    FYI the order link on Summer Sale – Master Reseller Special #3 plan is missing.

        • Hi, thanks for your reply, as with every company in any industry, from time to time we do send email notifications to existing clients before announcing anywhere else, this includes any special promotions, or new services that we release, or when we’re conducting client surveys to determine how we should grow. For example, our existing client base was the first to know about our Master Reseller product when it first got released.

          Clients who are not interested in receiving such notifications have the option to opt-out from these email notifications by logging into the client area and modifying their preferences, or by clicking on the unsub button at the bottom of those emails.

    Just curious, when was your last 3 outages and how long did they last?

    What is the current uptime and load of a few of the reseller nodes?

    July 31, 2017 @ 9:31 pm | Reply
    • Hi Josh, we provide a 99.9% uptime guarantee. Server loads on reseller nodes will always vary based on usage, however, we ensure that the server loads are normal and acceptable, and they are monitored by our staff 24×7 to ensure excellent performance.

      We utilize 8 core servers with our reseller nodes, which allows us more cushion when it comes to server load.

    • Netflix will only work on residential connections, they have blocked every datacenter IPs from accessing their platform, so regardless of which VPS provider you choose to go with, it is not going to work with Netflix.

    Hi,
    Good to see a lot of positive comments. I am almost ready to go for it but I have few questions about Master Reseller Special #1:
    1. Shared IP Address – shared for all the accounts/domains under the plan or shared for some (how many) Master accounts?
    2. Any limits on the number of domains?
    3. Limits on the mailboxes size in the account(might need to have 2-3 with around 10gb size)?
    4. Can I just point a domain to you without moving in the beginning (just to make sure everything is ok)?
    5. Renewal price next time will be?
    Thanks in advance!

    August 1, 2017 @ 7:41 pm | Reply
    • Hi,

      1. Shared for all the accounts under the plan. Master Reseller Plan #2 and #3 come with a dedicated IP, and additional dedicated IPs can always be added later as well.

      2 & 3 – no limits

      4. Yes, that is fine.

      5. The price you see is locked in. Renewal price will be the same, we don’t increase prices here :-).

    • I’ve been using an Alpharacks VPS for the last year with similar bad experience: Performance is awful, with trivial operations like ssh’ing in, running “ls” or making an HTTP request to an HTTP server running on the VPS often being delayed by many seconds. I am guessing that the problem is with the specific host my VPS is running on which has been oversold, but the Alpharacks support have been unable or unwilling to move problematic clients off this host, and when I asked to move *my* VPS off this host, the move failed after 2 days of downtime of my VPS. So I’m not happy :-( I have never had such problems with other VPS service providers I tried including (in the past) Crissic and (today) WootHosting. Today I would recommend the latter.

      The latest version of Ubuntu we have available at this time would be Ubuntu 16.04 64 bit however as soon as the template is available for 17.04, we will be sure to add it right away

    Thanks,
    Sergio.

    hi Julian,

    Is there any bandwidth overage charges if my VPS exceeds the monthly badnwidth quota ?

    Thanks.

    • Sammy, absolutely not :-) We would inform you via email when you’re approaching your bandwidth allotment, and provide the opportunity to upgrade. If you decide to not upgrade bandwidth, your VPS will just be suspended temporarily (bandwidth meter resets every month)

  42. Don’t forget to see feedback on google, and especially 3 days to be refunded, think about it!

    I should leave an advice to everyone who is planning to purchase their master reseller/reseller plans. I had bought this sometimes ago when they ran this promotion. After 2 months when I tried setting up one of the WordPress sites. I started to notice that CPU usage is maximumly 98% and Ram around +-90%. Too much server load. Randomly site going down whenever a simple post update runs. Navigating around website feels like I am back to 1998. Receiving too many request time out error as no response from the server and sometimes 503 error from server side. But the thing is there no other traffic in beside me. Also, I was using uptime monitor and was randomly receiving alert notice of server going down. Before purchasing this I asked a question to them if they are overselling the packages. But they acted as they are not but now I am having a hard time on trusting any cheap reseller offer on lowendbox. Because they all do oversell. I wonder if they are doing a false advertisement for selling out their reseller package. I sent a message to their support mentioning to @Julian and waiting for receiving a reply on this server load issue.

    Some screenshot of proving the problem:

    * I will update this feedback report based on their future service.

    Do not buy any VPS or server from AlphaRacks. They are cheating as the server keeps down. Besides that, they are changing me 1 more transaction even though I had cancelled >1 month in advance. Very suck service. Keep asking the refund, but no entertain on what I face now.

    Bad provider. DO NOT TRUST THEM!!!

    Purchased a VPS with them, was fine for a few days then had a few problems with the panel (couldn’t reboot/boot/reinstall). Opened a support ticket (quick response), they offered to move me to another server which I agreed. The new server was however laggy and quite unresponsive so I decided to move back to the old server where at least it was still function able.

