LowEndDivorce Poll: Why Have You Broken Up With Providers in the Past?


At first, it was true love.

The storage screamed, CPUs leapt to process your commands, and the network made you feel like you were in the datacenter.  You raved to your friends.  You recommended…sometimes without an affiliate code even!

But then there was an outage.  A double-billed invoice.  You opened a ticket to ask a question and got a brusque, borderline rude response.

Soon you realized things just weren’t the same.  And then one afternoon, an offer on LowEndBox caught your eye and you decided it was time to move on.  Cancellation Type?  Immediate.  Reason for Cancellation?  Don’t get me started.

So of the services you have used in the past, which of the following reasons was the cause for your breakup?  Mark as many as you like, but let’s base it on your actual experiences not what you might do in a hypothetical.

What are the main things that cause a LowEndDivorce?  Let’s find out!

Which of the following have been grounds for divorce in the past (your ACTUAL EXPERIENCE)?

    I’ve switched providers in the past when I found servers closer to me, from a respected provider, at a similar cost.

    one case of terrible support incompetence, one case of overcomplicated service management (required to change IP in a weird manner to setup rDNS correctly), one case of provider’s cessation of operation

    had my mail server running on a machine from hyper expert. I was really happy. then they started tunneling all smtp traffic through their own smtp server from one day to the other without warning. I tried to get an exception for my servers(considering i had been a customer with them for over a year, follow best practices when it comes to sending mail, thus have no abuse complaints and am not featured on any spam blacklists(mostly because my business doesnt spam). Was a shame I had to relocate, but being forced to send my email through their relay is a no go. Its enough that the NSA grabs them at the router :-)
