      • I have been the victim of a spy by venetx
        This provider has been spying on [my SSH commands]
        I have requested a refund and has disappeared

        everything you write in the terminal this company knows it

          I can say myself that when I set up my VPS with Venetx instantly someone from another hosting company join my teamspeak server (that was only just created)

          If I wanted support I would come to Venetx. I do not appreciate having to secure my teamspeak with a password as soon as I create it. (When no one but myself had the IP and was not shared)

          So with Rat saying that SSH is been spied upon, I completely agree.

    “Victor started VENETX back in September.”

    How many months was that after Victor’s VPSDatabase was shut down and their customers were basically told to f*** themselves?

    Ah, LowEndTalk answered my question. It was a whole 3 months after.

      Oh wow! I had no idea! I was with VPSd last year when they closed. He refunded all of my money (I had just loaded my account for another year..) Support was dildos and the cluster my node was in went down frequently…but I did like the specs. High bandwidth, a ridiculously ambiguous AUP/TOS, etc. It was relatively free, but from what I understood a lot of DCMA, mailers, and mischief originated from their servers drew fire and legal threats aimed at VPSd.

      This is why we can’t have nice things. I had the same experience with Serv.st a few years ago. Amazing, cheap, unmetered, and ruined by the clowns abusing it.

    What’s the point of these “unmetered” offers recently? And what’s the point of an “unmetered” offer when in practice your account will be terminated or otherwise harrassed for exceeding a unknown threshold?

    February 7, 2015 @ 2:32 am | Reply
  11. @Tom
    Times are changing and most dedicated providers are giving bandwidth cheaper.
    And you shouldn’t be terminated if you follow all the rules. It’s pretty easy… Just dont DDoS (DOS), Torrent, RapidLeech, TOR.
    If most people bother to read the full TOS then they wouldn’t have a problem.

            I care about my clients and therefor I have nodewatch installed on our main node to stop abusers from trying to DoS, spam, or resource hog.
            Of course I get notifications when a VPS gets suspended for sending a lot of traffic and gives me a process list to see what was running.

      YOU are a spy
      He began spying since I went with 3 other than the WHMCS IPv4

      You should better make compatible automatic tickets with a plugin with solusVM rather than be spying, I don’t know what can I use a server that is being spied, can’t even use it backup…

      • Hello,
        We regret to inform you that our dedicated server that you were being hosted was suspended from our provider due to, too many abuse reports coming them it. We tried to keep the abuse in control by terminating anyone who we found guilty of it and closing the account but after last month there was way too many coming in and our provider just got tired of it yesterday and decided to just shut it down. The owner was making phone calls and e-mails trying to see if they could of reinstate the server and that we will try better to deal with the abuse. After hours of handling the issue, the decision was final and that the server is gone and not even 24 hours to let our clients retrieve their data, and for that we are terribly sorry.

        What we could offer you is a transfer to our other server which is still standing and with better performance to compensate the issue that occurred.

        Kind Regards,
        Vlad Volkov | Support Agent

    But they are taking money after they said they would credit the money once they were set up on Friday two weeks ago….
    Don’t give this guy a dime you want to see a value for – it will get lost in the Victor Enciso Black hole.

    Given this situation I think LEB should invalidate this offer and not list from this guy.
    I put some trust in LEB here knowing there are always risks, but this guy is just ridiculous.

      Alright – the server was set back up in California, which was unsatisfactory as I needed a host in E.U.
      However, I did ask for a refund of my balance and the month without service.
      This morning, that refund was processed in to my account balance and I will now go on with my life without uttering another negative word about this host.
      Thank you.

    I can say I am satisfied with this company I have been with them for about 3 months now and their servers have a very great speed.

    All I could say about them is. Pros ; Great Support, Instant Set-up, Friendly owner, fast. Cons : Takes sometimes to get answered ticket, price is little high, they only sell in Los Angeles.
