    • @TimboJones said: I thought it was universally understood around the world selling your sister (or buying) is a pretty scummy thing (hear about this from other Canadians visiting Cuba) and automatically makes you a piece of shit. Sure, say it once as a joke, say it 50 times and you're a piece of shit. It's creepy AF and just not funny. It's 2019, get the message.

      For once I agree with @TimboJones about something.

      The original "joke" dates from a few years ago, but it wasn't really a joke to begin with: it was uttered by an obstinate @cociu as part of an episode that got him (rightfully) temporarily banned. Probably few people on LET nowadays are even aware of that episode.

      In any case, the "joke" was in bad taste, and anyone with a sister (or daughter or mother) shouldn't imagine otherwise.

      our fault , the whmcs was set to close/delete the old tikets more than 10 days , we had some tikets opened with "when will be deployed" and stull like this, maybe your tiket was closed or deleted by fault. Any way apologise , you can open a new one and we will resolved asap.

      Why are you setting WHMCS to close/delete tickets after 10 days when you don’t even answer them within that timescale?

      Even if people are asking “when will be deployed“, you should still be answering them and not just deleting the ticket.

    • Yes, it's time to retire the sister meme. The novelty is gone too.

      Hope you get your support pipeline sorted soon, cociu.

      I still think you should have bet hard on publicly available KVM offers, at least in 2017.

      I remember I had a custom KVM from 2015. I had to give it up due to uptime issues.

      It sounds like all your issues now are owing to integration issues between 3rd party modules, kvm hypervisors, customer frontends.
      Those always need thorough beta testing before a public rolllout.

      Down with the sic_K_ness...
      The doctor might be going K-razy with the low end spirit. 😉

    • ehabehab Member

      only when cociu closes shop the sister thing will stop.... had enough of sisters ... never.

      • do not prepay > 1 year and check for reviews/support
      • only use monthly from a provider operating < 1 year 🍆
    • I agree about the issue of huge delays with cociu kvm offer.
      I was patient and not in need of it right away.
      Mine is working now.

      Because people get annoyed with responses like "I don't know" or told a date that comes and goes multiple times. So no answer is the answer.

      It indeed looks like that and smells ...

      That said actually I'd wish that HostSolutions became a more solid and reliable provider. It would be great to have a cheap (but reasonably solid) provider in eastern Europe and from what I see @cociu / HostSolutions has a good base (e.g. own DC, multiple 10+ Gb/s lines, etc).

      From what I know and see all that would be needed is cociu pushing sales a little less aggressively and putting more efforts into actually running the many VPS and dedis he sells and his operations (and support!) properly.

      That's why I don't smirk at HostSolutions. Each time they fail or f_ck up, everybody loses, HostSolution as well as customers. If however cociu turned his operations into something more reliable and with faster support everybody would win.

      I completely agree.

      I've defended @cociu/HS in the past, and I'm not attacking them now. At the same time, we have to be realistic.

      The good news is that there are people like @Bill and @uptime and @willie and others who are happy enough with @cociu's services, so not all is lost. :smile:

      @angstrom - maybe let's just say "lucky" ... and painfully aware that luck could run out at any moment. So, really not happy to see what seems to be yet another glib offer / cash grab followed by a long vacation leaving some significant number of people who (for whatever ill-advised reasons) actually trusted @cociu to deliver a working system and not just close tickets and go incommunicado for however long it was.

      It's just that I've been shitposting in this thread enough to maybe feel the very slightest sense of obligation to balance some of that trolling with a brief snapshot of my current experience with a different, earlier offer (the 1 GB openVZ from April) - which I was actually somewhat surprised to find is still up and running. Hoping it will stay that way.

      Hi Alexander! A little over two years ago I found myself looking for a VPS. A little searching on Google and I found an offer from him here on LET. Not much more to it than that.

    • jsgjsg Member

      What's the problem? I don't believe for a second that @Bill fell over LET about 2 years ago and right now he fell over it again and created an account just to praise HostSolutions.

      But: that's no reason to attack him. Most of us have seen weirder things happen.

      Also HostSolutions isn't all bad so I don't doubt that some HS customers are more or less happy.

      TL;DR Let's try to stay constructive.

      I actually had to go Google what sh*tposting is (forgive me - I'm 40 and have a rather full day to day life) but after learning I feel bad for contributing to it on this thread. My intentions were well meant but when it all boils down...
      Following the advice of @Ctc I'm going to refrain from feeding the trolls any more and bow out of this thread. @cociu I hope you keep doing what you're doing. Don't let these haters sway you.

