Cartikahosting.com / Overbilling and forcing buyers to upgrade
Cartikahosting.com owes clients money for overbilling. From our own experience, Cartika hosting had continually tried to force us to upgrade our account by claiming we were abusing their TOS and saying we used too much bandwidth. There was no proof whatsoever of this claim and when we asked for proof, they said they would cancel our account if we didn't obey their rules. Thus we immediately moved our websites off their server. Luckily we did this as Cartikahosting did suspend our web hosting. These website cartikahosting.com, cartika.ca, andrewr.biz, cartikahostingreview.com is most likely run by only a couple of people and if you have any problems with the server, it will take a long time for someone to answer. After cancelling our account, we still had money that should have been refunded. Cartikahosting did not refund any money. When they suspended the account, they also charged us for these unused days of hosting. Please be aware that Cartikahosting writes their own reviews and also run their own review site called cartikahostingreview.com. In fact, they work with webhostingtalk.com website so if you write anything negative on any of these websites, they will take down the comment within a few hours. You can try and see for yourself.
So here is our final review of Cartikahosting. After trying out their services, here is our reviews, ratings, compliments and complaints.
Overall Cartikahosting.com does not live up to our standards of what we consider valuable, long term services and quality servers. Their servers are known to have many problems in the past. We believe they will fix these issue however a more serious problem is the company itself.
1. Cartikahosting long term prospects - Poor
2. Cartikahosting Billing and Pricing - Poor
3. Cartikahosting Customer Service - Average
4. Cartikahosting Server uptime - Poor - Average
5. Cartikahosting Control Panel - Very Good (Hsphere)
6. Cartikahosting Overall Rating - Poor - Average
Cartikahosting.com in comparison to other similar web hosting companies is NOT recommended.
We have also noticed that most of their positive reviews are written themselves and take off negative reviews on their own run review website. We have tried to enter our review but it was taken off the next day. We recommend not to trust the following reviews about Cartikahosting as it is misleading to customers. Any web hosting review website with the name Cartikahosting or cartika in it is run by themself and they take off negative reviews. Smart but unethical. You can also review cartikahosting trend and compare it to other companies. You can check websites such as webhosting.info/webhosts/reports/total_domains/cartikahosting.com to find out trends of the hosting company.
