        paypal subscription problem is your own problem because WHMCS might automatically redirect you to paypal subscribe by default but you can always cancel it yourself. VPSes from them are always with lowend price if you don’t care about your pocket, they don’t care. If you had any problem with the DNS you memtioned, you have to explain more so people know what was going on.

        paypal subscription是你自己的问题WHMCS系统可能会自动给你导向到自动订阅,但是paypal的设置和检查是你自己的责任,你随时都可以取消订阅也不会影响服务。 他家vps已经很廉价了如果你不在乎你的钱,他们也不会在乎。另外就是DNS如果有问题,你应该具体说明,单纯说有问题谁也不知道是什么问题。

        Can vouch for Chris and ChicagoVPS too. Got a 1-year deal six months ago and the server is working great. I’ve had a handful of performance issues, but they’re all short-lived and when tickets are opened they’re responded too very quickly. Let’s be honest, you get what you pay for. And I’d argue that especially with the 1-year plan, you’re getting approximately 400% more than you pay for ;-)

  7. tb1991:

    Anyone considering this company should be forewarned. Read previous reviews and numerous problems pop up. I purchased a yearly plan and eventually gave up on using the machine due to on-going issues with support, always “about to be resolved.” Would suggest finding a better host.

    March 14, 2014 @ 9:38 pm
    • Hi Tb1991,

      Do you have a ticket ID so I can investigate your claim?


      March 15, 2014 @ 12:16 pm
      • sipxstream:

        I couldn’t agree more! Please read my comments under the previous ChicagoVPS offer page.

        Although uptime hasn’t been an issue, their support times of 4 days for a simple billing issue (cancelling an accidental PayPal payment) is absolutely terrible. When I asked as to the reason for their delays and put forward my concerns all I got was single-line replies from Adam Ng that did nothing to address them at all. It’s like they just don’t care once you’ve signed up to yearly+ plan.

        I most certainly won’t be taking out more services with these guys in a hurry…

        March 16, 2014 @ 6:39 am
        • Hi,

          I’m sorry to hear about your experience with the billing department.

          Do you have a ticket ID so I can investigate your claim? Thanks for your time.

          March 17, 2014 @ 9:03 am
          • As much as I’d like to endorse ChicagoVPS, I can’t.

            The systems themselves are awesome…WHEN THEY’RE UP. However, I’ve had no luck keeping my VPS up. It’s a bare lamp stack running 4 no traffic Laravel sites and it goes down about once a week. I always get a “We’re working on it”, or “We’re aware of an issue on xyz rack/node and will be testing it [at a later date]” excuse, but no follow up or further explanation. It was recommended that I try switching to a different rack, so I did (meaning I had to go out and update all my dns records…not too terribly difficult, but annoying). Then when I still had issues, a friend recommended I switch data centers, so I did that yesterday (again switching all the dns records) only to wake up to another Pingdom alert letting me know that my system is offline AGAIN!

            So, to keep from flaming ChicagoVPS, I’ll give them a chance to earn their reputation back by posting my Pingdom uptime reports at http://tagping.com/pingdom/ . If you can’t reach the site, it means the server is down. If you can, you’ll see that over the past 6 months I’ve averaged about an 85.5% uptime (unacceptable even for a personal development/test server). Hopefully that number will go up soon.

            Here are a few of the ticket numbers if you’d like to further investigate:
            3/18 – #YQD-361630
            3/16 – #PYD-425695
            3/10 – #SVI-984399
            1/30 – #FDK-876647
            1/17 – #CLW-083913
            1/9 – #JAR-941749
            1/9 – #LSP-829493

          • I have to agree with Daniel here. WHEN services are up, they’re astounding. However, I’ve seen more than one incident where servers have been left down for an hour + with ZERO acknowledgement or response to the issue.

            If you need help with your server, you’ll want to go elsewhere. These guys really take forever to work things out.

            March 21, 2014 @ 7:43 am
          • Wanted to give an update. Since the time of my last post, ChicagoVPS tweaked a few things and now my system seems to be stable and always available. Please take a look at the updated Pingdom charts at http://tagping.com/pingdom/ and see for yourself. I’ll continue to update them every month or so for anyone interested in these deals.

            March 29, 2014 @ 8:01 am
          • sipxstream:

            I’d like to give an update too. After providing my ticket number 9 days ago at their request, surprise surprise, I’ve heard absolutely nothing from as of yet.

  8. NotEven:

    They have good performance on boxes speed wise, but be prepared for 15% packet loss one hop out of ColoCrossing.

    March 14, 2014 @ 10:04 pm
    • Hi NotEven!

      We do not have any packet loss on our network, and anyone that pings our test IP’s can confirm that. Are you sure its not ICMP rate limiting causing packet loss on your server? If you installed a firewall (like CSF) on your server, I know that CSF by default enables ICMP rate limiting which therefore makes it seem like there is packet loss on the server.

  9. Cam:

    I don’t usually, but taking a moment to comment since happy customer never post. :)I have to say I’ve had a few machines with these guys starting around fall/winter 2012. The performance on the boxes has been good, and while I’ve only had 2 tickets in with them in that time, the response time has been good. Just sayin’.

