False advertising
Rowan Weston-Moore,

1. False DDoS protection, you guys claimed it was due to my software crashing the VPS on a DDoS attack, my new host which I installed everything the same on it and sure enough after a while of us announcing we have a new host... More we got DDoSed, not only did the service not go down but I got an automatic email notification.
2. False 1gb port, this new host also claimed to have a 1gb port, not only did if have super fast files transfer (unlike you guys) when connecting to Minecraft servers it was able to ping the numeric IP instantly unlike you guys where it took several seconds to ping
3. Expensive pricing, when I first found you I thought you where the cheapest but this company that I moved to DONT have shared cores and have 10 cores dedicated to me with 50gb ram and 1tb SSD, they have better specs than you as well,
4. When my VPS got compromised and BW filled up you charged me 10 EUR for an extra 1tb of BW, which is the same price as the actual VPS, it's not as if you gave me 16gb of ram and 160gb SSD you just gave me bandwidth
Yes I did a previous review and that was the day after I purchased it

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.
