Mar 21, 2008
We have had a cheap server at Virpus Networks (virpus.com) for 3 months. Everything has been great.

Today at 1030AM CDT, the box suddenly went offline. We asked for a reboot via AIM and Help Desk Ticket and Ken stated he would drive to the facility and reboot it.
As of 210PM CDT, the box was still offline but Ken was on AIM. We asked him about it and he stated he had just received a SPAM complaint and that his carrier, LightEdge, nullrouted the IP as there policy is nullroute and then notify of the complaint.
When asked when Virpus received the SPAM complaint, Ken advised us he had received it earlier in the day but he did not have time to forward it on.
When asked how to go about getting the box put back online, mind you it was the 1st SPAM Complaint and we rectified it in our database within 5 minutes of receiving the ticket at 220 PM, he stated it was upto LightEdge and he has expressed his concerns of this policy but there was no response and he had no ETA for a fix.
Also, as a side note, Virpus Networks advertises ATT, QWest, XO, Cogent and Verizon however the only thing your able to get to unless your directly on the ATT, QWest, XO, Verizon network is Cogent.
Think twice about getting a VPS or Dedicated Server with Virpus.
I cannot wait to hear Kenneth Odem's response to this post as Im sure he'll be here to defend himself and say its all our fault for getting the 1 SPAM Complaint which I admit, getting a SPAM complaint against you is bad however the mannfer of suspending the account and then contactin the customer 4 hours later is absolutely rediculous.
Since all the talk lately about Virpus Networks here on the boards lately has been negative, I figured I would put a positive light on Virpus.

Price = 10/10
The price was one of the main things that drew me into Virpus. For $12.99 a month, I am getting 12 GB Disk Space, 300 GB of Bandwidth, 192MB Guaranteed RAM, 512 MB Burst RAM, and DirectAdmin. I would consider that a steal.
Uptime = 9.5/10
My VPS has rarely been down. If it has been, it is because of either:
a) the recent 1.5 hour downtime for the migration or b) something I did to screw up my own VPS.
Support = 9/10
Whenever I have a question for the Virpus staff, I usually get a response within the hour. However, for the past few weeks, it has taken a bit longer than that, sometimes up to two days. However, I believe that is because of the recent migration.
Overall = 9.8/10
I am pretty happy with the services from Virpus Networks. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who is looking for affordable, reliable VPS hosting.
My server has recently been attacked by members of the following website, using DDoS tools stolen form other script kiddies and rebranded (oh the irony). Having enough, I decided to go on a mission to get these brats shut down:

The site is also filled with links to illegal downloads, porn, etc.
The first thing I did was report them to their webhost. I figured this was the best first step. I opened a ticket and reported what was on the site, and pointed out which parts of their AUP the site was violating. After a few days, I provided them contact information for someone at Rockstar Games, as this site was providing downloads for one of their most recently released titles. I also went ahead and contacted some of the publishers of the software being provided illegaly.
14 days later, the ticket is silently closed with no action taken. Site is still up and still providing illegal downloads of software that people spent a lot of time and money developing.
I know they are a VERY small fish in a large pond, but I had had enough of having my servers crippled (at least know I've learned how to defend against it) and decided I would strike back legally and without stooping to the script-kiddies level.
At this point, I'm convinced Virpus Networks (virpus.com) doesn't give a flying monkey turd about anything other than collecting their pathetic $10/mo.
Was I wrong in assuming they would do anything? Should I have just ignored it and moved on? If not...how do I find out who provides network service to Virpus. I'm sure THEY don't allow this sort of thing.
Maybe I was just being a cry-baby and should've left it alone. I don't know.
But hey...I guess if you want to host a site that breaks pretty much every rule in the book, you know where to go. Looking at their pricing however...yeah I'll not go there on that one.
Anyways...this is a part rant, part notification, part "am I being a whiny jerk" post. Sorry if it breaks any rules.
Thanks for listening. I'd give you that portion of your life back if I could but I've decided to keep it for myself.
Anyone have an IM contact for Virpus Networks?

