    I do have a dedicated IP. Unfortunately this doesn't help, as the blocklist is blocking a different IP (173.192.70.174) -- what appears to be our communal mail server. My contingency plan is to set up a VPS off-site as a mailserver for my customers. It's a step that I wasn't hoping to take this early, but I can't have customer emails being bounced through no fault of their own..

    Hello,

    Though I am complete new here, however I have been following WHT for more than 2-3 months now and only registered here now.

    If I remember correctly, I read in this thread only that EZPZ was considering other options (outside Softlayer), as I understood.

    Could be a help if Dan or someone else from EZPZ can throw some light on the situation.

    Thanks.

    Investigations on this server are also showing a drive issue. Needless to say we are not going to be using Softlayer for future servers and will be seeking another provider in Dallas.

    Anyone affected by this will be credited as per our SLA.
    After many days, we continue in Softlayer.

    they are not giving dedicated ip to use as shared for reseller's website..yesterday I had a long talk with them..
    first one of their staff confirmed me that I can get ip, i made payment but then they refused to give me ip. Dan said if i provide him justification for SSL then I can get, I explained him im not going to use it for ssl but as shared ip for my 35 domains under my reseller account, but they excused that
    Unfortunately we cannot issue dedicated IP's for use as a dedicated shared IP as RIPE guidlines have changed.
    and refunded my payment

    but overall they are nice and much much better then several other hosts, and Dan is always very very helpful

    Just get an ssl and install WHMCS which comes free anyway.

    They are right about the RIPE thing though..

    EZPZ are very good and you get good service for the money and when they sort out a few niggles with the servers they will be top!

    Sorry for upping this thread, but I'm confused, I thought that if I take a reseller account from EZPZ I could host my clients in my own IP. Don't know about that...

    So, if I request an IP for SSL.. CanI host my cpanel clients with my own IP? Maybe that solves the problem.

    And about Backups, I'm interested in UK Hosting, so, will my clients have access to their R1Soft Backups thought their CPanel accounts?
    Is there any way to make my own backups every day?

    Sorry for using this thread to ask these questions, but the topic is on the table.

    Also I will send them a ticket regarding questions.

    Thanks in advance.
    Regards from Spain.

    All you say above is correct.

    Get an ssl for you site and ask to assign this IP as your reseller shared IP.

    R1 is ok with this

    Yesterday morning I bought a dedicated IP with SSL, they have the wrong IP, my client was 8 hours without a website, even now my client has SSL

    ezpz does not respond

    not enough to have a long and good reputation, we must also offer a good service

    Lanfr: You submitted a ticket providing the SSL a few hours ago then bumped it an hour later, sending it back to the bottom of the queue.

    If we're dealing with high ticket volumes it'll only add further delay.

    Dan, I'm sure it's not your fault, I followed Jamie.

    I opened this ticket for SSL with Dedicated IP yesterday morning at 11.26

    check
    Ticket # 922953

    Today I opened a new ticket:

    check
    Ticket # 248913

    because the problem was not solved.

    My client was 8 hours without a website, this is not possible.
    This evening, the site is back up, but the SSL certificate was not working.

    I've never used EZPZ, but have always heard good things about their hosting and support.

    I however had the misfortune of using Softlayer before, well, was actually forced to after the buy-out of The Planet, and that was one of the reasons why we looked for a new network partner that was actually professional and used new equipment. SL installed 4 servers for us one day, 3 had to have drives replaced within 5 hours.

    Overall EZPZ is a very good host and Dan will always try to help out. The last few months there were a few hickups, to bad about the large downtime of the server and the very old backups that got placed back. They only offered a month of free hosting for such a large issue. Despite that i still have trust in them.

    Only thing i think is less with EZPZ: response times on tickets are sometimes fast but sometimes very slow. They really should work on that.

    However, even today, I have 2 VPS down for 5 hours, and still are not up.

    Every day, I really do not know what to say to my clients.

    Mine is not an attack against ezpz, also because Dan is a great guy, but there is always something that does not work.

    According to one phtographer that presents himself as the utmost expert and the last word in hosting, the problems are due to offering Master Reseller plan. I for one believe Dan is competent enough to manage such a set up and knows more about it.

    Well, I would like to chime in...I find the support very friendly but tbh, EZPZ is starting to go down in my books. Really people, stop arguing with those that have complaints!! Complaints only IMPROVE on customer service or weed out the bad providers!

