Остался доволен.

Покупал здесь сразу и домен, и хостинг. В процессе запуска возникло пару вопросов, с которыми мне помогли разобраться сотрудники техподдеркжи. Я не программист, но даже я понял, что от меня требуется, когда общался с сотрудни... More ком ТП. Это очень понравилось. В процессе общения не грузят клиента специфическими терминами, а стараются объяснить все максимально просто и понятно. Если совсем ничего не получаются, либо присылают наглядные скрины со стрелками, либо, что могут, делают за вас сами. Ощущение от сервиса, что очень клиентоориентированны. Less

Very fast response, and great listeners. Their support tickets are easy to follow and their support team have great attention to detail and are very helpful and concise. Very glad I moved my sites over to A2 Hosting.

Keeps subscribing you to unwanted services, Unfriendly interface
Dmitry Kvasov,

I've been a user of Ru-Center for 20 years I guess - since the time it was virtually a monopolist of doman registration. I only use them for domain reguistration - no hosting , no anything. My laziness is the only thing stop... More ping me from moving from them.
You would think it's super difficut to screw up a service like that - just register a domain, provide simple interface to things like DNS control and Top-up the balance and that's it. Yet I am quite unhappy with what they offer.
Every month I found myself subscribed to somethiing I definitely didn't signed up to. Personal Manager, Extented Security Plan, Antivirus (mind you, I have no hosting with them, not sure what they were planning to run anti-virus on). Support is silent on this account, you just have to log in every now and than and switch those services whack-a-mole style.
I am sure this is not a fluke: stories of "RU-CENTER subscribed me to something I didn't ask for AGAIN!" is all over Russian tech comminuties.
By the way, to find the page to switch those servies off is a bit of a quest in itself - the navigation is weirdly organized and look quite dated.
I know why I am still using it: I had no chance way back then, and now I'm too lazy to transfer domains to other hosters (domain transfer is a bit cumbersome process). It's a classic "boiling the frog" tale. But if you are looking for a provider from scratch - I'm sure you can easlily find a better one.
On a plus side - I never had technical issues / downtimes or anything like that. But again - I use them for the most basic service possible, managing the domains.

For every problem you have they will ask you to upgrade to vps, even you can’t set your cron job to run every 5 minutes for this to happen you need a vps , stay away