    A few days later, the sever went down everytime it got booted up so I hit them up again, they first said it was an issue with the panel and that they would be getting on to it, about a day later I asked them again if the problem was sorted. Another rep posted me a log saying that it was under DoS attack, and that was literally his message (no explanation no options to fix).
    My most recent reply was to Reinstall my OS and block any ports (1. I did say that the panel was broken so how was I going to reinstall my OS. 2. I don’t see how reinstalling OS would get rid of the DoS attacks)
    Emailed Julian or the guy up in these postings, still no answer.

    TLDR:
    Fast support and responsive, for my 1 support ticket I had about 4 different people answering it and it probably didn’t help that none of them read the context.
    Feel like I’m going in circles, all I wanted was a working VPS, as of now it is also too late to get a refund.

    This is a solid provider. Been using AlphaRacks (VPS) for a fair amount of time now (over 8 months). A huge improvement compared to my other VPS with NodeServ.

    Garbage host as are all hosts that offer prices like the ones in this deal. As expected, their servers are overloaded/underpowered.

    Hi Julian. These are some really attractive prices. I’m thinking about snagging up a Master Reseller. If I do, would you be able to migrate my accounts from 247 host?

    I can recommend alpharacks. They go above and beyond.

    When are you guys going to open up a location in the east coast?! We need more datacenters here in Oklahoma, LOL.

    Hey I currently have a VPS with you guys and it works good thank you, My question is if I wanted to order another one can you guarantee it will be on a different node? I want to set up a redundant/failover to meet my client’s checklist.

    Ordered the Summer Sale – Linux VPS Special #3

    And after i paid via paypal… received nothing from them, no vps was setup… I thought it was instant…
    Any help can i get here?

    I purchased Linux VPS Special #3 and it worked quite well for a few days. Now, it seems that the server is oversold and the speed is pathetic. Yearly plan is a trap because they do not offer any refund.

    CPU Model: Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5520 @ 2.27GHz
    CPU Details: 4 Core (1133 MHz)

    The benchmark of the CPU is 4453 and when the server is oversold, your website will take minutes to open. I would NOT recommend this host. Go for alpharacks if you want google to kill your website because of slow response.

    I confirm Alpharacks are oversold. I have artifact.
    I buy many service from Alpharacks , one of them is reseller package.
    I buy biggest package and double space after I got account I don’t have time to test.
    One month later I start to test and found server are running under very high load and very slow response.
    Many time some service are down (https, email, mysql) it just random event that usually found.
    I open ticket to get refund because it can’t use for my customer and they refuse.
    I start to collect information for tell the truth to the world.

    1) Alpharack’s Server load VS Competitor’s Server load (I buy new one from another that expensive than Alpharack but reasonable price)

    – Blue are Alpharack , Orange are compeitor
    https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B_OIvZRXjMG6OFA0cVMwZzFYMms/view?usp=sharing

    2) Alpharack’s with load 70!! Please ask your self you can use this server for production work?

    https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B_OIvZRXjMG6bmFSWktiUENCdFU/view?usp=sharing

    3) Alpharack’s weekly load average , it still high

    https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B_OIvZRXjMG6clItSXlpcXJxYlE/view?usp=sharing

    But for VPS service I don’t have issue because I did not use it too much.

    Dear New customer , please consider if you interest to buy reseller service.

    Dear Alpharack, I am your customer you can check ticket 751166 that open on 2 month ago.

    NEVER buy any VPS from alpharacks. They cheat by offering vps at lower rate. VPS will work fine for a week so that the refund period is over. After that, vps will never work. They trap customers by offering cheap VPS. If you love your website, you will leave alpharacks after a week, but you will lose your money. So, if they say $8/year, it means $8/month. Their revenue model is based on cheating. NEVER EVER BUY.

  58. Alpharacks is the absolute champion of bad hosting. It’s almost unbelievable how could they manage to bring the service quality to such low.
    Shame to LEB they keep posting their offers. You should know better!

    Alpharacks is not perfect but their openvz are totally worth to try.

    i’ve been using it like 3 o 4 months and i’ve had like 2 o 3 bad days (slow io or no cpu time) but their support actually tries to help you (at least), after asking for help their moved my vps to another server and now it runs like a charm.

    don’t be fucking cheap you stupid fuck, it was only $8/year, if you’re testing non serious stuff or just learning alpharacks is great.
    if you’re trying to use it to do real work please find better options, you’re gonna avoid so much headaches

    PD: i’m using vps to scrap data (at slow speed of course) and store it on a mongodb instance, i hope you guys don’t mind ;)

    Hello Julian these are great offers. I have used you guys in the past when you took over Rijx – I was really happy with the way you guys handled the transition and from the few times that I’ve interacted with support, you guys were quite quick to help. Unfortunately I didn’t need a VPS anymore at the time so I didn’t renew.
    But now I’m back in the game and I’m looking for one and your offer for the 2gb vps caught my eye. I was wondering if this offer was still available?
