So in 2020, after being told by AbeloHost that the DMCA-ignored hosting had some limits (They ignore a certain amount of DMCA but at some point they will ask you to move out) - I decided to go with Flaunt7 as it seemed the best choice.

Positive points:
- Cheap. You can host many websites on the same plan
- Fast.

Negative point:
- Unreliable. I had a server go down multiple times. One of the servers I have is down 8 days in a row now and support is not doing anything beside:

- Will gladly steal your money? I had a recurring payment with them in February 2021. After stopping the server, they kept charging my paypal automatically. I opened a ticket. I will let you read the whole conversation. I've been patient but patience has its limits (a year+)

In conclusion:
- beware of your payments, you'll never get a refund.
- do not host critical sites without backups. They can go down anytime and will not help you

Well, looking at just threads and posts from this year, yeah... It doesn't look too good.

Also, just searched for their reviews on Google, and it looks like they decided to go down! Shame...

You are correct, for more than 8 days server is down but still, the issue is not resolved.

It won't be resolved. I'm pretty sure they lost the server and since the support is outsourced, data is lost forever.
I cut all my payment and lost 60 sites. F them.

It pains when such things happen. And those bot replies you got are a horrible thing to experience. Did you finally raise a dispute in Paypal ? If not, you would not have waited so long, as you gave them enough of time to resolve the issue. I have never used Flaunt7, but I've heard that in their service, access to cPanel is very often down and they always blame that on DDOS attacks !!! And someone mentioned to me that Flaunt7 deleted his blog with 3 years of blogging content with more than 3000 post (with backup), for no reason and all his relevant Flaunt7 subscriptions were active. And he had no other backup of his blog. Imagine that pain.

I didn't raise a dispute at the time because I was afraid they would take down the current 2 servers I had with them, effectively shutting my sites down. I didn't need the money but in retrospect, I gave them more money that they deserved

A little update on my case: since I paid via Paypal, I disputed 6 month of transaction. I won & got fully refunded. They didn't even answer or anything. Just do it if you're in the sale case as me.

Now move to other provider and then choose a good provider if specially here in the forum you have many like Alexhost, TheOnionHost etc.
Read the rules of TOS / AUP before buying or ask them before buying it.

Guys do me a favour, get used to aws ec2, digital ocean, linode, contabo and so on. These are excellent providers that will never let you down. Don’t cheap out on the thing that feeds you.
