I see mostly very negative reviews for APlus. They seem to be mostly from novice users who want wordpress like sites to geeks...展開
who want bleeding edge tech. We have been using APlus and the predecessors for some 20 years. We have had maybe 5 hours downtime and no major issues. APlus may not be great, but for us it has proven to be 99.9% reliable and extremely cheap ($9.00 month legacy plan for 8 active websites). The only issue is that they offer premium Comodo SSL certificates, which makes it more expensive for https (typically $90 a year). The good part to the Comodo certs is that they include lots of extras not available with plain vanilla ssl.
I signed up to get 1&1 wifi installed in my flat, the first thing I had to do was check the availability of their services at...展開
this address, for this I used their website, they approved of my location and allowed me to order the internet. I then proceed to pay the router and temporary usb stick in order to have wifi until they complete the installation. These things arrived within two days. For the next month and a half I kept receiving generic emails apologizing for delays or emails asking where in the building exactly my flat was located. They have also at some point sent me an email saying they could not send me what they need for installation because I gave them a wrong address and things could not be delivered, even though I had received the router with no issues several weeks earlier. I received at least 5 same emails to which I all responded. When I said I do not want to receive this same email anymore, I received a letter with the same questions, with the addition of them telling me that the flat number I gave them does not exist and I made a mistake. I then contacted my landlord, just to check, and the number was correct. I told them this, they replied that their services are not available for my address even though the initial check said otherwise, said sorry and requested I send the router back. That is 2 months of paying for their prepaid usb stick and the router, not getting internet installed in my flat, for them to just absolutely nonchalantly say that they will not do it. I am absolutely disappointed and would not recommend dealing with them.
Funnily, after they suspended my contract, I still received generic emails ensuring me someone will come to install the internet within the next week.
I've been a professional in this business for 22 years, and have _never_ dealt with a worse registrar in terms of their onlin...展開
e portal, product management, or technical support. I have been a paying customer for more than 10 years, and... I just can't do it anymore. As a professional systems administrator for a public /16 and more than 150 individual companies, I will not use aplus.net again, nor would I recommend it for any of my customers.
I have used nearly all north-american registrars and have consistently had a better experience with every single one. This is a low bar.
I made the decision more than 10 years ago to give aplus.net a try for my own personal accounts, as it was literally the least expensive at the time. Well as they say: "you get what you pay for." Never again.
