    I picked up a OpenVZ box on their last offer and just picked up a Windows box :)

    Been using them since the new year, and really don’t have any complaints to share. Their service works like a charm, and the customer service has always been responsive, detailed and attentive to my questions.

  4. Dragonhead:

    Hello Jason,

    Two main questions:

    I am highly considering the “OpenVZ Linux VPS – 2GB” package due to the 5TB of bandwidth. The main purpose of getting a VPS would be to transfer data between Google Drives (using rclone). Would using the month’s quota of bandwidth in a short period of time be considered a violation of the TOS? Secondly, if I need more bandwidth, is it available to purchase, or possibly, if after I have my system set-up I’m only using a fraction of the CPU/ram/hard drive space, would it be possible to exchange this for the additional bandwidth down the road?

    The shopping cart page asks for a hostname. If I’m not going to be hosting anything for the web to access, is this needed when signing up? (I don’t know what I would put there.)

    Thanks

    -DH

    • Hi Dragonhead, great questions! We have several clients utilizing services for similar purposes, I encourage you to utilize our services for such an application and I foresee no issue whatsoever (no problem if you need to, or end up, utilizing your bandwidth in a short window of time). We can certainly provide additional bandwidth, if needed, and I will work with you on your requirements (I’m open to the idea you proposed of adjusting bandwidth/resource requirements, if or when needed).

      For hostname, just go ahead and make something up (or just use server.server.com) … this is really just a formatting nuance (for our system) and it can always be changed in the future if you do decide to host anything.

      Please feel free to let me know if there are any other questions I can address, I look forward to working with you!

    Got a confirmation email, but my credentials are not working. I tried again and again and again until I got the message:

    “You Have Been Blacklisted – Contact Support”

    When I try to login via SSH I get:

    Permission denied, please try again.

    I know I am using the right password, because they sent the password back in the email.

    I will contact support and see what they’ll do about it. I’ll let you know how they handle my request.

    • Erik:

      Still no word from support and reset password feature doesn’t seem to do anything. No wait, it does, but somehow they’ve managed to configure it so that it’s filtered as spam. Reseting the password was however useless, since I am still blacklisted.

      • Erik:

        Now I have managed to login to their portal. I used my phone since that one has a different IP and isn’t black listed. Logging in returns a nice little JSON response:

        {“success”:1,”status”:1}

        I’m not sure what they are expecting me to do with tha.

        • Hi Erik,

          I apologize for any inconvenience this caused yesterday, and for any delays while our support team addressed this matter — I am having this issue also looked at by our dev/QA team so that the possibility of recurrence is eliminated.

          I’m also sorry to hear that our email got trapped in your spam box, though this is unusual and indicative that your settings are effective but perhaps a little aggressive and warrant some consideration to ensure that important emails (like ones from us) are not getting stuck there. I know from my own personal experience this happens to me occasionally, but again, I’m sorry this occurred.

          In the future, if there is ever a delay received or perceived with our support, feel free to contact me directly at jason@woothosting.com and I will oversee the addressing of any matters. Support delays and whatnot are extremely atypical and I like to know when they occur so I can address affected clients accordingly.

          If there is anything I can do for you at this point, please contact me directly and let me know — we appreciate your business.

    Finally managed to get the portal working on the phone and was able to change the root password from there. I’m logged in to my server, but that was a lot harder than it should have been. Very frustrating experience and still no word from support.

    February 23, 2017 @ 11:34 pm | Reply
    • Erik:

      After having used the box for a little while, it seems to live up to my expectations. Hopefully, I was just unlucky with the password incident.

      I got a response from support that I had been removed from the blacklist and they’d reset my password back to my original password. I don’t really like that they are storing my password in plain text, but at least I’m not using it for any other services.

        Please feel free to open a ticket to my attention, or email me directly at jason@woothosting.com

    • I didn’t have this issue, and I’m pretty happy with my experience with Woot so far. I think you may be confused between their WHMCS and their SolusVM panel. Those are two different platforms. You only log into WHMCS to open a support ticket or pay your bill, that’s it.

