  • I would gladly get one because price and specs are looking good but

    up/down usage

    this is so much undefined, it can be used for anything

    payment methods

    since there is no paypal, I would go with crypto
    since there are no crypto payments, I won't go with anything
    sadly I'm not using CC beside trusted services on rare occasions, it takes time to gain trust as @xxsl mentioned

  • That's my experience:

    • The service was suspended without any warning for hight bandwidth usage
    • I ask sorry because the previous day I download a lot of data (something like 40gb in 6hrs) and I recognize the mistake (unlimited bandwidth btw)
    • I just reboot the vps and after 4/5h I found my service again suspended
    • No refund..... The product was used for 10 days

    40gb in 6hrs isnt much, its actually very little
    especially when advertised as 1Gbps Shared Unlimited
    on such VPS'es I sometimes push like 40gb in 15mins, its still not huge
    what are your overall bandwidth stats? like in month or something
    I imagine if its below 5-10TB, provider is closest to scam with his advertisements

    40gb in 6 hours then get banned?! and it is on an "unlimited plan"!

    I just imagine that if provider is using one 4/5G modem with a SIM card inside as their upstream for all the vps :p otherwise I can not find a reason for being suspended by using so little traffic.

    Hope @balhost could explain this well

    I should say if your service could not afford customer using 40gb in 6 hours (avg 1.8mb/s) , then you should write it clearly on your ad/websites with that, and with maybe such text: "anyone who using over 40gb in 6 hours will be limited to 128kb/s" ;)

    Secretly ban/suspend/stop customer's server is an even more horrible idea than this

    Thanked by 1yoursunny
  • Do you accept crypto?

  • If my calculations are correct 40gb in 6 hours is a constant 15 Mbps. I've never heard of any provider who had an issue with that kind of usage on a shared 1 Gbps uplink, in and of itself.

    Turkey is rare location, so I bought one. I should say their network is good, at least in most of time.

    As you're a new business, here just my little suggestions:

    1) PayPal support. Running small/new business without Paypal but ask entering credit card number make customers feel unsafe in most time.

    2) Clarify the exact traffic instead of using unlimited if your total bandwidth is not so wide, otherwise terminating customers' accounts suddenly will make us keep worrying which leads to leaving away from your business.

    3) Repect customers' privacy

    In @KONAK 's situation, Product was used to share Leaked films and was using continiously upload/download. As we writed on our post and TOS. There is nothing wrong here to suspend product. These rules must be read before purchasing the product.

    @balhost
    Could you please describe how do you know he share *** Leaked films***?

    Sniffing on customers traffic or DNS requests are not a good sign for a mature business, if you want to do it well, try your best to repect and protect customers' privacy, that will bring you peoples TRUST.

    1) Due PayPal is not available on Turkey, Because of that sadly we can't accept paypal payments. But We Use PayTR, PayTR is a wide known payment company, you can find information about it from internet easily, and We do not store any of card or payment details on our own.

    2) We are giving 1Gbps shared port and like every company We have rules it writes on post and TOS too, We will make a update about this to be more descriptive

    3) We care our customers privacy as much as you do, We do not dig any information about our customers services, in situation you mentioned, We just entered ip on browser and saw what we can see, It was a public service, so everyone can see there is such a service. Normally, we ask our customers from ticket to clarify which usage made on server.

    Friendly Regards.

    Yes, there is unlimted bandwidth but as we writed on our post there is restrictions about it too, As we writed shared, there is rules that must be applied. in @AmiilcareMuller's situation We have warned with a suspension because bandwidth usage was too much. (We will not provide any data about this for privacy) That harms our network. After warning, he kindly said that its his fault and will fix it and We reopened server immediately. After a while situation occured again and as we warned we suspended product again.

    Please post a message if you have any questions about this, We would like to answer your questons.

    Regards.

    I recommend you clarify the clear FUP to make every customer know exactly how much traffic and bandwidth they can use, otherwise everyone who buy your service will keep being worried about blamed by you (or asked privacy sensitive questions by you from ticket as you said).
    If your total bandwidth is not wide, limit every vps to a proper speed and clarify it on ads/website instead of letting it go first and then blame/ban/suspend/stop everybody.

    So what you do currently lead to this situation, making customer think like this =>

    We buy your service, but we are afraid of using it, even during our sleepping time, we keep worried about it using traffic, then you may blame/ban/suspend/stop us by a hidden rule.

    Also I should suggest you learn to "shape your bandwidth", there are many tools doing this such as tc, every vps provider do this, ban/suspend/stop customer's server is so rude and unprofessional from my point of view.

