FastVPS.co dead?

FastVPS.co dead?

krolawkrolaw Member
edited July 2012 in General

I know the website is still up, but all my "fast" VPSes have been dead for days... Their speed test VPS: http://173.208.15.99/100mb.test (listed on http://www.fastvps.co/announcements.php?id=1) fails to connect. The last communication (by email) talked about migration to France and that the control panel may not link for a few days, but even the France VPS I bought after the announcement and the one they migrated for me during the testing period is also dead. I know another account holder in the same boat.

Support tickets are being ignored and there's been no information sent out as to what is going on via email or on the website.

To add insult to injury, their website is still promoting the "new services" that they are offering.

Does anyone know what is going on, and whether there is an eta?

    Reading on WHT for the last month, I wouldn't touch them with a 10 foot pole. Run.

  • Well they had a .co domain, what did you expect from them? :D

    Some of their VPS/websites seem to be alive though, at least @joodle 's bangyhost.info still "loads".

    @gsrdgrdghd I didn't even know that VPS was still online ROFL!

  • @joodle lol. That's all I have to say.

    Update - The servers that were already in France are back up again. So that just leaves the ones taking days to migrate.

    Never understood the hate of a .co - I purchased one when they came out for 200$ or so, because not much else was available and yet it appears hosts would get better rep using a 1$ .info :)

    Because its a country level domain.

  • Which host uses a .info as their primary domain?

  • JarJar Member

    Anything but .com gets the hatred really. Oh well, I used .org for the first year of Catalyst and all I have to say is...suck it ;)

  • @jarland said: Oh well, I used .org for the first year of Catalyst and all I have to say is...suck it ;)

    You don't seem to be targeting a professional audience with CatalystHost so the customers probably don't even know the difference between .com and .org :D

    @gsrdgrdghd Only professionals, just not professionals in the hosting industry ;) ...we finally got it though.

  • @PAD said: Never understood the hate of a .co

    Its not hate, its hilarity! It wasn't too long ago on here that a VPS company bought a .co and said that it PROVED that they were a SERIOUS company.. They disappeared about a month later with everyone's money.

    Wasn't that Constantinos or Mr. Slade?

    @PAD this competitor of Hostbluff?

    Twitter Bootstrap Themes for your software projects. I recommend Prometeus and Catalyst Host

    @PAD said: Never understood the hate of a .co

    It's been used by a couple of high-profile failures (e.g. ipap.co, uptimevps.co) and no big successes that I'm aware of.

    In FastVPS.co's defence, up until their acquisition and migration, I was blown away with the service and value for money. I had some special requirements, I put them in a ticket, with the price I wanted to pay and "yep, we can do that" attitude. It was great.

    Now the France servers have fallen back down. One other server has migrated - but it says 8TB ram and the io seems terrible. Hope the good times return soon.

    @krolaw sounds like they need to modify the container config file, we had that error too. (8TB), I think it was with the old container config file not being compatible with the new OpenVZ kernel.

    Funny you should say that. The site now fails because the dns no longer resolves...

    France VPSes are back up, others are back down. DNS still does not resolve. So the head maybe cut off, but the body is still quivering. So anyone out there with OpenVZ and vSwap support that wants to replace my VPSes at FastVPS prices?

  • CafnCafn Member

    Is there any ETA for getting vps back ? or we all got scammed ? :\

  • IntcsIntcs Member
