Blacknight service
Donal Knight,

I have been with Blacknight for about fifteen years and have found the to be excellent in terms of pricing and support. Whenever I need help (usually because of my own lack of knowledge) they have talked me through the soluti... More on. These days it is refreshing to talk to a human being at the other end of the phone and especially one who has the knowledge to help. Their patience in dealing with a programming illiterate is second to none. I wouldn't go anywhere else. Less

Horrible experience with Blacknight

I have done businesses with many companies like Namecheap, InternetBS, Namesilo, Dynadot and lot more but never seen such bad company like Blacknight.
Their website is completely horrible(UI/UX). I was circling through the w... More hole website to find my invoice. Their Odin panel is from 90's and you will have a hard time to find what you need.
If you're not from Ireland they will ask shit ton of documents to provide you service and even some of the documents are too much(passport, national ID, credit card picture, utility bill, and what not). I never had this many documents required at any other company. Complete hell for privacy.
Customer support agents are egoistic as hell. Like others reported they just want to deal with customers asking for support. When I complained I am not okay providing this many documents the support agent immediately left the chat instead of providing any solution and after I rated the chat as bad the agent immediately joined again and asked if I want to cancel the order. I replied I want to cancel my order and my information deleted from their system. The agent left the chat again immediately!
Don't trust those TrustPilot reviews. They are mostly from "Ireland" and I suspect Blacknight themselves created those TrustPilot account and reviewed themselves.

They're extremely deceptive in their pricing

The whole "regular price" thing means that's how much they'll charge you once you renew. It doesn't say it explicitly, which is really shady. I wouldn't trust them at all passed that point.
