    I subscribed to the poweruphosting linux ssd vps tier 3 plan and have had a really painful journey thus far. Their buildup at the start was so promising, I transfered all my important projects to them and in just the first month, I have had 7 major crashes all because of some random server mismanagement on their end.

    Have lost atleast 500$ of revenue because of their inefficiency at maintaining their linux servers !! Not to mention the hours trying to debug the crashes thinking it was something I had done on my server configuration.
    To top it off, they didn't even add the right configuration for what I paid and it was only after I realized that they fixed.

    Really depressed, waiting for the last 7 hours for them to fix another random crash in their server as I write this. My patience has been tested to the absolute limits and it kills me to have to reconfigure back with my previous provider whom i so acrimoniously deserted to save a few dollars.
    Poweruphosting, if you offer a product in hosting, please ensure the service and people monitoring/handling it are top brass or don't offer the service at all. Being a coder myself, I had patience with you not 1,2 or 3 - 7 times !!

    I am not the kind to rant in public, but I have tried everything in trying to plead with their support to prevent repeating the blunders that is causing my server to repeatedly freeze/crash/stop. And it happened once again.

    This is one last chance for the administrator of Poweruphosting to address this issue and promise me that things will be as I expect hereon, or I am never looking back.

    So sorry to hear that man, a big lesson here is never put all your eggs in one basket.

    You can try Hostwinds, they are also very good in term of high quality hosting.

    Right, i shifted all my domains from the stable digitalocean server to reconfigure everything from absolute scratch on powerup including private nameservers.
    Hoping against hope that it turns for the better atleast now, else it's 1 more day wasted in setting up my server again.
    :(
