DO NOT Sign Up For Servage

Nov 22, 2008

I just wanted to forewarn ANY considering signing up with Servage, LOOK ELSEWHERE! They may be cheap, and they may be offshore (the reason I had chosen them), but they are probably the *worst* web host in business today.

I have been a customer with them for 2 years and here is an itemized list of issues with Servage to date (this doesn't include the issues Servage actually resolved):

- 1 month after signup, Servage experienced a DDoS; all their customers lost all their e-mails for a 72 hour period

- 8 TIMES in the past year, I've had to contact their support because my websites PING requests would consistently time out and the pages not load leading me to actually setup an account with SiteUptime (BTW, they NEVER made anything faster, they always would blame me, even on a static HTML site with no more than 2 simultaneous users)

- Servage advertises 99.98% uptime, my results from SiteUptime for the past 6 months has revealed to me that my actual uptime is about 93.1%, this is TERRIBLE, the worst in the industry in my opinion

- a month ago, every site on my Servage account had redirects to porn or spyware: my passwords are always a mix of foreign characters, uppercase, lowercase, numbers and no shorter than 8 characters. Servage tells me to delete all the files myself and change my passwords. They refuse to accept the responsibility that a hacker got into their master control panel

- They are HOLDING MY DOMAIN HOSTAGE! I made the mistake of signing up my main .com (all the others are with GoDaddy) with them since 1 domain was free with hosting for the life of my account. There is NO WAY they allow you to transfer this domain! They only let you DELETE it (then you have to wait for it to expire, backorder, etc. and chance losing your domain)

There are so many more issues that I could go over, but I think I've made my point.

If you're thinking Servage, I'd recommend you stay away!

There ARE other offshore hosts...

You Know It's A Bad Sign When

Oct 1, 2009

the salesman claims he will "give you uptime in the high nines", then the VPS account he just sold you goes offline three times the next day for about an hour each time. You know this for an absolute fact because every user on the 50 domains you just configured on the VPS has called you and informed you he or she "can't get my e-mail". Come to think of it, the salesman might have actually said "give me a high five".

Willing To Sign Up With

Sep 16, 2008

The experience I had in the past was with shared hosting. Now I am willing to operate a download website at which the files will be hosted on my server. I am not willing to invest a lot of money in the website resources in the first few months since I don't expect to receive a lot of traffic at the very beginning. Therefore, I decided to go for something in between shared hosting and dedicated hosting.

I decided to choose [url]

Intel Dual Xeon Harpertown
512MB Guaranteed SLM RAM
60GB RAID-10 Disk Space
800GB Bandwidth
4 Dedicated IPs
cPanel / WHM
Virtuozzo 4 with Power Panel
Fantastico, RVSkin, WHMCS Available

1- What do you think about WiredTree?

2- Can I control anything related to htaccess (like modrewrite) in VPS?

3- Do I truely need Fantastico, RVSkin, WHMCS cpanels or is cPanel just enough?

CPanel Sign Up

Dec 11, 2007

I just had a few questions. I recently purchased a VPS thta had WHM and cPanel (obviously). Its running off of CentOS.

now, I have a site created, but I dont know how to configure my site so that when someone clicks on the plan, they get directed to the particular spot to sign up (personal info...)Basically, I want to be able to allow an automated sign up without having to moderate it. However, I want to make someplans moderated only.

I was wondering if someone could help me with that.

Second, once someone DOES sign up, they would need to log in. I need to know how to configure the database (im guessing) so that they can sign in.

No SSL/Lock Sign

Sep 20, 2007

I just have a website with a dedicated IP address and shared SSL generated in CPanel.

I ask then my host to finish install, which they did.

Now, when I get into the certificated pages (HTTPS), I can see the https:// in the address box of the browser, however the lock sign does not show up.

How can I fix this? I would like to show this lock sign to show the site is secured, since not everybody knows what is a https connection.

HiVelocity Sign Up And First Month Review

Jun 3, 2009

I decided to give HiVelocity a chance, and I myself has used several provider such as SoftLayer, The Planet, LayeredTech, and others. Let me begin with the sign up.

The initial sign up was very quick and easy. I got on live chat and Kevin gave me an amazing deal exactly what I was looking for spec and price wise. I paid and verification was done by Kevin within five minutes. I told him not to install an OS and just give me a KVM, so I can do it myself. He promised me that it would be setup that night, but I was assigned IPs listed in various spam databases, so I requested them to be changed.

