I was looking for the best hosting company in China, and I think I found it. English is my first language, so I was glad to see that their site could be easily translated into English. They even did a good job with the tran... More slation. The one problem I have with this site is that they don't list their prices right away. This is why they got only three stars in that section. The actual prices are fair, but I wanted to be able to see them more easily.
Now that I'm signed up and working with them for about 6 months, I have no complaints. They work well all the time and keep my site running smoothly without interruption.

Lots of restrictions. Payment method fraudulent. Charge when automatic payment is disabled. Very slow support.

I asked to have an upgrade of Python so that I could installed Django and it was denied. Their shared server has Python 2.7, and Python 3 was denied to be installed, which has been the standard version for many years (you are... More give a jail shell that restricts most installation). Their basic plan is way too restrictive. You have to get a non-shared server to get any serious work done there and pay lots of money. There is also no way to stop a payment once the invoice is done six weeks in advance. Turning off automatic payment does nothing once the invoice is done and there is no way to remove a credit card once added to do payments. Less

Looks like their website doesn't properly function. I couldn't check domain names, trying several times with different browsers. I definitely dont wont my website to be kept on their servers.
On submission of this form :which... More service did you use with hichina" you cant even choose anything else except "I dont know". I think it is not correct at all. Less
