    Hello,

    I would like to ask if it is okay to put a heavy CPU load on this Dedicated Server plan. Is it?
    Thank you.

    • It is your own dedicated server. Do whatever you like with the CPU.

      December 1, 2013 @ 10:39 pm | Reply
    • You have full control of the server. The server is dedicated to you. Use the CPU has much as you like.

        Worthless company… can’t give a straight answer as to when they’ll set up your server. They like to blame UPS/FedEx for why they delayed the server, and will tell you “This week” with absolutely no intent on delivering.

        They are blatantly incompetent., don’t sign up.

        • Not sure what exactly occurred for you or your ticket but everything was responded to promptly and many have received servers.

          We provided very valid proof on shipping and weather conditions. Also do note that it is a slow period with close downs / public holidays etc. It happens in every company across the global at this time.

          I found a few tickets that might be related to your case and I’m sure if you asked for a refund you would have been responded to.

          It works both ways. If you are bumping tickets every day or even every hour it creates more load for us and hard for us to work with you. For those that have been understanding and waited patiently we’ve provisioned them servers first as it’s a great working relationship.

          Either way, thanks for your feedback, even if it was harsh. We do look at ways to improve and this includes dealing with the different types of customers that we have.

            I only replied every few days, generally to follow up on your statements of “this week” or “late this week” for a delivery timeline, and I understand that you guys were closed at least 1-2 days late this month (WELL after the server should have been delivered) for the holiday, but

            As for provisioning servers for people who didn’t ‘bug you’ about them is absolute bullshit. That shows that you are unwilling to work with users who contact your support department, almost as if running your support department is a hassle for you, something you don’t want to do. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t always like dealing with people, but when my customers call me with an issue or a question, I deal with it. Customer service is the #1 most important aspect of your business if you desire to keep a strong customer base. Quick response times are great, but you ***HAVE*** to deliver on what you say. If you tell someone something will be ‘this week’, it sure as hell needs to be late ‘this week’, not pushed off for a week, then pushed off again, and then keep disproportionately blaming delays.

            For 3 straight weeks, I was told “this week.” On the subject or delays though, well… I had several parts orders come through the DFW processing facilities on both UPS and FedEx that were delayed from Friday until Monday earlier this month during the ice storm, so I realize that you had delays. Even if you guys truly did have 2-3 more days worth of delay on shipping as you indicated, that should have only contributed to a total of around 4 days of delay on delivery, not 3 weeks. Simple math, honestly: 3 day normal turnaround time + 4 days shipping delay = 7 day delivery time. Tack on a day or two if you truly were as overloaded as you claim to have been and the time frame for REASONABLE delivery is 8-9 days, not 21+ (I imagine it might have been in excess of 30 if I would have continued to wait). I was extremely patient (in my opinion, and in the opinion of a couple other friends who I showed the ticket to to make sure I wasn’t being an unreasonable asshole) with the issue, and gave you more than ample time to deliver (more than twice what would have been a reasonable) and in the end (especially given your statement about your provisioning decisions above) that I was treated unfairly because I simply asked you to follow through on your offer. Also, since you found “a few” tickets that might be related to this issue, I can tell I’m clearly not alone in my frustration.

            To be honest, at least in my case, you guys could still try and make things right. If you offered say, a full month or two worth of credit, or a deeper discount, and guaranteed that you’d provision the servers quickly (maybe even same day since, after all, you should have them in stock and racked already if your previous comments in emails and tickets were accurate) then I might strongly consider coming back. Most, if not all of us, that left are back in the market for a server, and in most cases we won’t be able to get a server until next week at the earliest. You still have a chance to admit your mistakes and make things right, but you guys have to do it. I know I’d be willing to give you guys another chance, but you guys have to step up to the plate. I know several times through out my career I’ve screwed up, but I busted my ass to make things right… yeah, that meant I had to take a decent hit a couple of times, but it ended up being worth it because the customers ended up staying and ended up becoming some of my top clients.

            I’m going to end on something I learned in my business classes in college that I believe holds true, especially in this case:
            If a customer has a good experience they’ll tell 2-3 people, but if they have a bad experience they’ll tell many more (upwards of 10-20 depending which of my professors you listen to).

            Not all is lost, but the ball is in your court: Do you let these disgruntled customers leave, or do you try to make things right and win them back?

