I have been using domainking ever since I started my blogger's journey since 2015 and I have never had an regret using them. Domainking is highly reliable and recommendable.

Absolute Trash Fire (Avoid At All Costs!!)

So I assume by the general consensus of the reviews hear you've got the gist already, but I thought I'd add my 2 cents to the pile anyway.
Site5 was OK a few years ago when it had (limited) phone support but still had some i... More ssues (it's native Wordpress Installer didn't work for example). Since it sold out to EIG a while back however it's been in a state of steady decline. There's been too many issues to list of late but here's a small sample:
- Not updating PHP on my server leading to one of my websites getting hacked
- the "WHM" area where all websites are accessed being housed on a domain with an outdated SSL again leaving it vulnerable
- Charging me for things I didn't order
- The Live Chat box glitches out if there's more than one tab open
- Continuous price hikes with no warning
As such the service has become something I wouldn't wish upon my enemies. There are some aspects that I like such as (limited) access to Cpanel and Max Upload Filesize of 1000mb on websites however generally speaking I'd suggest people avoid this platform like the plague. I can only imagine that inertia is what's allowing them to retain whatever is left of their customer base but it seems like it's only a matter of the time before the sink ships altogether. Anyway, glad to be done with them!!

DOMAIN KING Is The Worst Customer Experience I've Ever Recorded in Web Hosting Services in Nigeria
Olawale Daniel,
2.0
DomainKing is a cheat! The review I have been seeing so far are all lies. They just ripped me off my money and today marks the fourth day I have been messaging them with no one to respond. Is this what you call good customer ... More support.
All the support option are dead including the in-house support ticket. They are totally not active on social media even for us to communicate with them.
Seems nobody is listening at all to customer but just for them to run series of ads to get more people to purchase without delivering the service. This email support@domainking.ng is totally robot-friendly and no one will reply from it.
Please stay away from them or else, you will feel the pain I am feeling with this company...I just got to know they are not even domiciled in Nigeria but from India which is really bad and I will soon file a report to the federal government about them.
Imagine, if it takes a company 48-72 hours to reply customer support tickets, what is now the fate of such client in the face of downtime or issues?