      Out of curiosity how long ago did you contact support? I submitted a ticket to Woot requesting the free bonus, and got a response back just under 45 minutes. I’m accustomed to faster response times (as I used to work for a 24×7 hosting company myself), but I understand they’re probably busy from the response they’re getting from this promotion. 45 minutes is still acceptable to me.

  10. Pulled the trigger on 3 of the openVZ 1GB $14/yr’s, VPS’s were activated quickly. Installed and configured squid on ‘em like a breeze. A+ for the speedy network!

    I hope the price will stay the same on renewal?

    Unfortunately, the OpenVZ kernel is not compatible with docker. So in the end, I went through all this trouble for nothing. I’ll check with support if there is anything they can do about that, otherwise I will have to ask for my money back, I’m afraid.

      If you want to run Docker, you need to run it on a KVM VM…

      February 24, 2017 @ 4:09 pm | Reply
    • Hi Erik,

      As ethancodes mentioned, a KVM based VPS is what would be required to run Docker successfully with one of our VPS services — while OpenVZ with some modification and some luck, can be setup to work with Docker (as some resources you and I have both found on the internet — according to your support ticket, and the internet state), OpenVZ + Docker is commonly problematic. While I wish I had a solution today that was OpenVZ based that would work with Docker successfully, and permanently, at this time, the most cost-effective Docker-compatible option we have is with a KVM virtualization-based VPS VM.

      We will be making some ongoing improvements to our VPS line-up, and finding a reliable OpenVZ-based Docker solution is on our project plate. Such implementations, when stable, and available, are announced immediately through our newsletter and through the “announcement” section of our client portal, however, we also will likely mention the compatibility in subsequent specials, when available.

      Again, I apologize that our OpenVZ implementation is not currently compatible with Docker, I see that per your ticket in our support system that we are awaiting your feedback and direction as to how you wish to proceed based upon this information.

      Please feel free to update the ticket, or contact me directly, I want to make sure you are taken care of.

      Thank you!

    Just got your KVM 1GB in Los Angeles and while I was happily surprised of how quick and good everything went, I’m now facing a real disagreement: It seems I am not allowed to start from any – even simple – official ISOs, I am not allowed to mount any distribution.
    I’m kinda new with KVM and I may be wrong but it seems to be a feature everywhere else.

    • ethancodes:

      I noticed that they have some pre-made templates in their OS selection, but they sadly didn’t have a FreeBSD template handy. They mounted a custom FreeBSD iso to my VM, I just had to ticket in. I was then able to finish up the install via VNC

      So far so good with these folks.

    • Hi Ben!

      I’m happy things initially went quick and well — but I’m sorry to hear about the disagreement you faced!

      Not to worry though, we have a solution in place.

      While we try to keep handy all of the most popular templates requested (CentOS 6, CentOS 7, Ubuntu 12.04, Ubuntu 14.04, Ubuntu 16.04, Debian 8, Fedora 23, etc), we know this doesn’t suit everyone’s needs and you might need something different. In this case, because KVM is your own environment, we can mount your own ISO image to your server.

      To do this, just open a support ticket and provide us with a direct download link to the iso that you wish to be mounted —

      If there’s anything else I can address or assist you with, please let me know!

    If I go with the 1G KVM option, is there an option to add 1G more RAM? If so, how much will that cost?

    February 26, 2017 @ 5:41 pm | Reply
    • Hi Eli,

      We can certainly provide that KVM special with a 2GB RAM allocation — what you’d want to do is sign up with the 1GB, and then open a ticket (make to my attention) for the 1GB upgrade. The additional cost for the secondary 1GB of RAM would be just $19 for the year with this special. Effectively, that plan, with 2GB RAM (everything else being the same) would be just $49/year. This $19/year amount is discounted and would normally be higher, but it is what we will offer while this special is still available.

      Feel free to let me know if you have any other questions before signing up =) We look forward to an opportunity to work with you!

    – Instant Setup

    is a stretch to say the least. Over an hour between payment confirmation and acknowledgement. Another half an hour and my server is still pending. Not really a huge deal if they can get this ball rolling soon, but that word…I do not think it means what you think it means.

