another thrilling nordicvps story


First post, go figure, never actually felt the need to register to give my two cents about a provider until now. I signed up with nordicvps about a week ago. Three days later I was contacted threw email by a member of their support team, "Sean" to be exact. The email stated that they no longer accepted orders in their chicago d.c. however the box was online and I was actively using it. With the box only costing $5/month I wasn't upset and replied to the email accepting the change, just asking for time to transfer my most current work. Go figure, box goes offline with no reply from support, and before I'm able to even log in. It's been a few days now and my attempts at reaching a support member have thus failed, which seems to be a common pattern on here. To prevent from writing a short story, whenever someone suggest a provider, do your homework, and steer clear of this company. Yes $5/month is a great bargain, but is it really worth the headache. Customers drive business, shouldnt be the other way around.

What kind of business is this?

Leaving and getting customers when you want?
You are their customers does not matter you pay $5 or $500, they must care for your data and every thing.

Sorry for your poor experience with them, I hope next time they will accept customers/orders that are advertised on their site.

That guy likes to spam his clients/former clients. I still receive mail from him when I am no longer a client and there is no unsubscribe link from his poor announcements.

Sorry to hear that you got into these troubles. I hope they will reply and let you get your work.

Yet another hosting company gives the hosting trade a bad name. I guess they are right when they say, if an offer is too good to be true, it aint true.

Sure, though wouldn't it be a good idea to just reply to every support ticket you receive, versus the ones that make their experience public by posting on this forum. Just a thought.

Subject: [Ticket ID: 952070] Regarding your order

Hello

We no longer accept orders in Chicago, can we transfer/create your VPS in California or do you want a refund?

Best regards
Sean

I wouldn't consider myself a customer, i believe you treat them a bit better, anyhow due to me being unable to send private messages because of my post count, and your inability to check emails, I just decided to paste the entire ordeal. Believe me now?

The support terminated the VPS in response to massive SPAM abuse reports. Normally we suspend a server and get in touch with the customer -- in your case, your VPS was provided a "bad" IP, from a previous customer.

I am sorry for the loss of any data but the support reacted fast on this case since we received a large amount of abuse reports in short time.

We will get in touch with you shortly over the ticket system.

Please note that I fail to find your response to the tickets in the ticket system or the logs. We never received your response/tickets.

Personally, I don't think that is right. Spam reports or not, there was no reason to terminate the VPS. It could be taken offline until the issue is dealt with, but there was no reason to delete all of the data.

Just my 2c.