      March 17, 2014 @ 9:09 am
  15. I let my ChicagoVPS 2Gb OpenVZ $7 per month subscription lapse last week. Have had it for over 2 years. Everything was fine until the data loss. The service after that has been noticeably sub-standard. I don’t run much on the VPS, just a handful of tiny webapps mostly for me to use on an ad-hoc basis, and a destination for Cpanel backups.

    Several times, after a few weeks of not touching the box I find my webapps to be down. It turns out my VPS was off. I didn’t turn it off, and there’s been no mention from Chiacago VPS of why it was shut down. With ad-hoc apps with minimal use, it’s a little frustrating having to log into a control panel, start the box up each time, just to use a JavaScript bookmarklet that points to a webapp on this VPS.

    I don’t know whether it is Chicago VPS policy to turn off VPS not actively serving requests all the time, or whether it’s a problem with the underlying hardware that necessitates a reboot every once in a while. Neither of those are accommodating of low infrequent use of a VPS. And so at that point $7 a month for an OpenVZ VPS that is unavailable more often than it is available is not a worthwhile option at this point, and certainly doesn’t inspire confidence to use it for any websites beyond sole-use.

    I have been with ChicagoVPS for more than 3 years now. Never disapointed. Issues are resolved quickly when I have them ( which is not often ) . I can vouch for Luc from support/billing . He his always responding well to all my tickets over the years ( beeing rdns, migration, billing questions, etc… )

    I think people need to learn how to speak with support and need to understand that you are not the only problem they have. Good explanation in a ticket and not always being defensive will get you nicer support anywhere. I come from the hosting industrie so I know how it is.

    I just renewed for another long period all my vps with them. Couldn’t be more happy ( well ipv6 will be nice ;) ) .

    March 17, 2014 @ 5:36 pm
    • There are issues with support. Completely ignoring tickets and issues, rather lame responses, not actually following through.

      I come from the hosting industry as well, have been working in it for the past 12 years. While your specific issues may be resolved quickly, you can’t just simply discount the issues others are having with at least one representative from support.

      The problem is, simply put, that they ignore glaringly obvious problems for hours on end (such as services nd servers being down due to hardware issues), and when that one specific member from support comes in, he gives generic one line responses and then just ignores the ticket

    The problem I see with ChicagoVPS, is that you can’t just build and destroy a box with the finesse of something like DigitalOcean. If you rebuild a box, certainly the OpenVZ ones, the password supplied doesn’t work, and you have the email them for a new root password.

    Have complained about this months ago, but nothing doing.

    Having said that, I do find them quick to reply to my emails.

    Since 0245, CST, server has been down. Chicago? No response.
    Tickets opened, just left unanswered
    Better than TWO HOURS later, nothing. Nada, zip.
    These people could care less about anything but money. Professional organization? Hardly. Responses to tickets? Not a CHANCE

    Adding to this, the fact that they refuse to put into place proper management for their VPS’, these guys are just clueless. Completely and utterly clueless

    March 24, 2014 @ 5:09 am
    • Tom:

      So, I figured I’d give these guys a fair shake, after my prior experiences this past month or so. Unfortunately, these incompetents just can’t handle business in an appropriate fashion. It started out shaky, and just never ended up good at all.

      Problem #1: Incompetent support
      24+ hours after this incident (read previous comments), server has been up and down, up and down, up and down, and these idiots are just clueless. NO idea what the problem is, but every ‘down’ time costs hours upon hours of time.

      This isn’t the first time with these people either, it’s more like the second, or third, in a month

      Problem #2: Spammy IP’s
      Immediately after purchasing the servers, having IP’s released, they are listed in RBLs, both public and private. Outlook.com, gmail, etc… These people don’t bother to clean anything, just release it.

      I’ve been in this industry since 2002, and believe me I’ve seen a LOT of bad apples in my day. These people are the bottom of that barrel though, the worst of the worst

  38. I’ve had about 20 VPSs with CVPS and only ever had an issue with one of them. I’ve been here numerous times to see what everyone else says and I’m still surprised at the negativity. CVPS has always been a person who knocks prices down for other competitors.

    I’ve currently have 2 VPSs with them and still satisfied paying for the yearly plans.

    Yes, I’ve had slow responses to some tickets, but we both know systems are out, so what can I expect them to say?
    Unit is great, excellent connectivity worldwide to many other tested locations.

    Happy. Very Happy @ $30/yr for 2Gb RAM, 50GB HD, and 99.786% uptime.

    Most of you complainers have no clue what truely BAD service is.

    I logged a ticket last night (Friday night) at 11:44pm and received a response back in 13 minutes and issue was resolved.

    For a $25 a year plan, that seems pretty fast for me.

    I’ve had good luck with ChicagoVPS. Surprisingly, their nodes do not seem oversold. They’re quick with great bandwidth. It’s a lot of value.

    Hi Chris, does the above price still valid until now?
    I tried to order a 2GB SSD-Cached, but it said the coupon has expired..!
