The exclusive and secret Dotster offer - No Discount, from $3.75/mo to $4.75/mo
I heartily would NOT RECOMMEND Dotster as a host. I have been a customer since 2008, and after having been through a bunch of other poor hosts, was relieved that I never, ever had issues with Dotsterhost, which has recently changed, and was only aware of my sites being down once for a short period in the entire time I was a hosted there. I have purchase more than 3 dozen domains through Dotster, and have advised my clients since 2008 to use Dotster (formerly Dotsterhost). I design sites, am an IT professional, and can follow instructions and procedures. The VERY SHORT VERSION: All my domains are down and lost, due to their SUPPORT INCOMPETENCE, lack of caring, etc etc.. It is Saturday night. I should be ENJOYING myself. Instead, I am scrambling to figure out what the hell is wrong with these people, and RANTING MAD. Sorry for all the shouting, but I AM UP THE CREEK RIGHT NOW. My frustration level is THROUGH THE ROOF. You know, you've been there. If you haven't, and dont want to GO there, then DO NOT USE DOTSTER. They used to be good and NOW ARE NOT.
My problems started when Dotster suddenly closed access to files. My first E-mail to their customer support came back unresponded. After the second E-mail, 10 days later, they asked me... to provide information about my account. It makes me a clear impression that these guys are not reliable and not well-organized.
Dotster is the worst host I've ever tested. When you install wordpress, it takes about 20 seconds for your homepage to load. When you connect to FTP, you get timeouts and errors. I've got a really fast connection and never had problems like these. Dotster is NOT RECOMMENDED. Please stay away from them as far as possible. You'll thank me later.
I hate their control panel i can't tell you how many times I have been locked out of my website. Plus they change the access with no notification. After I renewed (2 years) I found out I was locked out again, and sicne the tech support didn't understand the website builder I had used (CUTE tlx files) he hung up on me. The poor customer service far outweighs the reliability.
