Quote from urlhasbeenblocked-Kevin View Post :
To clarify the situation with the avenues of support - while Chris and I occasionally frequent SlickDeals and answer any direct questions/concerns (to a certain extent to ensure we violate SD site rules), it is still an un-official channel for support, and if you have an urgent matter I recommend contacting us via our helpdesk [urlhasbeenblocked.net] because we have technicians who actively monitor our ticketing system around the clock.

Thanks for the interest,

Kevin
I'm not sure if my sarcasm came through clearly Big Grin

I've actually had a great experience with my VPS so far. I'm a linux sysadmin, so I come to the table already knowing how to use the system, but even so, support from urlhasbeenblocked has been above-and-beyond anything I'd expect for this tier of a VPS. I'm sure you've seen the banter (ref: previous 2 pages of comments) and that was where I was coming from with this sarcastic comment.

I'm also in technical support in my day job -- it is commendable that you would even consider offering support on a 3rd party forum that is completely unrelated to your product. Why anyone would consider this forum to be a valid avenue for timely technical support is, frankly, beyond me...

Your efforts here are appreciated though. Thanks for posting up the deal way-back-when!

No no - it came through loud and clear, I just wanted to make it clear for others reading Smilie

Glad to hear everything is working well for you, I appreciate the kind words.

Honestly your link is not useful one bit... Is it supposed to be negative?
One person asking for advice about a different provider is supposed to turn people away?
There are actually a couple intelligent responses in there that maybe you should read...and I'm talking about the positive ones.

Stay away. My VPS is down more than 48+ hours now. I still can't access my server.

Frown sucks. Every one thought we were crazy when we said it happened to us before. Thankfully I am still up during this down. I would have moved off right away if I had not prepaid a year.

I agree that the way they handled this was mind-blowingly unprofessional... 12+ hours of downtime before even sending out a notification, and when I submitted a ticket after 3+ hours of downtime, I got this cryptic response "We are working on the issue and will be issuing a statement shortly" -- wtf?? Even if they don't have all of the details they should've been way more proactive about this. Yes, downtime is bad, but if the customer has to contact the host about an incident like this, that just makes it worse.

But, seriously... for a vps at this price from a place with this reputation, if anyone wasn't managing their own backups, or running in production on this VPS without any kind of redundancy, they were basically inviting this headache. These days, there just really isn't any reason for someone to not have backups of their own critical data, and some sort of redundancy / quick-restore plan.

Yup, last time I was down for 48 hours, total data loss, no compensation at all, and worthless communication. I am a "backup whore" so I had plenty of remote backups to get back up and going once they were back online.

I submitted a ticket 24 hours ago about restoring my backup. Haven't heard anything from them since.

No, I believed you. I just thought this was a killer deal for a development VPS... don't put anything on it that matters, and maintain your own backups. I'm disappointed that this happened again, but I already got my money's worth.

FYI wasn't trying to call you out specifically. Just the thread in general.