Kevin was very helpful and tried, but the person who assigns the IPs was gone for the day, and it was friday, and it could have not been done until monday. I told Kevin to hold the deployment until Monday, which he did. I had an issue over the weekend, and everything got confusing, so Kevin who was off on weekend actually called me to clear things up, and comes Monday Kevin got the server up by 3:00PM EST. It was working well, but then I wanted remote reboot which became a nightmare. It took them a week to put me in the right rack to give me remote reboot. I started to ask them on Monday and it was done on Sunday or something. This was pretty annoying I had to get the IP's changed and what not, but Kevin responded to all my calls, live chat, and emails. I was given a good reimbursement by Kevin and Steve which made it worth while, but since then it has been great! If you are looking for a server with HiVelocity or just a good deal you might want to talk to Kevin, you can find him on live chat

Sales - 10/10

Support - 8/10

Billing - (I wish they had some sort of thing for weekend)

Ban Free Email Account Sign-Ups

Nov 25, 2007

Most of our fraudulent transactions come via sign-ups with free email accounts such as yahoo, gmail and hotmail. Is anyone aware of a system which will prevent customers using these email addresses (or other free ones) for hosting plan sign-ups?

View 3 Replies View Related


Jan 7, 2007

On 3rd of Jan 2007, a person by the name <name removed>has made a fraudulent purchase for a hosting site I developed and designed.

The whole site can be viewed at [url]

I developed and designed the site. I'm writing everyone a message here to warn everyone NOT to sign up their hosting packages when they see the above stolen site. The site is sold only exclusively so only the fraudulent buyer owns a copy of it. And I will not sell this site to anyone again. I can't tolerate cheat and will seek legal advice to file a case against Paypal and this fraudulent buyer.

This briefly what happened..

A payment is made by this fraudulent buyer on 3rd of Jan 2007. I checked the payment mode made is instant and not by credit card. He proceed to contact me at MSN after the payment is made. We chat on MSN and I prepared the files for him to review online and zipped up a copy for him to download from my server. Everything goes on smoothly until I received an email notification from Paypal stating the fund is unauthorized and my account is freezed.

This is the very first time I encountered this despite I've been providing online services and received payments by Paypal for years. I was fluttered and tried to contact the fraudulent buyer and I assumed it could be a misunderstanding. The buyer did not respond to my MSN message.

Within mins after I MSN him for clarification, I received an email from the said Paypal account owner stating he doesn't authorized the transaction and demand a full refund else he will commence legal actions. It is only to my awareness that this could be a fraudulent case. I MSN the fraud buyer and told him I have logged his IP which I really did. He quickly responded stating he doesn't know what happened.

While MSN with the fraud buyer, I simultaneously replied the email to the said PP account owner for verification and I requested the PP owner to sign in to MSN for verification. The PP account owner was suddenly not responsive and I carry on with the MSN conversation with the fraudulent buyer alone. The conversation turns ugly which he insisted this is an issue with PP and because I use PP, I am responsible for this to happen.

He last sentence in the conversation ends with " learn a few lessions your ****ing american, lovely 9/11, I partyed that day oh what fun" and that said PP account owner signed in shortly after. And instead of having the conversation with the fraudulent buyer and I together, he opened a new window and at that moment, the buyer disappeard offline. Yes, I do SUSPECT both identities belong to 1 person but I will not revealed much details on this part at this moment of time because I do not want the fraudulent buyer to get prepared to cover his ***.

I am very disgusted and disappointed by the way Paypal has handled this.

After receiving Paypal notification of unauthorized fund, the email request me to sign in to the resolution center to resolve it. HOWEVER, when I clicked the resolved button, there isn't any appropriate option for me to state my case as my item is not shipped, it is being downloaded. And when I click on "open a dispute", the options are meant solely for BUYERS only. Puzzled for a while and not knowing what to do, I use the option for OTHER and typed in a few lines telling me that I have logged all correspondences and the IP address which I will forward to them immediately when they requested it.

And before I get relieved from the dismay and I spent the entire day worrying and hoping for their call or email, Paypal closed the case within 36hours the dispute is opened! I was informed by a few short sentence stating the unauthorized access is valid and the case is closed. I, the seller, who have lost both items and money are not being asked for verification are shocked of how can this be justified? And I'm also liable for the transaction fee incurred!! This is ridiculous!

