Good platform for web hosting
Briana Garrett,
9.2
I find them very good platform to purchase web hosting services. I will surely recommend them with some other good options like Hostinger, Godaddy and Domainracer to make a best choice.
Everything is excellent

I am using brinkster from some duration. Everything is just excellent I never had any complaints from them since I am with them overall great performance. Their are some other providers like domainracer and bigrock who provides value for money.

Very bad service

Staff trained wrongly, they say lies, cheating on you constantly. I cannot get rid of this company now, they keep on attacking you with offers and don’t let go easy, putting additional charges, very annoying people, my nightmare!
Terrible and insecure platform

As you can see many peoples sites etc. were breached and corrupt. I had proved to them and demanded the log files and it showed it was not on my side. There are big issues with their platform. When the new company bought them... More they started mystery charges and attempted to bill me for emails and hosting yearly instead of monthly. They also added mystery charges to my email accounts. It is near impossible to get support and I have had days of down time while they "update" their Zimbra or some virtual or router. Outrageous. I have been with them an very long time and used to have a great experience when Jared was in charge. I will not use them any longer and have left their platform for something more stable. Less