            December 28, 2013 @ 7:57 pm
          • For privacy reasons, I don’t want to post any proof of our ticket correspondence. We gave you plenty of credit – not what you said. However you said the credit was worthless to you.

            We love to win our customers back and do our best on it, however at times we have to draw the line. Instead of working this out with us – you’re raging on a public forum over your personal dispute.

            At times things do happen and we may miss a user or 2 – we understand that. We refund or unhappy customers right away (during when sales operate) AND wish they come back.

            Nowhere did you say the credit wasn’t enough or that it could change you. We tried. If you’d like to talk to us you should have in your ticket.

            Yes, shipping was withhold for 14+ days stuck in Los Angeles. We even showed proof of this.

            As to time – each time you bump a ticket, it requires us to check onsite, which means the team stops work for 30mins coordinating meaning everyone takes longer to get servers.

            We reply when we have further information and we got back to you every time we can.

            NOTE: public holidays exists and a skeleton staff exists during Christmas and New Year – this occurs for most industries.

            I fully understand that even if we offered 1 year credit you wouldn’t return. You weren’t willing to discuss. However, if anyone else is unhappy and would be interested in returning on credit, we’d be happy to serve you.

            Just work with us – via ticket that is. This isn’t an official support channel.

            December 28, 2013 @ 9:29 pm
          • ZoomerX:

            To be honest, I have gotten further with you discussing this in public view than I have in the ticket. Also, I’m not raging (sorry if it comes across that way), and feel I have been relatively civil (with the exception of my comment here from last night).

            At no point did you show me proof of ANYTHING. All you did was tell me “We’re targeting your [server] for the end of the week” or that my server would be available “most likely this week” or “late this week” or “the end of the week.” At no point did you tell me that the shipment was stuck for LA in 14 days. Also, it shouldn’t take a single member of your team 5 minutes to update a ticket, let alone the entire team 30 minutes to do so.

            And no, last night I didn’t say that a credit could change my decision, but you guys didn’t offer either until AFTER you cancelled the order instead of even trying to deliver the server. I also didn’t say that it wasn’t enough, I said (and I quote directly from the ticket) “The $20 credit does me no good as I will likely never do business with your company again unless you guys make some serious changes.” This clearly indicates that I would consider doing business with you in the future, but that it would take effort of your guys part to fix the situation.

            Regardless, before my comments last night, you should have recognized that you had a customer who was obviously dissatisfied and made the effort to prevent them from leaving. Instead, you (as you admitted earlier) intentionally delayed delivery of my server (along with others) essentially since I had opened a ticket about it meaning that we didn’t have a “good working relationship.”

            Last night I did give you an ultimatum of sorts to deliver in 24 hours or I would leave (I even said that if it was plugged in and connected to the internet that I’d even load the OS myself through IPMI+RM), and you essentially said “Piss off” and cancelled/refunded my order instead of even making an attempt to deliver the server. Honestly, given what happened I was insulted and I snapped. Put yourself in my shoes, tell me would you not have been frustrated given what’s gone on?

            I was patient with you guys for 3 weeks, and all I got in return were empty promises to deliver my product “this week.”

            Regardless, this entire situation was handled badly on both sides, and I apologize for any mistakes or errors I’ve made and any wrongs I have committed against you through this debacle.

            As I said earlier, I’m willing to work with you guys, but it’s up to YOU to make a move, not me. Given what was said in your earlier reply it’s going to take a decent offer, but if you guys can make a decent offer and prove that you’re a better company than what I’ve seen this month, then by all means I will gladly try to do business with you. I’m not an unreasonable man, I understand that shit happens, and I’m willing to give you guys the benefit of the doubt in case I have stepped out of line. You say you’re willing to work with me, now SHOW it. You have my contact information, and given what’s been said here I’ll wait a little while to put my order in elsewhere, but not long.

            But if you feel that I have been/am being completely unreasonable, then continue to insult me and keep trying to cover your own ass. It’s quite clear now that I’m willing to work with you, and if you refuse to take the opportunity to do so it’s only going to harm your reputation in the end.

            December 28, 2013 @ 10:49 pm
          • Emails were definitely sent to all users over the situation. If ended up in your spam box by accident, please confirm. If you had mentioned that you missed those emails in the ticket maybe it would help.

            Again, please take your personal issues in your ticket. I can’t exactly recall who you are from this response sorry. We do have a lot of tickets. ZoomerX doesn’t correspond to a customer. Whilst I do remember a similar ticket being discussed internally, no we respect your privacy and it doesn’t link up this way.

