Меня устраивает
Борис Викторович,

У меня был небольшой простенький сайт на популярной CMSке, поэтому особо долго не искал, у кого захоститься. Взял популярный хостинг с самой дешевой ценой. На тот момент это был ник ру. с тех пор уже 3 года прошло, проблем с ... More хостингом ноль. крайне редко только получаю уведомления о том, что будут проводиться какие-то технические работы, ну и то, что оплатить обслуживание надо. В остальном работу хостинга даже не замечаю. Так мне кажется, и должно быть 👍 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.
