Services are provisioned on hostnodes featuring Dual Intel Xeon 5620 / 5639, 128GB RAM, 4 x 2TB HDD configured in hardware RAID10 with CacheVault. They are connected by 2 x 1Gbps uplinks.

All services include cPanel (Shared/Reseller) and SolusVM (VPS) as the control panel, 1 IPv4 and 20 IPv6, full root access, instant setup, and best effort DDoS mitigation by QuadraNet Vest.

  1. Thanks for sharing our Easter 2017 offers! If anyone has any questions, we are here to answer :-).

    There are three different type of product offerings with our Easter Promotions. Reseller Hosting, Master Reseller Hosting, and Linux VPS. I have clarified and explained each product line up below:

    What is Reseller Hosting?

    Have you ever considered starting your own hosting company? Or are you already operating a business in a different sector of the industry, but could use an additional stream of income?

    In a nutshell, Reseller Hosting allows you to start selling web hosting with cPanel and WHM! Whether you are an aspiring web host looking to sell cPanel hosting, or if you are an existing business in another industry (such as web designers or internet marketers) but looking to sell hosting to your customers as an additional stream of income, we have the solution and platform to provide you. The best part about it is you can design your own hosting packages and sell them to your customers at prices that YOU set.

    A Reseller or a Master Reseller is the perfect place to start your additional source of income! By choosing AlphaRacks, we provide you with the platform and infrastructure you need to get started with selling hosting. We even provide you with all the tools you need for starting your own hosting company including SSL certificates, domain resellers, legal documents, and more.

    What is Master Reseller Hosting?

    A Master Reseller account takes it another level further than reseller hosting. A Master Reseller allows you to create both shared and reseller hosting accounts. For example, you can start a web hosting company today selling shared and reseller hosting packages, meaning those who purchase reseller accounts from you will be able to start selling web hosting themselves, too.

    What is a Linux VPS?

    Well… I don’t want to bore you. I’m sure all of you reading this already know what a Linux VPS is ;-). We are offering 3 different specials for Linux VPS this Easter, one of them being a managed VPS plan with cPanel.

    Special LEB Bonus:

    Open a support ticket after your order – we will DOUBLE your bandwidth allocation for free on any of these Easter promotions. As a reminder, bandwidth resources are reset every month even on yearly plans!

    Please feel free to contact us at support@alpharacks.com. We are standing by 24/7 if you require any assistance.

    Happy Easter!

      Hi Julian,

      For LEB double bandwidth promo, is it same as double monthly traffic?

      Is this promo applied as long as I paid for annual payment?

      Sorry my English was bad.

    • I was about to buy the 36 month Master Reseller Plan with double space and SSH but your reviews are terrible.

      April 20, 2017 @ 6:16 am | Reply
      • I looked up reviews just by Google AlphaRacks.com Reviews and there are some as recent as 2017, just dont want to pay for something I wont be happy with..

        April 20, 2017 @ 6:19 am | Reply
        • Against my better judgment, I still decided to give it a try… I will update my experience here.

          This is what I bought hopefully I can still get the double space? It was an available option and charged me for it.

          Description Amount
          Invoice # XXXXXX
          MRH-Business (Promotion) – hostingrackspace.com (04/19/2017 – 04/18/2020) $108.00 USD
          Addon (hostingrackspace.com) – Double Storage (04/19/2017 – 04/18/2018) $8.00 USD
          Addon (hostingrackspace.com) – SSH Access (04/19/2017 – 04/18/2018) $5.00 USD

        • Erik:

          People tend to write reviews for bad service while doing nothing for good service. I haven’t had any issues with my VPS. I’m not sure where you’re finding reviews, but you’ll see their last offer was plagued with people complaining about things. Julian reached out to nearly everyone about their complaints. They, however, never responded to him afterwards. Perhaps they’re just customers that don’t want to be helped and just complain? There are always 2 sides to a story.

          My experience over the last month or so has been positive. Their support is helpful and quick enough. They certainly seem to make an effort to provide a good experience and I feel like that’s the truly important thing.

