    Bad

    Thought it was the best Hosting service, but HELL NO. -The best part which made me write this review: You press the pay button on the invoice section. There were 3 invoices. When you are redirected to next page, there are 4 selected invoices. The one is a privacy protection for the expired domain which you don't use anymore and which were expired 1 year ago and you asked them to delete it multiple times. TADA!!! 12.95 + tax hidden cost for the thing you don't use. BAD: -Hidden prices (get a hosting plan with * then pay more, then pay even more etc. I'm scared to ask what going on with their PENNY HOSTING. They will ask you to sell your house to pay the next month or something?) -fools on chat -limited software -ads in my cpanel which can't be removed. Tech support advised me to use adblock. REALLY?! -staff limited to their actions or just fools as stated before -the award winning award is not true. They just connect you in a few minutes and they just switch between chats. You still wait the actual time but on the connected chat. -no expiration email for domain name. I did get emails for hosting plan but today I got an email that my domain ALREADY expired. No previous notifications. They just put ADs on my website and informed me about that. -NO SECURE CONNECTION when you logging in in your cpanel. Not just a crappy certificate but the data are not encrypted at all. Don't think the shared certificate actually work. -Instant domain activation? Still laughing! My domain and hosting took 6 days to activate. Even though I sent my passport photo the same hour. -Buy a domain page? It's a joke. Every time you want another domain you have to contact their chat support and then they will generate an invoice. In the domain registration page you get an error when you are trying to register. -Still my other domain which expired 1 year ago is active and getting on my nerves since I see it everywhere. Even though I contacted multiple times and asked for the to remove it for me. The best part? The invoices still generate for it and you can accidentally pay for it without even noticing. GOOD: -The uptime is actually great. -Their ads on youtube are funny. I'm still using their services until I find a better company.
