ackup and support within record time. Saved me from a panic attack. Truly appreciate that! Some cons: a bit slower than my previous BlueHost, but definitely far less expensive. Also uses the latest MySQL on VPS only, not shared hosting.
Since I've been using this hosting I've had a lot of problems with resource allocation to my site, a lot of errors regarding ...展开
caching and connection to database even in moments when user count is at it's lowest, it seems like those errors are in the moments when their US based company has the highest user connections. After one such crash I wasn't able to get my backup because they do not make full backups and afterwards suggested me to pay for it extra or do it manually. It seems that business shared plan is as overloaded as they basic shared plans.
And now they just terminated my websites and asked for me to join cloudflare, to point my DNS there so i can reduce the load of my page because they are saying that my page has made a big impact on their servers even though they can't provide me logs with data that could prove that and I haven't received any warnings regarding high load. My website is now offline for 3 days. I have to wait for CloudFlare support because I cannot change DNS myself there. So I have no clue for how long time my sites will be offline. Support doesn't respond to my questions regarding refunds of lost time and they just force me to register at CloudFlare and say that if I don't do that my site will be removed. I think that since Arvixe is a partner of CloudFlare this is just a scam to get more customers to CloudFlare. Because I've been running my script for 8 years on multiple hostings and never had a such problem with high loads.
Terrible Customer Service - One to Avoid!
We've been customers of Rackspace for more than 15 years and in the old days consid...展开
ered them one of our best suppliers - providing a responsive and excellent service that lived up to their Fanatical Service promise. We recommended them to our own customers.
However, in recent years, our experience has been very different, reaching a climax of awful customer service in 2019 when we finally decided enough was enough and we needed to find another supplier.
In the final few months we have had:
Extraordinarily slow responses to requests for quotes for new service.
A blank refusal to quote us for the cloud based service they trumpet - presumably because this would reduce our costs.
Account managers telling us verbally that we were out of contract and then declaring when we tried to cancel our contracts that we needed to give them 90 days notice on the contracts that had ended and then telling us that we would have to pay another nine months for half of the services they provided, which they claimed were still in contract, in direct contradiction to what they'd told us by phone,
An initial refusal to escalate our complaints and then a claim to have escalated our complaint that we found difficult to believe since we had no contact whatsoever from a more senior manager.
Perhaps most tellingly, when I sent them a copy of their own 'Fanatical Service' promise they claimed to have no knowledge of it but promised to pass it to their legal department to see if it had any legal meaning - who again never contacted us.
When a company's employees have no awareness of their organisation's service promises you really have to question their worth, particularly when they clearly have no connection to the organisational culture.
There are MUCH better suppliers out there - avoid this one.
