So I posted a review on Amanah yesterday, and guess what? My free VPS with them was terminated just now :)

Moral of the story - Don't post anything that is less than positive about them (and I do not consider the review I had with them was really negative) if you want your free VPS. (You can read my post here: http://www.96mb.com/96mb-low-end-vps-review-part-51-amanah-tech-512mb-vps/)

And I guess a general note to the providers: Please do not consider your request for a VPS review is a request for "positive" VPS review by default, I will only speak what I see :)

**EDIT: **Screenshot added [img] http://imgur.com/RANHq [/img]

UPDATE: Turns out they have terminated all free VPS and need users to sign up again and provide backlink to them after 30 days, the termination has nothing to do with my review, apologies for making the assumptions.

    Are tinypic.com, imageshack.us and postimage.org too :( ?

    How can a company just 'expect' only positive reviews; what would the value of your review site be then?

    Just shows they have something to be afraid of. If a customer ever wrote a bad review about my services i would confront them and try and find a resolution not terminate them.

    Call it as you test it. You have so much VPS anyways.

  • Do you consider your review negative? Maybe my reading Engrish is worse than usual but I don't consider it negative, not great but not negative...

    Anything less than saying "Amanah is perfect" is probably negative to them :)

    They offered another free VPS service that was free forever, supposedly, but I guess it stops when you post a "negative" review :)

    Mine's terminated too. I'm not upset but an email in advance would've been nice.

    Edit: someone who was using their VPS for a production site and lost data would probably not buy from them in the future and tell their friends, so it seems like a bad idea to just drop them without notice.

    @giang said: I see that they was offering 1 month free VPS and you got 50 days uptime? :D

    It was one month free on the 512, but the 128 was a previous indefinitely free offer.

    I think they are mostly a dedi provider, VPS was more like a side-business for them and LEB was probably something they purely do for fun/experiment.

    Nope, the owner actually called me over the phone several times (I actually put my real phone number during registration, not some random local nightclub numbers) to ask me what he should do with the free services (I used the admin AT 96MB email to sign up with them so I guess he probably read through my blog) and the voice was definitely a middle-aged person...

    What are you saying in the review that's bad?

    Look's pretty good other than the response time but maybe they are in a completely different time zone?

    and Don't offer 24./7 support.

  • JackJack Member

    @jcaleb said: @Jack maybe the 45.5 MB/s IO

    I guess but I would find 45.5MB/s okay for a budget provider in RAID1 config however like he said the first package with them is $20 with $20 setup.

  • Did it sound like the creepy old guy from Family Guy?

  • 20+20 fee? Jesus christ, you can get a Kimsufi that's better performance, and stability of network than that, cheaper. too.

    As far as I know they are based in Toronto, so it means they should be living in the EST timezone.

    Does it say on the emails about 24/7 ?

    I found out that 24/7 for the price we offer products isn't possible.

    I mean most tickets get 10 minute response times.

    unless you submit at like 3AM UK time haha.

    I don't think they offer 24x7:

    Business Hours : Billing & Sales Monday-Friday 8am-5pm (UTC-05:00) Eastern Time (US & Canada) Servers Deliveries Monday-Friday 8am-5pm (UTC-05:00) Eastern Time (US & Canada) Standard Support Monday-Friday 8am-5pm (UTC-05:00) Eastern Time (US & Canada) Emergency Support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

    See, that is the kind of things that I really hope the provider could come forward and tell me about it. I'll update my review in a bit.

    Sure, although it has been a while since I last updated my phone number with my Hostigation account and I have changed my phone number several times since then, so I can't guarantee if my local cellphone company has decided to give one of my previous numbers to some night clubs :) Lemme know if you find something interesting :)

    @Jack said: And you submitted at 6PM?

    Correct, so it make sense on the support issue now, that's why I will update my review to reflect that part, I did not see it previously so my apologies about that.

    And that's why I hope, in general, the provider could email me/comment on the review when I said something wrong. 96MB is a one-man shop so I do miss things/make mistakes once a while :)

    Post updated to reflect that they do not offer 24x7 support, apologies for the error.

    @Randy It was a honest mistake as I have no incentive to "troll" any provider, Amanah could always email me/call me/comment on the review to clarify this rather than terminate my VPS (and possibly others') :)

  • yomeroyomero Member

    Wow! All are over may be?

    Anyway, if was your review. I don't see any good reason to terminate it. Seems to be a good VPS after all the numbers IMHO.

    You must have made them angry at everyone. I'm terminated as well (the free plan from March) :(