So far I have not experienced any outages and I am going to have to give them a 10 on that as I have seen many threads in the outages about them but it appears they solved that issue and I was never effected by any of those.
I will give the support a 8 as sometimes on off times it could take up to about 30 minutes for the first response which is great but then after that the responses tend to be around 2 hours or so. Overall though the support is great!
I signed up with there plan that was cPanel included and had double bandwidth and ram. I was thinking it was too good to be true and that the VPS was not going to be quality, but I am glad I was wrong!
The performance of the server is overall great so far. I have had no issues as far as the server being anything but fast. I will have to commend them on having great hardware and not overselling there services like a lot of the VPS providers these days.
I would highly recommend them as they have been a great provider overall and I hope that they keep up the good work in the future.
Domain has been reported for verification.
I ordered a 256MB RAM VPS with cPanel on the 24th of May.

I got the VPS up and running to next day.
I logged in to the VPS WHM, noticing the server load was at 3.xx and 4.xx
I was shocked, as this VPS was brand new, so I contacted Ken, NO REPLY.
I also asked him about upgrading my RAM, NO REPLY.
It has now been 3 days, I requested a refund before I got past the 14 Day money back promise. They didnt reply, so I opened a PayPal dispute, still no response.
Im hoping Ken will see this thread at act upon my wishes and grant me a refund.
As all I can see is him trying to ignore me untill the 14 day promise is gone. WHAT A CON!
Get back to me Ken.

Its my great Privilege to give them a excellent rating.
I ordered vps almost 2 and half months back after we had a poor run at WOC (not even for a month at them).
We had recd. so far fabulous support from their crew. The usual ticket reply time is awesome for an semi-managed vps.
Any reply with in 30mins and if provided proper information required as well they would do give the update and time note.
We didn't have any down time on our vps so far. The free back up facility for an semi-managed vps is really awesome. I was searching for a similar feature with lots of hosts but was unlucky. Just then came virpus to solve my every need.
Its just for a namesake they are semi-managed, I get support as if I get a complete managed support.
Till now no ticket on mine has been either ignored or nor delayed in response.
The speed is great and better than our previous hosts
My final word is Virpus Rocks - www.virpus.com
As far as my experience in concerned I will look forward to this company for a very long relationship with them and try to get my friends tied up at this excellent host.
Its been really my pleasure to give this review on virpus. Once again thanks Virpus team for making my life so easy and simple online.
This review is completely based on our experience and not any hand written material I give them 10/10 from my heart.
I've been very happy with Virpus since I joined. There was 1 issue that has plagued me since the beginning and that was that I was not receiving e-mails on my ISP e-mail, my main e-mail. Not to big of an issue except that I didn't get any news updates or know when my tickets were replied to, or even when I was past due on my bill. 3 tickets later and their solution was for me to use another e-mail address, which was kind of a pain for me since each of my e-mail addresses has a specific reason which only specific e-mail get sent there for organizational reasons.

First off I have to say the VPS I was using was top notch. It easily outperformed my LiquidWeb VPSs and quickly became my primary VPS instead of my backup like was intended. I took advantage of one of their specials a while back which was a 512MB RAM cPanel VPS for $19.50/month which is a steal since the cPanel license alone is $15/month!
So now to why this is probably my final review of this company. Communication is lacking greatly. It was good at first, but now it's non-existant.
Over the weekend all my sites went down and I had no idea why... because I never got the e-mail saying they were moving data centers (if it weren't for a small thread on WHT I would never have known). I also did not receive any updates on extending their ETA so yet again I had nothing to tell my clients. The only good thing was that I run a free hosting company (Host2x.com for reference) and I offer no uptime guarantee since it's a non-paid service.
Ok, so the sites are back online and everything is working nicely... well I recently hit the 70% mark on my disk space usage so time to start looking for an upgrade. I created a ticket on April 23rd asking if they would allow me to upgrade my plan to their biggest VPS plan and to my surprise I never got a reply. I would think that a billing ticket asking to upgrade to a plan that costs more without the transfer of the discount I'm receiving would be a welcome ticket for them to reply to, but I was incorrect in thinking this. So I ended up purchasing a dedicated server last night because I cannot wait to see if they will assist me with upgrading my account or not.
I have been with virpus for the past 7 months

