Avoid this company

In the last few weeks, Dotster have managed to permanently lose my domain name, charge me for services I've cancelled, and continue to promise to call back with a resolution. I'm still waiting. Unbelievably awful customer service; go to ANY other company for your web needs.

Stay Away! Email delivery problems

Lost several thousand dollars worth of business due to emails that simply disappeared on their way to Dotster's email servers. The support team acted like there was nothing wrong on their part, but it continued to happen, and at this point I just don't trust them at all. Now in the process of switching to another email host after the third time this has happened.

Extremely frustrated with poor service and loss of business due to website being down.

As a business owner, I pass along the good as a rule. This time I am passing along the poor service received by Dotster.com. My website has been down for about two weeks. I am still waiting to hear what is going on with my domain name which is why the website cannot be published. I have explained and called and texted and e chatted with customer service at this domain site and they tell me that I am a priority. If I am a priority, I'd hate to see how they treat their other customers. Please take note of this company and be careful if you decide to build a website who you purchase your domain name from.

Dont Use DOTSTER: From Web Professional.

I heartily would NOT RECOMMEND Dotster as a host. I have been a customer since 2008, and after having been through a bunch of other poor hosts, was relieved that I never, ever had issues with Dotsterhost, which has recently changed, and was only aware of my sites being down once for a short period in the entire time I was a hosted there. I have purchase more than 3 dozen domains through Dotster, and have advised my clients since 2008 to use Dotster (formerly Dotsterhost). I design sites, am an IT professional, and can follow instructions and procedures. In other words, I know that of which I speak. And do. It is Saturday night. I should be ENJOYING myself. Instead, I am scrambling to figure out what the hell is wrong with these people, and RANTING MAD. As I have to keep this rant to 1000 characters, read the other reviews, WHAT THEY SAID. My frustration level is THROUGH THE ROOF. You know, you've been there. If you haven't, and dont want to GO there, then DO NOT USE DOTSTER.

Worst in the business!!

I was automatically transferred to Dotster when they bought my former registrar NameZero. After a while I suddenly realized emails where no longer getting through any of my domains. Dotster provided no previous warning and the support on the issue was non- existent. I'm now trying to move away from this joke of a company. Problem is, i have whois-privacy enabled since the time with NameZero and now I can't update the contact details myself, so i'm waiting for Dotster support to take care of it. It's been several weeks, calls, emails, tweets and support tickets - still nothing! I don't wish my worst enemy this hell that is being stuck with the non-existent support of Dotster. Please be adviced - stay away from these clowns, they're the worst in the business - all categories!
