      They could have a money laundererfinancial intermediary in a supported country, similar to IPAP’s relationship with VolumeDrive, et cetera.

      Or they could buy from one of the thousands of OVH no-value-added-resellers.

      Either way, I pretty much stopped reading (and caring) once I read “OVH” in the first sentance…

    @Chief what is the significance of the relation? I can not find ‘Pintwire’ anywhere on LEB is there something bad about it?

    SO why are they posting this when a related company has nulled whmcs?

    February 8, 2012 @ 5:26 am | Reply
    • It -was- nulled; now it’s not anymore. So that’s why he stated to take pre-cautions.

        That makes it so much better? :) I thought the rules were that if it were nulled at any time you were banned from here for life.

        • Well, HostingBix is not the same as PintWire; so I would assume they have a clean record at the moment?

          February 8, 2012 @ 6:24 am | Reply
      • HostingBix’s WHMCS is not nulled, it is valid and current. We have only mentioned to exercise caution as they are a completely new VPS provider having registered their domain in November.

        IE: Don’t go prepaying 6 months in advance at this stage.

    @Chief the whois information on the domain names is concrete evidence that this is the same owner. Please check the screenshots. Phone number is the same, country the same, city the same, names the same… how much more evidence is needed?

          Amit Jha when admins start to follow such dumb requests we don’t get all possible informations, findings, etc… regarding hosts. Some of us prefer to see them posted and then to decide either we want to go with them or not. Just like always. Any information is better than no information at all. Beside that who ware you to decided in name of others and request web filtering for rest of readers?

          Anyway, thanks for research and posted info. This is helpful. Web filtering demands aren’t.

    Do NOT list any provider like this!!!!

      Better to list them and have us emphasise the fact that it’s a scam. LEB does well in a google search. ;)

        Finally someone with some common sense here. I agree with Gary.
        Bounch of newbs + some company representative screaming not to post something.. hell yeah! You people just use brains when you order something and you will be fine most of the time (and let also us others to make own opinion seeing such threads instead removing them).

        • Yes i m dumb because i went with hostrail and lost clients,
          a lots of email fight with publicdomainregistry i got my three domains from hostrail back due to hostrail scam.because a lots of comment on this blog regarding hostrail i purchased vps servers ($30/month) but stuck with scam finally..i know i m nothing but i m a customer who faced scam.
          Right now i have a server($25/month) with backup (another company) with virpus ..i really feel better that i didn’t read any comments about virpus before purchasing.

          so spirit that’s why i wrote this comment…

          Of course, but do you blame LEB site for your own mistakes? For your lack of responsability? I did some mistakes too but they are solely my own responsability. No one force me into anything and I am the one who decided to order and pay service.
          Usually when I see interesting offer from to me unknown company I try to find out more about it. I check WHT, I check LEB, google about it, etc. Any info is better than noone. If people don’t review it, if people don’t talk about it many things aren’t discovered. So rather than demand for something not to be posted try to read, to research, try to find out more… and use some common sense before you put your clients blindly to some random unknown new host.
          Don’t blame source of informations for your bad decisions but rather learn to use informations to make better decision.

          If you would look at my history I have never asked anyone to not post something here….. I thought these guys were going to give better quality offers from the way they talked, and is this blog not against the rules for posting?

          @Amit – Yeah it sucks when you get scammed. I had a Hostrail VPS as well, but I’ve never put anything critical to my business on a provider I wasn’t 100% sure about. Hostrail were a bit iffy from the start. If a Hostrail VPS was your source of income, you’re either greedy, cheap or both. Pay peanuts, get monkeys.

          Think of offers posted here not as recommendations, but as a heads-up. It’s crowdsourcing the research part that you want the site owners to do. If they did research on every provider, they’d never have time to post all the interesting offers. As soon as a post is made on LEB, a dozen of us start digging and we usually find something. :)

  12. You can’t decide by reading comments
    virpus has a lot of bad reviews but my website is working good and support response is within 1 hour..
    then how can i believe on lowendbox comments after hostrail scams(getting more than 100 good comments)…i m not saying to stop posting information but i have requested to post information with solid proof.

      Virpus had their share or problems already, they lost their whole client database or something, can’t remember well but something happend to them although they recovered from it..

        yes i think also before but i m satisfied with support response and for fight with scam
        i do daily backup on another hoster (Backup space from webbycart)

  13. @Gary do you think $30/month is cheap ? are you sick ?

    February 9, 2012 @ 4:55 am | Reply
    • Gary:

      It depends what that $30 actually bought you. Either way, Hostrail were a cheap provider, offering bottom rung services. If your business model necessitated relying on such a shitty service, it’s time to think up a new business model.

  14. i purchased everything cpanel, rvsitebuilder and softculaous with hostrail vps , website was running good speed i did everything for my clients but what was the result? !!!!!!!!!Scam!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    i m not selling hosting at big price but for a small price for example $30/year(20GB space,50Gb bandwidth) unlimited domains reseller package..

    why do you make dead pool section?
    why don’t you make investigation pool section?

    i m not expert gary and i m not spamming LEB but i said which i face in past..

    • Gary:

      Like I said, the posts that get posted ARE the investigation pool service. If people jump in with both feet without researching, that’s their tough luck. I’ve done it myself. I learned the hard way. I still wasn’t dumb enough to use it for production though.

  16. I don’t understand all the hate for this company, It wasnt a scam, I used these guys for a month, got some cheap upgrades via a phonecall to india.

    However, these are now dead-pooled because their site is offline and paypal can’t actually “contact” the seller, nor is the servers up. NO prior warning, disputed both payments and looking hopeful for both. :]

        Hahaha yeah. Most of these dodgy providers are analogous to ponzi schemes, so the early customers will think everything’s ok by the very nature of the scam.

        • I actually enjoyed using this provider, however he’s disabled his phone and you can’t get in touch.

          I should of known, however, he was leaneant to my 1TB+ usage /month BandWidth, where as other VPS hosters have been rather sceptical.

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.
