LiquidHost – 2GB and 3GB special, annual plans in multiple locations in the US

Tags: , , , , , , , , Date/Time: January 11, 2014 @ 12:18 am, by Maarten Kossen

Alexander, from LiquidHost, has sent in four very nice offers across five locations in the USA! Not all offers are available in all locations, though. LiquidHost has been around since 2011 and Alexander tells me it will be registered as an LLC in Bulgaria in the first quarter of 2014. He also notes that additional staff are being hired to handle the support load, which is always a good thing. The servers LiquidHost uses are all equiped with fairly modern CPUs and RAID configurations. Most servers have RAID10 and the ones that do not have it, will get it soon. Tunneled IPv6 is available on request. LiquidHost gets pretty good feedback, but feel free to share your experiences with us here!

Liquid Solutions accept payments through Credit and Debit Cards via PayPal. They operate with a fairly strict non-refund policy. Their ToS allows fair use of their shared resources which are IO and CPU, so if you don’t go overboard you should be fine. Among their list of addons they have up to 5-10Gbit UDP and TCP flood protection on peaks for $3/month/IP, internal IP’s for complex setups and with traffic not being counted, free offsite backup available on request and “DNS services.” Anything illegal in the US is not allowed, as per their current Terms of Service.

      As long as it does not hammer the CPU and IO, it would be okey.

    My VM in Seattle went down for hours every week for two months or so, maybe it’s finally fixed, but support was unable to fix the dedicated server and failed to do what was needed (replace whatever hardware/software that was causing problems).

      I mean “support was unable to fix the physical node for those months”, and instead kept saying “oh hey, it’s just this one node, whatever!”.

    The link for “3GB Special” paid annually seems to be wrong. The correct link seems to be https://liquid-solutions.biz/clients/cart.php?a=add&pid=133

    ticketing/support is horribly slow, ignored setup notes, & their personal mail server(s) seem to be poorly configured.

    I sincerely apologize on the slow responses on some tickets. I’m doing my best. Also once the additional staff are hired, it will all get normalised.

    What are the specs of the servers? CPU drives etc?

    I just purchased a small VPS from them and two hours later the server is not online and my ticket has not been responded to. The SolusVM panel worked for a little but now appears to be broken (says “There seems to have been a slight problem with our database, please try again later.”). Beware.

    My 2GB special performed well for about 2 weeks.
    After that it became unusable.
    It is now running like a dog without any configuration change on my behalf.

    All I’m trying to is run a Tiny Tiny RSS server with about 5 subscribed feeds.

    It seems that I’ve been taken for a ride by signing up for a year and only getting 2 weeks of decent service.

    It seems to be running OK again.
    I don’t know if this is in response to my support ticket or not as I’ve not been contacted by Liquid.

      Hey sir, can you let me know your support ticket ID? I believe you should have gotten it answered by now.

      On the other side – this offer brought plenty of abusers. I am suspending them on daily basis. A fully automated system will be in place in a couple of days, to take care of abusers, causing extremely high load and violating the TOS.

Some notes on commenting on LowEndBox:

  • Do not use LowEndBox for support issues. Go to your hosting provider and issue a ticket there. Coming here saying "my VPS is down, what do I do?!" will only have your comments removed.
  • Akismet is used for spam detection. Quoting webhostingtalk.com URL seems to get binned consistently here, but I do peek into the spam box frequently to publish those comments.
  • Use <pre>...</pre> to quote the output from your terminal/console, or consider using a pastebin service.
