Покупал здесь сразу и домен, и хостинг. В процессе запуска возникло пару вопросов, с которыми мне помогли разобраться сотрудники техподдеркжи. Я не программист, но даже я понял, что от меня требуется, когда общался с сотрудни... More ком ТП. Это очень понравилось. В процессе общения не грузят клиента специфическими терминами, а стараются объяснить все максимально просто и понятно. Если совсем ничего не получаются, либо присылают наглядные скрины со стрелками, либо, что могут, делают за вас сами. Ощущение от сервиса, что очень клиентоориентированны. Less

Lots of restrictions. Payment method fraudulent. Charge when automatic payment is disabled. Very slow support.

I asked to have an upgrade of Python so that I could installed Django and it was denied. Their shared server has Python 2.7, and Python 3 was denied to be installed, which has been the standard version for many years (you are... More give a jail shell that restricts most installation). Their basic plan is way too restrictive. You have to get a non-shared server to get any serious work done there and pay lots of money. There is also no way to stop a payment once the invoice is done six weeks in advance. Turning off automatic payment does nothing once the invoice is done and there is no way to remove a credit card once added to do payments. 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.
