    hostmania/transoptics

    Hi,

    Let me first start off by saying this is in no way an attempt to bash, or make transoptics / hostmania look bad.

    I think their offers are great, and i have heard good things about them.

    Anyway, the reason why i decided to start this thread was

    1. i was looking at http://www.webhostingtalk.com/showth...6&pagenumber=4

    and that thread, is like on the 3RD page of the Dedicated server specials... so not many people look there anymore

    so i figured id start a thread here (This one) to get more attention / answers quicker than waiting for someone to go to http://www.webhostingtalk.com/showth...6&pagenumber=4 IF they even go

    Anyway. I was wondering..

    Did anyone buy those p4 servers that they were offering for $139?

    I just want to know if anyone got theirs yet. If you got it, could you tell me what your experience has been like so far.

    Also another reason why i started this thread was because I saw this thread that was started by eservers http://www.webhostingtalk.com/showth...threadid=64947

    they are also offering the same server, and from what i know, they are reselling space ?? in the hostmania dc??

    Or something like that. Its kind of blurry right now, i'm not sure who actually providers the servers..

    Anyway, the point is, i am buying it from eservers. they offered it. eservers has REALLY good support, they are really nice guys, and they respond fast.

    i bought the p4 1.6ghz from eservers on 8/5/2002 - they said within 5 business days it will be up

    So no big deal, i can wait.

    the guys from ear host tell me they bought a server from chavvon (one cogent, one internap) from this thread http://www.webhostingtalk.com/showth...6&pagenumber=4

    they said they were suppose to get it yesterday (yesterday as in 8/9/2002) but they never got it.

    now seeing as they never got their server on time, and seeing as how my server will be in the same dc, it kind of scares me.

    I'm not saying they are going to delay on mine, or that they are bad, I just wanna see what's goin on thats all.

    So, simple... Did anyone get their hostmania server yet?

    Not yet, but 5 business days from sunday means 1 week (2 days off).

    Most of people here trust eservers and It isn't without reason

    Just wait a few days

    Don't know if it helps you but I got a Cogent server and although it was delayed a lot (some weeks) I did get it and Chavvon has been very quick to reply and in general very friendly.

    * Hostmania.not?

    Hostmania.net seems to have vanished! Did someone forget to renew their registration or has something bad happened? I tried to email Chavvon and it bounced back at at least the speed of light, maybe even faster.

    I want to say that I have spoke to Chavvon a few times on the phone as well as on AIM about there service and it is rather impressive. Chavvon is a very friendly and kind person as he is also a good person to talk to when you want to chat he is friendly. You don't find that in many people at all.

    I agree. These people at TransOptics are a pleasure to deal with.
    I admit that it can take a while for your server to be set up, but when you get it, it's more than worth it !

    Regards,

    Carl

    i fully agree ... chavvon is a nice guy to speak to, and i've heard great things about hostmania ... i just wish they'd let us know when massive delays like this are encountered.

    Hmm..

    Well he / they may be really friendly and all, but to me what it all boils down to is actually getting your server on time or atleast a day or two after your promised date..?

    Ouch...

    I hope this doesn't happen to me

    I didn't order from hostmania or anything
    just from eservers

    they did send an email

    so I hope my server is online on tuesday

    same here, I have my fingers crossed

    This is the second time I am buying a server from someone other than RackShack. The first time was from lightOne (oh yeah! remember that name?) and that was one big nightmare, I am hoping this doesnt turn into one.

    I have servers with Chavvon Hostmania and found there setup and support to be excellent.

    I did wait quite a few days for them but its worth the wait cos there systems are fast and Chavvon is always willing to take time out to help you.

    Regards,

    Brian

    Nice. What kind of servers do you have? What are the specs? How much are they a month?

    Are any of them the p4's for $139/mo ?

    Let us know

    thanks

    AWESOME. This is certainly a positive sign. This makes me worry less, now that i can see that there are people that are actually getting it now...

    I still feel bad for maxbear though

    4th of August. We got the P4, 1GB ram deal. 1 internap and 1 cogent. Cogent is being hooked up tommorow. One of our clients even got an average of 35MS doing a ping. Very nice speeds, worth the wait.

    Here is the latest update from Chavvon -

    He said they are now building servers outside of their provisioning system (presumably down because of the domain issue). He also said he is contacting everyone individually. The ETA is tomorrow.

    I am a direct client of hostmania, so all I could say is this is for me.

    I surely hope we (direct client) at least get priority over eservers.biz.

    eservers told me the other day that the ETA is tuesday as in aug 13th