I have tried to contact Paypal after the case is closed. I tried to call PP but all I received is auto helpline which I couldn't find the appropriate group and I tried to go to the Help center and couldn't find the appropriate option to send my concern. The whole help center is designed to help Buyers to complain against Sellers and for PP to increase their users base. But I still send it under the option of Seller Protection Policy. I have also tried to email Paypal numerous times asking for verification on what are the steps they have taken to justify the case is closed? How do they proof that the access is unauthorized and how do they proof that the two identities are of two individuals and not in cahoots?

I was utterly angry with this and I can truly understand why that fraudulent buyer is laughing at me choosing Paypal as the payment gateway. The fraudulent buyer is obviously taking advantage of Paypal's inability, reluctance and lack of attention to protect their sellers from fraudulent acts.

The most hilarious part is, yesterday, I received a bounced mail from the email address I sent to Paypal. And today, I received an email from Paypal today telling me they have noted the transaction detail and THAT is a reply of mine which I sent within 5 mins on the very FIRST day I received the unauthorized fund notice. That means they closed the case even without even knowing what happened. WTF!!

And please all, do not allow this fraudulent buyer to get away easily. I DID NOT sell any copy of this site to anyone and only to that fraudulent buyer who cheated it. So, there shouldn't be anyone owning it except that fraudulent buyer. Do not let any innocents to fall into his trap again! He is setting up a hosting business and I am sure he will read this post here.

I've seek legal advice and I'm filing a suit against Paypal and the fraudulent buyer with all the proofs I have collected and documented. It is very obvious and clear that Paypal has encouraged fraudulent attempts by their lack of commitment and dedication to their users. Being rich and influential doesn't not give them the rights to led us by the nose.

I'm giving a chronological view of the whole incident and I'll follow up with more details. I will only do so after the case is filed and the hearing is done. And the identity of the Paypal account owner will be revealed after the filing is made.

If you are that fraudulent buyer reading this, I've given you chances to admit it and paid for it but you disregard it. I will honour my word and make sure everyone gets what they deserved. This is my hardwork which I spent time and effort doing it and you take it away within mins without guilt, I've told you it is going to cost you 100 times more when you cheat. Be very prepared for it.

Do they really let me use the 510 GB & 5010 GB B/W I'll get ?

Last week I bought hosting in .Everything is ok there except one very "small" thing - very often my site during loading breaks down (I get blank page). I three times asked servage for help. It's great that their reaction is very fast but despite their statements that problem is fixed it's again and again my page break down.

is it possible that problem exists because my site is based on Jommla 1.5? I have tried and to use servage auto installer and manually installed joomla.

I have found so many praises about servage that cannot understand why is wrong with my site?

Geek Rack - 8 Days After Payment, No Sign Of Server

Mar 12, 2008

I paid for a server with 8 days ago, and have seen no sign of the server being setup.

Now I know they are just a reseller, they don't own or order the hardware or even have physical access to the servers, they simply get 25% off and just resell their servers. That said you'd expect at least some sort of notification on when the server would be ready by, especially by now, right?

Stay Away From

Aug 13, 2008

Servage is the worst webhosting I have ever hosted with. From continuous cluster problems to stupid billing issues.

When my website is not giving a 404 error there are mysql problems.

This is a hard lesson learnt. I will never recommend or host with them again.

I wired them $90.30 for balance due since July. My banking institution even gave me the reference number and other transaction details. The funds never returned to my account. To this date their dumb billing department cannot locate the payment. When I contact supported they continually gave some cryptic message that is of no help. I forwarded them screenshots of my bank account and even gave the reference numbers provided by my banking instition, still no dice, account suspended.

To add insult to injury they added another period of webhosting to my balance owed so it now totals $180.60 owed and I lost revenue from my search campaigns.

company for over a month or 2
contacting them (support tickets) is as useless as not!..
their reply is always simply: we checked and nothing at our side! (asking for a clarification simply gets u nothing!)

problem is simply ONLY with ftp uploads!
my line upstream is 256Kbps (32 KB/sec) and down 1Mbps and i was always capable of pushing up to 2.2 GB/day ((i monitor my traffic all the time))
but just recently some weird things started appearing...

before uploads would never go under 27-26 KBs on my FTP client
now it's so normal finding it dropping to 15,10,4,2, 0!
ya a whole 0!
and that's not just for a second or two
it can stay like that for maybe aminute then go up back again!
And upon watching my traffic statistics closely, i found myself pushing at the most 1.6 GB only a day!
another funny thing is that files used to appear AND PARTIALLY in the root directory instead of the desired directory!

