Hello,

I would like to share what happen w/ WideVPS.

I ordered the VPS on 6/16/2014.

The next day on 6/17/2014 I got the VPS info.

I went to login on 6/18/2014 for the first time. (because I work nights)

It would not let me in. So I logged in to the control panel, and it reports "Suspended"

So I put a ticket in to the support team, and I got this reply:

I let them know that I never even logged into the VPS at all, and it was not from me. They said they are not going to turn the VPS back on, so basicly they stole the 12 bucks from me. I should have checked here before I ordered from them.

I thought I would let everyone know ahead of time.

If they refund my money I will let people know, but I also contacted paypal, and will contact my CC company, because they protect online sales.

As spenchev has said, submit a PayPal dispute. At least you've not paid yearly for the service.

What does their own TOS state?

Most hosts will switch off a VPS if the VPS was involved in an attack.

We would do so, however, we would have investigated whether your story of never having logged in was correct or not.

I would like to ask, how guessable was your password?

If an easily guessable password was used, you might have brought this on yourself.

I totally agree with the ughosting. As you would be the main reason for setting an guessable password that is being hacked & therefore you would not get a refund.

@SalManHulk you do not suspend user accounts when they violate your TOS and take part in ddos attacks?

It sounds to me like they may have received a report from a previous user, and suspended your account without checking the dates.

Too bad, really, because they could have kept you as a paying customer, and you could have received service without all the trouble...

Edit: Now I see the dates on the traffic log, but, eh, what I mentioned is known to happen also.

Still, those Terms seem pretty harsh. 8 hours to solve a problem after VPS is suspended? So what if I just went to bed when they suspended it? Until I wake up it would be too late?

The ticket response also shows that they don't really care about what happens with their customers, just strictly follow some made up guidelines. Alright, they detected an attack, suspended the server, fair enough. And what information is given to the customer? "We do not tolerate these attacks" and nothing more. So if I am a novice and just bought my first VPS I would just stare with astonishment, not knowing what is that in front of me, what the issue is and most important - what solutions do I have to resolve it (even if they are paid ones). In my mind pretty unprofessional.

I see most of the companies struggling with Entertaining Customer tickets and quires even few don't have proper support you to use their contact us page.
Why don't they have own support team and providing 24/7 support? of course there are some extra costs involve but customer satisfaction is the key to excel in any industry.

Its been really unfair from customer's point of view. It would advisable for you to raise a Paypal dispute.
