cleardot - About us



I have been a Defend Hosting customer, under various accounts, for about 3 years now, and couldn’t be more satisfied. Over the years I have needed assistance with my domains and accounts on many occasions (due to my own ignorance about how some things work), and I very quickly discovered that Defend Hosting goes FAR above and beyond anything I would expect when it comes to customer service.
