    Ew, I never tried of them before, get some reference from my friends... :D Well, nevermind, at least no one suggest for burst.net here... :D

    That's right. Saw many reviews about them on WHT.

    @Rikimaru90 said: burst.net

    Actually I will suggest burstnet. Specially, if you are from the states and can make phone calls, they aren't that bad. Most of my tickets were answered with in an hour when I used to have VPS with them.

    On my side - sicne I have a VPS, 1 year now, not a signle problem that needed a ticket. Something I can not say for LEB providers I've been with.

    Let me guess... 1 month free with only 1 USD setup fee and phone verification? I already found about their bad networks, but hey, maybe just my "luck"...

    Bigger the size, the more you will see bad review. This is because they have a huge clientbase and most of their clients are linux noobs and first time shared host to vps switchers who doesn't have a damn idea about what to do and think they will receive the same type of support like their shared host was offering and they will have some nice pointy cliky interface.

    People fail to realize that, budget vps are for those who knows what they are doing. If you require hand holding, Liquidweb, wirerdtree and knownhost is there.

    They claim they are not related.

  • @Rikimaru90 said: Let me guess... 1 month free with only 1 USD setup fee and phone verification?

    I never got any phone verification :P

    I tried them out, there was a disk f*ckup after a few days. Support was rubbish. They tried to charge me for a os reinstall. I told them to **** off :)

    6 VPS for a owncloud setup, 2 on each location, 2 vps for dns hosting and 1 for my personal blog. Almost 99.99% network uptime, great and friendly support. No herp derp replies with herp derp BS.

  • @fly said: gorillaserver

    Saw that and still considering :P Thanks your suggestion.

  • @Taz_NinjaHawk said: Bigger the size, the more you will see bad review.

    Could be... But never seen some bad review about singlehop or softlayer more than burst.net... But hey, really, maybe just my "luck"..

    @fly said: gorillaserver, the budget side of webnx

    Never heard of them before, reseller of webnx? Or side company? Webnx have a good quality (in my side), better search about gorillaserver now...

  • @Alex_LiquidHost said: They claim they are not related.

    Is it? Many people claim that they are the child company of WebNX.

    Not really sure about this though.

    Those who use singlehop or softlayer pays 3-10 time more than what they are paying burstnet, thus they receive premium support, faster response time and hand holders. Also forgot where I read this but, the more a person pays for his/her hosting, the less chance he/she will open many ticket. As most of them has the money available to spend on serveradmin, management and so forth. It is the 2$ customer who thinks they should get the world for 2$. (I blame @miTgiB , @Francisco and @kujoe for this)

  • @Taz_NinjaHawk said: As most of them has the money available to spend on serveradmin, management and so forth.

    I agree with this. If a budget provider don't have enough manpower, the support they provide will not be as good.

    Hey, calm down, man... Why are you so mad about it? I mentions singlehop and softlayer because they have their facility in west coast of USA (since this discussion is about LA dedicated servers, I'm trying to focusing). We all know a lot of company which not have facility in west coast of USA but have more cheap price and better quality than burst.net... We just trying to help @waynelim14 to find a good dedicated server provider...

    Anyway, @waynelim14, ever heard of securedservers? Maybe can be a solution...

  • @Taz_NinjaHawk you are on a roll..!

  • @Rikimaru90 said: Anyway, @waynelim14, ever heard of securedservers? Maybe can be a solution...

    Yeah heard of that before. Trying to see which one fits me best :P Thanks though.

  • @Rikimaru90 said: securedservers

    Had issues with Network up until a few months back.

    I think it was June? they had an overhaul on the network and when I used them it seemed decent.

    Well, have a friend complaining about their setup (partition or something like that)...

    @Rikimaru90 The reason I am mad is because people do not like to think from providers point of view. You were also not comparing Apple to Apple.

    A server, that costs 150$/mo on burstnet cost almost 600$/mo on singlehop/softlayer. When you signup for a provider who mainly targets budget users and don't need promotion to put those price down, you will have to cut something. Either save money and sacrifice support or sacrifice money and save on support.

  • @Taz_NinjaHawk said: It is the 2$ customer who thinks they should get the world for 2$.

    I've been trying to cut back on the hand holding. For instance, today I answered 4 questions with 4 links to KB articles already answering the questions.

    After I poked and poked at Singlehop they gave me the best quote out of anyone I could find.

    I don't think Tim helps , He'll give you information but he wont do it for you.

    SingleHop changed their business model to target bigger businesses but that also comes with great team of support. But yes prices have risen since we last used them quite massively.

    Depends how bored I am or what's on TV, and if you paid for cPanel, all bets are off, you'll wonder how managed service could keep up.

    I don't want it 'cheap'

    I want to know someone will be there when I need my service online oh yea Burst's which take hours to reply.

    You are also paying for an SLA at Singlehop.

  • @Rikimaru90 said: never seen some bad review about singlehop or softlayer more than burst.net

    i had dedi with burst.net long back, never had any serious issues. I'm not sure singlehop existed at that time but softlayer i dont remember but should have been way too expensive. At the same time i had premium server with fastservers also and i thought i'll use burstNet dedi for hosting the economy clients since i expected upto 95% uptime(after hearing all stories). But i had 98-99% uptime for burstNet, and support tickets were also resolved in max 24hrs. currently, i have 2 VPS with burst.net in 2 locations and both are doing fine.

  • @Jack said: I don't want it 'cheap'

    guys can you stick to what OP wants/budget .. :P

    Thanked by 2Jack Rikimaru90
  • I have services with both GorillaServers and WebNX. I have no complaints about either at all.

    If you keep an eye on WHT GorillaServers post deals there with coupon codes very often so you can get some pretty good deals. WebNX will do custom setups as well if you want special hardware configurations, I presume GorillaServers would as well.

    I think BurstNET is good, my first VPS with them took about a week to complete the order, the second one was just about an hour :D These two VPS didn't have any issue till now, 1 Budget and 1 Xen.

    Wrong. We offer Dedicated Servers in LA for over a year and a half now! ;-)
