    Might add another one.

    Thank god they purchased NFPHosting. Hopefully, the quality of services will improve (and their support is probably better too).

    I just bought a VPS for $7/year at the right time then, 1GB RAM, awesome! They also said in the mail that they will honour these users and keep their prices so I’m hoping for a $7/mo. renewable service.

    Bought a server from here just a couple hours ago, and got all my LAMP stack setup and moved over.

    The network speeds are lightning quick. Great value for the money.

    A+ from me, I’m a happy camper.

  5. I want to go out of my way to mention that Alpharacks is incredibly poor quality. I’ve had 4 or 5 VPS’ with them, of multiple kinds and sizes, and all have suffered from frequent outages and incredibly low speed. Their “highest quality” KVM plan has corrupted images listed in the imaging backend.

    For instance, I asked to have Ubuntu 18 reinstalled, which was listed on-site, and was told repeatedly that it wasn’t available and my support ticket was deleted. By the way, the reason I was asking them to do it was because my server instance spontaneously shut down, and was completely unresponsive. This was a small server that wasn’t even serving anything publically at the time.

    The Debian kernel they had listed on the site had a really fun systemd issue which shut down my sql server every five minutes. I literally came close to divorce because my partner’s website went down day after day, and this was a 7-page WordPress site. It took me months to track down the issue, which was unrelated to me and which the support staff didn’t understand.

    The support is poor, and the customer service people seem unable to understand basic ideas, or at least, don’t read their incoming emails. Replies are almost always cookie-cutter, even if you put serious detail into your ticket. Multiple times I’ve had to explain and explain again issues to employees. And again, the speed is bad. Site load no matter what will be slower than the competition. I have multiple sites on SSDNodes and Digital Ocean, and I don’t even think about them in comparison. With AlphaRacks, it has COST me significantly more money than the price of the servers.

        Can you show us some proof that your claim supports the claims you posted where you mention people that gave a positive review are employees of the company!? I wonder if you have a screenshot, that shows us that your websites are unreachable (an uptrends report, for example).

        There are quite some customers that are very happy with the hosting services and the VPS’s AlphaRacks delivers. After almost 2 years of using a single VPS, I now ordered a VPS Pool which works like a charm (in different locations!). But I wonder if there are some external tests available that shows us the problems you and Sunny experience.

    They send daily promotional emails, products and prices are same always just promotion name change. Alpharacks are totally scam company. They are not posting in blogs bcz they know they will get negative comments here, so they are keep disturbing you on personal email. Sometimes i replied to that email for refund, they were not responding. Lol.

    Dear Julian and Co,
    Greetings from Amsterdam!

    I am your satisfied customer for last 14 months now. Your service is very good. Currently I have a 2048MB VPS plan with you.

    I am seriously considering upgrading to a Dedicated server offer from here, as your prices are too hard to resist, and I could use the extra performance as my website and customer base is growing.

    May I ask, how long this offer will still be available for?

    Cheers,
    Luuk

    I first signed up for 4 accounts in 2017. I ran into issues with the IPs being blacklisted. Appealed to support. They were incompetent. It took over a month to resolve the issue, and it was only after I was able to escalate the issue. Because of supports incompetence, I was provided with a small credit.

    A few months later, I purchased a new reseller account. It was unusable. I spent about two weeks dealing with the incompetent support to resolve the issue. No go. At that point, I was fed up with AlphaRacks and canceled all my accounts.

    Fast forward a few more months into early 2018, I no longer have a way to log into AlphaRacks because I ask them to nix everything. I received charges on my credit card from them. What? I did some digging. They never bothered to cancel the 2co subscription when they canceled the services. I went in and canceled them. Then I email support for a refund. No response. I emailed Josh about it. No response. I emailed Julian about it. No response.

    A few months ago, they started advertising on LEB again. I emailed Julian again about getting a refund. No response.

    So, I cannot recommend AlphaRacks.

    Further, they recently “bought out” WootHosting. It took me several months and several FTC complaints to get WootHosting to stop sending me emails. What happens when AlphaRacks bought out WootHosting? Hello, spam!

    There are no physical addresses on the emails (in violation of CAN-SPAM act) and the unsubscribe link takes me to a login page, but I don’t have an account so I cannot log in and unsubscribe. That’s another violation. So, it looks like I’ll have to engage in reporting AlphaRacks to the FTC for several months now. Fun, oh fun.

    Hey Julian! You guys still owe me money. How about you pay up?

    Hi

    I have been hosting with alpharacks for 16 months (and counting), no major issues at all. Overall they are a good provider, they aren’t perfect but they are certainly better than most and they are serious about providing a good hosting service.

    For those complaining above just keep in mind they just acquired 2 other hosting company’s as mentioned. There staff are probably dealing with a bunch of questions and logistics with the merge and whatnot. Have a little patience and understanding, all will be ok :)

      What are you talking about mate?
      I have 4 VPS with them and they’re constantly shutting down and require support.
      My tickets queue won’t fit on that page, over 30 tickets in the last year or so – all responses totally incompetent.
      I’m just too lazy to migrate but I’m doing it now once I manage to get ahold of enough processing power to actually process the backup of my sites.
      A WootHosting shared server just migrated to Alpha as well – all sites down as well.
      Just a terrible company.

    I got 4 vps moved over from woothosting after they purchased them and immediately upon the move the two KVM stopped responding and I have not been able to access them for days. I would describe the service as terrible if it wasn’t for the fact that they stopped responding to my inquiries for help and opening tickets on their website is the only available method for contacting them.

    For all I know they could have lied to me saying they moved the vps and only given me some random unreachable ip addresses. I went with the cheapest option for VPS expecting somewhat of a sub-stellar quality and service, but this has crossed beyond any reason and we are more into scam territory.

    Please, spare your nerves and time and go with a more reputable provider.

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.