    February 26, 2017 @ 7:27 pm | Reply
    • Hi Anthony, thanks for signing up and my apologies for the trouble —

      Initial payments that are made with a credit card are screened by 2CheckOut (the merchant service that we use for accepting credit card payments) — sometimes, they hold the initial funds for a lengthly time before dispersing to us… but once they do, the related invoice is automatically marked as paid and the auto-provisioning of services (the “instant set up”) is triggered.

      While PayPal and Bitcoin payments get processed much faster (almost immediately), credit card payments can result in a delay (sometimes slight, sometimes not so slight) due to the nature of the screening process that is performed by 2Checkout review team, before we receive your funds.

      I do see that your services are active now, but I do apologize for any inconvenience that was incurred by the initial delay caused by 2CheckOut. That being said, we sincerely value your business and please feel free to let me know if there’s anything I can do to assist you.

        • Anthony, no worries! Each payment method has it’s own associated time-frame — and sometimes 2CheckOut is faster/slower than other times. Glad things are sorted out, nonetheless :)

        Side-note: Even though we have some rather large node arrays, we mitigate some of the overhead and improve performance by using enterprise drives with good amounts of cache, as well as high-end RAID cards active with CacheVault for further improve the read/write speeds of the mirrored/striped RAID-10 arrays.

        March 2, 2017 @ 12:39 am | Reply
    • Hi Max,

      Our current KVM and OpenVZ offerings (and these specials) utilize enterprise class hard drives that are in RAID-10 arrays. The RAID array does include some additional caching that does improve performance beyond what you would conventionally receive in a RAID-10 array (and of course, from non-striped drives). Read/write speeds (both sequential and random) are consistently strong on nodes and monitored by our staff.

      In the future, we will be offering SSD-based VPS options (we’re planning to offer both OpenVZ and KVM versions). Once this is deployed, we’ll be making announcements and providing specials to the community here.

      If there is anything we can assist you with now, or any questions I can address – please let me know or send me a direct email (jason@woothosting.com)

      We’re excited for an opportunity to host you =)

    Got one of these earlier this month. It’s pretty fast. I mean, I can’t even reliably max out the connection for any length of time because it just transfers so fast. Only downside is that I’m having some VPN connection issues, it looks like something’s not enabled on their end, but I haven’t gotten around to looking into it further yet. Two thumbs up!

Unfortunately, that $14/year promotion is based upon OpenVZ technology, that would not be compatible with ServerPilot — you would need to grab one of the KVM-based promos, as these will allow you to have the kernel that is necessary (version >= 3.2) on Ubuntu LTS 16.04 x64 or 14.04 x64.

        I’m here to help any way I can, please let me know if you have any other questions :)

    • Hi Harsh Kumar!

      We have many people that are currently running ServerPilot successfully upon our VPS infrastructure, however, you will need to opt for a KVM based VPS instance so that you can have the proper kernel that is required in order to run ServerPilot (a kernel that is equal or newer to 3.2) — Our OpenVZ packages would not fulfill the requirements. Full requirements can be found here: https://serverpilot.io/community/articles/server-requirements.html

      Please feel free to let us know if you have any additional questions.

  21. I have one more question… Will this price remain lifelong??? I mean aren’t they limited to first year itself… Right?

    March 1, 2017 @ 10:39 pm | Reply
    • Hi Harsh,

      Any promotion that you acquire will be locked in with that pricing for any future renewals. The pricing does not ever change or go up. The rate you pay the second or any future year will be the same discounted rate as you sign up with. No hidden pricing increases.

      Feel free to reach out to me if you have any additional questions — we appreciate your interest and are here to help!

    Looking at the KVM VPS Promo Special – 1GB for $30 annual. On your page with the cart, LEB Bonus: Free Shared cPanel Hosting Account After Ordering! Can that bonus not be taken? I’d rather keep my system as lean as possible and manually admin things through ssh.

    March 9, 2017 @ 10:12 am | Reply
    • John:

      Oops, I think I might have misread and misunderstood. At the top of the LEB posting, “This offer includes a FREE shared hosting account with 10GB storage, 150GB bandwidth, and 2 domains per order.” That shared cPanel hosting account is not cPanel on the VPS that is ordered.

