Quite a few problem with typical starter provider — no SSL on ordering pages, all NS on the same server, etc. Nor is pricing competitive however.

    i happen to like the 404’d award image, $5/month unlimited disk space, lack of ssl, address listed is http://www.sacramentoconventioncenter.com/venues/exhibitHall/ (lol), and what appears to be a phone number that isn’t valid

    oh, and the billing system is hosted non-securely on a shared server with hundreds of other sites? i can’t wait, sign me up plz

    > We offer the very best prices for registering domains.

    Nonsense, the first few TLDs I tried were cheaper at namecheap.

    The 25% off seems to work for all their VPS packages btw, but cheap or not I wouldn’t trust these guys with my money, they seem pretty clueless all round.

      I’m starting to doubt that the staff are actually named Jason and James and that they’re US based

        How can you doubt a company that received a testimonial from the illustrious John Smith?

        From the TOS: “VPSBD not allow background-running programs.” Besides the Failglish, isn’t that a rather, um, broad restriction?

        • And they’ll be back in a few months complaining how their service has died or the company’s site is off line or any number of other problems.

          And we’ll be pointing to these comments saying “We told you so.”

          Only thing that’s missing now is the RLShosting irc crowd making distasteful comments about me.

          “Told you so” doesn’t work with people though, look at people who suffer data loss due to drive failure or whatever. We’ve been banging on at them about backups for decades, and they still don’t bother.

          But of course, we’re just being picky, or biased against these providers, right?

          Correct spelling is free and requires nothing more than a spell checker. If a host can’t even manage that, what hope is there?

        That’s not wrong, using a VPN to “browse the hole world” is code for what you to do access restricted porn sites while at work.

        But yeah, their site’s a joke. They could’ve had it proofread for next to nothing by a native English speaker (no way these guys are native speakers, no way whatsoever) and then we’d have had much less to nitpick about.

  7. Hello all,

    I read all the conversion, quite negative impression about us. Its quite not acceptable, I will clearly explain about our website.
    Our website design was previously different, now we changed as to add new services into it. So, the website is not fully developed yet. I apologize for that mistake I did.
    We are in this business from last 5 years, we were working with Duomarkets, and I guess everyone who dealing with web hosting knows what duomarkets history, no need to recall all.
    We have completely separated and started with our own server at start of 2011. Even we are new still hosted many customer successfully, and all are happy with us. And form my side I assure you that you will get for what you pay. We have anytime money back guarantee! So, no need to worry for the services if anytime you feel that our service is not stable or acceptable to you just send us the cancellation request to us we will refund you for unused days. No cheating will done from our side, and as we are new, so we just need the customer satisfaction and trust for us to grow more. We want to earn reputation for our company not a negative marks for us.

    Thank you all!

    • You’ve been in business for 5 years and can’t get it together to get a website up and running?

      not a negative marks for us.

      Shouldn’t have sent in an offer to LEA then.

      WHT and other forums offer space for reviews of websites. Would have taken 2 seconds to put up a request and had folks look at it. Then you wouldn’t have gone through all of this.

      An aside to LEA and others. Maybe we should start doing website reviews over on LET. Heck I’ll go as far as making them as a requirement before any offer is posted but I don’t think you’ll go that far. Would clear up a lot of these offers from folks with sites with dozens of errors.

      Why would you put your website up before it was finished? Why wouldn’t you proofread it?

      • They need the money to continue services maybe?

        They didn’t realize that their website was in such sad shape?

        Elvis and/or Bigfoot told them to do so?

        They didn’t think it was important?

        They don’t think much of the mental capacity of the typical LEB user?

        Impress that hot red head them met in chem class?

  8. They’re giving paid for reviews according to their facebook:

    https://www.facebook.com/vpsbd.net/posts/158654810882251

    I’d seriously question any review that gets posted about them anywhere. The WHT mods are already aware.

    • We manage only VPN services through facebook page, and the offer about review is only for VPN service. The review is allowed of the clients who are already using our VPN service, new clients are not allowed to review us without using our VPN services.

        Oh that makes it OK then. No, wait. It really doesn’t. Giving your customers incentive to review you is just wrong, since for them to be able to make use of the incentive you have to be able to work out who they are. Since you can work out who they are, are they going to be honest, or will they sugar coat it?

      “Vpsbd you can contact our sales person for India at navneet.b1990@gmail.com

      What’s the betting that Navneet is more than just a sales person, and is actually “Jason” or “James”?

          Ok, that makes sense. From your posts here and on facebook it’s pretty clear that you’re not a native English speaker, which I would expect from someone called Jason Willis.

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.
