I thought hosting plans were affordable but after checking the price of their cloud hosting plan for 1 month which is 50$ I will rather buy from Hostgator, where I am getting the plan for 14$. They are charging way overpriced if u buy for 1 month not recommended if u plan to buy for 1 month
I paid for a domain for the whole year. One week after the payment, they informed me that they haven't received the payment and suspend the domain. When I emailed them, they said that they will try to solve the problem, but they never did it. Hostinger is simply a scam.
I subscribed to the premium shared hosting today and straightaway experienced poor performance. I was trying to upload a small backup file of 67 MB in the newly subscribed hosting but tried more than 5 hours without any success. The upload rate was consistent at 50-60 KBPS which was not enough to make the All in One WP Migration plugin work perfectly. Never experienced such an insanely poor uploading speed in a hosting service.
Hostinger is the worst hosting company i have come across and the support is just horrible. Do not spend your hard earned money on this hosting provider because you will be sorry and frustrated in the end.
I bought the business hosting package and have been having issues from the very start. Nearly every week at least twice i get a CPU fault and the percentage of CPU usage is less then 10% in most cases which makes me believe that they use extremely low quality and also apply throttle limits no matter which package you are using. Support is just simply dumb and comes up with copy paste responses of plugin issues even when you have 0 plugins you will come across this issue. Secondly the logs do not point to any plugin related issues and thirdly when you ask for an RCA they just disappear and do not respond. My current issue has been ongoing for last 4 days now and still i am waiting to hear back from there technical team. I have been documenting this and if any one is interested to read the whole chat then feel free to click on this link >>> https://1drv.ms/b/s!ArpS5TtZ-RRvgtJ3XX8RGFKr1tRpPA?e=jQJcoQ
Don't forget you will always get low server response and DB related issues on top of this. Live support chat takes at least 1 hour before responding and they claim five mins lol.
In the document you can see the following in detail
1. Issue was with performance and as usual CPU faults. The support staff creating a blank HTML page with the words hostinger and claimed that our server response time is excellent :D. Can you imagine a blank HTML page being used to test server response lol
2. Issue is related to redirect from non www to www domain.
3. Trying to Transfer a website from Zoho Builder to Hostinger. You can see the knowledge of the support staff and how someone completely new to hosting can mess up things if they follow them
4. Error establishing a database connection. Once again i am facing this issue and this has been very consistent. This time they admitted that they are doing some maintenance and as usual no one informed about it.
5. CPU Fault once again and this time i had enough so decided to post everything online.
End up paying more and more and still can’t handle visitors to our sites fast enough
No other complaints - service has been fine when there have been glitches - given up on the hosted emails but never mind. The problem is that the speed is never good enough and we have upgraded about 3 or 4 times already. So getting sick of paying more and more for still not good enough. And feeling rather frustrated. I see I am part of a chorus here. They are not terrible, but in hindsight, I wish I hadn't gone with them. Such a big job to move, again, too. I am creating a new website soon - will use it to test out a rival platform, and see how it performs.
Overall, I think Hostinger is a good company. Prices are affordable for a small website, but they skyrocket when the site starts consuming resources (when you have many visitors to the website). I have been hosting my site on their server since 2017. I had 2 major issues with them, each issue after they upgraded the servers. Last time I gave up hosting the site with them. Basically, now their technical support is almost non-existent, they answer late and the answers have nothing to do with reality. Basically, you have to send the same question several times until you find the one who knows. As usual, you are told that your website is to blame, that there is an enigmatic script that consumes resources. Even if your site has never been modified in recent years. And then they recommend upgrading the site.
Attempted to use for a Minecraft server. UI was confusing and difficult. Help center/support was misleading and confusing. Server stopped working and it lead to a cascade of issues trying to fix it. Customer support refused to refund the remainder of the year I had purchased. I just give up feeling let down and mislead.
Not recommended at all I bought from them hosting for 3 years and it did not suit my needs and they were not willing to give me anything back even though I asked for only partial refund they wanted to give partial refund only to buy their products (which do not suit my needs) just shame they have no humanity
