Excellent service. So quick. They even helped me upgrade to the highest service package for a very small difference. Special shout out to Anna, Mohammed I, Pradeep.....sorry if I missed anyone else

"We are experiencing longer than usual wait times and apologize for your inconvenience".
Jamil Durrani,
2.0
By far the worst company to deal with. Their hosting service and domain configuration system is TERRIBLE. You will have to wait for at least an hour - no matter when you call for technical support "We are experiencing longer ... More than usual wait times and apologize for your inconvenience". Don't bother chatting either because your wait time is not what the bot is telling you. After being helped by technical support you will have to wait for 24 to 48 hours before knowing if the technical support actually resolved your problem. Don't buy SEO services from register.com because you'll become a ping-pong ball between a third-party SEO company and register.com and you will not see any results after waiting for the 60 days that they want you to wait. Remember you money is 100% non-refundable. Less
The A2 FTP server is extremly slow for anyone

The A2 FTP server is extremly slow for any user from any place in the world. Still A2 claims everything is fine and refuses to do anything about it. I never ever got such horrible support