      March 9, 2017 @ 10:20 am | Reply
      • Hi John,

        My apologies for the confusion, but you got things sorted out and you’re correct – the free shared hosting account that accompanies the VPS offers is not upon the VPS VM – it is a completely separate and stand-alone service that is just an added perk on top of any of these specials.

    All OpenVZ use a shared IP with port allocation?
    Or is with full dedicated IP address?
    There will be some way to use A-record to point to a domain otherwise?

    I have already met few issues on your system before accessing my server.
    1. The language system is broken. You will unable to access your account if you have changed the system language due to lost of language files.
    2. The cPanel promotion doesn’t work. With my account logged in, using the provided promotion code still prompt “You must have an active product/service to use this code”
    3. C2O payment is slow, it took me 13 minutes to get payment confirmation and I was wondering if my payment fails. Though I think this is not your issue.
    4. I can’t see my 30 IPv6 addresses in SolusVM and in the system, where are they located?

    • Hi Hopkins,

      I apologize for any delays and frustrations — and I hope that, aside from these matters, you had a good weekend. I do see that our technicians have escalated your ticket to my attention for further review as it involves sensitive account-related inquiries, and I do hope you were able to receive and review my response back to you, early this morning.

      For the sake of clarification:

      (Regarding Chinese Language issues) — We use a software called WHMCS for our billing and support system and there is an unfortunate temporary bug with their software where it is causing issues for users who change their language to Chinese. We are actively working with their support team to resolve this matter. In the meantime I have updated your account to the English language and you should be able to log in without any further issues. (That being said, if you haven’t already, please feel free to log in with your credentials at this time)

      (Regarding 2CO delays) — I do apologize for the delay, and you’re correct, this is the nature of their system and something that we’re not able to avoid. Essentially, they manually review transactions (this allows us to accept credit card payments, as they do a rather effective job at reducing fraudulent credit card sign-ups, and therefore, they allow us to offer credit card as a payment method — and as you can imagine, it is a popular payment method — but in this industry, since payments are accepted globally, the prevalence of fraudulent activity is a real concern to service providers).

      So while sometimes they’ll hold the initial funds for a period of time before dispersing to us, as soon as funds are released, the related invoice is automatically marked as paid and the auto-provisioning of services (the “instant set up”) is triggered.

      As a side-note worth mention (for obtaining services through us, as well as through other providers that similarly have 2CO as an option along with the options of PayPal and Bitcoin) — both PayPal and Bitcoin payments get processed much faster (almost immediately), the delay with 2Checkout is just due to the nature of the screening process that is performed by 2Checkout review team.

      Lastly (Regarding IPv6 allocations) — we do provide IPv6 address space, at no cost (on supported services) but we do allocate them upon request since the vast majority of clients we have do not require IPv6 space (and though it’s rather abundant at this time, IPv4 space was thought to be abundant at one time as well… so to avoid confusion for those who do not wish to use and manage IPv6 space… and to make sure we have plenty of space to give to clients who do want it… we just ask that you contact us for it. I do see that IPv6 space has been allocated to your VPS at this time.

      I’m going to review your account and the ticket resolution of your reported items internally to see where things could have been handled better (either faster, or communicated more effectively) so that we can avoid an issue like this from happening again in the future — such delays and initial experience are atypical, so I’ll reach out to you directly via our ticketing system as well once I’ve completed this.

      I do appreciate you reaching out (as well as contacting me directly) — I do want to make sure you’re aware that we do sincerely value your business and that you can contact me in the future with any questions or matters that may arise.

      Thank you again,

I’d like to investigate this matter further to see specifically what occurred, so that we can clearly identify the cause of why these suspensions occurred. I’m certainly not taking sides here and I want to make sure that there isn’t something miscalibrated that is flagging and suspending processes that should not be (as you can imagine, if something like this does exist, it’s likely affecting others, and might affect clients in the future).

      Please feel free to reach out to me directly at either jason@woothosting.com or by ticket (please mention my name so the ticket is flagged to me). If at all possible, I’d like to remedy this situation for you so that if nothing else, you’re at least assured that we appreciate and value you.

