What Happened To Worldstream

Nov 1, 2009

I've been having a server from for few months now, during the first months everything was good.

Now, during the last two months my server has been offline every week for hours. I Asked them to give me a new server because there are clearly some hardware problems. They didn't. They instead installed my debian os again. 4 days after the new installation, the server is offline again. I asked them to replace the server again, no success. They instead replied "Have you checked your error logs?".

It's a bit difficult to check the error logs if the server is offline.

A while ago, I was on the lookout to rent a dedicated server and I stumbled upon Worldstream.

I looked through their servers and I did not find anything that matched my specifications and budget. I sent them an email with my specifications and within three hours I got a quote that matched my budget. +1 for Worldstream to reply very fast.Setup: I ordered the server in the morning (IST 10 AM) and I specifically asked them to install a custom grsec kernel for me.

When I checked my mail again at IST 7 PM, the same day - there was a mail to say that the server had been setup along with the login details. I logged in and saw that my custom grsec kernel was also installed and running. The grsec kernel install came FREE.

Wonderful.I have been using the server for three months now.Stability and speed: The server has been very stable and there was no unplanned down time. The speed is good too.Communication: Communication with Worldstream, esp with Lennert, the account manager has been excellent so far. There was only one planned maintenance when their network supplier had to do some maintenance but that was done quickly. However, my server was down for a couple of hours more, because some one forgot to add my server's IP to the new VLAN. A call to Lennert solved that and he apologized and assured me that will not happen again.

After this, there has not been any downtime or problem.Flexibility: Worldstream is very flexible when it comes to your specifications. Unlike many other providers, they provide servers with your custom hardware specifications. No fuss about it.

My server came with 4 GB RAM. Yesterday, I asked them whether they can reduce the RAM to 2 GB and accordingly modify billing. Immediately the RAM was reduced and the billing was modified.

Then I asked them whether they could upgrade me to a gigabit port and accordingly bill me.

No problem they said and they completed it in about an hour. In an hour, the server was moved to a gigabit port and the billing was adjusted. Cool.

Billing has been very clean so far and I have NO problems.

These three months have been very smooth, communication has been good and the server works very well by our Lord's Grace.

Worldstream is a very straightforward, flexible and no-nonsense provider. I am sure that I will continue to host there for a long time to come.

Here is the link to a speed test from my server:[url]

Please test and let me know the speed you are getting and your location.
The domains I host on this server are:[url]

Paypal Dispute With Worldstream For Server Not As Described

Jan 14, 2009

Ok here is the scenario.

Day 1 - Ordered server, agreed price and spec and installation date. Quoted 3 days setup time.

Day 3 - I was told need an extra day to setup this I said is fine.

Day 4 - server is setup but is missing 2 drives and only has half the ram I ordered. I email them to tell them this.

Day 6 - They finally respond to my email and tell me they have fixed the missing drives and ram they also offer me 10 days free as compensation. The problem is now the server is completely down, doesnt even respond to ping.

Day 7 - I email them to tell them server down and I now want a refund, I offer to accept a partial refund to compensate them for manual work involved in setting up server. (412 euros paid 350 euros refund), this offer made in goodwill so resolve quickly. 2nd proposal sent later for only 300 euro refund.

Day 9 (today) - No reply whatsoever and server still offline I raise a paypal dispute and within 1 hour I get a email telling me they agree to my 2nd proposal (only 300 euro refund) however they want me to cancel paypal dispute first.

I have read the paypal dispute policy and I see if I were to cancel the dispute and they then not refund me I have nothing since I cannot reopen the dispute, whilst if he were to refund me and I was to try and scam him he would have a strong case as paypal have the refund logged so he has far less to worry about. So I am not cancelling the dispute and even offered to set it to 300 euros but he says if I dont cancel the dispute I get no refund.

Just want to know peoples thoughts on this, consider I never have had the server I ordered working, its currently completely down and he was ignoring me until I raised the dispute which doesnt put his trustworthyness very high.

The provider is

how the inside of a DC is but I was looking at NetDepot's.

I thought that they used rackmounts in datacenters?

Like these:[url]

These appear to me as desktops?


Am I mistaken?

Which one of those datacenters would you choose your site to be hosted at?

I'm leaning towards softlayer, and then FDCServers (especially with the upgragde on august 1).

Joe's Datacenter Colocation

Aug 7, 2009

I'm looking around for a nice, cheap colo place for a Dell PE 2650 I just purchased...


* At least burstable to 10Mbit... dedi 10 is nice.. 100 is nicer..

* About 1000GB xfer should be good to start, I guess I can work with less

* Cheap IPs with no problems obtaining more

* Cheap remote hands since there's really not much in the RI/MA area. I will be going to school in upstate NY so I guess something around there would be cool too. I'm willing to ship anywhere though.

* Discounted/included DirectAdmin would be really nice...

* Not going to be selling IRCd stuff unless it's allowed and nice firewalls. I will probably only use it for a personal IRCd and irssi session.


* Joe's Datacenter [url]

This company seems too good to be true... they offer great services for great prices and have many good features. I also spoke to an admin who said he will be able to include a DirectAdmin license for free. They include 5 IPs right off the bat. I got about a reply in an hour at like midnight from Joe (or just another Joe) himself.. and I'm not even a customer! They do free reboots. $50 to colo our 2U with 1500GB and 100Mbit. It's 25 extra for unmetered w/10Mbit but I'm sure the admin would be willing to just offer more b/w staying at 100Mbit instead of moving to a 10Mbit port.

