I have dealing with a lot of hosting companies, but the ones that i really hate are the ones who try and take my money misleading me and then charging my bank card hidden fees.
I resently signed up with 3 new hosting companies to get my wordpress up and running on my own website,. i picked 3 that http://www.wordpress.org recommend I picked yahoo, who are simply the best to me over all, and with each host they offered a package for 7-8 dollars per month which sounded reasonable to me. 2 of the host not only have great cpanel control features and are just what they advertise to be and i am very happy with them.
the third one has turned into a nightmare, first of all they advertise that the hosting plan is 7.95 per month so i signed up, using my credit card, i always print everything cause its new and im using my credit card duh… anyhoo at the end of the deal they say you get a month free, but what they dont tell you is that they are not actually charging you 7.95 per month but they are in fact charging you for a whole year which comes right under 100.00 so again i didnt see the hidden cost and they dont tell you, they mislead you into thinking you are paying 7.95 and that that first 7,95 is free. so when the invoice prints out at the end of the transatiction it says you owe 0.00 nothing.
then the next day when i check my back account it shows they have waved 7.95 and yet they have charged my account 95.00!! so now i am totally on fire and livit because they took money from my account that i did not tell them to take. so i write them and tell them they are misleading people into thinking they are only spending 7.95 per month, and ask them to put the money back in my account and cancel my hosting package or I will file a fraud charge with my bank against them. This is still day 2. mind you.. They write back…and i quote:
Surely this isn’t the case, we very clearly state this both on the order form, and the confirmation of the order form (still, before you are signing up). The total is clearly displayed to you before any money is taken from your account, and this method of billing is a standard.
I’m sorry you found this to be misleading, but i would recommend carefully selecting your host, as this method of billing is the standard in web hosting.
Best of luck to you."
lier lier pants on fire, all hosting are not like you, most do what they say they do, the other 2 advertise 7.95 per month and that is what they took from my account, nothing less and nothing more.
so today if my money is not back in my account i am filing a fraud charge and i am going to post the name of the hosting company now so no one else uses them without knowing they have hidden fee charges.
They are called AN Hosting