I have posted an review earlier as well for 2 month : 2 month review
Let me summarize my experience so far,
Technical Support - 10/10 Really fab. even though I was on semi-managed plan, they never made me feel I was on a semi it always felt as if I was under complete management, they did every task I had asked them to do, which I didn't get on any other semi-managed host earlier.
I have no sort of complaints about their technical team, they tried to solve some problems which were due to the billing dept.
The minimum response for a ticket generally around 10-15mins and the completion with in an hr.
Billing Dept - This is some dept. that has kept me in wonder-land. Some times the replies were so pleasing and most other times the tickets are ignored. From, almost 2nd r 3rd month, the billing dept. tickets don't get regularly replied and used to bump the tickets in order to get a response to the query. Which I got some how, in a apologizing manner (no complaints for that :p)
Now, for the past 1 month we have been having some serious problems.
First, I had recd. some black-listed ip's when we joined virpus, we failed to check them (mistake on our end agreed 100%), which probably even they might not have been aware of.. As, we had a minor mis-understanding with godaddy during domain registration, my friend registered the domain using one of our partner address who resides in Singapore, where as the registration was done from India. Godaddy, assumed this was a spam registration and refunded the amount. So, we had to register the domain through another partner who resided in India. Godaddy was cool after we gave them the complete details, where they wanted some ID proof, and we provided them.
Our ip was on the black-list, we thought since our domain was spam-listed for a day, (until godaddy took it off) it made the hosts to assume the domain was black-listed, so we had manually submitted forms and proofs to most of the anti-spam agencies and mail providers, where they took the ban off the ip with in 15-20 days after we joined virpus.
Our domain was no longer under black-list, but ip was still under black-listed in some sites, such as rediff, it took more than 2 months to set the things straight at rediff, where we did some config added from the tech.dept. such as setting up spf record, and did a few tweaks here and there.
Even after making all these efforts, our ip was still under black-list of some ISP's. Our main domain (the domain which was under bl list earlier) loads well for every user, but our child domains where we have blogs and other activities do not load for lots of users. The ping results in the internet gives 100% but on their particular systems it gives no ping. Some times, the site loads wierdly such as,[url] might load but [url]might not load, and vice-versa, some times local ping fails but site loads, its all wierd and we found the reason to the problem to be ip after some minor confirmation from our end. We were losing our revenue of more than 60% just because of the failure of loading on the site, the tech. dept used to ask the ips which are facing prob to check if they are blocked, but its not possible to give ips of users who visit as guests and others, we have noted reports on other sites that our site wasn't loading for them. We still were able to give few ips for check and found them not-blocked on the ip. The sites are able to be viewed for all from proxy sites such as stage6.info but we can't ask each viewer to go to proxy site to view if they are unable to load, it will become ridiculous and we might lose our entire traffic some day.
We had shifted our domains temporarily to other vps where we noted none of the users had a single complaint, we were there for more than a week, which ensured the problem was not the domains but the ips, again after returning to the virpus hosts, we had created 3 tickets to sales/billing dept. to issue fresh ip's, got 0 reply and mailed to mr.Ken using : firstname.lastname@example.org got no reply after 48hrs.
We have to agreee, Earlier,mr.Ken was so helpful he helped us when we didn't have any funds to issue, since we had an dispute with an item where our payment was delayed by paypal. So, we had paid them almost 10 days later than the due date where mr.Ken was so helpful and saw to it our VPS could stay online despite the payments not been released.
In thanks, we had directly mailed our check we got from an ad-agency, which again made around 5-10 days in the payment, which made our balance stand in the positive note, we have our balance in the account for the past 3 months so that there are no dues left.
But, in the past 1 -2 months the replies have been disappointing.
We planned to leave virpus and join other host, where we burnt our hands, we looked for other reputed VPS and had a few in mind after our staff suggested few good organizations(don't prefer to name them here as it would be mis-leading).
Since, virpus wasn't ready to refund the amount in the credits we decided to continue with virpus atleast as a sideby host. Later, some how our members suggested we used virpus as a main host, so we wanted fresh ip's to get rid of the damn problem we are having but we have recd. no response for the past 1 week.
Now, lately after the maintenance our VPS was down for approx. 26-27hrs on april 25th Saturday, where our traffic is usually on the weekends. We lost the compelete traffic and revenue. When we asked if it come under credits, we got response as : This was the result of scheduled maintenance we cannot, it would not qualify under our SLA. (just giving the main result statment off the entire reply recd. from sales). Its some thing we would like to regret but for sure this isn't some issue, which could make us think to get to a new host.
The reply from the sales dept. has made our staff making funny betting, as one would win if we get a reply and other would if its not replied with in 48hrs, lately the first one is winning () due to lack of communication.
This might be our last month. Our next due date major amount would be taken from the credits, so a very little amount would exist in the account. We will stay with them until our amount with them is spent.
We had enjoyed really good with the tech. dept but the sales dept has been really poor in the recent past. I am forced to say this as even after mailing we haven't got response where, mr.Ken stated if our tickets were lost or some thing, mail to him but either didn't work so far.
Once, earlier when we requested for change of ips we were said some $7 or some thing would be charged for the swap, when we made other enquiries about it we didn't get a response till date
My tickets which lay un-responded:
509467 and 385781 are double-post of the ticket, but got reply for none of the above tickets. Was expecting a reply for 1 atleast.
I was ready to pay excess charge for the new ips as there some mistake from my end in failure to check the ips before getting them but I wanted some concession as the major mistake was from their end while dispatching ips. I am not refusing to pay but I wanted the concession, got no reply and the above tickets are a proof of them.
Our staff online time and their live chat time don't tally, so we can't make any contact to them on live as well.
I am not sure if this is mis-understanding or what, but it has been a mixed experience for me. For sure, their sales crew have to be increased that's some suggestion I would strongly do.
I can recommend this host to any one for the tech. support they provide but can't guarantee them for the sales dept. replies based on my past/recent experiences.
Totally my site down for around ~30hrs including all the maintanence and other reasons, it could be a bit less but I am rounding it off, for sure its more than 28hrs
My over all rating: 7.5/10
Tech. Dept - 10/10
Sales/Billing Dept - 5/10
my site submitted for review via report feature
I tried to give all my experience on virpus and I am not against any one for joining virpus nor have any fights with virpus team.
May be if we get response from sales we might still consider continuing with virpus but that stands low at the moment.
I found my vps in virpus is down

