technology - my previous WebHost failed to upgrade their hardware, leaving me no choice but to research different hosting companies. When I searched and came across A2Hosting, the breakdown of their hosting services and their truly hassle-free money-back guarantee showed me the confidence they have in their service and confirmed for me that their company would provide dependable and reliable support when dealing with their customers. I have since recommended my clients and friends to use their services!
Now company has changed his rules, Now money is everything for you. I Had purchased a plan before 3-4 months. Now company has...展開
removed plan and that plan is not available for new customers. While i purchased the plan , the executive told me that i will get all the benefits which will be available at the time of renewal. But now company is saying that they will not provide any discount either purchase a higher plan or renew it without any discount means at about double cost. its very frustrating. they are not ready to listen. They told me that I can change my plan, then they told me that you have to pay 25$ for changing the plan, again they told me that it was a mistake and no need to pay. Again they told me that there was a misunderstand I have to pay. again they told me that your 25$ fees is waived off. Are you playing with the customers ? Choosing A2 hosting is my big mistake.
A few months back, we started using Psychz for our DDoS protection through a GRE tunnel. Their new Chicago PoP was particular...展開
ly attractive because they were offering a decent blend and good capacity from the start, and they were offering us a good price.
Things started off well enough. We paid them for a few hours of their network admins' time just to make sure the setup was done properly. Unfortunately, this was only the start of a number of problems that caused massive quality of service issues for our customers as we deployed the new solution. Essentially, inbound traffic would be served to our full-time mitigated customers through a Psychz GRE tunnel from their Chicago PoP. We expected some overhead going in, and lower speeds than a cross-connect or direct peering, but what we got out of it was entirely ridiculous.
Long story short, we were only able to download ~30Mbps through the Psychz Chicago GRE tunnel. Not MB/s, but Mbps - which equates to about 3.7MB/s of actual download speeds through a GRE tunnel purportedly capable of 1Gbps. After weeks of back and forth discussions with staff at all levels of the company, including a personal Skype group with senior management, we weren't able to get anywhere. At one point, one of the managers admitted to giving us false promises on their attempted fixes - in essence, admitting to lying to us. It's also worth mentioning that the ticket staff were entirely worthless - the clearly outsourced support, assuming they ever responded at all, were perhaps the most generic and canned we've ever dealt with.
We eventually gave up and set up a GRE tunnel through USDedicated as a temporary solution. This was much better - we're able to push 600-700Mbps through their tunnel without any issues to speak of; much closer to the realistic overhead of a modern GRE tunnel. Because of this, and because of certain information we received from a third party, we can only assume that their newer PoPs are using substandard older-generation hardware to serve GRE tunnels.
I sincerely wish we had a better experience with Psychz. I think colocating or renting from them directly is probably a better overall play. But our experience using them as a third party, but closely located, mitigation provider was an - excuse the pun -unmitigated disaster.
I believe Psychz is growing and expanding far too fast for their own good. I wish they would focus more of their time and effort on making their current PoPs fantastic instead of offering service in every possible corner of the globe at rock-bottom pricing and, according to our experience, rock-bottom quality.
I want to be clear. I want companies like Pscyhz to do well. Mitigation is largely lacking, especially in locations that are relatively underserved like Chicago or Sao Paulo or Singapore, etc. I just wish they would do it a little better.
