Good Solid Webhosting

We use Hostmonster for our webhosting. Our company does optimization, content writing etc. Hostmonster is a great company from a web professional's opinion. I am more technical and Hostmonster has not passed the buck on me yet.
Good Hosting with a Major Problem

I am on Hostinger from 5 months ago, before being with them I read that the support is not great but I took the risk.
But tbh I regret being on Hostinger for the very bad support they have. I'm facing a problem since 15 days ... More and no live support can be accessed since March 7 to contact them, even I emailed support@hostinger.com but no reply.
Overall with Hostinger you will get very good hosting features but you will really miss the support at any time you need them.
If you are not working every single task and want to rely on support to solve your problems, Hostinger is not the right choice for you.

After ten years, they lost me as a customer forever

It is pretty uncommon that I give bad reviews online, but I'm making an exception here.
I've recommended Hostmonster / Bluehost in the past as a viable option for people looking for cheap shared hosting. I regret it. This com... More pany's policies are terrible and absolutely put the bottom line in front of customer happiness. I have a defunct account on Hostmonster. There are no domains currently pointing to it. I thought the my billing information had been removed when I sold my company but my old business credit card was still on file. Hostmonster ran my card for one year of hosting at $443. I called today to try to get at least *some* of that money refunded since I will not be using their service at all and they are charging me for an entire year. But since it is five days after the start of the new year for the account (and only two business days after my credit card statement) according to company policy I am out an entire year of hosting costs. They can't even issue a partial refund for the 12 unused months.
I asked if there was anyone else I could talk to. I asked to talk to their customer retention department. I explained that I don't use this credit card anymore and didn't even get the statement until after the 16th. But they are insisting that it is company policy and there's nothing they can do. So, I unequivocally do NOT recommend their services. I went from a happy customer of almost a decade to a furious former customer over the course of an hour.
This is absolutely not how you run a business.

Actually we bough a domain from Hostinger since 1 April we are trying to update the name servers to our hosting server but their panel which provided for domain registration is useless as i heared from them that they are prov... More iding domain registration through 3rd party which can't update our nameservers correctly since 22 days and we are totally down..
we open many tickets we contact support live chat many times we have emailed to complains email at Hostinger compliances since 1 April and the issue still not resolved..
my question is why you provide a services and we pay money non professional and they look professional but can't resolve a very basic and small issue but finally its a big because our website id down without any correct action from Hosting provider mentioned above