            I will however review some tickets that might have had an issue.

            We never said any of what you said.

            Again, thanks for your feedback, but would have appreciate if you had taken your personal issues – which sounds like you might have had a poor response to a particular staff that replied to you back to the ticket itself. We have escalation procedures. This isn’t one.

            If every time there will be a problem and it needs to be escalated to a forum, I would say thanks for your time and let’s both move on.

    • Query Foundry consists of Cloud Shards and Fliphost at this point.

      Existing Fliphost staff is still in the team.

      Everything is the same if not better. I understand that changes have caused some issues but as with all changes they take a bit of time to work out.

      Thanks for the interest.

    > Hello,

    > This is an update on your dedicated server order with Fliphost and why it is taking longer than expected.

    > We intially expected to have more servers up by now however some of the hardware that came in was damaged and need to be sent out to be replaced. When the hardware was to come in heavy snow storms hit the area surrounding the data center not allowing them to enter the data center. You can be assured that we are doing everything in our power to get your server up ASAP. If everything goes well we should have a large number of the orders up by next week.

    > Thank you for your patience.

    I understand reviews are all good and support replies really quick, within minutes (really awesome), but you know, you cant surprise Russian with snow. We live here in 0.5m+ of snow all the time and never had any troubles because of that, so…

        Would be awesome if you specified that, because to most people “end of the week” means close of business Friday. Might be better to day “late this weekend” rather than “end of the week” to prevent confusion/frustration.

      • A lot of people have gotten servers. We might not have gotten to yours yet but we’re working hard on it. Sadly those that have gotten servers don’t comment :)

        We only really see negative comments here, but to put things in perspective, it’s not everyone – actually a minority. A lot of have and are getting provisioned.

      I ordered the 8th or 9th, still waiting, getting frustrated…

      Last week I was told “this week”, then “late this week”, then “end of the week”, and now I’ve been told “this week.”

      I finally got fed up when I got my bill for January and said “Just give me a date I can expect the server to be up, not a timeline, a specific date” and someone closed the ticket (for about the 5th or 6th time). Starting to wonder if this place is a scam.

      December 20, 2013 @ 4:31 pm | Reply
      • We are certainly not a scam I can say that for sure. To be honest we were a bit caught off when the offer was posted. It was posted much quicker than expected. Further delays came when a storm hit Dallas and UPS decided to then delay our shipments of hardware for 2 weeks.

        We are bringing servers up now and the delays now just how long it takes us to install and rack the hardware.

        As to the bill for january, this was an automated function of our panel, we did not try to bill you twice. Due dates and invoices will be updated once the server is delivered.

        I am sorry for the delays there have been and we hope to make it up to you in the future.

        -Alex

    Yup, after Harry’s response on the ticket I am definitely done. Continuing to accuse me of lying despite the ticket history clearly showing differently.

    Bottom line, I definitely would not recommend this company to anyone. I feel like I have been treated like dirt. They could offer me a server free for life right now and I wouldn’t accept it.

    Good luck to everyone else who ordered, hopefully you all actually get your servers and have better experiences than I have had.

  58. Gabe M:

    I placed my order for the sale on December 2nd, and shortly after placing the order I had inquired about an anticipated time frame for provisioning. I was originally told normal setup is approximately 2-3 days, but due to Thanksgiving, and recent sales, this may be pushed back a few days. Since then, I have submitted infrequent tickets due to their updates via email indicating delayed shipments, damaged hardware, holidays, and high volume orders from sales, and as such I have been comfortable waiting for my server.

    It has now been 1 month since I have placed my order, and now my tickets regarding setup time are going unanswered — something which they previously only took a few hours to respond. Furthermore, it appears that those having submitted no changes to hardware, as a colleague of mine had, received a server much more quickly. He only ordered additional IPs, but has already received his server approximately 2 weeks ago. I had made an upgrade from 1TB to 2TB hard drive due to the significant value. I suppose had I known making this upgrade would have delayed my order by over 2 weeks (and counting), I would have kept a stock setup.

    Now here I am after 1 month of waiting, having already received my first invoice along with multiple “overdue” notifications, without a server. I simply hope I can receive an update soon as this is certainly does not fare well, as is beginning to show the signs of an overwhelmed, and under resourced operation.
