How reliable is hostsolutions.ro?

Hi. I am searching for server provider that doesn't mind about copyright material linking. Or at least, I need a provider that doesn't mind with many takedown notice as long as I remove them.

After a big of digging, @cociou name constantly popping up.

So I am wondering, how reliable is hostsolutions.ro?
I was his user back then and the server was working great and he is a friendly person too.

My website will receive quite a lot of user and great uptime is a must. After seeing some bad reviews, I am wondering if I can rely on his server?

Also @cociu, is there any ongoing promotion?

Hopefully no offence is taken by cociu.

Thanks!!

Sorry for my bad English

  • If you buy a dedicated, I think it should be mostly ok. I am not entirely sure about VPS for critical stuff, though.

  • I believe it's 50/50 - they had a massive network issue for quite some time which I believe has now been resolved, but recently they had another major network issue with a core router dying without redundancy or an immediate replacement available which led to more downtime... It's good for your generic stuff like linux iso's but nothing critical in my eyes.

    Hi. Unfortunately many comments are just saying whether they are bad or otherwise which I don't know if they really tried his service or not.

    I need reviews that at least give in-depth description of which part is bad or which is good and the user really tried instead of copying what he read somewhere else.

    It's all fun and games jumping between providers who race their way to the bottom or LEB front page, till you lose something important trying to save a couple of pennies.

    Remember, you get what you pay for.

    At some point, ultimately, every decent provider will mind about copyright material linking, especially when the take-down notices multiply, so this forum is probably not the place where you should be looking for a provider that doesn't mind about copyright material linking

    @JohnRoe I dunno bro but really now ... do you expect anybody in their right mind to seriously recommend you host your mission critical crucial reliability required website on hostsolutions?

    Most of the time their stuff is working great and it's really very nice for the price

    But high-availability is a whole different ballgame. If that's what you need, then you would do well to seek out a provider with that proven capability and specific focus. If @cociu wants to get into that particular area of the hosting market I think it certainly could happen with some work - but you should then expect to pay more than lowend prices for that level of service and support.

    Right now what you see is what you get. You are going to have to decide for yourself - and if you're looking at a long history of maybe good enough, hey usually pretty good but not perfect ... I don't know what else you would expect someone to tell you, really.

    Here is my 2cents. @cociu tries his level best to offer something that fits the bill. He does his best despite all the negativity and comes with his own flavor. Ffs, the guy actually owns a DC and if you want a host that ignores usual DMCA, he is probably the only non shady DC out there?

    But in order to win the LE world, you have to enter the race to the bottom. Which requires cost cuttings.

    The perfect example would be Headphones and charging cables.

    A premium branded one might cost 20, but will serve you multiple months while the dollar store branded one will cost a dollar but you will buy one every month. In the long run, are you really saving?

    So you buy the dollar store one when you forget your cable at home while out for a weekend with family and toss it away after some time.

    Ah, but with a difference:

    • earlier, the OP cast it as a naked inquiry into providers who don't mind abundant take-down notices, which he then retracted (deleted) three hours later
    • this time, the OP cast it as a clothed inquiry into the reliability of HostSolutions, which had the effect that helpful participants scrambled to offer their best advice about the reliability of said provider

    Most overused word of the last decade. Anytime anyone criticizes something, it's "toxic".

    Toxic: "containing or being poisonous material especially when capable of causing death or serious debilitation." Also a Britney Spears song. Neither is appropriate here.

    @JohnRoe i will try to define hostsolutions from my part , lather you will take your personal conclusions and you can follow any review :

    until 2 month ago we have been a mess due of many factors , first of one is growing fast and uncontrolated and here is a small town and is difficult with the employers ..

    second , 80% of related reviews was about vps (openvz 6 more precise) and we have use a module developed for a 3-rd person wich the support in the last year was zero so .. finnaly we had to change this shit module to a new one .

    in the last year we have change our location and this was caused also some problems.

    conclusion (my personal one) we are not the best , will be verry difficult to be the best some day but not imposible because we work on this and some changes is made yet and we still continue to improove this , i will not dissapear like many "top providers " from LET or at least many of them was blame me personally and finnaly was scam and dissapear. I can assure and reasurre i am dedicated 100% in this business now and i hope understand my principal interest is put this in order. Right now i cannot tell i will offer you 100% uptime but i can guarantee when we have any kind of problem we work 24/24 until the problem is resolved.

    Is much to say like always i will not stay to explain because the negative person will still find a way to blame. So finally the client will decide what kind the service/cost want.

    BuyVM - LU location. Tolerable as long as you honestly remove the content.
    Check for stock here: https://buyvmstock.com/

    If you're happy, use my affiliate/referral code

    Also, as many have said, no proper legit business will "ignore" any takedown request. If there would be such a provider, please tell Mr. Gottfrid Svartholm (TPB founder) and Kim Dotcom (Megaupload) to host their sites/infra there.

    As long as you keep removing reported content, you're fine with most of the hosts.

    BuyVM Luxembourg location is supposed to be getting block storage "slabs" sometime in 2020 but probably not for another several months at least. However - with the anycast IP and DDoS protection features, BuyVM does seem to be a reasonable candidate for some front end duty in a more robust / redundant system design - which possibly could proxy backend storage elsewhere (or something along those lines - it's not exactly obvious to me how it might work in any precise detail). Again I would just encourage @JohnRoe to do more research on high-availability systems if that's indeed what their important application demands - just be prepared to pay for all the necessary redundancy, engineering, and support accordingly.

  • Can your site scale across multiple servers? HostSolutions, M247, Scaleway, OVH, BuyVM are some options that tend to be lenient about DMCA notices, with BuyVM as one of the most reliable options.
