o upgrade. No one could tell me what level I should upgrade to based on the traffic the server was receiving, so I just bumped it up to the next level. The pricing ended up being more than what they told me it would be. So when I realized I would upgrade yet again to the next level, I was talking to their sales support and asked for an EXACT quote of the price I would have to pay if I upgraded. The salesperson said "Considering recent your renewal invoice payment- those funds can pay for the first month of hosting, leaving you $6.02 credit for the renewal invoice" This is a direct quote. So imagine my confusion when I went to upgrade and they tried charging me $8 for the upgrade. When I asked them about it, they continued to just tell me that I was misunderstanding what the sales rep had told me. Read that line and tell me how it could be interpreted as anything other than "upgrading is free, and you will have $6 credit towards next month". Ridiculous service, and I definitely won't be renewing.
At first we subscribed to Onliveserver located in Japan to test out our system on Nov 2019, everything's good until there's a...展開
DDOS attack hit us, causing us unable to reach our dedicated server. Submitted a ticket to them to ask for assistance but they cannot do anything to help, they can just trace the source of the IP and block it or allow a certain IP to be whitelisted first to remedy the situation. Lame technical support.
On top of it, their billing really sucks, which they actually double-charged us for the server subscription for consecutive 3 months (which is till Feb 2020). We submitted ticket to ask for refund, yet they only refunded 2 months and not the 3rd month, reopened the ticket and opened live chat but there's no reply from their customer service support. Their CS support also super duper slow and no standard.
Overall, DO NOT USE onliveserver! As they really have a bad customer service and technical support! You will lose much more money if you use their service!
