I have been using Dotster for over 7 years now. My husband recently started a business and used godaddy, it was a nightmare! It was difficult to use and more expensive. I find Dotsters website builder (weebly) easy and has ma... More ny feature to make our website exactly how I want it. We pay about $10.50 for basic hosting and our domain per month. Godaddy is $13 and isn't nearly as good. Less
Chemicloud has the arguably best client support. The live chat is always working, response time is almost instant and their support stuff solved all of my issues in no time in the past several years. I wouldn't change them for anything :)!!

The web hosting providers I was using required I used their DNS. So when I went to move my website to a new hosting provider I got everything set up at the new location and changed the NS pointers from the old hosting provid... More er to the new one. Within hours, my domain was nuked off the internet. I should have stood by my knowledge on the first domain, but after 5 days of it "propagating" around the net, it still wasn't showing. There is no such thing as propagating, there's a time to live (TTL), when that expires on a DNS, the server goes out looking for a more current record. I finally moved the domain hosting to google domains and amazingly it came alive immediately.
I should have just initiated the google domain change on my second domain. But after a couple of years I thought they would have gotten things worked out. Turns out I was wrong; they hadn't. I ran into the same issue as prior. But this time, I just initiated the change after 12 hours. Their tech support is really good about telling you records need to propagate and they are completely wrong. It's all based on time outs. I'm going to pay the money and have all my domains moved.

I used it for 2 years and as a Senior Developer, I would not recommend this to anyone. They miss interpreted the word grace period once they came to know I m not going to continue first they asked to pay for the grace period ... More and then suspended the account 10 hours before ending the grace period and insisted to buy for one more month to recover the data if required.
I have used many hosting services including aws, godaddy, BlueHost, hostgator, Contabo, OVS, etc for different clients in my entire professional career but chemcloud is very opportunist.
also, their technical staff is so much incompetent that often they refuse to install some packages or install them in a way that is not useful and generates issues.
Personally, I would not recommend it to any of my clients. Less