          April 20, 2017 @ 4:13 pm | Reply
          • Thanks! All I did was Google AlphaRacks.com Reviews but I understand a lot of times it is a competitor that also posts bad reviews, So I decided to give them the benefit of the doubt and go jump in and try them out.

            So far so good I am up and running… They were still honoring the Easter Deal which was a bonus.

  4. Rafael Isturiz:

    Questions about Master Reseller Plans:

    – SSH access?
    – Do you manage any type of backup?
    – Type of hard drive? SSD?
    – Email policy for cpanel accounts?


    April 16, 2017 @ 2:11 am | Reply
    • Hi Rafael, thank you for your inquiries.

      SSH access with our Reseller and Master Reseller hosting plans are not enabled by default, however can be added upon request (see order form)

      We do manage backups on our reseller servers, however currently it is on an entire server image basis, not on a per account basis. In addition, Reseller Hosting servers are provisioned on 4x Enterprise HDDs configured in hardware RAID10 with CacheVault protection. This means that you don’t have to worry about hardware failures, your data will not get lost and you will not see any downtime in the event of a drive failure, and the disk performance is optimized with writeback caching.

      The hourly email limit is 150 per cPanel account however upon valid reasoning we can raise this on a case by case basis.

      • Rafael Isturiz:

        Great!… It´s posible to update plan for add ssh and dedicated IP address later? So i can try the service first (like upgrade from Master Starter Plan to Master Business Plan) … Vanity Nameservers? Whitelabel?

        April 17, 2017 @ 3:46 am | Reply
        • Hi Rafael, yes, that is possible. We provide whitelabel nameservers and hostname by default, you can also create your own

          April 17, 2017 @ 2:20 pm | Reply
      • Do you plan to offer any kind of account level back up like JetBackup or Bacula4. I totally understand the hardware failure prevention is there but you know sometimes clients just delete files by mistake of their site gets hacked and they want it recovered. Backups help out a lot in those instances.

        April 17, 2017 @ 5:35 am | Reply
        • We are currently looking into JetBackup and this is something we will be adding to our reseller servers in the very near future.

  5. The reseller hosting offers caught my eye! These are the best prices I’ve seen around.
    You say free migration, but is there any limit to how many accounts you will migrate? Thanks & happy easter.
    Cheers, Gary.

    • Hi Gary, thanks, we wanted to throw some crazy deals this Easter ;-) I’m glad that you found our offers to be attractive!

      We provide free migration with our reseller hosting and master reseller hosting plans (no limit to how many accounts we will migrate), as long as the other hosting platform is also powered by cPanel!

      Happy Easter!

      I use mine as a VPN sometimes and never had any issues

      April 16, 2017 @ 5:52 am | Reply
    • Yes, you can use our VPS for VPN purposes. You would just want to enable TUN/TAP modules in the VPS control panel.

  7. Alexander:

    Hey guys, I have an AlphaRacks VPS (since 2014) with one of their older promotions they had on LowEndBox. The service has been solid for so many years, so I figured I’d grab a master reseller offer too. If anyone is curious they use LiteSpeed Web Server, which by the way is a phenomenal drop in replacement for Apache!

  8. Adnan:

    I bought MANAGED VPS with cPanel, I purchased the SSH access as well. I was going to use this to host a few WordPress websites. I couldn’t install WP-CLI (which even comes installed with regular shared hosting) because the sudo command doesn’t work and when I inquired with customer support the reply I got was ‘ SSH only to access your account, please use cpanel enable custom modules as per your wish.’ I replied to that telling him that WP-CLI is not in the list and I really need that to get some stuff done fast.. maybe he’s working on it but its been in progress for almost 12 hours now. This is quite disappointing, did I ask for too much?

    If it’s only to access my account, why do you charge me extra for it? I don’t get it.. Anyway its okay I kind of wanted to gain experience with a VPS and that’s why I bought this.. however, I still need WP-CLI to make use of this box for what its worth.. If you can’t do that, then I guess I’ll need a refund. Please help! Thanks

    April 16, 2017 @ 2:26 pm | Reply
    • Hi Adnan, I was able to find your account. I see that you ordered a master reseller hosting account with SSH access, while you have jailed shell access, master reseller’s do not come with full ROOT SSH access as you are on a shared environment.