    Seriously, the public doesn't come here to complain just for the sake of complaining!

    1. For the past few days, the server that I am on has been running very slow every morning. I opened a ticket and was told by Jamie that the backups were running. I asked why the backups were running so late in the morning and he said that they could not be held accountable if clients run backups from their side. to which I of course responded that 1 client should not bring the server down. To which Jamie then fessed up and said that it was the server backup running. so I asked why it was running in office hours and he said that the backup just ran over it's time. I then asked why it was happening so frequently and was never given a straight answer. I suggested that the backups should be run earlier to allow ample time for them to finish and was told that it would be taken under advisement but the backups start at 4am. This morning now AGAIN, the server was slow to which I was told that the backups have now been killed and my server has been bumped up to the top of the queue for upgrade. This after already being told on the 9th feb the following:
    The server is being built tomorrow and the migration will being at the start of next week.
    This was last week which has come and gone.

    2. In the past 2months, my server has been put on a blacklist twice to which it has been removed twice

    3. My Disk space in cPanel was being reported incorrectly and was reflecting that all my clients had unlimited disk space. After numerous calls from clients asking if I had changed my policies, I begged EZPZ for an answer to which I was told that cPanel was looking at it.

    4. Two accounts of mine just simply disappeared and the blame was put on me that my reseller account user was hacked but they couldn't prove it. If a hacker was that malicious, why only delete 2 accounts? Why not delete many more?? After me raising this concern, I was basically told to scan my PC to which I have 3 different scanners that run daily checking and cleaning my PC for anything that could cause a breach.

    On top of saying all of the above, I have to admit that I LOVE EZPZ! The support that I get from the staff is what I want! You can have crappy service but without great support, you are lost! so even after all my frustrations, I'm not going anywhere until it is REALLY evident that it's time to leave.

    Dan and his team do a great job no matter what complaints I have at this time! NO ONE!! and I mean NO ONE can account for hardware failures unless you really drag the hardware through your ass.

    Peace peeps! happy hosting....

    I thing there is a big problem with R1Soft backups. I have heard lots of other companies complaining about R1Soft and I believe that must be some alternative to it.

    I mean you either have something that it works or just bit it and get something else that does the job.

    Ive been a member for a while:
    http://i39.tinypic.com/f13kp.png
    So I think I can given a decent review....

    I have a reseller account and (2) VPS's with them:
    http://i42.tinypic.com/20zyctd.png

    Price: There prices are comparable with other competitors. There are other providers with lower prices but I and most people have no problem paying a little more for the below reason...

    Support: EZPZ provides top notch support. I have experience with alot of hosting providers but Ive NEVER seen tickets replied so fast.. Their support is second to none IMO... Dan, has helped me on so many occasions. I will gladly pay more than what other providers are charging for peace of mind.... I know for a fact when I submit a ticket, it will be dealt with swiftly!!!

    Downtime: I dont care who you host with... You will NEVER have 100% uptime. Ive had some down time but not long and it was dealt with asap.... A provider cannot be blamed for hardware failure... (Unless it happens all the time, and thats not the case here)

    Complaints: R1 backups were disabled for a while because of a conflicting issue but that was solved and now we have R1 backups. Being able to access them via cPanel ROCKS!!!!

    Advantage:
    The GREAT support, and FREE SSL's!!!!


    I love EZPZ. I sleep well at night and have the up-most confidence in Dan and EZPZ!!!! They have my vouch!!!

    I have absolutely NO faith in R1Soft.

    When the server crashed last year, R1Soft did not deliver.

    Yesterday I was informed that we have NO up to date backups because of a crash on the R1soft Server.

    Today, the server had to be rebooted forcefully due to R1Soft backups hanging the machine.

    sigh....EZPZ!!! GET RID OF R1Soft already!

    They did try an alternative solution however it was no good. I'm also pretty sure they also have a secondary backup solution should R1Soft fail.

    I desperately needed a restore of one of my databases and they couldn't help me. I sat for 5hours fixing my data cause I had to manually go through everything. And I'm still not sure its all accurate now.

    If the solutions out there are not working, and the only option is to invest more money, then thats what must be done.
    My previous host never had these backup problems.....what are they doing different? Maybe spending more money? Don't know.....but something is different!
