    EpicVPS Review

    Well as I'm sure you have all seen his threads if not the search button is your friend

    So I posted some pretty hefty questions in his thread in the reviews section. The owner himself contacted me personally, he explained his network to me, some great features he's got cooking. So I took the bait, he had me hooked. I bought his mid-level plan, figured ok cool "Lets put him to the test" got my VPS in about 4 minutes, running. I thought ok cool this is pretty nice so far. Jumped into the root, did some WGETing around - decided ok whats a good fast mirror to really put his bandwidth to the test.

    Thats right, its faster then every single dedicated server I have ever been with my entire life.

    That was so fast, I minimized putty for a moment to change something and as I reopened it, it was done. Basically I about crapped myself, so then I went ahead and started running some apps, sure enough his 16 gig, Quad Xeon core server ran without a hitch. Everything I tossed at it opened instantly and responded as if it was my own personal computer.

    So if anyone is looking to give a VPS a shot - I really recommend trying out EpicVPS first - he treats you right, and the product is worth double what he charges.

    This is my first review, I give this company a stamp of approval I work in a professional market doing technical support. I work with high perfomance servers all day this takes the cake.

    -Steve

    PS: THANKS RAGHAV!!!! You are an amazing person, your going to go far in this business.

    They seem to rent servers from TMS since the IP you listed is TMS's IP. http://iptools.com/dnstools.php?tool....168&submit=Go

    Good luck.

    I've got one of their $10 VPS and yes it's IP is reporting tailormadeservers.com
    I'm based in the UK and I wasn't expecting much in terms of connectivity seeing as though we're talking middle America (Dallas) rather than East Coast but I've got to admit I've put up a test Coppermine gallery and it's loading quicker than a VPS I've got in London!
    Early days yet but that's not bad! :-)

    Yes, we do rent our VPS nodes from TMS. They have been great so far, issuing additional IP's and software licenses briskly when needed.

    I'd like to thank Steve and slowdive for posting an honest review, I hope we continue to keep you happy

    I know that EpicVPS has been new to the community as per 'VPS Providers' and their site looks pretty fine and dandy, along with thier plans.

    ==(> On another note, I spoke to Amaresh via AIM and he sounds like a really nice guy.

    Hope EpicVPS is around for awhile. btw, Nice network.

    Thanks for the lengthy review and be sure to keep us updated!

    I would also like to add that so far EpicVPS has been fantastic! I will be posting a full review as now I have only had their $10 VPS for a mere 24 hours, but the service, speed of the servers and network so far have been way above par.

    Keep it up epicvps!

    Replying to a ticket in 3-6 minutes is doable for a new company. This all depends on the size of the company obviously..

    How many servers do you have at the moment and how many VPSes do you host on each server?

    Thanks. I really appreciate your honesty.

    I've also taken the bait and got an entry vps from EpicVPS and will be moving in during the following few days.

    They've been great so far, but I'll post a more throughout review in a few months.

    Yea I was probably a little premature with only having it for a short period, but I tell you what - the longer I been using it the more I'm enjoying it. I've recently scraped my HostGator dedi for them. I pay about 100$ less to, and I get double ram, more cpu power, and more storage/bandwidth! Figure that out, anyway I'm really happy here so far, I scrapped cPanel to try out the LXAdmin they bundle with all there servers for free and it works like a charm, does everything cPanel does - needs a little more thinking but its a great alternative to cPanel. Anyway thats just my 2 cents, now make change for a dollar.

    Thanks for the reviews. To be honest, I looked at the website and it looked like they are developed and here to stay. They appear to have good quality as well.

    I'm getting worried about the frequent downtime. On April 29 my vps was down for over an hour. EpicVPS told me one of their clients had a DDoS attack. Today I'm noticing more downtime. At the moment I can't access my vps and I don't know why it's down or when it'll be up again.

    This really doesn't look good.

    Same here. I think it's hosted on the same server as the VPSs (which is not good as I can't access their support desk).

    Yes, now my VPS is down as well. For those who care the domin is: wiredhawk.com
    I guess I was too eager to sign up for an account on their Entry plan. Luckly they have 15 days
    money back guarantee. So this unnoticed downtime isn't good Think I will request my money back and go for some better managed plan like LiquidWeb or Knownhost instead. Can't even get in touch with their support e-mail

    Hello,

    Your servers will be up in just about time.

    Please be patient.

    Even If I apologize it would be less for the downtime which has occurred.

    Warm Regards,

    I spoke with Jose Raul of Support, it seems service has returned;
    If your VPS is not back up, he advised to login to HyperVM and reboot it yourself.

    If that does not work, please open a ticket with support he said.

    Happy to help / relay information.

    I tried booting it myself via HyperVm no luck. Their main site is still down.

    I am planning on requesting a full refund. They did have nice fast servers but they are still new and will need a bit of time to iron out their initial problems.

    I am trying to login in their control panel (secure.epicvps.com) where you can post support tickets etc and it still is down. My HyperVM has gone online as of now.

    It is interesting to note that the kernel update was done without any preliminary notice nor were any of the administrators available in the online chat during this time.

    I already replied before that we're working on it.

    The kernel update is being done after downtime, because maybe things can happen again so we're just taking precautions.

    I know a 'downtime' is something which no one wants, but this has come by itself.

    https://secure.epicvps.com/ our site is working.

    Again I apologize for the troubles caused...

    We are working on it, many of the VPS are online !
