Messed up my email
Dorothy Martin,
2.0
I tried to switch from the 10 multi-user email pack to a "professional" email account. Not sure what the difference is, but it was cheaper and I only need one email account not 10 -- btw, the agent (a guy named Van) didn't ex... More plain how a multi-user versus professional account is different. Anyway, he apparently messed up the order and my email expired entirely! I had to go back to the multi-user pack in order to salvage the 20 years' of emails I've had with Register.com because everything would have been lost if I recreated my email with the new professional account, which means that I'm stuck again with its 20-year-old email platform (literally, the interface hasn't been upgraded since 2001). Now I have to back up all my emails, which I have no idea how to do. They'll do it for me if I want to pay them (which is ridiculous because they're the ones who screwed up -- I shouldn't have to pay for their screw up!). I'm better off getting all my emails backed up, then going with a different company. So frustrating!!! Avoid Register.com!!! 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.
