BE AWARE: Domain.com runs VERY SNEAKY BUSINESS. Simple example - I was extending my domains for another 4 years. Advertised prices did not match actual charges at the end.
I tried to get explanation, but they prefer to keep real prices hidden. All you see is "promotional prices".
Here we go:
Chat ID: xxxxxxxx
Initial Question: I am seeing a charge of 10.99 instead of 8.99 for domain privacy for the next year. Why is it sold as "8.99 per year" and later charged 10.99?
10:25:09 PM Deeksha C: Hi, my name is Deeksha, how are you today?
10:25:29 PM Ted: Hi, I'm not happy with the fact that one price is advertised and anther charged
10:26:27 PM Ted: Why my account is showing Domain privacy as 10.99 as opposed to 8.99?
10:27:57 PM Ted: Are you with me?
10:28:04 PM Deeksha C: Yes, I check for you.
10:28:12 PM Deeksha C: To protect your account from unauthorized changes, can you please verify for me the answer to the Security Question: What is your mother's maiden name?

First off... I am reviewing domain.com and am merely in this position for a client of mine I have recently began work for. I had to do a simple task such as change the nameservers to point to their new servers.

Let's start with the 30 minute wait time just to have my Live Chat acknowledged. I am certain that puts people in a good mood... didn't work for me however.

Next is reviewing their client area. It is incredibly archaic and every element of their system seems to be out-dated. The words User Interface DO NOT exist in their arena. The dashboard is incredibly hard to navigate as there is no direction... just looks for various promotion and incredibly out-dated FAQs.

The domain wasn't listed in the clients dashboard whom just renewed the domain around 3 weeks before me writing this message. All I saw was an expired domain that the client had around 3 years ago. I contacted live support in an attempt to get to the bottom of this mystery.

Support didn't ask me anything [read more...]

Worst support out there
I've used their services for three years and been happy with it. This is the first time I've seen that something is out of order on their website, and here's were everything goes wrong. Several services have not worked for me the last month and when I contact them, the only answer I get is: "There is nothing wrong at our end, check your end."
There is obiously something wrong and they refuse to fix it.
I've now for the fifth time received a "There is nothing wrong at our end, check your end"-message and we're now about to change hosting client. What ever you do, don't use domain.com!!

Total none-logical service
Since more than 3.0 years I have subscribed to domain.com and, yes there were various goof-ups including non-knowledegable technical staff ever since 2009

The latest dis-service, however, slams out the bottom of the jar.

In recognition of the latest and absolutely worst mismanagement of technology and software application and planning is the fact that my web-site building software with which I worked for more than 3.0 years was simply discontinued by domain.com and I can just start from scratch.

Thank you Domain.com

Domain.com is the worst, Avoid at all costs!
I have been with domain.com for a couple of years and I am going to try and put this into appropriate words!

Do not ever use domain.com for anything - they are the worst hosting company I have ever encountered in 15 years of hosting. They are completely useless when you need support to such an extent that you will not believe me if I go into details.

Basically, on the last incident, they crashed and deleted all my 15 sites, 2 months later recovered some of them and my main site is lost forever, after 3-4 months of downtime I eventually managed to do a domain transfer thank goodness. We will have to do a complete re-development at our own expense. In all this time their support and help and communication was ridiculous and dismal. The take weeks to answer a support ticket. Yes not hours or days, weeks, even months!

They constantly reset your dns records and then all your emails crash for 1-2 days.

Worst hosting company in the world ever
Since purchasing hosting with this company in 2011 we have had so many problems. The main issue is that their customer support is appalling, which means that any problem takes ages to be dealt with and in our case, only after several incredibly stupid responses from domain.com which even with our limited knowledge reek of ignorance about web hosting. Our business has now been 6 weeks without emails. Apparently they changed servers last year without telling customers, changed online platforms, changed nameservers, all resulting in products not working. Did they inform their customers? No. Instead we are left with nothing working and no help from their customer support whatsoever. Trying to get hold of anyone in customer service with reasonable intelligence is impossible. We have come to the conclusion that our only choice is to leave them and go elsewhere. Cheap they may be, but the cost is priceless damage to our business, innumerable amounts of stress, emails, phone calls and time [read more...]

