Anybody with ChicagoVPS also experience high latency and unresponsiveness?
Hi all! First post here ...
I was recently offered a "promotional price" with ChicagoVPS, in order to get me to rent a server with them again (after switching to DigitalOcean). They offered me a 4GB RAM OpenVZ server, for only $6/month. Sound too good to be true right? Well, it seems it is.
After only a couple of days using the server, I started to experience horrible lag over SSH, sometimes not even being able to log in at all (connection refused, connection timed out etc.) I tried restarting the server via their web control panel, but even the control panel software couldn't connect to the server most of the time!
I opened multiple support tickets (each one ended with the problem apparently "resolved" but only for half an hour or so). They told me they were experiencing network problems on my node, or some other un-named issues. I'm starting to think their only real issue is chronic overselling.
Anybody else with ChicagoVPS and having similar problems? The last time I was with them they were actually decent, but now they just seem greedy, and willing to oversell horribly to make extra money.
EDIT: I just got a response from their support team now: "Your server does respond to SSH". Yeah, it does - after 20 seconds of waiting, and then 5 second delays between each command. Didn't you read what I said?! Sick of support staff that are barely qualified.