      Did you mean to order the managed VPS Easter Special instead? As a VPS is your own environment, those include full root access.

      I just sent you an email, so please reply to it, I’ll work with you and we’ll go from there.


      April 16, 2017 @ 3:39 pm | Reply
    • jvnadr:

      You did not purchased a managed vps, but a shared reseller account. So, probably you got a jailed ssh access, that is only for limited tasks (scp, rsync etc.). If you bought managed vps, then, you wouldn’t purchased ssh access, because in any vps the ssh access is the first thing you get, it cannot work without it for the client.
      So true story here is that you are dissapointed only because you are lacking of knowledge on what a hosting platform is. First learn that and then, come here again to bash a provider.

      • We were able to work with Adnan via the ticketing system, and come up with a solution for what he is looking for.

        I did mention I was looking to gain experience with a VPS, so I am trying to learn. No need to be rude about it.. The only reason I wrote that post here is because his support had stopped responding to me, and I was right to do so.

        Getting Julian involved got my problem solved. Thanks for all the support, Julian. I hope you keep up this service in the future.

      @Adnan, wp-cli is a php phar file, so you can use it from your project directory also. In this case, your command will be `php wp-cli.phar any_wp_cli_command`. For this you don’t need any sudo access or any privileged access. Thanks!

    Thanks to Julian & co for the superb support today, even it being a weekend and holiday. They were able to finish my migrations within a few hours, which I do appreciate considering its Easter Sunday.

    I used to pay for my ServerHub reseller account at $77.61 annually, now I’m paying just $12 annually at AlphaRacks, and the server appears to be MUCH faster.

  11. Rafiqul Islam:

    Hi Julian, if I order any package, how long the promotional price will stay: lifelong or for the first ordered period?

    I saw some promotional price plans recur throughout the service period, some are renewed to original price after promotional plan period is over. What’s your strategy, please? Can a single person with the same email and billing information order both Reseller and VPS at the same time?

    Please let me know ASAP. I want to ensure a VPS and a Reseller plan before it ends. Thanks!

    April 17, 2017 @ 1:20 am | Reply
    • Hi Rafiqul, these low prices are good for as long as you keep your service (never subject to a rate increase!) In other words, you will be able to renew at the same price.

      You may order multiple services under the same account, we have quite a bit of people who ordered both reseller and VPS

  12. Eldon:

    I’m considering your master reseller option, but am worried about overselling. How do you prevent resellers from over crowding a server and deminishing the level of service for the other people on the server?

    April 17, 2017 @ 5:44 am | Reply
    • Eldon – we’re able to mitigate this issue as we have plenty of reseller hosting servers, and these special promotions are based on the extra space that we have across these servers.

      We also use CloudLinux, which helps address this issue as well. In addition to this, our servers run KernelCare for rebootless maintenance and LiteSpeed Web Server.

        What kind of server load is deemed acceptable/normal on these servers? I noticed you have a three (3) refund policy, is this the same for the reseller accounts?

        • Hi Eldon – as with every server, the server loads will always vary based on peak times, traffic activity, etc., we have monitoring set up and make sure that our CPU levels are acceptable. At the end of the day we provide great performance and excellent uptime to everyone. Furthermore, all of our reseller servers have at least a minimum of 8 CPUs, some even having 16 CPUs.

          The three (3) day refund policy also applies to reseller accounts, so feel free to give us a try :-). There are no inode limitations in place.

            For anyone interested, I am placing this here to remind me to do a full review of this provider. I have never used them before and honestly would love for it to work out, however I have been in the hosting field a while and will give them a fair review and place it here and on other forums as well. I look forward to working with Julian and his staff in the coming week.

