  • GVH again? If there is a vote for the most popular provider, I think I know the winner lol.

  • LeoKLeoK Member

    I once read a post where someone one said they were inept. I think this shows they are actually well aware.

  • there is always drama from gvh/john

  • It might not be a very useful article but it still is containing some truth, alot of people just complain out of nowhere without any valid reason. this article might give them some common sense and make them realize they should work things out with the provider at first before throwing dirt on a company's reputation.

  • In fairness, @MCHPhil has a similar policy in his TOS (#13):

    If you run to a forum and cry about something before trying to work it out with me you will void your refund rights.

    Though My Custom Hosting provides a pretty solid service (from my experience). I don't think it's unreasonable for providers to want to resolve things without being blackmailed in forums. Nevertheless, the Internet could certainly use fewer GVH threads, IMHO.

    Yeah I've seen this before.

    This is how all hosts should be tbh. If you haven't even attempted to work things out with the provider, you can't blame them for not sorting it.

    Even after all this, GVH will still grow and attract clients due to their rock-bottom prices. Many who accuse GVH left, right and center in public forums have VPS with them and contribute to their business.

    I highly doubt whether any other normal hosting company can add this content to their FAQ and get off without some loss of clients/revenue. GVH is clearly not bothered because they are aware that even if they give high-school tech support, even if their network is unstable, even if **** fill in the blanks ****, nothing is going to happen.

    At most they will get some heat in public forums (which will in no way improve their attitude towards business, as confirmed by this FAQ), but they know that nobody is going to cancel services.

    It is a lot better to leave GVH alone and stop opening a new GVH promotion/publicity thread everyday.

    This. The only GVH posts should be replies to their offer threads, which should be actual customer experiences so new comers can know what type of service GVH provides.

    (And with that said, I'm not going to contribute further to bumping this thread.)

  • @zombiekiller753, Why did you think I know?

    It's by default when you download WHMCS, there's file named htaccess.txt. You only need to rename that file becomes .htaccess to get the SEF URLs.

    http://docs.whmcs.com/Support_Center#Search_Engine_Friendly_URLS


    That's why I'd like to know the URL of that page, if they enabled the SEF of WHMCS URLs. o.O

  • @Licensecart we gain around 10 customers for every customer we permanently lose in a time period of 3 months. Most customers that leave .. come back to us at a later time, usually a few months, to purchase a new service. We're a few thousand customers strong and still growing.

    You guys are continuing to give us free advertising. It's evident that if we didn't have satisfied customers we wouldn't still be alive and wouldn't be able to give the deals that we do.

    These types of threads actually bring us business. I've had a customer tell me over the phone they read one of these, visited our site and decided to buy from us out of curiosity. Sometimes their curiosity leads to disappointment because we can't satisfy everyone, but most of the time their curiosity leads to satisfaction, which is what most of our customers are. Even Maarten has a few services with us, come on now guys.

    If you say so haha 10 for every 3, no proof of that is there? There seems to be a new thread every single day. Keep dreaming kid...

    You would always be alive, people love cheap and you offer poorly bad cheap service, and for deals because you get cheap CC servers.

    No maybe they found common sense and left you, wrote a nice bad review, and they lost a few dollars, don't worry you will die soon (Hopefully) just like BurstNET.

    It wasn't a publicity stunt, it was a legitimate low point because I thought it was all over due to the compromise. It wasn't all over, everything was feasible and we were able to get back up with the help of a lot of people, including @WebSearchingPro and @MarkTurner who helped greatly.

    Haven't you ever heard of the saying "Cry Wolf"? You are full of lies who... is going to believe you when it's true?

    Until the next time. Which won't be long. Then you can get the "I am deeply, truly, madly" sorry post ready.

    I have no doubt you are #winning out of this in many respects, you have gained/gaining a lot of clients however the price vs resource is the only way you are doing it. Far too many customers on each node.

    The type of clients you are getting are shall we say in the majority poor English speakers who tend to abuse more which causes node issues as we often see. But you can beat them down using the "If you can't speak good English, we won't help you and don't care about your issues".

    You are running nothing more than a house of cards, and the wind is not blowing in your favor, it never has.

    Sensible clients won't go near you, many providers are more than likely happy because you are taking the lions share of the abusers.

    The whole warranty with all your money back reeks of desperation. If you were that sure of yourself then you would not need something like that. But I hope most of your clients appreciate that you will always find an excuse never to repay. One false promise after another.

    I doubt you even remember how to tell the truth about anything.

  • So guys, you do realize that this thread (and many others) further provides free advertising for GreenValueHost / Jon ; and you can say what you want, they will always continue to get customers due to their price point alone.

    Many people here on LET don't even care if the server works, they'll just purchase it and run a benchmark on it; or if it's for HitLeap, they really really don't care how it works; they just want the fake hits to come through.


    We are now price matching some of GVH's plans (must be a KVM plan, and must be a monthly price. Offers count, but you must prove that you are an existing customer with a paid account (screenshot of the invoice suffices, although doesn't always show the exact specifications.)

    If you want to see less GVH threads, give the customers an alternative.

    also if it means giving them exposure to those who cant read/make the smart choice or those who are going to abuse by all means promote on. A node full of abusers on gvh is better than abusers on other legit providers. (itll help weed out the garbage and jonny boy can farm them all)

    but the kind of people it would deter (i.e. those looking for stable/mission critical/reliable services) will already be using something like Linode, FutureHosting or EDIS (or LET top 10 providers).

    The kind of people who want a cheap VPS to play around with, use for non-important stuff probably don't care.

    CPU is way too weak for monster node. For density that you are planning on 18TB storage and 256 gb ram I would suggest quad processors. That is friendly advice.

    I already did it is called http://catalysthost.com/

    They offer great service, they don't lie to my face. They always have a happy face. Their servers are never oversold to an extreme where a simple php script causes over 100load, like in your case.

    The funny thing is when I need to put a ticket in it usually is solved within 1 hour or less and they actually SOLVE IT.