Servage Hacked

Dec 2, 2008

We've been hacked, again. By we, I mean, many many servage clients as far as I can tell. Unlike past Javascript injections, this time it is much more serious, at least to me anyhow. Here is what I know:

Somehow, someone has gained full access to my (and again, many others) control panel on

While on there, they have generously created their own ftp accounts with full access.

Every website I host with servage had a number of files uploaded to them.

These files consisted of one or more .htaccess files that contained a number of rewrites pointing to the other files they uploaded.

The new files were actually cleverly hidden inside other directories where they would go unnoticed. For example, on some of my sites that have forums, they were put into /forum/include/tmp/(bogus files), and in my galleries, put into such directories as /images/photos/(bogus files).

The files themselves are as follows:
a .htaccess file
and tpl.php

The links.txt file itself is over 1.9mb and contains links to hundreds of other infected SERVAGE hosted websites ( I have checked at least 30 of them in and found all are hosted at servage).

Here is an example of the links.txt file:|black break spring|free exploited black teens|nudist photographys|my nudist links
And so on and so forth.

Keys.txt is a giant list of pornographic phrases and texts.txt is just random phrases in general.

I have contacted servage about this multiple times and have gotten their basic cookie cutter response of please remove the files from all your websites, change all your passwords and delete the new ftp accounts created. I asked them point blank if they've been hacked and they've continued to say no.

If you are a servage customer, make SURE you log into your control panel RIGHT NOW and check to see if new ftp accounts have been created. After that, look at your website statistics and click on DISPLAYED PAGES and look for odd entries like /blabla.html/links?12982.html or some such thing and pay attention to where the link is showing up (What directory) which will help you remove all of the crap someone put on there.

This is very serious guys... as I said, someone had full access to my Control panel. With that, they could enter into any of my sql databases, fully see all the passwords to each database (as servage kindly shows your password to anyone when you click on connection information) not to mention any sensitive customer data I may have had stored in my databases.

This hack also kills your website in a number of ways:

1) It tries to redirect any page on your site to the index.php uploaded to your site which then directs you to porn sites.

2) This hack spams over 3000 links to google every day, coming from your website, leading to sites that are deemed bad by google. This ruins your page rank and your site, as some of mine have since I missed this latest attack for 2 weeks, will go down the drain.

3) WHen someone googles your website, it will come up with tons of porn links. My daughters site was one of the infected ones... she's 9, and when you look up her site it shows that it goes to porn.

let me know if you've been targeted as well and what we, if anything, can do about it. Servage NEEDS to admit they've been hacked, in fact, the damage to my businesses because of their failure to notify my of these events seems like it should be on their shoulders.

Getting the same old rubbish as everyone else, we will move you to different server, we will fix your database etc. When will servage stop blaming there customers and step-up admit there is a problem and fix it? The support is fast but there just monkeys repating the same as the last.

I have been with them for 3+ years now, and this will be the last. Just put a request in for a full refund of this years fee's. The 1st year maybe the 2nd there service was excellent, since then its got worse and to a point now where its dam write criminal to charge people for what they offer.

Do your self a favour people stay clear of this company it has wasted alot of my time.

Servage Customer For Several Years ...

Jan 19, 2009

I've been a satisfied customer at Servage for several years but the last couple a days is getting a little sweat on my forehead...

I'm not sure but some really weird things is happening at servage right now ....

I've tried to login at my controlpanel in almost a week - several times a day, but are not allowed access at all . Get the message that etiher username,password or captcha is entered wrong... I then try to reset my password etc - and it works all fine until I'm trying to login with the new one...same result - NOT working.

After several non working tries I decide to write them personal emails at,, (which is the founders private email ), but NO answer .... usually they're really kind and efficient and answers within a few hours, but this time : NO ANSWER .....

This evening I would then try to contact them again, and see on their webpage if I have missed some important email adresses, and I was QUITE surprised to notice that almost ANY of their subpages is leading to a non-existant page - EXCEPT from the order page.... pretty weird, I think

I'm not saying that they're on their way to close down, but it is actually an option if we take a look on the world economy in these days...

I would be glad if other Servage Customers could tell me if it is possible for them to login at their controlpanel at Servage
