and decided to build my own. I had zero experience or training but a friend recommended Homestead so I tried it. I have had no problems or regrets. Wish all of life was this easy and reliable!
