    I've read a few good things about these guys on here, and also a few bad. Just want to let you guys know that the good comments are false, while the bad ones are 100% telling the truth.

    Don't let the professional look of the company fool you. They are a bunch of amateurs running a very bad operation.

    I was paying them about $55 per month for a VPS with upgraded RAM and it still was unable to run just GSA and captcha sniper.

    Their support is only good at sending you smart arse replies, that do little to help you. If you do get a reply other than a smart arse comment it'll just be to incorrectly state that they have fixed the problem, and when you reply to them saying they haven't they'll just ignore it and send you a message saying the ticket is closed, meaning you have to start all over again.

    The only positive I see about their service is that you keep your proxies fresh and never get reported for any kind of spamming - because you can never connect and it's always offline!

    So anyone out there looking for a VPS, don't waste your time or $$$ with these muppets.

    i am running GSA + captcha sniper on their 10$ per month VPS - works fine for me.
    only downside is - you have to use proxies.

    thats too bad for you man but maybe you got unlucky?

    i have never had a problem and when i wanted to ask some really stupid questions they answered me politely.

    guess you were unlucky but who knows.

    aw and the tickets always close by default you can always re open the same ticket so you wont have to start all over again.

    hope this helps

    I have been running GSA SER + Captcha sniper on the 2GB RAM plan for more than 6 months. I run it at 300 threads and never face any problem. Where is your Datacenter - US or Germany? What kind of problem are you facing while running GSA?

    Yeah, I had issues with berman before. I switched to poweruphosting two months ago. It's more expensive, but the support and performance is excellent.

    Avoid Bermanhosting guys. They stealed me 2 months of VPS service. At the begining all was running fine until one day I could not connect to my VPS anymore!!! I asked Sven several times what happened to my VPS and he never bodered to answer me back... I lost 2 months payment. So frustrated with this sucker ! I tried a paypal refund but it was already too late (+45days). From my experience I can only advise to avoid them !!!

    I thought Sven was affiliated with/recommended Powerup Hosting - not Berman hosting? Might this be the reason why he never responded to you?

    They sucked big time but you pay for what you get. Amazon ec2 we can run 10 times the tools there for twice the cost.

    What plan are you using on Amazon ec2 or what do you recommend to run a set of SEO tools?

    Yeah.. fuck Bermanhosting.
    I had a very bad experience with them.

    Now I switched to some other BETTER VPS. Fuck BermanHosting. I would warn others to AVOID. It's damn slow and their support sucks donkey balls.

    Too sorry for them, been running cheap vps with them for a long time, I dropped them since they starting messing up with the vm's resources so I could not even open the windows start button of my vps with nothing running.

    Different Sven, your thinking of GSA SER Sven, whereas there is another Sven over at Bermanhosting.

    Personally, i've never had an issue with Bermanhosting and i've been with them for months. Maybe the OP was just unlucky.

    It is actually increasingly difficult to provide cheap VPS services these days as 1 server can only host so many virtual machines especially Windows Servers as they use so much resources. You would need a very powerful cloud setup to provide services so cheap for virtual server hosting and it costs a lot of money to maintain. So some of these hosts who provide services so cheap are cramming as many virtual servers as they can on their servers which gives you the client a horrible experience.

    I am the owner of unixchosting.com who happen to have the same prices as berman hosting and we have been around much longer than they have. Many things have been copied from us even our slogan..."VPS Hosting Simplified".

    The bad reviews I am seeing about them is nowhere near to anything I have ever encountered. I highly recommend you research a company before you decide to signup for their service as this could decide weather you will host your services with that company or not. It will also save you from the frustration of dealing with that type of hassle. Focus on real reviews rather than cheap prices. That is the advise i give to those seeking VPS Hosting services at economical prices. Good service is better than cheap prices...

    I had been using them for more than a year now. There had been issues in the past too but, now they have crossed the limit.
    I am running my VPS on 2GB RAM and it is taking me around 5-10 minutes to log in. I am not able to log into my VPS for past one and a half day. This has happened in the past too but this time around they are not even answering their support tickets. On top of that, I am trying to reset my user area password but I never got any email from their system with my new password.

    It seems they are all fu**ed up and are not interested in offering good service/support.
    I had always been writing good reviews about them because they were offering good service at cheap price but now I am really pissed with them.
    This is my last week with them. Will not be using them any more.
    Too bad that they are ready to lose old customers.

    I am using berman for almost 8 mothns and never ever had single problem. When I was noob and I got my IP blacklisted I received new IP in some hours. VPS is really fast. I dont understand how u can have such problems. My support ticket was answered fast too. Internet speed is god like.

    Im running GSA + GSA CB and other stuff. Everything is like it should be.