* FDC Servers

Great reputation.. Pretty good prices for what I would imagine to be quality service. Not much more I can say about them.. Did not ask them about DirectAdmin.


I think I'm mainly just looking for any input on Joe's Datacenter because I really think I want to start my company there. If anyone has any better offers I'm open to anything.. but DirectAdmin would be really nice... just remember that.

I'm also looking for a solution to HyperVM... LxLabs (to-be LxCenter I guess?) is now releasing it for free.. I'm not sure if it's patched yet or not though. I think I might just start with HyperVM for now since noone is going to target us.. seriously.. we are two kids with like 2 clients right now. We can always migrate later if HyperVM never takes off again.

Starting A Datacenter

Oct 10, 2009

What if i got a really good connection to this house i have in Sweden and bought some servers there, is it a good idea and would it sell? How hard is it to get a good connection, the house is in a fairly populated area of Sweden and i have partners who could help run it and do support 24 hours.

But its just a thought and we would start small. What do you guys think?

Datacenter From My House

Aug 4, 2009

I just got a phone call yesterday because my house I just moved into came with a small peice of land about 3 miles away * no clue why* And a company wanted to rent it out for colocation. Is this a scam or should I do it? They said it would only hold 60 servers. The building on the land they would be renting already has backup generators emergency lights etc just no internet leading to it.

I want to get a server in Toronto and am looking for some datacenter recommendations for the area. I seen a thread from last May but would like some more current info.

My requirements are pretty basic 100Mbit would be better then not, remote reboot, 24/7 access.

Creating A Datacenter

May 4, 2008

I have a old pentium 2 lying around. I was actually wondering if I install a smll linux distro such as DSL linux, is there a way to make it into a fileserver only?

3 comptuers will connect to it.

My main computer and server will use the same internet (ive got a 5MBS line but right now I am just doing an expirment so I dont care if its slow.)

theres a laptop which connects wirelessly using my neighbours (i dont have wireless) so thats a whole different IP and differnt ISP.

and my dads computer which is about 3 KM away.

So I want to do it, store like a couple of word documents

Picking A Datacenter

Apr 23, 2008

we're in the process of revamping our website and was curious what you, the customers, look for when going to a datacenter's website. Do you like seeing customer comments? Upfront pricing? Facilities' amenities? Which providers' websites do you think are good examples of what a good website should look like?

I read a lot of positive comments about, his service, his professional and fast support, etc. but I was unable to find informations and (better) some pictures of their datacenter.

Their website come from web 0.1 (alpha) era and there are not information about this. So, if someone has more informations, I kindly ask:

Do you know some more details about datacenter structure, power redundancy, ups and, moreover, diesel generators?

Do you have some picture of this datacenter?

How To Build Your Own Datacenter

Oct 15, 2008

I am making some business plans and having an independent datacenter is one of them. Certainly it isn't easy as leasing a space, and buy some stuff. Some of the things I have to watch out for are network activity, getting bandwidth support, power supply, get an engineering company to design the facility and a lot of stuff.

Are there any companies who handles all that? What would be the specific steps to accomplish my agenda?

VPS In Gigenet Datacenter

Dec 4, 2008

Does anyone know of a reseller (as gigenet doesn't sell them directly AFAIK) of VPSs at the gigenet datacenter?

I need a new VPS for a new project and I'm looking at one located in the midwest and Chicago seems a perfect location. My project isn't big enough to require a dedi, but I was hoping to find a vps company who has nodes at gigenet.

DataCenter Move

Mar 28, 2008

We are going to be moving our 10 Servers and various other equipment to a new facility here in Chicago. I have a few question I wanted to ask to backup my current thinking.

We are primarily a web host so all of out users either have their DNS set to our DNS server or they have a dedicated IP and an A record pointed to it. Currently we run a private NAT and have private IP's on the internal servers. The firewall handles the NAT'ing between the public and private IP's.

The primary question I have is if we change the IP address at our registrar for our DNS will the change still be subject to the 24-48 hours of propagation? Since we are not changing the NS records and only changing the IP's I would have to assume that his changeover should be fairly quick.

Two, im looking for the best way to setup our new cab are they any network admin photo gallery's?

Datacenter Facilities

Feb 25, 2007

1)I have searched the net for power calculators but i haven't found any that did everything i needed. I am trying to figure out what size generator i need. I will obviously be speaking with a electrician, but I am just trying to get a idea. I need to figure out how many amps at 120V a certain size generator will put out. Starting at XKW/480V/3-Phase, how do I convert that down to XAMP/120V/Single-Phase. And what is the typical loss by stepping the power down with transformers and running through a large UPS.

2)I am looking at not putting raised floor in, what are the current methods being used to run AC power overhead. My biggest concern is interference with my Cat5E cables that would also run over head.

DataCenter In San Diego

May 5, 2007

The one I found to be best was an 3Level reseller, Iland located in San Diego, but I find their prices to be a little expensive. We got quoted a 2U @ .5MPBS for $200 a month. We've actually decided on a 1U server, but for a 2U, we still found that to be expensive. If we cant find something here in SD, which is Local for 3 of the 4 business owners, it might be put in Amsterdam with our Developer, this way at least 1 of us can have easy access to it. In Amsterdam, their best colo will go for around $120 a month which has great access to all of US and EU.
