I'm satisfied with everything, especially with the speed of the cache! The pages load in a moment! Unlike many other sites that take almost a minute! Talking about the Auto-pilot: I'm happy with it, it's a great help, it adds the advertisements where they should be!

What I love of Altervista is that it all seems very simple, even those things I don't understand and that I will never use because I'm a total fool. Even though they could greatly improve my blog as well as my life too.

My experience with Altervista has been an eye-opener. I had tried several other hosting services and registrars, and Altervista comes on top. Thank you for a wonderful service. May you go on to greater success.