    Also I really hope you can do Turkey business well, personally I collect rare location vps, and your service is affordable, and also I like Turkey kebab very much :)

    For a bonus, I'm glad to provide you an IPv6 allocation for free and life time if you can make IPv6 working and free of charge attached to everybody's vps later.

    Thank you for your interest, We already have our IPv6 Class and We make the necessary preparations in the background for IPv6 allocation on servers, We will provide free IPv6 for servers upon request in a short time :)

    A quick benchmark

    Intro: I almost gave up because it's just incredible how hard it is for a normal person to transfer money from a EU bank to Turkey. Plus it took about a full week, yuck (bloody banksters).
    But BalHost's support was very friendly, helpful, and patient. They even mounted a (FreeBSD) ISO for me. Kudos!

    But still, I strongly advise BalHost to offer wide-spread and common options like credit card, Paypal.

    Once I had my VPS the whole matter turned into a pleasant experience. SSH connections are established quite quickly and the machine feels speedy (certainly for its class and price) and the panel mostly is like what one is used to. Except for one (imo) not minor point: there seems to be no VNC access (at least not in the panel).

    Now the results, based on about 40 runs.

    I was a bit surprised to the single core result because, frankly, that's Xeon v2 territory, not v4/DDR4, and suggests too many users per core (but still not 'bloody oversold!' territory). All the other numbers are OK, even decent and show typical low-clock Xeon v4 results. The relatively low crypto results are normal.

    Normally I'd say meeh, but for that price I actually find the result really decent. The only thing to worry about is some single-digit 'min' numbers and the high spread. As for 'NVMe' (I read that in the OP), @balhost might be better off to leave that out. For an SSD result though it's OK and even really decent when considering the price.

    Finally, the network

    Sorry, but the short version of how I read that is "north-american customers stay away!", and that's still kind because I ignore other large region of the world this server has no or very poor connectivity to.
    For me, in Europe, it's halfway OK, considering the price, but even here are questions, like e.g. "Huh? Frankfurt shows reasonable to decent results but Amsterdam shows seriously poor results?".

    Summary: if BalHost manages to get its connectivity to a decent or even just halfway reasonable level, they might become a very attractive provider. After all, the processor/memory performance is better than what many, if not most super-cheap competitors offer, the disk performance is decent and their support is medium response time (15 min to a couple of hours) and really friendly, and their price is almost unbeatable. I mean, where do you get a decent VPS with a kind of large memory, a decent, relatively large SSD, and unlimited traffic with speeds north of 100 Mb/s? That would be a really attractive offer - IF their connectivity was halfway reasonable!

    As far as I'm concerned, I'll keep my eyes focused on potential connectivity improvements. If they come, keeping (and paying in advance for a year) is a no-brainer because besides their connectivity issues that's a very attractive offer for about $25/year.

    So, BalHost, please hurry and have a serious word with your upstream guys!

    The quality is good, but your hidden bandwidth rules still worry me a lot.
    I mean after see many others got banned suddenly (like that 40gb in 6hours guy), it's hard for me to be calm.

    Could you please clarify the actual bandwidth limit? That also helps your side keeps abusers away.

    To clarify the bandwidth limit here is the rules;

    • There is no actual bandwidth limit on "TB", you can use as much as you want when you apply the rules.

    • Servers can not be used as a Storage Server, Up/Down server Serving Files etc. Like using Upload and Download 70/70 Continiously

    • Using as Public Proxies or VPN (Personal VPN is not prohibited)

    İmportant point on here is, Simply You can't use bandwidth continiously like 50/50, Most use cases Proxy , VPN on this situation. If you want to use like this you can ask for dedicated bandwidth from us.

    Because we are trying to make our prices affordable and cheap, this is how it works.

    Please write us a message if you have any questions about this.

    As We writed on our post before too, We made a little price increase on our services approxmately two months ago (July 19). In order not to be disturb our customers by this situation, we have kept the prices of the existing services fixed for a certain period of time. Because of costs We made increase to all existing services, But don't Worry, This prices will stay stable for a long time period like this.

    Hello

    I am not convinced. If the bandwidth is unlimited, I would like to use 100gb in one day and 100mb in another day. I have not seen any provider that does this. I saw that 1TB per month after that port from 1G to 50M or less, but the limit is the first day!!!! I wanted to order but now I'm having doubts with your secret rules. If you guarantee that I will use at least 1TB per month without limits?
    Regards
