    bob, well done, almost 500 views without a reply.

    SSD capability is a sort of gimmick as the types of websites Xara generates are static and small.
    99.9% uptime is industry standard these days. Xara host is a paltry 98%.
    Server locations are few.You could trying pinging them to find out what your delay might be. I use CloudFlare (free) with my provider, which provides speed and locality.
    Te current offer of $3/m may seem attractive but it is only for one site. I use JustHost and it charges $4/m for similar functions and again 1 site.. However, ChoicePlus is only $7/m for unlimited sites.

    Where are you getting this info (500 views) from Acorn? I don't doubt this is correct but surely if I posted:

    Does anyone here use the services of xxxx Hosting please?
    How many TG members would use this hosting service? None would be my guess

    I'd reply if I did use MechanicWeb as my hosting service but I don't.

    Just feeling grumpy at present!

    @Egg, it is the fact that the question is directed - a Yes/No answer will get few replies if the Yeses are in the minority.

    The better question might have been "Are these better services than MechanicWeb, which I am considering?", against which I implicitly tried to offer methods of comparison so others could assess its worth and/or apply to their future decisions.
