I love this company. It's affordable, reliable, and the customer service is nothing short of amazing.

even understand how a robots.txt work (basic sysadmin knowledge) because they set an allow rule to an user agent that had not been disallowed in any previous rule on the robots file. Also, the other day, from another chemicloud account from one of my clients, a support agent on the chat was asking me on the chat how can she check the server response of a page. Another case of an agent lacking basic sysadmin knowledge.
This is not a problem specific to the agent that breaks basic hosting management protocols or the other support agent that didn't know how to use the chrome inspector, both cases are just a signal of how unsustainably is chemicloud escalating its growth. They are not investing enough in support service and this is what will end up breaking up everything. Not the inflated prices compared to competitors, its the terrible support service, because that was the only added value from this company in comparison to the competitors and it used to be brilliant 2 years ago when I came, and I recommended every client to do so. Not anymore, I'm leaving and my clients are leaving.

charges to my credit card. They would pay for domain renewals that I didn't want and charge it to my credit card, and then say, "Oh sorry, our policy is no refunds."
The only way to stop this theft was to cancel my credit card, because they kept doing it! This company seems to be fine to host your site with, just don't give them your credit card, because they will make random charges to your card and tell you that's okay because it's in their fine print.
Personally, I think it's stealing when someone charges something you don't want, and haven't authorized, to your credit card, and then they refuse to return your money.
