Stay Away From Serverbeach

May 28, 2008

About two weeks ago serverbeach null routed one of our servers for over 48 hours with no proof of an attack what so ever. We would randomly see it back online for 5 minutes at a time and the server was perfectly fine. No lag, no attacks, no nothing then boom nullrouted again.

They claimed the traffic the server was receiving was too much for the 10mbit port we were paying for (after we waited 48 hours to receive a useful response) so we were forced to upgrade to a 100mbit port. No big deal, they upgrade us to 100mbit and 10 minutes later the server is online without any issues what so ever. Today we find out the server has been nullrouted once again and we have not had a response from them in hours.

Not to mention when we called support the first time we heard a party in the background and it was impossible to talk due to all of the loud noise and yelling. We were promised an update within 30 minutes, never heard back.

Serverbeach, Which Datacenter

Mar 28, 2008

I've heard people talk about it being important to pick the right datacenter if you go with serverbeach. Other than the two power outages in the VA one, what are the differences? Do they all use pure Peer1 bandwidth?

[30 Days] ServerBeach Review

Aug 11, 2009

I have always wanted to be a customer of ServerBeach since I found out that they hosted YouTube and so on. I have found their prices to be kind of high compared to all the others until they started offering their "Twitter" deals, and that is how a price I could not turn down came into my life.

Well, I ordered a server through Server Beach 7/12/2009 and have been rocking it out at 100% uptime since they set it up for use on 7/14/2009. When I first placed my order I had to send in a photo ID and such to verify it was me ordering the server, which I found to be kind of reassuring knowing that the datacenter took fraud that serious. It might have just been me though!

Server Specs
AMD Opteron 1218
2 GB DDR2 Memory (up to 667MHz)
2 x 500 GB 7200 RPM SATA II , RAID 1
Unlimited (10mbps) bandwidth (AKA 3300ish GIGs?)
Herndon, Virginia

So far, I have had NO network problems! My server is located in their Virgina datacenter outside of Washington DC. Which is a blessing coming from a former FDC Servers user. They have a super fast network, websites load fast.

I have had to contact support a few times, and they were knowledgeable and extremely helpful. One thing I love about ServerBeach support, is that they treat all questions as a true problem, even if it's just a question that has nothing to do with the server being down or anything like that. Support also answers tickets amazingly fast by the way!

I love the fact that I have a set account manager. I love being able to call a single person if I need something outside the realm of support needs.

All in all, these first 30 days have been spectacular, and I look to spending a long time with ServerBeach.

Side Note!

My Previous Providers have included FDC Servers and The Planet.

Serverbeach, User Privileges

Oct 19, 2007

I have a server from ServerBeach Linux Powerline 2600. CentOS5.

It even has webmin on it.

But this is what I'm trying to do, trying to add a user so the user can use apache/php/mysql/cron and cannot look into other directories like /etc

SB is taking sometime, so I thought to post here as well.

I know it's a linux admin thing, but I'd like to get some quick help as well..

ServerBeach, Incredible Response Time

Apr 4, 2008

I've only had a server with them for a week and - being the guru that I am - managed to lock myself completely out of windows by mistake, no safe mode remedy or anything possible. I needed a fresh OS install but on top of that I needed access to my old data. It took them all of 6 minutes to notify me that my request was in the works. In under 2 hours I had a fresh C drive with a new OS and my old drive in there for me to copy data from.

I was fully expecting a slow, condescending response and a bill for the service (I asked to be charged but they refused and said that OS reloads are always free despite having to do more than a simple OS reload for me)... What I got was near immediate response from a polite and fully competent staff that did exactly what I wanted. Thanks ServerBeach!

I'll review their uptime after I've been with them for good chunk of time. I'm at Virginia and I read about two power outages they had before, but having dealt with their staff there I'm confident that these guys have that completely under control now.

Recommend A Dedicated Server For Very High Bandwidth - Serverbeach

Jul 30, 2008

I have a site that uses extreme amounts of bandwidth, I checked some of the popular companies like serverbeach and softlayer. Right now I'm leaning more towards serverbeach because they are cheaper, Are they a good company to go with? Let me know if you have any other recommendations.

I have been at liquidweb for a about a month and I HAVE to say. These guys are the best.

I have no affiliation with them and I feel obligated to post a review because I was jumping from one provider to another, trying to find a good VPS solution, until I found liquidweb.

Oh my god, I have posted more than 30 different tickets at the helpdesk and NONE took more than 10 minutes to be answered. Also, none took more than 25 minutes to be RESOLVED except one, which took about 8 hours to be resolved:

For this ticket, I request help with a third party application (clipshare). The technician said: Sure I can help! Poor guy. We exchanged more than 60 (sixty) emails in 8 hours. He worked together with me for 8 straight ours until the problem was completely solved. I actually felt sorry for the guy. I actually thought: "what if this guy have to go? does he have a family?".

