[FALSE REVIEW] Stay away from TheHostingSquad.com

[FALSE REVIEW] Stay away from TheHostingSquad.com

edited August 2012 in Reviews

Hello, I had a VPS from TheHostingSquad.com

The owner is a rude incompetent liar, He claimed that he worked out of an office with 12 other employes. He also claimed that he had 4 full racks and nearly 1k customers.

I was a gullible retard to listen to what he said, I admit that I had no idea what I was doing.

Heres where the problems started, I made a ticket about the clock, it sat for 7 hours, then I got a reply from a rep named Randy

"Sorry I'm at school"

I said OK, figured it was collage or somthing, then I talked to the kid on the phone, hes sounds 12, but I dont care what the age is, so I went along with it.

Then my VPS got deleted, and he said that it was cause I was hosting a dropbox, and claimed that that can be used for piracy. I DID GET A REFUND THOUGH.

Anyways, stay clear of this kid.

Upd. from moderator @breton Review seems to be false, no proofs were given.

  • Theres no way he has a 4 full racks, @Randy only started a few weeks ago. By hosting a dropbox do you mean https://www.dropbox.com/ ?

    I know, I'm Dale Maily.

  • Anyone who is familar with @Randy knows to stay away from them.

    Even though this is a wht style post, how ever,

    @Jackson_W said: The owner is a rude incompetent liar, He claimed that he worked out of an office with 12 other employes. He also claimed that he had 4 full racks and nearly 1k customers.

    If I am not mistaking, Limestone doesn't do colocation, Started less than six months ago (Not a rebrand but a fresh business) so 1k clients has to be another false claim.

    I can not get this fact that, why lie to your users/clients? Just admit you are new and let it roll. If you are someone who has rebranded like us, admit that as well. Doesn't hurt to be honest.

    Any way, best of luck with your new host.

    Time is good and also bad. Life is short and that is sad. Dont worry be happy thats my style. No matter what happens i won't lose my smile!

    I highly doubt he has 1k however it isn't impossible ;)

    @NinjaHawk said: Not with a one mans rockband and rented server from LSN ;)

    That's an incorrect statement.

    1 Person can handle 1k clients easy.

    Say he has a similar spec node to me at LSN get 60/node

    He'd only need about 14-15 nodes.

  • TazTaz Disabled

    I never mentioned handling, No not him! I have barely seen him advertising on any decent place where he have a decent rep.

    I will be frank, even our small ass brings around 10 signups a week with almost 0 affort , haven't done a proper advertising yet besides two post on let and one on v7. (Well I guess cause we are not completely new and our old site redirects to current one ;) ) But I can not imagine him. No, not even if I am bribed with pizza and soda for life.

    @Infinity Correct. This one has had it written all over it since before it's creation.

    It's the typical flow of Post 1: How do I start a vps company? Post 2: I'm starting a vps company. Post 3: We've been in business for several years and have over 1,000 clients!

  • @Jackson_W said: He also claimed that he had 4 full racks and nearly 1k customers.

    It takes less than 1/2 a cabinet to host over 1k VPS

    Hi, when did a i say i have 1k customers.?and i did not even provide any phone support?

    can you please let me know your ticket ID? or provide some proof?

    from the looks of it you are trying to frame me.

    let me know your ticket ID or show us the email you get when i responded to your ticket with ""Sorry I'm at school"

    guys before you listen to this guy, maybe get him to show some proof? that will clear things up,

    He claimed that he worked out of an office with 12 other employes. He also claimed that he had 4 full racks and nearly 1k customers.

    i did not say that, (proof please)

    Thanks

  • TazTaz Disabled

    @Randy can you please edit out and organize your reply by using quotes and other nice things?

    I dont know, I have my suspicions that quite a bit of this is true, albeit exaggerated.

    please refer to

    @Randy said: Its from Lsn

    my Servers are all from LSN , i did sate in my LET offer thread, so there is somthing fishy about your post?

  • I saw this coming ages ago!

    http://www.lowendtalk.com/discussion/3090 - Errrrrr http://www.lowendtalk.com/discussion/3275 - Can't even manage linux http://www.lowendtalk.com/discussion/3059 - Horrendous grammar http://www.lowendtalk.com/discussion/3005 - Cause you live with your parents?

    I am surprised that @TheHackBox has not ripped your head off for horrible grammar.

    Im not trying to be rude im just saying this is all rather obvious in my eyes.

    The bad grammar/spelling in Randys posts gives me an OCD twitch. Anyone checked out the knowlegebase articles on his site?

    https://www.thehostingsquad.com/clientexec/index.php?fuse=knowledgebase&view=KB_viewArticle&articleId=4 ^^ They have a 30 day money back guarantee which excludes vps LOL

    i will let the proof do its thing, not gonna answer your silly questions untill op shows proof

    yes i do have school.

    even if i have school, what dose that have to do with this topic? dose it mean that what @OP Said is true about 'I am at school"? that makes no sense

    and here at singapore most schools dont open on saturdays , that also proofs that @ OP post is crap.

    untill he provides proof maybe you guys should not stand against me?

    Takes less time to post your age. LET loves a good mystery every now and then. Being shady and intentionally avoiding questions is a recipe for disaster.
