I was on go daddy and someone suggested me from India. I cam to Hostimger and they have changed my life. I am worried less. and they take care of my site. If you are a master or less knowledgeable choice Hostinger.

I signed up and they were more than willing to take my money. I decided I didn't need the web site so closed it down. I soon noticed the monthly recurring charges continued. A lengthy phone call and the services were cancelle... More d, or so I thought.
Yesterday they took money from my account for an annual subscription.
I phoned the support and spoke to a man with a heavy Indian accent, so possibly an Indian call centre. He was treating me like an idiot and talking down to me. He advised me that I needed to disable the service and needed the password that was supplied originally. I have no idea what it was so effectively can't disable it. I noticed that it is an annual subscription so next year they will try to take more money from me. They will try, but I have blocked them at the bank and this as placed them on the suspicious debitors list.
Be VERY careful with these people, they are in business to make money and don't care who they walk over or how they trick you into parting with your money.
I will be taking them to the small claims court as dealing with them is so difficult and time consuming. Time is money,

Terrible TOS or offshore management

Terrible TOS or offshore management
August 24th, 2021
Service was OK for a few months, most of the tech support requests were answered with "Here is a page how to do it, do it yourself". Lucky I was able to make my own chang... More es.
We host reviews to businesses and people who work for government and the courts.
A dishonest party did not like that we listed their work info (which we copied from their work website)
Thus the dishonest party claimed we posted "private info of a person" to our pages (untrue, in fact this info is all over Google with Google reviews.
We sent screenshots and links to where this info was copied from
However Hostinger ignored us, did not respond, they just suspended our account, this happened several times for 2 domains, all the same complaint and issues. They claimed we violated their TOS and pointed to "terror" as what we did to this person.
We had no choice but to move our sites and domains, where "the next host had no problem". I think part of the problem is Hostinger staff have poor English ability so they did not understand what they were told and instead of trying to understand they just agreed with the dishonest party and suspended their own customers account.
We have written several emails and messages to ask for a refund for the unused services but they ignore us and come back with silly, "you are right" but we did what he had to do BS.
While they get most of their clients from low balling low prices, the custom Cpanel set up is a nightmare and used to stop you from migration away from them. Things are not in normal places and it's over complicated not better than Cpanel.
Once they know you're not happy they ignore you
Tip for consumers:
They will bill extra for each SSL, Not offer Tech support, instead send you to their document pages to figure it out on your own.
