У меня был небольшой простенький сайт на популярной CMSке, поэтому особо долго не искал, у кого захоститься. Взял популярный хостинг с самой дешевой ц...
еной. На тот момент это был ник ру. с тех пор уже 3 года прошло, проблем с хостингом ноль. крайне редко только получаю уведомления о том, что будут проводиться какие-то технические работы, ну и то, что оплатить обслуживание надо. В остальном работу хостинга даже не замечаю. Так мне кажется, и должно быть 👍
Keeps subscribing you to unwanted services, Unfriendly interface
I've been a user of Ru-Center for 20 years I guess - since the time it was virtually a monopolist of doman registration. I only use them for domain re...
guistration - no hosting , no anything. My laziness is the only thing stopping me from moving from them.
You would think it's super difficut to screw up a service like that - just register a domain, provide simple interface to things like DNS control and Top-up the balance and that's it. Yet I am quite unhappy with what they offer.
Every month I found myself subscribed to somethiing I definitely didn't signed up to. Personal Manager, Extented Security Plan, Antivirus (mind you, I have no hosting with them, not sure what they were planning to run anti-virus on). Support is silent on this account, you just have to log in every now and than and switch those services whack-a-mole style.
I am sure this is not a fluke: stories of "RU-CENTER subscribed me to something I didn't ask for AGAIN!" is all over Russian tech comminuties.
By the way, to find the page to switch those servies off is a bit of a quest in itself - the navigation is weirdly organized and look quite dated.
I know why I am still using it: I had no chance way back then, and now I'm too lazy to transfer domains to other hosters (domain transfer is a bit cumbersome process). It's a classic "boiling the frog" tale. But if you are looking for a provider from scratch - I'm sure you can easlily find a better one.
On a plus side - I never had technical issues / downtimes or anything like that. But again - I use them for the most basic service possible, managing the domains.
Did nothing to help me, except blame me for using their "app" to build the page.
I've been with them a couple or few years, today my credit card declined them for renewal, and am I GLAD. So while going to the page, my page wouldn'...
t load. Some company from some other land, was somehow promoted under mt DOT COM NAME, which they claim to HOST FOR ME. After way too much time on their TYPING CUSTOMER SERVICE CHAT, which is lame. I find out its Word Press or some bullshit, and supposedly its something I did, while trying to use their CRAP.
So basically a builder that they use to assist you, if looked at or something is clicked WRONG... An unknown website takes over your dit com... and its YOUR FAULT, not theirs. Their excuse, was my staff created something in word press, and THE INTERNET COULDNT UNDERSTAND WHICH PAGE TO SHOW... Thats their excuse for promoting their own bullshit web site, instead of mine, which i paid for. the Kicker. it happened in 2020. so for a FULL YEAR, I paid them to PROMOTE someone else, THEY CLAIM NO RESPONSIBILITY., You should know they advertise how easy they are to use... even GOOF proof... NOT SO. Apparently not so.
When I found fast Comet it was rated in several top 10 sites to use... Today, I couldn't find them listed in ANY TOP 10 LIST... I guess because they SUCK !!!!!!
P.S. as for customer support; they claim 365/7/24 apparently you can only talk to the SALES DEPARTMENT where they can sucker you into their services, but no phone support when they charge you a year of service to promote some bullshit that their SITE CREATED.
