IX! I was not sure how to add a review in your site, I was truly disappointed by some of the reviews
I read in some other sites. First, I would like to start by saying, you have always taken care of me, from allowing me to kn... More ow
months in advance if my domain's expiring, or hosting my site and allowing me enough time to have the year cost. Your company has always set a high standard with my small business when I first started with you nine years ago. My technical helper, Mandy helped me set up my website
with your help. She was very pleased with your company, she used it for her own site. That sold me immediately. Your fees are very reasonable, and the few times I had to be on the phone with you, you have had a friendly staff answering phones and helping with unique questions. A while
ago, I was helped in a very personal way about what to put in certain areas in my site. This person, was remarkable and funny too. She helped me with my wordpress site, by mentioning one or two things I never thought I would know on my own. I don't remember her name, but we laughed and
joked a little. Left a very pleasant image of your company.
There is always a unique person on the other side of the line when I have called. I believe this company has taken very good care of all our sites, by updating it, and taking no more than 24 hours to update living it safe and protecting it from harm. Thank you Ixwebhosting, you are truly an
amazing company to be associated with.

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.
