Updated Nov 2010: RentAVPS has not been connecting since mid-October 2010. Maybe Yomura Holdings have terminated this brand?

RentaVPS Via this WHT offer. RentaVPS, whom recently moved from BurstNET to Colo4Dallas, is offering 20% recurring discount with coupon code VPS20OFF. Takes 20% off their VPS256 plans you ended up paying only $4.76/month, and are getting

    They don’t have an AUP even though it is referred to in their “Legal” page.

    My billing account with them seems to have disappeared. I’ve contacted them but they haven’t replied yet (~25 hours ago), so hopefully the vps won’t expire, and hopefully they can get the billing account back up and going..

    I’ve been waiting on a reply to email since Sept. 29th. The account setup was instant but it didn’t give me an ip address for the vps. I’m not sure anyone is reading email.

    I received this email from them some hours ago:

    “Hi,

    I know some of you are currently experiencing issues with your service and others non-delivery of your service. We need to hear from you fast!

  6. It’s on their website now. Any idea whom has acquired RentaVPS?

    Edit: Looks like it’s Yomura Holding whom also bought Delimiter.us.

  7. So I’m with them for about two months and I can’t complain. Everything seems to work fine, tickets are answered in about 10 minutes. You can give them a try.

    What a week! We finally completed our expansion into Toronto, Canada today – we are pleased to be able to offer both shared and VPS hosting there immediately. Since RentaVPS was acquired by Yomura, we have been trying to make RentaVPS services available from all of Yomura’s locations in North America, Europe and Asia.

    Avoid this company!!!

    I got two servers from them at two data centers. One has an issue probably with the kernel where you can not run iptables. Great, internet server without a firewall.

    It has been 5 days now, yes 5 days, with no response via there support system. Six tickets, no response to any of them.

    They boast on their web page that they answer support request in under 1 hour and actually fix the problem. I guess with their math, 5 days is still under the 1 hour mark.

    More Updates.

    ## Pay Pal Warning
    #######################

    The scamming VPS companies like RentaVPS know that if you pay via paypal they don’t have to provide anything and if you make a claim with paypal, paypal will automatically deny your claim. I am talking instantly. I call in and found out this is true. Paypal “can’t” make a ruling of claims like this so it is instantly denied.

    Stick with Mastercard or Visa as you have some protection and stay far away from RentaVPS.

    Yes; stay away.

    I had a VPS with them that started having network trouble in june. I opened several tickets without any response. It eventually expired (they made sure their billing worked), and I opened a ticket regarding getting a backup of my VPS since I couldn’t back it up when they were having network trouble. No response to any of these tickets, they closed them with no response. I re-opened all of my unanswered tickets multiple times trying to get some response at all, but they were actively closed with no response every time.

    Their VPS just stopped working, and they had the most terrible customer service I have ever received.

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.