Absolute waste!
I used domain.com solely for registering my domain. I had it so my domain would then "point to" the URL of my host site - Square Space. Everything was fine for the first year. However, it seemed that once they "updated" their system and Control Panel, everything that had been working, no longer does. I've tried everything I could think of to get my domain to point to my host again, but it no longer works, and of course, customer service does not respond. Don't bother with Domain.com. Save your time and money and use another, more trustworthy, domain service.

If you want to see the problems you get from Domin.com go look at the side links on the left hand side of www.telestations.com/ and www.metromansworld.tv/ you will see for the past 5 day's all the links are broken. That will cause lower standings with search engines and persons will stop to visit that social network, Persons with links to me will remove them because they are now seen as broken. I hope a group of persons launch a class action against them for the problems they caused. All because of The Incompetent staff at Domain rune your hard work.com After they fix the problem they caused i will be migrating to Host Papa or Host Apoun or 1 of the 3 European service providers i use.

IMCOMPETENT
There is basically zero customer service, you will wait a minumum 30minutes to get someone on the phone who is usually not helpful at all. Their platform change has been in progress for the entire year I have had their hosting services. They have repeatedly screwed up my mail settings, and have had over 2 weeks total down time for my COMPANY WEBSITE during the last year.

After fixing the mail settings numerous times, (each person I spoke to told me the previous person did it wrong) the mail settings would be lost again within a week and I had many many lost emails. I HAVE LOST BUSINESS because of this company, and then they have the balls to call me and ask if I want to renew at the same price???? I explained my experience and asked what they were prepared to offer me for all the headaches they have caused, and they said they will renew it for the standard price as usual. I couldn't stop laughing! STAY FAR AWAY FROM DOMAIN.com

Sucks!
They suspended my account without notification.

I have called on 5 separate occasions to resolve the issue and they assured me it will be within 24-48hrs, almost 2 months later... still suspended!

I wait a minimum of 15 min on hold each time I call.

advice: Don't pay in advance, just month to month... that way when you find out how bad their service is, you can cancel.

Not much to say here, if you use them and get NO support whatsoever, ever, dont say you were not warned. I have never experienced such bad service, it's awfull, rediculous, they must be subsidised by someone because surely they cannot make a proffit this way!

Bit of a learning curve, but great service!
I just signed up with Domain.com last week to transfer my six domains to save money, to keep all my domain names and domains in one place, and also because Domain.com is known for not having any appreciable down time.

At first I had a lot of problems with the transfer process, but the rep and tech support walked me through everything over the phone. All the problems I encountered were due to my lack of knowledge about some parts of the process, but once I caught on everything transferred and all sites are now running smoothly, including email. It took about 36 hours to complete the entire process (there is a certain amount of wait time for the domain hosts and Whois to complete the process). I experienced about two hours down time, but that was because my email addresses with my old hosting company and Domain.com did not match and Whois didn't like that. So it's little things like that that can throw a wrench in the works. Still, Domain.com personnel were able to find out what was [read more...]

Apalling support reply time
I have been with domain.com for years and have stayed with them as I find it very easy to set up domains and used to love their live chat. Now the customer support is apalling. You are waiting for days for any questions to be replied to and there is a lot of bugs (in my opnion) that make smooth operation difficult. The email set is always a problem for me and there is never anyone to sort it out for days when you set up a case.

Really annoyed at the moment. I now can't access my email through the website as they have changed the log in????????

This is the most useless and frustrating expeience i have ever had with a hosting company. On average, it takes about 20 minutes to get a live person, when they come on they are either rude or very indifferent. My website and email service were down several times and they kept making several changes to my web data, the sites was even down for over 2 weeks. I don't know what impact their migration had, but this company is a nightmare that should be avoided at all costs. I am moving my websites elsewhere as I am totally frustrated and not getting a reasonable response from domain.com

Bad Business, Overcharges & Rude Support Staff
I made the mistake of trying to register a simple domain with these guys which should have cost me less than $15. I never got the domain and their support folks couldn't figure out why--blamed it on a system transfer that they were going through. But they DID manage to charge my bank account for over $100. I tried to get support to help me a second time and they responded by hanging up on me.
Do yourself a favor and go with anyone else except Domain.com!

