    I bought their VPS, ran for like 10 days. No issues with the quality. I have used their VPS for the same purpose in the past without any issues. Out of the blue they suspended my VPS.

    When I asked on the support chat they told me they have sent abuse complaints on my email and I need to reply to each and everyone of them.

    Now a new abuse complaint was logged for every 1 out of 100 links I built using GSA. Long story short, I don't have time to reply to their numerous abuse complaints. It will take me the whole fucking day.

    Long story short: Don't use Hostwinds for any of your SEO software. Not unless you are planning to use tons of private proxies. I paid for the whole month, only got 10 days worth of action. Obviously it violates their TOS in some way or the other, so I did not worry about creating a refund ticket or anything.

    Just stay away from hostwinds if you are thinking about running something like GSA SER on it.

    Interesting. Not sure if you used proxies, but probably it's the case, but you can't let ser run without proxies. Most providers will suspend/email you to solve the ip leak. I've had issues, too, with another provider, but it was due to my proxy settings.

    Dude you can't expect to run gsa on the vps IP and the provider to be ok with it.

    You need to use proxies its like $1 proxy, or use proxy scraper.

    Well I had 10 private proxies. Completely private. I set them up with my own hands. There was some downtime, I was upgrading the linux distro for the proxies, that must have been the cause of IP leak.
    I am not blaming Hostwinds, I was completely satisfied with the quality of the VPS. Obviously I am the one who created this situation by building links in a very huge quantity.

    My only rant would be that I have to reply to so many emails, to get my VPS back.

    Why not talk to them instead of a bunch of people looking for freelance work?
