6 ) beeing d*cks *Why This Review* Originally the intention was to forget as soon as possible about what happened in the past three months and to move on with our new isp. To our regret, Leaseweb has besides the overall lack of service in the past months found it neccessary to kill our network connection without notice a day prior to the ending of our contract. Eventhough the impact is minimal, this gesture speaks for itself. *Ordering a Server*
Having been a leaseweb customer directly and indirectly for several years in theyre budget segment we to be fairly honnest have rarely had any trouble ordering, nor have we had any trouble with the delivery of the purchased servers.
We experienced differently when ordering the following :
Dell Poweredge 1950 2x Quad Core Xeon L5320 16 GB DDR2 4 x 300GB SAS raid 1+0 IP KVM card 1 x 100Mbps Full-Duplex 10 Mbps (95%) bandwith SLA : Best Effort OS : Debian Ordered 09/30/2008 - payment sent immediatly
i guess this is the first time in ... 6 years since i do online business, that i ever got this kind of bad service.
I purchased a server from leaseweb, a dual xeons, on 13 nov 2008. They said that activation takes 7-9 business days. As weird as it seems i asked first if the delivery could be speeded up, and after 1 day they answer to my mail, that the delivery cannot be sped up, because that's that.
Don't get me wrong here, but as far as i know a datacenter operates 24/7, not with business days and holidays.
I sent a ticket in yesterday, and i got no replies, and as far as you see my server should have been delivered the LATEST, on 24 november.
It's 26, and they way you saw server from Leaseweb ... i saw it too.
Anyway, this is just my experience, and i might just have ran into a tech that did not eat his pizza today, and became grumpy, and thats why i have waited for 2 weeks for my server with no resolution.
Anyway, i am filing chargeback now on paypal, as i don't feel like getting the server anymore.
LE: My SSC username and password is not working anymore either, for some unknown reason.
Paypal dispute charged. ... All i can say is wow, i have been very fortunate so far, and ... i NEVER encountered such lousy customer support.
I'm not a direct client of Leaseweb, but it's not a secret that my domain is pointing at their servers.
I purchased a shared hosting plan from a reseller and since more than 43 hours my domain is down! My provider (the reseller) said he's waiting for Leaseweb support... according to my informations, in more than 24 hours they just made a reboot of the server!
I'm really bored of waiting with no chance of intervention! My provider says he can't do anything from his side, i can't contact Leaseweb cause i'm not a client... please, help, what can i do?
I ordered a leaseweb express server 4 box with windows server 2003 and have been running it, installed some software etc which worked out fine.
Anyways, I wanted to disable tcp/ip filtering which I did and afterwards it prompted me that I would have to reboot the server for the changes to take place, I clicked ok and it rebooted. Now I just can't connect with remote desktop, I tried everything.
I'm guessing it either shut down or didn't reboot properly? I tried sending an email to leaseweb support 2 days ago but still no shadow of any reply..
It says that I can reboot the server using the SSC but when I log in there, I can't really find any reboot option.
I'm moving on to new pastures and I'm looking to cancel my leaseweb server. I've been through their main site, self service centre and can't seem to locate anything. Does anyone know how to cancel a server with them? I'd ask in sales chat, but each time I try they're offline. I'm worried it's getting closer to the renewal date and I'll be tied in for another month...
I've ordered server from LeaseWeb two weeks ago and still wait for the server setup. Its looks to slow for me - we are used to wait only a few hours for servers setup in datacanters in the US.
I'm afraid that such slow response will be also in response and level of the support. Do you think I should cancel this service and look for other provider in Europe? If yes please suggest such provider.
I've paid in advance by paypal for 3 month(~ 500 EURO). Do you think I will be able to cancel that payment?
I am trying to host a website from my home computer. Currently I have it setup and it works and everything. I have my virus database updated, router update, firewall up and running, and I am ready for people to try hacking. But there is one thing I can do. I can't seem to get my website online. I go to whatismyip.com and try that IP address on both the computer I am hosting the website from and a different computer downtown but I can access it. I am currently using webs.com to tell people to download COMODO EasyVPN to access my website. But they have to download it first to be able to access my website. At one time I had to load it using the IP address I go to whatismyip.com but it took it six minutes to load and with the EasyVPN it only takes seconds. I am just wandering if my internet connection is just timing out and not letting anyone on. Is there a software I can use that works like COMODO EasyVPN but lets you type in my External/Public IP address and it go to my website. I mean my connection is slow but with the COMODO EasyVPN software it makes people connecting to my computer fast. I need a software that tunnels my connection to a clients computer.
I've had four different hosts in 1½ year, and I'm noe experiencing problems again with my current host, Lunarpages. Therefore, I really want to make the right choice this time. It would be such a pleasure to see my website run without any problems for more than just 8-9 months at a time...
Anyway, let me try to describe it. It's based on the Content Management System phpFusion. It has news, downloads, forums and screenshots. The site itself is c. 2 GB large (because of forum attachments and screenshots), the download section is c. 15 GB, and the site use up about 700 GB og bandwidth each month. In the forum, there's 100.000 posts, growing day for day, of course. We have 12.000 registered members, but we only have c. 50 members online at the same time -- maximum. Throughout a week, 2.000 members log in, but as said, they are never online at the same time. The members are mostly from Europe, but we do also have members from USA and Australia.