I purchased my domain and hosting services from domain.com in April. My site has gone down multiple times due to something domain.com is doing on their end. I keep calling customer service and every time they say it will be fixed in 72 hours and that doesn't happen. I spend 10-30 minutes on hold every single time I try to call customer service. I just called customer service and waited on hold for 25 minutes then the call dropped, I am currently still on hold waiting for customer service, it's absolutely ridiculous. What is the point of paying hosting service if they don't host the site, seems simple.

Hosting was terrible, site would stop resolving frequently. So I switched to another hosting provider, but left my domains here. Now they have messed up the site dns more than once, so my site keeps crashing. Customer service is impossible to get on the phone.

Domain.com fell off a cliff since may 2012. Absolutely HORRIBLE now!!
As of May 2012 domain.com is pure garbage! They attempted to migrate everything to a new system and are failing miserably. Do NOT get hosting from domain.com unless you want long wait times for dns propagation (8 days and running in my case) and 25+ min wait times to get ahold of a customer service rep (who is clueless and doesn't even have the authority to actually help you). I have been fighting them for 8 days trying to get a few DNS entries correct in their new (and MUCH less reliable) system. It is literally as simple as migrating a zone file to a different server and they can't get it right. On top of that, as I type this their entire control panel and their own website is offline. Are you serious domain.com? If you can't even keep your own site up, how do you think that makes us customers feel about your competence? Well, i think I'm off to find a new hosting company!

Where the hell are their customer service people? Where do you email them for any issues? My email service from them have not able to receive emails for almost a month. I can't get hold of them, and I am losing potential business over this! Any body have any ideas or suggestions?...what a *%&^ nightmare!

Reliable, good email customer support
I've gradually increased service uses and all has thus far worked impeccably, from domain registration (>15) to site hosting/management (>10). Interfaces are not the most recent and vary among services; gets the job done efficiently once you know your way around.

Can only highly recommend.

domain.com is the worst
unbelievably slow... terrible. I have to go to somebody else, any advice? First loading of my page takes often more tha 2-3 minutes. Several times tried to make my case - their response is it works fine.... When anybody outside of domain.com wants to load my page, they say the same. Domain.com loads standartly within secconds. Our page does take several minutes. I have never seen anything like that....

Epic, costly disaster
Transferred several domains yesterday to take advantage of Domain.com's low rates. Forwarding email proved to be an impossibilit (seemed simple enough once i actually located the correct page, "orded" the service for $0, then returned to the domain control page to enter the address where i wanted mail forwarded to, but emails simply bounce back), and as of this afternoon my website isn't working either (something to do with name servers? Every hour or so my site seems to come up ok, but two minutes later goes into 404 land again). Dozens of emails (through their hopelessly confusing "case" system - no email address available for them) and no response at all, not even to say "we'll get back to you.) Phone calls reach a constantly closed call center. My customers have been calling all day and evening to find out why their emails bounce back and why my site is down. I can't even begin to guess how much money I have lost, and the embarrassment is possibly even more costly.

Horrible Service, and DO NOT CARE their email servers are all blocked by [...]
Their hosting plan used to be a decent deal; not the cheapest but not the most expensive.

I would not have even thought about changing domains, except within the last two months my shared hosted plan (which shares email servers) has had a problem where 90% of all my email gets returned as being blocked for spam.

I contacted Domain.com to see what we could do. They explained they understand that their email servers are being blocked and said its the 'chance' you take opting for a shared hosting account.

I asked if they were monitoring the email server to see who the offenders were, so they could remove them or limit their services to avoid getting the whole shared email service blocked. They indicated that although they don't condone this kind of spam behavior, they have no intention of taking any sort of action against the spam accounts.

I have since contacted godaddy.com who have stated it is a potential problem with shared accounts, but they take active measures to [read more...]

