    Their servers are extremely slow as they put 1000s of customers on the same node. The VPS will work fine for a few weeks and then the problem will start. DO NOT buy even if it’s free.

      Really though – I cannot find you as a customer. “No Matches Found!” when I tried to search you in our database.

      Please email me at julian [@] alpharacks, and I’ll be happy to help. We certainly don’t place thousands of clients on the same node, I don’t even imagine that being possible on any type of hardware.

    • And what do you see? Paid hosting review sites like Serchen, and unmoderated review sites like Trustpilot?

      To give a better background… Serchen has been trying to get me to sign up with one of their advertising packages for many years. After I finally declined, those reviews surfaced on their website randomly, and those names don’t even come up in our database.

      With regards to TrustPilot, it’s pretty clear that those reviews are all written by the same people based on the writing style, in fact, 3 of the reviews were posted on the same exact day. And none of those names come up in our database either. Unfortunately the nature of running a business on the internet involves disgruntled competitors, as well as “advertisers” or “paid hosting review” sites who just want to get paid out.

      We have been in business for over 4 years and have over 16,000 active clients – I’d like to think we know what we’re doing to still be in business today, doing better and stronger than ever :-).

      Why not give us a try for yourself? If you’re not happy – we do have a 3 day money back guarantee.

    • Julian,

      It looks like there is a problem with your billing system. I just paid the invoice and it still shows that my invoice is pending. Even I got a text message on my phone from my bank for the payment of $11.50. Kindly look into it and process the order.

      Fingers crossed, this never happened to me once in years :) I hope it will be fixed soon.

      Thank you

    • Hi Usman,

      If you paid via 2Checkout, all payments need to be manually approved by them before we even see the money on our account. As soon as it is approved by them, our WHMCS detects the payment and will activate your service.

      This goes for everyone, if you’re in a hurry and looking for instant activation, please make sure your hostname is more than 4 characters, and also pay via PayPal.

      2Checkout can take up to an hour or two for payments to be approved by their review team, and Bitcoin/Coinbase can take anywhere from 5-10 minutes.

            I would recommend making sure you are using legitimate details to order, or you can try paying via PayPal or Coinbase.

      November 25, 2017 @ 3:31 am | Reply
      • I tried both. Woothosting isn’t perfect, but in my experience, Alpharacks is worse. I got a VPS with terrible performance – it used to just hang for 30 seconds at a time on trivial operations, probably caused by overcomitting the server. I then was wrongly charged via a Paypal “preapproved payment” and refused the refund for the obviously-wrong charge. I didn’t get this sort of crap from Woot (I got other crap from them, but not as bad as this).

        • Hi Nadav,

          Upon signing up for your service, you can select whether you would like to pay manually each billing cycle or to set up an automatic recurring subscription. I am sorry to hear that you forgot to cancel your subscription. Please email me at julian [@] alpharacks.com, and I will be sure to refund any appropriate charges accordingly and make this right. One thing I can tell you for sure is that we did not grow to over 16,000 customers by screwing people out of their money, that’s not what we’re in business for. We are here to help the community, and provide a service with great value at a fair cost. If you forgot to cancel the automated billing subscription, send me an email with the details and I’ll refund you in full right away – it’s as simple as that.

    • Addons are manually applied and it states in our welcome email that you do need to open a support ticket to request they be activated. Your welcome email states:

      “Note: IF YOU ORDERED ANY PRODUCT ADDONS DURING YOUR ORDER, YOU MUST OPEN A SUPPORT TICKET FOR THE ADDONS TO BE ACTIVATED.”

      How long have you been waiting for a ticket response? Our typical response time is right around 30 minutes, but due to this once in a lifetime Black Friday promo we’ve been slammed with orders, addon activations, and support tickets. Please allow a few hours more than usual for a ticket response during this holiday, and we appreciate your patience and understanding.

          That is normal for any OpenVZ VPS you order, not just them. OpenVZ is containing, so containers do not run an independent kernel as kvm vps would

          • Olaintech:

            Dhowland,

            No offense intended, but you’re incorrect. OpenVZ is a widely-developed project and is one of the oldest virtualization technologies out there. In fact, much older than KVM, KVM is still relatively new. OpenVZ kernels are still being actively maintained often. You can see the changelog/updates for the RHEL6 OVZ kernel at https://openvz.org/News/updates

            November 24, 2017 @ 7:54 pm
    • We run our host nodes based upon the latest OpenVZ RHEL6 kernels, and because of the way OpenVZ works, VM instances share the same kernel as the host node.

      If you require to run your own kernel, check out SSD KVM VPS specials here: https://www.alpharacks.com/BlackFriday2017/

    When I buy OpenVPZ server, is there a possibility to reinstall OS (e.g. Ubuntu) in the future?

      Yep, I just bought a server myself and checked for you. It is possible to reinstall and/or change distro at any time via the SolusVM control panel.

        Where can I find “SolusVM control panel” ?

      Sure – I’m feeling generous today in spirit of Black Friday! Open a ticket to support and reference this post, and we’ll be happy to grant 512MB of vSwap at no additional charge.

        Hi Julian

        Thanks, Ticket Created #516934

        However I must point it out that VSwap of size of physical memory is a standard option for pretty much every other VPS provider, you did not advertise that there won’t be VSwap on VM and there’s no way to order it separately so it’s a bit deceptive.

