Next time I see an offer to good to be true, I'm gonna stay clear, this one lasted for just over a week, cash in and close ?:

"Dear XXXXX

We are sorry to announce that we will no longer be providing VPS Servers.

As our terms of service state, full refund's will not be issued, however, if you ordered your server on or after Wednesday 5th September your account can be credited with 25% of the cost of your VPS (excluding addons). You must claim this credit by 9am GMT on Thursday 13 September.

If you have any more questions please open a VPS Support ticket - https://www.my.sentahosting.co.uk/submitticket.php?step=2&deptid=6.

PLEASE NOTE: Ticket responses may take a little while as we have a mass amount of ticket's to deal with at the moment. We are still providing Shared, Reseller and Shoutcast services and if you would like to sign up to one of these you will be given a 25% off for life discount.

VPS Servers will be terminated on Saturday 22nd September. We are very sorry for the inconvenience caused by this and we thank you for your business.

Regards, Senta Hosting"

    @liam said: I thought originally that fitvps was a hosting company by a child as here 'fit' means sexy in slang ;-)

    Haha, nice :) Didn't know about that meaning. Maybe we should emphasize on that - SexyVPS ;-)

  • This is the actual offer, i put the wrong one in the original post.

  • SimpleNodeSimpleNode Member, Provider

    1GB of RAM + 2GB burst for the equivalent of $12 USD?

    Heck, even we can match that price (and we're expensive by LEB standards)

    Why are you only offering a 25% credit if they ordered less then a week ago? 
    If I ordered less then a week ago I would think a full/prorated at least refund would be in order. And I see you're offering a 25% discount but in this post you're offering 30% off your reseller plans, so the customers who got hosed are getting a worse deal? 
    I would stay far away.

    I'm sure I'll get a WHT warning for posting flame in an offer thread but what a stupid company, I don't see where they get their balls.

    so? its your duty to refund everyone. i don't stand by my tos about the no refunds part when it comes to service being terminated/close down, that is a different story

  • 25% credit is stupid, if they cant do a real cash refund, then do a 100% credit refund.

  • SimpleNodeSimpleNode Member, Provider

    It's Ironic that their website says;

    In order to survive a website hosting company has to make a profit. Not all website hosting companies understand the market therefore they set their prices too cheap. When visting a hosting companies website you may find a deal that is too good to be true (amazing features, unlimited resources, cheap pricing).

    @sentahosting said I have been discussing with my colleague and we are now offering full refunds to VPS clients. We would like to make it clear that we are still providing all of our other services. We have only stopped providing VPS servers.

    See if you actually get it.

    Screenshot it and go start a thread on WHT and you'll likely get your money back. Credit != Refund

  • I'd like to know how they can offer all of that (referring to their shared hosting offer) including a free WHMCS license for £7/month.

    One to avoid I would say.

  • @MartinD said: WHMCS license for £7/month.

    nulled? who knows

  • InfinityInfinity Member, Provider

    @liam I thought you didn't know any 'slang'.

  • Just fyi such a TOS clause is most likely illegal and you could probably easily get your money back if you wanted to.

    Their VPS pricing seems to be reasnoable, how is this a "too good to be true" offer?

  • @nikc said: And now it came through to paypal :)

  • TazTaz Disabled

    @nikc that is not a too good to.be true deal. Check our current let offer, a lot cheaper for almost the same spec

    Time is good and also bad. Life is short and that is sad. Dont worry be happy thats my style. No matter what happens i won't lose my smile!

  • @Taz_NinjaHawk said: Check our current let offer, a lot cheaper for almost the same spec

    Is it UK based ?

  • TazTaz Disabled

    Then I believe httpzoom can do a lot better.

    Most people outside the UK. I only know it because I watched The Inbetweeners :P

    You can spam me with any yearly shared hosting deal.

    yes, httpzoom is great

  • do they offer gbit ?

    he will respond shortly. :) @httpzoom

  • CloudxtnyHostCloudxtnyHost Member, Provider

    Hey,

    We do not offer Gbit.

    In the UK that is extremely expensive and you'll normally find people who offer it are actually located in France or Holland.

  • @StormVZ Weird, nope still not working. I'm at work right now, so maybe this network is being blocked or something? It's showing a 403 forbidden message.

  • Forbidden / 500 ISE for me too.

  • @StormVZ Check your apache error logs, see what's causing it.

  • Works fine for me (Bright House Networks, 20/2 in Indianapolis).