          PHP 5.2 or newer
          MySQL 4.1 or newer
          PHP and Apache extensions :
          PDO MySQL

          • Hi Melissa, we offer free migration! We will be able to migrate if your previous hosting is also powered by cPanel. After we restore the cPanel backup, then all you would have to do is update the nameservers of your domain.

            LiteSpeed Web Server is compatible with Apache features, that is not an issue.


            April 17, 2017 @ 7:13 pm
      • I purchased the master reseller yesterday, but it seems that you all need more than cPanel access to migrate my sites. I don’t have time to backup all my websites.

    I would like to know if I can sign up to your reseller plan, with a domain, but then change the domain in a months time. The reason why is I would like to test your services and then once my current contract comes to an end migrate my cpanel accounts over, using my current domain name.

    Dear Julian,
    I bought the Master Business Plan
    but IP’s have not been set up yet.
    (see ticket #819937 – IP address setup)

    Hope you sort it out soon, as I will be sorry to use the three (3) day refund policy (and changes to PTR records need some time to propagate)

    • Did you get a response back? The IP assigned to you, it is clean and not block on spam lists?

        Yes, being persistent I finally got a static IP and rDNS setup, I also received a statement that “We don’t provide ipv6 for shared webhosting server. We only offering ipv6 for VPS products.”
        The IP was blacklisted by Barracuda.
        I sent a request for removal to Barracuda but they did nothing (in spite of the advertised 12 hour response).
        I will do a detailed post (or post-mortem) when I have more info.

        • I am in the same boat as you. Its been 5 days and the IP is still blocked. Seems like all the IPs (even the shared ip on the server) they have are blocked. Now its been more than 51 hours since the last response form support. After getting tired of waiting I have created a support ticket to cancel and for a full refund and its been 24 hours and no one is even responding to that. Just finally emailed Julian directly, lets see if that gets things moving.

          I was so excited to signup with them specially since they are a 7 yr old establishing company :(

        Hi Julian, thanks for responding.

        Regarding the IP provisioning, no one would complain if you informed us that it would take a few hours to provision (see also Kai’s post) – may I suggest that the welcome e-mail (Your AlphaRacks Reseller Account Information) is a good place for this info.

        A definite plus for your plans are the add-ons (Double Storage and SSH Access) – I purchased both.

        It would be very nice if you would provide SSH access details for the reseller accounts as the procedure is not the same as with SSH access to a VPS – and explaining the limitations will save you a few support tickets.

        Another plus is that we get immediate access to two DNS servers.

        Now the only minus has to do with blacklisting by Barracuda – I think it can be sorted out (I’m watching Enigma’s post – and will try again with Barracuda after having a fully configured server).

  25. Hi Julian,

    I ordered a Business Reseller four days ago. I was assigned a shared IP that is on block lists for SPAM. I requested a dedicated IP which also is blocked. Your Support advised me to wait 48 hours and it should be cleared. After 48 hours, it is still banned. I emailed support again and no response, emailed them again after 24 hours and still no response and all the IPs remain banned. Can you please let me know what is going on.

    • Engima, I’d love to help. However, upon searching, I was unfortunately not able to find an account under your name “Engima”. Please send me an email to julian @ alpharacks.com with your ticket ID or account number so I can investigate this matter and provide a resolution.

      • Hi Julian,

        I have created multiple tickets already. No response at all. Its been five days and I still have banned IPs. Here are the ticket numbers


        Seems like I am getting faster response on LowEndBox than on the ticket system.

        • So just an update. I finally got a response. Apparently getting the IP cleared is not going to be easy for them since these are very heavily abused IP’s. Barracuda has a policy regarding IPs that have been banned multiple times. They don’t just clear those easily and there is a long waiting for such IPs.