    Like some others on this page I am experiencing severe i/o issues that make the VPS practically unusable. I’m going to ask for a refund. Here goes my story:

    I bought a OpenVZ Linux VPS – 2GB (see above) a week ago. Initially it looked fine. Network speeds were decent, but commands were executed unusually slowly. Manpages took 8 full seconds to open, and installing anything via apt gives a very long delay before anything starts to download. I did not rule it as a disk issue at first and thought it was just terminal latency since I was connecting from Asia, but my previous provider in Switzerland (even further away) did not have such issues. Fine, that’s just a small issue, I thought. I went ahead to install my LAMP server, but did not deploy any projects yet.

    Later that week I was tasked to make a one-off simple raffle system for a company event. Small project, I finished it in a day, and put it up on this server I initially bought for personal use since I didn’t want to use company servers for this because it was overkill (and did not have authorization to). I deployed the project the night before the event where it was going to be used, and it looked fine. Everything was going to be fine. Or so I thought.

    During the day of the event where the my project was used, I experienced horrible latencies when inserting records into the local mysql server. And by horrible, I mean it took MINUTES at most to insert a record into a table with only 3 columns. On average it took 30seconds to insert. When I was lucky it took less than 5 seconds like a normal server should. When I was not, it took 5 full minutes. It did not make any sense for such a lightweight project (not using a CMS like wordpress or anything) on a fresh install on a instance with 2 cores and 2.5GB RAM.

    I was screwed. I had about two hundred records to key in within the next hour and having each record take minutes to insert was a no-go. I tried to do a reboot (that also had like a 3 minute delay), and the server went completely inaccessible for 15 minutes via ssh. I had to login into SolusVM and use their web console to try to debug. Twice. And nothing seemed to be broken when I logged in via the console. sshd and httpd claimed to be running but I couldnt connect via my ssh client or neither is httpd serving my webpages. It only automagically revived itself after 20 minutes or so.

    By then I was frustrated and desperate beyond all doubt. I immediately logged into my company’s Amazon AWS, created an EC2-instance and a RDS database instance, dumped my project there and got it to work fine. All in the span of 15 minutes. While my VPS on woothost was STILL trying to insert a record or two into the database. AWS basically saved my ass that day.

    After my horrible experience I decided to do some simple benchmarking. The standard

    dd if=/dev/zero of=diskbench bs=1M count=1024 conv=fdatasync

    yielded 11MBPS. Which still raises my eyebrows because I bet 11MBPS is still enough to not take minutes to insert one record into a database. There’s either some serious overselling going on or there’s something bugging the server machines that the engineers at WootHosting are overlooking.

    WootHosting’s motto, according to their website and logo, is “Keeping your business alive”. Well, it almost killed mine. I am choosing not to take out my frustration on Customer Support because I believe the nice guys at Customer Support don’t deserve to be raged at, and it’s not their fault anyway. And this jason guy in this thread sounds very friendly anyway. I will open a ticket and ask for a refund. I caution you all prospective buyers to test the waters carefully before deploying anything mission critical (which is something I should have done anyway, my bad). Learn from my mistakes.

    I purchased a Windows VPS. I cannot login to it with the credentials provided. No where in the members section of Woot Hosting can one change their Windows VPS password. I contacted support explaining that I could not login and was receiving authentication errors. i received a reply several hours later telling me that RDP is enabled on my server. Thats great, but as the email clearly stated, the issue is the credentials are not being accepted. So I replied to the ticket informing so and asked how to go about changing the password or obtaining help logging in. Its been several hours an no reply. So far, I am very dissatisfied with my purchase. Mostly as I havent yet to be able to use it!

    • Andy B:

      Update: Finally have working login credentials. However, the VPS is horribly slow. RDP loses connection often. Simply loading a browser in the VPS pretty much cripples it to where its almost useless. The desktop is showing that “This version of windows needs activated.” So I am not too sure about if their server software is properly licensed. I have a linux VPS with Woot and it is great. However, I am afraid I would have to recommend against their windows VPS. Its simply not worth it.