Worst registrar I've ever dealt with.
I was foolish to fall in to their advertising. They advertised everywhere and I thought it would be a good idea to give them a shot but I was sadly mistaken. The initial domain registration went pretty smoothly, however it was all downhill after that. Their control panel is very buggy, even something as simple as a nameserver change wasn't possible. After you set your nameserver, there's no way to update/change it later on. Their DNS management is a joke and never goes through. I tried contacting support, after waiting five days they just closed my ticket without even replying. Now I'm switching to Namecheap and domain.com **still** hasn't transfered my domain, it's been over five days.

Stay away. Far away.

Domain.com has the worst technical support I have ever experienced in 13 years of web development. They don't understand their own products and services, they give bad advice and they don't follow through on commitments.

With all the good hosting companies out there, there is absolutely no reason to use domain.com. Avoid at all costs.

domain.com ... worst in everything
Domain.com is awful... of all the registrars and hosting companies I have dealt with. Domain.com is by far the worse. Unfortunately a client registered their domain through domain.com. Their control panel blows, their support ticket system blows and they close cases without responding. They were charging my client $49/mo for site maintenance on a site that was never built as they agreed. Didn't even bother asking for a refund. Everything about them is frustrating. Tired of dealing with them the last few days. Wanna be far away from them as possible. We transfered the domain to godaddy and domain.com still has not sent us the info we need to finalize the transfer. Domain.com sux big balls.... excuse my lack of vocabulary.

Don't use them for hosting
The worst hosting I've used. It took me over 4 hours to install Joomla through their system. Their FTP service is crap and I had to manually recheck files on multiple occasions. Also load time was extremely slow. A very poor service. I recommend you use someone else.

Difficult to navigate options. Always tries to force you to buy more 'features' and hides useful tools.
Puts crap on website until you upload data, and even then it constantly 'loses' data and puts crap back up.

The customer service reps have absolutely no idea what they are talking about. I bought a domain which went smoothly but then when I went open e-mail accounts, they charged me twice at first. Then they signed me up for the wrong type of e-mail and then another rep signed me up for the wrong e-mail again.

After deciding not to use their e-mail service I unfortunately had to have the domain servers transferred which took 4 days for domain.com to get right.

The whole company has no idea what they are talking about.

I moved to domain.com for domain registration and dns services. They provide no notice whatsoever that a domain needs to be renewed. Today I found that my primary domain had just been terminated with no notice or grace period. I immediately renewed it, which I generally do. However, at the end of the day it still does not work. It did not take long to stop working but their website message says it may take 72 hours to get back. Meanwhile a parked domain page with ads (which they probably profit from) is displayed.

Because this is the primary domain for my server I cannot use ssh, telnet or ftp the way I normally do. Both verio and I wasted quite a bit of time trying to figure out what was wrong. The sendmail server is addressed as mail.domain.com so I cannot send mail, still.

I have sent three contact forms in. THe last escalated it to major impact when I found I cannot use the sendmail server. No response, still no name resolution. If they are going to shut it off so quickly [read more...]

They are horrible. Customer service is not service at all. They said they would get back to me in 24 hours via email and it's three days later and still no word! They're not user friendly and I suggest you not waste your time.

Hi -

I just thought I'd add another negative review for the statistics. When reading the other negative posts, I had a strong case of deja vu, because everything mentioned below is exactly what I went through. I am changing hosts and hope to live a life where I don't stress about whether or not my website will be operational today. Life's much too short to be worrying about such things.

Oh, I guess I'm supposed to comment on the following things:
PRICE: fine, but with all the stress involved, it's much too high.
CUSTOMER SUPPORT: I had to call 6 times before I actually talked to someone who actually knew what was happening.
UPTIME: I don't know what this means.

