xsserver driving me insane - any other BH friendly VPS?

    Over the past 2 weeks, Xsserver has gone down 4 times for up to 1 day at a time, leading to lost money and more valuable time down the drain. Their datacenter is fucking up. Each network 'crash' requires a reboot (after xsserver takes 12-24 hours to fix the problem), so I can't automatically ride the problem out. I need to run my tools 24/7 and xsserver is fast becoming a non-viable option.

    Does anyone know of any VPS providers that are BH friendly. Not talking illegal stuff e.g. email spam, just the usual - SB, Xrumer etc.?

    It's going to take a while, some time and money to pack up my stuff and leave but it's fast becoming intolerable on xsserver right now.

    P.S. Thanks xsserver, after being a loyal customer for 1 1/2 years you guys really don't give a shit, cos at the end of the day I pay for it, not you. No compensation offered even after it's happened 4 times.

    Check the BST section here on BHW for a VPS. We have a control panel so no waiting on support for a reboot.

    Hope that helps you! ;)

    Well as you need reliability i could recommand a dedicated server, you would get rid of the virtualization layer which could be badly handled sometime on the top of the network.

    Just run from them, worst hosting experience I've ever had. Also upgrading plans does not the solve issue from a VPS to a Dedi. Also P.S. if you bad mouth them on a forum they will not refund your money, so be careful.

    Lol, that's OK, they don't refund money anyway. My intention is not to badmouth them anyway -- in fact after a rocky start they have been very good and stable for around 8 months. But they have been having datacenter problems and I KNOW it's their network issues putting my VPS offline each time, and each time they say it's fixed permanently, but the same problems keep happening again.

    At the moment hostamus is too expensive for me. I need a quad core i5 or dual core i7, don't really care that much about RAM, 1gb is enough for me. 100 mbps port at least. I've been looking at blackboxrdp - any thoughts on them?

    I bought the VPS subscription and I will cancel it after 2 weeks. They have slow system, laggy and unstable servers. And after yesterday's accident they pissed me off:

    72 hours...WTF...i need stable 24/7! I don't expect any refund for this...I'll look for another VPS as well.

    Has anyone experience with some Europe VPS ?

    Try HostMyDomainNow.com. Support is outstanding. VPS may be a bit pricey, but worth every penny. Good luck. dgp

    Little more expensive, but I don't deal with the BS of crashing etc.

    I have one windows vps on xserver working almost 24/7 last 8 months and so far it is fine. Also the support respond to me for 5-10 min. But yea, its a little bit slow.
