Positive Experience
BILL HUBER,
8.0
I have been using PowWeb for 13 years (since 2006) and my experience has been all positive. There is virtually no down time, and their IMAP email service has been reliable and meets all of my needs. On the rare occasions that... More I have had to contact the Support Department, my issues were resolved in a reasonable amount of time. I have one website and four email addresses, so perhaps my needs are less complex than some of the other customers with the negative reviews, but my experience with PowWeb has been quite good. Less

Trust me. They will hustle you for everything. Including infecting your files and tell you to buy their protection. They can suspend your account for their own malicious activities and put you on hold for 48-72hrs. You heard ... More right. Every single issue take 48-72hrs to resolve. Less
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.