I've been using domain.com's VPS services for 7 months now. Up until last week, I haven't had many issues. Last Friday, I decided to patch my server and reboot it to the new kernel. Big Mistake! My server never came back up. I log into my control panel and try to start my server up. No luck, it fails. I try restarting in repair mode, no luck. Searching google for the error returned, I found the fix to be a simple restart of a service on the host. I open a ticket on Friday afternoon via email. I get a response 24 hrs later saying it would be resolved within 24 hrs later. Tuesday afternoon, no response. I call technical support, they say issue will be resolved shortly. Weds morning, still no server up. Call support, engineer will be in office in 3 hrs and will look at ticket. 8 hours later, no response still. Call back, nobody has looked at my ticket. It's being "escalated." 5.5 days and counting and my server is still down.

I can't vouch for their shared web [read more...]

We recently migrated our website to a domain.com hosting package, and I have to say we are unbelievably disappointed. Their control panel, while it does have a lot of features, is unbearably buggy and slow. There will be times when I will have to reload a page 5 or 10 times for it to appear, and sometimes wait upwards of 5 minutes for an action to be performed. When time matters it can be very frustrating to have to deal with this control panel.

But the biggest problem I've had so far has been support. To say it's been non-existent would be too generous. When I've called them directly, I'm given very vague answers with no concrete solution. I typically end up Googling the problem and trying to figure it out for myself. When I've emailed support, I receive one or two sentence replies that always end with 'we do not support coding, so I can't tell you how to do this.' I understand they don't want to have to debug problems, but they don't offer possible search terms or more [read more...]

I signed up based on the offerings presented on the website as a great deal. I wanted to use the osCommerce that they state is provided with the hosting. After signing up I was unable to install it and waited 2 weeks for an email reply back stating it is DISABLED in the control panel and I have to upload it myself. Fine, I did and ran into all sorts of problems getting it configured. After waiting more WEEKS on an email from support I called and waited for 45 minutes before I talked to a tech that had NO technical knowledge. They wont address development issues, they wont address page load speed issues, they wouldn't even tell me the correct paths to connect to THEIR server (the tech did not know, and the tier 2 relayed through him that they cant tell me that). The page load times were in the 1-2 minute range for the secure pages. I switched hosts the next day and did the same install myself, everything worked fine. In fact I made an unintentional deletion of the config file [read more...]

My first time setting up a domain and website on my own and Domain.com has turned out to be a very bad choice it seems.

I worked 3 long days to set up the website content (Sitebuilder is cumbersome and difficult to space and layout well)...initially they published a sheet that wasnt even the one I set up...after many attempts with Techs we were able to re-access the actual site I had set up...but only through Domain.com Account Users process....

I nor anyone else can access the Website through a typical web search so what am I paying for anyway.....now I'm faced with transferring my website to someone and risk losing much of what I worked so hard and long on...or worse yet perhaps, I transfer in a less that satisfactory site from Sitebuilder and I'm not able to edit it into the nice looking website I need to present to my ongoing and potential new customers.

Whether you are a beginner, novice or professional.....Domain.com is simply a bad choice!!

Everything about their website looks great and gives you great confidence that you're selecting a great hosting service. They have what seems to me to be a good selection of software that can be added to your website - one of these is moodle (www.moodle.org).

But after installing moodle on my website, I kept getting internal server errors (500). They would come and go. I contacted their customer service, and one of their reps got back to me saying that I was forwarding to another hosting service. I was not. So the rep tried again saying that I was putting all my files in the wrong folder. I was not. So the rep tried again and got to a part of the website that was working and copy-pasted some info into a response saying that everything was working. My problem was with a different part of the website and was *intermittent* so it's no surprise that the rep got something that was working.

In another issue, my web-pages take between 8ms and 8000ms to load. The same page can [read more...]

Their customer service is awful-I've sent several emails over the past three months and never got any response. I've called multiple twice, and only twice have I actually made it through the extremely long wait times. Their Sitebuilder tool is terrible, leaving way too much empty space at the top, with no way to adjust it. I would NEVER recommend Domain.com to anyone!

I bought Domains from their website.

Someone tried to login using my account but he couldn't.

They blocked my access, and told by a message that I have to contact them there.

I tried to contact them hundred times, but with no response.

By the way, I am getting my message back from both emails and Help Requests I am sending them throughout their website form.

Their support is too bad, I think there is no support at all!!!