I've had both Lunarpages and Servage as hosts, but I have experienced problems with both of them. Servage has a daily bandwidth limit which I had overlooked, and the website constantly exceeded this. Lunarpages is very, very slow when using a MySQL DB.
I'm not familiar with hosting issues at all, and I'm planning to set up an affiliate webisite for online gambling. Hostgator, which after reading the posts on this forum has been my choice doean't accept affliate webistes.
am trying to set it up to host my website. After giving it the ol' college try, I might have done it, I think. I wanted input about what I have done wright and/or wrong configuring the VPS and cPanel/WHM? Please let me know what else I need to post (MX record, A records, DNS zone files, etc...)?
So far I have done: - Initial set up of WHM - Created a new account - Added additional IP address t o the server - Edited the DNS zone file - Set up nameservers with registrar, godaddy.com
*I think this is done correctly, if I go to (www).mysite.com, I see: Index of / Parent Directory Private etc...
**I used a guide posted at (www).hostlibrary.com (link at bottom)
linux OS and version: CentOS v4.5 (centos-4-x86_64) Kernel Version: 2.6.9-023stab044.4-smp control Panel: cPanel w/ WHM

I have a small but somewhat popular space-history website. Very simple HTML that I typed into wordpad, but it has long pages full of photos. Since 2003, I've been using media3.net with their business-class Windows service.
A few weeks ago, mypages were hacked, and a one line script inserted that called an Adobe Flash file. Apparently this was a server-wise attack, not just my web pages. Media3.net cleaned this up, but now it has happened again.
This is bad, because Google blacklists my site, and folks on Wikipedia get upset because there are a lot of links to my site.
How are they breaking in to media3.net? I think I must change hosts, but I don't want to put my image-intensive site on overbooked hardware with limited bandwidth.
If I get a reseller account with like 50 gigs more space (or any amount) than I actually use, can I use some of that space I'm paying for to backup my home computer? This isn't really a question of how (although I'll accept advice) but more a question of 'is this typically allowed' or 'does anybody else do this'?
I am planning to start a web-site in which video-sharing(video-hosting) is going to be the primary concept. I need support for a very CPU and RAM instensive program called 'ffmpeg'. I also need a minimum of 2.5TB of disk space and 15TB of bandwidth every month. I tried looking for an ideal host all over the web, but I am more confused than ever.
I am having a video sharing website designed. It's not going to be too busy to start with but I appreciate it will use a lot of bandwidth. I wont be offering the embed option so maybe that will limit the strain.
Any ideas on a good US-based host that can offer me a dedicated and managed solution with fast and friendly support? Any ideas of a monthly cost for a start-up?
have just had a website created for me where I can store my photos on. It uses JSP + MySQL for the databse which stores the photo IDs, photo location etc. I want to get it up and running on the net but have no idea how to do this!
I'm promting a new Joomla! website and a new vBulletin forum. The website serves to news articles, some statistics (related to a football club) and also a small photo and video gallery. The forum would have an average of 40-50 online users.
I'm considering to choose the baby package offered by Host Gator. Would that be a good choice?
So, I switched off of one of my providers for my website about a month and a half ago (I won't mention their name). From my previous host I switched to HawkHost.
HawkHost was amazing throughout our entire month and a half stay. When we first went to them, they converted one of our domains into a subdomain and transferred all of the files for us and did a tremendous amount of extra work they didn't have to do. They were quick at responding and their servers were blazing fast. Unfortunately, they had to pack up our stuff for us and we had to leave due to a DDoS attack. But they didn't kick us out before trying some measures first to help prevent the DDoS attack. During the attack, my website still remained online and a lot of the traffic was being thrown out by the security measures they put in place for me for free. But the attack got through those security measures after 24 hours and took down their servers. Even after we left, the IP was still getting hit and they had to null-route the IP address. We do thank HawkHost for attempting to stop it, and we do not hold any grudges, infact we're very thankful they did what they did for us!
Overall Experience with HawkHost.com: Support : 10/10 Network Speed : 10/10 Uptime (for the month and a half we were there : 10/10 Willingness to help : 10/10
Now! After HawkHost confirmed the attack has stopped, we set our website at a different host. I hope it doesn't get attacked again, because switching hosts isn't the top item on my Fun things to do this Friday. We switched to IGXHost.com
Our current experience (only been 24 hours): Great support, we ordered in the middle of the night and they transferred our account within an hour! (It's not a small account either). The staff was very helpful and quick to respond which is amazing because it was 1AM. (HawkHost answered in the middle of the night too). Not really sure about anything else except their support, I will update you guys! But so far IGXHost and HawkHost are about the same quality in support (exceptional!).
Anyways! I'll keep you guys updated.
We here at Data Host Direct would like to thank the staff at IGXHost and HawkHost.
if there is a hosting company which provides free SEO tools or other web site promotion services for its customers. I know the companies which provide their customers with free domains if they buy their hosting, but I have never heard of hosting companies which provide free website promotion services for their clients, do such companies exists?
