    FAQ:

    Q: Are There any resource limits of any kind on these plans?
    A: No, Please try and break our servers :), the only activities that can result in rate limiting, or asking to be moved to a dedicated server are Coin mining.

    Q: Where are these servers located?
    A: Dallas Texas

    Q: Can these servers be upgraded?
    A: Yes! You can upgrade your VPS at any time with 0 downtime. So if you need more power you are just 1 click away

    Q: What kind of CPU's do these servers have?
    A: We run only the latest model Intel Xeon Processors, we do not run any substandard CPU's such as the i7 series like most of our competitors

    Q: How many IP's do I get?
    A: Each server is given 1 IP to start, however you can add additional IP's easily.

    Q: What is the difference between budget and premium VPS's?
    A: Our budget VPS's use OpenVZ virtualization, which is a OS-level virtualization. The premium VPS's use KVM virtualization which is hardware based and provides a fully isolated linux kernel. They are generally more stable, and offer much greater security of resources. When you buy a Linux VPS from most providers and they don't talk about the virtualization type, then it is most likely openVZ as openVZ allows for overselling, and is much more economical for the host.

    Q: Can I get cPanel
    A: Yes, we will install and setup cPanel and your nameservers. So if you have never used a VPS before, this is the perfect way to transition from shared hosting to a VPS. We do all the work, we will even transfer your website for free.


    Q: How fast are the hard drives?
    A: We use only the highest quality Western Digital Enterprise Grade Hard Drives, they are a lot more expensive than the desktop grade versions, but the extra performance is worth it.

    Q: Do you have SSD Plans Available?
    A: We are currently beta testing our new SSD VPS offerings, we invite you to try it out. Please open a ticket or live chat, and one of our technicians will help get you setup. Please note these servers are NOT free, and you will get much less disk space than in the plans offered above.

    One of the best support service ever!!
    okay now lemme share my case here :
    well first i had problem with their servers... vps... not of quality but i wasnt able to get them to work as i wished the use of their.. it is the cheapest budget vps they have...
    well i honestly did not expected the support to be able to help me.. to that extent that i wanted for free... well hell even i wouldnt have done that much.. so i talked to support and asked if i was eligible for refund
    but damn man they guys made it through the best support ever
    from complete rebuilding to zpanel installation to my smtp setup to email account setup everything i wanted they support did it for me and that too within few hours!!!
    and now everything is running smooth for me and at its best!!
    am definaitly happy with their service and vps seems to be doing good job too!!
    i was about to leave their service but hell now i am probably their fulltime long term customer! :)
    i would say but one thing

    RECOMMENDED

    their support is nice
    their server does their job and i am happy :)
    and hell the prices are cool too

    DO NOT BUY FROM HOSTWINDS
    i had good experience in hostwinds in past but now they have disappointed me for mere 7$
    so here is it
    last time few weeks back when i contacted support.. i was buying new ip .. so when i enquired about my new ip being fresh for cpanel trial
    support told me that extra ip are clean ip not fresh but clean
    only new ips that come with new vps are fresh ips
    so today i went on and bought a new vps...
    within few mins it was setuped.. so i tried cpanel.. but it wasnt a fresh ip.. have been used multiple times on cpanel before
    so i contacted support asking for a fresh ip as i have to try out my somthing with cpanel if it dosnt work there wont be sense for me buying cpanel
    support denied my request.. i told them that i was told by their support that new vpses come with fresh ip and they still denied to help me with this
    so within like 1-2hours(due to delay in replies over support ticket it took 2 hours after buyng vps) when i confirmed they have finally denied to help me... i requested a refund and cancelation
    well i was clear from start of ticket that if this cant be helped that i haveno need of vps and would like refund and cancelation
    My request to refund was denied...
    within 2 hours of buying vps and not even using it i am being told that i am not eligible for refund
    this is their refund policy on frontend promtion contain
    "We want our clients to be successful, profitable and secure - and above all - completely satisfied with our service. If a client is not satisfied with their Hostwinds service and notify us within the first 60 days of opening their account, they will be given a full refund - Guaranteed."

    but inside it contains that its only for first order
    so basicaly if u buy a second vps .. they have full rights to fuck you over!
    shaddy and shitty as hell

    their support misguides you into buying things that costs more.. hell i cud have gotten this same ip with buying extra ip yet i bought a new vps just cuz i was misguided and now denied refund

    3 words review!
    DO NOT BUY

    This doesn't sound right, we would be more than happy to refund you, especially if it is the same day. The rule about only refunding the first product is to prevent coin miners from ordering 50 VPS's and requesting refunds on all of them at 59 days.


    Please shoot me a PM with your email address on file, and I will see to it that you get the full refund you deserve.
