I regretted the domain and wanted to buy another one instead. Simply.com's support answered almost immediately, did ALL the work of transferring my homepage to the new domain and suite and even gave me some tips on how to inc... More rease the performance of my homepage. All in 1 day, all for free. I am amazed! Less

Misleading pricing on domains
Linus Lorentzen,

Misleading pricing for domain registration. Price for domain is shown as the final price, but when you proceed and want to pay the price has changed. They don't let you bye a (.DK) domain without their DNS and they charge you... More for creating it. The issue has been there for years. I filed a complaint to the danish authorities back in 2017. Simply.com support is rude and ignores the obviously facts. 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.
