Not Happy: Fat Cow Did Not Leave me
Rodney Sidloski,
3.6
After paying my $3,500 or so for Fat Cow to set up the site the site is up and running but with spelling and gramatical errors throughout plus one or two big glitches that Fat Cow promises to fix within 24 hours each time I t... More alk to them over the past number of month but they never follow through ...never fix the problem. So their PR people or PR firm they outsource are very polite and cordial and make promises for immediate action but there is a complete disconnect with their technical side. Its like their PR people have no authority to actually order services to your site. So a complete waste of time talking to them....they do nothing. With a non functioning site it is now having big financial implications on my company.
The glitch problem...at the bottom of the main page no matter what theme heading/page you click on ie: Become a Licencee, or International Research Corps or Become an Investor or Host a Launch .....when you click on any of these the site goes always to 'Become an Investor' page only. So the site is non usable in its current form. In addition, the spelling and gramatical errors throughout the site make the site appear unprofessional.

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.