          More importantly, I was finally was able to get my account with AlphaRocks cancelled. Everyone better BEWARE. Even though they assigned me a banned IP and asked me to wait 48+ hours to be cleared and did not respond to my inquiries for two days (after the waiting) according to their tech support “Joshua Collishaw” I am over my three day trial period. I am in complete awww that he would have the audacity to even say that. I haven’t even tried the service for one second. The account setup is incomplete (banned ip) I am not going to try a service that from the get go is going to cause problems for my customers. Anyhow, he mentioned that he has made an exception and refunded my fees. I still can’t believe he would say that. I would have expected something more along the lines, that we are sorry for delayed answer and not being able to provide you a clean IP and would like to request that you give us more time to sort this out and we will extend your trial period or something. Instead I got that crappy two liner saying that I am over my three day trial period and they are making an exception for me out of the goodness for their heart. wow!

    I have been using the Alpharacks for awhile now and would like to share my quick review. I’ll be writing a more detailed review after a few months.

    Server: 10/10

    The server was immediately activated after I ordered, and I was able to start working on it. I didn’t even have time to make a cup of coffee first, lol :)

    The server works as expected. It’s quick and snappy.

    Support: 9/10

    Support has always responded to my questions within an average of.. 30 to 45 minutes? I think the most I’ve ever waited was nothing more than 1 hour 30 minutes. Sometimes even within a few minutes, I guess it all depends on how busy they are at the time of the day? Either way, it’s reassuring to know that they are always there whenever I need help (which is not very often anyways).

    If they offered phone support, that would be a great + to have, but what the heck? I’m paying a measly 12 dollars a year, and I’m not going to expect all the bells and whistles. I can work with the ticketing system, they always reply quick enough.

  27. Hi Julian,

    I’m hoping I didn’t make a mistake switching over to AlphaRacks. There are still 4 of my websites that aren’t working after the migration. My customers are depending on my service. I have 2 separate trouble tickets in to your company that haven’t been resolved. I hope you can help bring a quick resolution.

    • Hi Melissa, I am happy to see that we were able to migrate most of your accounts successfully. We’re working on the few that are remaining, and it’s being worked on with high priority.

      We will update your trouble ticket as soon as more updates are available :-).

      Thank you for choosing AlphaRacks.

      I don’t know why you move here wit your “Serious” client site.

      Don’t choose CHEAP/LEB offer for your customer. You can use this for training purpose.

      Check this,

      I have 3 VPS with 280days uptime. No resetart require!

      Cheap is always cheap.

      Good luck

    Hi Julian,

    I would like you to please respond to my ticket #845650.

    and answer why even after purchasing a plan with a dedicated IP, I am on a shared one!

    Apologies for posting here, but would like a response soon.

    • Hi Kai, you just placed your order less than 24 hours ago, I have activated your dedicated IP addon now, and updated your ticket with the IP details.

    I am interested in a master reseller service, but I am afraid that in a few months the service will be poor or slow by overselling.

    You confirm to me that the server will always be stable from today and for the next years? So I do not have to leave your company.

    What differences there are in the server between the master reseller in


    And the promotion?

    Be warned, their outsourced support team’s English is not very good.
    They don’t understand very complex questions and seem to automatically agree that something is possible.

    It is indeed instant setup, cpanel / whm loads blazing fast and server stats look pretty good.

    Only thing you should note is when ordering “Reseller Business Plan” plan, assigned a shared IP by default and not dedicated as stated. Opened a ticket (which I should not even have to do) so we will see…

    At this price not much to complain about but people should know this up front:)

    • Hi Susan, when I ordered the plan I was also assigned a shared IP (banned IP at that) and when I opened a ticket, I got a response back from their tech support saying that I am the one at fault and I should have selected dedication IP option at checkout and paid the $12.00 extra for it.

      I had to go back and respond to them with this lowendbox offer link and only after that they assigned me a dedicated IP (Which also was banned) and after five days they were still unable to get it unbanned and when I requested refund, they told me that I am over my three day trial period. Anyhow, they apparently made an exception and refunded my money before I took it up with Paypal.

      So just beware!

        Hi Enigma. I must say my experience has been different so far. Submitted a ticket and had dedicated IP in about 3 hours. Checked assigned IP and all clean.

        For $19 a year I do not expect much, but hope solid host. So far the server is fast. Time will tell but so far pretty satisfied with the purchase.

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.
