I am using brinkster from some duration. Everything is just excellent I never had any complaints from them since I am with them overall great performance. Their are some other providers like domainracer and bigrock who provides value for money.

Terrible and insecure platform
Ted Fargus,
2.0
As you can see many peoples sites etc. were breached and corrupt. I had proved to them and demanded the log files and it showed it was not on my side. There are big issues with their platform. When the new company bought them... More they started mystery charges and attempted to bill me for emails and hosting yearly instead of monthly. They also added mystery charges to my email accounts. It is near impossible to get support and I have had days of down time while they "update" their Zimbra or some virtual or router. Outrageous. I have been with them an very long time and used to have a great experience when Jared was in charge. I will not use them any longer and have left their platform for something more stable. Less
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.