    • jsgjsg Member

      @Bill said:

      I don't see HS haters here. What I see is people who are p_ssed off for good reasons like waiting for weeks for a ticket response or to get the product they payed for. And I see that quite a few of those people are not hating HS but actually stay calm or even constructive.

      Simple rule: When someone treats you very badly, e.g. by repeatedly breaking promises he made, or by not meeting even minimum professional standards, being angry is a perfectly normal reaction and not "hate".

      It's not HS' customers who need to improve. It's HS that needs to improve.

      And there we go. Did you even read this thread or is being 40 too much for you to do that?

      If you had you would see all the issue that people are having from not being able to use their service at all, only able to use a single template, have issues that are not being answered after weeks and so on.

      Feeding the trolls? Just GTFO.

      I come here to say hostsolution helped me get rid of porn addiction.

      Last year I bought a 1TB storage server from hostsolutions. I uploaded my entire porn collection to the server so I can watch them from everywhere at any time. The uploading speed was very slow, it took me about a month to finish uploading 600GB of porn videos. Though it sounds very silly, but back then I was really eager to set up my own "Pornflix".

      Things went pretty well and it worked flawlessly untill that night. I was having a really good time when suddenly the video paused. I soon figured out that my server just went offline. You can imagine how frustrated a person could be when he got interrupted in the middle of "something". I had to get up and open my computer. Then logged in the control panel and hit the reboot button.

      I SSHed into my server to check if everything was up and running, only to found out everything was wipe out. I was shocked. I double checked the folders and I was pretty sure everything was gone. What I was looking at was a freshly reinstalled server.

      All hopes are dashed to pieces. I was so frustrated that I didn't even finish my "bussiness" that night.

      After that accident, I suddenly became less and less interested in collecting porn videos. I was able to focus more on my really life, and every body around me start to noticed some little changes on me. Now I am not the man I used to be. It was hostsolutions that helped me get rid of my porn addiction. Hostsolutions really cares about me. They taught me a good lession: my porn collection doesn't really matter that much to me.

      Serioursly, people should stop complaining about hostsolutions' crappy service quality and start realizing if you choose hostsolutions as your provider, your porn collection data probably doesn't really matter that much to you either.

    • @Kiwi83, thanks for sharing your story with PAA (Porn Addicts Anonymous). I think that we can all identify with the pain that you felt at the moment your porn collection was deleted by a simple reboot of your server at HS.

      Who would like to share their story next? Don't be shy, we're all in the same boat.

      Just shaking my head at how you think you would be an addict but didn't have local source as primary source and the cloud as the extra backup. Fucking latency and reliability, man!

      It means there is little chance of any innocent intruder/burglar or curious partner alighting and being ambushed and traumatized by the sight of at least 600 porn DVDs. Thats a shitload of DVDs.
      The poster is sensitive to the distress his porn stash might inflict on innocent parties. Of course if you go poking around his mobile phone or laptop then serves you right for being nosy.

      Looks like it. Getting Cloudflare errors instead of their website, and the VPS is clearly having network problems.

      Yes, IPs under ddos. Dedi server down as well.

    • Cociu said he had some voxility Anti-DDOS. I don’t know why people target poor cociu, he sold me 1 TB storage VPS for like 20$/year after 50% extra credit and summer storage discount. It costs me more for electricity for 1 year for old laptop on idle.

      I ordered and paid for my server on 14. of July. Since the automatic payment detection with paypal doesn't work I had to open a ticket that day.
      15. of July I get a response that the amount I paid a day before got credited to my account and I should order again. I do that and find a new invoice generated asking me to pay additional 0,20€ with PayPal. Payment detection doesnt work again and I have to create a ticket and ask for manual verification. This time the invoice manually is marked as paid and my VPS gets activated.
      On 16. July I open a ticket about only 2TB storage being avaible on a 6TB VPS. This ticket is closed unanswered after 10 days.
      On 25. July the fixed CentOS image becomes available, I install my server using centos and find it with the full 6TB capacity. Since I never used CentOS the VPS is now idle.
      On 30. July I try to install Debian/Ubuntu, but it doesnt work. All usage graphs are white, SSH doesnt work, ping doesnt work, reinstallation/reboot doesnt work. All errors point me to the fact my VPS has been deleted. On the same day I open a ticket about that.
      On 12. of August my ticket gets deleted (not closed) without notice, so I open a new one.
      On 13. of August I get a reply to specify which server I'm talking about (I have two 10€/year OVZ idlers with HS), even though I always select the appropriate server in the ticket creation form. I reply on the same day, mentioning its the 6TB KVM and the server IP. This ticket is unanswered until now, will likely get deleted again on the 23. August.

      @cociu please fix my server, please change the next billing date to the day my server works + 3 months. Ticket ID #552302
