How long have you been using the service(s): nearly 1 month its been a interesting service
Detailed review: the basic package is great for newbiz starting out on a barebone VPS, you get root access, and Parallels control
Pros: cheap and easy to use, only for a seedbox if you want to run big sites or video sites, thats impossible
Cons: only had 2 downtimes when my VPS was offline for 6 hours, they said they would add 1 extra week which they didn't add, they want me to first buy another month then they would add that extra week which i said no thanks, it's stated they would refund me for every hour my VPS was offline, that is rubbish and not true, they didnt add that extra week for me so i dont believe they refund me back. the big issue which i can't understand is they said they couldn't add another 1 week hosting to my account, due to how paypal works ? how about that. go figure
Would you recommend this company to your best friend? : NO
I have had my VPS with switchlink for around 3 months now. Not had a single bout of downtime. I'd assume since the first post was made the company have learnt and advanced quite alot. Going by some more recent reviews i've found, they are doing very well in pleasing customers.
I run mumble, websites and a gameserver on my VPS. No issues with either. Ping is nice and low for the gameserver, chat is lag free and high quality, websites open fast and download speed is quick. Support team answered my queries quickly and helped me set pretty much everything up, including a control panel i found on the web.
I have openVZ for my VPS running on centos5 32bit. As before, uptime has been 100%. Control panel is brilliant, includes a basic panel for noobs and an advanced one if you know what your doing. I like looking at this one but don't know much so generally stick to the noob one haha!
Overall i'd 10000% recommend this company. I dont know about the original posters problem but these are a thing of the past it seems.
They offer a 30 day money back guarantee which was why I went originally, so its always worth a try
p.s sorry for digging up old thread but I don't think its really fair to keep a review thats bad when so much has changed.
