    DO NOT TRUST Netfirms

    I've dealt with Netfirms for many years, just as may of these other reviewers. Emails go un-answered, dealing with them via online chat takes 30-40 minutes, with slim chance of resolving the issue. Their uptime isn't anywhere near what they guarantee. The last strike for me was a fraudulent charge to my credit card. It was an automatic renewal of domain registration, for a domain that I had set to "MANUAL" renewal. I received no notification of the charge. Once I discovered the charge on my bill, I contacted them, they refused to fully refund it. What should have been a quick "no problem sir" chat, turned into 50 minutes which wasted nearly half my Saturday afternoon. I then had to dispute the charge with my Credit Card Company. Finally, they charge in US Dollars (despite being a Canadian Company!) but they don't note that their fees are in US dollars on their website. So, you have an extra 35-40% exchange rate on what they advertise. This is not a business that is honest and up-front about their practices. You get cheap hosting/domain registration -- both in price and service. And you'll spend more of your time than you bargain with these guys. (What's your time worth?)
