Мне понравился
Андрей Куприянов,

Пришлось переехать с другого хоста, где уж слишком задрали цены за последнее время. Хотя с качеством и техподдержкой все было нормально, обслуживание влетало в копейку, а я не люблю, когда меня обдирают, да и сегодня не время... More монополистов, предложений на рынке хостингов хватает. Посидел изучил информацию, провел тесты, понравились ник ру. Тут и с надежностью, и с саппортом тоже вроде все в порядке, но цены все же пониже, хоть компания и крупная. Less

Keeps subscribing you to unwanted services, Unfriendly interface

I've been a user of Ru-Center for 20 years I guess - since the time it was virtually a monopolist of doman registration. I only use them for domain reguistration - no hosting , no anything. My laziness is the only thing stop... More ping me from moving from them.
You would think it's super difficut to screw up a service like that - just register a domain, provide simple interface to things like DNS control and Top-up the balance and that's it. Yet I am quite unhappy with what they offer.
Every month I found myself subscribed to somethiing I definitely didn't signed up to. Personal Manager, Extented Security Plan, Antivirus (mind you, I have no hosting with them, not sure what they were planning to run anti-virus on). Support is silent on this account, you just have to log in every now and than and switch those services whack-a-mole style.
I am sure this is not a fluke: stories of "RU-CENTER subscribed me to something I didn't ask for AGAIN!" is all over Russian tech comminuties.
By the way, to find the page to switch those servies off is a bit of a quest in itself - the navigation is weirdly organized and look quite dated.
I know why I am still using it: I had no chance way back then, and now I'm too lazy to transfer domains to other hosters (domain transfer is a bit cumbersome process). It's a classic "boiling the frog" tale. But if you are looking for a provider from scratch - I'm sure you can easlily find a better one.
On a plus side - I never had technical issues / downtimes or anything like that. But again - I use them for the most basic service possible, managing the domains.

- they are evil and money eaters, they suspended all my work for a dumb reason that says you take a lot of resources and destroy our reputation All my clients.
- they forced their clients to buy SSL certificates although, th... More ey should be free and it is for all web hosting companies. Can you Imagine that !!!
- I will transfer all my work and run away from this unrespectable company then I will not hastate to sell my clothes just to let people know about How this company is bad and contain lots of evil inside its work strategy .... starting from the dead waiting time the user has to wait to get a response and ending by the evil strategy it uses to force the user to purchase things its already must give it for free to the users.
- Don't run your work with this company ever
