They are being especially deceiving with that PayPal authorized icon at the top. They really appear to be trying to come off as a PayPal entity.

I reported them to PayPal but I'm not so sure it will do any good....

Re: www.Hosting-Paypal.com

It's actually not free. You must buy a domain from them first. Then they charge you for support. So I'm guessing by the time you finish needing support and paying for the domain you will have spent 100 bucks!

I love their policies:

Cancellation and Refunds
You may cancel your account at anytime. There are no refunds after your payments! If you choose to cancel your account just let us know BEFORE your next billing cycle. If your account is less than 7 days old you will qualify for a full refund no questions asked if you paid with PayPal, but Paypal charges fees for processing. You may not get a refund after your payment! GO Hosting has the right to terminate that account.

Some refund!

They also seem to be somehow connected with http://www.speeddrive.net

There's another thread now about them dissapearing. All very suspicious...

If hosting-paypal is as good as paypal.... Id shoot myself before going with them

I like their dreamweaver buttons.

And their "donate" button going to a guy named Honjun who I guess is the guy in the picture on the site.
