Good platform for web hosting
Briana Garrett,

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.
Super Friendly with Great Prices

We use Planet Hippo for a variety of things but their reliable hosting is what takes the cake. we have been received a lot of support over the years for our web hosting needs and their response has always been quick and efficient!

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!
Non-existent support and beware of being over-charged or repeatedly charged despite cancelling your account
Cordelia Elliott,

I briefly had their hosting service but when the contract came around for review, I decided to cancel and go with another provider. However, Planet Hippo did not want me to leave so they continued to access my credit card and... More charge me for an account I had closed. Thus far calling them, live chat and email support have failed. I am promised that they will "look into it" but the only response I receive from them is a statement stating that this medium level support ticket is closed. I agree whole heatedly with the recent reviewer that no one seems to read a support ticket because all you receive is a canned response. Seriously, isn't accessing a client's stored credit card information months, nay, nearly a year after they cancelled worthy of a considered response? Apparently, not in their case. All they have done is close the ticket and ignore it. My bank is having to step in. Less
