Important: Only use budget option if you are not expecting a lot of visitors to your site. If you have a big site then I would suggest you to go with this hosting.

Is it worth it? My opinion Yes. Don't expect much if you buy the cheapest starting plan. Hostinger kinda potrays themselves as cheapest hosting but their lower tier plans are only good for super basic site. Even using plugins like updraft, all in one migration will crash your site under normal usage. Yes, value for money. Yes, if you can afford it. Support is great, google cloud servers are used. Uptime is great. Yes, service is okayish but I would not use it. I don't see how it is better than other service. So, if you are getting a super sale deal like I got buy else upto you.

Cons I did not liked their policy of selling ssl for addon domains. Charging extra for cloudflare. Overall too much upselling. Cannot use cloudflare. (Only DNS use is allowed, proxied services do not work).

No free SSL with starter plan.

No File manager interface.

Some plugins are blacklisted.

Server location limited to United States only.
Price. It is a bit on the expensive side. Renewal fees is outrageous. But you get great service and peace of mind. No free ssl with all plans.

Slow speed at all location compared to other services.

Very aggressive upsell spam.

Audience Feedback (if any) Not Satisfied with Support. No free ssl with all plans.

Cloudflare all features not available.
None. Complain about SSL policy.
