      Hello,

      This is Ryan from Kaiju Hosting. My apologies for the confusion, Bitcoin payments are temporarily disabled due to an issue with our payment processor. You can e-mail their support at support@kaiju.cc for assistance with bitcoin payments!

      Thanks,

      Hello,

      We do not offer SolusVM at this time, all VPS services are unmanaged. However we are here to help if you have any issues with your VPS or would like to pick a different OS, or if you need root password reset etc. Just submit a support ticket and we can assist!

      Most certainly! We love custom solutions. You just need to allow us a short bit to install that manually if we do not have a template for it.

        C’mon with the “please check your spam” when you know full well that you didn’t contact me until after you posted here. I waited over three hours from payment to start a ticket. I received auto-replies for that. No actual interaction for another 7 hours when you noticed I posted here. You guys dropped the ball. Own it. That wouldn’t be a big deal. Lying about it and offering a 50% refund for a year service that I cancelled hours before you even turned it on does not inspire confidence in the new guy on the block.

    Avoid at all costs! After 8 hours of waiting for tech support with no server I gave up and requested cancellation. Another three hours later I received the first response. They refused my cancellation and started the server. They would offer me a 50% refund for a year service they started three hours after I cancelled. I had to dispute with my credit card.

    If you’re ok with no front-end, no support, and a creepy business model then by all means say yourselves $5 with these guys. Otherwise look elsewhere for a reliable service.

    I’ve been a customer on kaiju for a while and i can say their services are quite good, especially the support. I’d definitely recommend even if it’s for the support alone.

  20. Robert:

    Ordered a server and can understand getting a ton of business and needing time to activate the servers. Biggest problem is there is absolutely no control over the server. No reboot, no password change, no OS reinstalls other than I believe KVM. It even took some time to find my login information since most who use the CP have the ’emails’ option where I can see all communications. Instead I found it in the ticketing system. The service itself seems decent enough at the moment but a reboot option is pretty critical and the same reason I dropped a dedicated server this week… as good as they are having to ticket a reboot or OS reinstall and having to wait hours for something to happen don’t really cut it when most others do. Still deciding if I will keep it past the renewal period even at $3.

      Robert,

      Thank you for your feedback. A custom panel is in the works, as our goal is to avoid cookie-cutter frameworks that can be launched on any network. Our goal is a custom panel without the use of WHM or SolusVM. However in the meantime our support team tries to be as responsive as possible for anything that you need. We are a small team and are working on big things for Kaiju Hosting’s future.

    Hi! Interested in this offer, however, does IPv6 “on request” mean that IPv6 will cost extra?

      It does not cost extra. 1x IPv6 address is provided upon request.

      • I know the feeling, Pavel. Same situation. Paid for service 3 days ago. Created Ticket #2616 after 24 hours. It’s now been 48 hours and not a single peep from them.

        Based on other feedback here, I think I’m going straight to my credit card company to dispute this.

        They are probably a small operation. I get that. They don’t promise instant provisioning. So I’m not expecting even same-day provisioning.

        But no communications whatsoever? Does Kaiju understand that this is the exact same behavior we see from fraudsters? Take the money and shut up?

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.
