Hostinger has gone bad

Yesterday I raised web site on the Hostinger hosting, which is familiar to me (convenient, understandable, tech. adequate support), and previously created many projects on it.
So, today I'm trying to "upload" a ready-made site via FTP to an already raised host and linked domain - and I get an error saying that the username or password is incorrect.
I started to figure it out - nothing was solved. After a while, I got into the mail, and came across a letter from Hostinger, which contained the following:
"We are increasing the security level of our network and due to the growing number of complaints and phishing reports, we have reduced the number of free hosting accounts for each client to 2, and we have also disabled FTP access for all free hosting clients.

Anyway, you will be able to upload files without any problems using our File Managers, which are available in the control panel and have more than 3 free hosting accounts if you register with a different email address."
Thus, you can get free hosting on this resource, but you will not be able to upload anything via FTP. I.e., in essence, you have 2GB on the host, but, say, you will fill WordPress with your hands, i.e. creating each folder manually (via a file manager in the browser) and copying into it files are only a certain number at a time. And no one really cares that the hierarchy of such CMS can reach up to 8 or more folders with files in length.
Do you want everything to be like people (FTP and everything) - pay from $5 to $10 a month, tricky - isn't it?
After all the above, I can only say that I don't know why, but I have a feeling that I was thrown. In the beginning, they beckoned with free buns, and then they broke off.

PS: I wrote all this for those who, perhaps, have free hosting on Hostinger or, like me, are engaged in web site development.

Fuck, how do you use this wretched web hosting?? He's retarded, fucked up. If you pay for normal hosting or buy a VPS, you won't know without it.
The bottom line is that it was not necessary to initially provide a bunch of useful things for free.

What is meant in this context as a "freebie" is available on other web hosting services absolutely for free.

Hostinger is one of the most popular hosting companies (well, advertising is everything). Against the backdrop of price increases, it goes without saying that prices for hosting provider services will also increase, and we, for a moment, are talking about free use. The maximum that I can offer is to choose a hosting company with a free tariff for 5 GB in ftp, but it will have the same fate, but a little later. In general, my advice is to use a paid package from a hosting provider, even purely for testing sites.

Pumping out money and nerves!!
I transferred the domain name to hostinger, it ended, there are no notifications and information about how to renew anywhere, the renewal button on the site itself does not work (an error occurred when trying to pay), support does not work all the time, writes "overload" and the button is not active.

As a result, I was lucky to talk to the manager two weeks later, who billed the domain and attention, some kind of commission for non-renewal, which is 4 times higher than the cost of the domain itself.
God is with that commission, but after the payment I'm sitting again and trying to contact support because the domain still Doesn't WORK.

Is it really difficult to spend at least the money that you take for a commission without managers? It's a living hell, I haven't seen such shit in a long time.
Bottom line: never in your life put your projects on the hostinger, especially if they are important, believe me, it will come to light later, it's better to suffer and get used to a different interest than to sit in this sucking loot, spit swamp!

Hello. I myself have been using Hostinger hosting for a long time, I am very pleased with its work. Yes, you need to pay for it to get all the tools for the job, but it's definitely worth it. If you want free hosting, be prepared for a lower level of service right away.
