e with their service. Currently, I am launching my new website home decore for that I got Domainracer ‘s shared hosting.
First, I was scared but now I am very satisfied with their initial startup support and all.
Softlayer is no longer a good hosting solution. Save yourself the headaches and avoid them.
Softlayer used to be a good company to have for hosting. Little by little it has become less support and more fees - everywhere. They just closed a da...
tacenter in Dallas - they sent out migration emails to people saying that servers were being migrated. Not very clear.
They literally turned off all servers in that datacenter even if you were a paying client, and proceeded to flat delete all data. If you missed the email, tough. I have spoken with others that were affected by this, same response. " We will give you 2 free months of service, but your data is gone ". Considering that these servers were virtuals, they could have literally just migrated the files to operational servers, instead they send emails, and just shut you off. Period. This is horrible and unprofessional. AVOID AT ALL COSTS.
Bad attitude when they know I m migrating server due to technical issues
I used it for 2 years and as a Senior Developer, I would not recommend this to anyone. They miss interpreted the word grace period once they came to k...
now I m not going to continue first they asked to pay for the grace period and then suspended the account 10 hours before ending the grace period and insisted to buy for one more month to recover the data if required.
I have used many hosting services including aws, godaddy, BlueHost, hostgator, Contabo, OVS, etc for different clients in my entire professional career but chemcloud is very opportunist.
also, their technical staff is so much incompetent that often they refuse to install some packages or install them in a way that is not useful and generates issues.
Personally, I would not recommend it to any of my clients.
