GeorgeDatacenter is unreliable
Long story short, I got one of the BF specials for their dedicated server on 28 Nov 2019. However, I can no longer login to the server since 26 Jan 2020, HetrixTools reported that the agent no longer send data and it goes offline for 3.5 hours. After that, the IP resolved with a VMWare ESXi panel instead of my original contents.
So I contacted them via ticket but they act like they are innocence. He promised to deliver another "better" replacement server for a few times but it is just empty promises. It is already 2+ months now but it is not resolved yet. The ticket is also closed automatically multiple times in between without solving it.
It is labelled as a
Intel Xeon L5520 | 8GB RAM dedicated server that is priced at only $10 per month with a one-time $15 setup fee. There's also a limited uses of new user discount code of 50% recurring on any product and I applied it to the dedicated server.
Before anyone judging me, yes I understand the server is cheap, but this is very unprofessional. If you don't think this price is sustainable, why offer it at the first place?
This is not the first poor experience with them. When I order the server last year, I mentioned clearly at the beginning that I want to install the dedicated server with Debian 9 and SSD as the boot device. After few days, it is delivered with CentOS 7 and HDD as the boot device. I requested a reinstallation and finally they got it right. The initial process is unprofessional and time wasting too.
I guess it all boils down to you get what you pay for. This is the reason why they are able to offer it so cheap.