I have never seen something like that. The only way that can be better for me is if I don't have to pay for my VPS. Actually, if they double the price of their VPS, I will gladly pay.

LiquidWeb VPS

Oct 1, 2007

I found that the do not provide good first. I ordered a new VPS1 plan with their promotional offer on WHT. Ordered was setup on time after getting verification call from them. I selected fantastico in order form and now I found there is no fantastico installed. I asked few other query like bind is failing since server setup and there is no reply. My tickets are pending since last 4 hours. There is only Sales people are on web based support. One of them connected me to the technical support through phone but it's been another 30minutes and there is no reply.

I highly suggest not to go for LiquidWeb for VPS. I am checking if they provide moneyback as I need to use this option ultimately.

I currently have a shared hosting plan at Liquidweb, and am considering upgrading to a VPS. After reading countless threads, I narrowed my potential hosts between Liquidweb, and Knownhost. Liquidweb won out mainly due to my extremely happy experience with them, though I do have a couple of questions.

I have been using shared hosting exclusively for years and it has served me well. I am now running a site that is gaining popularity and find that shared hosting is insufficient for my needs. Problem is, I know nothing about having to manage a VPS. I have read horror stories about having ones box hacked or exploited for some sort of zombie spam machine.

That being said, having a “Fully Managed” VPS sounds great. I read through the tutorials, mainly the “HOW TO: Secure and Optimize your VPS” and feel even more overwhelmed due the vast amount of tweaking that needs to be done in order secure a VPS.

While looking over the specs of VPS #1 on the Liquidweb site, they mention that their VPS’s feature “ServerSecure”. My question is:

Is “ServerSecure” secure to the point where I don’t need to manually add the myriad of tweaks listed in the above mentioned tutorial?

This is all new to me. I am interested in learning how to take care of a server, but I don’t want to be exploited in the mean time.

Also, my site is running two installs of Wordpress with a moderate amount of plugins. I run one for production, and one for testing puposes. I also run Mint. All have MySQL databases. While I do not currently have wpcache installed, I do plan to install it after moving to a VPS.

I have tentatively decided on VPS #1. My only worry is the amount of RAM included in the package. I found the “LiquidWeb: 10 Year Anniversary Special” thread in the “VPS Hosting Offers” forum and noticed that the RAM is upgraded from 256MB to 384MB, but I am worried that it may not be enough. I would like to have the specs of a VPS #1 server, but have the RAM (512MB to 768MB) of a VPS #2 server. The thing is, the VPS #1 configuration page does not allow me to upgrade the RAM beyond 384MB.

Will Liquidweb allow me to upgrade just the RAM of a particular server?

I realize that I could contact Liquidweb sales reps and ask, but I thought I would bundle this with my other question here first in the hopes that someone might know.

I just got a second server with them and all was fine until I logged into WHM today and got some message about missing A-Hostnames?

This was never there before. All seemed fine for about 2 weeks.. Things still look OK I think..

I ask for support but the support is really confusing and they dont explain things. My first server runs like a champ but it took them a month to sort out hostname issues with my first server.. They configured wrong....

Now here we go again...

to ensure things are properly configured..

Also, Im running a script on the first server that works fine...

On the new server it just doesnt work.. The script company is saying curl and ssl aren't enabled on the new server? I'm not sure what this means..

LiquidWeb Or 1&1

Jul 21, 2007

i am a current customer of LW but i am thinking about switching to 1&1

any reviews?

View 14 Replies View Related


Sep 2, 2007

I paid for a VPS server for one month on LiquidWeb last week which didn't work from the off. After spending many hours with their support, they wouldn't fix it and made some excuse up. I requested to have my account cancelled and a refund on Day 1 but all week they've been making excuses up and are refusing to cancel my account, let alone give me a refund.

What should I do here? I don't see why I paid them $60 via Paypal for a VPS that didn't even work properly. I want a full refund.

1and1 Vs. Liquidweb And Others

May 24, 2008

I have about 30 websites under my belt right now with I have 1 account but nearly 30 sites linked to that account - yes yes, means it is VERY slow because a) it's on a shared server, and b) there are literally thousands of sites on my server (did a reverse Ip lookup)

I've just recently started a new forum which has taken off, to the point where the database cannot be pulled up half the time because soo many people are on the server. This is NOT good. I'm missing out on revenue that could be gained, and since I'm advertising/marketing this site, it sucks even more!

So my question is - I'm goin to move all of my websites to a dedicated server. I thought about a VPS, but for $30 more monthly I can have a dedicated with a gig of memory, yadda yadda yadda...

Should I use They are $99.99/monthly, or should I use someone else? Who else can compete at that price? I get everything I need with 1and1, including enough hard drive space, enough ram (for now), control panel, etc...

I'm a n00b in the dedicated server world, so help would be great. I plan to purchase a dedicated server within the next few days, and so far 1and1 has been my best bet when it comes down to money.

LiquidWeb Disappointment

May 31, 2008

Well, this is truly a disappointment.

