VP is easy to use & I haven't had any issues with reliability or tech support. My biggest gripe about VP is that you can't edit your html. This is quite limiting because it means you can't add Google Analytics, search engine meta tags, can't edit sitemap, basically any html additions that would be good for your website are not allowed. They do offer a site traffic report but it only updates every 48 hours and doesn't give you any flexibility to see more than total pages visited, referring site a

If you just have simple needs and don't need to edit your html VP is ok but if you need more detailed reporting and editing options look elsewhere.

Terrible. How is this place in business?, Member GenevieveGreen

I think any positive review is written by them. Is it possible to give negative stars? I spent three hours trying to buy three personalized mugs for Christmas presents. The website was terrible and kept changing my designs then after I finally got so frustrated and gave up they tried to charge me $45 for three $6 mugs. They push advertising and try to rip people off. The advertising works but not the actual design software. They added astronomical fees on after I had spent all that time trying to get the mugs designed correctly. The best part, the $45 was with a discount for my inconvenience! What a waste of time. I would NEVER recommend these people!
