AlphaRacks shared hosting disk full

dahartigandahartigan Member
edited March 2018 in General

Hey guys,

A few days ago I opened a ticket to Alpharacks to let them know that their disk is full on their shared hosting node "latitude" and they said they are working on it. Nothing has changed.. check out this screenshot:

I know that they suck and are to be avoided, but for 99 cents I had to see for myself.

I'm appealing to anyone reading this, STAY AWAY! Go spend your dollar on candy or something unless you like to collect useless hosting :P

EDIT: I forgot to add, you really do get what you pay for!

    Haha yeah, a rack full of dell laptops would be quite funny. I think I have an old latitude stashed away somewhere that I was going to use as a retro rig but never quite got around to it. Along with all of my other unfinished projects.

    I know, it's Alpharacks. I'm not using them for anything important. Nothing to worry about. Still, how do you even manage your servers bad enough for this to even be a problem?

    You dont manage them.. Simple, people pay anyway so why bother doing the work, you are living proof of that.

    Pay, sure. But I do not know how well my $0.99 ($0.66 for them after fees) makes them able to rent Quadranet servers. Obviously I do not use it for websites that anyone visists, I use them for putting up notes in a html document that I need to be public as such. There's really no reason for me to pay more than I need to. And by the way, my website still works. I did some testing with a script that required MySQL but then again, no one will notice it because no one uses the website.

    Obviously I could have gotten hosting in the same price range with good reputation, for example I use Vikinglayer for my blog that's actually getting some hits once in a while, and it works perfectly. Now, I would get better quality by taking my time and migrating the sites over, but why would I? Literally no one would see any difference, and it would take up my time & some money. I just do not see the reason to. I've never stated that I recommend Alpharacks for anything, but for what I do, there's nothing wrong with them.

    because if something is $0.99 10,000 cheap skates will but it in no time, then people start to use it and you start getting exactly the issues you describe, but they don't care because they already have the money and the cycle continues.

    well given that you bumped a 2 week old topic to report issues and talk about how bad they are, I sense a conflict between your posts :)

    Either way, cheap garbage remains cheap garbage while people continue to buy cheap garbage.

    No, most of my packages with them even have zero files installed, there's nothing on them. There's a reason for me not using them to host my one site with traffic, my blog. I knew this would be the case. Just because I remember this thread and chose to contribute with my found, that I do belive is quite funny, that dosen't mean I care about those websites. If I did, I would have brought some shared space over at Vikinglayer, or some vps hosting with OVH, but well, I don't. I went to the domain to see if it was still online, and it was. I went to the MySQL to see if it was running, and I though the reason for it not running was quite the topic of this thread, but maybe even worse, so I posted it. There's nothing conflicting. Hell, why do you think I can spend my time posting on LEB instead of actually migrating the sites? Because.. Well.. I do not care about them. I can assure you that.

  • AnthonySmithAnthonySmith Top Provider

    no worries, I am just pointing out that you yourself are giving all the reasons that they are able to continue to stay running while "managing your servers bad", people realize its crap and don't use it or use it for minimal stuff, and now your saying you have multiple packages ahahaha.

    Yeah, I pack every website that I have "idle" in there. Until I get enough that a VPS would save me money I'll keep ordering more..

    AlphaRacks and /mod snip/ do no expect you to host any sites on their servers. That is not their business model.

    Their business model is to sell super mega hosting packages for $5.00. They rely on people not caring about the $5.00 loss and just move on. If they can get 100 suckers a month for a server they are paying $10.00 a month, that is $490 is profit.

    Get a bunch of LES and be done with it.

    You can host many websites on a 128mb and even build your own HA cluster with geolocation.

    For a teeny more $/€. And you would sponsor a good cause.

    Get colocation @ swoscom or FS Data. For DDoS protected colocation (I think) - contact IP-Only.

    2,000 SEK per month, you say?

    I have no idea if this Cygrids are any good, but they were the first result for "cheap dedicated server Sweden" on Google. The website's in Swedish, so I can only gleam the specifications and price. https://www.cygrids.com/servers.html

    I can't believe that I'm helping mikho take more of my money...

    I checked with FS Data, think it was a year ago, perhaps 1,5 years ago. They didn’t have ipv6 at that time. Perhaps they have now?
    With colo comes an investment in hardware. Hardware that costs money, money I’ve tied up to pay for the other locations.

    Perhaps sometimes in the future? I am continously monitoring the Swedish market for offers.

    EDIT: swoscom looks decent, and it’s closer to ”home”. I’ll keep that in mind.

    I checked and their cheapest option with 2 disks ( Basic Server DBS-G3-SAT ) ends up at 965 sek/month.

    That is with ”only” 1TB bandwidth. Adding another 9 and it suddenly costs ~ 2900 sek/month.

    I’ll keep looking.
    If you find interesting locations with rent or tent to own equipment. Let me know and I’ll take a closer look.

    Because knowledge is different on people. And shared hosting is easy to use and faster: click, click and done. You don't have to optimize or install anything.

    Again, not all the people around the world is equal to you or me.

    Each has its own purpose. If you only want a website fast. Then shared is a perfect alternative.

    Actually, there are too many tutorials available to set up, optimize, secure or scale the systems. I think most of the people will be able to prepare their own system following those.

    I can remember those days (8-9 years ago) when I used to use a shared hosting. Honestly, I was never happy, too many limitations, no control over system, downtime, compromised system forced me to switch host within a few months of the interval. Not sure how shared hosting providers are doing these days, however, still I see numerous complaints around the forums.

    No, they won't. Probably just the people around us. A lot of people get scared when they see a black screen with a prompt. That's why drag and drop page builders exist, even I believe they receive a lot of support tickets.

    Then thanks to their incomplete knowledge, those VPSes turn to spam boxes, botnet and ddos attackers...