Let me first say that I'm a big believer that (in todays age) buying something should be simple. It shouldnt be complicated or difficult. If I want to give someone money, then I'd hope they'd take it and provide me a service.

Not at liquidweb.

After reading a bunch of different opinions, we finally opt'ed to try out LiquidWeb's VPS service. The price was decent, the services looked right, and the reviews on WHT were really good.

I submit my order - wait for my confirmation call.

I get that call, but it is left on my office phone (the number I used to sign up with). No problem, I call LW back at the number they left and proceeded to complete my order.

The person who answered said they needed to call me back on the number that was submitted with the order. My office is 45 minutes away, and I asked if it were possible to leave me a message or something else so that we could play with the VPS over the weekend. No.

So my only option is to wait until Monday?


Could I cancel the order and resubmit with a phone that I'm sitting next to?


So what's the difference?

Don't know.

Ok - let's cancel the order and I will try another host that wants my money.


Do you need my name?


And that's it. I asked for an email confirmation, and we'll see if I actually get the account cancelled or if this evolves into a nightmare.

It may sound like I'm being hard to deal with. I certainly can appericiate the value of validating an order. However, tell me that, or give me a way of proving an alternate number or verification mechanism (maybe to read the CV2 number on the card?).

First impressions are everything for us.. In a day and age where there are literally hundreds of vendors who can provide the same thing, I'd think these kinds of issues would be a thing of the past.

Say what you want about 1&1, but they have always given us what we needed when we needed it.

Mosso - samething.

Now that we have ruled out Liquidweb, anyone have any suggestions for a good VPS provider? We were also looking at Virpus, but decided against them with the recent talk of all the "migration" troubles.

WiredTree V.s. Liquidweb

Apr 1, 2008

So, I plan to switch to one of those two dedicated server hosts. I am not sure which one is better. I kinda like them both, but have no experience with them. What do you think? offer:

Processor: Intel Q6600 QUAD CORE
Hd1: 120GB 7200RPM SATA / 8MB Cache (+Upgrade to 250GB drive)
Hd2: 120GB 7200RPM SATA / 8MB Cache (+Upgrade to 250GB drive)
RemoteBackup: 50GB Remote Backup (+Offsite Backup)
OS: Linux - CentOS 4
ControlPanel: CPanel / Web Host Manager (+ServerSecure) (+Fantastico/XController)
SetupFee: $350 Setup Fee
Monthly Fee: $249 /mon offer:

CPU E6420 (Dual-Core 2.13Ghz 4MB Cache)
250GB SATA II 7200 RPM 16MB Cache
250GB SATA II 7200 RPM 16MB Cache
100 Mbs Public + 100 Mbs Private
2000 GB Transfer
$199 setup fee
247$ per month
Fully managed
Linux CentOs, MySQL

I am leaning to Wiredtree because they are new and small company (i think) and I think these new companies are quite nice to their customers in fullfiling their needs but that is non objective opinion. Both companies have good reviews out there. So it's simply choice of user experience with them.

So, in your humble opinion which one should become my favorite host for the next few years.

Access To Liquidweb From EU

Oct 3, 2009

Hello everyone, i would like to know if the forum has users from Europe and that they have dedicate server at Liquid Web. I have few dedicate servers at liquidweb and in past 12 months I have big problems with speed with these servers, and with speed to them. Speed download / upload sometimes does not exceed either 512 Kbps and sometimes download or upload from liquidweb server can be only 10 kB/s.

Loading of some pages can take for 1 minute. I opened a ticket for this problem, but the Support feedback told me that this is quite normal for my distance which I consider totally unacceptable. It is acceptable that the ping must be large, but low speed is simply unimaginable.

Medialayer Or Liquidweb

Apr 23, 2009

I work for a medium sized non-profit organization. We are currently looking to upgrading our hosting. These are our requirements:

- 2 gigs of storage

- 15-20 gigs of bandwidth


- SSH access

- As fast and reliable as possible

Our budget is up to $30/month, but I'd like to pay a little less if possible. Most importantly, we need the hosting to be fast and reliable. Our website is built with PHP/MySQL, and right now it takes forever to load anything. It seems that Medialayer and Liquidweb keep coming up as reliable and fast hosts, so I'd like to hear your thoughts as to which you think would fit our organization best.

Liquidweb Vps Solution

Apr 8, 2009

we have a vps hosting package through liquidweb which offers 200gb of bandwidth.

Recently we got a bill with an overage fee of $2527.5 for 3370GB additional bandwidth. I looked at all the cpanel logs and since we had the hosting account we never went over 10gb including the month they said we went over 3370 GB. I put a ticket into liquidweb and they said we launched "Multi-media services" during the same month of the overage, resulting in the overage. We did no such thing, the only thing we did was add content to our website. In the end they want us to pay the bill without offering any log or idea where the bandwidth came from. I'm just wondering if theres anything we can do other then just taking a bill for $2500 of unknowns.
