    Personally have never tried them, but they appear to be decent.

    There's also Dacentec that may be of interest, that is if you're looking for low end servers.

  • I had a dedi there for more than a year. Fast ticket response the few times I needed it, very little downtime and generally a smooth ride.

    Too delayed responses from sales team, and most inquiries were ignored. I found @dacentec here and in other forums they were extremely fast in responding to inquiries, deploying the server and very friendly and easy to deal with.

  • @vaotam I can offer a 10% discount on anything from DataShack priced greater than or equal to $49. The discount applies to additional IP addresses too.

    DS support is hit and miss. Sometimes I'll get a series of super fast responses within minutes, other times it takes a lot longer. If they ignore your question, try repeating it in different words.

    Their prices are very low so I doubt they want to spend a lot of time in pre/sales negotiations. If you want cushy support, it generally comes with a price!

    More review please !

    The server I had with Datashack was awesome, delivery time was about 1 day (I ordered on a Sunday evening and got it Monday afternoon) and support was really quick, always replied with help in 2 to 8 minutes or so.

    With that said, I think Dacentec is the better deal right now and their support is also extremely good.

  • They're in Kansas so all servers come with premium Wizard of Oz connotations.

    Tried them about 12 months ago, the network was terrible, massive packet loss (50-60%) for hour long periods at a time, sometimes multiple times a day, and the support, well, those fuckers couldn't care less.

    Certainly don't recommend Datashack to anyone, for anything.
    Using them for production? Heh, thats a good joke, I'll write that one down..

    Its WholeSale internet, check my thread on them

    tl:dr, had to PP reverse them after server broke and support was "helpful".

    Stay as far away as you can

    I had to do a chargeback with the first server I ever got from them ~2 years ago after they deployed something different than I had ordered and refused to do a refund as per their terms... Left a bad taste in my mouth, but time has gone by so I'm trying to forgive and forget. Maybe history doesn't always repeat itself?

    Their addons (extra HDD, etc.) seem a bit pricey for the quality of hardware offered and the market they're in, but if you only need the default config, it may be worth a shot.

    Speaking of Datashack/Wholesale - did anyone else manage to order one of Wholesale's $10 servers they put up yesterday (there was also a $15 Quad)? They sold out quick, I got notified they were back in stock this morning so I quickly ordered one...says it's a Intel Core 2 Duo, 4GB RAM, 250GB Harddrive, 100mb unmetered, and 1 IP for $10/month. They aren't listed on their website anymore so I dunno if it was just limited stock or what.

    -edit- Just received my server...Looks like they gave me 5 IPv4 (instead of the 1 that was listed) and a Pentium(R) Dual-Core CPU E5300 @ 2.60GHz for $10/month - not bad :)
