I don't understand the bad reviews
Mason Curry,

I've been using Vultr for two years now and deployed many instances. They are fast, reliable, and cheap. Seems like they do regular network maintenance but I've only had it affect my VMs one time. I've reached out to support ... More many times and they are always very helpful and nice.
They continually update their product offerings and make improvements all the time. Scaling was a little rough when I first started because they didn't have as much capacity, but I have not had that issue in quite a while since they have added way more capacity.
They block port 25 by default so people don't burn their IPs, and they do require a deposit to start but I have no issue with this because I have yet to get a problematic IP. If you've been with them for a while and you have a use case for the port, they will approve it if you ask. They do all of this to prevent abuse which plagues any hosting provider. Before all of these people freak out about it in the reviews, they should consider the reasoning for it.
In terms of the number of bad reviews on here, consider that most people upset will take the time to leave their thoughts somewhere, while the grand majority of satisfied people who use it every day don't even think about it.
If you're uncertain, it's only $5 to test it out. When choosing a long term hosting provider for your applications, that is not much to put down.

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.
