Elicitservers issues abound


Yesterday my email was being blocked because elicitservers ip has bad ratings. So I opened a ticket, actually 2 tickets for 2 different occurrences and I did not receive a reply after 24 hours. Again today while trying to send email it was again blocked and they were important... which emails aren't right?

Then, I go for lunch today only to find that my site and all my clients sites are down!! It has been over 1 hour already. Is it a PHP problem AGAIN?!

I have had service with them for over 1 year and it was great, this year, everything is changing and not for the better. I understand they are a fairly new host, but this is completely unacceptable.

I know I could search the forum, but seeing this is where I found out about Elicitservers to begin with, I am a little unsure if I should go with just any host who gets +++ from people. Could someone direct me to another canadian web host who can provide the uptimes they boast about?

Thanks.
Jason

LevelHosting.ca I think that is them. They are good imo. I use them and have not had any problems.

Unfortunately they don't offer reseller packages. They will soon, according to their site. Thanks... I would like to take advantage of their 50% off!

I'm in the same boat as you. The VPS I'm using with them is also down. Their entire website is down as well. Not looking real good.

I have some packages on Hawkhost and Crocweb (CA) - both since ~1y and both are ok.

I don't understand, why i am always so stupid to test a new host (like elicitservers) only to save some bucks / year...worthless.

Same deal here tami6699. My sites were blazing fast with them, and still are when things are running.

Chaotic-hostings, have you received credit for the last problem they had with PHP? I received a free year of hosting. The thing that is really burning me about this situation is that my clients can't even email me, seeing it's ALL down. I can only imagine the nasty emails I am going to have when/if this gets cleared up!

Here's hoping you had everything backed up locally!

No I'm fairly new with Elicit so I missed the drama with the PHP. I'm in the same situation with my clients. Their email going down is going to cause some serious problems that I'm not looking forward to.

I can't say I'm surprised, you do get what you pay for in the hosting world... hell, they have packages for less than $1.50/mo! Yikes. Take away the merchant fees and they are making pennies, never mind having to pay for servers and staff.

I have been attempting to download my cpanel files and always receive a "socket read fail" about half way through the download... frustrating.

No point in asking Elicitservers for help, seeing I still can't send email properly and they don't answer there tickets...