even their main site virpus.com is down either
I ordered from them a little over a week ago the $10 package as a test to see if they would set it up and it seemed to run ok things that crashed i assume did so because of low ram (gameserver/ventserver)and from day 1 after realizing it didnt have enough ram i began using it as a free shell host for people to stay connected to irc (i had read the aup and tos before signing up and irc was not mentioned as against rules ANYWHERE) and they didnt allow making swap files (which is fine i guess) so I ordered another one only this time the supreme package and kept the other one as an irc host and then tried running the gameserver off the new one with 3gb of ram...it still didnt run properly so i figured ok ill just usethis one to run irc and other stuff as well..after 10 days the server suddenly drops ALL irc connections and i made a ticket and asked if I accidently firewalled it myself or if something they did affected it heres the response i got from my tickets

cant connect to hpyervm getting a mysql cannot connect error (copied and pasted its:"Could not connect to Mysql server... ") and all of the services using irc on the server dropped this morning for no apparent reason was it something someone did on the server or did you guys change something cause now it just times out any irc connection before connecting but the servers ping and respond to other stuff fine.
Two Minutes later:
We have restored the SQL server on our master node. Additionally due to some abuse issues, we have banned IRC ports. For the life of our company we have disallowed and banned IRC from being hosted, which is stated in our AUP, so you should not be hosting IRC of any type on our network in any case.
Me (a few were in between that and this but they were not related to waht i am posting really):
Alright i submitted it and i reread the aup and even did a search ... irc is not mentioned ONCE in there let alone as not allowed....
they never responded to that but they did respond
We will get this processed within todays business day.
at the end which i am assuming was refering to my cancellation and request of money back under the 14 day garantuee. It is more than 24 hours later and they still have not showed where the aup says irc is not allowed and i have not recieved money back.
Result and conclusion: It is a scam company there 24/7 support chat is NEVER online even during the business hours they state and the company doesnt even read its own tos/aup.
for those who want to read the aup here it is
No Virpus Networks servers or networks may be used for:
- Email spamming
- Warez, Hackz or Serialz sites.
- Illegal content or activities
- Any other type of high packet load or disruptive network traffic
- Ask before you attempt something questionable, it will save us all a lot of trouble.

With so many downtime issues in the last 3 days and so much downtime, lack committment and quality , I requested a refund. ITs been 3 days since the request (Saturday-Sunday-Monday) all 3 days over now and no reply EXCEPT it has been forwarded to someone or will update you shortly (never happened!).

