    Is it normal that I have been waiting for 4 days to have it set up for me? I mean hostwinds are proposing that they activate it in less than 24 hours after order...

    I've had to wait a week to setup my dedicated server that I ordered before with someone else.

    Send them a support ticket, keep poking them gently until the get it up and running for you :)

    I like the "keep poking them gently until the get it up and running for you [​IMG]" part. Made me laugh.

    Yeah, I am poking them as you say :) Yesterday they have said that it will be up and running today's morning, but still inactive :p

    Really excited to finally have the epic combo of GSA, CB, DS, cool private proxies and link indexing service. Can't wait to start scraping target lists and ranking those videos :)

    No it is not normal. It takes a few hours to get a standard working server from Leaseweb and similar companies

    Dedicated server usually takes 1-4 business days to be ready.

    Depends on company to company. Online.net offer in 3 days, liquidweb 2-3 standard business days and so on.

    If hostwinds stated 24 hours then they should have deliver it on time.

    You answered your own question. If they tell you that they will set it up within 24 hours it is not normal. You should contact them. Although what companies normally say is often not the same as what they normally do :)

    Yeah... Their ignorance is starting to piss me off... Every day the same shit - we will complete it soon blah blah blah

    Almost 2 weeks of waiting and still not done. Should I ask them for a refund ? I think that it would take much less time just to take money back and order somewhere else + it would be cheaper.
