I have a well-settled online business of crockeries. For that business I have a shared hosting plan with Chemicloud. Until then I haven’t got any issu...
e with their service. Currently, I am launching my new website home decore for that I got Domainracer ‘s shared hosting.
First, I was scared but now I am very satisfied with their initial startup support and all.
Like many others, I used to be a client of a great hosting company (Byte) that got bought by Combell. Combell then cuts off all the innovation, client...
service. If you dont pay attention, you pay very premium prices for services that they offer for free to new clients.

Just cheack their features:
128 MB ram
They force me to keep paying another 38 euro's for a free Let's Encrypt
Cancellation on a year basis! Terrible.
Bad attitude when they know I m migrating server due to technical issues
I used it for 2 years and as a Senior Developer, I would not recommend this to anyone. They miss interpreted the word grace period once they came to k...
now I m not going to continue first they asked to pay for the grace period and then suspended the account 10 hours before ending the grace period and insisted to buy for one more month to recover the data if required.
I have used many hosting services including aws, godaddy, BlueHost, hostgator, Contabo, OVS, etc for different clients in my entire professional career but chemcloud is very opportunist.
also, their technical staff is so much incompetent that often they refuse to install some packages or install them in a way that is not useful and generates issues.
Personally, I would not recommend it to any of my clients.
