WHAT CUSTOMERS SAY:

Below is a summary of the feedback we gathered from the company's ACTUAL customers:

Pros:

None found!

Cons:

* UnlimitedGB chose to spam my blog in order to get customers; I believe that spamming is an illegal practice, and since it chose to engage in one illegal activity, what other illegal activities would it not engage in? I declare it a scam because it cannot bring in customers using valid forms of advertising! Would you entrust your business to such a scammy company? Nope! It is the kind of company you must avoid at all costs!

* They lie when they claim to offer 99.99% uptime. On top of that, UnlimitedGB debited my bank account twice for the same transaction. In other words, UnlimitedGB is all about using an unlimited amount of your hard earned money!

* Think twice before joining UnlimitedGB! Their '100K free templates' offer is a lie just to lure customers. Everytime I asked them to activate my free web templates account, they provided me with a temporary password that expired after two days; this went on for several times, after which I got fed up and switched hosts! I do NOT recommend UnlimitedGB!

* Their demo is fine but once you start hosting with them for real, it becomes a nightmare experience for you! I have had a lot of errors such as trouble uploading files, problem getting email accounts to work, and more! Chasing down the support guys and getting any resolution from them is a fruitless exercise!

* UnlimitedGB is a useless company; it does not offer any quality customer service at all! These people don't know what to do to prevent their server from getting hacked, and when I got hacked twice, they refused to give me my website backup! Then one day, without intimating me at all, they suspended my account for 'server overload'! Bottom line, UnlimitedGB is the worst hosting provider ever!

* Their claim about "Live chat' is almost a lie; most of the time, there is no one to handle the chat, and even when you get someone to chat with, they do not have a clue about what to do! I asked for my money back but am yet to hear back from them. What do I do? Will I ever get my money back?

* My advice: please do NOT go anywhere near this hosting company called UnlimitedGB, or you would get duped! It has been 3 weeks and my website is still not active! The support staff is either clueless or ignorant about what is going one. I have no idea if I would ever get my money back!

* UnlimitedGB is a fraudster and scammer in reality. I opened a hosting account with them on November 29 and they suspended my account next year on January 24 without giving me a prior notice. The reason for the suspension, as they put it, was 'due to a violation of terms of service'. However, they refused to elaborate any further and simply said that they cannot 'UN-suspend' my account. I am planning on taking legal action against them!

* I was hosting a domain with them. One day, all of a sudden, they suspended my account due to 'excess server load'! I asked them why there was such an excessive server load during the past week when I did not change a thing in my domain account? I also asked them to UN-suspend my Cpanel so that I could investigate the matter. They gave me access to Cpanel only for a day and suspended my account again. The domain reports I got from Cpanel logs DO NOT corroborate with what the hosting company claims about server overload. My advice: DO NOT buy hosting space from UnlimitedGB, ever!

* NEVER do business with UnlimitedGB! I signed up for a hosting account with them but my website could not be accessed from a lot of IP addresses. When I contacted them, they refused to help me!

* UnlimitedGB is a pathetic hosting company and it is better that you stay away from them. First off, they claim 99.99% uptime guarantee but all I get is a server suffering from a long duration of downtime and several internal server errors, such as "Service Unavailable", "Internal Server Error", "URL could not be retrieved" etc. Secondly, their support is cr*p. Third, although they claim to offer 100-day money back guarantee, they refused to refund my money saying that it is the customer's responsibility to check out the product fully (their demo account) before making the purchase!

*Please stay away from UnlimitedGB! From day 1, my emails services were dysfunctional! Since my business relies a lot on emails, I lost hundreds of dollars per day for being unable to either send or receive emails properly. Support guys are all illiterate and do not have a clue about what to do!

* UnlimitedGB is made up of a bunch of cheaters. I lost my money on them. Instead of focusing on solving their customers' problems, they sit back and watch Tamil movies during their work hours! If you ask for help, they make you wait for hours and then ask you to mail (SNAIL mail) their support staff because they don't have any clue! They claim to offer 99.99% percent of server uptime but do not even offer 80%; they also lie about their server speed - in reality, they have really slow servers which crawl at a snail's space. Plus, even the customer testimonials on their website are also false!

* UnlimitedGB is a scam and fraud company. Stay away from UnlimitedGB! Their chat support sucks - it is not owned by UnlimitedGB; the chat support handles support of a lot of companies including UnlimitedGB, and every time you have a problem, all they tell you is to open a support ticket! But even those handling support tickets suck; they make you wait for 2 days before responding to your problem, and to say what? 'Please elaborate on your problem a bit further'!!

In the first month everything was fine except that my server suffered several downtimes. Later on, the downtimes became even more frequent and longer! Then one day, they suddenly suspended my account for 'overusing' their services! WTF? I ran only a non-profit site, using just 82 MB of disk space and 2.5 GB of bandwidth, while they claim to offer unlimited GB of bandwidth and disk space! Needless to say, I could hardly believe their statement!

When I asked them to UN-suspend my account, they did that but warned me that if it happens again they will not UN-suspend my account at all. I knew that my account would get suspended again so I immediately asked for a refund in another ticket; however, they refused to give me any refund citing this issue as an excuse. As expected, they suspended my account again and I got no help either from email tickets or phone call! In the end, I moved to another hosting company!

CONCLUSION:

Cr*p company. NOT recommended. F*ckers such as these give the honest Indian entrepreneurs a bad name!

The only way to cancel your account is by submitting a ticket at UnlimitedGB.com with a valid detailed reason as to why you are cancelling your service.