I also have an RDNS ticket that wasnt' even resolved since 24/25th of May ...thats almost 2 weeks. I get the same was done (wasnt done), will update you (never got updated)...thing.
After the issues in network and attacks, they never even sent out the latest apology email to the clients (the last downtime or network issue). And all their outsourced techs say is "am looking in your issue and will update you"....
I tried calling the helplines, no one picks up. Live Chat isnt live chat since no one is online (except at a random time it seems). Tech support doesnt' exist ..it's just someone saying will update you shortly and then they probably email the DC (who clearly dont care about Virpus by doing nothing). SO its a fault of Virpus and the DC. Thats why their email (last one) talked about moving off the Datacenter.
Now I have lost 6 clients and lost over 200$ , which sadly Virpus being an LLC (Limited Liable Company) I can't really sue. Their 100% uptime or SLA is nothing but an insult to everyone. Support "was" great when you signup...It's like you get everything you want UNTIL after 2 weeks, when you're forgotten (or maybe in the time zone I live in support doesnt work at all or the un-qualified outsourced support kick in).
Anyhow, both ways I have begun moving most of my sites off this amazingly terrible vps host (I had tested them around 4 months back with similar results except for the network issues). Also I tried formating and reloading the VPS using Virtuozzo with them..It doesn't work. Basically Virpus is offering great deals but more about getting lots of clients bundled onto a single server. Theyve added tons of ram to the single server and set everyone on it, without really scanning into clients and realising that 1 attack means downtime for all the clients on the vps - server. It would be better to split them around on multiple host servers to decrease the attack.
Anyhow I am extremely upset with the support I got. They havent replied to my support tickets EXCEPT the usual will update which never got updated and gets forgotten.
Overall based on pricing I'd give them a 3/5
Based on Support 4/5 (for the first 10 days), after that (0/5)
Quality of Company (0.2/5)
Its been a very bad loss for me and being in India, I dont think I would be able to do much about it (legally). They totally messed up with their datacenter (or vice versa) and they've left the upset clients without response and the happy clients...sleep through most of the issues or have been very lucky.
I really didnt' want to post here. But 3 days without a refund reply and 2 weeks with an RDNS no real update/ or apology on the lack of support there...is a huge turn off and has made me really frustrated. I hope Virpus realises their mistakes and begin spending more money on "Knowledgable Support/Staff" and also get ethical and moral before its too late. It's never too late to change, until change isn't even an option. I hope that Virpus will improve and change to the better...
I just got my new server they transferred me to up and running last night. I woke up this morning and it's down. I submitted a ticket about an hour ago and have not had a response. I also can't get to their own web site. Anyone else who uses virpus having problems this morning?

I've been with Virpus for roughly 4-5 months and everything was going well until one day, randomly, when I tried to use the HyperVM backup option I got an error saying "no_premission_to_backup ". I contact support about it and they said they were looking into the issue. I sent in the ticket on 8/9/08. As of today, the issue is still not fixed! All the replies I get are literally "We are working on this issue. We shall update you soon." I am growing very impatient on this issue and I'm wondering if it really does take that long to fix a seemingly simple problem. If anyone knows how to fix this, it would be greatly appreciated.

Also, shortly after, every time I tried to stop, start, or restart my VPS I got this error: "vzctl_doesnt_work_most_likely_vz_service_is_not_running". And guess what the response I get is? Yup, it's "We are working on this issue. We shall update you soon." It's been a few days since then, and I don't see any end to this. I am very frustrated with Virpus at the moment, as my VPS has been down for a couple of days due to this. Is this a very hard issue to fix? Anyone know how to fix it?
Also, the recent problems with the nodes (including mine) really worry me too. Overall I'm really thinking of jumping boat on this one and looking for a new VPS provider. They were good at first, but the constant, same, robotic response that doesn't get these problems resolved are really burning me out.
Stay away from this provider! Last months I am down straight for 7 days but they promise to improve they service and I give them a chance, now I am down for 3 days straight with no response from them, here the proof: ....

After being extremely dissatisfied with Virpus VPS hosting I decided to cancel my account with them 2 days ago. I opened a billing ticket requesting cancellation of my account and got a reply asking why. I responded and I have not heard back from them since.

I've tried calling during the past 2 days but I only get a voicemail. Yes, that's right... voicemail everytime I call for the past 2 days. I've had no choice but to contact my credit card company and inform them that I no longer authorize Virpus to place any charges to my account.
Has anyone else tried to cancel an account with Virpus and have the same thing happen?
If yes, what did you have to do to get the cancellation to go through?

There are other post with the same problem in the past.
I hope that Virpus stop trying to charge my credit card for a service I cancelled in advance.