        Thanks anyway

    Second post here, just had my servers activated (because I got unlucky with the BTC fee at the time of sending). Here is a screenshot of the server loads (https://i.gyazo.com/733f473f4256babab0aba15cf5cccdbf.jpg), notice server ‘1’ I have had for months now, so clearly these childish claims that “it will work fine for the weeks money back guarantee then it goes to shit” are just slander. Do note, server ‘1’ is my master server that serves multiple websites using Apache vhosts, has LAMP stack with Phpmyadmin and a few other things. Literally no downtime and most of my sites load just over 1ms, servers ‘2’ and ‘3’ show the load on my newly deployed purchases, as you can see the claims are bogus that the load is high when idle.

    I have been fucked over many times by prepaying but I mean, its pennies…. $0.53 a month for 1GB….. I felt sort of forced to post this review, I have been attacked on sites like trustpilot, MyWOT where as competitors post shitty reviews and I can see this is a case with alpharacks.

    I hope this comment cleared up worries people may have.

  46. Beware of Alpharacks. I was not pleased with their services (my VPS had abysmal performance, often just hanging for many seconds at a time – see my thread here https://lowendbox.com/blog/alpharacks-halloween-vps-sale/ where I started out very optimistic but soon discovered the problems). So I decided to cancel the service.

    But then the really nasty surprise came. After a year, they charged me again. Turns out that when we set up the service, instead of setting up a one-time charge on Paypal, they set up a “preapproved payment” for the same charge every year. Which they did not cancel when I canceled their service, probably hoping that I’ll continue to pay them forever even long after I stopped using their services. The even worse part is they refused to refund the money they wrongly charged (even if they blaim me for this mistake, it’s still a mistake) and now I’m in a Paypal “claim” against them.
    So don’t waste your time or money with them. Look elsewhere.

    • Hi Nadav

      Upon signing up for your service, you can select whether you would like to pay manually each billing cycle or to set up an automatic recurring subscription. I am sorry to hear that you forgot to cancel your subscription. Please email me at julian [@] alpharacks.com, and I will be sure to refund any appropriate charges accordingly and make this right. One thing I can tell you for sure is that we did not grow to over 16,000 customers by screwing people out of their money, that’s not what we’re in business for. We are here to help the community, and provide a service with great value at a fair cost. If you forgot to cancel the automated billing subscription, send me an email with the details and I’ll refund you in full right away – it’s as simple as that.

    Previous vps provider(quadhost) was good for one year and then once the punenode had issues,they atopped replying or responding at all to the tickets. Too sad to say the least.

    Expecting good service after hearing testimonials.

    P.s can i opt for vswap too?

    Anyone remember them on here from 2013? Exactly 4 years ago today is when I signed up for a 256MB VPS with them for $2.50/month. Just renewed it again today. This marks my official 4 year anniversary with AlphaRacks.

    Cheers to julian for still contributing to this community many years later, and still being the host I knew back in 2013. Despite how big they’ve grown julian and his team have always been there for me and helped me in a friendly manner in the tickets (it feels very personal compared to support I would receive from the big guys).

    The panel looks good so far. Too many distros to chose from!

    Tried installing docker in ubuntu distro, but i believe it is a custom image hence not able to install extras.
    Trying out a new distro called scientific linux, very low on memory footprint but taking up a lot of disk space. So far, loving it!

      Meh. Just like every company right now, they’re probably super backed up because of all the BF/CM sales. It’s understandable, especially since a lot of people are just coming back to work today after a 4-day weekend – give them a little slack.

    Hi Guys,

    This is one very honest review of the host from my side with the Sales Receipt number 206410529777.

    If you guys view the thread slightly up you can see me signing up for the services two days ago.

    Lets get few things straight

    > Its an openVZ server that runs on a slightly dated kernel. I have had problem setting up nextcloud, docker and few other applications. When asked the support, i was pointed to a KVM container(I havent used any before so 0 experience)

    >If you plan to use the server particularly hosting websites, trust me, you will not get a deal for 7$ with the resources these guys are handing out, not many people would be handing out ipv4 with 1gb ram and 512 mb swap at this rate.period.

    3)Support is the tricky part, they are particularly very helpful and timely iv’e seen, but, their response times vary depending on the time you have raised the tickets. I think its timezone related issue but in no way a hindrance. +1 for support.

    4)The servers are fast(not sure if i am on a particularly lonely node), and my tests reveal 100mbits per second to the closest location.

    https://preview.ibb.co/kgOq7m/st.jpg

    And Decent speed to my location(Note: I am thousands not hundreds of kilometers away).

    https://preview.ibb.co/jk48tR/st1.jpg

    Overall it is a very positive response from my end, however if the kernel was updated, certain things couldve been better or maybe i am expecting too much for 7$ a pop server that is great for hosting sites and has support that you can never get from decent sized companies.

    I think its time for me to take flavor of KVM servers as well.

    @julian- Sorry for probably doing 20-30 reinstalls in the past two days, i am new to servers and i wasn’t able to get my apps working before realizing kernel based limitations.

    Can you please help me upgrade to a KVM? I would love to hear what you have for me this cyber monday :)

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.
