I still use it for some legacy websites, I was very fond of it, even though it crashed more and more. After the upgrade to Big Sur, it was too unstable to work with, so I created a Mojave partition as a workaround. But very surprisingly: on my new M1Pro MacBook, on Monterey, it works really well again!

I had used it with no problems since 2011. At first they were great, the creator himself contacted you to make sure everything was working fine. Now it has suddenly stopped working, and as other posters have reported, there is no response whatsoever, to system crash reports or manual contacts. To make matters worse I upgraded since I thought I was out of space. I will contact Better Business Bureau, but have no ideas how to get my money back.

HORRIBLE! Every year Sandvox Hosting bills me for $99. I discontinued their service several years ago, and now have to dispute their erroneous charges every year. The reason I stopped using Sandbox Hosting is because their website was down frequently and there is no way to contact their support team. No phone number is listed and if you fill in the automated request on the website no action/response is ever taken. Worst company ever!

I am in the same boat as a lot of you are, tried contacting Karelia software but like you, got no response, I agree very unprofessional of them. My reason for posting at this time is to find out what other companies have you settled on for your website building and hosting. I am in limbo right now and will have to rebuild my website from scratch.

This company have essentially drop the product. You can buy it, but you will not get any support. I used it for a few years and it was very good. But I ended up switching to Wordpress.

What an unprofessional lot! All of a sudden everything goes silent. If you guys went belly up than at least have the guts to inform the customers. It was a very good software and migrating to a different tool for two companies will now cost dozens of hours. Thanks for nothing guys.

It was GREAT before Karelia Software became a ghost. Now, their software is still available for purchase on their website and, remarkably, Sandvox is still available for purchase on the App Store but the company is uncontactable; it is even impossible to send bug reports. To migrate to another program is the obvious, although enormously time-consuming choice. But who knows if that choice will survive the move to ARM? Sandvox users remain in limbo and the lack of any announcement from the company is, to put it very mildly, disappointing.

In 2019 I experienced multiple crashes for my website. I emailed Sandvox support about 20 times with only a few automated responses from them and no solution to the problem of my website being down. I canceled my account. Karelia then had the audacity to bill me for the next years domain usage. I finally got that resolved but they only gave me a partial refund for unused services. Now in 2020 with a closed account they have charged my credit card again. Their website does not allow you to turn off auto billing even for closed accounts. Shame on them!

Karelia support is non-existence. I have 11 case numbers regarding the same hosting issues starting June 1, 2020 without resolution. The listed phone number is not working. My advice is to steer clear of Karelia and all their products until they can prove that they are once again a reliable company.

All is good when all goes well. But five weeks ago I ran into difficulty with the hosting, despite being helped by someone who knows. I sent off emails over a 4 weeks, and other than the automatic response, I heard nothing at all from them. This is discourteous and inefficient, plus this time it mattered because it was extremely urgent. I had to go elsewhere. I asked for a refund given there had been no support or help over a whole month, but of course one does not hear from them about that either!

I have used Sandbox for several years. But I cancelled my account because there is absolutely no customer service. I have sent e-mail after e-mail concerning issues (they do not provide phone in customer service. Each time I get an e-mail saying they will get back by the next day. They have never gotten back to me. No customer service...no use of their product or website hosting. Maybe they have fallen on hard times or maybe no one cares...but for whatever reason, I would not recommend buying their product since they do not provide customer service. Even when my account was closed at my request, they renewed a domain without my permission and charged me $144; they did not answer my e-mails about this issue either. Thank goodness for good credit card support. I really hate to write a negative review and have rarely, if ever, done so. I would make this -10 stars if I could.

I just purchased this and am having trouble with it crashing my computer upon save or quit (High Sierra 10.13.4). In one crash, it completely froze/crashed my computer and I had to reinstall the whole operating system to get back up and running. I created a support ticket asking for help, which according to their website should come in 2 business days. Well, here I sit, still waiting after 5 days, soon to be six, and still no response. I would give it ZERO stars if I could...terrible support, or I should say, no support. If you do buy it, good luck and make sure you have a bootable back up at the ready for when it all goes south and completely takes down your computer. You've been warned!

Tried it. Didn't like. Developer says it's Intuitive. Maybe to some degree. Selected a theme, inserted a picture, couldn't move, only up and down. So this is an indication of very first limitation. Tried another template, same thing. Not flexible at all. I tried it about 9 yrs ago, and I can see not much changed. In Quick'n Easy by Pablo this feature of moving objects anywhere you want exists many years, and it is superior to Sandvox. When I try website building software, if I feel not comfortable the first 5-10 minutes, I drop it.
Another thing, tried to uninstall it with iTrash, it insists of staying. Tried again, doesn't work. Emptied the trash and used iTrash again. It's still here.

Knowing where you want to go in a webpage, and whether you will do the work to achieve it is important to making a tool choice.

"... professional looking website quickly and easily ..." Professional looking website may be true but it isn't quickly and easily ! The learning curve is extremely steep and therefore not easy. Easy apps to create decent and pro looking sites are Rapidweaver and Blocs. I can really advice to look into those two great alternatives.

Switched to Sandvox from Rapidweaver after upgrading to v6. Not so happy with the RW v6 release. Sandbox worked great right out of the box, and has a very intuitive interface. Almost ZERO time to learn, started pumping out a test website very quickly. With all of the good reviews of Sandbox, I thought maybe it's time to change (after 7 years with RW). Tried Sandvox demo for a few hours, and made the purchase the same day... Very happy customer so far. THANK YOU!

We love Sandvox & the templates that the user community has built. I'm an iWeb fan so I was bummed when Apple stopped updating it. However Sandvox has been a great tool too- more stable then iWeb. Though I still do my FTP updates manually I find this web editor very easy to use & including social plugins are a snap. Here are my sites if you want to see the capabilities: http://www.mountainmistkennel.com http://www.bawshop.com http://www.laceypearls.com
