  • @Spirit said: Tickets, network related tickets.. started to expire without answers. That's often bad sign. They also abandoned otherwise in past active twitter updates

    I was waiting for someone to claim.

    I am next. Support is disappointing, and my VPS (the uber little 64MB) is almost useless because IO issues.

    I was using it just for some backups and some cronjobs.

    I think I will move my stuff and cancel asap.

    As far as I'm aware, Daimon is having some personal issues at the moment which may be slowing things down. I don't know much about it, but if he is having some personal issues, things should return to normal shortly..

    I've heard that he's been having personal issues too, but he sure is still there and around.

    I can give you the results of my dd test when it's finished (maybe next week) Hope this will not end up into another zombie host...

    With respect, why do so many of you jump to this sort of conclusion? I have had contact from Daimon's staff this week so I am led to believe that whatever this is, it's temporary.

    I got a little over 1073741824 bytes (1.1 GB) copied, 187.508 seconds, 5.7 MB/s, the VPS itself is actually running really well though, I didn't notice any difference until I saw this thread.

  • lol @Corey

    @djvdorp As an update, I got answers to my tickets, with "suppossedly" the problem solved. I feel it WORST AND WOOOOOOORST each day. So I think I will not care for this anymore. Moving some scripts and going out ¬_¬

    This remembers me to semoweb, support is a joke, or they think customers are dumb.

    Yes, and now my ticket is closed ¬_¬ Shame.

  • @ukhost: Is private torrenting allowed on your plans? Eg small downloads from private trackers, not piratebay and stuff.

    @djvdorp I highly doubt that their uplink (burstnet) allow anything close to that :) Beside that don't rely too much on this @ukhost appearance at LET. Try to get some response from host directly however DMB Hosting still seems like a ghost ship with abandoned servers / without proper support deparment.

    I can fee all you people's pain as I had to go through this the same way! In the end I hade to get my money back via PayPal and recieved it on last Friday! On the side note: He registred a domain for me and still not releasing it so I can move it to another registrar, so how can I get that domain back? as it is registred under my name, any help is much appreciated, thank you all.

  • I don't know, but two thing:

    • Continue spamming until they give you the auth code.
    • Use certificated registrars ¬_¬ I never will buy a domain from a VPS provider. Losing a domain is worst than losing a box.
  • @speedy007 there is a 60 day waiting period of the transfer of domains to different registrars. http://www.icann.org/en/transfers/policy-en.htm

    03 March 2012 will be the earliest that your domain can be transferred (if is the one I think it is)

    Not defending dmbhosting but any transfer request at this time would be denied under Icann's current policy

    You don't need to wait to get control over domain. DMBhosting is most likely only domain reseller not accredited registrar. To get control over domain check who's registrar and contact them. As long there's your mail address in domain whois it should not be any issue. However 60 days transfer ICANN rule still apply as @onepound said.

    Well, how much resources can need a DNS lol. Probably the zones are cached in ram.

  • @yomero said: Use certificated registrars ¬_¬ I never will buy a domain from a VPS provider. Losing a domain is worst than losing a box.

    +1 Never put all your eggs in one basket :) Domain registration is way to important to leave it to a middleman that also provides other services like VPS's. Even if it's a couple dollars more per year, not having to worry about it something else goes wrong with said providers services is invaluable.

  • @speedy007 one thing you can try is to contact internet.bs and see if they will push the domain into your own account on internet.bs. This can be done prior to the 60 day rule as remains with the initial registrar.

    The only issues you will encounter is validating you have rights to the domain and getting them to remove the domain from one of their resellers accounts (hardest part).

    You will need to explain that you have exhausted all avenues to contact their reseller.

  • My VPS has been good actually, got excellent I/O and network speed. However my question is if they are going to continue in the long term.

    At least you can get into yours, @Infinity. My VPS with them just lost conn... still pings, but no response on SSH.

    Thankfully, I keep regular backups, and it wasn't a vital service.

    It did take around 5 minutes to get into SSH. Most likely due to my location, which is pretty close to the DC. ~250 miles. I only have 1 site on it but it's still taken like 30 minutes and is still going.

    EDIT: Oh darn my internet connection, I just timed out and cannot get back in.

    I am at node "xen" (that's node name). It took around minute or so to get into SSH but now when I am in I can "su" between accounts relatively normal. I did one dd test (only one - I won't do it more to avoid additional HDD hammering) for LET informational purpose:

    dd if=/dev/zero of=test bs=64k count=16k conv=fdatasync && rm -rf test 16384+0 records in 16384+0 records out 1073741824 bytes (1.1 GB) copied, 313.068 s, 3.4 MB/s

    It's actually shame how relatively good host with decent business reputation turn into a crap again.

    @Spirit said: I am at node "xen" (that's node name).

    I think all the Xen users are on one node.

    Yeah, I really loved DMBhosting before all this happened. I know Daimon is having personal issues and stuff.. but still.
