Shardhost Info - Urgent Client Action

edited November 2013 in General

Due to recent unexpected trading circumstances Shard Hosting Solutions LTD has ceased trading with immediate effect. We urge all clients to take a backup of their data immediately as we cannot guarantee how long services will operate for before being disconnected by our upstream suppliers.

If you feel you are a creditor please contact:

  • lolwut?

  • I just paid for TWO yearly VPS a few days ago... will I get a refund or should I file a chargeback?

    I am limited in what I can say on this matter; however you may contact the email provided or seek recompense through the payment processor. The company is unable to provide refunds at this time

  • So what happened? The tax authorities came asking about the company, or what?

    So when will a proper statement be released detailing what is happening?

  • Well this is disappointing. Paid up for a year not quite a month ago, had a nice Observium setup running there.

    Here lies Nekki. He loved massive amounts of storage, K-Pop and calling people cunts.

    So, why not sell out? Always my first question in these scenarios.

    Dam, you beat me :P

  • Seriously... So you won't process a refund and you're not offering the service we paid for?

    FrostVPN.com so cheap

  • Based on the fact they have listed an accountant as the contact details this suggests liquidation, which does not happen over night, it is a concious decision and even under forced circumstances you could have quite easily given people more time.

    This is VERY bad play.

    That's sad. I was happy with my box. A well don't spend more than you can afford to lose i suppose.

  • feel sad for the provider, One more dead pool entry i suppose. although we don't know what happened.

    Also paid for a whole year when they last gave a deal in LET. and did not get around to using it also (problem loading a image and then got busy)

    I hope there is pro-rated refunds.

    did u have a box with them? for how long? what specs?

  • They had over £21,000+ cash in the bank on their last return so no good reason for you not to get a refund, I suggest someone hits up the accountant handling what is probably a liquidation/ company wind up and post the response here.

    If it is simply a wind up of the company they must satisfy creditors first, as someone who has paid up front you are considered a creditor.

    Not a dedi if it was unclear (sorry if it was)

    512 mb ram VPS. From 16 juli.
    Was running well as a small torrentbox for Routeros/ubuntu/debian. Also used it for a private vpn when i needed to test latency to other stuff :)

    They actually posted an ads on annualkvm.com in vpsboard early this month.

  • Yay! I can't even fucking take a backup.

    I'm glad that my offsite backups work. Useless company

    Thanked by 1Asim
  • And this folks is why the notion that registered companies are more trust worthy baffles me, they wind up the company and boom, gone and untouchable, a sole trader on the other hand... personally and legally liable.

    Well jbiloh is responsible for how long the VMs stay online for... I'm sure CVPS will happily take over the clients... CVPS_Chris

    Then Chris would have to deal with me again since I have had 2 VPS's with Shard. :P

  • They probably got some legal trouble after the data leaks from the recent hack(s). Or a hefty fine or something.

    Is that a request?

    Side note if this is a wind up they are required to notify all creditors within (I think) 30 days.

    confirmed

    I feel sorry for everyone who didn't have time to pull the data (or did not keep proper backups.)

  • We should have a list of the owner, address, company, picture, and pet, when a bussines comes to offer services.

    so if bussines fail, you can have a WALL OF SHAME, so nobody can fall on their shit, even if the person/company is involved, maybe in 2 months they come back with another name.

    Maybe the admins should request that info before they post an offer.

    Thanked by 1k0nsl

    Nothing for the moment

    But that would take all the fun out of the lowenddance :)

    PS: I'm down in Dallas :(

  • Just a reminder that CVPS has never done anything like this.

  • CVPS_ChrisCVPS_Chris Member, Provider

    I have contacted Sarah to see if I can be of any help to help clients stay online. Will see if she responds.

    ColoCrossing.com - Premier Datacenter and Cloud Solutions for Business

  • A coincidence, but the Gravatar looks so happy :)

  • Wow! 50 minutes after the... "short notice", vps disappeared! Oh, boy, that was short! Well, even if anybody saw that immediately and started taking backup, there were no time to complete and do the move! They was hosted in cc datacenter. I think, jbiloh shoud give us some more details, because some of the readers of LEB did buy yearly offers just some days ago. The offers posted here and in LEB and the datacenter of those offers is ColoCrossing (the owners of LEB/LET).

  • Businesses fail, they provided good service while they were up and something catastrophic has happened to them.

    Sucks if you bought a multi-month plan but give them a chance to make it right before we burn them at the stake. If they fail to make it right then let the hunt begin...

  • Well that fucking sucks, didn't even have time to pull down an updated backup, bollocks.

    Here lies Nekki. He loved massive amounts of storage, K-Pop and calling people cunts.

  • is the site shardhost.com??