806581 - Ticket id for reference
My friend wanted to move from virpus as he was having some issues, he mentioned all his reasons in the ticket and asked for the refund amount which was already existent in the virpus account, which he had paid them much earlier.
There was no reply to his ticket even after 2 days ..
So, he asked me to send an pm to Ken, haven't got reply from Ken either.
Recently, the sales dpt, replies haven't been up to the mark at virpus , their tech support still sounds good though,
Never expected this longer delay virpus - Ken, its almost 4 days since the ticket has been created and submitted to you,
sorry for creating a ticket, but u have left no other choice, as I neither got reply from mr.Ken in the past 2 days nor there was a reply to the support ticket.

I contacted them on the 9th to get the server up and running so i can run the dolphin social network software, a few quick replied tickets were sent back and forth the final was
'We are checking the required dependencies for dolphin and will update you once this has been completed. Please note that this procedure would require apache recompilation and therefore possible down time. Please let us know if we can proceed regarding this.'
which i replied that it is fine to proceed.
12 hours passes, i reply again to confirm that they are proceeding, no reply. another 12 hours, i open another ticket to see if i can expedite this. i then get a message which says
We apologize for the delay in getting back with you. This ticket has automatically been escalated to an administrator to speed this ticket up.
We appreciate your patience.

Does anyone have experience with them?
What about virpus?
I recently read around here and people had their VPS setup within 5 minutes in some cases. I've ordered a VPS from VirPus and I'm not sure how long it usually takes to setup. I'm nearing the 24 hour mark so I'm not sure. How long on average is an acceptable waiting time? or how long would you say it should take?

14 days moneyback is not true. virpus don't refund at all.
servers are overloaded. very slowly and if you ask for moneyback he. just don't answer you
i have buy signature vps with them and on 10 days.
servers have 1 downtime every day. and sometime (2 days) you cannot log into servers or view page because is overloaded.
when your servers back online. its take aproximatly 30 seconde before " website or panel " load.
just think before purshase. virpus network scam her client and don't respect own moneyback policy.

I signed up with Virpus over a year ago when I found a nice deal here on WHT. After having months of no problems, and decent support I would eventually tack on two more VPS' to my account, bringing the total to three through Virpus.

However, starting in July I started to have uptime issues with them. Their nodes were constantly on the fritz and it was starting to feel like a weekend experience of their node having issues. It finally got to the point at the beginning of September that I no longer wanted to deal with the ******** of their node problems, so I made the decision to transfer over accounts to Infinitie, where I have another VPS with.
Each ticket I submitted in regards to any of my three VPS being down would have a slow response and either a "It's up now" type of comment. :
7/22 - VPS 'are down, can't access anything. Ticket sent in, node problem.
7/29 - VPS' are down, again, node problems
8/11 - VPS' are down, never had the issue resovled within ticket. Had to find out from a newsletter that it was a node issue again
9/07 - VPS' are down again, took 12 hours for a reply (and 12 hours of downtime on three of my VPS). Node problem ... surprise surprise.
9/09 - VPS' are down again, only took an hour for a reply this time, and was told that the node was not working properly this time..
9/12 - VPS' are down again, took 11 hours for a reply. Node problems.
As you can see it got really frustrating in September. Not one mention of credit throughout the node problems I had to endure, although they did send out a newsletter offering a $5 credit to people who submitted some feedback to them. Amazing how that will get credit, but their crap *** nodes constantly having problems and me having well over days of downtime doesn't.
So I bit the bullet and submmited a cancellation request for my VPS that was due first (the other two were about a week after) and I ended up getting a nice little kiss-*** ticket opened up on the cancellations behalf offering me a credit for the issues pending I copied the ticket ID numbers back. This ticket was sent to me on 9/21.
Given that I've been a customer with them for over a year, I decided to give them the benefit of the doubt and allow them to offer me up a credit and see how it went for another month. Granted, at that point one of the servers was already transferred and running at Infinitie thanks to John giving me a stellar deal after explaining my problems to him.
It's now 9/26 and the ticket that Ken opened up in regards to my cancellation has never even been replied to. I've updated it a few times (so they'd get some notification and see the bright *** orange "customer-reply" in whmcs) but to no avail. So far I've had two payments already go through (silly me forgot two were on subscriptions) and one of them being for a service I canceled prior to the due date. Obviously it being a subscription I can't dispute it, but I did ask in my ticket for a refund for the two invoices that went through and hopefully credit put in place of it. I've since canceled both of the Paypal subscriptions so I don't forget about it again next month.
I'm just posting it here because I know Ken occasionally hits up WHT, and I've already exhausted my resources with replying to tickets. Sometimes publicly stating an issue seems to get a better response from a company.
Just really disappointed with how Virpus has turned out after the year of being with them. Their support had typically been stellar when I first came to them in September of last year, and throughout my stay here.
ETA: Not even 5 minutes later after I get the entirety of this written up, I received a reply to my ticket stating that a refund could be not be issued for the two invoices that went through (one of them being a payment that was made AFTER I canceled the VPS...) But it's still annoying that it took five days for a two-liner reply.
I'm still way too hesitant to remain with Virpus at this point, even with a mention of credit for all my services that have been affected
I have purchased Virpus SupermeVPS with memory offer in WHT. But they are misleading customers. They are showing off at [url] as follows:

With HyperVM, a user with administrative access to a VE can easily perform many critical management tasks:
Back up and restore the VE from the backup including all system and user files
But they don't offer this feature
I want to my HyperVM, there are no tabs, menus or buttons related with "backup". So I sent message to support...
Support: Sorry, backup option is available only to admin and I thought you have admin access to HyperVM.
Backup option wont be available for users other than admin
Due to continuing problems with my current provider, I have signed up for a managed DirectAdmin VPS with Virpus.

I'll post reviews as time passes but I just wanted to post that I ordered at 3:55pm and I was setup just after 5pm. That is awesome setup time. I've now requested initial hardening and optimization, since I have a managed package. I don't expect it to be as fast (it is Sunday after all), but the setup time was awesome. I don't even know how they got a DA licence that fast, I thought that was a real bottleneck sometimes.
My vps has been down all weekend. The stellar support team of Bob, Clide, and Ann has been of no help. They tell me to wait as we look at your problem, the tell me my problem has been escalated, to the higher level of support (who also seem to be Bob, Clide, and Ann), who have told me everything is fixed now (it isn't) and now immediately close any tickets I start, leaving no response.

Is this the normal experience with virpus? Do I need to change hosts?
I`ve been using virpus for 6 months and support was always terrible but uptime was good.

I`ve never been able to login to hypervm which i`ve supposed to login, when i open a ticket regarding this they always forward the ticket to so called management department which in fact do nothing at all.
If you`re looking a vps provider with no support but good uptime then choose virpus but if you`re looking for little bit support then stay away from them.
Virpus = Ticket 11 days old, started working on issue 6 days ago, no word for 4 days!

Thats Virpuss customer service and its plain silly.
Well it's been one month since I purchased my dedicated server from Limestone Networks, and i'd like to post my experiences with them, so here it goes.

About a month ago I stumbled upon Limestone networks, read a few reviews, and thought i'd go for it. The the next thing I did was start a live chat, a friendly chap by the name of Felipe responds. I have a nice long chat with Felipe, what a delight it was! Not only did he answer all of my questions promptly, but he certainly knew what he was talking about. Unlike my previous experiences with other companies.
After a nice long chat with Felipe, I was ready to get my server. So I went straight ahead and ordered.
Dual CPU Quad Core XEON 5504 (2.0ghz)
8GB DDR2 ECC registered RAM
2x500GB HDD in RAID1 (WD RE3, AWESOME HDD'S!)
100mbps up/down speeds
All up cost me around $280 + ~$30 setup fee
Within about 2 hours I receive an email stating that there were some minor problems during setup because of the RAID configuration, and they will fix it as soon as possible. I must admit, it got me slightly worried, but a few minutes later, I receive another email saying that it's all setup and done! Boy was I excited!
I Instantly SSH'd into my server to check on things, all good. I install the XEN kernel and reboot to make sure it's working all fine, boots without any errors. So far so good.
A few days later I realised I was running out of IP Addresses, so I open a support ticket to ask for more, the invoice is created, I pay it then respond saying that I have done so. 6 minutes later they respond saying that it is being set up, and another 3 minutes later they respond with the IP addresses, sweet.
Later on I opened another support ticket asking a question referring to upgrades. Out of pure boredom I clicked the send receive button on my email, and sure enough, I already had a response! all within about 2 minutes after sending it.
Limestone's service has been great, I love their support and prompt response to tickets! One minor problem is that their accounting department isn't available during all hours, no biggie though. Their technical support department is open 24/7.
One great bonus with Limestone is that they keep you informed every step of the way, rather than leaving it to the last minute to say "sorry about the wait".
When i'm ready for my next server, i'll definitely be going for Limestone.
